Two years ago today I put up my very first post. It may not surprise you to find out that it was of Batgirl.
I’m not really sure how many people visited the site that day, I didn’t even get a counter until a month or so later. Probably because I didn’t think I’d be doing this more than a few months.
My goal in starting the blog was simple - raise the visibility of the awesome female characters at DC Comics. The focus has expanded a little bit but that is still a huge reason why I do this.
And given that focus, it’s been an interesting and wild ride particularly this past year.
I’m tired and instead of writing a long post I’m taking the lazy person’s way out and just posting a bunch of stats.
