Welcome to My Geek Obsession, further known as MGO. This site is all about discussing what we’re obsessed over, and we hope to share that with you. Feel free to peruse the site, check out the latest posts, and stay tuned into our podcast. If you think you know something we’d geek out over, feel free to contact us. We LOVE trying out new things, and if they’re your favorite things, even better. 😀
From the Senior Editor — Let me introduce myself. My name is Tara, online name Myssiing. When I was a kid, being a geek wasn’t the popular thing to be. In fact, it was the exact opposite. So, I tried my best to escape my geekdom and be something, anything, else. I tried to be popular, but that was straight out. I never seemed to fit into any one particular group. It wasn’t until late in highschool that I finally embraced that I was, in fact, a geek through and through.
That’s when things took off for me. As an adult, it’s suddenly somehow popular and cool to be a geek. At first I was offended by this, as if people had intruded into my living room and started playing with all my stuff. But, I have learned to embrace it. And it has embraced me. I have met a ton of really cool people who do really cool things. I’ve been able to attend 3 E3 conventions. I’ve written articles for different publications. I co-host a tech based radio show. And I feel like I’m not done yet.
With this site I hope two things will happen. 1) I get an outlet to express all the different TYPES of geeky things I’m into, not just gaming and/or tech. 2) OTHER people get the chance to share in geekdom with others. I know it’s sparse right now, but I’m hoping the site grows exponentially, and most of all, that you enjoy it. Thank you.
