The Future of Fierce and Nerdy [Sad News]
As of this Friday, Fierce and Nerdy will be going on summer hiatus, and when it comes back on September 1st, it will no longer be a community blog.
Unfortunately, over the past few months, I’ve come to accept that I can’t run FaN and meet deadlines and take on new paid projects and mother three children. So Fierce and Nerdy will become a one-person blog as of Sept. 1st.
We are also working on a new front page design that will allow our readers and authors to easily access every FaN blogumn we’ve ever posted. And many of the FaN contributors have told me that they plan to keep their blogumns going on their own sites, so, of course, we will link to those.
Please know that I didn’t make this decision lightly and that if there was any way I could keep Fierce and Nerdy going as is, I would.
Infinite thanks to our contributors for their amazing and inspiring and just plain wonderful words over these past years. And, special thanks to Ryan Dixon, who has been the patron saint of Fierce and Nerdy from day one. I can’t thank Amy Robinson enough for editing the blogumns kindly and well, for her two years as Blogumns Editor. Also, Joshua Mauldin, thank you, thank you, thank you, for all you’ve done for FaN over the last few months.
And, of course, I want to thank Christian Hibbard (CH), my husband, who quietly did most of the site’s back end work and provided continuous emotional and technical support during this amazing endeavor.
Last but not least, thank YOU for reading. You’ve meant a lot to us and kept us going for almost five years. We’re grateful to you most of all.
Thanks and goodbye for now,
