Lo, There Shall be... An Ending!

Just over 10 years ago, a group of friends and I thought it would be fun to start a geek blog.

So we did. And it was fun.

While it was never a contender for most popular geek blog on the internet, it did maintain a pretty nice level of popularity. It wasn’t just people we knew personally who read, but people from all over the world. It was cool.

However, at its heart, The Nerduary was a place for me and some of my closest friends to come together to talk about the things that really excited us – comics books, Star Wars, Star Trek, video games, obscure cartoons from the 80s and 90s and a whole litany of other really geeky things. It was a way for us to keep the conversations going online that we used to have in person late into the night back in college.

Sure, it was always nice to look at the analytics and see that we weren’t just talking to each other, but what was more important was that we were having fun together.

But over the years, people got busy. Life happened. One by one, the list of contributors dwindled to just one. I carried the torch for a long, long time and had fun doing it. I continued to meet amazing new people, readership was always growing, and at one point my work here got noticed by some mainstream outlets.

Then, one day, without even noticing, life finally managed to pull me away from The Nerduary, too.

It's been almost two years since The Nerduary was last updated, so I think it's time to close the door and turn out the lights. It was a fantastically fun site, and it afforded me so many opportunities. The Nerduary will always hold a very special place in my heart. But it's time to say goodbye now. 

Thank you everyone who ever stopped by to read something written here.

Thank you everyone who made the decision to share something from this site with the rest of the world.

Thank you Joe Goble, who went out of his way to make sure everything on the back-end was on the up-and-up and who caught all the grammatical gaffes.

Thank you to everyone who followed and supported The Nerduary over the last decade and made it the amazing place that it was.

And thank you Jake Hallman, Derek Stoddard, Logan Thomas, Joe Ben Deal and Turner Oppy. You were all great co-bloggers...

You are all great friends.
