I heard about a new site launching the other week when I found a photographer I recently worked with through her blog which I found through another blog which I found through the ever-fabulous Bright Bazaar.
And that is how the rabbit warren that is the internet works.
Anyway, Danielle's (the photographer) enthusiasm for the project was palpable and the holding page for the site was enviously pretty. So I watched the space and it's just launched.
It's meant to be a resource of sorts for, well, the everygirl.
Whether she is searching for her dream job or a new city to call home;
is saving up for a down payment or a trip to Europe;
is learning to cook or speak another language,
she wants a little guidance. She wants to be inspired.
- to provide readers with fresh, in-depth perspectives and detailed advice
- to ask the questions no one else does
- to share real stories from real women about the steps they took to make it happen
- to always be budget-friendly
She is The Everygirl.
This is for her.
The Everygirl, LLC, is the newest online resource helping shape the creative, career-driven woman to experience her life better lived. It is the inspiration to help you achieve your dreams, whatever they may be. Whether it’s how to incorporate a little creativity into your day or motivating you to seek out your dream job, The Everygirl is for you. It is our mission and hope for you to use The Everygirl site to be inspired, but also to take action to become the woman who believed you could, so you did!
I love the sound bite from co-founder Alaina, because, holy bob, did I feel like this when I graduated with nary a clue or connection:
In all honesty, The Everygirl is a site I wish I had when I was 22, graduating from school without a single connection to call on, and wondering: Wow, what next? Where do I begin? - Alaina Kaczmarski
The archive of content isn't massive right now which makes sense as it has just launched. But there's still enough to browse and get a feel for what they're doing. It's part blog, part professional encyclopedia, part online magazine.
I love the logo and the handy PDFs (here and here so far) to help you set up your life properly, because, let's be honest, no one really tells us how to budget or build a working kitchen. At least there aren't many classes on that stuff in school and, well, I didn't learn those things at home. I'm sort of just learning them now. At 31. Years after the world assumes you already possess all such skills.
So make yourself a cup of tea and have a nose around The Everygirl.
I look forward to watching it grow.
