I've been watching vlog brothers for a while, and they kept mentioning nerdfighteria and nerdfighters so I thought I would give it a go and see what it was like! So far it's been good, everyone's been welcoming and accepting etc... just have to get used to everything on here!
How long have you been on here or 'part of' nerdfighteria??
Oh, a little over a month now :)
welcome Chloe. generally one thinks of people compromising aspects of their personality to avoid the nerd label... so, huzzah for progress...i guess
Yeah.. that is a good point, being 'nerdy' does come with certain stigmas!! I suppose it's dependant on whom you are talking about! seeing as being 'nerdy' seems to be a fashion statement at the moment, I constantly see people saying they are 'nerds' because they have read one book or watched a series of dr who.. But I suppose, if you want to be a nerd you can, that's what's great about this place, they pretty much accept everyone!
Apparently I should introduce myself here, so hello! I'm Erin, an American nerdfighter. I found out about vlogbrothers about a year ago, although I had initially heard Hank's Harry Potter music on that Helping Haiti Heal podcast a year before that. That introduction to Hank Green was also my first experience with wizard rock, so I have a lot to thank the nerdfighter world for. I am in every way a nerd, and like things such as Doctor Who and Harry Potter and Merlin and Sherlock and Downton Abbey and a billion other British things. I'm also a writer and an artist, although not in the sense that I have published anything or have had anything I've created seen by anyone but my own friends. So yeah, that's me. This place is cool. Bye.
Hi Erin, and welcome to the Ning! :D
How you liking the place so far? :)
It's pretty cool, thanks for asking! It's a great extension to the vlogbrothers world.
welcome Erin. not that it's a huge deal, but if you don't mind my asking, why are you just now joining?
Well, I had just never really been on this website, despite that they mention it so frequently in videos. I don't really know why I never bothered to come see this, but I just...didn't. I dunno.
it's awesome that you're here now, whatever the case.
Yeah, I agree, this place is brilliant!
