All good superheros have an origin story. This is ours.

Some Nerd Girl represents all the ladies out there – young and old – who find joy in all the nerdy things in life. We thrive in a culture of creativity, invention, learning, laughing, exploring, expanding and damn good storytelling. We love everything from web comics, robots and video games to books, board games and cosplay and so much more in between. The universe of our interests is dizzying, and we’re here to tell you all about it!

You might be thinking; why focus only on the X chromosome? I mean, isn’t the goal to be equal and gender neutral these days?

Quite frankly; that would be a relief! The truth us, there are still a lot of misconceptions out there that deserve discussion and introspection. At the same time, there are plenty of things that deserve celebration as well – and we want to make sure we reinforce those times of triumph. We hope that by sharing our experiences and opening a dialog about all things interesting or controversial, we will contribute to the evolution of the culture we proudly subscribe to.

At Some Nerd Girl, you’ll see a series of Origin Stories where our writers tell you when and where they first realized the nerd inside of them. You’ll hear about convention tales, whether they be good, bad, or ugly. And you’ll see original pieces and recommendations for all things nerdy!

Our contributors are diverse – anyone who wants a voice regarding women in medium or the culture is welcome to be a part of our troupe. We hope you’ll enjoy hearing from them and nerding out with us!
