Blog Chicks is a community for like-minded female bloggers to share their experiences and discuss topics relevant to them.
Blog Chicks was created in 2007 by Leigh Sundstrom when she assembled the first version of the Australian Women Bloggers directory, showcasing the amazing and talented range of female bloggers we have in Australia. From parenting to business, lifestyle to history; you’re bound to find a blog you’ll love reading.
The directory has now grown to over 3,000 bloggers, and the Blog Chicks team has grown by two – with Rah Gardiner and Liz Pulo coming on board in 2012.
Blog Chicks runs under a strict no-bullshit policy. There is zero tolerance for negativity, gossip or toxic energy in our groups or at meetups. The group is supportive, encouraging and a safe place for new and old bloggers alike.
Blog Chicks is a hobby only, and there is no intent to create a profit through the community. Any monies earned through advertising or affiliate links are used to offset the costs of maintaining the community.
Leigh has been blogging and moderating communities in various forms since 2004. She now makes a living from her passion, which offsets her evenings spent Blog Chicks’ing and looking at cat gifs.
Rah has been blogging since 2005. She has a particular affection for cats, cupcakes and Barack Obama.
The baby of the group, Liz remembers writing on a private LiveJournal account back in Year 12 (2003). Lucky for you, that account under her first internet pseudonym ‘Cherryish’ was deleted in the great LiveJournal cleanout of 2012. Phew!
Liz currently doesn’t have a blog due to her tendency to delete everything she’s ever written, but if you’re lucky she may have updated Lizosaurus since this bio was written.
Jarod is Liz’s husband and has the graphics and web skills that help bring the brand together.
He has occasionally been seen at the odd meetup, but he’s so damn nice no one seems to mind.
