Oh, Hi Blog!

So the first weekend of this month, I managed a wee little girls empowerment conference. Needless to say, I was super, insanely busy for a while and now I've just been enjoying my free time again so I haven't bothered to write.

Today won't be any different. I don't have anything revolutionary or amazing or even humorous to write, but I did want to pass along a few of the things I have been reading.

First is the wage gap by state. Pretty tragic, really. It doesn't matter what state you live in, after 40 years men will have made hundreds of thousands of dollars more than women. Maybe that's why the US ranks 19th in gender equity worldwide. Sad, sad stuff.

Just thought I'd pass along that little piece of sobering reality for those of you who stumble across this blog and think that feminism is irrelevant.

OH! Speaking of people stumbling across this blog--I was recently trolled! WOOOOOO! You know you've hit the big time when someone bothers to anonymously comment "Shu up."

Aw, so sweet...you're making me tear up. I've really arrived!


  1. You get trolls? I'm lucky if I get spam

  2. I know, I'm kind of a big deal. One was the shu up and the other was essentially a rape apologist. Both deleted.
