A Crash Course in xoJane

So many of you are new around here, so I thought an introduction was in order.

A lot of you are new around here (welcome! thanks for coming! I'm so glad you could make it!), so I thought it might be a good time to do a little crash course on who we are and what we are doing here.

We started xoJane.com a little over a year ago (god, time doesn't fly at all). I came from Sassy magazine and Jane magazine and this is basically a repeat of my one good idea -- media that treats women/people with respect and has a blast doing it.

A big part of that is telling our personal stories about political issues. Which means you get to know A LOT about us as you go along. Here are some of the best examples I can think of in xoJane's short and storied past:

Meet Emily

Meet Lesley

Meet s.e.

Meet Gala

Meet India

Meet Mandy

Meet Julieanne

Meet Daisy

Meet Hannah

Meet Helena





and, most recently, Shauna.

If you are new, feel free to introduce yourselves. And if you've been around a while, I'd love to hear what your favorite/defining xoJane stories have been. It is perfectly fine to suggest one of your own posts, because, as Mandy says, #ownyourshit.
