In order to make a more perfect – scratch that… in order to make Fat Chic more usable to all mind maps, I’m starting on a sort of link cataloging project. I’m going to go through Fat Chic’s directory and begin categorizing the links by whatever categories I can brainstorm: country, department store, brand umbrella, and so on. The idea is to make it easier to come to Fat Chic and find what you’re looking for.
There’s no overt financial incentive for me to do this. I’ve decided to drop all but one or two affiliate programs as they make it an outright nightmare to blog authentically. I can blog to sell, which is an understandable practice among other bloggers, or I can blog to share my passion. For me these two things have turned out to be incompatible. So while I do bring in some income through Fat Chic clothing search and advertising, and while I’m strict about what I allow in comments, I am doing these use things for you, the reader and user.
No blog will ever be perfect, and I am no perfectionist. But this is one part of a considerable project I am taking on to make plus size shopping easier for all plus women – and hopefully, for myself.
So over the next few weeks you will start seeing “links” posts that just show links of various shops. Comments on these posts will likely be turned off, as they are for catalog purposes only. You will still be free to discuss on other posts under the comment guidelines, no worries!
