Originally, it was so that I knew that I had all the little things I had worked out how to do in one place. Then as I started to blog more and receive comments, I realised that other people were also trying to work out the same issues – so tried to post on things that either aren’t clear in the documentation for a product, or things that I find need a more detailed explanation. I also get a lot of value out of reading other peoples blogs, especially if I am trying to find the resolution to a technical problem. I just wanted to be able to help someone else, the way that so many bloggers have helped me.
It varies between Geek Girl Blog promotion, updates as to where I may be presenting, to detailed technical posts. It really depends on what I am currently working on, and what else is going on.
I try to blog regularly. Again this varies depending on what I am currently working on. You can always see when I have been deeply involved in the technical aspects of a project as my posts reflect the technology I am working with at the time.
I also run a Podcasting series specifically for Women in IT which can be found on TPN & the GeekGirlBlogs site directly. These are normally released monthly.
I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Bronwen Zande at last years Tech Ed by Frank Arrigo, as I was complaining to him that there wasn’t enough support for the geek girls working in the IT community. Bronwen had the awesome idea to start the Geek Girl Blogs site and as a result – the site was created, and I am now a Geek Girl Blogger myself!
