The Texture Of Things

PSA: Numero Dos

April 10th, 2008

Despite my haphazard posting schedule, there are still readers out there, some of whom I believe do not care to read about my pregnancy. I don’t want to chase off any reader, but there are some pregnancy-related things I do want to write about. So, the question on my mind lately has been how to separate out the pregnancy-related posts in a way that is immediately recognizable, allowing readers to choose whether to continue reading or not.

I’ve given this a lot of thought, and this is the best solution I can come up with.

The title of every post containing pregnancy-related chatter will begin with Dos, standing for Numero Dos, as in Baby # 2. Here is an example:

“Dos: Coming Soon to a Blog Near You”

And before the text body of each Dos entry, I will link to this entry explaining what “Dos:” means.

I hope this:
1. works.
2. is worth it to somebody, anybody.

Thank you for your time. Suggestions for improvement are always welcome.

    It is you life and that is what I am interested in reading about. Being ‘in the family way’ is part of your life. I might even learn (okay, I will) something new on the subject. So post away about belly size, morning sickness, or what ever you have to say. If it disturbs me, I’ll puke and then come back and finish reading. But thanks for the consideration. It is your space. Do as you please.

    Huh, and I thought you were acting out of concern for the infertiles, rather than the sensitive-stomached! Actually, I quite like reading about other people’s pregnancies, as long as the pregnant person writing is happy about being pregnant. That doesn’t mean you can’t bitch about symptoms — please, feel free to moan about swollen ankles or getting up a million times at night to pee, because I do like to be reminded of the uncomfortable, unattractive parts of pregnancy. As long as you don’t complain about the gender of your unborn child, or otherwise act as if a second child is a burden rather than a blessing, I’ll be happy to read your Dos entries.

    Have I said congratulations yet? You’ve got my best wishes, too!

    Thanks, Summer. 🙂 You are one of the people I was thinking of. And I started to write a response to this, but it got so long that I’m going to turn it into a post.

    Coffeypot – I will try not to write too much about pee, but I make no guarantees. 😉

    Whatever, baby. Write all you want about even the most gut-churning aspects of your pregnancy. This is the stuff of life — literally!

    Censorship is for the weak!
