I’ve made great strides towards a lot of these resolutions, but others have fallen to the wayside (as they do sometimes). My mental health break was a great learning experience in that I realized what is most important to me, and how I can better handle future cases of burn out. Let’s be honest though, I want to avoid burn out again as much as possible. I have a feeling the year 2020’s resolutions will be much different from this year!
Happy (late) New Year geeks! 2017 was amazing for A Geeky Gal, and 2018 was no different. I posted more, commented more, and just feel overall more confident in my blog. It honestly gives me a lot of excitement to see how much farther I can take my blog in 2019!
I couldn’t have done so well this year though without all of you and my fellow bloggers. Matt at Normal Happenings has been instrumental in giving advice and being a sounding board for ideas, and his collaborations as well as him letting me have given me more confidence as a writer/blogger. He also helped me get my first YouTube video up this year so I’m looking forward to doing more of those! All of that brings me to my resolutions for 2019.
Tomorrow I will be posting a new 30 day challenge prompt! Several months ago I did my own 30 Day Video Game Challenge. I really wanted to do one more this year and decided upon a theme… a theme that will be announced tomorrow when I post the entire 30 day prompt list! I’m so excited to share this with all of you, especially with the small success I’ve had with my new YouTube channel so far and how far my blog has come.
All of you have had a real hand in the success of A Geeky Gal. Thank you. I never imagined my little blog would reach so many people. And I never thought I’d have a YouTube channel. As a way to give back to this wonderful community, I wanted to do one more 30 Day Challenge this year.
So here’s your official heads up! Tomorrow I will be posting September’s 30 day challenge which will start on September 1st. Keep an eye on my blog and social media channels so you can get to writing! And of course be sure to link back to the prompt so I can give your posts a shout out on Twitter or Facebook.
I can’t wait to see everyone’s answers! Anyone want to guess the challenge? Leave your guess in the comments!
We all have that one game that is truly a part of our identity. It’s not just any video game, it’s our video game. It’s the one that’s always on our mind when we think about nostalgia or even games in general — the one with the most memories and stories attached to it.
There are currently TWO spots left! If you want in on this huge collaboration follow this link to Normal Happenings post. Matt and Nikki at Normal Happenings have made this incredibly simple and organized to keep confusion to a minimum.
Questions? Just leave a comment on the main post with any questions you have about the project! You seriously don’t want to miss out!
I found this tag over at A Geek Girl’s Guide and thought it be a great post to feature on my blog! (And I’m writing waaayyy too many long posts this week that just aren’t ready yet so have a cool tagged post for now!) I encourage all of my blogger friends to participate and link back to Michelle’s initial post of the tag!
The lovely Chrissie over at Vamp It Up Manchester was kind enough to nominate me for the Mystery Blogger Award! Thank you so much Chrissie! Chrissie shares edgy styles (a personal favorite of mine), cruelty free beauty, as well as vegetarian meals and restaurants she and her bloke try out. You should really check out her blog!

I saw this tag over at Cateaclysmic and thought it sounded fun! If you want to participate, I highly encourage you to do so! Just leave me a comment with a link to your post and I’ll check out your answers too. Are you ready for mine? Here we go!
What is your must-have tech gadget? Definitely my Fitbit. It’s been helping me reach my fitness goals and keeping me in check. I was super lucky and got it as a gift from my lovely husband at Christmas. Highly recommend!
Which house do you belong to in Hogwarts? Ravenclaw!
Who is your favorite Doctor? Ten of course, though Nine holds a very special place in my heart.
If you could have dinner with any fictional character, who would it be? Teal’c from Stargate SG-1. I tell my husband every episode how much I love his facial expressions (or lack thereof). And he’s undeniably funny without meaning to be!
What is your gaming system of choice? I discussed in this post about how the PlayStation 4 is my favorite gaming system.
If you had a super power, what would it be? The ability to bend time and space like Hiro from Heroes. “Fine. Stay here. Be just like everyone else. I wanna boldly go where no man has gone before.”
What is your favorite fantasy world? Harry Potter. Hands down. I love the books so much and love to get lost in the world JK Rowling made for her characters.
If you could be any fictional race, what would you be? I would love to be an elf. I always gravitate towards that race for any video or board game.
Star Trek or Star Wars? That’s a hard one. Don’t make me choose! How about both plus Stargate?
