Three Awesome Things

This was an absolutely amazing essay by my friend Sarah Rees Brennan about sexism and self promotion.  Sarah is one of the funniest people I know, but she leaves the humor behind to tackle this difficult topic and open a discourse.  Go read and spread the word.

Writers, there is a lesson here in battling to the end.

And, finally, this is one of the coolest things I’ve seen to date.  It’s a visual representation of linkages between Amazon products.  I have it currently cued up to my books.  Check it out!

  1. I’ve honestly never even thought about self-promotion as it relates to gender. I didn’t realize men were getting the better end of things in this area, although it happens in most areas of life, so I shouldn’t be surprised. I just told my boss the other day I felt like I was paid less than some of the other employees because I was female. So I guess this is a problem.

    I loved the mouse video! And the visual with the books was so cool. I tried it on mine. 🙂
