I love Mashable and not just because Pete is such a cutie or because they have things like ‘popcorn hour’… but because they have such great content, like this: http://mashable.com/2012/04/13/tumblr-who-needs-feminism 

Content you want to share. So I shared it with my friends on facebook of course but it also reminded me that I had a blog… erm… where I could share this kind of stuff… where does the time go?!

What a fabulous project this is: http://whoneedsfeminism.tumblr.com

So simple and so powerful! Love the pictures… reminded me a little of that old Bob Dylan video with his lyrics on cards but obviously nothing like that at all… anyway… highlights that as with everything there is always an individual perspective, interpretation, motivator… does it highlight or is it just another example of the current culture?

Back in the 80’s Madonna shocked and amused us with her cone bras, underwear made outerwear, and took control of her image and identity and led the way for what has become pretty common place nowadays. Everyone seems to create and manage their own ‘personal brand’ on a range of social networking platforms these days… still not sure what I want mine to be… but I guess it’s there already in a way, isn’t it?! A tree is a tree even if it’s not called a tree? Do I need to label my brand? Should I be managing it more mindfully?

I love this word ‘mindful’. Notice a lot of friends using it lately… one talking about mindful eating, another about mindful happiness… well, better than mindlessness… is it a female thing? Consciously deciding to be ‘mindful’ of things, behaviours and attitudes? Curious…

might try mindful blogging… just need to remember it’s here first 😉
