What a year it’s been! We have lived through so much and for the first time as women in our twenties, we can truly express our deepest thoughts, frustrations, fears and joys. The Fearless Self, has been a platform that has allowed us to not only connect with our friends but also broaden our perspectives by hearing back from those outside our circle of influence. Having a subscribership in four continents has provided us with new insight and created connections with readers from across the globe! We don’t take this lightly!
These are some of the posts that many of our readers connected with. When we say ‘connected’, we don’t necessarily mean that it’s all been positive feedback, sometimes we have received emails and messages over drinks and social media that have expressed disagreements with our opinions. Controversy breeds conversation so keep ‘em coming guys!
When we wrote our F**k You post, we probably didn’t realize how many men (usually exes) read our posts! It was both amusing and insightful to see the reaction that people who had been feeling the same way react to the messaging, and how those that felt slighted by the post reacted was as well.
We wrote a post on why we would rather pay for a cooking class than a pole dancing class and I think it’s safe to say that this article made many question how much of a feminist they were and if they were really defining feminism in the right way. Not sure if you remember this post? Take a read!
Just trying to be a queen in a world full of bad bitches divided our readership. Many people agreed with the underlying message: we should walk, talk, behave and deserve to be treated as queens. What brought about controversy was the user of the word Bitch. We had readers who agreed that women should never be addressed as Bitches and others who felt as though there was nothing wrong with the name … alas the disagreements continue!
One of our celebrated articles was that of loving our authentic woman-selves. resonated with many of our readers as it was almost a coming of age piece where we talked through what it really meant to be authentic as a woman. Just re-reading it makes me so proud of how far we have come!
I am afraid of being alone truly resonated with our twenty-something readers. The post touched on the need for connection and well, just moved so many of you. Take a read here to see what all the commenting was about!
