Sorry it’s been so quiet around here! The wedding wore me out, work has been crazy busy, and now the holidays are right around the corner. Can time slow down please? Anyway, I thought I’d tell all of you some of my favorite things this week that have been occupying my time. MCFT posts are usually 4 or 5 things that I’m loving this week! Here’s 4 things I am loving right now!
Spyro Reignited Trilogy
If you haven’t read my post that is part of The Games That Define Us, you totally should. And of course read the others that are up so far! There’s some really amazing posts this month and I can’t wait to read the rest. Back to Spyro Reignited Trilogy… My wonderful husband knew how much I wanted the new remastered Spyro trilogy, so, of course, he bought it and installed it as soon as he could and I beat the first game in 6 hours. Be on the look out for a Saturday Suggestion featuring the remastered favorite game of my childhood.

For the month of October, I am pulling away from my regular 5 Fandom Friday and Saturday Suggestion posts. Every Friday for the month of October I will be presenting my 5 Freaky Faves in honor of Halloween! This week’s (late) 5 Freaky Faves are my favorite Halloween and spooky YouTubers!

That’s right. Thanks to a lot of help from Matt at Normal Happenings, my dream of creating a YouTube channel has become a reality. I’m excited to present to you, my first video! Today I am “unbagging” this goodie bag of handmade Sailor Moon items from Mind Speaks that I won in their giveaway!
Special thanks to Mind Speaks for holding the giveaway and creating such an amazing bag of handmade goodies.

I’m so excited to let y’all in on what is in store for A Geeky Gal. As you may know, one of my blog resolutions was to set up a YouTube channel. I have a few ideas up my sleeve like Let’s Play videos, geeky unboxings, geeky hauls, and more! Unfortunately, life has been busy with wedding planning and work so this idea has taken a back seat.
But I have good news!

It’s been quite a year on A Geeky Gal blog. I re-branded, gained more AND new traffic, found my writing groove, and even started utilizing social media to meet other bloggers. I’ve had this blog for 4 years, and I have never felt as motivated to continue blogging as I do today.
One of the things I’m most proud of is my new branding. I feel like it’s definitely more “me” and more of the look I wanted. There’s still some changes coming though for the look and feel of the site. I also want to expand to Youtube! I really feel like I can reach more people and more geeks by creating vlogs and Youtube content which brings me to my blog resolutions for this year!

I usually don’t make resolutions because I never keep them. This year feels different though. I decided to focus on small goals that I knew I could complete so that hopefully it’ll push me to do even more. I have lost almost 40 pounds and want to reach my fitness goals this year. I also want to add to my portfolio and plan on giving it the attention is deserves. Here’s 10 of my personal resolutions for the New Year.

Special thank you to Darling Stewie for this topic via her 5 Fandom Friday DLC (Stewie Pack)! She has inspired me to think up my own DLC for A Nerdy Girlie’s original idea of the 5 Fandom Friday topics! Make sure you check out that post soon. Without further ado, meet my 5 favorite Youtubers!
Probably the most “famous” Youtuber in this list is the one and only Markiplier. I discovered him while watching Five Nights at Freddy’s LP’s. He was absolutely hilarious and definitely earned his status of King of FNAF. Other videos of his that I love are his Amnesia LP and all of his Indie Horror RPG LP’s. He’s simply a fantastic, funny, and well-rounded person. If you love watching Let’s Play videos and need a good laugh, check him out.
