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.

The Girly Geek’s Guide to Gardening in FFXIV

A fun little fact about me: I suck at keeping any kind of plant.

I’ve tried to keep all kinds of different houseplants over the years, all of which died equally sad and droopy deaths; from fickle orchids to rose bushes to gerbera daisies (which are supposed to be sturdy, but I guess not). Continue reading “The Girly Geek’s Guide to Gardening in FFXIV”
