My Very 1st Blog Post…..A Little About Me – The Nerding Curve

I never thought I would be sitting at my “work desk” in our family room writing my first of seemingly many blog posts.  But here I am.  Hello World!  This is my blog.  Read me, read me, read me.  Ok, enough of that.

Where to begin?  I wrote this whole “About Me” section full of my Marketing credentials where I name-dropped all of these big companies that I had worked with and it came out super boring and pretentious.  It even bored me, and I lived it.

That stuffiness is just not me, so I crumbled up that draft (so to speak) and just started writing from the heart.  There are a few things about me worth knowing as you decide if you want to continue reading my blog or not and I like to think of them as FUN FACTS instead of credentials or a resume.

The Nerding Curve is my first public debut at blogging. Although, I have been writing down my thoughts, memories, emotions, etc. etc. since I could put crayons to paper.  However,  the main reason that this blog came to be right now is because I realized that my nerdy, gamer, geek, insert another adjective here, husband was turning me into a nerdy gamer geek.  And then I realized, I was clearly ALWAYS a nerd, because let’s face it, nobody TURNS that quickly and maybe he just made my inner nerd comfortable enough to show itself.  And the only thing nerdier than being a self-confessed nerd is sharing all aspects of that with the world and poof, this blog was born!

 

So, here goes:  5 Fun Facts About Laura! 

1.)  I’m a Newlywed! (YAY!) And married to a great guy.  Truly my better half, the love of my life, and my best friend.  Really, my life wouldn’t be the same without him.

2.)  We have a 3 legged, 5 pound, white and tan Chihuahua. He is our fur baby and has a typical Chi personality (read: insane.)  I will probably write about him from time to time or at least post pictures because he’s just so adorable!!  For a counter perspective, my husband has nick-named him a “tiny terror.”  Draw your own conclusions.

3.)  I LOOOOVVVVEEEE to read.  As a kid, you could frequently find my head buried in a book and to this day, I always have a stack of at least 3-4 books on my nightstand that I am reading concurrently.  Since my husband shares my insane love of books, we just had to make one of the rooms in our home a dedicated library.  Our library has nothing in it except shelves of books and comfy chairs.  Doesn’t get much better than that……  🙂

 

4.)  My husband and I started an online business together 2 months before our wedding (read: also insane) and now have 2 eCommerce stores up and running.  Con Couture just celebrated a 1st Business Birthday!  Our plan is to keep adding to it so that I never have to dress myself and clock into a corporate cubicle every again.

We sell fun things.  Take a little looksy:

5.)  I am interested in trying to live a Vegetarian and (ultimately Vegan) lifestyle.  If you keep reading, I will amuse you with tales of how this goes down in our house!  🙂

 

Well that’s it.  Those are my 5 starter fun facts and it’s only going to get fun-ner (this being a word is debatable, but it should sooo be a word already.)  You have to stick around to learn the rest.

With this blog, I hope to share my insight on a wide range of topics:  being a newlywed/wife, obviously everything nerd and nerd related, recipes, a vegetarian (aspiring vegan) lifestyle, TV, life, our business Con Couture, and most importantly:  The Nerding Curve!

So welcome, stay awhile and nerd out with me.

Nerdily, Laura
