So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

Dearest readers,

Thank you for your patience as we’ve been on hiatus. As you may know, this blog is a labor of love off of which none of us have ever made a cent. Unfortunately, for that very reason, it’s also become a burden on us as writers, admins, and editors. As our lives have changed—and they have significantly over the last seven(!) years!—it’s become more difficult to keep up with the writing, editing, and posting schedule we set for ourselves.

We spent a long time working on trying to find a model that worked better for us and our authors—this hiatus was meant to be over in January! But ultimately we came to the conclusion we were trying to avoid: we can no longer maintain both this site and keep up with the rest of our personal and professional commitments and our own mental health. And so we’ve made a very difficult decision: to close down Lady Geek Girl & Friends for good.

We’re leaving the website available for readers—just because we won’t be creating more content, doesn’t mean we want readers to lose access to the thousands of posts we’re so proud of! That said, we have turned off the ability to comment on posts older than fourteen days—which, now, is all of them but this one—as we previously moderated comments individually and will no longer be actively doing so.

We would not have been the site we grew into without you all, dearest readers. From those of you who started as readers and eventually wrote for us, to those who left heartfelt comments, to those who just perused the site occasionally, you’re what kept us going for so long. Thank you for your attention over the years! We wish you all the best, and hope you feel the same way towards us.

With love,
Lady Geek Girl and Friends

About Lady Geek Girl

"God does not play dice with the universe: He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players [i.e. everybody], to being involved in an obscure and complex variant of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time."

  1. “It’s been a long day
    without you, my friend,
    and I’ll tell you all about it
    when I see you again…”

    You will be missed.

  4. Oh noooo, that’s really sad. I always enjoyed your posts and will really miss them. But I know how much time needs to be invested in a blog and “real life” should always be first … so: best of luck and I’m really grateful that the posts and the blog are still online.

  5. Oh no! I’m feeling quite emotional. This blog was a breath of fresh air and just a mix of all the topics I found interesting a really unique place. I totally understand why. I’m still going to miss it. :/ *goes to the people with pages so I can follow blogs from the wonderful people here*
