About Dondi

Truth or fail? Let’s see…

-Dondi is an out-of-print comic strip that was syndicated between the 1950s and the 1980s featuring a WWII orphan boy from Italy who made his home in the American West.

-Dondi owns a Greek cat, a fully stocked rack of rock climbing gear, several pairs of Docs and Danskos and virtually lives in jeans.

-Dondi is an employee of the Fort Collins Bike Co-op and a freelance writer. She divides her spare time between cycling around, hanging out with friends and family IRL, and living on the Internet.

So of course they’re all true. The second two are true about me. Hi, I’m Dondi. Like “Gandhi” but with a “D” and probably wreaking of more havoc than Gandhi. Considerably more.

I am a freelance writer and I live in Northern Colorado with my Greek cat and two wonderful roommates. I hold one of the very few paid positions at the Fort Collins Bike Co-op, which is my favorite place in town. I own more jeans and Docs and Danskos than girly clothes and tend to think of my style as very Colorado: outdoorsy, kind of jock. I ride my bikes everywhere and enjoy free time cuddling with my cat and browsing around on the Internet and hanging out with wonderful people on occasion IRL. I am hugely into YouTubers like CGP Grey, the vlogbrothers, Veritasium, mental_floss, SoulPancake, SciShow, Crash Course, Vsauce and generally just great videocators. I love great blogs too, like Hyperbole and a Half.

The idea here is to write often. As often as I can. Also, I’m going to repost some of the posts I’ve posted to other blogs that will sadly probably fall out of maintenance now that I am working on really constructing this one like The Daily Page and Clambering About and Downward Dyno.

So Hello, Internet! as I am so terribly fond of hearing CGP Grey say. And for now, adieu.

    It’s good to see a fellow Nerdfighter and CGP Gray fan here. 🙂
