The Geekie Awards: Voting Has Opened


I know I had mentioned that I have been nominated for a Geekie Award for Best Website/Blog, which is still beyond surreal by the way, but voting has officially opened and I would absolutely love it if you guys could vote for me if you enjoy reading my blog. You can vote every day, once a day, leading up to when voting closes on August 31st. I can’t tell you how much your love and support means to me with this!!

If you want to give me some ultimate love, head over to THIS PAGE and vote for me under Websites & Blogs.
Thanks for all the support this past year, my fellow geeks!

Merry Christmas!

A very Merry Christmas from Mr. & Mrs. Melificent!
May you enjoy every second with your families and friends.
Catch you all next week!

Blogger Confessions

My awesome blogger buddy, Megan, over at The Nerdy Girlie shared some of her blogger confessions and asked her followers to do the same. I think this is a great idea, because a lot of the time, I feel like bloggers don’t really talk about what goes on behind the scenes – even with each other! It’s been refreshing to read other bloggers’ lists and see that I am not alone in the things I struggle with and equally, the things I enjoy as being part of the ever-growing blogosphere.

1. I wish I had more time for my blog. Even though it may not seem like it, I have a full-time job away from the blog. This makes it very difficult to focus 100% on it, which always makes me feel like I’m not churning out the best content, promoting it enough on social media or updating the layout enough. I often find Sundays to be my go-to day for blogging, along with any free mornings I may have where I feel inspired. However, I really wish I had more free time to make it more of a priority. Yep, you could say I have blogger’s guilt.

ReBrand in Process: Let’s Geek Out!

Really really happy to announce that I will be rebranding the blog for the next few months. I’m sure you’ve all seen a gradual change to include all things geeky in pop culture, but I am going to take it one step further. From now on, Melificent will be a geeky fashion and lifestyle blog. That’s right. All geek, all the time. Don’t worry – outfit posts will continue to be featured, but they will center around how to rock your favorite fandoms in a chic way. All other content will center around how to live a geek chic lifestyle (fashion, beauty, home decor, DIY, conventions/events, cosplay, etc).

Of course, that means a new layout, new business cards, new promotional images and all sorts of fun stuff. But that will come with time. I don’t want to overwhelm the poor hubs! I hope you all are as excited about this as I am – I love my blog, but saw it slowly drifting into unknown and unfamiliar territory. I wanted to bring it back to something I know, and love.

Geek Out: Geeky Fashion Feature

Ever since starting The Fangirl Diaries at the beginning of this year, I have been able to stumble across some pretty amazing new ladies to follow on the blogosphere. I’ve been especially inspired by those blogging about geeky fashion (i.e., The Stylish Geek, The Nerdy Girlie & Geek PiƱata). Melificent is part fashion blog, part lifestyle, part whatever-comes-into-my-brain, but I have noticed over time that my geeky side is not showcased enough. For this reason, I want to incorporate it by having at least one geeky style post a month. That is, whether it be an outfit post, a round up of my favorite geeky accessories or home goods, I want this part of me to be seen.

So be on the look out for this month’s geek out. Did I just make up a new feature? Yessum.
