Elsewhere, badgerbag  has suggested starting Reddit, Delicious and other forums/tags/whatever to give more attention to links and sites on the topic of gender and media (including our own). I also had a recent conversation with Melissa Silverstein from Women & Hollywood and some other women I hope will be joining us here about using Twitter, Facebook and other social networking services for the same purpose.

These are good ideas; they're how an awful lot of people have boosted their traffic through the roof, gotten their ideas out and made money if their sites are set up to do so.

LiveJournal pretty much launched Hathor. StumbleUpon has been really good to us, too. We've made the front page of Reddit once, and got 20k visitors in one day. 

As far as I know, the trick with these services is that you need a lot of people reading the recommendations you make. That's where we can help each other.

How about it? Who's willing to work together to form little groups on services like these and help promote our sites and our causes?

Definitely! Though I honestly have no idea how sites like Reddit and StumbleUpon work. Guess I need to get with the program, huh?
