Bale here. I have some sad news from the Nerdmaid Lagoon: Astro is retiring. She has decided she is not cut out for blogging, and that “Nerd Maids” added an unnecessary element of stress to her hobbies. I’m sad, but the last thing I want to do is make her do something she really doesn’t want to do — it would be unpleasant for everyone. And probably not healthy for our friendship, which is more important than the blog.
But don’t worry: I’m not retiring. I love this blog, and have been blown away by the support it’s gotten. So if you’re still in this, I’m still in this. The posts won’t be as frequent, and I probably won’t post about video games (sorry gamers), but I’ll continue to write about Magic, Tolkien and whatever other nerdy things I like! And I’d love suggestions — if you have something you think I’d like, or would make a good post, let me know!
I have lots of ideas for “Nerd Maid
s” — it won’t be the same without Astro, and it may go through as slight identity crisis as I figure out how to run this awesome blog on my own, but I hope you all will stick with me! Look for a post tomorrow about FNM tonight! I’m going to try out a new FNM post format that I’m pretty excited about, so I’d love to hear your feedback.
All for now,
