Women and blogging

The BlogHer conference just recently wrapped up and they seemed to have come to some powerful conclusions: namely that "women are the power of web 2.0". Blogging gives them a sense of community (dare I say sorority?), and allows them to achieve personal and professional independence.

Nowhere is this better exemplified than with my own cousin, Megan Salch who wanted to spend more time with her baby and started an online blog and business that would allow her to stay at home. She's doing very well and just recently was named "Mom of the month" on the Houston Moms website.

I see a lot of feminist criticism nowadays about women rejecting the workforce after having a child and wanting to stay at home..but maybe they can do even more innovative work there?

Glad to see you recognize not only a family member but another catagory of blog that is out there. Just one more way the web has place for everyone.
