While I read blogs to keep up with the world of libraries, I am a dye-in-the-wool geek. I thought the best way to combine both is spotlight blogs people may want to add to their favourite RSS feed. Therefore kicking off this new feature is a blog I discovered by accident and really enjoy for its well-written entries combined with cheeky humour. (No surprise as the ladies responsible for Geeky Girls are in fields such a PR and journalism.)
In the blog spotlight: Geeky Girls Love Sci-Fi.
The blog covers anything and everything related to science fiction and fantasy from their home base in the UK. Besides the usual Doctor Who entries, the blog also covers gift ideas and any tidbits gathered from the web. Sometimes they even score interviews like one entry interviewing the stars of Torchwood: Miracle Day.
Keep in mind the ‘Geeky Girls’ are out of the UK and do write about shows like The Fades and Misfits, two series not shown in North America. I would add ‘yet’ to that last statement as both series may make their way to either Space or BBC Canada. It’s just good to say you knew about something out of the UK before anyone else gets to read about it in their local paper. The ladies behind Geeky Girls Love Sci-Fi can keep you, reader, ahead of the game.
Sometimes entries stop for a few days, or a week, and sometimes they come in bunches. On the day I decided to create the blog spotlight, I saw three new entries on my Google reader. No surprise as Christmas usually means a new Doctor Who special. Overall they are worth keeping on your RSS feed and you can also like them on Facebook, or follow them on Twitter. (I personally do the former.)
Keep checking back on Fridays for a new blog spotlight.
