Maud and Dana

Two of my favorite bloggers got nice mentions in the Daily News today. Notice I didn’t say favorite female bloggers. Shouts out to Maud and Dana, though Dana deserved a full paragraph in the story, not a passing mention. Also mentioned are three other bloggers I’ve met, Jen, Meg, and Elizabeth. All very nice.

I laughed at the line in the story “some female bloggers [go] by only [their] first name[s] only because of security- or job-related issues.” Perhaps “security” is a nice way of saying “so men are less likely to perv on them, stalk them, or send unsolicited photographs of male anatomy.” Not me, other people! Maud’s and Dana’s alter egos are safe with me.
