For those of you new to this blog, welcome to The Scarlett Woman. And to loyal readers of the previous iteration of this blog, The Early Bird Catches the Worm, over the past four years: I hope you like the new me!
When I first started blogging, I envisioned my musings to be a cutting edge commentary on books, magazines and pop culture, with the title of The Early Bird being somewhat wishful thinking on my part.
As my politics started to evolve, so did the blog, becoming more of a place for me to discuss pop culture and social commentary with a feminist edge.
Over the past year or two, I’ve been focusing more on freelance pursuits and as a result the regularity of my blogging has suffered. I knew I wanted to change the focus of a blog and tie it in more with my “brand” (whatever that is!) and I finally realised that I was never going to come up with the $1000s required to hire a professional to redesign the blog so I took the plunge and tried to navigate the world of encoding solo. A big thanks goes to Zoe Meagher who’s been doing artwork for me since 2011 and who helped The Scarlett Woman come to life.
