CONTEST: Win a Doctor Who shirt from Threadless!

You all are fully aware of how much a massive Doctor Who fan I am. I literally waited in line for over 6 hours on two separate occasions mind you for DW related events and to meet the main cast and Steven Moffat (you can read about that here and here). Where’s my (#DWlineCon peeps at?!). That’s some serious obsession right there!  

My Facebook page and Twitter is practically a continuous love letter to Doctor Who. I want to thank all my fellow Whovians for emailing me Tennant LOL cats, tweet-a-thons, Facebook gush-a-thons, sending me Doctor Who episodes that haven’t made their way across the pond yet and just basically existing. No really, I barely have anyone IRL to talk to about Who so I love that I know I can go on Facebook or Twitter and have the best conversations with you all that madman in a box we love so much.

This giveaway is exclusively for my Twitter followers and Facebook fans. Two lucky Whovians will win the very popular shirt design from Threadless Doctor Hoo, depicting all eleven doctors as adorable owls designed by Mallory DyerHow cool is it that Hartnell and Troughton are in black and white?! It’s the little things ya know? A big thanks to Threadless for sponsoring this giveaway!

My 1 Year Blogiversary & Geek Soap Contest!

Girl Gone Geek blog water bottle my friends got me!

Happy Blogiversary to me! 

Girl Gone Geek Blog turns 1-year-old today! Which is about 13 in blog years. I can’t believe it’s already been a year… Actually that’s a lie, it totally felt like a year. I started this blog with no intentions other than to blab about all of the brilliant things I am unashamedly obsessed about, they just so happen to dwell in the geek realm. The fact that it continues to grow and the positive feedback you all give me is something I never anticipated, but it thrills me to bits!

The blog is like an extension of myself, albeit the geekiest parts. One of the aspects of my blog that I hope that comes through is how I try to create a sense of connection with my readers and fans. I think my favorite part is geeking out with you all every day whether it’s on Twitter, Facebook or email. The past two years I was going to graduate school full-time (I just graduated with my Master’s), interned at NYLON Magazine, working part-time and all the while trying to squeeze in something that resembles a social life. But blogging never felt like a chore it was something I loved to do and an escape from all the chaos. Well I guess that’s more than enough mushy bloggy talk for one post.

Now to move along to what you all are really here for, free stuff! To thank you all for being so awesome I’m having a giveaway contest with the talented Lesley Karpiuk of Geek Soap and The Pink Toque.

Lesley makes these insanely cool soaps which are not only geeked out but are “individually handmade from all natural and vegan friendly ingredients.” What’s not to love?! She’s made such exclusives like “Game Cartridge soap, D20 Soap on a Rope, and almost all of the soap themes [she’s] used such as [Doctor Who] and Cthulhu.” These soaps didn’t exist before her, and we are forever grateful. She also knits Cthulhu themed goodies as well which you can find on The Pink Toque.

Thanks to Lesley, Girl Gone Geek is having not one but three winners! The soaps being given away are the “Clean of Kong” which are the barrels from the Donkey Kong video game, the NES “8-Bit Game Cartridge” and the “Soapstone” aka Hearthstone from World of Warcraft.

HOW TO WIN:

  • The 3 winners will be chosen on Friday, June 3rd,  I will pick the three winners that have the best answers to the question below
  • Answer the Contest Question below in the comments section of this post
    • Question: How would you use one of the geek soaps if you won?
    • Example: I would use the Donkey Kong soap to… *insert something witty here*.

Kodama Decal Giveaway and 200th Post on Girl Gone Geek Blog!

This is the 200th post on Girl Gone Geek Blog!

If you are wondering why I’m “celebrating” post 200 and not post 100 it’s because I blogged right on by post 100 without noticing, typical me!  I started Girl Gone Geek Blog (GGGB) May 27th of this year.  What began as a hobby to share my little obsessions with the citizens of The Interwebs has turned into so much more than I had imagined!

While searching for awesome geekery to blog about I discovered so many amazing blogs, websites which you should also check out, most of my favorites are on my Blog Roll on the left of the site.  Despite how cliché it sounds, the best part of GGGB was getting the chance to “meet” all of you who read my blog on a regular and send me such positive responses on here. And how could I forget all of my wonderful geeky/gamer/otakus/fangirl/fanboy twitter friends!

Here’s a few of my favorite posts thus far (it may seem like a lot but it’s out of 200!):
