High 5 for Geekery (& Friday too!)

Happy Friday y'all!

This has been a HUGE week for Exquisitely Geek! I mean HUGE!!!

In case you missed Wednesday's Blog we're expanding. Well, I'm not expanding...but Seven of Nine is and that means EG is by amazingly lucky default. You guys, I was a mess. I found out just a couple minutes before the blog went live and started crying, in the middle of an educators conference. All I could say is "She's having a baby. She's having a baby." I am sure I looked like and idiot, but my heart swelled to five sizes larger than the Grinch's two sizes too big heart. I mean...I can't even.

The other amazing thing that has happened this week is that we have hit 5,000 views on the blog.  WHAT!?! Yeah, I mean what can I even say to think all of the loyal EG readers!?! This has been such a fulfilling project for Seven of Nine as well as myself. I can't even begin to really put into words what we feel about our readers, FB "likers", Tumblr, Twitter, and Pinterest "followers."

Our goal has always been to provide you guys with quality content to itch that "nerd nerve" that we all seem to share and we will continue to do that!!! I just wanted to take this chance to say THANK YOU!!!

In honor of our five thousandth hit I thought we would make a High 5 for you guys of EG blogs you should check out if you missed them. Some of these go back to February, but they are all great reads and amazingly fun to revisit!



1) Muggle Love



This was the first blog every posted on Exquisitely Geek. The best part of the whole thing is that Seven of Nine and I had the blog up and running two days from conception to push. It was pretty amazing. This is always one of my favorites because it signifies the start of it all and there are a TON of gifs in it!

2) Jenny Flint...We're Going to Need the Swords 



This CosPlay Wednesday blog has always been one of my favorites. I love the idea of a grouping of characters and I think Seven of Nine pulled off an excellent "How-To" approach to her explanation. Plus, let's be honest, I love anything Doctor Who!

3) 17 Things for My Little Man to Know



The best explanation of this blog is the opening paragraph:

'"I am a Mom. First and foremost. Every thought of my day is in some way tied to my son. He and I have been a team since the moment he was born and as I wander through my day I find myself thinking "I need to mention that to Treyson." Inevitably dinner, bath time, and everyday life gets in the way so today I compile the list..."

4) Guardians of the Galaxy Crash Course 



I actually directed someone to this blog this week. We had been watching television and she kept seeing the GotG Trailer and finally just belted out "What is this anyway!?! I mean, what is it about?" I used the opportunity to boost our blog hits by at least one and sent her Seven of Nine's Crash Course. I have heard many people say this was one of their favorite posts. I had read a few of the comics so I had the originating ideas behind the film, but the trailers for the movie are very "campy" if I can use that term loosely so many people are confused about the film's plot line. It's gonna be great...Plus it has "Ripped Chris Pratt" in it. t,

5) High 5! Exquisitely Geek gets Personal! & High 5: Summer Series Continues On

This series of questions was awesome to answer with my counterpart. What you saw lasted about 15 minutes total, but we video conferenced for over two hours. When we were finished I found Treyson and The Ninja napping due to boredom and silence. This post is great to refer to if you feel like you just need t get to know us better. I am also thinking about each of us doing a FAQ or Question and Answer Blog. Would you guys like to see that?



Well, once again Happy Friday. It will be a very happy Friday for me. I am still in D.C. this morning but we will fly home this evening. I can't wait to get back home to my family. I miss Treyson terribly. Thankfully he has been texting me quite a bit, but it just isn't quite the same. I shall check back in with you guys on Wednesday, but until then...stay exceptionally chic & exquisitely geek!
