In the case it wasn’t already rather blatantly obvious to all but those handful of rather determined readers hoping otherwise; I have been seriously neglecting the blog here. It is long overdue to be said but: Round Shape has come to the end of its long and, to me and hopefully at least a few others HELPFUL, run.
I feel like I’ve had a REALLY great time here in saying my piece. I have asked many questions, raised many salient points and posted much on my own life as a fat woman. I’ve reached the point, however, where the time, energy (and anger) I need to craft the witty and thoughtful sorts of posts that I enjoy placing here is more than I have to give to this venture; especially when I’ve come to feel that it is simply making the SAME point over and over again, mostly preaching to the choir.
Some great blogs to read that I follow for news and empowerment in the field of discussions on fatness, as well as feminism, racism, sexuality, intersectionality, and more:
- Dances with Fat
- Nudemuse…daily nattering
- Living ~400lbs
- The Adipositivity Project
- Fat and Not Afraid
- Sociological Images
If I ever create more little crochet-creatures you can find them on Ravelry.com. The posts here will stay up as an archive of the many great things done here at RoundShape over the years (wow, yes, YEARS) that I AM in Shape, ROUND is a Shape, has been up and running.
As for me? I plan to keep dancing (the spring schedule is already filling up!!), loving life, working at libraries with the occasionally very interesting patron, following the above and other blogs to keep abreast of the world of fatness, body acceptance and news about all the many things I’ve followed since before I decided to thrust forth into this blogging venture.
Thank you so very much to all the folks who have read my words, found value within them, and followed me here. You are all amazing, thoughtful people who encouraged me to stay on here longer than I think I would have otherwise.
Keep being beautifully amazing you lovely readers and may all your ventures be successful and as-long-lived as needed for you to get out of it what you want out of them. Shake your body-happiness at every chance and I will see you around the Fat-o-Sphere!
