Thank you! You have all been very patient throughout this contributor-adding process. I received over 400 submissions, which is astounding to me. They took some time to go through, but it pleases me that so many kick-ass, creative nerds want to mash words onto this wee blog.
I’ve started sending invite emails to a few people, and will continue to do so over the course of the next couple of weeks. If you don’t receive one, fret not…this is an ongoing process. Also, I have a new web thing that will need contributors as well (I’ll announce that officially soon) so don’t think you’re totally out of the game. Also, because of the sheer number of emails, I was not able to personally respond to everyone with a “Thanks tons!” so please forgive me for that!
As early as tomorrow you’ll start to see posts by new folks, and I hope you’ll be as supercool and kind to them as you have been to me. Finally, those little “by [NAME]” under the post titles will serve a purpose! Engage them! Comment in their threads! We’re all just here to share information and ideas.
Please join me in welcoming the first three Nerdist contributors:
Jessica Barton – Book Nerdist
Andy Neuenschwander – Tech Nerdist
C.A.B. Fredericks – Shark Nerdist
(yes, I thought it would be fun to have one person devoted solely to sharks)
More names to come! And again, PILES OF THANKS!!!
