Way back in 2009, I started a twitter account @geekgirls to connect with other gals who shared my interests in comics, video games, and sci-fi. To my surprise and excitement, I found that this is where all the geek girls had been hanging out! I had no idea so many awesome women were already online connecting with each other. At that time, geeky sites with a strong female voice were almost non-existent and the sites that did exist weren’t getting the recognition they deserved.
Geek Girls Network (GGN) was launched as a home for us all to post our thoughts, knowledge, and support for the amazing women already making waves in our community. Our content was fresh and provided an outlet for women across a broad spectrum of geeky backgrounds. We started blogging, podcasting, hosting Geek-Out parties, delivering news, and travelling to cons.
Years later, there are thousands of geeks blogging, podcasting, and promoting all the amazing stuff they do. It’s so thrilling to know there are so many inspiring women online today, making their voices heard, and supporting our growing community.
GGN retired because I met the man of my dreams and had a beautiful baby boy. So although I’m a geek girl at heart, most of my days are spent elbow deep in diapers, singing The Wheel on the Bus for the fucking billionth time. If you see me, please bring coffee.
