Hi everyone! DesignGEEK here.
Alright so word of warning this is probably going to be a long one. Stick with me here…or don’t, no pressure.
Where to begin? Well, I see that our last post on here was in 2016…and it’s now the last quarter of 2018. What can I say except, life. As DataGEEK mentioned, in 2016 we were planning a wedding, then we had our wedding in 2017, went on a week-long honeymoon to Paris & London that we paid for in points and miles (I’m sure DataGEEK will do a post on that later), then we were stuck in Hawaii for a month after my dad (who is doing great now) had a heart attack, and then we bought a house, which we are still settling into 5 months later. So yeah, life. It’s busy. Always.
So why start this…blog? brand? thing?…up again now? Well, I quit my job. I wasn’t happy and we decided that it would be better for me to quit and focus on getting a job I enjoyed rather than keep trying to work, job hunt, and be unhappy.
So what’s the plan? Well, I plan on job searching, but I’m hopeful that I can also spend time on here. I plan on using GEEKinSTL as a place to be creative, share my designs, and honestly, learn wordpress.
So that’s the plan. That’s why now.
I will admit, it’s hard for me to just jump into this. I am a bit of a perfectionist, so doing this without having our site and logo and everything “perfect” is hard, but as Bobby Bones says, it doesn’t have to be perfect, just start. So here goes.
I think I’ll end by reintroducing us and what we’ll be doing (or trying to do) here. I think my husband said it pretty good in our first post:
Who is GEEKinSTL?
Since we’re just getting started (again), might as well start with an introduction. GEEKinSTL is made up of two distinct parts: DesignGEEKinSTL and DataGEEKinSTL. Both of those parts will become more obvious as this site and identity, builds, but for now it should be pretty obvious that we’re a couple of geeks in St. Louis.
What is GEEKinSTL?
GEEKinSTL is going to be our outlet to do very geeky things, including Etsy freelancing, Pinterest-style DIY, becoming involved in sports analytics, or talking about DataGEEK’s near-obsession with points and miles. And, let’s be honest, there will probably be some Star Wars. And Doctor Who (yes, that’s how DataGEEK proposed and was a big part of our wedding).
Will our logo be redesigned? Will we keep referring to ourselves as DesignGEEK and DataGEEK? Will we actually post? Well, you’ll have to come back to see! Or follow us on Twitter or Instagram: GEEKinSTL
Until next time, GEEK out!
