After all of the contemplations, self-doubting, and going back and forth about doing this, my first post wound up being something I super wrote on a whim. I liked it more than I liked any other drafts for this blog that I did, went to read other anime/nerd blogs and thought their quality was better, went through about a thousand cycles of self-doubt over the past 24 hours, but in the end I stuck with it.
That long opening paragraph meant to say…my new blog is here!!! I can’t be more excited, even with all of those doubts whirling in my head. I’ve wanted to do a blog like this for a year, if not more, and after participating in the nerd/anime blog community for about a month or so now, seeing how nice everyone is and reading some amazing posts, decided to take the plunge! I’m going to be covering more than just anime on my blog: I also intend to do character studies, plot studies of video games, cartoons, movies, just geek out over stuff, anything nerdy that catches my fancy I want to talk about over there. I’ll also be talking about being a blind/visually impaired nerd, and how that effects enjoyment of the media. So, a nerd version of this blog, more or less 😄
I wanted to come up with a better name for the blog, but honestly whenever I thought of anything else nothing really stuck out to me. If you have any other ideas, or like the name as is, let me know! And let me know how you like the first post either over here or over there. I’m so excited in that nerve wracking way right now, I can’t wait to start this new blogging adventure!
If you want actual information on The Blind Nerd go over to either the welcome post, or about page. All of the information pertaining to the blog and what I’m going to be writing about is over there.
I just find it so amusing that after all of my agonizing and second guessing about doing this, I wind up just doing it after being really moved by watching Yuri On Ice. I guess that’s just life sometimes. I’m not sure what my posting schedule is going to be over there, I think for now I’m going to do one post a week, because those posts take a lot more effort and energy to write out than these ones.
I’ll be back with a post on Tuesday, as usual! I just got so excited about doing this over the weekend, I had to post about it noooow. Once again, here’s a link to The Blind Nerd if you want to check it out!
