What if: one is reading?
...what if people are reading?
...I don't say the right things and the smart things?
...I really am alone out there?
...people think I'm a total idiot?
...people think I'm a total basketcase?
...I say too much?
...I don't say enough?
...I'm not political enough?
...I'm too political?
...I'm too queer?
...I'm not queer enough?
...someone gets mad? 
...I have nothing to say?
...I have lots of things to say but I'm too chicken to say it?
...people think I'm the worst mother in the world?

What if ....


  1. Heh. No worries on any account. I've addressed this a couple of times in my own blog and the truth is that none of this matters. If nothing else you've written something for yourself to look back on. A permanent tribute to your family and your struggles and victories in life. Even if nobody does read it, you will in the future.

    For the record, I find your blog interesting and erudite. Keep it up. I'll keep reading.

  2. I'm reading and I love what you have to say.

  3. I love your blog and think you're awesome. I think most bloggers would feel the way you do...kind of putting yourself out there for everyone.

  4. I'm pretty sure most people who write a blog have those same feelings now and then. That's okay. No matter what you do, you'll have doubts. Keep writing. Keep sharing. I think it's important for you to say the things you have to say, and for you to share your perspective.

    Thank you for sharing your self.

  5. I think you're blog is great. I probably 'follow' close to 20, but yours is one of 3 I check daily. Hoping for more. Keep it up.

  6. I have read your blog since I came across it one night when I couldn't sleep. It is always well written, informational and funny.

  7. I totally love what you have to say! Keep it up!

  8. i think your blog is amazing. i check it every day, sometimes, more than once, just in case you've found the stolen time to post twice! i hope that you come to WPG this summer...i'd sure love to meet you and your family. plus, georgia grey, she's stupendous!

  9. OC - we are so coming this summer. Folk Fest time. Love to meet you too. And am totally jonesing to meet that GG.

    Thanks everyone. Best blog followers ever :)

  10. I found your blog the other day and I love reading it! Nice to know there are ore families out there
