Welcome to the new Comparative Geeks!

Hello and welcome! This is post exists because there was a little feature in WordPress that we did not realize existed: the ability to bring along our existing subscribers from the old site to the new one! We had grown quite the following on comparativegeeks.wordpress.com and many of you had followed us over to the new site, but for some of you (especially with us starting up over a holiday weekend), we may have just disappeared from your Reader feed or email subscription. We’re still here, and we’ve been going strong!

So what have you missed in the last few weeks from Comparative Geeks? Well, let’s see… we’ve had a series by Rose on Voltron: Legendary Defender on NetFlix:

Voltron Legendary Defender Kicks Giant Robot Reboot Ass

Voltron: Legendary Defender Post #2—Reinventing My Defender

Voltron: Legendary Defender Post #3 — Questions, Questions, Questions!

We’ve also joined the world in discussing Pokemon Go, from a variety of perspectives:

Augmented Reality in Designed Spaces

Pokemon Go – Gotta Catch the Socialness!

Pokemon GO Is The New Devil And Other Thoughts.

We’ve been doing some new stuff too! For instance, we started a podcast called Comparative Opinions, which you can find here on the site, on iTunes, or can subscribe to via this link.

Comparative Opinions: Episode 1 – Introduction

Comparative Opinions: Episode 2 – Ranking the X-Men Franchise

Comparative Opinions: Episode 3 – Game of Thrones Season 6

We’ve started some new things as well, such as our Forums and David’s webcomic. A few places to start for those:

http://www.comparativegeeks.com/forums/topic/science-fiction-today-police-again/

The Astral Chronicles – an Introduction

And then there’s the sorts of things you’ve come to expect from Comparative Geeks: reviews, opinion pieces, and general geeking out. We’ve had a number of contributors already, and more in the wings writing and working on posts now. We could link to every post we’ve done this month… or we could let you find the things you like!

Login and Subscribe to Comparative GeeksSo the things to know for keeping up with us. Expect at least one post a day, many days there are two (like today with this post!). The podcast goes up on Sundays, the webcomic on Thursdays. Expect more contributors and more in general going on with the site as time goes on. Because of all of that, we have created a combined Twitter account which will share everyone’s articles: @comparativegeek. Head on over and give us a follow there! And we’re still active on Facebook as well.
If you’re looking for where and how to login to the site as a WordPress user, or how to subscribe in general, look no further than the top sidebar on the homepage! And that handy link to get you to a page where you can sign in with your WordPress credentials (circled in the image to the left). You can also comment on posts via Facebook, Twitter, or WordPress, or by being logged in to the site. Pretty sure the Forums require being logged in, but WordPress should work with that! Let us know if you run into any issues with these features.

In closing, we are so happy to have you with us, faithful followers. Comparative Geeks has been an enterprise years in the making, and it’s reached a next stage now – a stage that we want to bring you along to join us in!

  1. Whoa okay, this post loaded in an interesting way! Apparently our theme turns the links into embedded post blurbs. In the preview, they were just titles as links…
