How I Became a Blogger

How I Became a Blogger

I’ve always been one of those people that just kind of falls into things by accident. Luckily, they usually seem to work out in my favour—sometimes it’s little things like finding a $5 bill on the ground right outside my car door, or sometimes it’s big things like picking a pet parakeet that would live for almost a decade. And, you know, definitely be a source of joy and support for some of life’s most tumultuous times.

My career definitely falls into that category.

Pokémon Let’s Go: A Girly Geek Review

Pokémon Let’s Go: A Girly Geek Review

Back in August last year, I was super excited about the prospect of the first Pokémon game to ever hit the Switch. There was a lot I was looking forward to; from the Pokéball Plus to playing multiplayer, and especially finally being able to walk around with my Pokémon again.

I kind of resigned myself to not being able to play it right away, because we didn’t have a Switch and because we didn’t have the money to buy ourselves one.

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.

Celebrating a Year of Blogging

Celebrating a Year of Blogging

Today, I sat down to start writing in the foulest mood.

I was running on maybe four hours of sleep, three cups of coffee, and a minimal amount of food because I forgot to go grocery shopping or just adult in general.

I had some ideas I wanted to write down, though, so I plugged in my headphones, stretched my hands, and got down to business. Continue reading “Celebrating a Year of Blogging”
