UrbanisedGeek Update

Hey, guys!

Welcome back to the new-look blog! I have decided I definitely need to post more reviews, but that it was also time for a fancy overhaul too.

2016 has been one hell of a year and I am sure I am not the only one who feels that way. I took a break for a while because my review pile was reaching ridiculous levels and I was getting some serious guilt over not getting to everything. I just wanted to step away from the blog for a while and just read books for the sake of enjoyment.

But, I have realised the need for dedicated reviewers, especially in South Africa! Our blogging community is growing steadily, but I am not helping anyone by stepping away indefinitely.

So I am back!

Next year, I plan to have some new features on the blog:

  • GeekEats - where I will feature awesome places to eat and drink in and around Jozi.

  • GeekMeets - where I will chat about awesome events and venues that will especially cater to the geeky crowd.

  • GeekBeats - a feature where I will showcase local and international music.
Obviously, I will keep on reviewing books and interviewing authors where possible. But it's all about getting some great new content on the blog that will hopefully open us up to a whole new audience.

I am very excited to see where this little blog goes in 2017 so please keep popping in and please feel free to comment with ideas and suggestions!

Have an awesome rest of the week! I will be back soon with some book reviews and highlights of 2016.
