It has come to my attention, this not for the first time, that there has been something missing from the What A Nerd Girl Says blog for quite some time.
And what’s missing is news.
Now, here’s the thing: I’ve made it perfectly clear, time and time again, that this is NOT a fansite, not a news site, not anything like that. What A Nerd Girl Says was created as a place where I talk about all the nerdy and fangirl-y stuff in my life to people besides my boyfriend, who probably wants to strangle me every time I squeal over Theo James’ abs…
I’m not a news site. I just can’t keep up with the insane amount of news that is out. Its just impossible! And frankly, I just don’t have the time. I just don’t. I’m an aspiring YA novelist, I go to all these events, I just don’t have the time. I could get others to help me write the blog but I have a control issue so its basically just me.
That being said…I feel like I need to add something to this blog. I’ve recognized that I’ve been able to garner a fair amount of followers in the near two years that I’ve been blogging and so that is where the Weekly Fangirl Round Up comes in.
Every Friday/Saturday, I will post the weekly round-up, with quick bits of fangirl news for the week, so that they are all congregated in one place. I will do my best to link them, that way you can have a chance to read a full article about said news.
I will also post the links to all the blog posts that I’ve posted that week, in one convenient spot.
Sound good? Perfect. Here’s Weekly Round Up Number 1!
