    1. Hi Lauren – I really appreciate you speaking up to let me know how you feel, as it always helps me to see other perspectives. In general with this roundup, my intent in linking to a specific article is not to endorse everything on a website or everything about an author. I certainly don’t intend for my links to be a statement of my political beliefs, particularly as I also frequently link to things that I completely disagree with if I found them to be well-written/thought-provoking.

      With regards to the Ivanka Trump link, I read Capitol Hill Style too and had seen that post at the time. However, I’ve also been reading the Ivanka Trump blog for over a year (maybe more?) and have found the posts on there to be very informative when it comes to women and careers, as well as completely non-partisan. My understanding is also that the website is written by a large team of people and very little is written by Ivanka herself. I haven’t noticed anything on the Ivanka Trump blog that was bigoted, though I certainly could have missed something, so I continue to read that as a source of career info. The style info, not so much, as my friends will tell you that I am woefully unstylish 😉

      I really hope you’ll keep reading – and that you’ll continue voicing your concerns if you disagree with things I post. Above all I want to make sure that my blog always invites open, respectful dialogue like your comment. Thank you so much for reading and commenting!
