The Nerdy Girlie 4 Year Blog-iversary + Giveaway!

Is it a coincidence that my blog-iversary always ends up around San Diego Comic Con?!

No. No it is not!

I started this blog four years ago because I fell in love with everything SDCC. The city, where I lived, the panels, the swag, the celebs. But I soon found out it wasn't about any of those things. Those things were great and made Comic Con what it is, but my SDCC is about my friends.

  • If it wasn't for SDCC I wouldn't have started this blog.
  • I wouldn't have my best friends.
  • I wouldn't have the courage to write my words.
  • I wouldn't be living in Denver.

SDCC started it all for me in 2009 and I didn't even know it. It changed my life in a good way. It let me express myself and it's helped me grow as a person and find life long friendships.

So even though I won't be with you all at Comic Con 2016, I'll be dreaming of next year and continuing to be happy I FIGURED OUT MY PLACE IN TIME AND SPACE.

I have a giveaway for you all to help celebrate the occasion, but first my top four things that have happened since starting this blog!
1. Finding my friends. Through this blog, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Female Geek Blogger G+ group, we have found each other. I am so grateful for each and every one of you. I can't believe I get to be apart of such a fun, loving and caring group of nerds!

2. Finding my voice. I've never really struggled in my life before. I had it easy. But when I decided to get a divorce, easy was no longer an option. And I'm grateful for it. It helped me live the life I dreamed of living and it helped me find my true and honest voice. 100 Cups of Coffee wouldn't have happened either and I'm so proud of what it is becoming!
3. Being brace in the face of the unknown. This past year or so has been rough. Thank you for being there every step of the way and helping me through. With comments, tweets, emails and texts. You are amazing!
4. Being on a San Diego Comic Con panel. After SDCC brought all the happiness into my life. It came back full circle and I finally sat up on the stage of the place I had been going to for seven years. Thank you Comic Con and Tony Kim for making that dream come true.

NOW for the giveaway! I have a bunch of nerdy stuff to send your way so enter below!

Congratulations! many more to come!. I believe your first SDCC was back in 2012 same as Leonard Sultana and I :) It's been a long ang awesome road. And for my favorite Con moment, I don't know, I have so many! Maybe when Matt Groening ask ME for a picture (I was a Zombie) It took me a minute to realice that I was cosplaying. Or the 3 times I got 1st row at Hall H >__< everything is magical at SDCC. The greatest must be to have meet so many awesome friends.
