Blog is about Synths, cats, music, movies and life. That’s my tagline. It’s about artists helping other artists, regardless of medium. I’ll find a way for you to contribute if you’re interested. It’s about my learning process, gear reviews, and random musings. I have one contributor who’s big on horror movie reviews. Her name is Eve.
A genuine lack of musicians in my area inspired me to start my blog. I had no one to work with or share what I’d written, so I said the hell with it and bought a domain. Since then, I’ve been hunting down fellow musicians for interviews and their stories. Many are happy for the exposure.
As my contributor puts it, it’s mutually beneficial and we get to remain an ‘underground’ and ‘cutting edge’ site. Also, I’m inspired by my love of synths. As a Musician with a bum right arm, these doo-dads keep me going. I can keep writing without the pain drumming was causing me.
I started my blog in May 2016, whilst studying for my A levels, with the intention of creating a small space to share my thoughts with the world. I named it ‘My Mind Speaks Aloud’ because I was always known as ‘quiet’, despite the fact that my mind is always extremely loud. Creating this blog was a way of proving that I do have a voice and learning to believe in that voice. It taught me how to open up to others and understand and accept myself as a person.
Now, in my second year of studying English Literature with Creative Writing at university, my blog has become a timeline of my thoughts and progression into adulthood. I’ve struggled a lot with social anxiety over the past few years so my blog has been really important in my journey to grow my self-confidence.
On my blog you can find:
Reviews on books, music and films
Creative Writing (poetry, flash fiction, etc.)
Deeper thoughts I have about the world and humanity
Geek Mamas Blog is about my life as a first time mom, a costume making crafty geek, and everything that comes with that. My blog posts are often personal and humorous, mixed in with product reviews and other random things. I have a degree in journalism and really wanted to start writing again. Making the move to stay-at-home-mom pushed me to write…or go crazy. It’s a great outlet when you are dealing with the insanity a baby (and now toddler) brings into your life.
