If a blog falls in the forest...

One of the first blogs I ever read was Chez Miscarriage. Someone told me about getupgrrl when we were going through all our shit, and while her challenges were very different from ours, I found her almost-daily blogging on her grief and excitement and fear related to procreation a tremendous comfort, a help, and almost always, a good laugh.

I read with the excitement I feel for someone I know as she progressed through her eventual pregnancy. I related to all the assvice she was getting, I even chimed in from my lurker status when she asked for baby product recommendations. Reading her birth story, I cried as I held my own longed-for baby.

Then, on October 05, 2005, this: Working on the next big bloggy idea... Silence. Chez Miscarriage is now Chez Bebe, and I can completely see how one would need a break from YEARS of blogging on grief and disappointment. But I still check in occasionally, okay, weekly, okay, even more often than that. I miss her voice. Mind you, I don't even know this woman.

But the thing is, she had a following. A HUGE following. So if she came back with her big new bloggy idea, I'd know, right? Someone would tell me? Maybe we could take turns checking and tell each other? I'm just sayin'...

Aargh -- I thought the purpose of this post was to tell me where to find her!

I too miss her tremendously, which is a testament to her writing skill, since I don't have That in common with her.

Whoever hears first has to spread the word...

Not only has it been 6+ months since her last post; there are no archives of her old postings. Gone. Vanished. Poof. So sad.

She had to take her archives down because people were plagiarizing them. SO sad.
