Hola the blogging chiquita’s…
Lookie here…a little opportunity to strut your talented stuff….
Yes, this a little punt.
No, I wasn’t asked to punt it.
But I figure, if I bitch about SAArse and Truwarts then I can point you in the direction of something rather nice too!
(And Bov, please try and keep your scathing comments to an absolute minimum.)
….A Brand New Collection of Urban Women’s Writing
Friday night. The bar is filled with smart, sexy, sussed women fresh from a week hard at work. They have cocktails in hand and are deep in conversations with girlfriends, lovers or potential new partners. They are Urban Chicks, women who live in fast paced, traffic choked, money hungry, concrete landscapes. Landscapes where working hard is as much a priority as playing hard. They?re not superwomen. They’re able to laugh at themselves, even as they struggle through their experiences.
In recent years, the blogging phenomenon has allowed internet users, male and female alike, to explore the stories behind the relationships, with work and their individuality. Their stories are told with candour and humour.
Urban Chick: A Users Guide plans to showcase these kinds of stories
If you’re a 20 to 30 something, and you feel you fit into this category, then we?re looking for your stories. Tell us about a lives of these women and their daily battles with their crazy night out, a skewed work experience or a tangled romantic relationship using your intellect, wisdom and wit.
