An Update

Unfortunately I still haven’t managed to get around to writing a blog post this week, I promise I’ll get back to it as soon as possible. If you’re missing my posts though I have got quite a few coming out on Nerd Out Word Out.

What is Nerd Out Word Out?

Nerd Out Word Out (or NOWO for short) is a website/podcast set up by two friends, it’s a passion project where they write articles and reviews on all aspects of Nerd Culture but mostly about video games. I occasionally write reviews and animation posts for them but mostly it’s just the two of them.

You’ll notice the latest posts on the site are all from me and that’s because I wrote a 5000+ word article for them on Studio Ghibli, I wrote it as like a guide for those of you who want to get into the Japanese animation studio or for those of you who have only watched the well known films – seeing as it’s 5000+ words it’s being released one a day for 6 days in easier, digestible chunks. So if you’re missing my posts on here head over to nerdoutwordout.com to read 3/6 of the posts in this series with the other 3 being published over the next 3 days.

As budding bloggers it would really mean a lot to all 2 and a half of us at Nerd Out Word Out if you’d take the time to check out the site and to follow us on our social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and I promise I’ll get back on track with my own blog soon.

So I received a message on here a few weeks ago which I’ve only just seen now (I’m sorry!) and honestly it really confused me, although I’ve been using wordpress for almost a year now, it’s still new to me and I’m not 100% sure how to use it to it’s fullest so when I received a message from herrdelta saying that I had been nominated for a Mystery Blogger Award, I had to re-read the message a few times as I couldn’t understand what had happened! I think… I’ve got it now though so thank you so much herrdelta from the blog; splitxscreens, honestly I’m so inexperienced with blogging I haven’t actually looked through who follows my blog or searched for blogs in particular so if it hadn’t been for this, I probably wouldn’t have found their blog, I read their article; Writing with Equality: Bucking Tropes & Trends – Part One & Writing with Equality: Bucking Tropes & Trends – Part Two, I had never noticed this sci-fi trope!! Itf’s unbelievably eye opening so thank you for writing about that topic and for nominating me, I had a random influx of views on my blog yesterday and I really couldn’t figure it out, it must have been you, so thank you again!

and now it’s my turn! (I really hope I’m doing this right…)
