From the Ashes... Or Something Dramatic Like That


The Nerduary was started seven years ago when some friends and I figured we’d try our hands at this blogging thing. What started as us just posting for each other eventually grew into a moderately popular blog, garnering a pretty sizable amount of unique, returning traffic each day.

But then life got in the way, people stopped posting as much until eventually it was just me. And then, in one of the biggest screw-ups of my Interneting career, I lost the domain Nerduary.com. For some reason I had registered it using an entirely different email account than my other domains, an email I rarely, if ever, checked. So, yeah, I missed out on a lot of “nerduary.com is about to expire” messages.

Long story short, the domain was snaked, someone tried to hold it for ransom and instead of ponying up the unreasonable amount of cash being asked for, I just threw my hands in the air and walked away (I did, however, offer to trade one of my two cats, to no avail).

Fast forward to a few weeks ago when, on a whim, I checked to see if Nerduary.com was open. I missed blogging, I missed talking about all the nerdy shit that makes me happy (and violently angry) and I missed having a platform to interact with other geeks. Lo and behold, Nerduary.com was indeed open. Seems the asshole who snaked it realized after a few years that I wasn’t going to refinance my car to get the name back and in turn let it expire. So for the low, low price of $9, I bought it back and, voila!, I’m back in action.

I don’t know what this new incarnation will end up looking like. I have ideas, sure, but if I reaized anything from from past blogging and published experiences, it’s that the best laid plans pretty much amount to jack shit, things take a life of their own and sometimes it’s best to just jump right in and see where things take you. Because God knows if I keep planning, I’ll never get this thing off the ground. 

So with that said, here ya go. The All-New, All Different Nerduary. In this issue everything changes!

Nothing will ever be… Hell, you know the drill.
