She Geek Issue #1

You know what this world needs? Another blog of course!

Welcome to the She Geek Diaries! I’ve been trying to figure out how to introduce this blog, but I’m not so great at organizing my thoughts (I know that bodes REALLY well for a form of media that relies on writing). So I figure the best way to get this thing off the ground is to answer some N.A.Q.s (Never Asked Questions).

Where did the name “She Geek” come from?

I’ve been reading The She-Hulk Diaries by Marta Acosta. It’s a fun read and I recommend it, but at one point She Hulk says, “Male is not the default superhero gender.” I thought that was a bit ironic coming from a character whose name is the female pronoun slapped in front of her male counterpart’s name.

So I’m choosing to honor She Hulk’s feminist ideals by stealing her patriarchal name. I realize it makes no sense, but there are far more important things going on in the world than superhero names.

Why did you choose to start a blog?

Because I wanted to.

How often will you post?

My aim is to post at least one diary entry a week. In addition there will be a “woman crush” every Wednesday.

What is this blog going to be about?

Everything. It’s a diary, so it’s whatever random thoughts come to my mind. I’ll try and relate most posts to geek culture, but some will just be about everyday life. There will probably be quite a few posts about wedding planning.

Did you say wedding planning?

I sure did! I’m getting married July 2016! My fiancé is also a huge geek (you can find his blog at ThereforeIGeek.com). We are planning a chic-geek wedding. It’s going to be quite fun!

Ok, but this is really going to be a blog about cosplaying, right?

Not every geek blog written by women centers around cosplaying. I do enjoy getting dressed up, and I’ll probably write a little bit about it, but if that’s what your into then there are much better blogs to follow.

So why should I follow your blog?

I have no idea.  Beacuse voyeurism has become a national pastime? Oh, and because I’ll post lots of pictures of my dog.

You have a dog?

Yes, and I’m mildly obsessed with him.

Yes, that’s an Ewok in his mouth.

I’m more of a cat person.

I also have two cats, but I haven’t had them for as long and they’re not as easy to dress up. Also, that wasn’t a question.

Let’s get back on topic. What fandoms are you into?

My biggest fandom is probably Disney, but I’m into everything.

-Star Wars

-Firefly

-Doctor Who

-Marvel

-Muppets

-Broadway Musicals

-Harry Potter

-X-Men

-Lots of other stuff that isn’t coming to mind right now

 

I think just about covers it.

  1. Becky have fun with this. Morgan is a total geek in the eclectic way. She and her friends would click in with your group. Your wedding will be so fun when you incorporate the geekiness! Good luck. Sincerely Debbie (Aunt Paula’s college friend)
