Today, Kelly’s post about how to keep your privacy safe on the internet is featured over at BlogHer. Go check it out if you missed it the first time around.
Because of that, we thought we’d do a quick revisit of who we are and what we do at STACKED.
Welcome new readers who are stopping by STACKED. If this is your first time here or you’ve been away for a while, we thought we’d give you a quick introduction to our blog, our history, and what it is we like to write about here.
STACKED is run by Kelly Jensen and Kimberly Francisco, who met in graduate school for library/information studies at the University of Texas in Austin. The blog started in April 2009, with the goal of writing about books, reading, and other library-ish/book-ish content. We write critical book reviews, explore topics of interest to us in reading and books, and we’re both unabashed feminists in how we think, read, and discuss. We’re passionate about diversity, as well as passionate about matching books to readers. Though the bulk of our reading and blogging focuses on YA lit, we do talk about other categories of writing, too. We also offer up periodic week-long series on different topics of interest — this week, for example, we’ve got 5 guest bloggers talking about different aspects of contemporary/realistic YA fiction, along with accompanying book lists.
A few posts to give you a feel and flavor of what you’ll see around here:
Thanks for stopping by and we hope you stick around, hop in, and/or pass along our blog to others who may be interested.
