Welcome all Mamas (and Dads too!), geeky or not, we are all in this crazy parenting thing together. And now that you have a little one, I’m betting you at least get your share of geekiness by association since kids love superheroes, sci-fi and fantasy.
When I was pregnant, I spent a lot of time reading parent blogs and shopping for kid stuff. I ran across tons of “My Dad’s a Geek” onesies and other dad related geek paraphernalia. I started to feel a little left out. I’m the geek in the family! So that’s why I named the blog Geek Mamas. And now that we have a son, I’m looking forward to introducing him to Star Wars, science museums, reading Harry Potter and all the things I love.
I blogged throughout my entire pregnancy and really enjoyed it. Once the baby was born, I wanted to create a new blog that included all the things I was looking for in a parent site. Something that covered the fun stuff skewed toward my interests. So that’s why I created GeekMamas.com. Once I started writing regularly, Mom Life took center stage and I realized I was going in a more general direction of “mom stuff with a dash of geek.”
So after five years of blogging about toddlerhood and struggling with the SAHMlife, I’m ready to get this blog back on track and put the focus more on Geek Culture, with a dash of Mom Life. The mom blog stuff is all still here, from my very first post, and I’ll continue to add to it. You can find my personal stories under the Mom Life tab. But I’ll also be expanding the geek culture categories and doing more cosplay tutorials. And I hope to get more people and guest bloggers involved as well!
