We are so proud of She’s the Geek for winning best Science and Technology Blog at the SA Blog Awards 2010 held on Saturday evening at the One & Only Hotel in the Waterfront. It was a memorable night, not only because the SA Blog Awards pulled out all the stops but because the top bloggers in South Africa were all together in one room.

The nominees were buzzing with excitement and glad to finally put a face to the online persona that many have only seen. It’s a bit strange to form a bond and relationship with someone via social media and only communicate using that medium for a long time, then to see them in person and not know how to act. It is a pleasant surprise when they are the same online as offline. But that’s all part of the beauty of social media!

The question was asked: what’s next for She’s the Geek? Well we just have to follow and keep up with her to find out!

Classic! This one is to all you ladies out there! If you are a woman, this song is dedicated to you. We have inserted the original version of the song and new version from Sex and the City 2 and also as a treat to help you sing-a-long the words. Enjoy ladies!

I Am Woman

-Artist: Helen Reddy from “Helen Reddy’s Greatest Hits”: EMI ST 11467
-peak Billboard position # 1 for 1 week in 1972
-Words and Music by Helen Reddy and Ray Burton

I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an’ pretend
’cause I’ve heard it all before
And I’ve been down there on the floor
No one’s ever gonna keep me down again

CHORUS
Oh yes I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman

You can bend but never break me
’cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
’cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul

CHORUS

I am woman watch me grow
See me standing toe to toe
As I spread my lovin’ arms across the land
But I’m still an embryo
With a long long way to go
Until I make my brother understand

Oh yes I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to I can face anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman
Oh, I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong

FADE
I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong
I am woman
