Halfway There

I'm halfway through fixing my blogroll. I have updated and made some categories. The difference is that I have double & triple listed some people.

Why? Because I LIKE to be complicated, snort....I am an adoptee, infertile, a parent with secondary IF, a grieving parent, a person with ADD, and political; not necessarily in that order. And many people I read are like that.

So give me until the end of the day to put more links on, I'm working on it still. (ie. my adoption list is sparse, my parent list non-existent, give me a few more hours, K?)

Plus, I'm thinking of making a few lists within posts, or people on my lists who have gone through PPD or depression, and a list of "ADD Superstars" (I have to get a copy of that graphic button...hmm) and a list of female Canadian bloggers. (Catnip has one started, but I thought what the heck, I could too? Just because there aren't very many of us compared to other countries.) Plus a bunch of other link lists...

As you check any of these out BTW, some I lurk on and don't comment, some I read religiously, and some with cute adorable babies I read less on days when I am feeling a little bitter and infertile. (I love your kids, and I'm happy for you, heck I have two of my own...I just have to guard my emotions somedays, K?) Weirdly, I am less bothered by the discussion of older kids, just the newborns, but I digress...

If you have any to add, or you read me and want me to read you or link to you, leave links or names in the comments, or email me at aurelia dot cotta @ gmail dot com , but like I said I'm not quite done yet today, I just have to go shopping and buy food or we'll all starve through March Break.

(Oh and yes, I have tried just importing my bloglines list, but bloglines unsubscribes people occasionally, and I don't want that to happen, sooo, here we are, typing away)


  1. Oh goody! You added me! I am very, very honored, Aurelia Cotta.

  2. My blogroll needs some serious work. Maybe I could do that today. . .

  3. I know what you mean. But, for me, it's not so much the bloggers with newborns that hurt to read (except maybe the ones with twins). It's the ones who title their posts things like "17w4d" that make me want to cry.

  4. Thank you, Aurelia, for making the point about how somedays the newborn discussions are harder for you to take. It made me feel less alone on that point. While I've tried very hard to put my own infertility into context, each day is a new challenge. If you haven't stopped by I'm going to mention your post in my blog tonight: Would be pleased to be added to your blogroll.

  5. I stop in on your blog as often as I can... My blogroll is always being added to as I see more stories. Please link back to mine if you can. Thanks!

  6. Wow, that's some list! Well done, and thanks for putting in little old me... x
