Girlboxing: One Year On!

Girlboxing: One Year On!

Today marks the one year anniversary of the Girlboxing blog.

As of this piece, that means a total of 335 posts and according to the stats, 90,316 total views.  I find that to be stunning and thank Girlboxing readers for all of your incredible support.

Not only has writing Girlboxing given me the opportunity to add my voice to the conversation about women’s boxing, but it has aided me as I have gotten myself back into the ring.  Just today I had the joy of boxing Lennox Blackmore through four rounds of sparring — mind you getting tagged much of way by straight rights and left hooks, but at least I managed to get out of the way a little more than last week and even managed to get in a few shots of my own plus some counter punching.

As with boxing, writing is a labor of process and discovery that demands a level of truth.  What Girlboxing has given me is the opportunity to discover both — something that is reaffirmed in one way or another every day.  It is hard for me to express just how much this experience has meant to me or how much the interaction with Girlboxing readers has come to mean.  I feel as if I have made some incredible friends — and look forward to continuing the dialogue.

One more thing, I know that my columns have been a bit more scant that usual lately.  Mostly I am up to my “eyeballs” in regular work stuff plus writing my thesis for my master’s degree.  I will, however, try to keep to a minimum of four days a week and more when I can.

Otherwise, thank you all again for dropping by!

All the best,

Malissa Smith
