Twitter GNO: Define Feminist

Hey everyone!

Join us for Twitter GNO!

Due to fabulous response last week, and requests to try it again this week...

I present Mr. Linky for Tuesday Sept. 23rd (See times below) sure to follow everyone on the list after Mr. Linky!

New this week, hurry follow them!

You have three choices...

1) add your blog URL to the Mr. Linky list above--and we will check there to find your Twitter username!


2) add your Twitter's easy... Open your twitter 'profile' page and cut and past the URL at the top of that page into Mr. Linky above.


3) add both? Be a rebel. Stand out. Name one your website, and Name the other your twitter username?

And then...leave me a comment of course! Come back here to add any new twitter gals to follow. Plus let all your bloggy friends know so they can join.

Here's an easy way... Take this button and add it to the end your most recent post.


Here's my latest plan...this could change and evolve, stick with me, I'm still learning how to best go about this...

I'd like to present a couple topics for GNO? I'm sure it will end in discussions about the relative benefits of Oreos versus Red Vines...but that's the beauty of it all isn't it?

~Topic for Tuesday's GNO~

"I am a Feminist"

I know.

Shocking isn't it?

I love female authors:
Barbara Kingsolver, Ayn Rand, Margaret Atwood and Alice Walker. I've read nearly all of their books. I am addicted to strong women protagonists. I would so love to meet Dagny.

However. I don't always look like a feminist in the standard negative definition.

I quit my job as a molecular biologist (fancy name for genetic engineer), to stay home with my then 18mo old. I never looked back.

I love to bake. I love trying new recipes, the whole nine yards, I own a Kitchenaid stand mixer for crying out loud?

I knit, crochet, cross stitch, --and maybe you've seen my sewing?

But...and here's the TWITTER girls night out topic...

"What is your definition of a Feminist?"

And if that's too meaty for you..I'd also like to talk about Do you have it? Do you use it? Anyone who wants to learn how to set it up, we'll be talking about it live Tuesday Night at:

8PM Oregon/California.. (I'll be a bit late so start without me...)

9PM Utah, Idaho...

10PM Chicago/Arkansas..

11PM East Coasters...

And don't forget to 'Follow' all of the twitter Divas from last week...

You can find them here.

Yeah! I am first to RSVP to GNO. I am starting to feel like I am in the military with all these acronymns LOL.

So... my twitter URL is How do I put that in Mr. Linky? It automatically linked to my blog. I have a 'follow me' link there, so it should be cool, but if I want to include it in the Mr. Linky list, please to explain how!

This is going to be sooooo much fun. Was going to go out and buy a new party dress, but rethought it and decided on new pjs instead :).

I posted a sticky note on my blog for a double announcement. Go check it out :).

Um yeah... I realized the mistake after I posted it. Natch. Blame it on that scary auto-fill program that put in the last address I used for Mr. Linky. Blech. Anyway! I will be joining everyone for Twitter GNO. See ya then.

I added both, because I'm a rebel...


Glad I have something to blog about tomorrow. :-)

Ahhh... All this fun stuff for the twitterers... What about us none-twitterers? Isn't this discriminatory? And I'd have such fabulous things to say - love the topic of the day, of course. The wonderful thing about the word 'feminism' is that it can mean so many different things. You've always been a feminist in my book - and any other books that matter! The word has just been co-opted to mean something bad - like 'liberal' or 'media' or 'short' ... (ooops- how'd that last one sneak in there?). See? But that's all the cool contributions you'll get from me,

sulking in the non-twittering world, Melissa

Since it's 11 pm my time I'm going to try to be there. Everyone should be in bed, and I can actually do something for myself. LOL
My twitter name is moonsanity and I added my blog to Mr. Linky:)

Are y'all gonna tag your tweets? If you add #gno to the end of each tweet, then it makes it easier to follow the conversation. You can even use some twitter apps to filter so that ONLY tweets with #gno in them show up.

This is my first GNO Twitter... Should fun!

Mrs. Brownstone @ XBOX Wife said...

What a fun idea! I was born to have "followers"! I can be a good follower, too!

See you there! Great blog, btw. Love your wit!

Oh my heck! I was featured. And it didn't hurt or anything!
