A couple of months ago I realized something. What if there was a place where people from all walks of life could come and share what they wanted – be it about food, travel, gadgets, life and other cool experiences? Something that could be a catchall yet not seem so ridiculous or informatively-overwhelming that YOU (our lovely readers) might actually think that it’s just as awesome as we do. A place where we can express our views on things going on in the world around us. A place where we can share awesome local gems or secret travel locations, advice about life, or how to properly cut an onion – without crying.
The only problem was, I couldn’t do it by myself. So that idea sat around, slowly building and poking at me until a few weeks ago when I couldn’t take it any longer and had to do something about it. There was one issue. I, like some of you, have taken a crack at the whole “Let’s be a blogger” idea in the past – which went great for the first month or two, then life got in the way and the next time I checked in on the (now barren) blog is when my provider sent me an email asking “Are you still there?” (in that creepy robotic voice from Portal). It takes a team, a community of awesome, all-inclusive individuals to pull this off… but where to start? Then the little voice in my head (who sounds exactly like Stephen Fry, don’t ask me why. It just does.) piped up and said “Look around you!”

Several chats across Facebook, a few text messages, some lovely G+ Hangouts, and one shared Google Drive later (among some other tedious ‘managerial’ cat wranglings, a logo design, website design, logo re-design, etc…) and BAM. A group of 12 plus bloggers, foodies, techies, and travelers from all over and all with a common goal, to spread the awesomeness that is life.
Our community of authors herald from all over. We’ve all come from different backgrounds, have grown up in different cultures, and work different professions which gives us a slight edge over your typical bloggity-blog. We are a melting pot of knowledge and randomness, and it’s pretty darn awesome.
Welcome to Nerds and Nomsense!
Since we have recently launched Nerds and Nomsense in August 2013, we are currently not looking for additional authors for at least a couple of months. With that being said, if you have an idea for a post that you’d like to see covered or a recipe that you’d like to learn please let us know by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like us to keep you in mind once we begin to accept new guest authors, we’d love to hear from you. In your email please include “Guest Author Inquiry” in your subject line.
We’ve answered more questions on our QUESTIONS? page, feel free to take a gander.
Anywho, I hope you enjoy what you find here.
