And while I decided to continue on with this blog rather than to start all over again, I do feel that there is a lot of work to do! The Not So Closet Geek blog needs to be updated.
My first step was dropping my high school alter-ego: bella aire. I still like the name, but I no longer feel the need to hide behind a pseudonym anymore. I'm a woman now. And I already have a woman's name: Diana. It's time to use it.
The next steps are getting a new name and updating the blog's background. 'Not So Closet Geeks' was a fun name when I was in high school, when I was proud of standing out a little, for being passionate about something. I needed that label.
But now I'm in college. A good college where everyone stands out a little and is passionate about something. Everyone is a geek. There is no closet to hide in here, so not being a closet geek is common. It no longer needs to be stated.
I've been tossing around some ideas, and I've landed on a new name that I'm really excited about. And I've found a few templates that I really love and will do my new blog title justice.
But I don't want the Not So Closet Geek blog to be forgotten. So I'm thinking of doing a good old-fashioned festival. The likes of which haven't been seen since March of 2009, when I hosted Geek Fest, "A CELEBRATION FOR ALL THE SELF-PROCLAIMED GEEKS OUT THERE".
Geek Fest was about celebrating being a geek. My upcoming festival will not only be a celebration for geeks, it will also be about coming-of-age, transitions, and growing up.
