You guys, I really am so sorry for the absence these past few weeks. Life has been a little … hectic. Aside from getting a really nasty flu and being out of commission for a couple of weeks, work has been ~*dramatic*~.
But that’s another post for another time!
I wanted to write today to let you guys know of some changes possibly/probably coming to GirlyGeekGirl.
I’ve mentioned a few times recently that I’m considering switching to self-hosting. The jury is still out on this one, but there are some other changes I wanted y’all’s opinion on.
Namely, I’m considering re-branding/re-naming/re-styling the blog. Now that I’m in my 30s, I’m wondering if I’m too old to refer to myself as ‘girl,’ which if so, puts a cramp in the whole ‘girly geek girl’ nomenclature.
I’ve mulled over various re-branding ideas, and what kept popping into my head is that GirlyGeekGirl was always meant to be a mosaic. A hodgepodge of girly things like fashion and baking, and geeky things like fantasy novel and game reviews.
So, the name mosaicca occurred to me, and I really liked it.
It was a made-up word that encompasses my eclectic interests, but one that clearly demonstrated the kaleidoscope of topics my blog is about.
So, I want y’all’s completely honest opinions. Do you like the idea of GirlyGeekGirl being re-branded and re-named to something a bit more sleek and sophisticated? The mock-up above is just that, so the home page wouldn’t necessarily look like this. But it certainly wouldn’t be as cartoonish as GGG is.
Regardless of if/when I do any blog re-branding, I’ve also realized that I simply can’t keep up the schedule of posting 4-5 days a week. At least not with the prescribed daily topics I’ve been doing.
I hope you all can forgive my absence in both posting and reading/commenting on your blogs!
Until next time,
