How Nerdy By Nature Began
I started this blog off on a whim back in 2014 because for years I'd bored my friends with my constant nerd talking, and I figured it was time to give them a break. Also, I went to school for journalism, so I've always had a passion for writing, and I figured why not just mix the two together? I always toyed with the idea of starting a blog, but honestly, I didn't think many people would even be interested in my ramblings. So, it's awesome to see that some of you guys like it as well!
My Advice for New Bloggers
In the simplest terms, write what you know and write what you love. Writing about something that gets you excited will always come across way better than words you threw together just for the heck of it.
Also, don't write for other people. Don't change your views/opinions on something just to get more comments or anything like that. There's no fun in trying to please everyone, that's not what writing's about. Plus, it's your blog! (Just, don't be mean--No one likes a jerk.)
I also agree with Michelle's advice of pacing yourself. Brainstorming ideas for posts and setting them up can get a bit overwhelming at times. I always try to remind myself that I'm doing this because it's fun for me, and I don't need to put so much pressure on myself to create "perfect posts".
