The women's blogging revolution has taken hold, and this inspirational and practical guide is a celebration of one of the leading women's social networking sites on the web. The idea for Kirtsy.com was born during the 2007 Super Bowl, when the self-described "Kirtsy chicks" tuned out the game and tuned into their collective desire to aggregate cool, relevant, interesting, and practical content provided by women for women. Kirtsy.com quickly became a place to find cool things, read smart scoop, connect with exceptional people, and learn about fabulous products. This guide highlights some of the best postings on the site, including tips and information on travel and leisure, fashion and style, family and parenting, and politics. In addition to illustrating the site's best content, it also tells the story of how Kirtsy.com became such a huge hit with women around the globe.
