Today’s Awesome Thing is: Eat the Damn Cake, a blog by “Kate” from Manhattan.
Why I think this is Awesome:
Confession: I stumbled on this blog several months ago, and only began rereading it yesterday. However, it really hit home. Kate is an excellent writer, and she talks about the sensitive issue of body image with insight and humor. Plus, she has a gallery of readers looking fancy and eating cake (hilarious). If you are female, and have ever complained about your body, then you should check out this blog. It’s a great antidote to society’s message of fitting a mould to be beautiful.
