Can I Make It at TechCrunch Two Weeks? Vote!

Duncan Riley over at The Inquisitr has a poll asking how long I can last at TechCrunch. It's actually an incredibly complimentary post. I mean, I want this on my tombstone:

"Here’s a woman (lady may be sexist, but more fitting) who isn’t afraid to share an opinion, but does it with grace, in a dress of teflon."

But Duncan details how tough of a battleground that blog has been for women. He aptly sums up every reason Mr. Lacy didn't want me to help Arrington out. I, for one, can't imagine any comments worse than the ones I got at SXSW or get daily on TechTicker. I think Duncan underestimates how much people already hate me!

But he is right that I don't mince words or opinions. So, readers, you know me pretty well. What do you think? Can I last two weeks? Head on over and vote!

I might have to resubscribe to TechCrunch then.

you can do it. just don't let this site go.

It will be great to read your posts on Techcrunch. I hope no one spits on you. That would be a drag. If they do, perhaps we can form some kind of posse and go after them.

OK not only did I vote, I commented over there. They underestimate your strength Sarah. You'll make it just fine.
