Writing and editing and updating and promoting this blog takes about 6 hours a day, 4-6 days a week (yes, even though I post, on average, “only” 3 times a week). While I lead a relatively privileged live, socioeconomically speaking, and have a relatively low self-esteem, psychoemotionally speaking, I am neither so wealthy (yet) nor so self-effacing (anymore) to think I should do this work without compensation. I gladly will, if necessary, as long as I am able; but I do not think I ought to, that it would be more virtuous, that I am unworthy, that there is so little abundance in the world that accepting payment for my work directly denies a “more needy” person funds.

And so, I have set up three ways you can directly support Raising My Boychick:

Buy Yourself a Book

Purchasing books for yourself (or friends or family or students or…) through these affiliate links for Powell’s, Amazon, or, especially recommended for readers outside the USA, The Book Depository sends a (very small) percentage of the purchase my way. Need ideas? Consider buying from The Boychick’s Bookshelf, or check out the other books I have reviewed.

Buy Me a Book

Writers need to read, and I am no exception. While there is much available online for free (including many voices who lack the privilege, though not the genius or will or work, to get book deals), sometimes nothing beats a book. On my Amazon wishlist (Amazon only because Powell’s lacks a way to preserve anonymity of address with their wishlists), you can find feminist classics, the latest on gender research, and, because I am a fangirl as well as an activist, Doctor Who videos. You can also send me books for the Boychick’s Bookshelf; these get preference when it comes to review time. If there is a book you especially wish to send me that is not on the list, let me know and I can add it or we can make alternate arrangements.

Advertise on RMB

Starting January 2011, advertising space will be available for select businesses that meet Raising My Boychick’s high standards for anti-kyriarchy and non-discrimination. Preference will be given for smaller business owned by marginalized populations, especially women. Space is also available for free for select nonprofit organizations and public service announcements. Please contact arwyn at raisingmyboychick dot com for more information.

  3. I love your blog and I’m looking forward to using it as a resource for my own brood one day

  4. Awesome blog! I saw it on an article about ending gender fences, via facebook. I wish there were more people like you.

  5. Hi Arwyn,

    I am both a recent blog reader & twitter follower, but I am just wondering if I could request a follow back of @EarlyBird82? We share a lot of birth, parenting & sexuality interests in common, but as my account is locked, you can’t see any of the many replies I would like to send you :(

    Many thanks,
