Blog Birthday Tag

It’s A Geek Girl’s Guide’s birthday! Happy four years to this little blog of mine. And you bet sharing a birthday with Harry Potter was intentional. So to celebrate today, here is a tag all about the blog!

Why did you start this blog?

I had a previous blog and was really enjoying writing in general. I decided I wanted a blog for all the geeky things I enjoy and that didn’t fit in the other blog. So Geek Chic was born. What? This blog isn’t called Geek Chic? Well, it used to be, but I quickly changed it a month or so in cause Geek Chic does not fit me at all and is also the name of a tabletop gaming furniture company.

What is your favorite part of blogging?

Writing and making the graphics for post titles. Writing is cathartic in many ways for me. And I love tweaking graphics in Photoshop and being able to make it however I want.

What was your first blog post ever?

nerd-v-geek

The first post on A Geek Girl’s Guide was Nerd vs. Geek. It is still up so you can go read it if you wish. However, I don’t consider it a very good or accurate post anymore.

What are your favorite blog posts from each year you’ve blogged?

This is honestly going to be difficult but here we go.

2015

Hagrid

Underrated: Hagrid because it was the first that started a whole series of posts and Hagrid is awesome.

2016

 

Ilvermorny Sorting Guide was the first post I did that took tons of research and was super fun to write. It is also an incredibly popular post which doesn’t hurt.

2017

disney-socalian-update

How To Do Disneyland Like A SoCalian was a fun post to write. I also really like the title graphic of this post.

2018

So 2018 was really hard because there is a lot of content from that year that I really love. But I did narrow it down.

ultimate-gift-guide

The Ultimate Gift Guide for Geeks was a massive project that took tons of research as well. Plus it is fun to explore different fandoms and stuff they’d enjoy.

Honorable Mention:

24 Geeky Facts About Me was the post I did for my 24th birthday and it took forever to think of 24 facts about me. But I did it, so it’s now an honorable mention for this.

2019 (so far)

zodiac-vg

Video Games to Play Based on Your Zodiac Sign is a fairly recent post I did. I was brainstorming different post ideas and thought of this one, and I knew I had to do it cause it sounded super fun to write. And it was very fun to write and research.

What have you learned from being a blogger?

Many, many things. If I had to pick one, it is how great it is to have a place to express yourself freely and share what you enjoy. And how important community is.

What goals do you have for your blog?

As of the time of writing this, I honestly have no idea. Life has been very tumultuous recently, and my attention has not been on the future of A Geek Girl’s Guide. I know, though, that I don’t want to stop writing.
