Yes, after a couple months offline, I’ve finally fixed my blog. It’s back for now.
I was not focusing on my blog as much as a real blogger should, anyway—too busy with school and work and the other stuff that seems to take over life away from the internet. (Boo!) I graduated from college 2.0 last month, so at least that’s a weight off my shoulders. My life does not magically seem less busy, though. That was disappointing to discover, since I haven’t played nearly enough video games lately. I want to play Portal 2 (it’s all the rage, and I want to know why!) but I have to finish Epic Mickey and Super Mario Galaxy 2 still. And Ben just fixed the original Xbox this weekend, which means I now have access to games I haven’t played in a long time: Simpsons Road Rage, Tetris Worlds (because I can’t play Tetris ANYWHERE ELSE), and Dance Dance Revolution.
Oh! But Things in Life That Actually Matter, I have those, too. I’ve made strides in cleaning and organizing certain areas of my house, and now I can see portions of my actual office desk. I’m now officially a web marketing consultant (for money!), trying to decide if I like it enough and can be successful enough to go permanently full-time. Lumped in there are goals for certain websites that already exist and some that are in the planning/work phase.
It’s also way past time to update the Geek Test again. Pretty amazing how a year can make so much difference in the content of the test. The Geek Test Facebook fan page is approaching 3,000 fans, which is pretty exciting. And last week, on Geek Pride Day, a Norwegian blogger mentioned his test score and posted some screen shots on his post Geek og Stolt (“Geek and Proud”) which contributed to a 400% spike in traffic for the day. I knew I picked the right country in which to be an exchange student all those years ago! Some of the traffic spike was of course from people who learned about the test from their Facebook friends or were just searching for a way to answer the age old question, “Am I a geek?”
Well, little Johnny, if you have to ask… the answer is probably yes.
In conclusion, there’s a lot for me to do in the near future. This has been awkward for me to write since it’s been a while. I look forward to bringing you more frequent awkwardness this summer. Good day.
(I SAID GOOD DAY.)
