Weekly Geeks: 2009-02

weeklygeeks I am late to this one – please forgive me, but I ended up sick with the flu this week and spent three days flat on my back. My husband said he knew I was really sick when I did not pick up a book for that entire time! Anyway, I’m back and just had to participate in this week’s event. Joanne of The Book Zombie had these questions:

For those who have been with the group, either from the start or joined within recent months, what does being a member mean to you? What do you enjoy about the group? What are some of your more memorable Weekly Geeks that we might could do again? What could be improved as we continue the legacy that Dewey gave us?

For those just joining us, why did you sign up for Weekly Geeks? What would you like to see here?

I joined Weekly Geeks the first week it started – mostly because by then I had discovered the joy of Dewey’s community efforts and wanted to meet other book bloggers in a fun and different way.  My participation was a bit spotty at times – sometimes life just got in the way. My favorite themes were Storytelling and Social Awareness … I loved the creativity these inspired and the posts were so much fun to read.

Dewey’s vision was a weekly event that united the community – and that was truly a brilliant vision. It worked. I came back again and again because I enjoyed the connections I was making with other bloggers … and I was learning more about them through these fun events. When Dewey passed away and it was decided to keep Weekly Geeks going, I knew I would want to be part of that sense of community.

I hope to see things stay fresh and original…I hope that we get lots and lots and lots of ideas emailed to us and that this event will continue to grow and evolve.

    I joined Weekly Geeks and Sunday Salon at around the same time, but my participation has been lax for some time now. I’m hoping to get back in the swing of things, too. :]
