You've probably begun to notice that Nerdette At Large looks...a little different. I had gotten to the point where Blogger just wasn't able to do what I was looking for. Don't take this as a downplay for blogger, because I've been with them since 2006 and they are absolutely amazing, and even better they are free. Which is great, when you are a blogger just starting out and you have no idea what you are doing.
One of the biggest reasons for the change is that it just wasn't looking how I wanted, no matter how many templates I bought, how many tutorials I was reading, and video's I was watching, there was something still off about it. That's when I decided that moving to Squarespace would be the choice for me.
I could still import all of my content, because it's 11 years of work. I definitely didn't want to leave that behind, but I could literally build my site, page by page. I crave that kind of control in other parts of my life, so I'm so happy that I have it in some capacity. Another big thing is, I am planning on opening a sticker shop this summer, and I wanted everything to be in one place. It makes it easier for me to edit, write and create if I only have to visit one site. Squarespace made that possible.
I want to let you guys know, that even though my site is (as my dad put's it, ) Fancy, nothing has really changed. I'll still be writing about the same exact things, (more cemeteries now that the weather is nice) but still the content you've come to love and expect from me. (I hope). Interviews, Comic Books, video Games, Anime, Film and Adventures will still be here for you to find, with a couple of new features I have been thinking about adding for a while. Thank you for sticking with me.
This post is also here to tell you that posts will go back to being Monday Wednesday and Friday, and that I am looking into making more than one youtube video a week! Can't guarantee the days but this summer is definitely going to be an overhaul for my content. I'm ready for bigger and better things, and moving to Squarespace is just the very first step. I hope you continue to join me for this adventure.
Also, can we talk about how it's already the middle of May? Where is 2017 off to in such a hurry? This year has got to slow down, It will be my birthday soon! My mother, Sister and I are heading off to California. You guys know how I feel about California. I've been trying to get there since I turned 18. I told Alex, that he better come with me, or I may not come back... Just pack up all of my belongings and ship em to me. They do that right?
You'll also notice a few new pages. There is an absolutely fresh about page, complete with a youtube video all about moi! The home page, gives you a feel for what Nerdette At Large is about before you delve deeper. You can reach Nerdette Minute straight from the navigation bar, and the portfolio for Checkmate Photo (My Freelance Photography), along with my brand new live streams of gameplay from my BRAND NEW MODDED 3DSXL. I have waited so long for this you guys!
90% of my gaming collection is for my 3DS, so I am so excited to finally be able to share this with you all. I want to do 1 live stream at least a week, so make sure you subscribe to my youtube and my twitch so you don't miss out.
Well, I've taken up enough of your time already. This post is a little longer than what I'm sure you are used to. Feel free to stick around and check out all the new site has to offer. You can subscribe to my email newsletter from the bar at the top of the page, and get brand new posts delivered straight to your email address!
