The peeps behind, The Awl, have launched a new title: The Hairpin. It’ll be run by Edith Zimmerman and Liz Colville. Not sure yet how it’s distinguishable from The Awl, other than it’s run by two women. Maybe it has a more lady bent to it?
More about us: The Hairpin is a general-interest blog, meaning we’ll be linking to the stories of the day that appeal to us, from politics to makeup to the whereabouts of penis-shaped rainclouds, and is a ladies’ site insofar as it is run by women, will feature writing by women (although guys should feel free to get at us if they see a place for themselves), and will (hopefully!) be read by women. In addition to commentary on the day’s offerings, we’ll also be running original content from our contributors, in the form of text, video, illustration, and maybe even media that hasn’t been invented yet. If you’d like to submit, please do.
I guess this answers any questions about The Awl’s chances of profitability?
