I never really wanted to write this post, but after thinking it over for months I’ve finally decided to go ahead and do it. From this day forth the Nerdlog will no longer focus on various geek culture related subjects. Instead it will only follow the work that we put into our projects. You’ll no longer find the occasional game review, featured write ups like the Harry Potter favorite moments article, movie news, or music posts. What you can expect to see are posts about the shorts, hopefully my weekly sketches, our podcasts and of course anything pertaining to our work. It’s going to become a strictly Shamoozal related blog.
The truth is, the Nerdlog hasn’t grown in the last few years. While some of our features have gone onto become great evergreen posts for us (who would have thought my post about the movie The Wizard would still be doing well, along with a handful of others), but the simple fact is that this blog has remained fairly stagnant. Lately I’ve been questioning exactly what this website is supposed to be about. I mean, what is it supposed to be? I always say it’s about our shorts, but the shorts are buried here. We lack focus, and we also lack the time to really make a blog worth caring about, something which would require multiple updates per day. Currently we’re lucky to have a week with four new posts let alone multiple posts per day.
There isn’t much more for me to say other than it was a fun ride. I’m sorry that I slowly let the Nerdlog die a bit of a painful death towards the end. I really owe John a lot of thanks for being the one that was always timely with his movie posts. Sometimes he single handedly kept the cobwebs off of this place. So a big thank you to you John.
With that said, if you’re a regular blog reader, our staff and community are generally posting lots of stuff in our forums. Do come over and say “hi” at some point. Thanks for reading.
