Let’s get it out there – I’m a bit of a fangirl. And a geek.
This should make it obvious, that Felicia Day’s book “You’re never weird on the Internet (almost)” – about embrasing your weird – is right up my alley.
Whether you are looking for inspiration about making it on social media, have thoughts about starting out on a business venture your own – or you just plain want an engaging read – this might just be a book for you too.
Being nerdy or a geek has always been a challenge in a normative society, but Felicia’s memoir breaks away from the accepted view of weird as always being a downside and states clearly, that conforming to social norms just for the sake of conforming is not the way to go.
Your “weird” might actually be the one thing that makes you exceptional – and it could be the startingpoint for realising your dreams.
The book is a wellwritten, lighthearted read, with a lot of funny anecdotes about her personal experiences about growing up socially awkward and finding a place for herself online with likeminded people.
To me it’s no wonder that she is a rolemodel in alot of the online communities I participate in (including my own Furballs on twitch – love you guys!) – the message about respect for yourself and others and what each can bring to the table is universal.
So thank you Felicia, for once again bringing me inspiration and helping me to find my voice – after all i wouldn’t be here, visible for all the world to see, if it wasn’t for you.
