Because RWW Comments aren't working... some more women bloggers

Neither Frank nor I could leave a comment yesterday on the RWW post about women bloggers, so he left one here. Now I see 27 comments there, so maybe they are working. For those adverse to clicking, here's Frank's list of women's bloggers to add to the cause:
Marshall's blog is broken. Well, it wouldn't let me leave a comment. Maybe I'm on a list. Anyway, here is what I tried to leave there. I reformatted it in hopes that I was merely being screened for too many links. Didn't work. But I always enjoy this exercise, no matter how many times we do it. Maybe someday we can do lists of bloggers who suck. Wait. That may already have been done. Anyway, here's what I tried to contribute at ReadWriteWeb...

Ronni Bennett,

Jessamyn West,

Betsy Devine,

Denise Howell,

Shelley Powers,

Leslie Winer,

Tamar Jacobson,

and http://theeverydaycafe.com/
Anne Zelenka.

There are nine names off the top of my head... people about whom I can't say enough. I'm sure there are another dozen I should highlight, and there are several women already listed who would be on my list if they hadn't been acknowledged already. Comparing the sheer numbers of people I respect and enjoy with the mere half a dozen or so who chafe my scrote, well... I'm coming out ahead.
Now, the job is to embed them into the mainstream, not highlight them as prime catches of a separate species.

A little less mainstream,
a whole more rock and roll

Adriana Lukas
Susan Crawford

There is you, but you are already here:)
Shelley has already been mentioned, and besides, everybody knows i am her dog

Everyone's a dog on the Internet, Alan.

See, I told you there were a whole lot more people I should mention. How did I leave out Zo and Susan? They're both (each in her own way) so NICE. (Adriana I'm not as close to, but she seems nice too.)

Oh my goodness! What a wonderful surprise to find me mentioned here. Thank you so much dear Frank and Jeneane. I am honored and grateful and humbled! And very, very happy to be in such great company..

Seems like we're having a lot of these. When it comes to webloggers, don't women make up the majority now?

I agree, it's time to see women on all lists, not just lists of women.

But thanks for listing me, Frank.

"Shelley has already been mentioned, and besides, everybody knows i am her dog"

Would that be rottweiler, or chihuahua?

I dunno. I think I'm trading in my blogging job for REAL woman's work: http://twitter.com/1938media/statuses/854608715

Glad my kid will see this:


It's ok to do that though. No nooses. S'all good.

Well, thank you, Frank. What a nice thing to do to put me in such good company.
