I had a spare bit of time and figured why not? We have to keep the flow of new nerdfighters coming. I made it pretty quickly so if anyone can think of anything to add please do [: Oh! And feel free to fix any of my normal flow of typos too!

How to Be a Nerdfighter

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
You may have heard people talking about Nerdfighers. The first question that arises in many heads is: Are nerdfighters for or against nerds? The answer is that nerdfighters are definitely FOR nerds. To properly become a said nerdfighter follow the simple steps below.


  1. 1: Watch all available Vlogbrother videos (found here: in ORDER. If you skip around you will miss many important little things.
  2. 2:Understand that Nerdfighters are made of awesome. Awesome is what nerds are made of.
  3. 3: Put stuff on your head. It may sound silly, but it is a liberating feeling the first time you put something on your head.
  4. 4: Go to the ning! is an amazing place. Make a page and meet fellow nerdfighters from around the globe. My Pants is a good place to chat too!
  5. 5: When November rolls around make sure to participate in the annual Project for Awesome.


  • You must watch all videos in order your first time around. This process can seem quite daunting, but trust me, if you don't you will miss tidbits of information that makes the nerdfighter.
  • Set a goal to get through at least a page of videos a day. This will allow one to get through all videos in a relatively short amount of time.


  • Videos can be highly addicting. Don't let them consume your life. Allow at least eight hours for sleep.

Things You'll Need

  • A Computer
  • Some time
  • Internet Access
  • Plenty of Awesome

lol...I'll try to set a weekly goal. Now sick leave from work has taken on a whole new meaning.

A weekly goal would be good...I watched them all in a week. I was sick and home from school. Best week ever!

Wow. Profound. I must agree, put things on your head. That's how I got to be where I am today. BTW, being such newbie, do you more senior members think it's ok to set a goal to watch videos per week, instead of per day? I'm afraid of losing my job....

Hahah "Allow at least eight hours for sleep." I didn't do that the first time I went through them all. Twas interesting.
