Our First Blog Birthday

January 30, 2010 § 4 Comments

I’m so excited to announce that today, January 30, is the one-year anniversary of the creation of Women’s Glib.

Starting the blog was a very random decision. Back in January 2009, I was an avid reader of a plethora of feminist and progressive blogs, having been introduced to Feministing by Shira a year and a half earlier.

I had flirted with the idea of starting my own blog, but the prospect was daunting, to say the least: Would I be able to update as often as I felt I should? How would I deal with abusive comments and insensitive critiques? Most importantly — who would read? But one Friday night on a whim, I created a WordPress account and the blog was born.

The answers to theĀ first two questions came when I decided to make Women’s Glib a group adventure. Having multiple bloggers allows us to update more frequently, to commiserate and laugh about misogynistic comments, and to explore a more diverse range of feminist thoughts and experiences. The seven young women who join me here are inspirational feminists, powerful writers, and amazing friends. Thanks, ladies!

The answer to the last question — who would read the blog — is constantly evolving. I am impressed and honored by our readership. Whether you are a blogger, a regular commenter here, or just a silent and supportive reader: Thanks. We owe you.

That concludes my one-year blog birthday reflection. Now for some photo goodness… Be honest with me, now: is Women’s Glib as cute as Shira’s sister Ellie was on her first birthday?

Cupcakes + babies = love.
