Celebrating Women Bloggers: The W List

Posted by Connie Reece on August 14, 2020 at 12:37 pm

Many thanks to both Liz Strauss and Drew McLellan for adding my name to The W List, a celebration of women bloggers. I found it especially interesting that the announcement of this list coincided with my partner Mike Chapman’s post about the dearth of women bloggers at major events like Yearly Kos.

I’d like to call attention to several outstanding women who have informed / inspired / entertained me through their blogs. Please consider yourselves added to The W List …

StealthMode by Francine Hardaway — I love Francine’s spunky attitude toward life, adventure and blogging.

Spacey Gracey Review & TrueGritz by Grayson Daughters — Southern humor and outrageous opinion at its finest. (note to self: make Grayson an honorary member of Blogabillies; or is she too much of a refined Southern belle?)

Beltway Confidential by Julie Mason — Houston Chronicle’s Washington correspondent is dead-on funny in her blog about Beltway insiders and the press corps following their every move.

Crazy Aunt Purl by Laurie Perry — She learned to knit as a newly divorced wreck of a woman then found her voice when she started to blog. I’m really looking forward to her upcoming book, Drunk, Divorced and Covered in Cat Hair.

Jen McClure’s Ruminations & New Communications Review by Jen McClure — If you want to know what’s happening on the cutting edge of new media, you’ll find it in the New Comms Review, where Jen is the managing editor.

These names have been added to the list below. Is someone keeping a “definitive” list as we add more names of deserving women? If so, please let me know.

[…] lookie look, I made a national blog list: Celebrating Women Bloggers from blogosphere Queen Connie Reece. But note how she discreetly left out any notice of blogging […]

Connie, thanks for keeping this list circulating and making such great additions. But for this list I would never have known about your terrific blog or those you added.

Thank you, Susan. It is a great way to learn about new bloggers, and I’m amazed at the wealth of women writers I’m discovering through The W List.

And Grayson, hon, it wasn’t discretion that caused the omission of Peach Pundit; I didn’t know about it or I might have accused you of writing that one too. :-)

Thank you for promoting and listing women bloggers of all shapes and sizes. I think the world too soon forgets just how much we have to offer to the world through our thoughts, words and knowledge. KUDOS. I’ve found an interesting blog or two that I’ll certainly keep track of in the future.

I loved the idea behind the W-List but I wanted them to be organized so I took it upon myself. I added descriptions and categories to each posting.

Made August 17, 2020 at 5:04 pm

oh yeah! since you asked about a definitive list, since I put in all the time already to get descriptions on the existing list, I’d be happy to continue to update mine.

Neat idea! Since I’m a woman blogger…hopefully with time my blog will make the list too. :-)

Connie - I tagged you. You can probably do this tag in your sleep. http://www.babblesoft.com/blog/index.php/2007/08/19/blogging-tip-meme/

Since early this morning I have been roaming around the blogosphere trying to locate you. I found two blogs that don’t seem to be current and then I found the W List. So despite my concerns about separating and recognizing us by gender, the W List came in handy today. I have added every dot connects to my blogroll. Have a marvelous weekend.
