Estrogen Month - Day 13

One of the great things about comics conventions in the 21st century is the way every enthusiastic fan seems to have his or her own blog, so reconnecting with old friends is often just a matter of exchanging URLs. One of the more unexpected delights on Day 3 of last month's NY Comic Con was meeting up with Randi Mason, who just happens to have a LiveJournal blog called Thoughts, Clippings, and Utter Nonsense. Randi's a librarian, a pal from our Friends of Lulu days, and a very prolific blogger. The blog seems to specialize in finding interesting bits of online pop culture ephemera, like Stump the Bookseller and Album Insanity. Randi's more on the lighter side of things than the polemical side, but we can't all be fiery feminist standard-bearers or things would just get overwhelming and exhausting, wouldn't they?

The guidelines for nominating and voting for feminist pop-culture bloggers during Estrogen Month are outlined here. I'm also hosting the 12th Carnival of Feminist Science Fiction and Fantasy Fans on March 31. The deadline for submissions is March 29, and guidelines are outlined here (please send links via email or use this submission form).
