Spoilers! Meet Megan: the Geek Behind the Keyboard

Hi there! Welcome to my geeky corner of the internet. My name is Megan, and if this post seems a little familiar, that’s because it’s been posted TWICE before! My very first little introductory blog post from FIVE YEARS AGO was posted on my blogger site before I rebranded and moved to WordPress. Then I thought I’d make a new updated introduction in 2017 after rebranding A Geeky Gal. Now, I’m back again with a shiny new introduction post to re-introduce myself to my 700+ WordPress followers.

What you can expect from my blog and me:

This is probably what has changed the most and continues to evolve. I finally have a brand for my blog. Gone are the weekly rambling posts (though those still make it through the cracks sometimes). Here come the scheduled, organized, and well-thought-out posts! If you would like to get in touch with me about any of these series in regards to guest posting or sponsoring me, see my About Me page.

I’ve been pretty good about doing yearly blog challenges as well! If that sounds like something that is up your alley, check out my 30 Day Video Game Challenge post or my 30 Day Anime Challenge post. This year’s challenge is literally right around the corner so keep your eyes peeled for something fun and different!

Blog series are still in full swing and are posted weekly or biweekly or monthly with other geeky posts sprinkled in. You can read all about my new schedule here after my month long break thanks to a pesky thing called burn out!

In the words of a past Megan…

Thank you to readers, new and old. Without you, this blog wouldn’t be possible. I really enjoy writing each of these posts and spend much more time writing them than when I first started. Writing turned into a passion for me but this blog definitely dropped off the map a bit before I dusted it off and tried again. So welcome to the old, but improved A Geeky Gal!

Stay tuned…

  1. That was a nice (re) introduction to you and your blog! I remember you talking about some of those things, but there were aspects I didn’t know at first. That’s really cool. I think I’m due for another update about me on the Ospreyshire blog once 8/1 hits. Haha!

  2. Converses are the best thing. I wear them pretty much all the time as well. This is great to do a reintroduction and I love how yours has random facts as well as blog stuff. I might take this as an idea for the future…

      1. That’s amazing! You wouldn’t get a lot of second-hand converse here in Ireland, maybe in Dublin. I love the idea of getting them thrifted though, so much better for the environment and your pocket!

      2. It is and it isn’t. So there are quite a lot of charity shops that sell clothes they received as donations. While there are less ‘second-hand’ shops, so it’s harder to find consistency. A lot of charity shops are great, but you would rarely see converse or brands. Also, there isn’t a huge population in Ireland.

      3. That stinks! Have you tried online thrifting? I think depop has quite a big following that includes other countries besides the US, but I haven’t personally bought anything on there yet. I’ve been toying with the idea of doing an online thrift haul as well as a traditional thrift haul.

      4. Same here! I’ve gotten familiar with Poshmark but maybe it’d be cool to grab a few things from Poshmark, Depop and ThredUp to see how they compare? Oooh that would be so much fun! You always give me the best ideas!
