It’s an interesting question. My initial logic for starting a blog in April 2011 was along the following lines:
Every piece of writing advice ever written says I need a blog, therefore I’ll get a blog! Yes, lemming-like, I know.
If you’re wondering about the name, nerdygnome, would be because I’m a nerd, and gnomes are pretty chill little guys. I’m a pretty chill girl who is on the short side, thus the name fit. At least I didn’t name it after pirates or vikings.
The general idea of this blog was just to post status updates, vent about edits making me hate myself and showing off fancy covers. Also, the bragging. So much the bragging. There really isn’t a plan to the thing at all, I just write about my zombies, sci fi and other important things.
I think my critical failing is that I don’t really have an end-game plan for this blog. That’s part of the reason to join the Buccaneer Blogfest–the guided prompts help me think of what I really could be doing with this blog, and opens my eyes to more possibilities. Some of the prompts are pure genius, like character interviews and light bulb moments.
