Blog initiative for International Women’s Day
Calling all women bloggers (and men) who would like a boost for their blog on International Women's Day.
Here at Attract Readers we want to celebrate this event by picking up the pen rather than the sword.
Yes we know you can't blog with a pen, but we want to honour those women who cannot voice their opinion and make it public.
In the past this applied to well known female authors who felt they had to write using a man's name. Think of George Eliot and the Bronte's. Today this applies to many women who do not have access to education, to their own opinion, nor the technology which would let them blog.
Encouraging others to blog and get their voice heard
So because we are fortunate to be able to blog, we want to encourage others to do the same. It costs nothing to join us but if you wish you can make a donation to Womankind, a charity we support.
It can sometimes be difficult to blog and in our 5-day challenge we will provide a supportive community as well as some inspiration and daily writing prompts.
Although the actual challenge doesn't start until Monday 6 March, the first email goes out on Friday 3 March. Far better to receive our first email with information about the private Facebook group which runs in March as well as some ideas and writing stimulus.
Lots of women have joined already. More about how it works and how to sign up can be found here. What are you waiting for?
