Changes to the Geek Mamas Blog in 2020

I've made a lot of little changes to the Geek Mamas blog the past month, from little things like adding a blue background, to big things like a total SEO overhaul. For the most part, probably nobody has even noticed the little tweaks. It's something I like to keep track of so I know how … Continue reading Changes to the Geek Mamas Blog in 2020

I Got a Crash Course in Nofollow, Noopener and Noreferrer

If you have a blog that links anywhere and care about your SEO and ranking,  you need to be familiar with the terms nofollow, noopener and noreferrer, and how to use them. I'm no expert- I really just recently learned how they all work, and only because a recent WordPress update forced me to pay … Continue reading I Got a Crash Course in Nofollow, Noopener and Noreferrer

Welcome to 2020! Now Get Back to Work

I'm finally home from all my Christmas travels and getting the ball rolling again on all the blog stuff.

Going On Christmas Break, Goodbye 2019

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I think this will be my last post for 2019, unless I feel like I absolutely have to write something.

Or just be able to … Continue reading Going On Christmas Break, Goodbye 2019

The Geeky Family Gift Guide that Disappeared

I just logged on to update this post and put a few finishing touches on my Geeky Family Gift Guide, and IT'S ALL GONE. I have no idea what happened. I suspect it was because I was bouncing from one window to the next and accidentally saved an early draft version. I had tons of … Continue reading The Geeky Family Gift Guide that Disappeared

Happy Thanksgiving!

The holidays are officially here and with it I'll be taking some blogging breaks. Unless of course the holidays drive me crazy and I feel the need to soothe myself by writing. I have a few posts in the works, including a Geeky Holiday Gift Guide and maybe a new Keane Interest wrap-up post. But … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!

Blogging and Social: Choosing Quality Over Quantity

I haven't been blogging and posting as much as lately. I've just been busy with life and not feeling the urge to share every detail. Unfortunately it seems in the world of social media, overshare is the norm and an expected part of being an "influencer" even if I am reluctant to call myself that. … Continue reading Blogging and Social: Choosing Quality Over Quantity

Thrown Off Track by My Birthday

I was all caught up and chugging along with blog posts in a timely manner, and then my birthday crept up on me, along with a trip to see my mom and a stop at LEGOLAND and now here we are a week later with no new posts and a giant to-do list. Hard to … Continue reading Thrown Off Track by My Birthday

GeekMamas.com Finally Has a Real Newsletter

After three years of just using the built-in WordPress sign-up form, I finally sat down and created a MailChimp account and newsletter so I could send out neatly arranged summaries of everything that's going on over here at GeekMamas.com. Unlike the WordPress one, this won't just send every blog post, but will be a curated list … Continue reading GeekMamas.com Finally Has a Real Newsletter
