Weekly round up and open thread
Megan Stodel // 19 January 2015
Welcome to this week’s round up and open thread! This is our regular digest of links we’ve come across recently – whether they involve inspiring success stories, heart-warming blogs, concerning new research, exasperating news or anything else F-Word relevant, we thought you might be interested.
Of course, we didn’t write these things and we don’t all agree with everything that all of them say. We also try to indicate where content might need a warning but please exercise caution when clicking on any external links.
Want to debate some of the points made? Think we missed something important? The comments are your oysters!
Also, remember that there are lots of opportunities to get involved with us at the moment. Recruitment for regular content, guest content and social media editors is ongoing until the end of the month, and you have until tomorrow to express interest in being one of our monthly guest bloggers. Any questions about any of that? Email me at email@example.com.

The image of two pink dice is by Amy the Nurse and is used under a creative commons licence. It shows two pink translucent plastic dice next to each other on a grainy wooden surface. The light is behind them and can be seen shining through them, with their shadows in front of them. Both show 6s on top, with 3s facing us; the left one also has a 2 visible, whereas the right one also reveals a 5. Chosen for this week because I’ve been immersed in various board games over the weekend!
