I love games!
Hi there! I’m GeekMom (aka Heather Weaver), and Geek Mom Mashup is my blog. In the real world, I’m a wife and mother. I have three kids, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and lots of hobbies.

When I’m not doing web design for clients, I like to make jewelry, crochet, and play video games. Visit my shops: Etsy | Redbubble

In my pre-mommy life, I was an enthusiastic science student and lab nerd. I have two dusty diplomas to show for it — a B.S. in biology, and an M.S. in environmental science and policy analysis. For a peek into my personal quirkiness, check out my other Heather Weaver sites.

  • Great site! I am glad you came by so I could find this place! Quite geeky myself… I love your (family’s?) Mii’s! 🙂 Take care.

  • Yes, those are Mii representations of my Hubby and kids. I think they’re pretty cute. 🙂

    Hi Heather,
    I noticed you on Posh Mama and had to see your site. It’s wonderful! I’m just starting mine and although it looks pretty now, it has a long way to go.
    I’m working with Project Wonderful right now for ads…
    My question is about iWeb. It doesn’t look like you use iWeb for your site. I’m finding it isn’t offering me as much wiggle room as I want.
    Do you have any suggestions on the hosting site you use? Or where to go from here?
    Thanks, Mel

  • Hi Mel,

    No, this isn’t an iWeb site. I used to use GoDaddy for my hosting, but have moved most of my domains to HostGator. I still have my craft shop on GoDaddy, and it works fine. I think either of them would be fine to host a blog. They both have easy installation of blog software. This one uses WordPress, and I have been very pleased with the ease of installation and customization. Lots of free templates and sidebar widgets available for WP too. Let me know if you need more info. I’m no expert, but I’m happy to tell you what I know.

    I really enjoyed your site – –

  • Hi Geek Mom, found you on Thesis Forum. I can’t seem to figure out how to start a post…how ungeeky is that! Saw your post in the introduction section and followed it over here. Nice site indeed. I might want to send some blogluv your way. Unfortunately right now, my blog did something weird. It spread out and have big white space between main and second column. have no idea how that happened. Any ideas how to fix? It used to be nice and tight and pretty …hmmm what to do. Maybe you can tell me how to start a thread ova there. thanks

  • Hi There, found your site in the Thesis Forums. I like that you stayed close to the original design! So did I. I’m at:

  • Hi! I don’t know if you are interested, but we are looking for someone to review gadgets for adults and kids to write for Gadget Angels. We would supply all the products to review (would never ask you to buy). Please email me if you are interested in more details! Love your site!
    Have a great day,
