I've moved! The Beheld is now a part of my more comprehensive site, autumnwhitefieldmadrano.com, which also has information on my book, Face Value: The Hidden Ways Beauty Shapes Women's Lives.
The URL the-beheld.com should direct you to the new site seamlessly. But if you've put the blogspot address into your RSS feed, you should take a second and redirect it to the-beheld.com, which is now hosted on Squarespace. All new blog posts will be posted there, though I'll keep this Blogspot site open for archival purposes.
My main reason for switching from Blogspot to Squarespace is the commenting system: The spam filters at Blogspot are terrible, and I hated having to put restrictions on who could and couldn't post comments. Squarespace seems to be better at filtering out spammers, so hopefully you can comment there with ease, and anonymously if you so desire. I also needed to create an author site, so this went hand in hand with that.
Nothing else has changed! I admit I'll miss the clunky aesthetics of this space. It's a reflection of how I see myself as a beauty commenter, in a way—an outsider with the tools to participate, but not the sleek wrapping. I dearly needed an upgrade to my site, so I did one. But that ethos—a little rough around the edges, and utterly sincere—remains.
