So, I didn’t say anything before, mostly because I didn’t want to get anyones hopes up, but I had applied to be a part of the Blogher network …needless to say, I was not accepted. Unfortunately, due to the (I’m certain very overwhelming) amount of interest they get, they couldn’t give individualized feedback as to why I wasn’t accepted. I just didn’t fit what they’re looking for.
Here’s why I’ve decided I didn’t fit:
- Lately, I don’t post consistently. Not often enough. In fact, since I posted every day in September, I’ve managed to churn out…maybe a post a week. Maybe.
- Lately, I don’t post enough QUALITY work. I’m not saying that what I DO post is rubbish, I just mean I should have more of what this blog is meant to be — more geeky related crafts!!
With that said, I realise that the overwhelming stress of the holidays, plus life in general, has just beat me down. 🙁 So, while I intend to continue posting, for the rest of this month don’t expect to see stars!! I’m working very hard on a nice, big reboot for CheekyGeeks. I’ll be doing loads of crafts that you’ll get to read about starting in February, & I’m earnestly going to try hard to get 1-2 crafty posts up per week in addition to the Treasury Tuesdays & what-nots that I already post. Ultimately, my goal is: One post per weekday (so Monday through Friday.)
Freebie Friday comes early!
On another note, but an awesome note: I just started watching SHERLOCK on Netflix. OMGFANGIRLSQUEAL! Seriously, guys, I am obsessed with Benedict Cumberbatch. He is…omg. Yes. I’ve been having dreams where I get to solve crimes with Sherlock all week, folks. No joke. Not to mention, as a wee one I just adored the Sherlock stories, so seeing the neat little modernised twists has been just SO much fun!! Now, I don’t want to leave y’all wishing you had some Sherlock of your own, so I created a pretty awesome Facebook banner via microsoft word & ms paint (I’m not at home…so forgive the…quality job here) that I’m down with sharing with y’all!! Yay, Freebie Friday has come early!! Feel free to click the pic>right click the image when it opens>save as, then head on over to your facebook profile & load it as your own banner. Then, dazzle yourself & friends with the glory of delicious hair & amazing English cheekbones! [le sigh]
Mmm…I hope you all enjoy that banner, there! xD
again, remember, I did this using the most-impressive combo of Microsoft Word & Microsoft Paint, so it is pretty badly done. But it works. (I’ll make a prettier one later, once I’m home!)
What awesome shows are y’all watching?
