ASMR Community Update: November 2012

Here we go with the second edition of the ASMR community update.

The beginning of November kicked off with mention of another ASMR documentary. The filming is to happen in the UK.

A new website was started, called http://www.whisperworld.com. Lilium, also known as TheOneLilium, launched her new website at http://theonelilium.dk/.

ASMR Research & Support launched two new competitions. One is a logo competition and the other a research competition that will both help aid the research effort. They will run until the end of the year, so you’ve still got a whole month to enter if you haven’t yet!

A new article on ASMR was published by Devon King over at Charged Magazine. Devon went a step further and took it upon himself to bring back the Wikipedia page on ASMR! It’s up for the time being, and it is open to everyone to edit, but there are some things to consider if you do add anything to it. You have to have reliable, reputable sources, such as published news articles. Blogs, forums and so on won’t be accepted. Now that we have several articles on ASMR on the internet though, this means that the page has a better chance of staying up.

Another article popped up over on The Examiner, where the writer chatted to Haiying Yang, whose videos on YouTube are a favourite among many experiencers of ASMR. An interesting article appeared on the gaming and lifestyle blog Kotaku.com near the end of the month, with the writer exploring ASMR’s potential to enhance one’s gaming abilities.

I put up a new poll on the blog. This one is about which sense you use most when trying to trigger ASMR. So far the results seem to indicate that hearing is the most dominant sense used.

On November 25th, the Boring Conference took place in the UK. Tickets went on sale in October, and eventually sold out. What was so special about this conference, is that there was a lecture on ASMR that took place. There’s been a resurgence in interest for an ASMR conference to take place, actually. Discussions have taken place on Facebook, where people are suggesting a venue in St. Louis, Missouri, USA for an ASMR conference to take place. Initial plans – and I’m talking way back – were to have such a conference on the 9th of April, 2013 to mark the 2nd ever International ASMR Day.

And speaking of Facebook, we reached 4000 members on the ASMR Facebook group!

So that was November. It’s hard to believe that 2012 is nearly over. Stay tuned for next month’s community update!

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.
