Blogging Is Just Weird.

Blogging can be all kinds of weird.

Some days, you’ll spend hours crafting a post, writing and re-writing, thinking and editing…. and no one will pay any attention whatsoever.

And, other days, there are posts that you write out quickly and barely look at it again, the catharsis of them coming through bleeding out the words in the first place. You hit publish and file them away in your own mental archives, with hundreds of others, not expecting anyone to pay much attention…

And they get picked up and syndicated by BlogHer.

Excuse me while I rest back here on my laurels for a bit.

It’s comfortable, and I’m tired.

And besides, laurels smell just lovely.


Apologies for the bugs in the commenting system the last few days. I’d like to blame a new mobile blog reader app that may have just been released… but truly, it was my own fault for ticking the wrong box.

Fingers crossed, the gremlins will migrate elsewhere soon.

I am not at all surprised that this post was picked up. It's so honest and heartbreaking it made me cry, and I wanted to post a comment at the time but couldn't. Hope you all keep doing ok.

I read your poignant post on Blogher. I'm so sorry for what you've been through and my heart goes out to you and your babies.

Blogher picked up a totally random post of mine this week. I don't know how they choose! But that lost of yours is the first one I've ever read and I spent two hours yesterday going back and reading through your story. While my story is nothing like yours, I have many times in the last 8 years as a military wife looked around and said "Is this really my life? Am I strong enough to do this?"

I feel so much pain to read that people have judged and mistreated you as you have walked this path no one ever hopes to walk. I applaud your strength at speaking your truth and working through the hard things in spite of what those people may think or say. I mourn for the loss you have experienced of a man who you clearly loved beyond description, and I think the preservation of all these memories and experiences will help your children to better understand some day.

Your grocery store post was fantastic though. I am so glad Blogher picked it up so I could find your blog. It is really eye opening and amazing.
