It’s the Second Anniversary of The Unnamed Feeling!

On Facebook a while back, Ryan said he couldn’t believe how far the ASMR group had come. And Envelope replied, saying that it would indeed be two years of existence this month for the group, having been formed in February 2010. Not only that, but February also marks the second anniversary of this blog.

I’m pretty sure I’ve been through it before in various places, but here goes again: the year was 2009, and it was about May when I used Google to search for a term similar to what many others have – something like “tingling head sensation”. I ended up at some forum thread over at Steadyhealth, which had been started as far back as a year or two prior. Terms such as AIHO and AIE were made here. There were also two main people I became slightly acquainted with: Ryan and Envelope, funnily enough – especially the latter individual.

I thought to myself at this point: I should really start a blog or a website about this sometime – and then promptly left it alone for the rest of that year.

It was only in early 2010 when I revisited that thread that I saw there were plans to start up a Facebook group, that I really summoned the energy to go ahead and start this blog. Then after posting here for a few months, and having had comments left on my blog by Envelope and being invited to join her Facebook group, in June 2010 I was contacted again by email and invited to come aboard the ASMR Research team along with, at the the time, Ryan, Domagoj, Adam, Michela, Chaz, and Envelope.

While the team has changed over the last while, the blog is still here, and I still post weekly updates on what’s going on within the community and around it, as well as my own theories, tingle triggers, observations, directories, and of course polls for you to vote on!

It’s been a pleasure so far to have done all I have for the community, helping maintain most if not all of the network sites in some capacity, and getting things going behind the scenes – often to the detriment of some of my other projects outside of ASMR, which I’ve more often that not had to put on the backburner. I’m really hoping that this year we can really make some progress as far as funding and research goes for this project. It needs to happen, and with enough effort and persistence, we should be able to make it happen.

As always, thanks go to the community for participating on all the social networking presences we have like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Reddit, and for coming over here every now and again to read what I have to say.

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
