Megan over at A Geeky Gal blog created this challenge for fellow geeks to share all about what makes them nerdy. You can see her completed challenge post here.
How did fandoms influence you and your life?
I don’t have a sappy story about how my fandoms brought me through dark times or anything like that. But there is something my nerdy hobbies have given me – a sense of community with others who share my passions.
Being passionate about books, movies, video games, and TV shows makes everyone more interesting.
It gives you something you can talk about with others confidently.
It helps you relate to other people, find common ground, and communicate more effectively.
If you have interesting hobbies and interests, you can find other interesting, like-minded people.
That’s what my fandoms have given me.
I connected with my husband through a shared love of Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.
I’m a member of some Facebook groups that I love because I can find people who could talk for hours about the same fandoms or ships that I can. I may not ever meet those people in person, but there is a great sense of community between us.
My fandoms have given me connection.
Over to you! How have your fandoms influenced you? Tell me in the comments!
