One year ago I launched this little venture called Seriously Geeky Sundays and wasn’t sure whether it would actually go very far. I thought maybe a few months, six months if I was lucky and then I would end up giving up due to lack of interest. Instead, a year has passed and people are still interested and still joining me each week to answer the questions I create. It has been a wonderful feeling to contribute to our community and I hope to grow SGS even more in the next year.
You may notice that I’ve gone from week 52 last week to week 1 this week. I have dyscalculia and had a difficult enough time keeping count of the weeks over the year, and the thought of trying to keep count of them for longer sounded like a ridiculous amount of effort for no reason. If anyone wishes to keep counting upwards then please do, there’s really no reason to even count the weeks other than my own organisation for files. I just wanted to mention it in case anyone got confused.

Happy First Birthday SGS!
My answers for week #1
What was your favourite theme?
I think it’s between Kings and Queens and Here there be monsters because those two both capture my favourites genres and the categories where most of my favourite characters fall. I enjoyed talking about those interests and sharing my answers with everyone.
What theme did you like the least?
I wrote the questions so there’s not any that I didn’t enjoy at least a little bit, but the thing with writing questions for a prompt is that they seem really great when you write them and you also need to keep in mind that you’re writing them for a wider audience. So sometimes the questions don’t always appeal to me personally or when I come to write an answer I suddenly realise, oh crap, I don’t actually know what to put for this one! Technology was probably my weakest one. The answers looked great in theory and then when I came to actually answer them my mind did a complete and utter blank on me.
What question made you think the most?
It’s definitely been all the Around the World in 8 Sundays topics, especially for the continents outside of Hollywood’s influence such as Africa, and Asia, and naturally Representation (but that was by design).
Which theme reminded you of something you’d forgotten?
Week 24 Storytime reminded me of some stories from my childhood and Animation also had me remembering things I used to love and had almost forgotten. It was great fun bringing them back to the surface of my memory and getting a chance to talk about them again!
What do you enjoy most about Seriously Geeky Sundays?
Being part of a fun and friendly community that only takes one thing seriously; geeking out. We don’t do cliques, there are no elitism or wrong answers. Just loving what you love and sharing it with others in a safe environment.
