This is the official launch of my blog for young fabulous women interested and involved in the political arena. Prior to starting this blog, I always had this rather vague notion that a blogger is this self-indulgent type who lives in his/her parent’s basement, eats cold pizza and wears pajamas all day.
My life could not be more different. Not to mention that I’m the least tech savvy person next to your grandmother. Every piece of technology I touch is rendered useless in a matter of moments (seriously, ask my boyfriend).
I finally succumbed to this so-called phenomenon because I am well aware of the lack of women political bloggers (believe me, I’ve looked) – especially young women bloggers and especially young women bloggers of color.
I was up at 3am one night… thinking (which is always dangerous). This is undoubtedly the time when I come up with my most outlandish/ unhinged/ irrational ideas about how I’m going to take over the world. And I knew that I had to create a blog for female politicos. It just had to happen. Period.
I am fully aware that my current audience consists of about 3 people (my mom, my boyfriend and myself) but hope to grow a following in the months ahead. Stay tuned for more fabulousness to come! I’m out.
