First Post

OK, so I've finally done it. Several friends have suggested in the past that I start my own blog, but I was too commitment-phobic to do it. Although I can generally find time to write a community post on Feministing once or twice a week, for some reason the obligation of maintaining my own blog seemed overwhelming. But today I've decided to just power though the whole commitment-phobia thing and get on with it. Here goes.

So I'll start with a Quote of the Day to account for my blog title. It's a classic from the esteemed Pat Robertson:
"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
Still makes me giggle, after all these years. Thanks, Pat!

  4. Good luck.

    So is there going to be a quote of the day every day?

    Also, you might want to look into getting Sitemeter or something along those lines. Its always fun to see where the people who swing by your blog are coming from (although it can be addicting, checking when you wake up to see if that person from New Zeland or whever came by your blog again).

  5. Thanks everyone! I'll definitely check out sitemeter. I'm not sure I can pull off a quote of the day every day, but whenever I come across good one...and at least once a week.

  6. Sitemeter was a hassle to set up, I definitely had to to follow the specific instructions.
