Greetings, fellow Nerdfighters! I'm Saoirse (pronounced seer-sha) and since I have no idea what to put in this post, here is a list of 10 Facts You May Not Know But Will Probably Find Interesting:
1. Those three asterisks (***) used to show a passing of time or just a break in the text of a story is called a dinkus. Please rejoice in this fact.
2. The word "tomato" has its roots in the Aztec word "xitomatl"... which roughly means…Continue

...apparently, the former.
Yo, whaddup. I don't know what that was. Do you know how hard it is to come up with a good greeting? Yeah...
I don't have a lot of friends. That's a compelling way to start, isn't it? I don't get to have deep conversations much. I'm not very good at talking in general. But I have a lot of thoughts. I have a lot of feels. And I don't get to express them to anyone else much. But I like writing. Hence, blog.
If you want to know what I'm about, you…Continue
Here it is: my opener.
I am new to Nerdfighters, but not new to Nerdfighters. What I mean is, I've heard John and Hank toss around that word for years watching their videos, but somehow I never thought to look into it.
I am a nerd. I grew up in a house with my nerd father, my not-so-nerd--but-somewhat-closet-nerd--mother, and my super-mega-as-nerdy-as-me sister. My sister and I were so geeky-nerdy in elementary school, middle school, and our early high school…Continue
I don't often have these amazing productive mornings that I am having at this very moment. So this is fun.
Let's ignore the fact that I haven't slept in 20 hours, and running on love and muscle milk. Ignore it. Just for a moment, please. Thank you. Okay, soooo...…Continue

I've noticed, in my short time on this earth, so many people doing the opposite of what this quote says. But don't we all fall victim to trying to impress people? I use the word victim because in the end we're usually the ones getting…Continue
So, while I've been following the Vlogbrothers and have read a few John Green books, I don't think I necessarily fit into the category of what might be considered a "nerd."
Not that I have any desire to.
The term "nerd" becomes problematic in its own right.
Let's find a definition and go from there. (I hope that Wikipedia will suffice for now.)…Continue
i don't even know
well hey! this is my first blog post where I have really no clue on what the hell I'm doing but let's just go along with this anyway?…Continue

Today I have a special guest post from Jennifer Ridyard, the co-author of a new series of science-fiction books for teenagers. Here is the product description of the book, Conquest. I think it sounds rather good... Over to you, Jennifer!Continue
So I'm fairly new to the nerdfighting scene. I've been a nerdfighter for about a year now. I'm 15 and from Texas. I'm a book nerd and a science geek. I love sci-fi and I recently got in to Doctor Who. I'm still on season (series?) 6 so I'm very behind. I love BBC Sherlock. I'm also obsessed with a podcast produced by Nate DiMeo called " The Memory Palace" and if you like history you should check it out here. So that's about…Continue
Okay, it's my first time posting here, so forgive me for sounding so stupid. I must admit though, becoming a nerdfighter was more awesome than I expected.
So why am I here? Why did it take so freaking long for me to make this account? Well, okay. Honestly, I only found out about the vlogbrothers recently. Yeah, I know, SHAAAME. It took me a bit longer to realize that wow, okay, these guys are definitely worth the subscribe and the stalking that comes with a new fandom. And I found…Continue
Hello Nerdfighteria! Long time, no see!
In the time that I've been absent, school has ended, I've gone to Italy and Paris, and I've started a YouTube channel with four of my friends!
Our username is "OhHeyItsThatGroup" (excuse the lack of apostrophe, YouTube usernames don't allow them) and we (try) to upload videos every day.
It's in the style of 5AG, where one person uploads a video on the same day of the week- for example, my videos are uploaded on…Continue

After much deliberation on making up my own DFTBA initialism, I'm finally a nerdfighter. Yay!Took me gazillion centuries to join, though.

Oh hey there Nerd fighters. Didn't see you there. Haha, just kidding of course I did. Your awesome is so visible it's ultravisible and may even give me a tan.
I have no idea what to do for this first blog post on the ning since my blog posts on Tumblr are actually mostly about stuff my followers already sort of are aware about. And are not actually that awesome.
But I'm sure I'll figure out something!
Like how my Quidditch team is going or…Continue

... in which I decide that this will be a music blog! I will post videos every time I come across something awesome. Recommendations are always welcome!
So today I was alterted through Spirit of Metal that the new Diablo Swing Orchestra (avant-garde metal. In the case of this band, expect metal+jazz+classical inspired singing) album- Pandora's Pinata- was out and kicked ass. I am listening to the single at the moment, which is quite on the happy side of the force, and very colourful…Continue

First NF blog post, so I figured I'd start off with something profound and meaningful, something that gives insight into my innermost psyche.
That's right...a list of 13 things that are cool (at least in my opinion). :D
1. Nutella. Chocolate-hazelnut spread of awesome that has the consistency and nutritional value of cake frosting. This is at the forefront of my mind at present, because I'm going to be making Nutella brownies after lunch.
For some reason, this place scares me. ... actually, for NO reason, this place scares me. I discovered the vlogbrothers for realzies about a month ago (before that, I was just thinking "what the heck are nerdfighters? Are they people who fight nerds? Are they nerds who fight? That sounds awful! Who's this guy in the Tumblr gifs saying incredibly awesome stuff about love and homosexuality and not liking boys who want you to act stupid?") and as I slowly came to realize that I was a…Continue

Writing the first post of a new blog is notoriously difficult, and so, because I've got a chapter of my book to write, and I'm struggling to come up with anything not related to it, I'll just copy-and-paste an entry from my tumblr which I think will serve as a decent introduction to who I am and where I'm at in my life right now.
Until my next post, DFTBA!
In my memory, a 13-year-old…

So I'm Luna and this is one of my many attempts at making a blog. I liked the old one i had, but I wanted to focus on books. So this blog will be about books and books.
I'm doing the 50 book challenge this year. And so far I've read (* goes to goodreads*} 14 books so far. Obviously I probably won't be able to review every single book I read this year. Just because I can't really remember enough of some of the books I read in January to actually make a review for…

Hello Nerdfighters of the World,
My name is Becca Alien... yes... that's not my real name. It's called internet safety and although I highly doubt any of you would hunt me down, I have a fairly uncommon last name and seeing how it is fairly uncommon it is fairly likely that I'm one of the only people in my town with the last name. Therefore I don't want to risk people looking up my last name and coming to my house.
Anywho, as said, I'm Becca. Feel free to…Continue
