Can We Make the Ning Cool Again?

Okay I'll admit, it's been months since I've been on the Ning and way too long since I've talked to the nerdfighter friends I've made but I'm back and ready for discussion. Let's admit, Hank's video today was awesome. It settled some of our fears that the vlogbrothers would ever sell out and the community would disappear, but now we need to take action too.

The idea of the Vlogbrother's having millions of subscribers scares me. Are we mainstream? Probably. That doesn't really matter…

Where does the community start and fandom end?

Alex Day was the first YouTuber I ever followed, so the events of the past week have been fairly overwhelming.

I have dated emotionally manipulative people before, and I am willing to admit Alex probably didn't realize he was being as manipulative as he was because that's what I feel was going on in my own relationships. Unfortunately in a lot of cases men are taught that women are "shy" or need convincing to have a physical relationship with someone. Some, like Alex, seem to…

Distance in the World of Constant Connection

I currently find myself an university junior forced to return to my parents home in the arena of my former communities. My high school is only a 30 minute walk from my home, or a 10 minute drive taking stop lights into consideration if I had a car and could legally do so. But, there are none of my high school friends to be found. Most of them are away at their own colleges, working full time or already…

Proud to Be a Nerd Among Nerds

I've just joined the Nerdfighters, and I am so excited that this community exists. I grew up as kind of a closet nerd.  I mean, my whole family are nerds, so nerdiness is entirely accepted and encouraged at home. My older brother and I grew up with successive versions of Star Trek. Star Wars was a staple too; my brother had lots of Star Wars toys, and one Halloween we went as Luke and Leia. My mom even did the coiled braids at the sides of my head. I apparently took my princessly role very…

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask and he will tell you the truth."-Oscar Wild

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask and he will tell you the truth."-Oscar Wild

The fact that this quotes rings so true, amazes me because it is true isn't it? When you hand someone a mask they will speak without restraint, disclosing the most intimate details of their lives. They will throw themselves out there without fear of being judged and intern be reeled in with a group of new found friends to which they can relate, and…

I am terrible at keeping commitments! And enjoy talking about Charity Book.

I suck at doing what I said I would do! For everything I say I will do, I always fail at least part of it. For instance, at the beginning of the school year I decided I would write one short story every week, and post it on Friday. Well I tried to do it, and I got most of the stories written. Unfortunately, I missed November for NaNoWriMo, but that's not what I failed at the most. Two weeks into December, I stopped typing out stories. If I do this again, there will be much advanced planning.…

Nerdfighteria-- Not What I Expected

I joined Nerdfighteria after discovering the vlogbrothers channel on youtube. I then became engrossed with the idea of the society the Green brothers had created. A place where people could be themselves, a community where there was awesome all of the time.

I toyed around the idea of joining the ning for about two months. I just couldn't get the idea out of my head that there might be a place where everything can be laid out and perfect. Where nerds could be nerds and jokes were jokes.…

Omegle...a small scale of the online community?

A call for help to all of Nerdfighteria!! ... and also what's new

I know I haven't been too active lately but I wanted to try to reach out to the community. Some of you know that I'm not just a handsome and incredibly savvy (nerdy) consultant. I also happen to be a young, handsome, and incredibley savvy (nerdy) prof at Bay Path College here in Mass. I've always been involved in spreading literacy awareness and have recently partnered up with a great charity. It's called Link to Libraries and their mission is to get books in the hands of young kids so there's… Continue

Islamic Community Center Controversy

So, to be completely honest, I am an American-born Muslim. My father is

from Bangladesh, my mother is from Poland. My entire life, I have been

brought up as a Muslim child.

At the same time, I have also developed a political leaning to the left. My religion teaches me that

murder is one of the highest sins one can commit, that God created

everyone as equals, and God is the ultimate judge. I believe that

everyone, no matter their race, religion, sexual preference,… Continue

Nerdfighters who like Harry Potter should read this.

There are lots of nerdfighters who like Harry Potter (duh) and if you are one of them then you've probably heard of a little thing called The Harry Potter Alliance. (Helping Haiti Heal anyone? Or how about this video? Maybe Hank's and John's tweets about how they voted?)

Anyway, if you'd like the HPA to be able to work on more awesome things to decrease worldsuck, I have a small… Continue

DFTBA Records and Advertisement

Hey guys, so this is a blog about my thoughts on DFTBA Records' advertisement to our community. I'd really love to know your opinion on all this. Feel free to leave comments here or on my blogspot.

DFTBA Records is a concept that I've never had to deal with before. It's a

company and we should be wary of all their advertising, cause it's

something you should always be aware of. But because we feel we KNOW
