Women Do Journalism!

Look, the CJR found a whole 20 women in journalism! (One of whom is actually a woman in women-in-journalism journalism! How meta.)

Who am I kidding, I'm just mad I wasn't on the list.

Lo, this blog is revived. No promises of any future content, as I am wicked busy with non-women-in-journalism journalism, but this blog once played a role in my life much like that of a dialysis machine to a kidney-failure patient, and I rather miss it. The unvented spleen just piles up around here.

Also I am thinking of moving it to Tumblr, which I imagine will let me byline everything "Samuel Johnson" in peace, and also reap me a bountiful harvest of peevish social-justice wank. (Le sigh.) Tell me your thoughts, O readers, if there are still any of you out there.


  1. I love you & WomenDo, always and forever, Samuel Johnson/Harris. I will follow you to the promised land of Tumblr if you promise me the sweet manna of more WomenDo posts.

  2. (a) so much gland-ness
    (b) at least CJR didn't damn anyone with an "honorable mention"
    (c) as much as it pains me, tumblr might be the most obvious choice
    (d) welcome back!

  3. Freaky, I haven't checked your blog for months and the day I do is the day you post again?

    Move to tumblr. Comments are harder to make and follow (although with some themes I think it's possible to enable disqus), but your content is perfectly suited for it.

  4. So glad to see you posting again!

  5. I would <3 and/or reblog the heck out of your posts if you moved to Tumblr!!!

  6. Cheers to you all. It's been a long time. I hope I remember where I left the knife sharpener.

    I started fencing again recently, as well, without much hope that I'd still be able to wield a foil after a good 15-year hiatus. Turns out you never entirely forget how to bang out a nice tight parry four and follow it up with a poke in the solar plexus.
