This screenshot depicts the number of visitors I've had at this blog since June, 2008. See all of those totally giant peaks?
Those peaks represent the days that Melissa at Shakesville linked to little old me in one of her Blogarounds.
I know I already link there all the time, but I really just can't say enough good things about Shakesville, or about my favorite feminist blogger, Melissa McEwan.
And despite my piddly links here and there, and even though I wear my teaspoon with pride, I can't shake the feeling that I don't do enough to recognize all the work she puts in over at Shakesville to write tirelessly about feminist and other activist issues and to foster an amazing community of readers (many of whom are kind enough to stop on by at my little corner of the web just because she drops me a link). She's done WAY more for me as a feminist blogger than I could ever even begin to do for her, and I just thought it was time I wrote her a thank you.
I know there's been an outpouring of love for this amazing blogger over the last week (just read the comments here), but I wanted, no-- needed to add to it.
If Judy Chicago updates The Dinner Party to add more place settings, you totally deserve a spot at the table.
