What Do YOU Want?

Tracee Sioux Headshot 72.jpg

I'd like a better idea of who my audience is and what YOU want from this site.

I won a blog critique from Chris G at chrisg.com. If the co-author of theProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income tells you to move your site and give it a makeover - well, you do it. Empowering Girls: So Sioux Me is going to be redesigned soon.

This is your opportunity to tell me what you would like to see more of or less of.

What kind of design?

What kind of content?

I love it when you take something that I've never analyzed and make me see beyond the product on to the intent. Ex; the disney princess stuff, the slutty clothes stuff, etc. More of that.

I just found your blog recently and subscribed to it as well : )
I say sure if you want to revamp the look, great...but the content is what's important and I really love the content of your posts!

Tracee said...

Thanks so much - both of you.

You could make the blog look more modern, state of the art, powerful woman, instead of a blogger standard. The content is great!

Kate said...

I think your personal commentary on larger political issues and feminist thought are where your writing and talents really, really shine.

Yaya said...

I love it when you advocate for the development of young girls and state how things like Mommy's body image or a kid's tv show can drastically effect their developing self-esteem. It's one of those things where you just don't realize it unless it hits you in the face.

Hello Tracee! :)

I've been a follower of yours since the ‘5 Minutes for Mom’ blog party. I’m the (single) mama of two boys, so raising a confident ‘daughter’ isn’t an issue for me. LOL I am however, a woman who gets very tired of being ‘labeled’ in one form or another and refuses to be limited by my gender or marital status! My confidence does radiate in my sons and I pray that will enable them to show respect for the women in their lives! Someday, I hope to have daughter-in-laws and perhaps granddaughters that will also be positively affected by what my sons and I learn and practice now. In the meantime, I baby-sit a beautiful little girl with Downs that glows with self-confidence and it is a wonderful thing! I don't often leave you a comment because frankly, I'm always left speechless – but informed! Your topics and outlook are intriguing and thought provoking. When it comes to your content dear - you rock! As far as your makeover, I’d try to go with something feminine, yet very powerful! Something that says, I'm woman, I've got something important to say - - HEAR ME ROAR!!!

Best Wishes for a fantastic new makeover – you deserve it!

Yaya and 'that girl' summed it up for me... I've refused to buy princess paraphernalia since I read your post on it (not banning it, but will definitely be talking about it) and have posted Naomi Wolf's quote that I found here in my bedroom.

Tracee said...

Christina - I always pray there are mothers out there who are raising boys in a strong confident way. The type of boys that I hope my daughter will want to be married to. The type of boys that will see her as a human being instead of an object.

I know there are because I have friends like Jenn, Christi, Jennifer, Lisa, Karyn - women I personally know are raising good husbands and fathers. I'm trying to do that with Zack.

I'm thrilled to hear you're out there too. I hope there are millions more just like you!

Tracee said...

Anna, I too posted that quote on my bathroom mirror when I was losing weight. To remind myself to be kind to myself anyway. To remind myself not to self-deprecate as I tried to change some unhealthful habits.

I'm thrilled to hear about your new princess strategy.

Sorry - life got in the way of me popping through my feeds this week, and I have been in lurk mode for quite a while.

Congratulations on your makeover!!!

I think clean design is always great for ease of reading.

Make sure you don't disappear!!
