Bocaranda has worked for several Venezuelan media organizations since his introduction into journalism. He originally had a radio show with Union Radio titled Los Runrunes de Nelson and a column with El Universal known as Runrunes. In 2010, Bocaranda found the website Runrunes, carrying on the similar name of his other works.
Runrunes has had multiple controversies with the Venezuelan government. Diosdado Cabello, a high-ranking Venezuelan official, intimidated a journalist of the website on his television program, criticizing their work. In January 2016, Bocaranda was detained for nearly 2 hours at Maiquetia International Airport while authorities checked his phone. On 6 May 2016, Bocaranda's Twitter account was hacked with the hacker attempting to discredit the journalist.
