my new side gig

Have I mentioned how much I love it when ya'll leave comments? I do. Like a lot. Sometimes I get the impression that I am shooting this blog out into the ether, and because I am, well..me, I just assume no one is reading it [Tangent: If my stats are high on a given day, I assume that something notable in the news has happened with another "girl in wheelchair" and people are just getting lost or that once again, some Russian Porn site has somehow hacked me. It happens.]. That is unless someone tells me they read it.  In which case, I immediately get that weird mix of excitement and embarrassment. [Tangent: Especially if it is someone I respect or who holds me in some kind of professional esteem, in which case I immediately get that internal microfiche going and wonder how many times I cussed or talked about something trivial to most, like the family dynamics on Full House. ] Well, these very comments are the way I found my newest project.

Yesterday, on my facebook page I broke the news that starting next week, I will be posting several times a month at my new home away from home, Nerds and Nomsense. I found out about this corner of the internet from one of N&N's bloggers who commented on several of my posts. [Tangent: Be forewarned that if you comment more than once, I will totally reverse stalk you and if you have a blog- I will check it out. Trust that this has led me to some awesome and horrifying places! Ask me about it later.] I started following them in social media and soon learned that they were looking for fresh blood, so I threw my hat into the ring and they pulled me in. [Tangent: Read my hastily fashioned bio here! Yeah, it is really hard to write a bio. I think my own personal hell would be to write my own bio over and over and over and over again. ]
 Nerds and Nomsense is a newer blog, but it seems like a fun forum for food and frivolity and fans of DIY. [Tangent: Yeah...I like alliteration. What of it?] A core group of bloggers from all over these 50 nifty United States contribute recipes and entertainment/pop culture pieces. I warned them that I don't really cook and I have only ever read one Harry Potter book  [Tangent: And that was for a paper. Also, that I had never seen Dr. Who, and kinda have no plans to.] so I am not sure I was what they were looking for. However, I do have a lot of opinions and misplaced enthusiasm.

It seems like it is gonna be fun, and since it's only a few blogs a month, it's definitely manageable. Every month there is one thematic week, and God knows I LOVE a theme. And c'mon the first theme is the OLYMPICS!!! [Tangent: The one time every couple years that you will see ME lose my shit over something sports related. I live for it.] I shall keep you all updated.
