I Won a National Award for Blogging and Here’s How It Impacted My Life

Ok, so I won this award this past Saturday night. Not a real lengthy period for reflection, but reflect I will. I already told you what happened when I discovered that I won in this post.

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Today, December 29, marks our 12th anniversary (blogiversary?) here at Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents. 12 is my favorite number for no particular reason, so I’m excited about this.

Why I Started Blogging In 2005? #NaBloPoMo

Today, Let’s Celebrate 11 Years of PghLesbian Blogging!

Rick Santorum internship

I’ve pondered how to mark this occasion. Most blogs last 2-3 years, so 11 is numerically impressive. We’ve also started the AMPLIFY project archives which is a new direction for us. Then we had a complete blog redesign this year AND were voted Best Local Blog by the Pittsburgh City Paper. That’s a lot of […]

Six Bloggers Walk Into an Art Gallery

Six bloggers walked into an art gallery to have a conversation … This was far more fun than I anticipated. I had forgotten quite a bit about some of the history of political blogging during the mid-2000’s. It was fascinating to revisit that time period and have a chance to look through the eyes of […]
