Speak Out With Your Geek Out 2012

Just a quick reminder: the 2012 edition of Speak Out With Your Geek Out will start on September 10th. Five days of writing about and sharing the things you love and geek out about.

Last years was fun, I met a lot of new people, I learned a ton of things and I wrote about roleplaying and insects, among other things. Other people wrote about anything from gaming, history, juggling, knitting to mathematics.

Take a positive stance against baiting nerd rage, geek elitism, negative stereotypes of geeks, and yellow journalism.

Post about how much you love your geeky hobbies or vocation from Monday, September 10th, 2012 to Friday, September 14th on your blog, website, social media account or in a forum somewhere. Then come here and tell us about it. We'll have a kick-off post where you can stand and be counted.

Let's show the world who we really are -- passionate people who love a hobby so much we are willing to share it in a positive way with other people. This week, we will show our best side to remind others of that, too, and will actively avoid negativity and cheer each other on, instead.
