Happy 10th Birthday Cow Hampshire. My first post on this blog was made on March 16, 2006.
Initially I wasn’t sure about the direction of my blog, but within a few days I was already writing about women in my family, and seeking my creative compass.
Thank you Kathi, for inspiring me to write, to blog, to look at the world from a woman’s perspective, to focus on our collective memories and important stories. As long as we remember, as long as we share–we will show our children that women were, and are, essential to history. We are forever sisters.

Editor’s Note: I was a bit conflicted on whether to celebrate my blog “Birthday” vs “Anniversary.” There has been a great deal written about when to use each of these terms. Was my first blog post a birth, or an event/occasion. Deciding that Cow Hampshire is less an event, and more an entity to me, I’ve selected to celebrate the day as a birthday.
