Chickclick (www.chickclick.com) is a web portal
/ content site aimed at internet savvy
girls from their early teens to their late twenties. They have kind of a similar format to and similar departments as your typical girl magazine (like (blech) seventeen
), but they have a refreshing girl-positive attitude: up with all girls, down with barriers, up with healthy bodies, down with image stereotypes, up with voting
, down with ignorance
. It's cool. The occasional merch plugs for their chickshops are excusable because it supports such a great content site. Not everything there is for everyone.. with such a wide age bracket target group, you have to have some articles that focus on one end or the other (the cohabitation
section isn't for the pre-teens, but then the advice for coping with highschool
cliques isn't for the twenty-somethings either) - but everything is thoughtful and fun. Yay for them.
Update: Okay, it used to be all that. Now it's an ad-ridden, bankrupt, dot-com flunkout shell of its former self, after being bought by Snowball and then more or less written off. Alas, poor chickclick, we hardly knew ye.
