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.
