TNG: How and why did you start blogging?
Emily: I’m in school for Journalism and have been a journalist since I was 15, so I really wanted to start writing things that I wanted to talk about instead of something someone told me to write about. Peter (my boyfriend and co-founder of the blog) really wanted to start a blog as well, so when we finally found the time, Wrong Button was created.
TNG: YOUR favorite blog?
Emily: I read The Mary Sue religiously. It has a lot of great content, and it’s one of the best blogs out there for nerdy girl news.
TNG: What is your favorite thing/things to nerd out about?
Emily: Oh man, that is a good question. I have so many nerdy obsessions, and I love to nerd out about all of them! I guess my biggest obsession is video games, though. I love playing them, talking about them, writing about out, everything. I’m also a huge Harry Potter nerd. I could probably talk about Harry Potter forever.
TNG: Any tips for San Diego Comic Con?
Emily: Well, I’ve never been to Comic Con (someday!), but we were in San Diego for another convention during SDCC 13 The best advice I can give is to plan early and do some research. I know a lot of people have trouble booking hotels, so as soon as you know the dates for SDCC, see about rates. Even if you don’t get a badge, you can still come for the weekend and hang out. It’s always good to research bars and restaurants in the area so that you’re not aimlessly wondering around.
TNG: Girlie things you love?
Emily: Peter can attest that I LOVE clothes. I have a stupid amount of clothes. Most of them are awesome nerdy t-shirts and tanks, but I just generally have a lot of pieces. I’m the type of person that likes to have a new outfit for every special occasion, so that starts to pile up. I’m by no means a fashionista, but I do love a good shopping trip.
