First Hit of Blog

I was going to post how I finally started ordering my drugs for the upcoming IVF cycle, but I figure I’ve got a few weeks before I start getting myself into a lather about that. Instead, April hit on something in her comment to my last post that piqued my curiosity. And...BTW, all of the websites you recommended were great. They have been added to Max's Favorites.

That First Hit of Blog. You know you’ve done it, or else you wouldn’t be here. You can try to hide how your hands and wrists always seem to be in the proper typing form, but you’re not fooling anyone.

I’ll start for I have no shame. Yeah, yeah. You don’t have to point out the fact that if I have no shame, which I politely refer to as “modesty”, why do I not share my whole name, address, phone number, etc., but hey! a gal's got to have a little mystery. It’s kinda’ like a girly magazine: if I was buck naked, well that would just be slutty; however if I had on a little nighty with just the right amount of coverage, that would be enough to keep one coming back for more…not that any one of you probably want to or should see me in a nighty…

I digress. The first Blog I read was Within the Woods. It was back in early August of this year while I was g00gling on the Follistim pen, which I was going to be using for my IUIs. And lo! I was hooked because she was such an honest and funny writer. In fact, her recent post on Mr. Diddles is drink-snort-out-through-the-nose HILARIOUS!

So now it’s your turn. What I want to know is when and where did you get your First Hit of Blog? What were you looking for? Of course, if your first Hit was here because you g00gled buck+naked+slutty+nighty, well you can just go take a flyin’ fuck - you pervo.

My first hit of blog was way back in 2003. I read Julie over at A Little Pregnant, which led me to Chez Miscarriage, which led me to many, many other blogs. I think I was googling something like "pregnant co-worker being a totally insentive bitch!" What do you know? Julie's blog popped up.

I had found my people.

My first hit of blog was to Deviant Woman (Monica). I was searching "hiccups during ovulation" and she popped up, although she was talking about her baby having hiccups while she was still pregnant. I found her writing fascinating and the similarities of having difficulty getting pregnant and then her sidelinks took it from there.

Mine too was Julie @ A little Pregnant. I found her from the article in American Baby or Parents or one of those baby mags. Since I was freshly pg at the time, I ended up printing out the ENTIRE archive & reading her entire story. She is one of my many, many internet heros.

My first blog hit was to Tess @ Dim Sum Mum- I didn't know blogs existed until I stumbled on hers about 11 months ago. It was all down hill from there, and now it is officially part of my daily routine.

My gateway drug nearly two years ago was Grrl (Chez Miscarriage) through her I found Julie (alittlepregnant). And after that, it was just someone who knows someone, etc. and I ended up the blog whore that I am today sitting in my office coming up with ways to get my next fix.

After becoming frustrated with just having one of those old-fashioned book journals, I decided to branch out to the internet. I hated all the gooey messageboards and mailing lists that I had joined and consequently left, and I thought that women who would blog would not be the babydust types. I was right of course, and came upon Julie and her massive list of blogs. Thank God for that...I don't know where I'd be without the blogs of others as well as comments left on my own.

I got my start when I started reading mimi smartypants in 2003.

I think my first hit was simultaneously Deborah's "The Trying Game" (love those spinning dice) and a blog about theatre "my London Life" by director Paul Miller.

I was stunned that I could combine writing which I love and all my infertility angst and snark. It was a revelation. And I am sure it has helped me write more this year offline on my scripts etc.
