Hey guys! Welcome back. Today I wanted to touch base on a few things and kind of share with you everything that has been going on. For the past several weeks there have been a lot of changes here at Love, Geeky Girl. I have started things, ended things, restarted things. Things have just been changing so much and I wanted to sit down and take the time to explain that to you all. There are so many things happening and I feel the need to kind of clear the air and give you guys a better understanding of exactly what is happening around here.
So as you all probably know I have blog posts going out everyday. This is something that I really want to do and that I enjoy doing. I love writing and creating content that you guys enjoy and get something out of. Blogging is something that I started just for me, but when you all tell me that you love my content and that it really helps you, it just motivates me to keep doing it and keep writing about things that you all love. And that is such an amazing thing that I am so grateful for. But over the past few weeks I have changed and updated a lot. I have made a new schedule, shared new projects, and started implementing the feedback I get from other people. So in order for this post to make sense and there to be some kind of structure, I am basically going to be covering four topics and explaining everything in those four topics.
The first topic is exactly what is going on.
So I wanted to give you a run down of everything that is happening and share links so you can see everything in one place. This way you don’t have to go back and find posts where I talk about these things unless you want to. Hopefully this will kind of get everyone on the same page and you guys can know exactly where everything is.
The first is obviously the blog. This is where the most content is. There is a new post everyday at 8:00 a.m. CST. This is nothing new and nothing that will be changing anytime soon. I will post new content everyday.
Next is the YouTube Channel. Last week I shared with you that I am changing up my YouTube Channel. I originally started it as a beauty channel, but I have recently made some changes in that regard. I will still be doing beauty videos every Saturday (and maybe on Sunday). But Tuesday and Thursday will be videos with content that you see here. I am doing this because I get so many requests and so many people asking me to write about topics and I also have a lot of ideas of my own. I want to give you as much as I can without overloading one platform. So I have decided to start sharing content like this on my YouTube Channel. And this will start this Tuesday, August 20th.
The next thing is Coffee With Jesus. I started this as a Virtual Bible Study, and I intend to continue it as soon as I get all of my ducks in a row. This is a community for us to come together and talk about the Bible, pray together, and grow in our faith. So many people have asked for more religious content but I fear doing it too much on my blog because I know that not everyone wants that. So I thought that this was a good place to do that and hopefully we can grow and have more people join.
And finally we have Lights And Lashes. This is an exclusive community for those who want to connect personally with me, be a part in the actual content creation, and be a part of a group who helps build confidence and personal growth. There are exclusive blog posts and live videos that aren’t found anywhere else or come out before others see them. It’s a great way to help decide what content I put on the blog and YouTube Channel and connect with other people.
So that is everything going on right now. This is everything that you can be a part of and I hope you will want to be a part of. All of these are ways to get new content whenever you want and each is unique in it’s own way.
Why have things been changing up so much lately?
The reason things have been changing up so much lately is because I really love what I do. And I know that may sound strange, but let me explain. I love the content that I create. I love that it helps you and benefits you. I am extremely connected to the content and to all of you. So I wanted to find a way to give you more content without overloading you with blog posts. So I tried and tested different mediums before deciding on what I did. It is something that I have been working on for a while and I wanted to get everything started before classes start.
So I kind of pushed everything out at once and it was a bit overwhelming. But hopefully this helps you kind of understand and makes things more clear. This is everything that is going on and what we are working towards. I always want to be putting out the best content that I can for you guys, so it is important for me to find platforms to do that. These past few weeks have had a lot going on, but we are pushing through.
How I am pushing through this weird time of fear and anxiety.
I opened up several times about the fear and anxiety I have. I have shared my mental health journey and everything that is going on. And honestly with everything changing and me starting new projects, the anxiety has increased a lot. I go through periods of extreme depression where I don’t even want to get out of bed. And so I wanted to address that here because it does have a lot to do with everything you are seeing.
The way I am working through all the fear and anxiety is showing up for myself. I do get really worried and depressed, but I get up anyway. I do what I need to do and I just bring the fear and anxiety and depression with me. Because on the days when I am completely overwhelmed or I am so depressed that I don’t want to get out of bed, those are the days that I have the most to prove. So I show up and I work through it one day at a time. When I started my blog I had a lot of fears, but I did it anyway. And it’s worked out pretty great. So I just go with the mindset that I have things to do and people depending on me. And I show up because that’s the best thing for me to do.
What are my hopes for the future?
I wanted to address this in this post because it’s a question that I ask myself all the time. It’s something that I truly think about at least once a day. And my hopes for the future is that I can continue to do what I love and continue to grow in the direction that I am going. I grow everyday and I am so grateful that you guys help me grow. None of this would be possible without all of you supporting me, so I really appreciate it.
In terms of what I am doing once I graduate, I know where I am moving, I know what my job will be, and I know everything that the next chapter of my life will be. I am not sharing it with anyone just yet because it’s just not the time. However, I have peace knowing that I will have a place to live and a job that will allow me to move forward on this journey.
I hope this post helps you understand more of what is happening. It was important for me to share it not only to clear things up for you, but to clear things up for me as well. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I know it’s long, but hopefully you have a better idea of what has been going on. I appreciate your unending love and support. I’ll see you in the next one!
