Chiara Mazzucco

CEO, Editor-in-Chief at The Indie Chicks, Inc
Chiara got her start in the blogosphere by dishing out reality slaps on her dating and relationship blog. The brutal honesty that became her signature tone earned her the badass reputation she needed to get The Indie Chicks magazine up and running. She is also a web designer and author of The 9 Mirages of Love. Driven, stubborn, and wildly ambitious, she won’t stop until she is the perfect, self-empowered role model for all of her readers.

It’s hard to believe we’re days from celebrating our first birthday! A year ago, The Indie Chicks was nothing but a bunch of penciled scribbles, messy emails, and sleepless nights. But with the help of loyal readers, an incredible staff, and remarkably talented and passionate bloggers from around the web, we have begun to blossom into the company, website, magazine, community, whatever,  of our dreams. And we couldn’t have begun our journey without you. So to celebrate our first birthday, we want to celebrate you, bloggers. Today we’re announcing our first annual Badass Blog Awards.
