Today we’re continuing with Day 3 of NaBloPoMo here on Lost Daughters and the subject today is Blogging Adoption and Everyday Life.
The question posed to me as the writer assigned to this post is: How is blogging about adoption different from blogging about other topics? Do you maintain an non-adoption blog on top of adoption blogging? If so, how do they differ?
I have maintained a blog for the past seven years where I write daily. That blog is not adoption related, at all.
I have only recently started writing about adoption, and it has been an emotional rollercoaster ride to get here. I have typed this post through my tears and come back to edit and polish it, and I realize I have verbally bled all over my computer. I am thankful for the safe place Lost Daughters provides to share all of this.
If you would had told me last year that I would be writing about adoption at Lost Daughters, or anywhere, I would have said you were crazy. Writing about adoption was the furthest thing from my mind, for several reasons -- the first of which was fear that had me in it's ugly grip. In this post I will tell you why, and the changes that have taken place since then, in what has become the longest blog post I've ever written. :)
