In early 2014, I noticed that more and more often I was hearing, reading and seeing extraordinary women in action. I realized there wasn’t a central place to find out more about these women. And so, with that in mind, I created this site that you are reading right now.

I hope you find the posts interesting, and they give you hope. Click on the categories via the homepage to see women featured, or browse the homepage to see the latest posts. You can make a difference in this world and the women featured here prove it!

    I’d love to write for other people (for money) – how will a “professional Skyword writing portfolio” help me with this?
    Kindness – Robert.

    1. Christy B July 14, 2017

      You can check out Skyword, Robert, and see if it fits with you. I wouldn’t want to tell you one way or the other as different writing platforms suit different writing styles/topics/preferences. I wish you all the best!

    2. robertcday July 14, 2017

      I went on your Skyword site, but couldn’t really see the benefit of it? I was just hoping you would tell me what it’s done for you?
      Kindness – Robert.

    3. Christy B July 14, 2017

      Skyword is a freelance writing platform. I wrote articles for them as part of my writing career. Now I use that link you clicked on to send people to an online resume (essentially) of my writing credits that shows my experience :)

    4. robertcday July 15, 2017

      Ah, okay – sounds like something I should check out properly – thanks for that, Christy. :)
      How’s your day going?

  16. Dan the Young Scientist August 5, 2017

    Hi CHRISTY as a follow up on the August 2017 Guest post over at koolkosherkitchen: Please let me know if interested, then why not also do a post. Please let me know and I will send you an invite. Thanks in advance

    1. Christy B August 11, 2017

      Hi, I don’t submit cooking recipes as part of my blogging but thanks for reaching out to me :) You have a nice blog too!

    2. cookandenjoyrecipes August 11, 2017

      Thanks for the compliment. This guest post need not be cooking. Its ANY niche

    3. Christy B August 13, 2017

      OH I see :) I’ll have to start brainstorming then!

  18. robertcday September 22, 2017

    Ah, seems that I am the wrong gender.
    Can you direct me to the when men inspire blog? ;)
    Kindness – Robert.

    1. robertcday September 22, 2017

      https://whenmeninspire.com/ – This page can’t be displayed!
      Note to self: gap in the market – do something with it! :D

    2. Christy B September 23, 2017

      Haha! Hi Robert :) Yes, absolutely you should! Both genders inspire. My passion is for helping women as this is what I know personally. You go for it – I’ll hit the follow button <3

    3. robertcday September 24, 2017

      A timely comment – thanks, Christy.

    4. Christy B September 25, 2017

    5. robertcday September 25, 2017

      My pleasure. :)
      I just watched a movie called The Hundred-Foot Journey, which I greatly enjoyed. Rival restaurant owners discover that cooperation is much more satisfying and pleasurable than competition. May we all learn such valuable lesson from our lives. Hope you’re having a lovely day, Christy.
      Oh, and the WordPress site I mentioned is now open for viewing. :)

    6. Christy B September 25, 2017

      Robert, sorry to hear you’re closing your blog. Do take care! Stay in touch

    7. robertcday September 25, 2017
