UpKates 2014

I’m in the process of revamping my concept of what I’m going to do with this website. But here are a few things which are going on that you guys might not know about:

  • I’m super-duper preggo (7months) and gleefully waiting the birth of my own, little geek girl this coming May
  • I married British Boy (father of said in-utero geek girl)
  • We’re buying a house
  • I started a new job (as noted in previous blog post) in November
  • Life has been a little cray, to say the least

Some other cool stuff:

  • I’m doing a lot of writing about consumer tech, as opposed to comics — I’ll be posting some links to some of my favorite pieces in the next few days
  • Elliott and I are reviving Keep Your Pants On for the Chicago RedEye - it will be a once per month column, something much more manageable than a weekly
  • I got to speak as an “expert” at The University of Chicago last week - it was stupidly cool!
  • I’m working on a book proposal in my spare time (wtf is that?) called “The Geek Girl’s Guide to Everything”

So a lot going on… going to try to get back to writing here on a daily basis, but no promises. In the meantime, a picture of shirtless David Tennant:

You are quite welcome. 

Up-Kates - why I have been ignoring the Internet

  • In October I left Coderella Consulting to take a job with Chicago based ComboApp. My official title is “PR Writer” and I’m really enjoying working here…
  • British Boy and I are expecting a baby in May.
  • In a little under a month we’re getting married.
  • As work and my personal life is completely cray at the moment, I’m taking a break from pop-culture writing for the foreseeable future.
  • BUT - I’m doing a lot of writing about consumer tech and consumer tech trends for ComboApp. Check out some of my work:
