Happy 2nd Birthday Geek Gets Glam!

I cannot believe that two years ago on the 1st of June, I wrote my very first blog post on Geek Gets Glam. The blog, and myself, has changed quite a lot over the past two years and I thought I'd share with you some of my old blog designs (Some of them are awful and yes I did make some on paint)!


I'll also be announcing some rather exciting birthday news regarding some amazing giveaways at the end of the post so keep your eyes peeled ;)



Geek Gets Glam is not my first blog. I had been blogging and doing YouTube videos for a few years now but I wanted to create something a bit more 'me'. I didn't feel like I was your typical beauty blogger so I thought I'd put my own spin on things. As a self-confessed geek, it was only right to incorporate that into my blog and Geek Goes Glam was born. My very first post was on a Barry M Gelly nail polish - you can read it here (PS It is awful). Also I chanegd the name to 'Geek Gets Glam'. It sounds much better than 'Geek Goes Glam'!





I went through a long phase of never being able to get my blog design how I liked it. I wanted colour but I wanted it to be sleek. I wanted my personality but I didn't want to alienate readers. I kinda lost focus on my blog posts and started being obsessed with the design. I got through many headers in this time!


My blog wasn't really going anywhere and I had to remind myself why I started blogging in the first place - it's because I love to write. I went back to writing thoughtful blog posts and taking time and care when writing. I paid for a blog design and logo, which  I stuck with for quite a while. I loved my new layout.

Still not quite happy with my blog, I paid for a brand new fresh design and recreated my own logo with my new computer design skills. It's basic but I love it and it's the website you see now. I don't write that many beauty posts now and I've definitely gravitated more towards the geek side of things!

So, what's next for GGG?  Well I am loving writing lifestyle posts so I will stick with that. I really want to do more geek themed posts so expect to see those cropping up every so often. I'm also desperate to kick-start my YouTube again - I keep saying I will but then lose the nerve to do it!

And the part you've all been waiting for - my birthday giveaway! Or should I say, giveaways. Yes, you read correctly. In celebration of my little blog turning two years old, I'll be doing two giveaways. The first giveaway will be going live later this week, but I will put that in a separate blog post. Each giveaway will have it's own post as they will have different rules and different ways to enter so you won't miss any of the action :)

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has ever read anything on my blog. I'm amazed at how many people do come along and have a read and leave a comment on my writing :) And now, let's party (Good luck on my giveaways)!!

  1. I remember when I first started blogging, I would change my blog colors and layout with every new blog I came across. Everyone just had really nice blogs so I'd see new things I wanted to add everyday. I totally understand the design dilemma..I'm a colorful person but displaying the entire neon rainbow throughout my blog would just overwhelm readers haha. Happy birthday to your blog! xx
