Look at any women's stories, whether it be overcoming health matters, unfair incarceration, or launching a successful business under unlikely circumstances and you'll see natural resilience is something that will never go out of style. Although some of us may be part of a culture that encourages carrying the load for survival, it's not the same as accepting your circumstances, good or bad, but the ability to roll with change without bitterness. It's like those old Energizer bunny ads where the product with the brand X batteries (your haters) seemed to conk out quickly, the mechanical toy bunny just kept going and going.
A New Year and a new attitude often go hand-in-hand but these days, it’s challenging to stay close to your roots. We started out as a fun alternative to women’s issues but then the cultural shift kind of made it hard to create sharable content regularly. Throw in personal health matters, crazy hosting company drama, and other major life changes - all a normal person wants is time away to re-assess things.
This year, we want to keep the same spirit but make our content consistent and shareable. I’m not a fan of social media (in terms of the tactics companies use to keep the engagement going amongst people minding their own business) but we’re updated some of our contacts and will work hard to not let any strange activity come through.
If you're a business, the opportunity for you to promote your services is always available. Like any other site, we reserved the right to stick to our brand and not jump on bandwagons. My bills are laughing at me as I type this but I’m sticking to my convictions. Anyway, email any questions or suggestions and we may be able to explore other options.
In the meantime, look forward to an updated free version of the GENEROUS zine in the near future.
Hope to see you soon!
