Critical Hit! – The Perks of being a Dungeon Master

One of my new self-imposed goals for 2019 is to write more about the nerdy/geeky stuff that I enjoy! Things like D’n’D (aka Dungeons and Dragons), which I wrote a post about last year. It’s totally changed my life! My new series, Critical Hit! is going to be all about DnD! To kick it all off I thought I’d interview the person who is my DnD Dungeon Master! (He’s the brains of the outfit.)

Major Adulting: My Blogging A-Z of 2018 (Wow, what a year!)

People often say “Oh wow, this year has flown. I can’t believe it’s almost over.” But for me, this feels like the longest year in existence. It’s been an absolute roller-coaster of a year, where I’ve gone through minor breakdowns, major breakthroughs, had some self-doubt, learnt self-love, sought out new things and cherished some of the old.

I feel like (partly down to blogging) this has been my richest year yet – one with many happy memories and some not so good, but ultimately I’ve come out of it a different person. So here is my A-Z of 2018. I hope you take the time to read it, because seriously, it’s been a wild ride.

Blogging Bloopers: When Photo-Shoots go Wrong!

One thing which people might not realise about blogging is the importance of the pictures! I am usually very… scruffy. I rarely dress up for anything unless there’s a photo-shoot involved because I am super lazy, but sometimes even when I am dressed to the nines… I have to battle with my EPIC awkwardness. I feel bad for any person who has ever tried to get a good photo of me. They must have the patience of saints, because for every good picture there about 10 where I am awkward as hell.

12 Gifts of Christmas – The Best Nerdy Gifts from Coventry Local Businesses and Beyond*

For me, Christmas isn’t about “hauls”… It’s about giving back, and trying to spread a little joy! So for my Christmas countdown I’ve decided to promote some of my favourite Coventry local businesses and beyond in my new Geeky Christmas Countdown!

These are people who I genuinely want to affiliate myself with and endorse fully. They are brands I love, local and distant, that I have worked with before, I know the owners of, or I just feel deserve your time! I decided to write my shortlist of 12 Nerdy Gifts for Geeks on the countdown to Christmas.
