Hit Restart?

After sending out the "official" announcement of this blog, I reread some of our initial what the heck are we doing posts and wondered what sort of impression they might make. Would it be best to start fresh with the announcement? But then I realized that it is precisely that sort of struggling dialogue that we want to explore and cultivate in this forum. This isn't about the finished product on women's blogs. Rather, it's about blogging itself as process, conversation, and art, as well as the unique perspective that women bring to the medium.

At this point, we are casting the net wide to see what we can capture (or, really, set free). The rules are fairly straightforward. Bloggers must identify as women, be active in blogging or related activities and make their true identies known to the blog mistresses. Topics can vary. Positions can vary. The tone should always be respectful.

Men are welcome to comment.

Let's see what we can create together and take it from there ...


  1. Perhaps you should start a social net ball league?

    Net ball is a game played in the Pacific nations (mostly) and the UK. It is more of a women's game and much like basketball.

    Perhaps the roller derby league would be another place to get additional bloggers to join your ranks.

    Good luck!

  2. Thanks for being our first commenter, Mark. :-)

    I've never heard of net ball, but my cousin's wife is from the Solomon Islands so I'll give her an ask.

    Keep readin'!

  3. Sounds like a really cool idea you have going here.

    I'm looking forward to reading!
