This Is Who I Am is a personal blog where I share my life. Posts include a range of subjects from music to books to cooking to dealing with physical and mental illness.
I started blogging in 2004 on livejournal and quickly fell in love with the hobby. I used to run a collective housed at aemslash.co.uk where I learned coding, blogged, posted fanfiction, joined and ran fanlistings but that fell to they wayside about… ooh 10 years ago. I continued blogging at livejournal and at dreamwidth, then ended up on WordPress. I found I missed having my own website address and I registered aslasherandageek.co.uk on 27th December 2015.
The name comes from the two main words I use to describe myself
slasher as in I love to read and write slash fanfiction. I’ve been part of various fandoms over the years but I’m currently involved in Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis where my favourite pairings include Jack O’Neill/Daniel Jackson, Cameron Mitchel/Daniel Jackson, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay and Cameron Mitchell/John Sheppard.
geek because, well, I am. I love science-fiction, history, human biology and physiology, accounting, mythology, freemasons, the knights templar, the holy grail, the history of science and medicine, to name but a few
