My name is Claire and I am a proud gamer!
So the other day I got into a conversation on twitter with some of my blogger pals and I discovered that like me they were gamer girls. Big deal some might say, but for me its a huge deal. You see for years I played games alone and with my husband, he got it he always did, he knew I enjoyed gaming and he embraced my love for it. But to find other girls who enjoyed it as much as I do, that was massive.
I’ve always felt like I was the only one out there, I didn’t know any other girl’s that played. Until yesterday and honestly I can’t describe my excitement at the fact that some of my best blogger pals were like me…gamers! To quote what I said yesterday “I feel like I could poop rainbows” and if I was an actual unicorn I quite possibly could do that, but putting that to one side….it got me thinking. Where are all the gamer girls hiding?!
Because I get it! Maybe it’s not the coolest thing in the world on people looking in, but who cares right? If you enjoy doing something embrace it and show it off to the world. Gaming is no longer “for men”, its for us girls too and damn it we can give the men a good run for their money at COD or Fifa!
If you do consider yourself a gamer girl than let me know and let’s game together! The world needs more kick – ass gamer’s and if you’re thinking to yourself “well I’ve always wanted to try out that game my friend or partner has been playing” do it, without hesitation. A little tip; start out on The Sims, you won’t regret it!
