Women and Media and the Messages We Send.

{Using Media to send a message, about Media.  Oh how I love living in the age of technology.}  

I think of this often as a blogger.  I don't have many people check out my blog, and it may be because I do not focus on fashion, to-buy lists or beauty tutorials.  It may be some other reason all together, but if it is because I do not have a fashion or beauty blog, that's fine with me!  There are plenty of great women out there doing their thing and focusing on what it important to them.

To me, those things just don't interest me.  Of course I like getting new things, and yes I do wear makeup...but my politics around both of those things are very intense, almost unwavering and probably boring for the average internet browser to read.

I think as bloggers, especially those who get many hits (remember, we are searchable by google) we need to realize that we are part of this media and part of the way in which women are represented.  I am so happy that I have found some great women whose blogs I am proud to add to my list to read.  Whose words nourish me and inspire me and make me smile!

I am also so very PROUD to say that I get many hits from people googling "how to cut toxic people from your life."  Even if I don't have a lot of people reading, I know that I am somehow able to help the people who do stumble upon my blog in search for help, or even just a recipe!

Please watch this trailer, you will be glad you did.  

Then go see the movie.  

Thanks and happy, responsible blogging!
