While most people may be focusing on holiday shopping right now, there’s a Kickstarter campaign asking you to think about Valentine’s Day. Nerdy Words caught my eye this week, and I’m excited to share it with you. If you like science, love, and puns, these cards will be right you your alley.
This week’s Kickstartable spoke to me because HELLO WINTER. As soon as the air turns cold, my skin turns dry and cracked. I am always looking for quality skin products that can up my moisture retention rate. Element Botanicals seems to have products that will fit that bill. Their Project Make. More. Grow. will help […]
This week’s Kickstartable caught my eye as I was browsing. It’s a beautifully illustrate book of whimsy, and I do hope you’ll check it out. I asked author Sarah Kaufman a few questions about her project.
Readers who love functional fashion, take a closer look at this week’s Kickstartable. Leah Williams, founder & creative director of the POCKETT Boutique, is working to bring her vision of beautiful clothing with pockets to fruition. She took time out of her busy schedule (filled with a full-time job, family commitments, and starting POCKETT) to […]
Dear Readers, if you ever read Nancy Drew books under your covers with a flashlight because you couldn’t wait to see how it ended, you are not alone. You will also love today’s Kickstartable. Created by 16-year-old Quincy MacShane, this game will appeal to Nancy Drew fans of all ages.
This week’s Kickstartable spoke to me on many levels. The #STEMPrincesses2 Book Project flies in the face of ridiculous political ads featuring giggling women shopping for a political candidate at a dress shop (say what?). It flies in the face of the ridiculous tshirts that say, “I only date superheroes.” It features girls in a […]
When this Kickstarter project was brought to my attention, I knew it was time to bring back the Kickstartable series. Here’s my interview with the team working on The People’s Girls, two brave women who are speaking out about a very important topic.
Has Kickstarter jumped the shark? It seems like there are some projects, currently, that aren’t for art or invention or the greater good. I’m not here to talk about those today. Instead, I’m here to bring your attention to a project that is going to create a documentary that will take people inside the heart […]
Get your clicking fingers ready, because ladyblogland delivered this past week.
In a week filled with misogyny and gun-related sadness, about which our own Coco wrote about brilliantly, I’m going to mainly direct your attention to other stories happening around the world this week.
Raise your hand if you remember watching Reading Rainbow, or if the kids you babysat for did! Reading Rainbow is as iconic as Sesame Street or Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. I was excited when this Kickstarter was brought to my attention, because who doesn’t love LeVar Burton and Reading Rainbow? And yes, the theme song will […]
Trolls made me donate more money.
Most of us are familiar with the cliché of the Jewish mother, who urges everyone to eat, nags her adult kids who don’t call her, and who is the butt of dozens of jokes that make people groan instead of laugh. Although I do love the one about the mom who gives her son two […]
Last spring and summer I wrote a series of posts called “Kickstartable.” Each post featured a worthy Kickstarter project that I thought might be of interest to our readers. This is follow up post to the post featuring the Empowerment Project.
A co-worker and a good friend, Jane Irwin has been a big source of inspiration and motivation to me. Someone who knows her stuff, and with a personality that gears towards the free exchange of information and her experiences, Jane is a prime example of dedication and introspection in both her life and her graphic novels.
