So this is the obligatory self-congratulating post at six months of being around (as a website anyway… the Facebook Page did come first). As much as we’ve found, we’re still just scratching the surface of Edmonton’s Nerdity; there’s more to be found every day but we’re finding it for you (and sometimes because of you).
We’ve been interviewed on the CBC and on the Northern Nerd as well as having been written about by The Pulp Press and GigCity.
We’ve shamelessly abused our 15 minutes of fame to guest on board game streams like PlayingBoardGames and have met a lot of new friends along the way.
We do have a lot more in store over the next few months now that we’ve sort of gotten into a groove with our posts. We’ll clean up our links and upgrade the site now that we have sponsors on board like Taps For Effect, The Geeky Realtor and Happy Harbor Comics. We’ve also got some joint projects in the works coming up soon (I hope.. fingers crossed).
A long way off from turning this into a full-time job but we’re still growing (and fast). I didn’t know I liked graphs until I pulled this one from the site earlier… I don’t know who all of you are but I’m glad you’re reading this.
It’s a weird feeling when people you have never met tell you they know who you are or that they heard about something cool because you posted it first.
We won’t let you down Edmonton Nerds!
