Auld Lang Syne and all that
I'm sorry that I'm getting this one of these retrospective posts out now, but I did want to take an opportunity to thank everyone for making 2011 such an amazing year. I have met so many fantastic people through the blogging community, on Twitter, and will hopefully be meeting some of you in person this year. 2011 was a great year of growth for Kentucky Geek Girl. I created the Facebook page which has almost 200 fans, which is just amazing and I really do appreciate you all so much.
I do have a confession to make. I became so focused on creating content, getting out news and what not, that I lost sight of why I created the site in the first place. This was supposed to be my place on the web to talk about my specific interests in gaming and popular culture. In some ways, I feel like I failed the intent of why I began to put more effort into blogging, and for that I am sorry. I have also not written anymore of "Your Friendly Local ___ Shop." I look forward to getting out more in the Lexington community in 2012. In fact, I hope to branch out to any other places that strike my fancy, not just comics or gaming. Definitely look for that in the coming months.
I also want to take a specific look at some of the games that we play and the people who create them or even enjoy them as much as I do. Jasmine Hruschak, better known as IRLJasmine, was gracious enough to allow me to interview her and I look forward to sharing what she has to say about gaming in my first Gamer Spotlight. Look for that soon!
I'm also going to (hopefully) be attending several conventions in Kentucky this year. Unfortunately, my work and school schedules will not permit me to travel outside of the state, but next year I hope to attend GenCon, Dragon*Con, and Origins (at least!) and see many more of you awesome folks. If you ever pass through Kentucky, be sure to give me a holler!
I have some blogging resolutions that I definitely want to keep and I'm going to try and write even though I do have school and work. Thank you for reading and I hope to bring even more awesome things to the table this year and beyond. It means a lot to get feedback so if there's something you'd like to see or something you're not that fond of, just let me know. I really look forward to the great things that 2012 will bring.
