I have been trying to think about how to introduce this new blog, and myself, to the people who read blogs. How can I be clever, witty, funny and tell you how this blog will be different than all of the others? I will introduce myself and my tell you my story in a later post. Here is the intro:
This blog will be for, and about, those of us that have made a choice to not have children. For a variety of reasons, none of which really matter. And how we are living full and rewarding lives. Just about any and every topic is fair game including: marriage/relationships, sex, family (in-laws), politics, travel, food, pets, money, and anything else that comes to mind or annoys me on an almost daily basis.
What it won’t be is a place for people to convince me I am wrong in my choice or tell me how much I am missing as a result (or as I woman, I HATE that one especially). There will be guest bloggers as well, some that have made the same choice and others that have made a different choice and yet still manage to understand this perspective. I thank them in advance for dedicating some time to this.
So jump in and see where this might go. I can’t promise it will always be profound or live-altering. But it should be fun, or amusing. Just my thoughts on choosing to stay childless in a world where everyone is having kids or talking about having kids.
