This post is an announcement. It will stay at the top of the blog for several days; newer posts will appear below.
Today, I just so happened to reach my 200,000th visit on the blog. And this Friday, April 18th, will be my one year anniversary of blogging and the one year anniversary of The Curvature.
I know it’s cliché, but in some ways I feel like I’ve been doing this forever, and in other ways I feel like I’ve just started. A lot has happened in the past year and I have been far more well-received than I ever could have dreamed. Thank you, everyone, for reading, commenting and/or linking to me.
And things are changing! This week, I will become a contributor over at Feministe. Feministe is, without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite feminist blogs. It’s filled with great writers who deal genuinely with intersecting movements and more than just “white women’s issues” on a daily basis. It includes the views of trans* women and men, sex workers and other marginalized groups who are regularly spurned in other feminist spaces. Its writers listen to their readers and engage with the difficult topics that it’s often easier to ignore. I see a comment on the site at least once a week from a reader who explains that these are the reasons they read Feministe. And I am personally honored to have been asked to be a part of it.
I will not be abandoning The Curvature. It’s my home, and after a year I’m certainly not ready to abandon it. I still intend to write here my usual six days a week, while contributing two or three posts to Feministe each week. A lot of what I post at Feministe will probably be cross-posted here.
I’m sure that figuring out how to get it all done will take me a bit of time, so I hope that you’ll bear with me. And while I’m sure that most of you read Feministe already, I hope that those of you who don’t will start — and not stop reading The Curvature! Wish me luck.
