I’m suffering from a bit of blogger’s block. It’s not that I can’t write or don’t want to write. It’s more that I don’t always have faith that what I’m thinking of writing will be interesting enough to you, my deep, deep readers. By the way, shallow readers are welcome too.
I have started quite a few posts which remain unfinished because a) I’ve lost my initial zest for the subject, and b) Baby E loves to play “bouncy, bouncy baby” on my lap right when I’m trying to concentrate. I don’t know about you, but I still haven’t developed a resistance to all of that cuteness.
In between excelling at unfinished posts and cute baby-ness, I’m maintaining another blog, Black Women Do Breastfeed, beginning life as a work-at-home mother, staying involved in local HIV prevention projects (on an unpaid basis) and realizing that I really, really like staying at home.
So readers here is your chance — tell me what you want me to write about. How can my writings entertain you? Don’t feel limited to parenting issues but don’t make me have to write a research paper . I promise to honor your requests. To prove it, I shall now recite the Brownie Guide promise (Barbados/British version):
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God,
To serve the Queen, and my country,
And to help other people,
And to keep the Brownie Guide Law.
There…I even mentioned serving the Queen (the Queen!!). How much more serious could I be?
