Weekly Adventures

The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind for me. Before Christmas, we decided to launch a new site for the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club. We wanted to move it over to Wordpress so we'd have more flexibility with it. Well we've been working day and night, all 5 of us and a few new staff members that joined in a week or so ago, on the design, moving over content, setting up bloggers, and just making the new site pretty! We launched the site last Saturday and it was a smooth transition!


You can check out the new site here. But one of the best things about the site is that we've added in achievements. We have achievement codes hidden throughout the site so when you find one, you can redeem the code for points. We've also included achievement points for things like 'first post', '10 replies', or participating in swaps and signing up for a pen pal round. It's been so much fun hiding them and having the members searching for them! It's become a bit of a competition with some of them haha.

We also launched Round 10 today to sign up for a pen pal, which you can sign up for here. I'm so ridiculously excited to see where IGGPPC takes us this year! 2013 was crazy fun and so exciting! With the new site being launched, a much better forum, more swaps, and extra staff to help, I can only imagine the things we can accomplish this year!


So during the Christmas season we set up a Holiday Card Swap on the site. Tons of ladies signed up and I'm astonished at how many cards I received!


We started a Valentines Swap this past weekend! If you're not a member, sign up to the site and join in! I'm so excited to go out and buy Valentines. I'm leaning towards the My Little Pony ones I keep seeing. 

So all of this has been my life for the last two weeks and I'm so proud of it! Thanks for all the support!
