should I pause this blog?

I am toying with the idea of stopping this blog until I do another IVF.  Part of me wants to continue writing about everyday life, and about Emma, and I am sure that I will continue, but I don't know whether to continue publishing or simply to keep the posts private, as drafts.  Lately I have been mostly writing about stuff that is happening in daily life, and not so much about fertility issues.  I have a feeling that is not very interesting for people to read.  I haven't had any comments for the past few weeks, which is why I am not very inspired to continue sharing.  I will have to make it out for myself why exactly I am blogging.  I started out wanting to reach out and help, and at the same time wanting to be part of a community of people with similar issues.  I am not of much help at the moment, given that I am mothering and not battling with fertility issues, and my own life is not that interesting to anybody other than myself.

So, having said that, I think I will stop here.  I am going to restart when I am preparing for my next IVF, probably this year.  I will post occasionally, mostly if I encounter anything that I find useful for the infertility issues that we face, or if I feel like writing about my stillborn son.  Otherwise, I don't think I should bore people with my mundane life.

I wish everybody all the best, and thank you for the love.


  1. Please don't stop. I love reading about life with Emma and without Adrian. A Blog shouldn't be about worrying about comments. It should be done for you

  2. I agree! Post what you want or start another blog about mothering. I've never commented before but really enjoy reading. I love reading about your new adventures in motherhood on earth and that happiness it brings you. Also enjoy the fashion, shopping and weight loss posts. I have blogs I read right away when they pop in my reader, others I'll save when I'm bored. Yours is one I read right away.
    In the end, decide what is best for you and not your readers.

  3. Please don't stop.

    I hate it when people stop or start brand new blogs. We want to read all about your lives. Maybe you could make a tabbed page with all your invitro posts for easier reading? I haven't been commenting because I'm just stuck in a blah.
    It is very disheartening to come and see that no one has commented on your blog though, I know its somethign that we have become accustomed to so when my comments died down I was like what....... Then I had to rememeber why i started the blog. For me. I started it for me, and it shoudnlt matter who reads it. ,

  4. agreed! Please don't stop. I enjoy reading your blog as well. I don't comment either simply because I don't have time, but I still enjoy reading.

  5. Also guilty of reading but not commenting (I blame Google reader, so convenient, BUT no way to comment). Anyway, thinking of you either way!
