Out of the ashes of the late, lamented Elastic Waist, a phoenix has arisen. A phoenix with one feather that is me! It is a web portal called Dearest Mabel featuring the writing talents of Weetabix, Jen (aka Anne) and Kim from Elastic Waist, as well as me and Jennette. It will feature links to all of our latest posts as well as separate linky posts, of which there are already quite a few! (Keep in mind that both Kim and Jennette write about weight loss, so be forewarned.)
There is no “theme” to the portal. Weetabix and Jenfu have both shifted into writing more personal (rather than weight-oriented) blogs, and they’ve also said that they’ll be posting size acceptance related stuff here from time to time, so hopefully Big Fat Deal will be busier than ever in 2009. (And I welcome your input, if there’s anything you’d like to see happen here this year.)
We’re still putting things together over at Dearest Mabel and getting our feet wet and tweaking the template, but in the meantime, I just wanted to point you over there. Happy reading, and happy new year!
