A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.

Honesty, a picture or two and 4 years.

Welcome to 2010, everyone.

This will be my 4th year blogging. 4 long, difficult years: growing years. My blogging habits are quite terrible, and I am the first to admit that I don't blog nearly as often as I want, nor as often as I should.

When I began this blog, I had no defined focus as to what this blog would be about: and it showed. I look back on my first year or so of blogging and say: "What was I thinking?!?!". Over the years it became more and more focused on abuse issues both in and out of the church (particularly child related), leaving fundamentalism, infertility and occasionally, a rant or two on some current political event.

It has definitely been proven to be a very honest blog. I will freely admit, it is not a picture of my entire life. To be so, I think it would only prove to hurt people: people that I care about. What I do say is the truth, and I don't shy away from difficult topics.

What will the next four years in the blogging world bring I wonder?

Hello!

My name is Elisabeth, and I am an infertility / repeated pregnancy loss "veteran". You can read a little bit about me and my experiences in my (not very updated) blog: drhousewife.blogspot.com . I am completing a PhD in Counseling Psychology, and my dissertation is focused upon the impact of infertility on marriage. I believe strongly that there is a need for better support services for men and women who are undergoing IF diagnosis and treatment, and my hope is that this study will aid in the development of such services.

I am contacting you after stumbling across your blog. I am recruiting participants for my study, and wanted to invite you and your husband to take part. All that would be involved would be the completion of an online survey, that would take approximately 20 minutes. All couples who complete the surveys will receive a voucher good for a pair of free movie tickets at a Regal Cinemas.

Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at UTInfertilityResearch@gmail.com . I have included the criteria for participation below.

Feel free to pass information along to anyone you know who might be interested in contributing to this study.

Best of luck to you!
