Code By Women

Contributions Welcome MIT License

A collection of awesome technology blogs and projects, created by women. Originally built as a personal list of blogs to check in with frequently, now CodeByWomen aims to serve as an open source index of women who write about and create software.

Add A Blog

You will need a Github account to add your blog directly to CodeByWomen. Fork this repository, add your blog to the fork, and then open a pull request.

Blog and project entries are written in YAML syntax, a human-readable version of JSON. Here's a template for adding a project:

  name: Your Name
  github: URL to your Github (Optional)
  twitter: URL to your Twitter profile (Optional)
  instagram: URL to your Instagram profile (Optional)
  pinterest: URL to your Pinterest Profile (Optional)

title: Your Blog/Project Title (Or Your Name!)
screenshot: ./img/
description: |
  Talk a little bit about your blog here! Or your project, if this is a project!

Save this file under content/blogs/your-blog-here.yml and commit your changes! You will need to take a screenshot of your site and place it in content/blogs/img/your-blog-here-xyz.png as well.

If you need help, or would like someone else to add your blog/project, contact Madelyn Eriksen directly.
