751st Issue of the LFCA

Welcome to today's edition of Connections Abound. The point of Lost and Found is to level the support playing field. When LFCA works correctly, the newest blogger with the smallest readership can receive the same level of support as the oldest blogger with the largest readership. Anyone can submit news to LFCA by clicking here.

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

  • Anniversary of the Lost and Found: Next Saturday marks the 5 year anniversary of the Lost and Found.  At first, it was just an updated post on Stirrup Queens, and in a few weeks, it will be the anniversary of when we moved to this address.  Happy 5 year anniversary, little LFCA.
  • IComLeavWe: The August IComLeavWe list is now open.
  • IComLeavWe Tracker: Keiko made a tracker that can be used each IComLeavWe.  She writes, "I made a blank ICLW tracking template in Google Docs (I'm about to start plugging in URLs into my own version). Anywho, it's set to be shared publicly, view only, and then folks can just go to File > Download As and save to their own comps/Google docs. The dates are listed as numeric dates only, so it can be used for any month."
  • First Time Reading the LFCA: If this is your first time reading the LFCA or you need a refresher about how the LFCA works, please read this post. It has everything you need to know about getting your news in the LFCA.
  • Quicklink Resources: Regular ALI Blogroll: If you would like your blog added to the ALI blogroll, please email me directly with your blog url and category pick. More information about being added is contained in that link. Password-Protected Blogroll: If you would like your password-protected blog added to the blogroll, please fill out the form.
