Hi, there! Thank you for visiting NERDSHOCK HQ the personal lifestyle blog of Aleida Samallo (1984) dedicated to celebrating awesome movies, bustamove tunes, epic videogames, delicious food & geeking out.
Read on if you want to know more about the NERDSHOCK Project or jump straight to the good bits ♥
How it all started
After running various personal blogs for several years, I started to notice I enjoyed writing about the things I loved a whole lot more than simply keeping an online diary about my daily adventures. During Fall 2012 I decided to work on setting up the NERDSHOCK Project, set up a teaser trailer and officially launched the main website at the start of 2013.
Why did I choose NERDSHOCK to be the name of my new blog and related projects? I was looking for a word that would describe the essence of the project.
NERDSHOCK isn’t a person nor a thing, it’s that electrifying feeling that overcomes you when you’re celebrating the things you love ♥
I guess it’s somewhat similar to a ‘nerdgasm’, but waaaay less messy. Trust me.
On Hiatus / Comeback
Even though launch year went pretty well, I found myself being totally busy with work and I was forced to put NERDSHOCK HQ on hiatus. I also stopped doing unboxings, but I never stopped enjoying awesome movies, bustamove tunes, epic videogames, delicious food & geeking out… ah, and totally tweeting about it via @Twitter *coughs*
Although I was stuck in a work rut, I never thought about quitting the NERDSHOCK Project. I’m still very busy with work, but seem to have found a better work-life balance and am excited to return to HQ. Just in time to celebrate the 5 year anniversary which I plan to celebrate thoroughly in 2018.
