I don’t have a blog/vlog and would like to take part, is that possible?
If you do not have a blog/vlog then you can join in the fun by posting your answers in the comments section of my SGS posts each week 🙂
What about posting it on social media/micro-blogging?
When I first created Seriously Geeky Sundays I was open to this as a way for non-bloggers to take part in the prompts. And then I saw it in action.
The problem with SGS being posted on social media or in a micro-blogging format is that it devolves the prompt into something that it’s not. A lot of time was put into creating the questions, and more so was put into answering them each week by the SGS community. Giving one-word answers on social media is not answering a writing prompt.
There are plenty of social media challenges around and I’d appreciate it if people did not try to turn Seriously Geeky Sundays into one. If you want to take part then take part in it fully by giving it the time and energy it deserves.
I really want to join in but I’m busy/can’t post on Sundays 🙁
I hear this quite often and I’ve got a fix for that 🙂 When I created the prompt I wanted to choose a day for cohesion, but always knew that I was never going to be serious about people having to post on that day. So despite the name of the prompt being Seriously Geeky Sundays, you can join in any day of the week. Just post under the alternative title of ‘Seriously Geeky Series’ 🙂
If you are posting on an alternative day please post a new prompt after the Sunday, not before it. For example, if the prompt goes live on Sunday 1st you have until Sunday 7th to post.
I missed a prompt, can I go back and do an old one?
Most definitely yes! You can catch up by posting under the alternate title mentioned above, on Sundays when a prompt doesn’t interest you or on a free day. Find out more by heading to the past prompts page!
I want to suggest a question or theme, can I do that?
Yes, please do 🙂 This is a community event and I want to hear from you! You can give me any feedback (good or bad) by posting a comment on the feedback post here.
I’m not really into the same things as other people…
Seriously Geeky Sundays prompts are always pan-fandom and are aimed at all geeks/nerds. Whether you’re a gamer, a book nerd, a movie buff etc., you should be able to answer each week’s questions. If you find this isn’t the case please let me know 🙂
Can I use your header images for my posts?
You can use the Seriously Geeky Sundays/Seriously Geeky Series banners without credit. If you want to use the ones I create personally for my answer posts (example here) then that’s ok as long as you add a credit link in your post linking back to my blog.
Can I create a new image for Seriously Geeky Sundays?
You are more than welcome to create your own images or logos to use on your own blog for SGS, however, I am not currently looking to add any more official logos.
