ada lovelace stem

Ada Lovelace was a BOSS and I don’t think she gets as much credit as she should. This “Enchantress of Numbers” published her own notes on the analytical engine and helped inspire the first modern day computer. Does Alan Touring ring a bell?

But you already knew that, you read last year’s post.

This year, I’m doing things a little differently…

Happy Blogaversary to Me!

by Keisha on October 2, 2014

Hey There,

Yesterday was my Blogaversary! Did you get a chance to read the Ask CGGD topic?

I am so excited to have the opportunity to write about technology, lifestyle and all the geekery that comes along for the last three years.

Having this blog has opened up so many doors. I’ve traveled across the country in the name of tech, I’ve created new friendships, and connected with people all over the world that I’ve never had the opportunity to do without this avenue.

So I’m doing something different this year…

Instead of a giveaway on the actual day or even the week, I’ll be celebrating all month!

I’ll be bringing original content twice a week on topics that I really think you’ll love and launching something BRAND NEW(caps means it’s real) in November!

Speaking of you, I love this space and it’s not just about me. My voice speaks for various communities and populations. I’d like to think that I write about topics that I would hope you would be interested in as well.

Whether I’m writing about Baltimore tech culture or geeky Dr. Who things, I want to make sure I don’t leave you hanging. I’ll definitely keep the hot topic/news articles in the mix but I definitely want to bring some long form/storytelling perspective posts to City Girl Goes Digital.

I also know that it is important to give and receive feedback. I’ve been writing on the web for a long time and not a word goes by without another person’s eyes on it(S/O to the editors of the world…you’re the real MVP). Because of this, I’ve attached the survey to this post and would love if you could fill it out. I’ll have it open and ongoing all month.

Thank you for the love, e-mails, e-hugs and tweets. I can’t want to bring you the best content ever!

xoxo,

Keisha

Digital Girl’s Guide to Moving: The Hunt

September 29, 2014

Confession: Up until about 5 years ago, I moved every year. My friends joked that I couldn’t stay in one place and they were tired of lugging my stuff around Baltimore. In my defense, each move happened for one reason or another but each time I’d use the same process. 1. Pick an area 2. Determine wants […]

Review: 808 Audio Canz Wireless Speaker
