Editorial Reviews


"These women are so open, friendly, and familiar that the book felt like a cozy coffee shop chat between friends. It inspired me not only to become a better blogger, but to really open myself up so that I could take in all the details of life that these women have managed to capture. I can only hope that this wonderful collection will have a second volume—and soon!"  —

More About the Author

Joanne Bamberger is an author, journalist, political and media strategist/analyst, and "recovering" attorney. She is the publisher/editor in chief of the award-winning digital magazine of women's commentary, The Broad Side.

Joanne's first book was the Amazon bestseller "Mothers of Intention: How Women & Social Media are Revolutionizing Politics in America", the first book to examine the rise of women in social media, how they've used online tools for change, and the uphill battle women still face in the world of politics and social activism.

A new media expert and authority on the political involvement of women and mothers, Joanne is a regular contributor to USA Today, the San Francisco Chronicle, and The Huffington Post. She was also a regular contributor to POLITICO's Arena and AOL's Politics Daily.

Her commentary has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Good Morning America, and XM Radio POTUS, among others. She's been featured in More Magazine, Ms. Magazine, the Washington Post, Fast Company, and other national publications.

In 2014, Joanne was named to the Forty over 40 "disruptor" list for her work in amplifying women's political voices in America. In 2013, she received the Advocacy Innovator award from Campaigns and Elections Magazine. She has been named to many top political blogger lists, was nominated for the prestigious Social Media Award by the Women's Media Center in 2011, and was included Working Mother Magazine's Most Powerful Women in Social Media list.

Joanne is a sought after speaker, who has participated in panels at many conferences, including Netroots Nation, the Feminist Majority Foundation, EMILY's List, Activism+Media+Policy Summit, BlogHer, and many other events. She has advised a variety of political and institutional clients on social media strategy and the role women online can play in advancing agendas.

Joanne first gained attention for her (now-defunct) political blog PunditMom, which was one of the first internet spaces to feature writing about the intersection of women/mothers online and political/social activism.

When she's not thinking about women and politics, she enjoys a nice, cold glass of Chardonnay and planning her next travel experience with her husband and teen daughter.

Format: Hardcover
For anyone who has wondered what women read online, this book is for you. Kirtsy Take A Bow is a pretty coffee table book that you should keep next to your laptop as you peruse the book and the web for wonderful sites that women love. Some are crafty. Some are foodie. Some are about babies. Some are about dating. There's something for every woman who is curious and creative. It may inspire you to build you own site as well. [Full Disclosure: My blog, Cupcakes Take The Cake is mentioned.]

where did the basis of this book go. It was based on a website community and the site is now defunct?
