The Final, Fond Farewell
I announced a little while back that I would be leaving Skepchick for the Freethought Blogs network. Now that the FtB redesign has been implemented, Heinous Dealings (with its lovely banner designed by Alex Gabriel) is a go, and this will be my final post on Skepchick.
Back when I first responded to call for writers on Skepchick, I had a few Tumblr posts, a random writing credit on an online music magazine, and a lot of frustration with the secular movement. It’s almost mind-boggling to fathom how far I’ve come, how much I’ve learned, and how both hopeful and ambitious I can allow myself to feel now.
I will never forget that Skepchick is where I was first given the chance and the space to be myself grow into myself. The Skepchicks also provided me with the first group of secular women I knew who supported me and believed in me. For that, I will be forever grateful. I am also grateful that this isn’t truly a forever or final farewell, as we all continue to struggle to promote and remain on the right side of history.
