2009 is here

Happy New Year!

Well Christmas and New Year are now over, our tree will be coming down tomorrow and we have a fresh year ahead to enjoy.

After months of brainstorming, I’ve finally figured out what I’m going to do with my Geek Mum blog.  I’d kind of abandoned it as I was so burnt out from dealing with massive IT projects and supporting 300 odd people on my own.  I literally couldn’t imagine ever thinking IT was fun again.

But a year later nearly, I find myself reading technical blogs again and really enjoying them.  So later this month I’ll be relaunching it and I hope you’ll all enjoy it. My focus is going to be technology and how it can make women’s lives easier and simpler.  As well as passing on all the tips and tricks I’ve learnt over the last 15 years of messing about with PC’s and Mac’s, blogging, digital scrapbooking and lots of other fun things you can do with a computer, mobile phones and the internet.

I’ve found there aren’t many ‘everywoman’ blogs about technology, which is amazing considering the biggest users of the internet in the UK are women between the ages of 25 and 40!

I’ll still be blogging here about home, family and all my other favourite things, but I thought my tech interest deserved it’s own home.

But Happy New Year to you all and I hope 2009 brings you everything you want

  3. I think that’s a fabulous idea!! I’m getting more involved with techy projects…sort of project managing a lot of things that are “tech heavy” at work…so l’d appreciate learning anything that could possibly help me out. (Like when I think something sounds like it would be an easy web update…but then “tech person” tells me it will take two weeks…I want to be able to say, “Um…don’t think so!” and be able to back myself up. 🙂

    A very, VERY happy, healthy and prosperous new year to you! I am so happy to have met you. I look forward to following you (not in a stalker way 🙂 and your new ventures in 2009.

    Right off to work on Geek Mum as soon as I’ve bought more school shoes for Miss Lily, she’s suddenly shot up again.

  5. What a fabulous idea to relaunch your tech blog—it’s just what I think is needed in the blog world! I’m a total dunce when it comes to tech stuff. I always have to get my husband to do my troubleshooting…

    Hope you had a lovely new year’s day!
