So this is the 1000th and final post on the comparativegeeks.wordpress.com site; some of you might have noticed some updates made to our social media accounts already. All future content will only be posted to the newly set up and self-hosted http://comparativegeeks.com. This has been such a great place to share some of our thoughts, opinions, views, etc. WordPress.com has such a wonderful community and there is a part of us that hates leaving. Thank you everyone who has joined us here, commenting, reading, and engaging on these topics. Hopefully it will not be too much of a leap to have you join us at the new site.

By doing a self-hosted site there are definitely features that we can add through customizations that would not be available if we kept the site here. We are excited about this new endeavor, but we are sad to leave.

It is not about changing what we are doing, but trying to improve and expand. We will be increasing to posting something at least once a day. Sundays will always be the Comparative Opinions weekly podcast, which we have officially launched so look on the site for that or it should be available on iTunes shortly. The other piece that we are hoping to add is a little bit more community engagement. Forums have been set up to allow for a different type of discussion topics and threads to keep going that can hopefully function a bit better than just a comments section.

This blog started as David and I just wanted to talk about things that we geek out about and we want it to grow beyond just our voice. We have many contributors who have said they would be willing to help write things and we are so grateful to all of them. If you are interested in potentially being a contributor whether it is one post or recurring you can email comparativegeeks@gmail.com. The last three-and-a-half years has definitely been a journey and hopefully they will continue to be so in to the future.

We’re Headed to a New Site! – Weekend Coffee Share

Pirate Mugs

If we were having coffee, I’d say I hope you noticed that we’ve been working on moving. We’ve mentioned it on the site… maybe not as much as we could or should have. I don’t know. We weren’t wanting to direct people to the site yet, since it was a work-in-progress… We’ve worked, and there’s progress!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you to check out ComparativeGeeks.com in all its glory! We carried over some of this month’s content, so the site wasn’t barren… it also has kept us writing good posts instead of throw-away, because we’re making use of them twice 🙂

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that after you subscribe to the new blog site, you should follow us on social media too if you haven’t. Make sure you can keep up. Our Facebook page has been going for years, but we’ve been working harder to share fun things to it lately. We have a new combined Twitter, however, so that you can make sure to get all the updates from Comparative Geeks, from all of our contributors: https://twitter.com/comparativegeek. We also have a presence on Instagram, Tumblr, and Google+, if those are your cup of tea to my cup of coffee.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that after you subscribe to the new blog and follow us on social media, you should totally check out our new Podcast, Comparative Opinions! Inspired by the blog series of the same name, this is a podcast where we get together for half an hour, talk about a topic and a bit about our lives and geekiness, and then let you get on your merry way. The first episode has been submitted to iTunes, so hopefully it will be available there soon!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you this is post 999 on Comparative Geeks. At 1000, I think we may be turning into a pumpkin – this blog will stop posting, and you’ll want to be heading over to ComparativeGeeks.com instead. With the new site comes more contributors, daily posting, a forum for ongoing discussion, the weekly podcast, and more.

We’ve gotten to this point through all the great help and support and readership and comments and shares and encouragement from all of you, our readers. Thank you so much. We have enjoyed blogging here for three and a half years, and it was time to step up or step back. We are stepping up in a big way, and we hope you join us for the ride.

If you haven’t yet, after clicking all those links above, make sure to check out the rest of the coffee linkup over on PartTimeMonster!
