So.. two years ago I started this blog. Two years ago I was nearing the end of my first two week wait (period for that first cycle began on the 1.4.08, April's Fools Day :-). Nice date to begin, no?). Two years and another year before that to get things going both technically and emotionally (taking folic acid as a first act; changing my medical plan; going to see a gynecologist for the first time [was terrified!]; appointments at sperm bank and fertility clinic; and basically internalizing the idea of becoming a single mother by choice using donor sperm). But two years ago I actively began on my voyage, taking me about a year and a half to conceive. And now in retrospect I know that's not such a lot of time (and some of you trying for longer than that), but it did look back then like eternal, and will I ever!?
I wanted to do some kind of change in the appearance of my blog, mainly to have a three column blog. But looking for such a template (free ones. I really don't intend on spending money on such), I couldn't find something where I can put my own into it. There were nice templates out there, some I was thinking that might do it, but they weren't "mine", and I couldn't personalize them (if I knew HTML I probably could have played around enough to my liking, but beyond knowing how to put a word in bold in a comment, I don't....). So I'll keep it as is.
I did add a new counter [which oops, added a day too early], one that shows on the blog itself how many readers by countries. I wonder in my next blogaversay, how many countries I would have been visited by! (right now it shows the country's map when you hover over the flag, but I'm not sure if that's a premium feature that will "vanish" in two weeks time when my "trial period" [have no intention of purchasing the premium] ends or will stay. I also think it will go to a basic white as I've seen on other blogs).
Funny how blogging goes with you a long way. Many times I would think, oh I should post about this and write a whole post in my head about whatever. Many times knowing that I will never actually write that post, just that fun of chronicling ones daily events in a post in ones head.. And other times when I do intend on posting but maybe am not currently in front of the computer, I would have the perfect wording, best way of phrasing, which will miraculously vanish when I finally try and put it down into writing. lol. And thank god for spell check, because there are too many words here that I know I misspelled! [and yes, also misspelled was misspelled..].
I'm scheduling this post to be posted at the exact same date and time as my first post :-).
