Just in time for our one year anniversary, we have updated our look as we move forward into a new era for SAN. We hope to implement, in the future, a few changes to our website to better host a growing community of our favorite people, the lady nerds of the world.
|Congratulations on (almost) one year of successful blogging and may you have many more!

A year ago I was moping around my house. I would drag my feet around the kitchen and then into the living room. I would sit at my desk, turn on my computer, and then turn it off again. Flop thought there was something wrong. Like really wrong. At each discontented sigh, he would jerk around in his comfy chair (the spot of honor after a long day at work) and demand to know what the hell was going on. He would watch me out of the corner of his eye, twitchy and nervous, waiting for me to drop some disastrously bad news onto his head.
I had an idea and I couldn’t figure out for the life of me how to get it out of my head. With some help, I managed to figure it out, eventually. From our very first post, the SAN mission statement that still fuels every post I write…
Nerds are, in my opinion, a whole different type of person. That’s why this website exists: to cater to the different needs, obstacles, and interests faced by the modern lady nerd. We are a minority in the world, subjected to bizarre armor designs and an overwhelmingly male community convinced that real women are like the ones in they see on late night TV shows and porn: big boobs, small brain, good sammiches.Of course there are plenty of guys out there who do not fit this stereotype, so if you’re reading this and saying, “NUH UH! I’m a sensitive, considerate male!” then I am not talking about you. You are a special treasure. That being said, as a girl gamer navigating the male MMORPG world, I can’t help but notice how social issues of gender and sexuality have lagged behind in this faceless, egotistical community. This is a call to ladies to raise your voice! We matter, too! We are the weirdos in a weird world!
So, this past year, with the help of many insightful, passionate, and dedicated voices, She’s All Nerd has struggled through its first steps toward becoming a legitimate member of the online entertainment and gamer community.
I am grateful for every post my fellow writers have offered to this project, every Facebook like from our like-minded fans, every word of helpful advice, and every bit of encouragement and support we’ve received from friends and family members.
We are still looking for new contributors, however, and if you are interested, absolutely let us know! You can message our Facebook page, send an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), smoke signal, tweet, anything. We would be excessively excited to add a new perspective to our regular posts.
Tons of love and thank you!

I, Augratin, would like to say O HAI.
Things have been pretty quiet on the nerd front, it being the ‘off-season’ for blogging. But as we all know, with fall comes the return of All The Fandoms and a whole lot more free time. What’s been happening in Augratin-Land, you wonder? Well, it’s pretty boring but I’ll tell you anyway!

Plus, Flop and I are expecting the third addition to our small herd of demonic nerd spawn. We’ve got a few more weeks and then I’ll be up all night for many moons. I don’t know about you guys, but those hours when your newborn just wants to gaze up at you for hours at a time, ya know, from around 1 am to 5 am? And the patented jiggle hold just isn’t doing the trick? And baby doesn’t want to eat and the diaper is clean? Well, those are prime WoWing hours. When your husband wants to know how the FRACK you managed to pass him in item level when it appears you do nothing but zombie around all day, that’s how. It’s my little secret.
Now that the Nerd Hiatus is over, what can we look forward to, you wonder? My answer is ALL THE THINGS, in no particular order…
|Warlords of Draenor – November 13|
|If we’re lucky, maybe we’ll get some more NFL coverage from Flop.|
|I’m really looking forward to getting to make ridiculous drinks (on a limited basis–we don’t do drunken baby care around here, unfortunately) in a couple months.|
|Dr Who – August 23

|Walking Dead – October 12|
|Downton Abbey – January 4|
So many things to anticipate! And this isn’t even all the things! I’m certain I missed a few key items but I think this list is pretty damn exciting. Thanks for your patience during the nerd break this season and definitely keep up on Facebook.
Anime Wednesday is Go!

Also you’ll notice some of the other countries and bodies of water have weird names.
