First posts are always oddly difficult for me.
Something about beginning something from scratch like this always gives me more pause than it should.
So, some of you might be curious about why I call this PolyNerdic.
I came across the name in a number of ways.
First and foremost is the obvious fact that at 31 years of age I am quite comfortable with my nerdy nature. I am long past the age where I can waste energy caring what people think and have come to embrace who I am.
I also happen to be a nerd cut from multiple cloths.
I am a comic book nerd, a video game nerd, a sci-fi nerd, a fantasy nerd, a food-nerd (think foodie without the pretension) and even a sports-nerd (you’re kidding yourself if you for one moment thing obsessing about who has the most touchdowns or what some prospect’s 40 yard dash time is is in any way less nerdy than the guys who can tell you the DPS of a legendary loot item or the effective range of a TIE fighter is).
One could say as far as nerdy stuff goes I try to be a renaissance man.
And thus my blog was titled.
Poly meaning many, Nerd meaning…well nerd and the suffix “ic” meaning “having the character or form of”.
So as I am a nerd of many interests I could think of no better name.
Enough with the introductions though. I have some old writings I want to upload this morning. I hope you enjoy them and everything that follows.
I sincerely hope to see you around.
