Wasup! My name is Jamila (pronounced Ja-me-la), I’m a military brat and my “hometown” is The Bronx. I started Girl Gone Geek Blog in May 2010 to muse about my geeky obsessions. I co-founded Geek Girl Brunch (along with my friends Rachel and Yissel), which is a meetup group for women who geek out together, typically when mimosas and bacon are involved. I also love NSFW rap music which helped birth the tumblr blog Straight Outta Gotham, where I make memes and GIFs out of geeky rap lyrics (there are more than you think). I fancy comics, anime, manga, really cute video games, really gory video games, sci-fi, space, post-humanism, cats, fantasy, coffee (but it’s more of an addiction), afrofuturism, dreams (the kind that happen when you sleep), sauvignon blanc and Hawaiian pizza. I’m terrified of centipedes and UFO abductions. I have a tendency to name cats that I don’t own (yet) and I get overly attached to the romantic lives of shoujo manga characters.

    Hey girl – love your blog.

    I have a blog about geeky stuff too, (with the same theme!) and I’m going to post you up on my blogroll. Would it be possible for you to do the same for me, if you like my blog, that is?

    You can see it at http://leiashotfirst.wordpress.com :)

    Cool blog! I just found it. Great idea. I came here by way of the podcast interview you did with aboundlessworld.com. The owner of that site is someone I communicate with on an app called CyberDust. You should join if you aren’t on there. It will open up a new audience for you.
