Horsey to A3! Maveric of me I know!
Ok, I don't have a chessboard with me, nor am I an avid chess player particularly, but off the top of my head I think (and hope) that's a valid move, and therefore should have the chess fans onside immediately!
I've been thinking for a while how I should go about opening this blog, starting it off...that kind of thing - what should my opening gambit be. So I've thought to myself, "What is the point of my blog?", "What do I want to achieve?", and "Will anyone even see the sodding thing anyway?!".
I have decided it's fairly unlikely that there's going to be a huge amount of traffic to this blog, so I decided not to get too bogged down in the formalities - and just go with what comes to mind.
So what is the point of this blog? - well if you are reading this now (and you are in fact not me) - that is a good question to pose. Quite simply I am a geek - not in the traditional sense, I don't own a thick pair of glasses, or a pocket protector. I do not constantly have a calculator in my pocket to settle calculus based arguments, and nor do I particularly remember a lot of the calculus that I did learn back during my A-Levels. However I will soon be holding 2 degrees and 2 postgraduate qualification, love all things comic, fantasy, and sci-fi, and just last night played a game (during a power cut mind you) with a couple of friends to see if we could name (taking it in turns) Marvel and DC superheroes/vilains starting with A and ending with Z. We got stuck on Q, Y and Z (now I've had time to think about it though Quicksand, Yellow Claw and Zarek would have all been fine!)
For too long though has "Geekdom" been seen as a bad thing! I am in my early 20s at the moment, and finally celebrating my Geek. So what is the point of this blog? It is to celebrate all things geek!!
I have not fully decided what my first major post will be as of yet - but I have been party to the Final Fantasy XIII video preview recently - so I may have a bit of chat about that. I would like to review movies, talk about comics and generally have fun, inform people about things that interest me (and hopefully you - the reader!).
This will not be a blog which takes itself too seriously - but an informal chat to anyone who is interested in the kind of things that excite me.
I will be more then welcome to take any kind of recommendations from anyone about what I should be reading, watching or generally what is happening in the world of geek. I'll have a look and maybe scribble a few words regarding my thoughts and feelings on this blog.
If you think this kind of thing may interest you - subscribe - we could have fun! :o)
Muchos Lovos to you all!
