I only stumbled upon Quarterlette a few weeks ago, happy to find another site that catered to twentysomething women. Not long after my discovery, the website earned a spot on the Forbes 100 Best Websites For Women 2013 as well as the Forbes 10 Best Websites For Millenial Women. Needless to say, the brainchildren behind this site are some kickass ladies. Here are some thoughts from co-founders Rachel and Emily.
We launched Quarterlette June 4, 2012, but started working on the concept 1.5 years before that. As you can read in our manifesto (http://quarterlette.com/
The main thing that we hope our readers gain is the sense that they are NOT ALONE! You’re not alone in whatever experience you’re going through. You’re totally normal. It’s completely normal to feel lost. To feel heartbroken. To feel stressed, overwhelmed, confused. Or incredibly excited, optimistic, passionate.
In a year…and in 5 years…we would just love for our readership to grow significantly. Our main goal right now is getting the Quarterlette message out and continuing to work with writers to deliver high quality content for the site. Ultimately we want Quarterlette to be the go-to destination for every girl in her quarter life years.
Quarterlette is for the woman who doesn’t have it all figured out but who understands that that’s ok. She’s smart, down-to-earth, shy, outgoing, funny, fun, inspiring and is in the process of building her own life story. Whatever that may be.
