The 10 Spot - BlogHer Edition

Ten stories from female bloggers you may have missed.

  2. A badge worn with honor, Internet scold. [Ilyka Damen]
  3. Accidental Deb wonders how long it will take to stop noticing the accent. [Accidental Verbosity]

  5. Breast Implants and Culture Wars [Dynamist]

  9. Pant suit or skirt suit for your job interview? Apparently it makes a difference. [peskyapostrophe]

Great list! Kevin, thank you so much for helping spread the word about the BlogHer conference on July 30. Hope to see you there.

I'm no longer assured about nor sure of what groups based upon female gender is for and about. Having tried to participate in some of those in the entertainment industry, they seem to foster separation and conflict more than...well, the point should be do the work.

Seen far too many of these sorta things, finding them a tad dated, as to purpose. I can't write here that because I'm female, my ability to write is modified one way or another for these primary reasons: I've always been female (have no ability to compare the existence as it is with any other reality) and the fact that writing is a lone activity (for the most part, even among collaborators, who share by single author contributions arriving at a collective).

Not every female is bitchy and, unfortunately, there are many higher profile bloggers who are both female and bitchy and it only serves to reinforce negative stereotypes. Perhaps that's why they're popularly read: comforting to find your negative assumptions reinforced. Tedious, is what I say while I look around for some silent time. Anywhere. Else.

However, a surefire indication that there the conference is droopy would be if they have an awards ceremony for "Gurlz Who Blog!! With Cats, and, Oh, Yeah, Wonkette!!! with pink nametags and tablecloths and napkins with napkin rings and pens (just listen to all that clicking!!!) and...

The concluding ceremony, hopefully, will not be entitled, "At My Command, Unleash Hellish."

I didn't do it. Not this time anyway. I can inspire a lot of it though. One of my few talents.

I can't get the Wizbang trackpack to work for me this time. Bummer.
