I'm becoming convinced that no one reads my blog anymore. I'm challenging YOU (yes, you, my reader...is there anyone out there?) to prove me wrong on this. I'm calling on all my readers to de-lurk and leave me a comment. Don't worry, I'll give you something to comment on.
What do you think about my new profile photo? And my new name? OK, so it's not a NEW name...it's always been my name. I just didn't let you in on it until now. After much thinking, I decided to post my actual name instead of my alias because, well, I just felt like it. Finally. My former alias, Elizabeth, is actually my middle name. For those of you paying attention, yes, my first name is actually a derivation of my middle name. It's my mom's OB's fault. He told her that she was having a boy (no ultrasound...just based on Mom's pregnancy symptoms, how stupid is that?), so they only picked out a boy's name. When I turned out to be a girl, Mom and Dad were under a time crunch to pick a name they liked. Mom always liked Lisa, and she wanted her first daughter to have the same middle name as her, so voila! The girl whose first and middle name are essentially the same. Mom didn't know. Dad didn't know. I was their first child. They thought the doctor knew what he was talking about with the boy prediction. And that's the story of my name. The end.
I want to change the title of this blog, but I'm having trouble settling on a name. I need suggestions. I've been toying with a few thoughts, but nothing is coming together. I want it to reflect the purpose of this blog, which is to celebrate the daily joys and challenges of a growing adoptive family. So send your ideas! In fact, if you have the winning title idea and I end up using it, I will send you a little thank-you gift (I have no idea what, but I will come up with something fantastic). I will need to know some way of contacting you, but if your blog link is in your comment, I will try to reach you there.
If you are still not inspired with something to leave in the comment box, then you can answer one of the following questions:
How did you find this blog in the first place?
What makes you come back (what do you find interesting)?
What kinds of things do you wish I would write about and haven't yet?
See? If you answer one of those questions, I might have a better idea of what to write about here. Win-win situation all around.
Let the commenting begin.
