I know, I am a few days late.
The holidays are over. I have a few seconds to breathe and I thought I put up a post to talk about the last year, explain where I’ve been for the past few weeks, and discuss the coming year for Geek Bear’s Den.
Geek Bear’s Den is my first internet project. I have had a blog over on blogger but that never seemed the same as doing something like this. I spent about two and a half years writing for Zero Fortitude and Ideology of Madness. Both of these sites are Podcast based and I started writing for them to give them content for their websites. It was a wonderful experience and they are great bunch of people that I am grateful to have met and worked with. I recommend swinging by the sites and checking them out. My posts on Zero Fortitude are sadly very few as they had two site crashes due to hacking which led to most of posts being lost. You will have to go back about a year on Ideology of Madness but my posts are still there.
It was in the beginning of 2015 that several of my friends gave me the push to start my own site. They helped me with the technical aspect as well as the confidence to just go forward with the idea. It was a little nerve-wracking in the beginning. I was worried about what I was writing about and would people read it. It took a few months for me to get over this nervousness as well as the worry about what people might think about what I was writing about. It was nice to get to this point and be able to move forward without that weight.
I have been bad at posting over the past month and a half. The holidays have kept me busy. In addition, I started a new job that has the requirement of passing a test at the end of January in order to keep it. They have been training me both to do the job as well as pass the test. I have been using what time I have available to study for this test. It definitely has been stressful but well worth the effort.
the plan going forward is two-fold. First, I am going to endeavor to have at least a post every week. I fell behind on this at the end of 2015 but one post a week is an easy schedule and I am going to hold myself to it. Secondly, I am going to not worry so much about the topics I chose to write about. The general gist of the posts will still be reviews about geeky things but I will feel more confident to just throw in personal post about me and the things that I am thinking about or working through.
Thanks for reading Geek Bear’s Den during 2015. I hope that you stick around for 2016!
