Come WAM! It Up With Me This Weekend


Ah, Saturdays. Ludacris thinks they’re good for “sticky icky cky [oh ohhhh]“. Rebecca Black doesn’t think they’re quite as good as the day that comes before them.

As for me, I think they’re a great time for hangin with dozens of feminist media makers to talk blogging, activism, feminism, journalism, and everything in between.

That’s right, folks. Vanessa mentioned this in Monday’s “What We Missed“, but it bears repeating: WAM! It Yourself has begun this week, and we couldn’t be more stoked. I’ll be speaking on a Feminist Blogging panel on Saturday along with Andrea Plaid of Racialicious, Irin Carmon of Jezebel, and Amanda Marcotte of Pandagon.

So whether you blog, write, report, tweet, make films while feminist, or just want to learn how to understand big trends in new media, branch out into a new beat, pitch and get published, use social media for activism, begin doing data journalism, or bring a feminist perspective to your publication, you need to be at WAM!NYC’s 2011 Conference, Saturday, March 26, in lower Manhattan.

It’ll sell out–register today!

And for folks who aren’t in New York, you can check out other WAM! It Yourself events here.
