It’s time again for my annual Blogoversary post. Five years have slipped past in the blink of an eye. It’s been my honor since 2015 to share this tiny corner of the interweb with some of the bestest women I’ve had the privilege of “meeting” in the Blog Lands—and in some cases, meeting in real life too!
How to lament this past year since the last Blogoversary? As far as The Endo Zone goes, it’s been my quietest year yet for publishing posts. Real Life got in the way, and more pressing matters unfortunately took my attention from posting. But in 2020 I’ve made a decision to post here more often, and I’m trying to make good with that commitment as best I can. Already in less than three months I’ve nearly reached my total posts from last year! My aim is to move this space away from strictly endometriosis and/or infertility as cause/effect; I’ve still been brainstorming names for a new blog but haven’t found one yet that speaks to me.
Much has changed since the Endo Zone was born five years ago, the most significant (and surprising) of which has been Jake and my decision to resolve Childless Not By Choice (CNBC). If you’ve been around here for even a little while, you’ll know that CNBC wasn’t a one-time choice which Jake and I made and then moved on from. Instead, resolving without a child still sometimes rears its head and causes us uncertainty. It’s definitely not a linear course. This is a space to write about that.
A heartfelt Thank You to everyone who’s been at this site since the beginning, and Welcome to all those who’ve joined since! I have slightly more than 200 followers and I’m grateful for every one of you.
Last, a giant frowny face to WordPress for needlessly revamping the editor and making it even harder to use than usual; writing this post was no easy feat with the new settings!
