This adventure in blogging has been spurred by my partner who has recently taken up her own blog. (She's a great writer and you can find her at http://ladala.blogspot.com). I tried to write a blog a few years ago and found myself lacking in motivation to continue (read: my shit was boooring). I think I was trying to write not as myself, but as someone who wanted to please an audience, and had no idea what that (non-existent) audience wanted. So here, I say to you (my second non-existent audience) that I will speak only what I know (read: mothering, doula-ing, reading, feminist-ing, loving), and hope that is interesting to all of you! (If it's not, check out my partner's blog, she wrote a great piece called Growing Up Homo).
