Hey hey everyone! You may have already noticed, but I’m in the process of updating some things here on Blerdy Otome. I made a few changes over the weekend, but this is going to be a much bigger undertaking than I anticipated, so I’ll be taking a blogging break until May 1st 2022. I’ll be back, promise, but I want to make sure everything is in tip top shape!
Some of the changes I’ve already made include:
Top menu updates (the addition of a Games tab and combining all reviews into one Review tab)
New homepage slider and recent posts feature section.
A new Games page that links to specific game details pages
Please let me know if anything on any of these pages needs to be updated by Twitter DM or email at email@example.com
A new tab in the top menu that links to my Twitch channel.
It’s crazy to think that 2021 is almost over, it kind of feels like this year just started and now 2022 is right around the corner. This year opened up so many amazing opportunities that I never dreamed would be possible when I started this site back in 2015!
So before 2021 kicks the bucket, lets take a look back at 2021 here on Blerdy Otome!
Hey Hey Blerdy Tribe! These last few months have been kind of crazy on my end, but in a good way! I’ve been getting my Twitch channel off the ground and I recently started a Discord server to connect with folks away from this site and Twitch–which means content here on Blerdy Otome has been kinda sporadic. I’m slowly finding a good rhythm for everything so I should be back on track next week-ish.
But, today I wanted to share some exciting news with you all! If you follow my socials you probably already know, but around the end of August I found out I was nominated for one of the*GameHERs Awards.
So, after dragging my feet about it, I broke down and created a discord channel for my blog and for Twitch! I figured it would be a fun idea to connect with folks outside of streams and the blog. Nothing fancy, just a chill space for chill vibes and fun chats! It’s kind of an extension of my Twitch channel, since we tend to have a lot of good discussions that get cut off because I refuse to do a 10 hour stream.
Hey there Blerdy Tribe! At the start of the year I said I wanted to dip my toes into the world of streaming on Twitch, but my old laptop wasn’t really up to snuff, so I had to put a pin in that until I got my new rig. But, when I got the new laptop I kept waffling back and forth on starting, because let’s face it I get super nervous speaking in front of people and two I’m a Virgo so I tend to want things to be perfect from the start… and let’s face it when are things perfect the first time around?
So when the lovely folks at Lunaris Games gave me an advanced copy of the first 2 chapters oftheir supernatural mystery visual novel When the Night Comes ReVamp I figured this was the perfect opportunity to take the plunge! So I did on a Thursday at a weird time with no warning, so I couldn’t back out of it.
I had loads of fun and everyone was super nice and we even had some folks from Lunaris Games in the chat to give some behind the scenes sneak peaks! Of course there were some technical difficulties (like me forgetting to save the broadcast on Twitch), but it was a learning experience and I had a lot of fun! Thankfully I recorded the whole thing and was able to upload it to YouTube… so if you missed out on the stream you can check it out!
I hope to do more streams in the future (I just have to work out schedules and things), but if you wanna get a notification when I do go live, be sure to subscribe to my twitch channel: www.twitch.tv/blerdyotomegames! Also if you also have a Twitch account drop your deets in the comments so I can give you a follow!
Thank you for reading and supporting Blerdy Otome!
