For the next two weeks posting here at blue milk is likely to be light because I am guest writing over at Feministe. The gig starts on Monday. Of course I’m thrilled about the invitation.
I am a huge fan of Feministe but I have also been critical, at times, of how the site responds to certain topics, particularly motherhood, so I will be venturing into that area over there. (Wish me luck). It is one of the things I admire about Jill Filipovic – how she opens Feministe up to branches of feminism outside the site’s own. It is a level of scrutiny many other philosophies do not allow themselves.
It will be fun trying my hand at writing for a different audience. It is so fast and furious over there and I am so slow and tired and chaotic and Australian time-zoned.
I am aware that I have stopped writing as much about my own life here and now do a lot more linking to articles I like and articles I have written. I’m working on creating the headspace to get back into more of the blogging I enjoy most – that documenting of one’s own travels through motherhood. I’m throwing caution to the wind and trying to make sure some of my posts for Feministe are in that style, too.
