Introductions

After a post a few weeks ago turned into a sort of impromptu space for introductions, I thought it might be a good idea to set up an official “Introductions” post, especially for those of you who comment frequently. Any of my readers are welcome and invited to introduce themselves here, but to make this space efficient, I would like everyone to follow a specific format:

1. Your name/internet handle

2. Your background

3. Your current beliefs

4. A bit about you

5. What brings you to Love, Joy, Feminism

Ideally, you should try to use only a sentence or two for each of the above. Otherwise each introduction can get so long that reading it is prohibitive. The idea is to keep it short and succinct, but also informative.

Here is an example:

Hi, I’m Libby Anne! I was raised in a fundamentalist evangelical homeschooling family involved in the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements and active in the Christian Right. Today I am an atheist, a Humanist, a feminist, and a political progressive and am truly enjoying being able to choose and form my own beliefs. I live in the U.S., I’m  a graduate student in my mid-twenties, and I’m raising two children, Sally and Bobby, with my husband Sean. I frequent Love, Joy, Feminism because, well, if I didn’t it wouldn’t exist!

One more thing: feel free to comment on someone else’s introduction, but try to keep it short and make sure it ends up nested under that person’s introductory comment so that someone can easily scroll past it.

I am planning to put a link to this page in my “about” section and keep it alive for new visitors.

Thanks!
