Introducing the Society of Literary Ladies
Hello friends! Today I have the pleasure of announcing a new series I will be beginning here at A Lantern In Her Hand, distinguished by the rather simple but sufficiently self-explanatory moniker of: The Society of Literary Ladies.
So, what will this entail? Well, I've been thinking of how this blog has changed, and 'blossomed', if you will, from a sort of online journal where Emma rambles about movies and books and history and stuff to a *I hope* more organized outlet where Emma still rambles about the things she loves....with significantly more tact and finesse. Or at least, the finesse part. I'm still working on the tact.
Anyway, that's not really what we're talking about here; back to the subject at hand. What really inspired me to blog in the first place was reading the blogs of all you lovely ladies, and you continue to inspire me so much. Since most of the friends I've made through this incredible and slightly unconventional journey of blogging are, like myself, writers and bibliophiles, I've decided to organize a sort of club (for lack of a better word-- no wait, there IS a better word)-- a society. A circle of friends (including y'all and me) who love writing and reading and books in general. Every month I'm planning on hosting an interview with a fellow reader/writer, so we can share with each other our love of literature and also spread the word about other charming blogs that need to be read and appreciated. So, what say you, my friends?
If you are a reader and a writer who's interested in being interviewed, please don't hesitate to let me know! Really, this will only be a success if y'all are interested. I have an idea of some literary ladies I'd like to feature, but like I said, I really would appreciate your feedback and willingness to participate. I think this will be very diverting, and a good way to spread the word about other people's blogs.
What happens when you're interviewed: I'll send you the questions, you'll answer them cleverly, and the interview will be posted here on A Lantern In Her Hand. You can put the society badge (above) on your blog sidebar or wherever you please, your interview will be listed on the Society of Literary Ladies page (which as yet to be materialized-- be patient), and you'll get to see your name in print. Of course, if you're a blogger, you've already seen your name in print countless times, so it may not hold as much charm as it used to. But still. ;-P
Bluestocking: a woman having intellectual or literary interests.
