My sister has encouraged me to continue the cup of tea blogs. You know, the ones I write randomly first thing in the morning as I enjoy my caffeine fix. I hesitated and told her that not all my just-waking-up thoughts are about women’s rights and right now I feel it’s important to continue spreading that particular message. I am easily distracted and do not want to deviate onto other topics on my activist radar just yet. Unfortunately what happens is I’ll start a new project and then my original one does not receive my full attention and it takes longer to accomplish the end-goal. I don’t want that to happen with my fight for women’s rights.
With the cons well in mind, I thought about the pros to writing no matter what my thoughts. First, it would keep me in the writing spirit. Second, it would give the readers a chance to know I have other interests and feel passionately about many social and economic issues. Third, maybe I’ll think of something funny to say and get a laugh out of you 🙂
Lucky for me (and our fight for women’s rights), this morning’s coffee has found me posting comments on a Huffington Post’s Crime page article about Todd Akin’s remarks. Since I’ve already written my thoughts for the day in various posts, I’ll copy and paste them for you to enjoy in one place. This keeps me discussing women’s rights (my current project) and keeps me blogging, so you all have a chance to get to know me better.
