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?
I’m going to consider myself a bit of a hybrid as far as this set of questions goes. I read all the Weekly Geeks posts, but I only participated a few times. I wasn’t a full-fledged member of the club until this year. So, I’ll answer as I feel qualified to from the first list.
Being a Weekly Geek means being a part of seeking to establish community among book bloggers. This was something Dewey was all about, a big part of why (I think) she started Weekly Geeks. It also means honoring that legacy, though. I love that it’s so inclusive — anyone can, and is welcome to, join/play along/participate at whatever level. Those are the same things I enjoy about it, at this point.
My most memorable Weekly Geek was week 16, in which each participant interviewed another about a book that needed to be reviewed, and the pair of interviews were posted on both blogs. (Here’s mine.)
I’m not coming up with anything that needs to be improved …
