It has been a crazy year with so many ups and downs, and my confidence and activity have been all over the place. However, during that time my imagination has been working on overtime and I’ve been cooking up lots of new blog content. Some of you may remember this list I posted to Instagram several months ago teasing you all about what I was plotting – well folks, that was just the tip of the iceberg 😉 Activity has grinded to a halt right now because I’ve been helping my Mother-in-law move and so I’m saving it all up for December and the 12 days of Geeking By! Twelve days of goodies for you guys which will include new gift guides for the holidays, mini-gift guides with requests and new content which is interactive fun stuff for everyone!
I was planning to save it all up and just announce it over the next few months but this sounds like a whole lot more fun! So from December 1st to the 20th, I’ll be posting the 12 days of Geeking By Christmas. Read on to find out more!
New Gift Guides
Last year I introduced the Ultimate Geek Gift Guides and I’m building on that again this year with some new ones. I’ll be adding some new categories to the Geek Gift Guides, Cosplayers and Bullet Journal Junkies, and also adding some new guides for Pagans and Spoonies (Chronic Illnesses). If you think there’s a category I missed out on last year then let me know! If I have time I’ll try and pop in it.
Mini Gift Guides
So what exactly is a mini gift guide? Well if you take a look at the Ultimate Geek Gift Guides you’ll see that they’re pretty intensive and also more designed at the where to and how to stop for Geeks rather than showcasing actual products. This year I want to actually get out there and show you some of the awesome products available especially handmade goods. So I’ll be doing mini-gift guides for certain fandoms and on random themes.
And I’m taking requests!
Want to know what the best Cthuhlu themed gifts are? How about the cutest plushies for your fandom? Or coolest enamel pins to collect? Those are just a few of the ideas I’ve come up with so far. I’ll basically pick a theme and include five products from 10 fandoms based around that theme.
Research is my superpower so hit me with with whatever fandom you’ve got. If it exists I’ll find it.
Clearly I can’t say too much about these otherwise there wouldn’t be much of a surprise. All I’m going to say is that they are interactive things that are for the whole community and I’m very excited to finally be able to share them with you!
Over to You
How about you guys? What do you have planned for the holidays?
If you’re a blogger do you have any special content planned for the holidays? Is it a secret too or can you let us know? 😉
Let me know if you’ve got a holiday gift guide as I’ll be updating my list of gift guides on last years gift guides and also looking out for new ones for this years!
