Girls just wanna have Blogs?

This wonderful post about the Top20 PR PowerWomen over at Conversation Agent by Valeria Maltoni is what lit a fire deep down inside of me – it helped snap me out of a life-slump and slingshot me back into taking control over what path I choose to walk, instead of one I find myself on.

Valeria and Rebecca Thorman expanded on the original list to create the “W List” – a list of women bloggers that is growing daily! I am deeply honored to have been included on the list for my other (tech-related) Blog at Tech-Kitten.com, and my challenge now is to live up to the wonderful and warm feedback and encouragement I’ve received since the original post. Boy do I love a challenge!

Now I’m not in any way downplaying the importance of male bloggers – a mind-bogglingly huge number of them have made enormous contributions to the ever changing landscape of life online. But in all fairness, men have had their “good old boy” network in place for countless ages. And it’s a shameful disgrace that our county has yet to have a fully-ratified ERA added to our constitution. So in the meantime, we women must settle for shouting our sisterhood from the rooftops, and supporting each other at every opportunity.

So here’s a big shout-out to all my sisters in cyberspace – you rock! If you’re a female blogger and I’ve missed you on this list – let me know, I’d love to add you.

    A second blog, wow! This is a cool environment for the hot summer we’ve been having. This morning I got up a little later and almost fainted at the end of my run ;-)

    Thank you so much for spreading the word on this excellent group of writers. We’re adding more every day and I think we have now surpassed the 125 mark.

    Thanks for republishing the list, Trisha. I think you’re title “Girls just wanna have blogs,” is the best yet! I’m looking forward to getting to know your blog!
