Geek Girls Gab with The Geeky Hostess

Tara Theoharis is the girl behind The Geeky Hostess and an all-around online content creator. She's a producer of the web series Job Hunters, a producer of the YouTube channel "Satire," and can frequently be seen on the Geeky makeup channel, OneUpMakeup. When not creating online content, she loves catching up on shows, checking out the latest memes, making cupcakes, and attending conventions.
The Nerdy Girlie:  What is your 1st nerd memory?
Tara:  I remember playing with my brother's TMNT figures when we were younger, and often literally dreaming about April O'Neil. In one particular dream, I helped the turtles and Shredder work out their differences so we could all become friends. 

TNG:  How and why did you start blogging?
Tara:  I originally started blogging for a gaming blog called "Zaxy" which was run through a social media agency I worked at. I loved it, but wanted to create something a bit more girly and more "me," so I created the Geeky Hostess!  Three years have gone by and I still absolutely love blogging. I love getting to share cool news and new products with my readers every day! (And of course, I did a bit of amateur blogging in high school through LiveJournal, but no one needs to see that. Ever.)

TNG:  YOUR favorite blog read?
Tara:  I have too many! Some include The MarySue, the various sites that make up Nerd Approved, Being Geek Chic, and When Geeks Wed.
TNG:  What is your favorite thing/things to nerd out about?
Tara:  My recent favorite fandoms include Doctor Who and BSG, but as far as shows go, I nerd out the most about Arrested Development. Other topics that make me nerd out include: the science of beauty/attraction, modern day etiquette, and social media marketing. 

TNG:  Any tips for San Diego Comic Con?
Tara:  Listen to your body: Know when you need to sleep, need more water, and need to eat! Although it may not seem like it at times, your health is more important than that panel or limited edition item.  I have a great write up on convention etiquette over at The Geeky Hostess.
TNG:  Girlie things you love?
Tara:  I love shopping! I just try to do it in a frugal way by keeping an eye on sales, clearance racks, and less expensive stores (like Forever 21). 
I also can't resist a chance to get dressed up. I love feeling pretty! 
Oh, and if baking and cats are girlie, then those as well. :-)
