A Heroine Content Goodbye

Hi everybody,

I'm writing to let you know something that's already pretty obvious. Heroine Content ran from July 2006 to May 2012, and it's done now. Grace wrapped up her involvement in mid-2011, and my 2012 has been so exhausting that I can't manage any regular intellectual or creative pursuits beyond parenting and work. If I do come back to blogging at some point in the future, I'll surely be discussing movies, feminism, anti-racism, and things that blow up, but it's fairly certain that it won't be here.

I am going to miss this space and community so much. Shutting down this blog has been much harder than shutting down my personal blog. I was so pleased that for six years, there was a dedicated space for critical discussion of this entertainment niche. I have always been so grateful when you showed up to read, comment, and guest post. I've learned so much from this group of people I've never even seen. Thank you. And I'm sorry I couldn't keep it going.

The site should stay up as-is for a very long time, since my domain name renewals are automatically billed to my stable credit card in fairly long increments. If I do come back to blogging somewhere else, I'll post a link here so it can pop up in your reader if you stay subscribed. If it doesn't happen after six months, unsubscribe, and I'll see you around somewhere else. If you don't know that I'm reading your blog already, leave me the link in the comments so I can wander by.

All the best,


Thanks for all the great posts. I've really enjoyed reading your perspective and analysis. I totally understand the reasons for closing this site up.


This blog helped me understand my problems with many movies, voicing my issues better than I ever could. Or at least had the patience to try to describe.

Any suggestions on where we should go for movie reviews based on racism, sexism, heterosexism, and other -isms?

although i figured this was coming down the pike, it's still sad to see written confirmation that you're ending blogging activities. this was a great space - so much so, in fact, that it was the first place i turned when i saw Skyfall last week and it left me with so. much. irritation.

best of luck with all your endeavors!

Sorry to see you go. Good luck and good hunting.

Thanks for all your work!

Well, foo! I am really sad to see you go, though as a doctoral student I sure understand the pressure of no free time. Please feel free to swing by my blog and make your wonderfully articulate comments there, should you have a moment to breath. ;)
