It’s funny to see the evolution of this site and myself. I started this site/blog well over 10 years ago. The original idea was to share things that worked for me or didn’t work as a single parent. As well as a escape for my mental health, plus a few nerdy things here and there.
At one point it was just centered around the struggles of custody battles/mental health. Then at some point, not to sure when it happened. But I got heavy into the Comic Cons and all Pop Culture. Which lead into a number of different podcasts and even host a few of them myself. Doing interviews and press coverage for local Comic Cons or events that happen within’ Oregon. While this is still going on, the drive isn’t there to cover these events as it once was. It’s not that it’s no longer fun or anything…. Just doesn’t feel as important as it once did. I think the turning point was when Covid-19 hit and everything shutdown.
Around this time my blog took a nose dive as well. More focused on what I call micro-blogging… It’s Twitter and Instagram basically…. But that has now changed this year as well. First my Instagram was hacked and I had to nuke the whole account and start from the ground up. Now Twitter.. I’ve always had a love & hate relationship with Twitter. Now in recent months I find myself starting to leave the platform. While I don’t think I’ll delete my account, I think I’ll leave it up just set on autopilot to share my posts from my site. But it’s become way to toxic and drama filled, that is not where my life is going now.
That bring me to where we are now. I’ve started to get back in to photography and video, as well as the outdoors. Ever since Covid-19 happened, I have found myself traveling more and more in to the woods/mountains. Finding new places I never knew where there or taking in the beauty of the outdoors. There is something about capturing a moment in time that hit me to the core and start getting the artiest inside of me (that I thought was once dead) back to life. Plus the stress relief of being out in the woods, there is nothing like it. I have to say being out there has helped me process so many things mental.
So with this new changes, I’ve also returned to my old YouTube account to make videos of our adventures. I am also keeping my Instagram as my main access on social media platform. But I am definitely dropping everything else and using my site more often (nerdylifeofmine.com). I just don’t know if I should change the .com name tho?
But at any rate, here is my first attempt at making a actual YouTube video hahaha.
So earlier this year we went to Silver Falls State Park. If you haven’t been out there yet, please check it out. First part of the trail there is a number of people. But as you work your way down, they become less and less.
