Now What?

August 1, 2008

Blogs, like people and certain bacteria, evolve over time.  One that is started for one purpose, shifts to another as times and circumstances change. 

I’ve been giving a lot of thought recently to the fate of this blog since its purpose has changed.  I started it to chronicle my break from infertility, but that break is now over.  And, let’s face it, my energy has focused away from my stated goals – the biggest one of which I fulfilled spectacularly – and back to getting knocked up. So, what to do with this here blog of mine? 

Seeing as how I did not manage to last a year – hell, I didn’t even last six months – before hopping back onto the A(ssisted) R(eproductive) T(echnology) Train, one could say that this experiment has failed and I should pack up my crayons and go home.  I did manage to fulfill some of my goals, chief among them adopting a pooch (who I hear softly snuffling in the kitchen at the moment), while others I didn’t actually do much to achieve (yoga? didn’t happen).  I feel like a bit of an imposter now posting here about my goals for stepping away from treatment since I am back in treatment. 

On the other hand, I have really enjoyed blogging about topics other than infertility.  When I started my infertility blog, it was to chronicle my infertility.  It seemed like cheating to add non-infertility stuff in there.  But, now I view it as blogging about the whole me – because I still do have a life outside of the big IF.  So, for now, I’m going to call a hiatus on this blog and will start integrating some of the stuff that I would have posted here into my other blog. 

Thanks for cheering me on during my quest!

    Blogging is like art. There are no rules or regulations. Sometimes when you work on a piece of art it evolves into something you didn’t envision in the first place. Art happens. Blogs happen.
    I say, “Fuck it! Keep blogging! There are no rules! Let your words flow woman!”
    Pardon my french. 🙂
