I spend entirely too much time click-clickity-clicking all over the internet. I read a number of blogs, many that have no resemblance to anything in my real life. I just enjoy the author’s style or want to understand someone else’s experience of the world. And then there are the things I stumble upon and wonder how I ever lived without them. Like Persephone Magazine.

It’s an amazing collaboration of at least a dozen women, most with strong feminist views. The tagline for Persephone mag is “Martinis are gin. Ellipses are three dots. There are certain truths in the universe.”

Amen.

The writers are a great mix of married and single, straight and lesbian, mothers and childless. They’re a cross-section of us. Even when I don’t agree with the opinion presented, I appreciate the author’s intelligence and humor.

A sampling of my fave recent articles:
Thank God For British TV  Great suggestions for your Netflix queue because regular television will bore you into a coma.

Breastfeeding in Public  This one proves we haven’t come very far since I last breastfed an infant more than 10 years ago. Sigh.

The Rock Star Economist  Wonder about all the hubbub surrounding Thomas Piketty? Here ya go. Bonus: writer performs a fun original song about her love for Mr. Piketty.

Standard warning about falling f-bombs. Duck and cover! So now you’ve got something to do this weekend whether you’re hiding from hurricanes or heatwaves or your mother. Enjoy.
