Tuesday's Connections Abound

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The Face-to-Face Lost and Found page is permanently located beneath this current post. Old Connections Abound can be accessed via the date or subject archives listed on the sidebar. Check the submissions page, FAQ, and ways to get involved for additional information. Email me at thetowncriers@gmail.com with any questions/concerns.

Lost and Found is open to anyone in the infertility, pregnancy loss, adoption, pregnancy-and-parenting after infertility, assisted conception, living child-free after infertility or loss community (as well as anyone I inadvertently missed on that list). Please support the list as well as anyone posting announcements below.

Connections Abound

  • The next 100 Words Project is up on the Bridges site. The theme for October is Love. Please participate--the one for September 11th was amazing. The deadline is October 2nd.
  • IComLeavWe for September has begun.
  • Bridges continues to post daily. And it continues to be an amazing resource for insight into a multitude of worlds. And I'm not just saying that because I work on it.
  • Participate: Creating Motherhood is creating a list of what not to watch or read if you are in an emotional space about infertility or loss. Go give your suggestions.
  • Participate: Reader Request Music Monday is next week and Sunday is your final day to make your suggestion at Barren Albion. My request? Sister Goldenhair. I'll admit it. I love that song.
  • Help Her: The Young and the Infertile has Wordpress questions. Go help her out.
  • Support Her: Shaken Mama continues to write for Health.com.
  • Going Private: Wobbly Bits is going private. If you want to continue reading, contact her soon.
  • Question: How to Get from 0 to Pregnant... has a question: "I’m considering doing my final IVF at CCRM and would love input/advice from those who have cycled there. Which doctors they would recommend, etc." Head over if you can answer.
  • If you notice another loading slow down or receive error messages for Stirrup Queens or Lost and Found, please let me know. Now I'm nervous every time I add anything to the side bar!
