Well. It was inevitable. October has ended, and with it this edition of Women-Who-Rocktober – at least from me, if others want to continue with Women-Who-Rocktober in November they are most welcome to.

I knew at the outset that embarking on writing a month-long series of fully independent feature articles would be a little intense. And things certainly did get a little hectic at times, and more than once I wondered if I’d bitten off more than I could chew and if I should bail on the project, but now that I’ve seen it through I am glad I kept on keeping on, as I learnt much about artists I thought I already knew a lot about, and learnt about artist I hadn’t heard of before. I hope that reading this series has been informative and entertaining for you too.

It seems only fitting at this point to give some shout-outs, and to acknowledge those, without whom, this series wouldn’t have been possible.

Firstly, I wish to thank the Women-Who-Rocktober, for creating the music and art that has enhanced my life throughout the years. Without their efforts, this would have ended up a very short series indeed.

I would also like to thank Jen, Kati, Kristen, and Lara, who have spruiked my articles, and/or have been there with words of support and encouragement as the month wore on.

A special shout-out must go to Alyce, who has not only been a vocal supporter of this series, but has also been very generous with providing me with opportunities I would otherwise not have had.

An extra-special thanks goes to Monica, without whose support I wouldn’t be writing and pursuing a more rewarding career path. I am greatly in your debt.

Also, thank you to all the women-who-rock who didn’t get a mention; the known and unknown; the established and brand-new acts. Keep on rockin’, ladies!

And finally, thank you for reading and supporting this blog series with your likes and shares; it was certainly encouraging to see that this project resonated with so many out there.

If you enjoyed Women-Who-Rocktober, and would like to see more independent writing and reviews from me, please consider flicking me a few bucks on PayPal (I’m also looking into Patreon for the near-future too). With your support I can more frequently post independent, no holds barred, write-ups of gigs and new releases, as well as expand the site to include more of my photography.

Keep an eye out for my upcoming review of Abbe May‘s performance at the Newtown Social Club on the 17th November.
