As we say in our masthead, we’re a daily blog for bookish, clever women. Would you like to know what goes on behind the scenes to bring all this wordy goodness to you every day? Read on!
Ladyreaders, this one is for you. Manreaders, we might bring you in on this topic later. We’re assembling a panel discussion for women of all ages to compare and contrast our experiences, education and expectations about and surrounding sex. Being as it’s 2011 and we are masters of technology, we’re going to assemble our panel […]
I always knew a gun would alter my life. I have no idea how I knew, but I did. One of the most vivid dreams I ever had was when I was just 18 or19 years old. I saw myself, clearly older, sitting in a chair, rocking a child, and I was staring into the […]
Fellow ladybloggers and regular purveyors of hilarity The Hairpin hit internet gold this week with Women Laughing Alone with Salad.
Holy hopping bishops on pogo sticks, this has been a whirlwind of a day! Not bad for our first day in the new house. Sure, we went off book around 10 this morning and we’ve been bumping into stuff left and right, but I think we still managed to look pretty good out front. Today […]
Hello! I can see lots of people have hopped in to the buddypress features and started playing, that’s fantastic and probably the fastest way to learn how everything works and how to use it. We’re all still learning, too (I just found a new thing five minutes ago) so we will figure out how to […]
After a rather adventuresome series of events, Persephone Magazine is back. We’re on a brand new server and we found ourselves this shiny new outfit to wear. The site is chock full of improvements and upgrades and changes, oh my. Later today (around 3) we’ll have a detailed post explaining everything, with pictures. For now, […]
I’m giving everyone the week off, we’ve been working our fingers off over here since October. Plus we have a few writers who are still out of town, a few stuck in the snow and a couple of sickies as well. So we’re taking the week off and we’ll be back on Monday, January 4th […]
Ho ho ho, readers! Time for our final post of the day before we go off to celebrate. If you’re escaping the family for a few moments of internet time, a poll question and a note on next week’s schedule are after the break.
We’re keeping it super mellow today, just a few posts for those of you spending a little of your holiday with your computer (and hopefully a big slice of pecan pie.) I have a lovely daily goodie after the break to warm your hearts and stuff.
If ever a fella needed meme-ified, it’s the guy behind the cut. I found him on www.morguefile.com, home of all sorts of delightful free images. Wow me with you wit, readers!

We’re only posting until 3:30 today, and tomorrow we’re outta here at 1, but we still have two more daily goodies lined up for you this week. Today, in honor of Santa gluing the last tiny eyelashes on all the dolls he’s about to deliver, I found some great pictures of dolls on Flickr.
We double dog dare you to go tell someone special just how much they mean to you and why. It’s the holidays, even we can’t be cynical. Have a great Wednesday evening and we’ll see you in the morning.
