Louisa May Alcott is My Passion contains a wealth of information about the life of the author, which includes biographies of Alcott for both children and adults, journals and letters, Alcott's ideas on feminism and transcendentalism, and so much more. The blog features contributing authors, highlights from related blogs, and posts that highlight related events, such as the 150th anniversary of the publishing of Little Women. The most recent blog post is a question-and-answer interview with Australian author Trix Wilkins, who wrote, "Why Jo Says No (and Why We Care)," included in the anthology Alcott's Imaginary Heroes: The Little Women Legacy. In addition to numerous resources about the life of Alcott and the time period in which she lived and wrote, Bailey provides links under the resources tab to related subjects. Included in this section is a link to the Fruitlands Museum, which is a National Historic Landmark and was the site of the experimental "utopian" community co-founded by Bronson Alcott, Louisa's father.
