These My Bitches: Year In Review


When I started These My Bitches, I had no idea if A) anyone would do it, or B) anyone would read it. Well, turns out, most people will do it and a lot of people have read it. So, thanks! As long as you're willing to keep reading, I'll keep posting.

Nominations! I'm thinking about changing it up in 2017 and adding a 'Nominate a Bitch' feature. There are so many awesome women that I don't have a direct connection to. If you would like to nominate a Bitch:

1) you will be responsible for writing their intro
2) candidate should identify as female (sorry fellows, except not sorry because the whole world is yours)
3) email me your nomination.

*If I know the person, there's a good chance I've already asked them. You'd be surprised how many people can't participate. More on this below.

Here are the top ten viewed Bitches!

Biggest yay moment:  a Bitch got a promotion after her boss read her post.

In addition to the one promotion, a lot of Bitches have seen an uptick in their Etsy sales and website clicks, and a few Bitches have gotten work/jobs out of this. Yay! That was the point! I've also been able to connect a lot of Bitches to friends who are in similar careers, have questions, need an introduction, etc.

Biggest nay moment:  a Bitch got called into her legal department after her boss read her post.

Since then, I've started warning my corporate Bitches to make sure this is cool with their companies, which thank goddess, because a few people checked and they were not allowed to do this. One almost-crisis happened, but thanks to that, many more were averted.

To the 45 Bitches who have done this with me -- I appreciate you so hard. Thank you. There are three different questionnaires and the one for artists/business owners takes the longest to complete, and then you have to round up pictures. It's a job and I'm grateful to those of you who were able to do it, as well as those of you who wanted to, but couldn't. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

See you in 2017!

P.S. Don't forget, send me your nominations.
