I actually missed it by a few days, but that’s okay. I feel it’s a good time to drop some history on this occasion.
Late January of 2012, I had gotten fed up.
I had, the year previous, tried to start up a podcast site and it didn’t work out as I’d hoped.
My tumblr page had gotten weird….I couldn’t find a way to fit my own ideas, articles, and voice into friends’ sites. Still, I wasn’t ready to give up. I wanted a place of “my own” to post my suggestions, reviews, news that interested me, all the weird stuff that makes me the nerd I am.
So I researched. I looked at a lot of other blogs. On February 10th, 2012, with a deep breath of hope, I posted a picture of Spider-Man swinging into action. That felt right. My favorite superhero swinging me into the fold.
Now, I have something at least moderately successful. I’ve got a few amazing and intelligent friends who have contributed to making this little space on the internet something fun and maybe a little different than all the other blogs out there. We may have hit a bit of an obstacle course over the past 3 months, but now we’re back. We’re still here. We’ve learned more and I think the next year of Nerd-Base is going to be even better. Even the podcast is getting better (don’t worry, that’ll be back next week!!!).
So, for all of you that have supported me, us, over the past year…those of you that I may not know that have kept coming back to the site, those of you that have only been here once or twice that probably won’t see this, Thank You.
From the bottom of my cold, black, shriveled little heart….thank you.
