MEDUSA is closing

As a result of Google forcing Classic sites, like Medusa, to convert to their New sites formatting, MEDUSA will be going offline in the next few months. Because of the vast amount of information on my website, it not transferable to Google's new site formatting. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my loyal followers over the past many years for your support, and hope that the information on my website has helped you in your journey back to health.

Sending big hugs to you all, and I wish each and every one of you the very best in the future. Love, Medusa xo

Hi there, so the website is allegedly not transferrable due to technical reasons? If so this is a comfortable way for them to remove information of the past. I mean there is no way you could not program a new site in a way that does allow conversion of old versions. So in this case this is done on purpose I guess. If it is a matter of money though, I would recommend to raise the amount via patreon or the like. I would happily donate for covering the costs. Best greetings!

Would you be willing to accept assistance with transferring to a new site? I'd be willing to help for free and without credit if it could help keep this resource about. If you're interested, I can confirm my identity privately or discuss further at: offer.of.help.for.2medusa@gmail.com

I really understand if you're not willing to accept, I just thought I had to at least offer. Either way, thank you for everything you put in to this site.

Medusa said...

Thanks very much for your very kind offer! I will contact you privately.

Thanks, Anonymous! I hope so, too. 🤞🏻

Thanks for your comment. I’m unable to transfer it to WordPress, and am unable to program a new site that would allow its conversion. My site was started on Blogger, which was bought by Google. There is no easy way to solve this problem. If I were to create a new Medusa site on another platform, each and every post and picture would have to be copied individually and pasted on the new site. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time or inclination to do that.

Really hope this site still stays online, even if it's not updated. I've only learned of it recently and you were/are tons of help. Thank you so much for gathering all of these stories, pictures, and facts.

Medusa, your blog was a real eye-opener. I'm not anorexic but have always been underweight and teetering on the ed mindset. Have been accused of being anorexic by nurses and friends before. It was easy to say no, for I've been BMI 16 or slightly under all my life. Perfectly normal, just on the petite side.

It took pages and pages of this blog to realize this is not healthy. I was deluding myself. Everything about self-loathing, perfectionism, and the need for control rang true. No, I don't need to match the conventional idea of a healthy woman and suddenly gain 10kg+, but I don't need to obsessively maintain this weight either. That was what I'd been doing. Obsessively maintaining.

Karlene's story was especially touching, with the progression and your obvious love for her. Thanks again. Hope this blog stays.

Anonymous, I’m so happy to hear that my blog was helpful to you. Thanks so much for your very kind words. They mean the world to me.

I have contacted Google to see if they would consider allowing my site to remain a Classic site and not take it offline in November 2021. Fingers crossed.
All the very best to you, and I wish you a happy and healthy future. Medusa xo
