For this 100th blog post, I’m excited to share a new, hopefully more robust and accessible website. For the past few weeks, I’ve been building this new version of Heart-Head-Hands.com, a blog with storytelling, resources, and e-courses focused on feeling, thinking, and doing—that is, everyday living—for justice.
It’s taken me longer than expected, but the site has come together with the help of good friends and a good web designer (many thanks to Steel Wagstaff!). Today I’m launching this new version of the site that’s sure to grow in the weeks, months, and years to come.
Here’s some of what’s new:
- Design and navigation updates to make content easier to find, share, and reply.
- Organization of blog posts into multiple categories and TAGs to aid searches.
- An extended about page sharing the vision and bio that bring me to this work.
- An initial description of offerings, or possibilities for working directly with me.
- Integration with my Instagram account for connecting through social media.
- New functionality that allows me to email subscribers and to accept donations.
- Creation of a Patreon account, where I’ll offer additional content to patrons (folks who support the work through a recurring monthly donation).
Additionally, you’ll now find blog posts grouped into seven categories:
- contemplative practices, including meditation, divination, yoga asana, and reflective writing.
- emotional literacies—considering what embodied awareness, recognition, intelligence, courage, and response-abilities are needed when striving for justice.
- everyday feminism, or a way of living that questions internalized sexism and values equity and justice.
- higher education—advocating for more meaningful teaching and learning, career discernment, and equity in education.
- racial justice, including attention to whiteness, white supremacy, and intersectional (in)equities.
- vegan + gluten-free recipes toward eating in a way that minimizes harm and nourishes the body.
- why vegan?— connecting this personal question with the political work of ecofeminism and movements for social, racial, gender, economic, and environmental justice.
My hope is that these categories not only map content but also chart a course for everyday living and striving for justice.
Want to learn more? Take a look around, explore some recent or featured posts, and check out an e-course or two (coming in 2019). Let me know what you’d like to see addressed, and consider subscribing, sharing, and supporting this project.
In the past few weeks, as I had to pull back on weekly blogging to work on this website, I never realized that I was setting up this post to be my 100th. Now the timing and the number feel nothing short of miraculous.
I look forward to getting back into the swing of public posting, to share what I’ve been working on privately, and to “launch” in hopefully an auspicious way. Happy 100th!
