Spoilers! Mid-Year 2019 Blog + Personal Resolutions

It’s that time of the year where I check in on all of the resolutions I made at the beginning of 2019! I really needed this refresher after taking a break in May. I won’t be necessarily changing my 2019 resolutions, but I do think I should revise some of my goals after coming back from a mental health break due to burn out. I have a new posting schedule, and my goals should reflect that.

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!

300 (and 1) Blog Posts on A Geeky Gal!

300 (and 1) Blog Posts on A Geeky Gal!

Say hello to lucky post number 301! That’s right; Monday’s post was the 300th post on A Geeky Gal. I didn’t want to deviate from my blog post schedule so I hope you’ll forgive me that this is number 301 and not 300. Can you believe there’s over 300 posts on this little blog of mine now?! THREE HUNDRED!

I have some BIG posts planned for this month as well as two YouTube videos and Wednesday tend to be my biggest day as far as views go. In an effort to put out a post today without stretching myself too thin, I thought I’d give you a peek at what April has in store…

Spoilers! What’s Next?

Spoilers! What’s Next?

Usually, today you would be reading a full length post, but due to life and adulting, I’m just not prepared today! Instead of a normal post on this Wednesday, I thought I would just let you all know what’s in store for the rest of the month of March for the blog as well as my new YouTube channel.

What you can expect: Top Ten Fitness Geeks

I’m finally writing up another Top Ten Geeks post! This one has been in the works for awhile but so many bloggers have given up on their blogs, Instagram, etc. that I’ve had to do research to find more geeks that are into fitness! As soon as I get that sorted out, I’ll be releasing that post for all you health and fitness geeks out there. In the meantime, drop some of your favorite fitness geeks in the comments for me!

What you can expect: Spoilers! We Went to Disney!

For our honeymoon in January, Alec and I went to Disney World! Now, most of what I captured is on video (see below about what I am doing with the clips!), but I have plenty of photos that I plan to share in a blog post here about our experiences: where we stayed, what we ate, and what we did during our week at Disney.

What you can expect: Saturday Suggestions

I have several Saturday Suggestion posts that I have yet to finish including a couple of books, some video games, and a card game. I can’t decide which one I want to post this month. Do you have one you’d prefer over the others? Let me know in the comments!

YouTube

What you can expect: Geeks Doing Geeky Things

I’ve hinted at doing interviews for awhile and am so excited that I decided to wait until I got my YouTube channel set up! Don’t get me wrong; written interviews are great! But there’s just something about being in person that makes it feel more special. My very first interview is slotted for this Friday. It will be accompanied by a blog post as well!

What you can expect: DisneyMoon 2019

For our honeymoon in January, (see above) Alec and I went to Disney World! It was an amazing experience and I was able to capture a lot of our excitement on video. I am currently compiling it into a cute video for YouTube!

Readers! Please drop your favorite fitness geeks in the comments below, let me know what Saturday Suggestion you’d like to see the most, and lastly, let me know how you feel about a bi-weekly vs. monthly YouTube upload schedule!

My Pirate Crew Tag

My Pirate Crew Tag

When the World Government executed notorious pirate Gol D. Roger he announced that he’d hidden all his treasure in one place and whoever finds it gets to keep it all. This saw the beginning of the Great Pirate Era and, like most others, you would probably love to make that treasure your own.

To do that, you’re going to need a crew. Admittedly, this is based on my experience watching One Piece, however, you don’t have to have seen One Piece to join in. You will need to assemble a crew from the anime you’ve seen, selecting the best character for the positions. — Lynn Sheridan

Lynn tagged me in this very neat Pirate Crew Tag he created awhile back, and I have finally gotten around to it! Thanks for the tag Lynn! If you’re new to Lynn’s blog, definitely check out his books here!

Spoilers! 2019 Blog + Personal Resolutions

Spoilers! 2019 Blog + Personal Resolutions

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.
