As Danny has mentioned, today is ethecofem’s first birthday! A year ago today I wrote about my (now former) neighborhood and riding my bike around the city. Since then, I’ve written about all of the bloody marys I drank, I’ve bitched about stupid TV sitcoms, a few rants here and there and everywhere, gay marriage, religion, MRAs, stupid radio morning shows, language, and we had a fun little row about male vs. female privilege. Also board games, jokes, some douchebag who wrote about having sex with women who are sleeping, Superbowl commercials that I liked , I got married, wrote about food, I got mad at my blog, acquired several new co-bloggers, said bye to a couple, kids, stupid things that magazines write (Danny wrote one about the guys’ version of the same stupidity), a really stupid thing I found on YouTube, menstruation, I began my obsession with election seasons with a post about voting in the gubernatorial primary, how much banks suck, rhetoric, a critique of “Schrödinger’s Rapist,” and a bunch of other, more recent things.
I started this blog after I got fed up with NiceFeminist. Even though I’ve been blogging in some way or another for 9 years now, I’ve never managed to keep one blog address for more than a couple years. And I haven’t kept the same one for more than a year since that first one that I kept for a couple. So, this is a fun day.
Thanks to everyone who enjoys ethecofem and comes back to check out new posts and engage in fun and interesting discussions and debates in the comments. I like this blog a whole bunch because of all of the interesting, respectful, and intelligent people who comment and engage in these conversations.
Many more posts to come! (Actually, I’ll be trying to participate in November’s NaBloWriMo, so the goal is to write a post a day for a month– if I can manage to think of something to write every day!)
