    Yes, great article, about feminist blogging in the US. It’s a shame that the writer doesn’t talk about one of the great joys of feminist blogging on the WORLD WIDE web i.e. the conversations that involve people from the UK and Australia and Canada and New Zealand and India and…

    Well, obviously. This is New York. Did you forget none of those places exist while living in the NY vortex?. Must be a problem with the space-time continuum thingie.

    It’s a great article!

    Yeah, that’s a weird thing, Deborah, and one hardly unique to this article. US feminist blogs often won’t link to other blogs, or discuss issues from elsewhere in any kind of in depth way, where the reverse isn’t true. The feminist blogosphere seems really separated by that set of borders. I wonder how we get acknowledged, broader those conversations, get a sense of the feminist blogosphere as it actually stands, and get US feminist bloggers to care more.

    Congrats to the featured bloggers!

    I hear you, Deborah and Chally, on the irritation of having the worldwide conversation yet again overlooked. I do get the NYC vortex thing though.

    I was also disappointed that the article only focused on US-centric blogs. While I agree with Chally that a lot of US feminist blogs don’t discuss issues from other countries, there are certainly ones that do (including Gender Across Borders, which I write for), as well as loads of feminist blogs based outside the US. It would have been great to see some of those voices represented.

    I AM surprised that Feministe writers weren’t featured. Wah wah, indeed!

    That was an awesome article and great photos! I’m so happy to see some of my favorite bloggers getting noticed by the “mainstream.”

    But ha, forget about world bloggers—I think all but one or two of them are based in NYC. And 3/4ths of them were at one point at Jezebel. So yeah.
