St. Isadore of Seville is also the Patron Saint of Bloggers which goes along with the computer geek/internet theme.

I'm not sure if there is one for that particular combination of attributes. But there are saints for particular aspects:

Patron Saints of mothers
Anne
Monica
Gerard Majella
Hilary of Poitiers


Patron Saints of adopted children
Clotilde
Thomas More
William of Rochester

Patron Saints of mothers/fathers/parents of large families
Adalbald of Ostrevant
Adelaide
Clotilde
Dagobert II
Dorothy of Montau
Edwin
Ferdinand III of Castille
Ivetta of Huy
Leonidas
Leopold
Louis IX
Margaret of Scotland
Matilda
Nicholas of Flue
Richard Gwyn
Thomas More
Vladimir

Note that some saints have patronages in multiple areas. For example, patrons for both large families and adopted children include:
Clotilde
Thomas More

As to "introverts", there are saints that may be appropriate for particular aspects:

Patron Saints against loneliness
Your guardian angel
Rita of Cascia

Saints who were Shy
Saint Therese of Lisieux
tinyurl.com (bull of canonization mentions her shyness)

St. Frances of Rome

Patron Saint against doubt
St Thomas

Patron Saint of Muteness
St. Drogo


Hopefully, some of the above may be what you are looking for.
