All Good Things Must Come To An End

Can you believe it's been eight years since this blog was created? I started this website as a hobby in my PR class as a way to help develop my writing and express my passions in content. Originally, my writing was sub-par, had glaring errors in it, and I covered a lot of broad topics from daily life to news. The progression naturally turned to my geek interests, like TV, movies, gaming, and other highlights in nerdom/geekdom. As I grew in life, so did this blog.

September 2018 marks eight years since when this blog originally launched as The Unwritten Journal. Even the name focused on being more of a personal blog that covered my daily life and interests. Four years after that launch, I rebranded the site to become City Boy Geekiness, and the content became more streamlined to cover geek topics. A year after that rebranding, my writing passion expanded beyond blogging into freelance writing and journalism. Though, now life has reached to this moment.

For the last several months, I've been focusing a lot on my priorities and taking a bigger interest in my well-being. Yoga, meditation, and organization have helped to balance things out; it's also pushed me to realign and focus on my goals in life. I'm a determined and ambitious type of person - I love keeping busy and signing up for new opportunities/experiences. Arguably, this has been both a blessing and a curse because I get to develop my skills and passions, but I also take on too much as an active person. If you head into the archived posts timeline, you can see when the lack of blog posts began.

As much as I love writing on this blog, other priorities came up that felt more closely attuned to where I was in life. The blog has tried to stay in the loop, but it's come to the point that I need to admit the truth: City Boy Geekiness, as an active viable blog, needs to end.

It's been a great eight years posting along with you, but my focus mainly is going to be elsewhere in the journalism world. I'll update this site with some new page links, and there might be an occasional post or two in the future. But, this is my metaphorical goodbye message.

Keep in touch with me on any of my social channels (links are above)! Also, follow along with my contributor/staff writer posts. Let's stay geeky together, and don't forget to be geeky always. :)
