I blog to keep track of things I've learnt, to connect with friends, to make new friends, and to share solutions to problems I've had- both online and in 'real life'.
It tends to vary! I often think I should have multiple blogs, but after years of doing that, I've brought it all back into one. I blog about marriage, tech bits, creative things I've done (mostly online), events I've attended, photos I've edited... anything that interests me really!
I blog text + photo in short, 'regular' posts. I have occasionally dabbled in videos- if they're interesting/relevant- mostly ones I've made myself.
I became a girl geek blogger way back in 2005. That may not seem that long ago to some, but considering I am only 22 this year, it's a considerable chunk of my independent life. I started blogging just about general things- friends, parties, life etc. and started blogging more about 'tech' things when I installed my first linux OS- Ubuntu. I guess my geek blogging rose out of a desire to help people with issues they might have when they set up a linux distro for the first time. Over time my focus has changed- from Linux to teaching (I have a Bachelor of Learning Management), to eLearning. My thoughts are always on how I can help people learn new things, and to share things with other people.
