As a part of Blaugust, I wanted to explore the blog and myself as a blogger for a couple of posts. And I figured why not revisit The Blogger Tag and see what has changed since the original version.
How long have you been blogging and why did you start?
A Geek Girl’s Guide is officially 7 years old! That’s the age of a second-grader, which feels wild. But I’ve been blogging since 2014, with my first blog now being private with some posts cross-posted here. I started it as a work challenge to do something every day for 30 days so I chose writing.
Is this current blog your first blog?
Just answered this above. This isn’t my first blog, and I think it is my third or fourth since I started. It also holds the title of my longest running blog.
What would you categorize your blog as?
I find it really hard to categorize AGGG because I cover many topics and the type of content I do evolves with time and my interests. I’d previously say it is a geeky lifestyle blog, but now it is less lifestyle and more of a criticism blog I guess? I’m not sure, so leave a comment with how you would categorize AGGG.
Is it still the same kind of blog as when you first started?
From the perspective of what I cover, yes. How I cover it though has changed a lot. So I would say that it isn’t the same anymore because it has grown a lot.
Top 3 Favorite things about being a blogger!
Getting to write about whatever I want at my own pace.
Getting to share things I enjoy (K-Pop, games, Disney, musicals, etc.)
Getting to say I’ve been doing this for nearly a decade
What is your favorite kind of post to write?
As of late, I’ve been enjoying my ranking posts. I also like save one, drop one posts because they are really easy to come up with and they get me thinking.
What is the hardest post you have ever written and published?
The zodiac posts are always a little difficult because finding recommendations fitting each zodiac description is surprisingly hard. The MBTI recommendations are too, but zodiac is for sure harder.
