Just as a reminder to anyone who wants to participate, Nerdy 9th is this Sunday. Because it does fall on a weekend, I'm going to be posting on the 10th, but hey, whenever the spirit moves you, if it does, is all good.
The rules, such as they are, are simple: for 24 hours, from midnight to midnight your local time on the 9th, you just post positive nerd love stuff. Talk about what you like, not about what you don't.
If you want to tag the appropriate posts with #nerdy9th
, that's great, but if you don't, that's also fine.
And that's pretty much it.
Why do I feel the need to make a production out focusing on the positive? Well, because we nerds, geeks, whatever you want to call us have a tendency to define ourselves by what we don't like sometimes. And over the course of a month that negativity can get a little thick. Taking one day a month to celebrate the good stuff, your personal good stuff, is a palate cleanser. Not just for you but for everybody who follows you.
And, just as important, it introduces other people to your 'stuff' and your take on it. Your fandoms and passions and nerdy loves. Which is fun for everybody.
