Quick Public Announcement

Did you cry last week, when you read the editor's note at the end of Catherine Newman's post at Babycenter? You know, the one that says she won't be writing there anymore? I did.

I have read Bringing Up Ben and Birdy since before Birdy was born. In fact, it's the first "blog" I ever read, and it was through reading it that I found Psycho Kitty, and through her that I found all of you, and thus began my own blog.

When I think about it, without Catherine Newman, my life would be very different. As much as I insist that blogging, for me, is "just an outlet", or "just a community", it is also true that those two things are incredibly important to me and my sanity. While I have no desire to make money from the blog, or become published because of the blog, I still rely on it to lift my spirits every day. It's a really big part of my life.

So thank you, Catherine, for sharing your life in such a beautiful and inspiring way for the last 3 years. Thank you for introducing me to this world of people that would become such wonderful friends.

And thank you for not going away entirely. Her new column can be found here. And look! She has a "real" blog now, too.
