Two Women You Need to Know

If you don't know me yet, I'm Rachel, the editor of this beautiful corner of the Internet. It's my job to keep everything up and running around these parts, but about a month ago, I realized I couldn't do it all by myself anymore.

This post should have been written a month ago... but really, that just confirms why it's happening at all. This post is to tell you about two women who have stepped up on The Rising team into new roles. This post is to make sure you know them both, and it's also to brag on them a little bit.

In the middle of October, Holly Paulette and Taylor Schumann became assistant editors of The Rising. They had been on our team as monthly writers, so I already knew them and loved them both. I knew I would have less time to keep the logistics of the site working, and knew they both had what it took (and more) to be perfect.

Now? I can't imagine doing all of this without them. They help edit posts from our incredible (and always growing!) team of writers, they help scout out killer images that make those posts look even prettier, they help schedule tweets and posts to spread the word, and they keep me sane.

They both have blogs of their own, so make sure to read Holly's here and Taylor's here. You can find everything Holly has written on The Rising here, and everything Taylor has written here.

Oh, while you're at it, follow Holly and Taylor on Twitter too! And comment to say hi and congratulate them on this new role, because they're absolutely rockstars at it.
