365 Challenge : Erasure

Picking one single event in my life to erase is hard. If you had the choice there would be a lot of times you’d like to make disappear.

The thing is it isn’t a good idea to erase anything from your past.

I am only the person I am today because of everything that went before. My history made me. I’m not sure I’d give any moment up even if it meant not having to live through something bad. If I got rid of one of the times I got seriously ill then I’d have to probably live it at some point. A bad memory? Well what did I learn from it?

There isn’t really any point living a life if there is anything you’d erase from it. Humiliation, failure and any other negative experiences in your life are there for you to learn from. I’d hate to lose any of it really.

Would anyone really want to erase something that happened to them?

365 Challenge : All about you

The title of the blog was a joint decision.

How many times have we told the story of how we made this place up? I’m sure you are sick to the back teeth of hearing about it.

Basically Anna had run a Bruno Senna website, she’d given that up and started her own. She used to review everything on there from TV shows to wrestling, events she was going too and anime. Lots and lots of anime. She caught up from the beginning of Fairy Tail and wrote about it on there.

At the same time a load of us who had been part of the site she’d done before were finding it hard to keep in touch so we all together made our forum up. We didn’t have a clue what to call it and didn’t really care whether anyone actually ever joined as it really was just so we could have a easier place to talk. Anna’s personal blog at the time was called “Dark mind of a Geek” because at the time she was very depressed and she thought it was emo enough to get the point that she hated the world. So we were thinking about a interesting name and it just kind of popped out of nowhere “Geek Mind”.

Of course when we came to make this blog we did a few searches and found out that there was already plenty of websites with a variation of Geek Mind in them.

How “Believe in Geek” came about I can’t really remember but it was just us throwing ideas at the wall, googling them to see how many results came up with similar titles and then finding the one we thought was best. I think it might have been Rick that came up with it.

Even though Anna has been here from the beginning the decision to start the blog and her coming on board took months, we didn’t want to start without her so BelieveinGeek.wordpress.com was a lonely desolate place. Then we finally got her to join in and she basically abandoned her own blog and made this one her new home.

What does it mean to us?

It means the world.

We get to talk about the things we love and things we don’t love and keep up to date with each other. We’ve met some lovely people from different sites and from around the web. We had so much fun doing Doctor Who stuff for the anniversary year and even though there were plenty of projects we started and never finished it was just fun thinking them up! Its been such a positive experience for Anna and so nice to see everyone take it to heart.

We’d love for more people to join in and chat with us, from our comments you can tell that we’re all very chatty people! We love to talk, even if it gets heated its always in good nature and we just love being in the middle of a discussion. Even without you guys who view these posts and like them (or sharing them on other social media outlets) interacting with us we still get to see what each other are up to and hear some of the strangeness that lurks inside our heads. Specially Pete’s.

We’ve tackled one thing that we really wanted to do this year which was to be active every single day, its very rare for this blog to be the only blog up on any given day so its nice to see we’ve put our hearts into it. I feel like people who follow us can really start to believe in us now and that can only mean the beginning (even if its taken a few years!) of our blog rocketing off!
