This was a myspace comment I received a couple of days ago. Nadia lives in the United States, like me. People like Nadia inspire me to keep updating and adding to my Riot Grrrl Online website. I had to share this because it has inspired me to keep being interested in riot grrrl and to keep on going with the riot grrrl website.

Hi, Greta! Thanks for the add. I must say it is awesome having all these Grrrl-related links in one place. When I first got interested in Riot Grrrl culture about a year ago, I could barely find anything!
Hope I can find time to write something for the blog soon.
As for Nadia's quote: "When I first got interested in Riot Grrrl culture about a year ago, I could barely find anything!", I know how she feels. That's how I felt a couple of years ago, when I first created Riot Grrrl Online. Back then, It seemed that alot of my favorite riot grrrl websites from the late 1990's to early 2000's had died out. That's why I created the Riot Grrrl Online website. I was interested in riot grrrl and wanted to show my support and love of the movement, so Riot Grrrl Online was born.
GET INVOLVED! I encourage others that are interested in riot grrrl, feminism, or whatever your interest might be, to get involved with it. YOU can get involved by making a zine, make a website, create a group/community on a social network about your interest, join other groups/communities on social networks, etc. I'm sure you can probably think of more ideas than the ones I just mentioned.
