Hello lovely readers!
Though I've tried to maintain my social media presence through Facebook and the occasional Tweet, you'll notice that I haven't had a new post over here since November 2. In the interest of transparency, I have been away to a lot of things going on in my personal life. On November 3, my mom passed away. She was my best friend, my confidant, my sounding board, my biggest cheerleader. She was also a huge supporter of Kentucky Geek Girl and all of the fun things that I've been able to do since starting the blog.
Because of my mom's death, I withdrew from my classes and took the rest of the semester off, but now I'm halfway through my second (first full) semester in graduate school and that is taking up the majority of my time. It's hard for me to find extra time to blog, well, except this entry that I'm writing when I should be writing a grant proposal. Anyway, even before this hiatus from blogging, I realized that things had changed for me.
I have loved my time writing for Kentucky Geek Girl. It has connected me with amazing people, wonderful experiences, and provided me with the opportunity to make friendships that will last a lifetime. KGG has helped me become a better writer and allowed me to present several panels at LCTC, including our packed house Doctor Who panel, and a respectable showing at my Star Trek presentation at Wizard World.
But, like all things, it's time for Kentucky Geek Girl to come to and end. While I've had ideas for new content, thought about ways that I could bring things back and give the blog a refresh, I just thought about how it's time. I love this blog. I'm glad that I created it. But it's time to let it go.
I have some ideas for a next step and I promise that I will let everyone know what that next step will be. But for now, I'll be finishing this semester and beginning summer classes. And, you can still catch me on The Rad Ass Bitches, which will be starting new episodes in April. I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do with the Facebook page, but for now I'll keep sharing geek news and fun memes. I'll give everyone the heads up if that changes.
Catch y'all on the flip side.
