Spoilers! The Geek Behind the Keyboard (Updated!)

Spoilers! The Geek Behind the Keyboard (Updated!)

Hi there, and welcome to my corner of the internet. This was my little introductory blog post from FOUR YEARS AGO. I thought I’d post it again for the new readers and make the changes necessary for all the things that have happened so far!

A little about me:

  • My name is Megan. I’m 24 years old.
  • I am from a small town in Alabama. I live in St. Louis, Missouri. I am a 3D modeler and graphic designer. Work likes to call me a hybrid.
  • I have a dog named Padme.
  • I am married to my best friend who is from Ireland. We went through the K1 Visa process together and are working on his green card currently.
  • Hobbies: gaming, reading, writing, drawing, watching Netflix, and pinning my imaginary life on Pinterest (come on, who doesn’t?).

What you can expect from my blog and me:

This is probably what has changed the most. I finally have a brand for my blog. Gone are the weekly rambling posts. 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.

Blog series are in full swing and are posted weekly or biweekly or monthly with other geeky posts sprinkled in. Convention Life is everything cosplay and convention-related. 5 Fandom Friday is a blog series first started by The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick that gets posted every Friday. Link Loves is a new series that I’m using to post my favorite links from blogs or articles or anything else I came across online that week or month. My Current Favorite Things (MCFT) is usually 4 to 5 items I am loving right now. Sprinkled between these series are posts for Geek Fashion & Tech, Reviews: Rants & Raves on the newest things I’ve personally tried, Saturday Suggestions on games, TV shows, anime, manga, and comics, and Spoilers! posts which are about me!

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…

Spoilers! the Geek Diaries | Introduction

Spoilers! the Geek Diaries | Introduction

This is the very first installment of Spoilers! the Geek Diaries. Essentially, this where will where all my personal posts will be categorized. Personal posts may consist of happiness, sadness, my past, my future, my relationships, my career path, my family, my journey with immigration, trips taken near and far, my hopes, my insecurities, my dreams, and my fears.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, back when I first started blogging, everything I posted was deeply personal. From my relationships to my deepest of insecurities to my hopes and far-flung dreams. I want to get back to that. There is a person behind this blog, a real genuine person who has thoughts and feelings and a crazy life. Things are changing for me. I want to share that with you.

This is me introducing myself to the internet and to you, my readers. This goes beyond the “About Me” page and beyond my usual comfort zone. This is beyond the basics of demographics.

Spoilers! The Geek Behind the Keyboard

Hi there, and welcome to my little corner of the internet. I recently moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress. This was my little introductory blog. I thought I’d post it for the new readers as well as edit it and add a little bit of new stuff for my ole’ faithful readers!

A little about me:

  • My name is Megan. I’m 21, and I like to think I’m pretty normal.
  • I am from/live in Alabama in a small town. I work as a graphic designer in a “big” city and go to school full time for Game Art. It sounds like I’m really busy, and 99.9% of the time I am. Luckily I graduate soon.
  • I have a dog named Padme.
  • I tend to be weird, nerdy, silly, and shy (unless I know you then most likely you already find me not-so-shy).
  • Hobbies: gaming, reading, writing, drawing, listening, watching Netflix, pinning my imaginary life on Pinterest (come on, who doesn’t?), being awesome, etc.
