I use Google Reader to keep track of all my favorite blogs. I have “Trying” “Preggers” “Parents” and “Etc” categories (Etc encompasses blogs about interests of mine other than TTC, which believe it or not I do have).
Lately I have felt a bit disconnected from the blog world. This is odd because I have more followers and am getting more comments than ever before. Then I realized why.
I started getting heavy into the blogging in January when we were starting our first IUI. At that time, I mainly made friends with bloggers who were doing IVF. There are an infinite amount of TTC blogs, as you know, and I spent hours (*cough* at work) combing through them all and finding women who had voices like mine (or way better, in most cases), whom I could identify with, and who elicited empathy and didn’t annoy me. I am easily annoyed so that last one was more important than you might think.
Now, all of these carefully selected blogging friends are pregnant. Hooray! Oh how I rejoiced when they got their BFPs.
And now there is a new wave of blogging friends. My cycle sisters are women I haven’t known as long. Don’t get me wrong, I love getting to know new bloggers. The more virtual friends, the better. But all my “best bloggy buddies” are in my preggers column now…and I hope someday to catch up with them.
So if you are interested in reading some ART success stories, here are my tried and true (and pregnant) blog friends. Let me know if I got your info wrong, ladies.
