It's a woman, er, no, it's a writer thang....

Just want to take a minute to thank judiphilly at Truth, Justice and Peace for listing me as one of her top ten women bloggers.

She was prompted to do so by Women's Voices/Women's Vote, a website which is, in honor of National Women's History Month, is holding a "name your favorite woman blogger" contest. (Full disclosure I just voted for Shakes.)

Judiphilly makes two very good points:

"There are a lot of really good women bloggers who deserve more recognition..."


"I don't normally focus on male vs. female bloggers -- I like well written, intelligent writers, with a bit of humor on occasion."

I replied:

I'm honored to be included in your favorites. You're right, it's not about gender, it's about writing. My mother is an artist and when they opened the Museum of Women's Art she said, "Ick, I wouldn't want to be ghettoized like that."

But I really do appreciate the mention especially in such fine company. Thanks.

Ironic that this time last year we didn't KNOW Digby was female.


  1. I haven't been reading you that long, but I think you deserve it. Congrats.

  2. i voted for you last week or so. not sure. i have end of winter fuzzy brain. : )

  3. Congratulations! I am sure that you will brighten up the "ghetto."

  4. It has been an honor to play in your ghetto.

  5. Thanks for the mention and thanks for your writing (both here and at C&L). It always covers the 3i's -- insightful, interesting and informative.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
