Tuesday Musing : Fellow Blogger [https://aprillwood.wordpress.com/]

Every Tuesday, I share my interesting-fellow-favorite blogger’s details. They are blogging on various topics starting from poem to book to movie to fashion to photography to anything interesting.

April Wood [A Well Read Woman – AWRW] – Some blogger’s writing is so captivating that you always want to visit them again and again. AWRW is fall in that category.  I am not sure when I have started following her but I have read all book reviews from AWRW. I am not-up-to-the-mark compare to her but you can see her influence in my book review style as well.

About AWRW from her blog:

pinkglassesApril Wood is an aspiring romance author, book blogger, author interviewer, and a caffeinated book reviewer. When she is not glued to her computer or a book, she is busy taming wild spiderwort, (God those plants are annoying!), obsessing over her gardens to the point of insanity, feeding wildlife, and propagating her ever-growing collection of African violets. She lives in a beautiful historic tudor colonial with her Rock Star husband and their beloved black cat, in lovely Massachusetts, USA.

My mission is to promote authors and spread the word about great books. My reviews are 100% honest, and are based on content, character development, plot, and personal taste. As such, I only review books that I believe I will enjoy, not only as a book reviewer, but as a fan. If I don’t think I will enjoy reading your work, I will not accept your book for review. However, my accepting your work does not guarantee a positive review. I will publish my review regardless of the rating. As an aspiring romance author, my book review policy may change without notice as to focus on my own writing. Anything I have agreed to review will still be done as I’ve promised to do. Thank you for understanding.

#ILookLikeAnEngineer Aims To Spread Awareness About Gender Diversity In Tech

It’s started discussion at various platforms when OneLogin platform engineer, Isis Wenger, appeared in company’s recruiting campaign with light smile and less make-up. Some people find her smirking but I don’t find it (campaign) unappealing or unpleasant. Rather I find it cool, motivating and supporting to gender diversity in tech. It doesn’t matter how female engineer looks a like or whether she has unbrushed hair or minimal make-up or with full of make-up. The only thing matters is, she is an engineer with same capability of male engineer.

Checkout #ILookLikeAnEngineer is trending on Twitter in San Francisco, where people (including Wenger) started posting to the conversation. Isis Wenger also posted her view on Medium.com.

What you think?
