The Girly Geek’s Guide to Blogging

The Girly Geek’s Guide to Blogging

In the last few weeks, I’ve had a few different people ask me about any advice I have for people who want to start their own blogs.

One of them even said I’d inspired her to start her own blog, which was both super sweet and a little surreal because I don’t really think of myself as being a Successful Blogger, just a girl who’s here to rave and occasionally rant about video games and other nerdy things.

I had no one to blame but myself; I’d known there was maintenance coming, but I hadn’t been reading the handy notes that Square Enix had been putting up every time I logged in.

They tried to warn me; I just wasn’t having any of it. Continue reading “What I Think of Patch 4.4 So Far”
