How to get your 'Nerd News'

Geek culture is becoming ever more popular and as a result we are frequently being treated to more geeky goodies. From superhero films to comic-conventions we really are being spoilt! With so much going on, it can be hard to stay up to date with the latest nerdy news, so in this post I'm going to tell you how you can keep up with it all.

Firstly there are of course lots of geek themed magazines out there, particularly ones that cover TV, film and game releases. To be honest, I don't often buy these magazines as I rarely get time to sit down and read one, but if there is a particular edition that is covering a film I'm excited about or has a big interview in it then I do treat myself. My boyfriend loves magazines like Empire as they have great film reviews. Although Empire is not strictly a geeky magazine, with so many superhero and sci-fi movies now gracing our screens, the mag regularly includes geeky gossip we want to hear. However, if you are looking for a magazine that solely focuses on geek culture, I recommend checking out SFX or Starburst magazine.

Similarly, you can check out nerdy news sites such as GamesRadar or Nerdist. Sites like these have great articles on game release news. They also have detailed reviews of upcoming nerdy films and TV shows. The brilliant thing about these websites is that they present their news and reviews in a variety of different ways, including articles, videos and podcasts.

Personally I love searching social media for geeky gossip! I am constantly on Instagram as @glamandgeek scrolling through my nerdy feed to find out updates on geek themed films and TV shows. Social media is probably the quickest way to find nerdy news, but you do have to be aware of the gossip that sometimes gets tangled up with real updates. The other risk with social media is the dreaded spoilers!!! I can remember having a major Game of Thrones death spoiled for me by someone posting about it on Facebook. I was very tempted to unfriend the individual after the incident, but luckily for them I was forgiving.

Finally, a great way to find out the latest news is by socialising with other geeky peeps. If there's any news I've missed, my nerdy friends are sure to fill me in with all the details.

So, that's how you can find out the latest nerdy news. How do you get your geek updates? Let me know in the comments below!
