We girls love gadgets. Web and technology is an amazing world, filling our lives full of fun, fanaticism and functionality. Where would we be today without our laptops, mobile phones and of course the Internet? Lost most would say! These days, it’s hard to imagine not tweeting, tumbling, DMing or IMing your way through life. These gadgets are essential in almost every aspect of our lives whether it’s work or play. I for one couldn’t live without my laptop, mobile phones and especially the Internet!
Technology over the years has always been strongly male dominated, but recently this has started to change and the number of influential women in tech has greatly increased. With many groups and events being set up, such as Girl Geek Dinners and Women Who Tech , the female voice is finally being heard loud and clear.
This brings me on nicely to Girls ‘n’ Gadgets; As a Tech and Internet lover, I wanted to share my passion with the world and I knew I wasn’t the only girl out there wanting to do this. After going to many conferences and meeting like-minded people, I decided to set up Girls ‘n’ Gadgets to give women a place to go to get a female ‘take on tech’. The site will feature up-to-date news and reviews, as well as featured internet personalities and companies. To keep things interesting, we even have our own resident boy to review our weekly musings.
I hope that over the next month, whilst we are still in beta mode, you will enjoy what you see and read. As a new and growing site, all feedback is greatly appreciated and all comments will be taken into consideration. As time progresses, we will be adding more features and perfecting the site to the best of our abilities.
We are currently looking for more female bloggers to contribute to the site on a casual basis. If you are interested and have any questions, please email me – Leila@girlsngadgets.com
