Okay, so as you’ll notice we’re missing quite a few (read: a majority) of us, so sadly WAM! was far from a full meet up of Feministe bloggers — oh, how I wish! But, all the same, after nearly a year of blogging here, it was totally awesome getting to finally meet both Jill and Jack in person. They are, I must say, just as great and fun in “real life” as they are online, if not more so. Seriously. I absolutely adored them.
WAM! was a chance for me to meet all kinds of awesome feminist bloggers and activists in person for the first time. I got to hang out with one of my best Twitter pals, Sally. I got to finally meet my co-panelists from the conference, Marcella Chester, Ashley Burczak, and Ashwini Hardikar. I got a hug from Latoya Peterson, discussed favorite Beatles albums with Julia Serano (!), sat next to Samhita Mukhopadhyay in a panel, and met Miriam Perez, Veronica Arreola, (my YMY editor!) Jaclyn Friedman, Deanna Zandt, and so many others who I’m sure I’m horribly forgetting.
I wish I had gotten to spend more time with all of them, but really, who can ask for more than that? Thanks to everyone who attended for a truly great time. And an even bigger thanks to WAM! and the blog readers who donated to the fund that made it possible for me to go!
