It's been an exciting week here for a number of reasons. I've set up the bare minimums of my home office, which marks the beginning of my Freelance Career. I'm gearing up to launch a new site design in the month of July, at which time posting will probably reliably increase to 2x a day. Last night, I went to a party and met a new friend who pretty much immediately identified herself as a feminist (a somewhat rare occurrence here in post-college Southwest Virginia). My post on Michael Jackson brought on a huge wave of traffic, and I was linked by Womanist Musings (one of my very favorite blogs) and fellow new blogger Adventures of a Young Feminist.
On to the links!
