On July 5, 2006 I started The Shape of a Mother.com. This is a Woman opened in 2011. A year that turned out to be my worst one ever. Like. Seriously bad. So I had to focus on Life and all it entailed rather than promoting and supporting TIAW the way it needed me to. I saddled myself with guilt for not getting the site’s name and mission out there more, but, to be honest, I’m still catching up from 2011, and of all the things I desire to do with my life, begging ladies to get naked and write about it isn’t the biggest one right now.
What I do want to do right now is write more. I want to write more about feminist issues, but also about other things that don’t necessarily fit here at TIAW. Things like the weird foods my family eats (beet hummus, you guys – so good), the TV shows I get philosophical about, and the crazy things that happen in my day to day life.
So! I’m marrying the two. I’m keeping up the Weekly Awesome (but probably under a new name – I’m thinking Feminist Fridays) and the occasional post I write about Lady Stuff, but I’ll be doing that over at my personal blog zebrabelly.com (there isn’t a whole lot there yet since I’m making a clean start – but I’ll blog there several times a week). I really hope you follow me over there! I will also be keeping TIAW’s Pinterest and Tumblr pages, and the Facebook page will represent both blogs as well. SOAM isn’t changing at all. If all you want to read is the TIAW stuff, make sure you like the Facebook page, I’ll post links to all the entries there.
Thank you for being there for TIAW. Here’s to new beginnings!
