Change Is AFoot

I know I’ve post in the beginning of the year, that I was going to make a lot of changes to my site, etc. What I didn’t know, I was going to make some big changes in my life as well. 2016 has been one hell of a year so far. One I care not to relive and can only hope things will get better. I’ve been dealing with my father’s death and trying to fit in with everyone again. Get back to a normal…

Change Is AFoot

Fanboys, important things in life

I know I’ve post in the beginning of the year, that I was going to make a lot of changes to my site, etc. What I didn’t know, I was going to make some big changes in my life as well. 2016 has been one hell of a year so far. One I care not to relive and can only hope things will get better. I’ve been dealing with my father’s death and trying to fit in with everyone again. Get back to a normal patter I guess.. Problem is I’m not to sure what normal is anymore. It’s almost like to trying to find yourself again, who you were. I miss my Dad so much, I keep wanting to call him and ask him questions. The other day I saw something and wanted to send him a picture of it, because I know he’ll find it funny. Even talk about movies… I still have his number in my phone and can’t bring myself to delete from my contacts. 2016 seems to be a  year of change and challenges…

With this posted I want to share with you some of the changes I made with nerdylifeofmine.com. I an odd way this site is a part of me and showcases who I am and what mood I’m in. My OCD kicked in and cleaned up the menu layout to this:

 

tumblr_nu762jZH6K1s2fn7xo2_500Home is the main button and will take you back to the main page. Wizard World Press has everything I covered at Wizard World Comic Con and the Star Trek Challenge will take you on an adventure through all the Trek novels I’ve been reading this past year(Good luck.. You’re going to need it.). Podcast is a list of every podcast I’ve been apart of or currently working on, this one as a drop down menu when you hover your mouse over it. Now we have Pandora’s Box.. I’ll make a list below for you:

 

Now Authors as another mini menu that will pop out and give a list of people have taken part in nerdylifeofmine.com. Same thing with Gallery & Mix, there is a mini menu that will pop out when hovering over it. Source Index is a page with all the information that I use for posts and things I share from other bloggers and websites. It’s easier to do it this way and it’s instant credit to everyone. Links is another upfront page I made share links to websites that I rather enjoy and again it also serves as another Source Index kinda.

Cleaned up the side panels a bit, so everything will flow better. Also I have a few new banners and logos that were made this year, by some great friends and family as well as myself. I do have logo I would like to show you guys, but I have yet to pay for it. Money has became rather tight at the moment do to the trip to California for my Father. A lot of things were put on the back burner, some project I think I’ll never get back to again. It’s just to much for me to handle at this point. It’s hard enough to work and go out in public. I found myself having a small panic attack at the store for whatever reason.. I just knew I had to leave.. Sorry going off on a bunny trail here, back to the new logos. At any ate I’m putting a creative change into this site and art around it, so there is the new banner for the website:

NerdyLifeWordpressNerdyLifeFacebookI rather enjoy these new banners and thank you to for make font and other logo designs. Here are some more he made in the past:

Twitter NLOM2 nlomjrIt’s always fun to look back at everything you made. Here are some pictures/logos I made for the site:

But I figured this will be a good start, not only fr the site. But for myself as well, I find it claiming and another way to reinvent oneself.. Hope you all enjoy the new logos/banners!

So I was thinking about doing a year end review of some kind. Then it turned into something else haha! Looking at the numbers and readers I have, I was shocked! I knew there was at least a couple hundred followers and that’s not in counting the returning “visitors”/readers. Not to mention the growth of the website as a whole. For example:

When I started Nerdy Life Of Mine(use to be called Think…

I knew there was at least a couple hundred followers and that’s not in counting the returning “visitors”/readers. Not to mention the growth of the website as a whole. For example:

When I started Nerdy Life Of Mine(use to be called Think Geek) in 2011 on Blogger with only 48 follower/readers. Note it wasn’t a .com then.

Then I moved it to WordPress in 2012 and that’s where I bought http://www.nerdylifeofmine.com. By the year’s end I had over 375 followers/readers. Also had a hard lesson on placement of sources and links. Things you really don’t think about when you first start. But after I found my footing and where I wanted to go with my site, things were rather smooth sailing at that point. Rather funny thing is, I only have 13 post for that year.. Baby steps I guess haha.

Moving ahead into 2013 I went from 375 followers/readers to 9,556! What!!?? Good lord! Kinda kicked things up that Twitter pixyear with 350 post and being more proactive and learning how to write code/build a website. Close to the end of the year I was asked to guest spot on a podcast called Geek Fallout. Also picked up a few different writers at this point, to take part in Nerdy Life Of Mine. A rather big year for N.L.M. Also I was given award by the blogging community for “The Inventive Blogger Award”. A rather nice way to wrap things up.

In 2014 I took a backseat a little this  year and let some of the other writers continue making posts. 2014 I also became a editor, producer and host for podcasts Geek Fallout, Random Nerdness, Geek Fallout: The Comic Book Episodes and Trek1701. Most of my focus was on podcasting and networking and updating the website. I made a few posts here and there. The numbers held at over 9,000 again, only gaining a few hundred followers/readers. It went from 9,556 to 9,776. Not a bad year and holding strong. At the end of 2014 I started looking at the content and made a LOT of changes. Updated the look and feel of the N.L.M. and took a small step back from podcasting. Only doing editing and producing for Geek Fallout and Random Nerdness. In the end I removed some of the writers and cleaned house so to speak, there was about 450 posts written up for the year.

Now this brings up this year!! 2015!! After a lot of work and finding a good balance between podcasting and N.L.M things are running smooth. Still editing Geek Fallout podcast, and also started up a new podcast with some friends called Eclectic Mayhem Podcast. Also started writing more and have more of a scheduled line up of topics every week. Like  comic book trivia, podcasting topics, movie news and personal everyday life stories. Also started up a Book challenge that’s been going on for about half the year so far(still going on). There was a rather big jump in followers/readers this year! Going from 9,776 to 12,006!! Even tho this month isn’t over yet the total post count was 367 and I’m thinking it might 375-80 by the years end. Earlier this month, I started looking around for someone to do a new logo for N.L.M.. I’ve always made my own logos and thought it was time to see what other people can come up with. Right now I have a few samples to show you: ( I haven’t release the artist/designer’s name yet. Mostly do to the fact I don’t know if he would be okay with it. Hasn’t said other wise.)

Things to look forward to!? Well I will be continuing on with my Star Trek Book Challenge till I hit the end(even if it kills me.) I will also be podcasting with Eclectic Mayhem Podcast and Geek Fallout on a more regular time frame. I would also like to do a lot more TableTop topics like I use to. Getting back to my roots so to speak haha, I would also like to get back into my art and show it more on here. This is something I really don’t share with a lot of people and a lot of people don’t know about this :). Also I would like to get my wife to start writing more and share her nerdy cooking recipes and D.I.Y projects.
