Weekly Geeks 2009-02: Being a WG


This week an unfinished person posted our Weekly Geeks assignment, thanks, uh, person! Joanne put forth the question:
For those who have been with the group, either from the start or joined within recent months, what does being a member mean to you? What do you enjoy about the group? What are some of your more memorable Weekly Geeks that we might could do again? What could be improved as we continue the legacy that Dewey gave us?
I'd been blogging for a couple of months before I actually posted my first WG entry, though I'd followed the meme every week. The ideas were almost always interesting and fun, creative, community-oriented or educational. And so I kept coming back every week. There were only a couple that didn't interest me - one was a scavenger hunt that looked like it would take all week to do! I loved the weeks when we intentionally "met" other bloggers, for interviews or comparisons. I've gotten to know a lot of wonderful people through Weekly Geeks and that's what keeps me coming back.

What I love about being a "member" of this amazing group is that anyone can join at any time, and there are no expectations. And it's fun and interesting.

I like the flexibility of it too. Thanks for stopping by.

I like the fact that you can participate on your own terms. There is no "right" way to be a weekly geek :) That and the fact that everyone is welcome to join in the fun!

I agree with Pussreboots the flexibility is a good thing.

The sense of community is agreat part of WG. I enjoyed some of the challenges last year, particularly where they set us a relatively simple challenge. I liked seeing what others had done.

I agree Terri it's a good way to 'meet' other bloggers and find out a little about them. There was one geek week where we had to find things in common with other bloggers and that was hard...but good fun.

Agree, agree!

Isn't it great to see all the different ways people approach the same instructions.

I follow the weekly geeks but have never posted on one yet. They look like fun. Hope you have a wonderful week.

Yeah, what Becky said! ;) That's one thing that encouraged me to join... it seemed very "laid-back" and like anything goes (within reason).

I'm loving this group and getting to know you guys!!
