I was reading my daily blogs (see blogroll), and was dismayed to discover that Elastic Waist is no more!!
I LOVE this site, and have been reading it every day for the past two years. I’ve gotten so many laughs, discovered so many new products, gained so many insights, and have been so inspired by these women and what they write. I know that I’m not alone, and that they must have a huge following. I can’t believe the powers that be at Conde Nast decided that running the site was too expensive. I know the economy is bad, but I wish they would’ve thought of some sort of out of the box way to keep the site up and running.
Anne/Jen will be writing at Jen Larsen (dot net) and Dearest Mabel. Kim will be writing at The Kim Challenge and will contribute to Forkful of News. Weetabix will be writing That’s My Bix and contributing to Dearest Mabel, Forkful of News, and Product Anarchy. But, it’s just not going to be the same. It’s like when your favorite T.V. show gets canceled and the actors all disperse into other roles on other shows, but the camaraderie and “magic” that you so enjoyed by watching their show can never be repeated.
But, life moves on. Another year ends. Another amazing blog dies. And yet, we persevere. All is not lost, because these ladies are giving us new blogs to read. And you know what? It may end up being better this way. Who knows?
P.S. – I’m going to leave Elastic Waist in my blogroll because there are a lot of wonderful, informative, and inspiring posts that I (and you) will want to re-read from time to time.
