So here we have it! Our favourite nerdy thing of 2014!!!
Our Number 1: Starting Flock of Nerds!!
It is no surprise that Flock of Nerds is our favourite nerdy thing from 2014 since it is OUR nerdy thing from 2014. Channeling all of our collective nerdom into one productive activity makes us feel significantly less guilty about how we choose to spend our time. Playing games, watching movies and talking about Magic are some of our favourite things and being able to share them with other people has always been the best part.
Myles and I tried to start up the website in 2012, but we didn’t quite know what to do with it. There were a few stray blog posts, a single board game review, and this video we made of the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF):
We’ve come a long way, I think.
At the urging of Jon, whose ear was bent many a day by my incessant ramblings on the nerdy stuff that Myles and I were up to, we started the Nerducating Jon podcast (which is on hiatus, but we hope to resume in the new year). I rolled up my sleeves and dove into WordPress, and got the site back up and running.
Then along came Chris, whose contribution to Flock of Nerds has been immeasurable. His board games reviews have broadened the parameters of the web site and they are some of our most popular posts. Also, his relentless scheduling of articles has kept us motivated to create content on an equally relentless schedule. It’s been tough, but very satisfying.
This next year is going to be really interesting for Flock of Nerds as it will be the year of growth for the YouTube channel as well as the website. We have huge plans for 2015 and we can’t wait to share them with the world.
So, from all of us at Flock of Nerds – HAVE A HAPPY AND NERDY NEW YEAR!
See you in 2015!!
