So what do we look for? Informative and compelling content, smart navigable design, engaged communities and, of course, a voice that speaks to and for the female reader that’s kept fresh, timely and in-the-know by savvy staffers and impassioned writers. Inspire us to save money, change the world (or just ourselves), climb the ladder or strike out on our own and we’re getting on board. Of course, there are extra fun points for the sites that suck us in and help to pass the often-painful three-oh-clock hour. But here’s the real challenge: Does it have that amorphous and often indefinable quality that inspires us to share–with our social networks and in e-mails and conversations with our moms, sisters, friends and colleagues. - Forbes
The list of 100 includes supersized online A-listers like, oh I don't know... Pinterest. Huffington Post Women. Dooce. Blogging queen A Cup of Jo...
And then there's our lil' one, The Everygirl. She's growing up so fast.
The whole thing is just... Wow.
And as for making the Top 10 Websites for Millennial Women (aka 20-somethings):
I know from experience that we Millennials are a curious bunch. We’re the Girl Power generation, so we’re looking for career content that speaks to us directly, not afterthoughts in the mostly male world of cigars, golf outings and firm back-slaps. Trends show that we’re ambitious: two-thirds (66%) of young women ages 18 to 34 rate career high on their list of life priorities (compared to 59% of men). But we’re also entrepreneurial-minded: a recent study revealed that over half of us plan to start a business in the next five years. But above all we’re creative, web-savvy and largely free-wheeling. More than 75% of us our single, living in urban and suburban locales and looking to play just as hard as we work.
That couldn't describe our readership any better. I mean, essentially they're a bunch of awesome superladies.
So again, a big thank you to everyone. The editors at Forbes. Our readers and everyone who nominated The Everygirl. Our talented, generous contributors. Our funny, sweet, hard-working interns (Caitlin, Chloe, and Mary). My parents, family, friends, and colleagues.
And of course, Danielle.
