Awesome Women On The Internet

women-on-internetSince I’ve already talked about how #WCW (Women Crush Wednesday) is in supporting our women role models, I thought I’d make a list of some of my crushes, in particular, the ones on the Internet who have wormed their way into my heart. The women I write about in this blog post are funny, warm, charismatic, or informative, and often a combination of those traits.

Stephanie Pearl-McPhee of Yarn Harlot
I started reading Pearl-McPhee’s blog, and subsequently listening to her podcast, ten years ago. (Good Lord, has it been that long?) I would sit knitting in bed in my college dorm while listening to her hilarious stories about her family, writing the blog, and of course, knitting. The podcast might not be that interesting to those of the non-knitting persuasion, but reading her blog is definitely worth it for her interesting thoughts on family, life, and pets.

Hannah Hart of My Drunk Kitchen
I’m sure there are a few of us who have decided to cook something up while imbibing certain beverages. And we might have thought we were absolutely hilarious when doing it. But Hart’s vlogs are actually hilarious. In Hart’s “My Drunk Kitchen” episodes, she learns new recipes and techniques while drinking. The result is funny yet you might even learn something! She’s often joined by guests, usually friends, but she’s also had actual chefs like Jamie Oliver as guests.

Jen of From Head to Toe
One of the sweetest ladies I regularly watch is Jen with her blog and video podcast From Head to Toe. If you like using or learning about makeup, this is the channel to watch, especially if you’re of Asian descent like me. Personally, I get pretty sick of watching tutorials by people who don’t understand our unique skin tone and shapes, but Jen understands! From general video tutorials to makeup reviews, Jen does it all!

Megan and Crystal of #SWOONSTEP
By women for women! Swoonstep is a podcast run by Megan and Crystal who talk about their favorite musicians—who happen to be women—and often features other musicians who talk about their musical interests, whether it’s about net labels, indie rock, and music crushes. In an industry that’s still very male dominated, including the critics who write about it, it’s refreshing and invigorating to listen to passionate, talented ladies who are also super into other passionate, talented ladies.
