Finding Fellow Female Geek Bloggers
Have you played around with Google+ yet? I’m not as active on there as I am on other networks, but I am a member of a few Communities. Communities are similar to Facebook Groups or website forums, where like-minded people gather to share resources and chat about whatever they’re interested in. One G+ Community I particularly enjoy is Female Geek Bloggers, moderated by Bree Brouer and The Nerdy Girlie.
With 300+ members, there are a wide variety topics discussed, including Doctor Who, cosplay, comics, movies, anime, gaming (both video and board), and even “geek therapy.” I really enjoy the breadth of discussions, and have been exposed to topics and people I wouldn’t have otherwise stumbled upon. I also love the sense of community there – all of us interested in geeky things, supporting blogging and sometimes marketing efforts of other geeky females.
Quite a few of the members are also crafters, so I get to see plenty of interesting geekcrafts. A few projects that have been shared in the Community:
- comic book heels
- “She Blinded Me With Science” laboratory bathroom decor
- a Harry Potter makeup wand
- Wookie cookies
- Nerdy Shirts for Working Out
Who are some of your favorite female geek bloggers to follow?
