Introducing: Nikki Groom…Blogging Brit and Tudor Fan Girl

Who are you and what do you do?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I’m a geek. I’m also a word crafter, digital scribe, and British expat. I’m on a mission to empower extraordinary businesswomen (like YOU) through the power of the written word.


What will you be teaching at the Geek Girl Tech Conference this year?

Blogging. Want to start a blog? Or ready to take your blog to the next level? I’ve got you covered. Oh, and if you’re trying (and failing) to find your authentic writing voice, I’d love to help you out with that, too. Highlight me on your schedule and come shower me with questions.


What was your favorite part of the conference last year? 

In my next life, I want to be a photographer, so Maura Longueil’s workshop was definitely up there.


PC or Mac?

I’m a closet PC.


When did you first know you were geeky?

When I realized how at home I felt among other geeks at my first Geek Girl Tech Conference.


Star Wars or Star Trek?

Star Wars. No doubt.


Choose 5 people from any moment of time to have dinner and drinks with. Who would they be and why?

Whitney (in her hey-day, pre-drug addiction) – she was sassy, witty, and I loved her in The Bodyguard (who didn’t?)
Henry Cavill – why? C’mon ladies, have you SEEN “The Tudors”?
Marilyn Monroe – I just finished her autobiography. She seemed both humble and woefully misunderstood.
Robin Williams – he’d crack everyone up.
Buddha – to teach us a thing or two about the path to enlightenment.


Who do you feel has had the most impact on technology in your time?

Steve Jobs.


Facebook or Twitter?



Tell us something about you nobody knows….

I love it when people impersonate my accent. (Do it, I double dog dare ya.)
