I missed my six month anniversary because I was so busy blogging about an issue that day. In 6 months and over 500 posts Womanist Musings has come so far. I remember how scared I was when I wrote my first blog post and hit the publish button. With each post I gained confidence that yes indeed, I had something to say. That confidence would not have been possible without your daily comments and your encouragement.
I love the conversations that happen here. I know that we cannot always agree and that I have done my fair share of fucking up, but through it all I have learned so much from everyone and I will be eternally grateful for that. I wanted to take the time to say thank you to everyone who keeps tuning into my daily rants that I politely renamed Musings. I want to thank you for laughing with me, sharing outrage, and most of all for teaching me.
At the 6 month mark I also feel it is time for a little bit of reflection. Is there anything about the blog that you would like to see changed? Are there issues that you would like me to focus on more? Would you like to see more “special” posts like those I do for Sunday Shame, or the first day of my period? If so what ideas do you have in mind? As always my goal is to increase the depth of conversation that we share and have a little fun a long the way. It is my hope that we will continue to grow as a community and learn from each other. As I have said repeatedly I am a huge believer in conversation. Until we start really listening to each other there can be no real and substantive change.
As always with love and respect,
