The Personal is Political
I really liked this comment from Christine at Ms Musings about the blog One Good Thing:
Here’s what I love most about OGT: The personal is political in the most meaningful sense of that phrase, as the blog gives the “simple” acts in Leigh Anne’s daily life — from sharing childcare duties to discussing safe sex practices with a customer in the store — a much larger context. It is informative, entertaining and brave.
Though there are occasional digs at Bush & Co., OGT probably would not be on most lists of political blogs. But I think it’s extremely political. Leigh Anne reveals that her entire life is immersed in the social systems continually shifting and changing around us and that her everyday decisions make a difference. OGT not only invites readers to experience one woman’s life, it challenges them to examine their own.
