Sisterhood and Recovery

And thank you to all the men who support the women in their lives. This week's video is in honor of International Women's Day. Check it out:

New Tabs to Make Your Life Easier

You may have noticed that there are now new tabs directly under the header that will take you "special" separate pages on Actively Arielle. There is the home page, of course, where the main blog is updated.

Next there is "About Arielle," where you can read about the author instead of having a bunch of info shoved onto the left sidebar.

Then there is a tab called "Arielle's Mantra." This will take you to a page that holds - you guessed it - my mantra for recovery.

Then there is my new pride and joy - a tab called "Arielle's YouTube Videos By Topic." This separate page will always show you a video log. Here I have painstakingly compiled a LONG list of all my YouTube videos, organized by topic. One great thing about this is you won't have to hunt for specific ones. The other great thing is that everything is cross-listed in the categories, so "How to Get Past Hating Your Body" may  be in the HOW TO section, but it will also be in the BODY ISSUES/BODY IMAGE section. This new tabbed page will be updated frequently, as I make new videos each week and they will be categorized and added. I think this will help readers/viewers find the things they are really looking for and also be able to get back to them (and others) easily. Please let me know what you think!

Next, there is a new tab called "Personal Posts" where you will find links to all the posts I have done that are about me/my experience specifically. There aren't many, as this blog isn't about me, but about helping YOU - but there definitely are some out there for the curious folks. I am still working on adding to the "Personal Posts" tab, so bear with me - I have to go back through more than 3 years of posts.

The last tab, which has yet to be added, will be "Arielle's Letters to YOU" and there you will find all the letters/declarations/and thank yous I have written to specific readers and all of you at large.

So grateful, as always, for your kind and thoughtful comments, emails, and messages. Keep fighting the good fight and enjoy the new top tabs. Hope they make life easier!
