Strong Like Butterfly brings the best of the popular website Girl Body Pride to the pages of your e-reader in a collection of strong and inspiring essays from women celebrating the You that You Are Right Now. While the word “body” might be interpreted only as that which never seems to be the right size, shape, or weight, it is so much more than the visual. Each writer in this anthology bares her soul and drops the judgement because she discovered the lightness of spirit that comes with sharing her truth. Here is Pauline’s post about the book. It is now available at Smashwords!

    Not only would I love to read the anthology, but I sure would love to wear that bracelet. It’s been easy for me to talk about having good body image all these years because I was thin. Over the last year, I’ve gained a little, and now I see it’s not always so easy. Working on loving what the 45 year old me seems to have decided is a little sumthin’ extra for the world to enjoy.

    • Erin Margolin


      You are awesome. You are beautiful. And I can’t wait to room with you at Blissdom! Thanks for stopping by! xoxoxoxo

      Inner Chick,

      I bet if you can’t now, you will be able to do so soon. Sometimes it just takes a little time for these things (I was just for the first time featured in an anthology and each process was a little slow at first). Thank you for your kind words about my blog—you are SO wonderful! I’m sorry you didn’t win the bracelet (I just announced that Jayme of Random Blogette, won it), but….the anthology will be awesome.
