Did everyone survive the holidays? I think we spent more time in the car than we did with people. So, let’s lighten the load and talk about gifting this week including after Thanksgiving shopping, geeky gifts, Heifers - and where you might be able to find a Baby Yoda.
This week has been a hard one - and if it is possible to be behind in every aspect of your life, I am. This week I talked about family and friends, deep friendship, impostor syndrome, IGTV addition, a podcast suggestion, and why libraries are cool.
From a Productive Flourishing newsletter - a reminder from Maya Angelou:
It is always about the work. In the latter years of your life, your happiness and your self-esteem will be determined by the mountains you surmounted, the valleys you climbed out of, and the life and/ or career that you forged for yourself.
MAYA ANGELOU, Rainbow in the Cloud
I’m getting my ducks in a row for the podcasts and reflecting on life in general. Here is the new format for Geek Meets Social (GMS) - each week I have a different focus. For each month the weeks will have a different focus.
This week we’ll chat about a Prodigal Son, my return to World of Warcraft, a new podcast, and a social media release. Plus we'll talk about writing Fantasy and the course I'm taking
This week we talk about the St. Louis Cardinals, Metallica’s S&M2 theatrical release, a Disney update, and my planner woes along with a podcast and app suggestions this week on episode 4. Also, guest and unexpected co-host Clover, my cat. Enjoy her caterwauling and purring as a how bonus!
It’s time for episode three and I just finished co-chairing the Moonlight & Magnolias Writers’ Conference with Sherrie Lea Morgan. Post conference I have a fun contemporary romance, a historical podcast, two apps, and the stories of how Shadow and Clover came into my life.
On November 2nd, I'll be talking about my Top Ten Tips And Tricks of Social Media at Northwest Georgia Writers Conference. Things actually kick off in Calhoun on Friday night with a dinner and two comedy routines. On Saturday, it is all about the writing. You can take a look at the schedule here. I'll be speaking at 2:30 and 3:30. I'm looking forward to attending a conference and not co-chairing one! I hope to see you in Calhoun, I'll be in the NaNoWriMo writer's room during down times.
A weekly roundup of favorites in the world of a gamer girl social media geek. Get ready to discover books, podcasts, apps, social media tips, good news and more as we journey through the digital life.
It’s been a crazy week and I just got back from an academic conference in Asheville and I’m co-chairing a conference this coming weekend. In this episode I talk about some Asheville favorites, Star Wars, Downtown Abbey, and living with a deadly food allergy.
Welcome to Geek Meets Social - Episode 1 available on Podbean, and coming soon to Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify and more. This week I talk about sushi at Disney Springs and the Momentum Planner as well as book, podcast, and binge-watching suggestions.
You know when you have that nagging feeling that you should really finish that website refresh/rebuild and change hosts after multiple problems at your old provider? Well, the invoice was coming due and the domain need renewing and I finally said, "screw it, let's do it." So here we are at my new site built on Weebly and hosted by them. Hopefully, they will be better than MacHighway who I was with for years (and years). Time will tell.
While I was rebuilding the site, I decided it was time to redo my logo. Years ago I found an artist at fivrr.com and had the one above made for me. It has served me well, but the tagline is now a podcast that I record with Wil Nix and has moved on to have a life of its own. So, it became time to rebrand and expand. Refreshing and renew. Or better known as drive myself a little crazy.
