Did you ever read those Choose Your Own Adventure books in middle school? I did. I couldn’t resist even though my parents didn’t consider them to be “good” reading – meaning reading that would help my language skills. Unfortunately, the novelty wore off pretty quickly once I realized that they all had basically the same plot over and over and over again. I also discovered Judy Blume’s more age-appropriate fare and moved on to Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret.
I thought of them the other day as I pondered – likely at a 2am feeding, I honestly don’t remember – what to do with this here blog. I see two possible paths: if you want to continue writing on this blog, turn to page 4. If you want to start a new blog, turn to page 8.
The thing is, I can’t decide. Part of me wants to make a clean break, start fresh now that we have embarked on parenthood. This blog was designed to document our infertility journey and for now, that journey is over. Part of me thinks that it would be inappropriate to continue documenting our journey in parenthood on this blog.
On the other hand, this blog has meant a lot to me and to a lot of other people. I wouldn’t delete it – it would stay up for all to see, but part of me cannot imagine not having this blog.
So, I’m putting it to a vote. Help me decide what to do!
UPDATED: the ayes have it. I’m going to stick around here. Thanks for voting!
