Hello

(This is a Hello page, and if you have your own site, you should make one too.)

Hello, I’m Kimberly Hirsh.

Here is how I prefer to keep in touch, and why:

  • My favorite way to converse is email.
  • I mainly write on my website. To share what I’m focusing on, I have a now page.
  • The social space I spend the most time in is micro.blog.
  • I occasionally will post short notes from my blog on Twitter as well. I sometimes use it to keep up with interesting people who do not have a primary online presence elsewhere.
  • I use LinkedIn to connect with professionals in fields of interest to me and keep up with the job market. I occasionally syndicate professional articles I post on my blog to LinkedIn.
  • I have multiple Instagram accounts but do not use any of them currently.
  • I sometimes use Tumblr to keep up with fannish interests but do not use it regularly.
  • I only use Facebook for groups and am not accepting new friends currently.

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.


We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
