Hi everyone, thank you so much for all your feedback on my recent Twitter poll about the frequency of Lingerie Is For Everyone. #LiFE is now a twice monthly prompt. The link party will open on the 1st of the month and on the 15th.
I’d like to give a big thank you to everyone who jumped onboard last week when I expressed that I was disappointed in the turn out for #LiFE lately. I am not surprised that numbers have been low. My tweets and posts have been more political as of late, in wake of the Great Divide in the community around trans rights, #BlackLivesMatter, and now the infuriating issue of a disingenuous blogger causing harm. I get it, not everyone scrolls twitter or reads sex blogs to hear opinions on such politics, and that’s fine. I use social media and blogs as an escape too, so I understand that when the politics ramp up, the participation sometimes winds down. To those of you who have stuck through my rantings, thank you.
Lingerie Is For Everyone is a community project and wouldn’t exist without participation. It is not a vanity project or a ploy to get more clicks, it is a response to a lack of ‘safe space’ for lingerie enthusiasts who do not fit the straight-white-slim-cis-female mold. If this was something that the community no longer wanted or needed, I would fold it up and stop posting. But the immediate response to me sharing that numbers were down, was really lovely and was proof positive that people do still want this prompt to run. What did surface was that folks felt rushed to get their pictures in on time and that maybe a weekly link-up was more than what was needed. This drove my decision to make it a twice monthly link up (1st-14th and 15th-last day of the month) so it’s easier to join in and frankly, less for me to keep up with.
I’ll still do Round Ups and highlight the images and posts that take my breath away, and I will still do my best to share and promote your awesome work. My ask is that you keep sharing the LiFE links, using the hashtags and spreading the word. A lovely twitter friend said to me as I am typing this: “The world is a better place because of LiFE.” I hope you feel that way too and continue (or begin) to join in, share your images and support others who do the same.
Lingerie is for EVERYONE and I believe that deeply. No matter the body you’re in, you are safe and welcome to share your love and appreciation for lingerie here. If it’s your first time, please have a look at the rules and grab the badge for your post. Thank you, everyone, for your support and interest in this project. I’m proud to run it and I’m elated that y’all still see its value and want to join in. Let’s be good to each other; love and kindness multiply, they never divide.
