You probably have noticed I haven’t been posting much in the last few months. I’ve decided to go ahead and retire this blog. After over two years of blogging on and off, I’ve loved making connections with so many great people. However, keeping up with all of you and writing about my own life has cut into too much time away from my family, and with a blossoming doula/childbirth ed career it isn’t getting any easier. Nothing personal – it’s just what I’ve got to do.
But never fear! You can still find me on the internets. I keep a blog on my doula/childbirth education business website at http://www.threeriversbirth.com. Although I keep the content professional rather than personal, you’ll still be able to pop in and say “hi” and see that I’m still out there, massaging the sore backs and squeezing the flexible hips of mamas in labor.
Blogging has helped me discover a passion, given me the courage to follow a dream, educated me while pursuing it, let me show a side of me that I don’t normally show, comforted me during rough moments, helped me celebrate happy ones and let me be a part of so many lives of people I’ve never met but come to truly love. Yes, I’m talking about you. Each and every one of you.
While I write this, so many of your faces (or at least your internet personas) spring to mind and I will each of you so many of you very, very much.
