Sorry, zombies, I don’t like you that much after all.

Once upon a time, I wanted to add supernatural elements to my blog. I thought maybe I’d start with zombies. Realizing that I didn’t know as much about zombies as I did almost every other creature in the world of fantasy, I decided to do some research before blogging. During that research, I became very bored, very quickly. Turns out, I’m just not that into zombies.

Don’t get me wrong… I enjoy the occasional zombie story. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was a fun. Fido was hilariously cute and definitely worth watching. A few other zombie stories have entertained me. But, this experiences reminded me that I only like zombies a little. I’ve always been more of a vampire girl (and a unicorn/hobbit/minotaur/ghost girl). My entire life, it’s always been zombies in moderation, and vampires with gluttonous zeal. With that in mind, I have no idea what I was thinking when the thought of zombie blogging first popped into my head. Maybe I was tired and felt zombie-like? Who knows?

From now on, I’m going to stick with what I like and what I know (which, admittedly, isn’t much).

Since nobody reads this blog, except the occasional friend or relative when I force a link on them and say, “read this, damn it,” I’ve decided I’m going to have a little bit of fun here. In the near future, I’m going to start a semi-regular series on how to survive a zombie apocalypse. It might not get people reading, but at least I’ll be entertained. The first post will be up some time over the weekend or maybe next week. The topic will be necessary weaponry.

Why zombies? Good question. I mentioned a zombie apocalypse on my “About” page, so I thought maybe I’d somehow tie that into the content of my blog. Also, it simply seemed like a fun thing to do. (And wasn’t that the greatest story ever?!? Maybe I’ll tell it again some day).

Edited to add: It is pure coincidence that immediately following my post on the death of a friend, there’s a post about zombies. I’m 93% convinced my subconscious mind had nothing to do with that.

One more quick edit: Ex-Husband kindly reminded me (in an eye-rolling sort of way) that blogging about zombies has been over-done, and the “trend” has long passed. I realize this. But I still like zombies and zombie blog posts, so I’m going to zombie-blog whether the online world and Ex-husband like it or not. If it makes any of you feel better, I have no intention of letting the zombies dominate my blog. They will be here be in addition to, rather than in place of, regular Gina-blogging.
