About The Bird

I think it’s about time I update this again.

Hi. I’m Camila Sortica; that’s my real name. Though online I prefer to go by Blackbird, or B.B. It’s been my online persona for almost a decade and probably the name most people associate with me now.

I was born, raised, and am currently living in Porto Alegre, Brazil. I do freelance translation work for a profession, although my ideal scenario would be to make enough from writing that I’m able to do that full time. It’s a still a very long term goal at this point.

I like games, music, movies, fan fiction, cartoons, literature, and a multitude of other things I’ll end up rambling about now and then. I have weird sense of humor, I use F-bombs a lot. I rant on occasion, but for the most part, I’m just a scatter-brained artist trying to cope with anxiety and life.

I started this blog in a moment of boredom as a way to just let out some thoughts. It’s still mostly a personal blog with no set theme, though what I’ve become most consistent with over the years is writing reviews and just general opinion posts on writing and pop culture. And the fan fiction posts. I started those on a whim and they have become the most read thing I’ve ever written.

Still, this blog remains just a personal blog. I have a good number of things ongoing here that I do plan to continue, but what I do and when is gonna depend on my mood and my availability for the most part. My focus shifts a lot, my interests don’t particularly change, but my willingness to go into lengths about one thing or another changes quite a lot as well, so consistency isn’t something I can promise here. I am dedicated to whatever I decide to ramble on about at any given moment and I try to make my reviews and assessments as constructive as possible, even if it’s something I don’t particularly enjoy. Like Twilight. So I can promise that, if anything. I try to provide something humorous and constructive with my posts, even when it involves something so horrible it baffles me.

I’m not great at talking about myself, so I guess the best way to find out more about me is browse some of my posts. Whether it’s fiction or some opinionated rant, my writing is still the best way to get to know me.

Hope you guys enjoy the ride.

  1. You sound like a really interesting person! Great about me page. I’m from the USA so I have to ask, what do you find interesting about Connecticut out of all the states? I just find it interesting that it is mentioned next to New Zealand. Although, Connecticut is pretty nice! It’s very impressive that you learned English on your own and you choose to write in English. There is so much motivation and dedication in that, I’m impressed!

    • Oooh, you’re chatty, I likes that. πŸ™‚

      It’s always been a thing of mine to not want to go to places like NY that are too big, too crowded, too everything. I always wanted to go to the places near those places instead. CT is one of those places and just so happens it’s where my friend Sarah (aka my wifey) lives, so I have someone I know and trust there, not to mention a place to stay, lol. And I have vowed to visit… And steal her… And flee to New Zealand. >.>


      • I like that! Everyone always says they want to go to NYC and thats it. Which I mean, NYC is great (I am from upstate NY), but there is still so much more of the US to see. Your plan of stealing your friend sounds great! I’ve also heard New Zealand is amazing!


  2. BB, I enjoyed your about page πŸ™‚ You wield the English language much better than many people I know here in “the States” Unless you like snow and ice, you might want to consider a state a bit more southernly than Connecticut. Best of luck to you and your future writing!

    • Heh, quirky sounds about right.

      Thanks for coming, make yourself at home… There are cookies…

      There were cookies around here somewhere. hmmm…

      Anyway, hope you stick around. πŸ™‚


  3. OlΓ‘ Camila! I am a friend of ASpaceWithin, and I started following your blog recently after moving into WordPress. I love the fact that you post so often everyday, I always see you in my Blog Reader feed. Your language is clear and colourful, to the extent that I thought you were a native English speaker. Keep up the good work! By the way, I want to nominate you for the Versatile Blogger Award, a recognition for bloggers with dynamic blogging skills. More info could be founf here in my blog: http://wp.me/p5B7t4-2H and if you do not want to take part, you may wish to decline. Thank you!

    • Terrific! I was just telling myself I needed to get another one of those. πŸ™‚

      Welcome to The Nest. I hope you don’t mind the mess too much, I’ve been terribly busy. And also, I’m a bit messy.
