10 of a Kind: Features on Random Acts of Geekery That Ended!

Yes, it's a list of 10 features I tried out on Random Acts of Geekery that, for one reason or another, ended!

1. The Way of the Geek: Most of you should remember this, it was a series I did where I interviewed my fellow geek bloggers and asked about their personal history and how their blogs started. Ended because I ran out of subjects.

2. Certifiably Geek Blogs: My attempt to start a blog award just for geek blogs. It seemed to start off okay, but then we hit a stage where all the blogs that had been awarded the prize never passed it on to someone else!

3. Jon's Comic Reviews: Yes, at one point early in the blog, I was providing brief reviews of the new comics I bought! Discontinued because I stopped enjoying any current comics and stopped buying new comics altogether.

4. Biography: Another one that started and ended the first year of this blog, I was basically writing my biography here! The last time I wrote any of it, I was still on my childhood!

5. Jon's Saturday Morning TV Party: This ran one time and one time only -- I posted way to many YouTube videos in one post that was supposed to remind you about Saturday mornings when you were a child. Ended because it was too many videos in a single page!

6. TV Talk: For a while, I was starting to post thoughts about different shows I was currently watching! Not sure why I ended that, to be honest!

7. The Incredible Internet Guide to Comic Books: This was a book I bought cheap at Half Price Books that promised to be the ultimate guide to comic book sites on the internet -- most of which were already gone by the time I got the book! So I was really just mocking it.

8. TV Comic Cover of the Day/Theme Covers: Yeah, for a while I was posting a comic cover of the day that went with a theme, such as TV Comic Covers. Not sure why I stopped!

9. Sunday Funnies: This was a series of "how to draw" posts scanned from an old book I found!

10. Random Videos of Geekery: Some would argue that I've just replaced this with the Cliffhanger! feature... they would be wrong, as I also posted movie trailers and cartoons and such here too!
