New York City is my absolute favourite place to visit. I’m absolutely in love with the rumble of the city. Once, while in New York, Grant Hinds described the place as follows: You can put your hands up against a building or a wall and it feels like they…

Ah, the topic of wooden spoons the internet over. Let’s get stirring shall we? The discussion around brands collaborating with bloggers isn’t even grey, it is a murky dark green usually likened to the colour of pond scum (and some think bloggers…

There’s no beating around the Macbook when it comes to the latest offering from Plantronics – for I have in my hands (or on my head) the Plantronics RIG 500E gaming headset! This is an absolute beast of a headset that could function just as an alice band…

It’s not often that I just sit down and play a casual game just for fun anymore.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t game for fun, it’s just that when I’m in front of my PC I either want to play a game with friends or a game that’s going to…

Story
Tagline
Gadgets, giggles and a little bit of glamour.
Introduction

It’s hard to define a passion or an idea, but I’m going to try. My name is Sam and I’m the founder/editor of Tech Girl. 

Tech Girl is about Gadgets, about Glamour, about the occasional Giggle… but most importantly Tech Girl is about YOU. It’s a space on the internet that speaks to women, to girls, to moms… I’ve free-lanced for a few tech publications and during my time writing, reviewing and speaking to other women I’ve realised that we consume technology differently. We have different demands to our male counterparts when it comes to apps or smartphones and most importantly, we don’t take ourselves nearly as seriously as “tech savvy men”. We caught on a while back that technology is meant to make life easier but also be fun.

I’ve tried to create an online space that caters to every woman. Whether you’re a clued up digital diva who can hold her own in a Dota tournament or someone who just wants to know whether she can type on a touchscreen with falsies, we’ve got you covered.
