Blogger Comeback

Once upon a time, there was this infertile girl who started this blog in order to reach out to others who were in the same position as her. She hoped to find girls that would understand what she was going through.

What she learned was that this community would oftentimes be her saving grace. They would encourage her when she was worried, celebrate with her when she was happy and mourn with her when times went bad. These girls she'd never meet in real life were going to become some of her best friends.

The number of followers grew and grew and she loved reading the comments that people left. Every now and then she would even meet someone in person who was a follower. It was such a huge compliment to realize that people actually liked the crap she was writing.

But then the infertile girl did the unthinkable. She got pregnant. And the blog entered new territory. Happiness. Success. But she felt sad because she couldn't bring all of her blog friends along for the ride.

Once the non-sleeping demanding baby arrived, her blogging fell victim to the sleep deprivation and dirty diapers.

And then she really went crazy and was lucky enough to get pregnant again. But two babies in a house meant no time for anything other than an occasional bathroom trip and toothbrushing, on a good day.

So the followers dwindled and the comments became few and far between and she lost interest in trying.

But now she's back. She's reinventing this blog and following others again. She may only have one person who reads now and that's fine. But she needs to document this period of time. It's all such a blur with all of the craziness two kids brings. And she needs her blog friends still. She wants to encourage those still trying and celebrate when they get their BFP's. She wants to follow other moms and get tips on parenting these strange little creatures. Heaven knows she needs all the help she can get.

So, hope to get to know some of you better! :). And I hope to create an interesting post at least every now and then!


  1. Yay, I was worried you would stop!

    Things get busy and it is hard to figure out what to write exactly, but I love hearing about juggling two kids and since Paisley is ahead of Avery I know what to (and not) look forward too!

  2. I'm still here!! Glad you'll be writing more!

  3. The first part of your post made me think you were stopping- I was SO relieved to read that you aren't. I love your blog! I think blog followers mirror real life friendships in a lot of ways- some come and go, depending on the season of life. Can't wait to keep reading!

  4. Oh crap... You had me scared for a minute that you were going to be "shuttin' her down" too!! Glad to see that's its just the opposite. :)

    The honest to goodness truth is... I read *almost every single post of yours.. I just simply don't have time to comment. Because, like you, I have a VERY demanding 2 year old. My kid likes to be entertained. Constantly. :l sometimes I will begin to type out a comment only to have him start tugging at my leg and screaming "momma"--

    Hang on.. Must nuke more chicken fingers..

    --okay, I'm back. He settled for a yogurt instead :)

    Anyways:.. I even read your latest post about not getting any sleep outloud to my husband the other night when we were in the car. He thought the "hell no.. We won't go" was the funniest part. We don't get sleep either. In fact, it has come down to him sleeping in between us every single night. Which I SWORE would never happen in our household.

    Bahahahaa.... I was so smart pre-baby. Thinking I could call the shots and stuff.

    I gotta wrap this up. Glad you aren't leaving!!

    Here's us:


  5. I always look forward to your posts. They brighten my day, make me smile, feel like I'm not alone and sometimes it's just a good read written by you! I'm glad you're going to continue!

  6. I'm still here and as a fellow mom who found the gold at the end of that elusive infertile rainbow, I'm looking forward to reading more!!!

  7. I have felt the same way - my "inspired" posts have waned and my followers and comments are the same 4-6 people every single time, lol! I keep writing for ME and if others enjoy it, bonus. But there's no pressure...because clearly hundreds of people aren't waiting anxiously for my next post, lol! Glad to see you'll be staying around too:).

  8. Still here! I feel the same. My posts have become photo dumps and that's about it! I feel guilt for not writing something inspiring or funny or just interesting in general. I still want to be there for the girls still trying! Maybe when I start getting some real sleep I will write more! :)
