Weekly Round-Up :: 3.16.12
Hey guys! We’re adding a new reoccurring feature to the Nerdy Show page – the Weekly Round-Up. We post a lot of content and some of it might get lost in the aether. We can’t have that, can we? So look forward to these every week to compile all the fun we’ve had, and maybe some fun you missed.
Oh hey there. I’m Sophia, one of the Nerdy Show interns. What do interns do at Nerdy Show? Stalk the page, basically. So why not make it public? Welcome to the Weekly Round-Up where I give you a recap on all the Nerdy Show riff-raff. However, to start this thing off with a bang, this first recap is going to be a huge one: Everything new that has happened as of late February up to the present. But after this one… It will be weekly, I promise. So saddle up for a, MEGA ROUND-UP.
