I started Hyper Geeky in 2012 as an outlet for my various passions.
And since then, I’ve seen my own horizons expand.
Keep in mind I was just a geek who wanted to build a website about comic books, movies, and whatever else. I didn’t have any names to drop, connections into the business, or anything noteworthy to report on my own end. I just started writing reviews and put more comics on my pull list.
In the past couple of years, I’ve seen my interest in visual arts blossom as I attended comic-cons, engaged in discussions on Twitter with creators, and connected with professionals on social media. I put myself out there, and it seems like I’ve been rewarded by the relationships I’ve been able to build. Whether it’s an avid comic reader messaging me about a particular interest or a comic creator asking me to take a look at their newest project — I feel involved somehow.
And for that, I’m grateful. I started Hyper Geeky to vent, rant, project, and start discussions. It’s been a great outlet for me as a fan to talk about the things I love as well as the things I’m not so fond of. And when I hear a dissenting opinion, it gives me a chance to see things from another perspective. Thanks to the site and my willingness to step forward, I’ve received a lot of support as well as critiques which have made me a better writer.
So when I think about what I want to do in 2015, I’m looking to continue this growth, not only as a geek but as a human being. I’m looking forward to putting more time and effort into making Hyper Geeky a destination for fans of comics and movies. I’d also love to start a section for video games.
Now, I know that January is a dangerous time because resolutions are made months before they’re inevitably broken. Next year when I look back, what will I remember most about 2015? Who knows what the next 12 months bring?
I guess we’ll see.
