Hi, I’m Rachel Hills. I’m a journalist, blogger and soon-to-be author interested in the intersection of the personal, the political and the cultural. You may have read my work on the Sydney Morning Herald, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Marie Claire, TheAtlantic.com, The Spectator or one of the other magazines, websites and newspapers I’ve contributed to – if not, you should start reading them so they’ll keep on employing me.
Things I like include: hosting parties and events, meeting and making friends with interesting people, Gossip Girl and Glee, conversations that run at a mile a minute, and talking about the machinations of power over breakfast.
About Musings of an Inappropriate Woman
I started this blog at the tail end of 2007, inspired by writers who were using the net to connect with people who liked their work… before realising that only other writers care about what writers were thinking.
These days, it’s more of a professional sketchbook or virtual coffee shop, where I play around with ideas I’m working on, share things I think are cool, and urgently get down on the screen the things that consume me. Along the way, I’ve connected with over 25,000 subscribers around the globe (most of them in Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom), been named Australia’s Best Feminist Blog, nominated for Cosmopolitan’s Fun Fearless Female Awards and listed as one of Problogger.net’s 40 Bloggers to Watch.
