I knew it had been a while since I'd written on this blog, but I didn't know that it had been well over a month. It's not surprising because I have been trying to figure out what to do with it. I admire so many others' blogs: PCOS Chick, Busted Plumbing, and After the Alter. They are engaging, visually attractive and fine examples of blogging.
I started this blog with the best of intentions. It provided a place to tell my infertility story without having to tell my story--answer questions for friends and family indirectly. Then, I got the wonderful opportunity to blog with Conceive, and I got lazy about this blog. In the last couple of weeks I have considered going dark completely. I have a new position that requires me to be a leader across the organization and across the globe. Now, it is possible to keep those two worlds separate, but the reality is that they some time cross. I have Facebook friends who I work with. I post my blog on to Facebook. How exposed do I want to be?
Perhaps, the time has come to actually have a more general blog and not one that is all about infertility. I love living in Silicon Valley--and even started a second blog for awhile about discoveries nearby. I also have been in high tech marketing for over two decades and know a thing or two. But, if there's one thing I understand about marketing--it is hard to please everyone. So, please be patient with me over the coming weeks as I try to find my way again.
There's no doubt that I love storytelling and have appreciated the support from friends and followers who have been reading along.
