Girls Can't WHAT?

One of our new favorite sites is Girls Can't WHAT?, where we're asked, "Have you ever been told you can't because you're a girl?"

Annoyingly, the answer is yes!

So far, we've met great girls though this site, including Joey Davenport, who can throw a spiral football better than most guys, and Tammy from Fort Worth, Texas, who's one of the few women exterminators!

Now you can share a story about overcoming that "you can't" moment in the Your Story section of the site. Submit an essay, a poem, a video, whatever works!

And then come join us in the readergirlz forum, where we're talking with ultra-smart glamour girl author Meg Cabot!

We'll tell you what girls can do--anything.

Amen! Anyone can do anything.

Hey Readerdivaz and Postergirlz,
I nominated you for I Love Your Blog Award. Not sure if you have been nominated yet. Love the blog. =D

I'm finally on MySpace and was looking forward to chatting with Meg and Everyone, but just discovered I can't post on the Forum until I've been a MySpacer for a week. Grr.

Since I have a couple of questions for Meg that are OT, I wanted to squeeze them in early. Wanna ask them for me?

Meg's book, Jinx, includes girls practicing witchcraft. What kind of research did Meg do to portray that?

And what is the coolest thing Meg's (and all of you have) done in the name of book research?

Jen, I posted your questions under Meg's "Welcome" thread today. I'm sure she'll answer soon!
