Seven Sisters for All Things Girl

syorg-powerof media.jpg

Amy Jussel, executive Director of Shaping Youth included me in her Seven Sisters for All Things Girl series.

She said such nice things about me that it literally made me blush. For some reason I don't get many comments so it's really, really validating and affirming to know that there are people out there reading and appreciating my work. (Several readers have told me they are sometimes struck speechless -- I choose to take that as a compliment.)

Her Seven Sensational Blogs About Girls also serves as a nice introduction so some of the other Girl, Power Bloggers out there. I think I'll hope around some of those links, subscribe to some feeds and add them to my blogroll and extend the invitation for them to respond in kind - after all, we have a common interest.

Reign of the Girl Child is preteen specific and its author Felicia Richardson-Battle is also the author of Feel Good Girl.

Girls Horse Club is a blogazine created by girls for girls. If your daughter has an interest in horses and blogging this could be her online home. The girls are coralled by LeadMare, Michelle Bushneff. Yee Haw!

What About Our Daughters by Gina, who appears to share my conviction that the current economic situation is not a surprise if you were paying attention. (It's awfully political over there, I'm on a political fast.) Gina is also running a Michelle Obama Watch website which highlights the ways in which Michelle is treated by the public and the media. That could get interesting.

I was happy to see my friend Claire Mysko on the list. I've written about and given away copies of her book You're Amazing, A No-Pressure Guide To Being Your Best Self. You will want to check out her site 5 Resolutions to Transform The Fashion and Beauty Industries.

Also my b5media friend and fellow blogger Charlene Polansky's blog Sports Girls Play is on the list. Char writes about how to raise your daughter to be a fantastic, striving for excellence athlete. Check out this handy printable training journal to help your daughter track athletic goals.
Vanessa Van Petten writes On Youth and Teens Today . She is writing to the net-generation (why didn't I think of that?) and the Dirt-E Secrets of an Internet Kid an e-book which will tell parents all the really bad stuff to watch out for when monitoring their kids' Internet usage. (I'm afraid to look.)

That was a great list and I was also honored to be included. Yeah for all the girl power.

Shaping Youth said...

My turn to be embarrassed...um...I'm gonna send you a file of my logo instead of my mug shot, because frankly, I haven't looked that relaxed since I began Shaping Youth a couple years back...so I'd hate to misadvertise. ;-)

Ironically, the shot was taken impromptu for a Common Sense Media blog post series where they pulled posts from various indie resources (their blog is now dormant, I think they've decided how hard it is to keep up!) so hats off to you, Tracee, for 'keeping up' and keeping' on so vigilantly.

Whenever you feel like you're shouting into an echo chamber, know there are those of us who ARE reading and paying attention. (I told Felicia this too, we're all passionistas that tend to zoom fast and sometimes forget that even a one-liner can bring some joy juice to the comment-cause!) So back atcha on that one...pls. drop a line whether you agree/disagree w/any and all---no offense ever taken, I promise!

Now that the All Things Girl series has wrapped for now, I'm going to take a page out of Britt Bravo's 'Have Fun, Do Good' blog and give the gift of time
http://tinyurl.com/6rorut

...By shutting down for a long wkend and heading out of the country to meet my bro for some 'unplugged' non-media time.

Back atcha next week on Shaping Youth w/more on consuming kids, dangers of debt and kids' financial literacy.

Congrats again! --Amy

Incredible blog! I can't believe you've been right under my nose this whole time. I was also quite honored to be included in Amy's genius All Things Girls week/month :-) And I've discovered lots of awesome sites/blogs and organizations that tackle topics similar to mine through her posts.

Lots of super smart ladies doing some really positive stuff out here, it's so important that we share and link up. Great job everyone!
