Category Madness

I updated my categories to better reflect their content, and/or to make the titles less boring. I also added a few, namely a category for fat/body image issues, and one for movies. I also sorted the older, uncategorized posts into categories. Yay for organization!

On Writing

Writing is often really cathartic for people, especially writing and getting feedback. I have these conversations with myself where I’m going back and forth all the time, wondering if I should try to be more open and personal.

I think there are a lot of people “out there” who would probably really relate to the things I’d like to write about. Size acceptance, weight loss (or not), body image, feminism, etc etc, but I think there are also a lot of people who would leave nasty comments and be really mean, or who want to argue just to argue.

I guess this is all a part of what blogs are, and what purpose they serve for their authors and their readers. I’m not a journalist, and I’m not trying to be one… but I do believe in at least trying to cite sources when I’m making a statement. Also, this *is* my little bit of bandwidth and I guess I could just delete comments with impunity, kind of like washing the graffiti off your back fence when it bugs you. But that veers into coming across as unwilling to hear other points of view, especially to the ones that want to argue, not just insult. I’m not particularly interested in arguing in *my* space, though. There are plenty of other group weblogs (or even personal blogs where arguments are encouraged) where I can do that.

But that brings me back to what I’m trying to accomplish. I want to write. I want to share. But do I want to open myself up to the critical masses? I’m not sure.

We’re So Perky!

I am finally Number One with something at Google. My blog is the first hit for people looking for perky boobs! Too bad there aren’t any perky boobs around here, just wishful thinking…

Maybe I should put a paypal link up to collect donations for a breast-reduction surgery if I promise to post pictures of the results…

Or maybe not.

It’s pretty funny though. Perky boobs!!!

Brave Athena

Today I found a weblog called “Tales of Slow Brave Athena”, written by a plus size gal who walks marathons. Inspiring doesn’t even begin to describe this woman – she’s my fat hero of the week. Especially since I’m sore from lifting weights with my personal trainer yesterday and want to whine about it…

I especially liked the link and recommendation for the Enell Sports Bra. Anyone else tried one of these? I went out looking for a sports bra this weekend (try finding one of these in a 44DDD in regular stores…) and the best I could do was a 3X bra top at Target that isn’t exactly supportive. I bought it anyway (it was only $4.99, which tells you about the quality) and wore it yesterday, and it worked okay for the non-running up and down the stairs part of my workout. I really like that purple Enell bra though, so I might be tempted…

Weirdest recent search string finding my blog: my brother’s little pee-pee.
