It’s true! This was the holiday weekend, back in 2013, that we started up Comparative Geeks and got this whole thing going. We’re now coming off of by far our longest hiatus, and it’s good to be back! Hopefully you’ve noticed that the podcast is back – remember you can subscribe to that on iTunes or find the feed here: http://feeds.feedburner.com/ComparativeOpinions
At this point in our lives, now with the Geek Baby and the Nerd Baby, the podcast is by far the easiest thing for us to do. It takes that back-and-forth discussion time that we tended to put into posts and turns it into a process where you can join along! Hopefully you’ve given us a listen and enjoy it – let us know what else you’d like to see us doing with that. Week in Geek should be back soon, a news podcast is a bit daunting after a hiatus, I must say!
We did have a Star Trek post go up Saturday by Hannah – hopefully you caught that! And we’ll try to keep some written content coming, it’s just gotten harder to find the time! That should improve with time.
(That’s the theory).
Meanwhile, David had thoughts of trying to dive back into The Astral Chronicles, but is now not sure. Spending these 5 years as media consumers and critics, he’s realized he’s spent a lot of time saying what he likes to see is new stories – and maybe The Astral Chronicles isn’t quite there. This is leading to thoughts of a more commentary/non-fiction webcomic, rather than a story-based fiction webcomic. Stay tuned!
In the coming months we’ll also probably make the transition back to WordPress off of our self-hosted site. Life got too busy not only for us but for all of our contributors, making the push to really grow the site too much to sustain. That’s okay – we’re happy still with where we’re at right now! Thanks for sticking with us, dear readers.
