30 Day Geek Out Challenge: Complete List

30 Day Geek Out Challenge: Complete List

Welcome to the 30 Day Geek Out Challenge! If you’ve participated in one of my challenges before, like the 30 Day Video Game Challenge and the 30 Day Anime Challenge, this challenge was a little different. Not only are challengers not taking on questions centered around their favorite (and not so favorite) games and anime, but I did not release the entire questionnaire blog prompt before Day 1.

This prompt is all about you and what makes you geeky. We’ll be taking a look at your favorite fandoms, characters, hobbies, the geek community, and more. You can make you answers as long or as short as you like, but I find that telling the story behind every answer makes for a cathartic blog post. I invite all of you to take on this challenge, geeky blogger or not! I think one of the best parts of this challenge is how anyone can answer these questions.

Spoilers! Mid-Year 2019 Blog + Personal Resolutions

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…

Sunshine Blogger Award (+ tags)

Sunshine Blogger Award (+ tags)

I’m no stranger to the Sunshine Blogger award, and it warms my heart every time I get a nomination! It’s been awhile since I’ve received one of these awards, so this one really means a lot! Our writing community here on WordPress is so supportive and spreads love where ever they go. Special thank you to Neko Jonez for the award nomination.

If you don’t know Neko Jonez (and you should!), he’s a phenomenal writer and has many posts that will make any gamer think twice about a subject like his post on Difficulty in Gaming. He also does reviews and first impressions which are great if you’re looking for your next game! Thanks again for the nomination Neko Jonez! On to the questions…

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.
