Okay, I am switching blog sites. I truly hope you will follow me over to notpregnantandpissed.wordpress.com I am feeling very insecure that no one will follow me anymore and I will just be blogging to myself, lol. I guess if that happens that's ok...it will just be my online journal.
I have been feeling like I intended to be anonymous but then I got to know so many wonderful women and I couldn't help sharing photos of myself and then once Hazy came I HAD to share pictures of her too. I found myself in this strange limbo where you all know what I look like and what my child and husband look like and you know intimate details about me but not my real name. It just got weird.
One of the things about blogging in the infertility community that I really love is being a voice for someone else who is experiencing maybe some of the same things I went through. When I first discovered where the *bleep* is our stork's blog I felt such a HUGE sense of excitement and relief! I was literally drowning in my emotions of despair and anguish that NOBODY in my life understood. It was slowing killing me. To find out that there were other women who were going through the same shit as me (I knew there were I just didn't know a way to connect to them) was literally a game changer. I was able to redirect my anger and disappointment into blogging and keeping up with all of you lovelies. It made me feel like I wasn't alone. So I am feeling sad that moving my blog to a site with password protection will prevent random other women from finding me and following along. But I want to be open and honest and I want to be able to post pictures freely and talk shit about my family and friends if I feel like I need too ;)
My plan is to leave this site here for people to read my infertility journey. I deleted all the posts I've made since Hazy and transferred them to the wordpress site. If someone comes along and wants to follow me over at the wordpress site then they can send me an email and I will decide if I feel comfortable giving them the pass word.
So let's recap:
IF YOU HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING MY BLOG AND WANT TO CONTINUE, please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org OR leave your email in the comments below and I will send it to you.
IF YOU HAVE JUST ONLY NOW DISCOVERED MY BLOG AND HOW AWESOME IT IS AND WILL DIE IF YOU CAN'T READ MORE, then leave a comment with your email and I will check you out (if you have a blog where I can go snoop) You can also send me an email at email@example.com
I will not be password protecting every single post on the new site but probably most of them because I like sharing pictures and I don't want those available to just any one and every one.
I guess we'll see how this goes!

Tonight I created a wordpress blog....I think I'm going to be switching over there. I think? Is this just going to create problems and I will lose the few readers I have??? All I really want to do is password protect my posts....I feel like I've been too casual in posting pics and giving out personal information. Any of ya'll that have switched to a different blog site please tell me did you loose readers? Did you have regrets? How did you do it to make a smooth transition? How do new readers find your blog and gain access? What should I do? Starting off the new year feeling indecisive....
