STAR WARS LEGENDS SPECIAL! — MOS EISLEY COMICPORT — EPISODE 009

Star Wars Legends — also known as the Expanded Universe — is an amazing collection of stories that came before what we know now as canon. For decades, these stories were powered by incredible writers and Star Wars fans under the watchful eye of Lucasfilm. So, on a week where there are no new Marvel Star Wars releases, it just seems appropriate to talk about the Legends of old and why they’re still so beloved within our fandom. Matt Moore and Jason Hamilton join our host Catrina Dennis, for a very special episode featuring messages from listeners like you!

Confessions of a Blogger

Megan Gotch, founder of The Nerdy Girlie and co-founder of the extremely awesome Female Geek Bloggers group issued a link-up challenge to her fellow bloggers in the form of #BloggerConfessions – so of course I grabbed at that! I’ve honestly been at a loss when it comes to blogging recently (work and prepping for NYCC and Comikaze obligations have really set me back on everything else) so I’m slightly relieved that I have something to flex my fingers with.

This post is probably going to make me look way insecure, but in all honesty, this feels more like I’m confronting the problems I experience as a new blogger and finally figuring out how to solve them. So without further adieu, here we go!

Work has been nothing short of completely insane as of late, and because of that, I’m scrambling to prepare for two cons and a cross-country trip. Granted, I’m not complaining – any career path requires determination and lots of work. But because of these plus the mountain of things I generally do on a daily basis, it’s always hard for me to stick to a blogging schedule. I worry about losing my readers because I don’t update more than once a week, so I’m working on sticking to a more solid schedule, where posts won’t sporadically pop up every few weeks. Promise!

4My roots are in journalism, and I work full-time as an entertainment journalist. I’m used to reporting stories, analyzing episodes or spoilers, and interviewing people who are much, much cooler than I am. That said, I very often catch myself using language that’s more reporter than blogger, and it makes me wonder if my posts aren’t packed with enough actual personality sometimes. Again, a work in progress!

3My friends put up with me posting trailers and gushing over comics on a daily basis, so I am constantly on top of how much I promote, where I promote, and who sees it. I haven’t really defined a target audience to myself just yet, so I’m hoping that as I continue to build this blog, I can single out the types of people that would want to see what I’m sayin’.

2Note: I particularly enjoy this photo because it looks like a high school PSA. Hehehehe.

With the general stress of a busy (but productive and fun!) life, I tend to go out of my way to avoid situations that would involve me feeling anxiety. There are tons of things I’d love to talk about, but often I find that I don’t know how to say it, or I’m worried about getting into big internet fights. INTERNET FIGHTS! I dislike those a ton – a conversation, sure, but actual fights stress the crap out of me. I want to be more bold and write culture pieces on the problems within the geek community, but up until now, I’ve been too cautious of the things I say. Within the next few blog posts, though, that’s going to change. ;)

1This plays pretty heavily into my point on promotions: if I don’t know what my main subject is, how do I find the audience that wants it? It would be easy to make this a gaming blog, or a fashion blog, or a culture blog… but I want to be all of those. I want to be able to broadly cover several aspects of the nerdy lifestyle, but sometimes i worry about the messaging I send out to promote that and how people perceive it. Since I don’t see myself singling out a primary topic anytime soon, I plan on just working harder to make my blog posts strong, fun, and interactive.
