What this blog is for

I’ve been at a bit of a loss as to what to write about on here recently. At first this started out as a record of my training up to my first British Classic in 2013; from there it morphed into discussions of body image, fat acceptance & feminism in powerlifting/lifting; and also a bit of discussion of what it’s like to lift when you have a chronic health condition (endometriosis in my case).

However, I’m much more at peace with my body image now, and since I had an ablation I no longer have as serious effects from my endometriosis. I’m still a feminist and deeply into fat acceptance, but for the latter I feel like it’s not entirely my place to talk about as I’m firmly in the inbetweenie section.

So what is my blog for? I’m not a great writer and am not writing here to improve my skills (I think I’m as good as I’m ever going to get!) My training log posts are dry and boring, I think. Sometimes I feel like the effort I put into heart-and-soul posts like For World Mental Health Day aren’t worth it and are better off on my (private) LiveJournal or paper diary.

So over to you, readers (or possibly reader!) – what would you like me to write about? What do you find interesting? Are there any burning questions you’d like to ask me?

I don’t want this blog to stagnate as I do really enjoy writing here (when I get round to it!) but I also want to know I’m not entirely shouting into the void, and I’m producing things people really want to read. So let me know!
