If Her.meneutics acts as a virtual water cooler for today's evangelical women, then our workplace was abuzz this year with discussions about sex: unnecessarily steamy plots on TV, modesty on college campuses, and flirting on Facebook and other websites. That sexual ethics and ideals get evangelicals talking is not surprising. What was surprising, and refreshing to the editors, was the wide range of other topics discussed on the women's blog this year. Just scroll through our list of interests in the left-hand column of the page, or the list of tags in the right-hand column, and you'll see that our writers—of which we included many new ones this year: Amy Julia Becker, Ellen Painter Dollar, Rachel Stone, Margot Starbuck, and Gina Dalfonzo, to name a handful—can connect their Christian faith with seemingly any cultural trend, news development, pop culture artifact, or book. We are grateful for their words and wisdom.
And now to the list. If any of your favorite posts from 2010 are missing, mention them in the comment section. There, you can also mention what you'd like to see us cover in 2011. On the docket for the near future: when celebrities go public about miscarriage, a dating website exclusively for virgins, and book reviews of Kimberly Smith's Passport through Darkness and Lori Gottlieb's Marry Him.
