You read that right, in May (I’m so late on this it’s not even funny any more) the amazing Stacey from Geeks and Lattes hosted a Comic Book swap on the Geek Girl Bloggers group! I don’t know how much I’ve talked about it yet, but I freaking love this group. They are so amazing and supportive and don’t make you feel dumb for asking questions about how they got their blog the way it is, it’s so amazing to be part of such an awesome group of ladies.
Anyway, this post was supposed to be up WEEKS ago, and I got distracted with creating a new site, and starting a new diet, and you know… life that I just kept putting it on the back burner. This is totally my bad, but I have to show you what I got!
This is a new beginning for me (A New Beginning, Same Nerd… get it?), but I didn’t want to forget where I started, so I brought all my posts with me! It took me far too long to come up with this title. I was torn for a really long time between this title or some lyrics from Jekyll and Hyde (the musical). This fit the theme a bit more.
Raise a glass to new beginnings!
Though I imported all of my posts from WordPress.com, this is my first official post on my brand new shiny site. I’m a little scared about taking this new step in my blogging universe, but I’m equally excited.
In January I talked about how I wanted to move to my own site, and after a couple months of researching and procrastinating (lets be real, it was mostly procrastinating), it’s finally here! It’s a bit minimal, but I love it just the same. Here you’ll find the same things you found on my previous blog, but with a newfound sense of purpose and a little bit more heart!
I’m going to attempt to keep up with more of the weekly features I used to do (Thursday and Thrilled, Funko Friday and 5FF), while also trying to schedule some time to do some more monthly things. I will be returning to my Rewind articles again, I loved doing those. I also started a list of all the Funkos I own… not for any particular reason, I just wanted to.
But for now, I’m just making sure everything is in it’s proper spot and functions well. If you have any advice for a newbie in hosting, please send them my way! I’ll take all I can get.
What are some of the things you learned when switch to your very own hosted site?
I was lucky enough to be included in the Geek Girl Bloggers Secret Santa this year. This group is filled with amazing women who write about awesome things. The exchange was organized by Danielle @ From Girlie to Nerdy (who did an AMAZING job) and we all tried to make sure that our gifts were received last week so we could all write up a post today.
GEEK GIRL BLOGGERS SECRET SANTA!
I got mine a week or so ago and I could not be happier. During the winter I like to drink a lot of tea/hot cocoa/coffee and now I can do so in true nerd style with my disappearing TARDIS mug. I don’t know who my Santa was (she wanted to keep it a secret), but I love it! The TARDIS is on one side before you pour in hot liquid, then when you pour in your drink it moves to the other side! I LOVE IT! <3
