Secret Blogger Santa 2019!

This year I’m taking part in the community event Secret Blogger Santa being held by Lightning Ellen. I was randomly assigned Naithin of Time to Loot. Happy Holidays and Winter Veil Naithin! Naithin began like I did blogging about World of Warcraft and has been a member of the geek and gaming blog community since 2009. He returned to blogging this year after a 5 year break and his blog, Time to Loot, has diversified to include other games and a wider array of geekier topics. I’ve really enjoyed following his month long 5 game challenge which he journaled in a 30 day series ofRead More →

The Ultimate Gift Guide for Pagans

Hello and welcome to the Ultimate Gift Guide for Pagans and the second day of the Geeking By 12 Days of Christmas! Spinning out from my Ultimate Gift Guides for Geeks are two new guides this year, this one for Pagans, and another one coming soon for Spoonies (aka people with chronic illnesses). I’m a Pagan and have been since I was about 16 so as with the gift guide for geeks this one has sprung from my own experiences explaining my beliefs to others.

The 12 Days of Geeking By Christmas is coming!

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 12Read More →

Geeking by in December & January

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since there was Geeking By update and eagle-eyed readers may notice that there’s a month missing; November. Honestly not much happened in that month so skipping ahead to December and January instead. Christmas Markets There are two Christmas markets in Glasgow each year and we used to go to at least one of them regularly before our health problems got too bad. Every year we try to get there but are unable to do so, so it was great to be able to do it this year! It was just such a shame that the markets themselves were aRead More →
