Weekly Geeks - January 18, 2009

"What it Means to Be a Weekly Geek"

This week's question is from Joanne of The Book Zombie:

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?

For those just joining us, why did you sign up for Weekly Geeks? What would you like to see here?

This is only my third time to participate in Weekly Geeks (twice in two weeks though, so I am off to a good start in 2009.) Since I am brand-new to the Weekly Geeks, I am going to address the second part of this week's question:

I decided to finally sign up for Weekly Geeks because I love the sense of community that it promotes. While I have always enjoyed reading everyone else's Weekly Geeks posts, I just didn't think that anyone would care to read mine! When I first started my book blog, I thought all I should ever blog about was books, books and more books (and of course lots of reviews.) I loved that other bloggers shared so much of their lives, but I was hesitant to do that. Plus, I was just a little afraid to commit to a weekly post.

This year, I made some blogging resolutions -- one is to be a bigger part of the blogging community. In addition to leaving more comments, I also decided to start participating in Weekly Geeks. So here I am and here's to hoping that I stick with it!

Great to see new bloggers. I love that. I am looking forward to get to know you and your blog and hope to see you doing many more WGs in the future :-)

I love the weekly memes, but sometimes I get overwhelmed by them. :) I do them when I can fit them in or feel that I have something to add to the discussion.

I know how you feel about wanting to stick with. So far so good for me as well but the nice thing is if you skip a week just come back the next. It is nice to have the flexibility.

Welcome :) I'm glad you've decided to join in the fun! I love reading everyone's posts because it's so interesting to get a behind-the-scenes look into everyone's lives!

Well done Julie. I look forward to seeing what you do each week. I'm still trying to catch up with people's posts as you can see.

I just joined up as well. It looks like an amazing group! I'm glad that you joined up as well.

Did you just add the tabs to your blog or have they always been there? I just noticed them and have no idea how to do that..any tips? Or, do you have someone help with your blog design?

I have a hard time deciding how much personal stuff to share, too. I have another blog that's all about me and my family, so when I started the book blog it was supposed to be just for book reviews and the like. But, I notice that the book blogs I most look forward to reading are the ones that blend in a personal touch. I'm still finding the right balance for me.
