The blogger tag xx

Hello my little geeks!

I was just catching up on some reading of my friends blogs and Sincerely Serena did the blogger tag linked here and I figured since I am a blogger (not professional but I count myself as that as if you think of nothing but blogging and writing from the moment you wake up to when you go to sleep and love it with a passion then your a blogger) and I have had this blog since November 28th 2014 which is almost three years, crazy, then I feel it's only right I should do the blogger tag! I haven't been tagged by anyone but I thought it would be fun, so here is my answers to the blogger tag:

1. How long have you been blogging and why did you start? 

As I said above, I started my blog on 28th November 2014 which is now close to three years ago. 
I started blogging because I wanted a space of my own where I could be creative and could share my stories and baking and anything else I just needed a creative space where I could be just me.

2. Is this current blog your first blog? 

Yes this is the same blog, I have thought about making another over the years but I just love my little blog too much to ever make another.

3. What would you categorize your blog as?

This is hard, and to be honest I don't think I can categorize my blog as I have done so much over the years that I don't fit into a category, I have done photography, short stories, baking recipes, get ready with me lifestyle based things, diary blog posts, thoughts and ramblings, I have done so much that I can't put my blog in a category my blog is it's own kind of unique special original category just like me.

4. Is your blog still the same kind of blog as when you started?

Yes and No. Worst answer ever I know, let me explain, well yes as I am still GeekyGirlOnline and I like writing some of the same things that I did when I started and I basically the same but no as I think change is sometimes good as I like changing the design of blog every now and then and trying to write new types of blog posts. I hope that explains my worst answer ever.

5. Top 3 things about being a blogger

being able to have my own creative space to write what I wish.

The control to be creative at my own will.

A place where I can write and share and store memories and be able to look back at old posts when I fell nostalgic

6. Worst 3 things about being a blogger

explaining to friends and family and people who don't understand what a blog is, what a blog actually is,
when you have explained to them what a blog is they then think your abit odd and weird.

trying to write in noisy house as you still live with your parents.

7.  What is your favourite type of post to write?

It's between three:

Baking recipes as I have loved baking since I was little and I love creating amazing delicious treats and letting my friends and family help me eat those delicious treats and telling me what a brillaint baker I am.

Life updates/diary posts as I love telling you what I am up to and telling you fun things about what I get up to in my life.

short stories as I have loved writing short stories ever since I could write and now I have my little blog to share them so you can all read them.

8. Whats the hardest post you have ever written and published? 

Hardest post I have actually published was my anxiety advice as That was really hard for me to talk about especially since it was my first ever blog post so I was not only extremely anxious about revealing my anxiety secrets and talking about something very personal to me but also because I was uploading my first ever blog post and I didn't know if people would like my blog or if people would be mean but luckily everyone was very nice.

My other very hard blog post is my dyslexia blog post which I haven't published yet as I am still in the writing progress but that is extremely hard as I am talking about my dyslexia and things I don't normally like to talk about and things I have only revealed to my family and my best friends as they were upsetting and stressful and dyslexia is very tricky. Not just hard because it's very personal but also as I am writing alot of facts so I want get get all the facts right as well.
I haven't published this yet but when it's written I will upload it so you can read all about my dyslexia.

Thats the tag I now tag :

My best friend Olivia who's blog is GreenBee please go check her blog out and show your support as she is a very good writer and such an amazing human being!
She is pretty new to the blogging world and it might be a fun post for her, she is very busy at the moment but when she gets a chance I will remind her and it will be up on her blog hopefully.

dont forget to leave any book recommendations in the comments as I am always looking for new thing to read :)

random question of the day if you had one super power what would it be and why? tell me in the comments it will be fun :) I would have the power to read minds as I would love what everyone is thinking.
leave your answer in the comments :)

Thank you for reading

Love you all

See you next week

Things that make me happy xx

Hello my little geeks! 

Firstly, I should apologize that I haven't written anything in months, they're a few reasons to this: 

-I have been pretty busy with college and family things, so that's held up alot of my time but college is over and the family stuff is all okay now and I would rather not talk about family related stuff on my blog, 
- my anxiety has not been great which has stopped me from writing alot of the time however I am dealing with it and my anxiety will not stop me writing again, hopefully. 
-A month or two ago, I took some time away from the internet, I took a few weeks off blogging and  for a little while and even took a few days off youtube and social media (I know I shocked myself at this thought too) which was mainly because coursework and family stuff anyway after this I have been struggling with creators/writers block. This has meant I have struggled to come up with blog post ideas or when I did I would write some and never finish it because I put too much pressure on myself to make everything perfect but the truth is not everything I needed to remind myself that not everything I post online is going to be perfect and as long as I have fun with what I create and I am proud then thats okay. Anyway well done if you made it this far I guess that could have been a blog post in itself but I just needed to apologize and explain why I vanished off the internet and to let you all know I haven't quit blogging and I wont as I am back now for good! 

anyway to the actual blog post, for today I thought it would be fun if I wrote about some things me very happy, so here is a list of alots of things that make me happy! 

1. Reading

I have been such a book worm for years and I used to actually hate reading when I was little probably because I struggle and at that time I had no idea dyslexia was a thing let alone I had it but now I know and have learnt to love it and now I don't know what I would do if I didn't have books. Weird how things change.

2. Best friends

These are my two best friends. The top one is my best friends Olivia. (I am on the horse (who is called Jess) Olivia is stood next to me) The bottom picture is my other best friend Ella.
Honestly I don't know what I would do without these two, The things they have both helped me through so much and they are the greatest humans ever and the most amazing best friends I could ever ask for, I don't know how I would have been able to cope with anything from my anxiety to everyday life without these too and I don't know how I can ever thank them so I would put them on my blog as they both make me very happy and make me smile even on dark days. thank you I love you both lots!

3. Animals

I have always loved animals but since I was little but since I started horse riding the obsession has gone much more then that. I am vegetarian so I dont want to eat animals, and I just love animals specially horse like this one below Jess who I don't own but I ride as she is my favourite she quite strong but very gentle and I call her my big donkey. I also love my dog called Millie who is my world, she is 12 and 1/2 and is getting old but she has the personilaty of a puppy and I just love her to pieces and her and Jess make me very very happy.

4. Youtube

The hours I spend and love binge watching youtube. some of my favourite people to watch are:
-carrie hope fletcher
-my cupcake addiciton
-the frey life
-the dale tribe

5. blogging and writing

obviously I had to include this as I do love to write stories and blog posts and just whatever I feel like writing.

6. Disney

I have loved disney ever since I watched The Little Mermaid on VHS (video tape gosh I am old haha) when I was just two years old. I will always love disney!
my favourite films:

The little Mermaid
The lion King
beauty and the beast

7. Being creative

I love the fact I am a very creative person with no limit to my imagination, I don't know what I would do if I wasn't creative. photography, art,creative writing, are all things that make me very happy. I don't think I would be myself without imagination and creativity.


I have always loved musical theatre. here are my favourites

-les miserable
-chitty chitty bang bang

I am hoping The Adams Family Musical joins this list I am sure it will but I haven't seen it I am going in September as my parents bought me tickets for my birthday and I can't wait especially because Carrie Hope Fletcher is Wednesday Adams and I just love her she is my biggest inspiration!

Those are some things that make me very happy.

Tell me in the comments what are some things that make you happy?

Love you all lots,

See you soon
