Lost and Found

This list will always be open and updated daily so please check it from time to time to see if someone left a message for you. Feel free to link to this post from your blog in order to have a centralized place for people to leave googleable messages.

Directions: when leaving a message, make it as googleable as possible. Use the full name of the blog or if the blogger had a unique sign-in name (for instance, I also use The Town Criers which is more unusual--and therefore, more googleable--than Mel) use that too. I may have a blogger's contact information on hand, so if you want me to pass along your email address or information (I do not give out email addresses, sorry), let me know that too. I will only pass along an email address if someone has given me concrete permission. Your message will go up on the list faster if you leave it in the comments section, but you can also email me your message (especially if you're giving personal information like an email address and want me to hold onto it and have someone contact me instead of posting your email address) directly at thetowncriers@gmail.com. You can put up as many messages as you wish, but make each blog its own entry (for instance, search for blog X in one message and search for blog Y in a second message). I may edit messages for clarity or brevity. Once messages become extremely old, I will move them to a second archive post which will also be accessible through this post and can still be found via google and other search engines.

LOST AND FOUND AND CONNECTIONS ABOUND

LOST
  • I have missed getupgrrl from Chez Miscarriage for the last couple of years. I would love to know how she is and there is one particular post that I wish I could access. If anyone has information about how to ask her for access (and find out how her little boy is!) I would be so grateful.
  • (1) Naked Ovary, naked ovary, naked ovary, naked ovary. Naked ovary. Come out, come out, wherever you are. (2) I desperately miss Karen at Naked Ovary.
  • I would love to know what is happening with Kay/Hanazono who wrote Hanazono. Is she still adopting? Is she already a mother? Kay - write and let us know.
  • How about Sube at Waiting for a Crumbcake?? I always wondered about her.
  • Could someone help me out please? I would love to continue to read Baby Blues at I Will Be Mom, but it looks like it has been changed to invited readers. If anyone could contact her to let her know that I would love to stay as a reader I would very much appreciate it (FOUND! See below).
  • (1) I drop out of the loop for a few weeks (OK, over a month) & everyone goes PWP :(
    First I find out about Baby Blues & now Vanilla too. I think I better get off my butt & back into blogging. (2) I would love to be able to read again Vanilla at Vanilla Dreams. If you are reading, e-mail me at wotpl@shaw.ca, or if anyone knows how to contact them, let me know! (FOUND! See below).
  • I would love to be able to read A Few Good Eggs still. It has gone password protected. If you are reading, e-mail me at wotpl@shaw.ca, or if anyone knows how to contact them, let me know!
  • (1) I've been wondering for years, literally, how Danae from Hardscrabble is doing. (2) I second the question about Danae--she is one of my favorite bloggers, ever, and sorely missed.
  • I'd also love to know how the amazing Dead Bug is doing. Has her new baby arrived yet? (FOUND! See below).
  • Another blogger I have wondered about for years is Sarah from Badlands. How are you Sarah?
  • I would also love to hear from Beth (Prop Your Hips Up) about life after HG and now with Leah Catherine...
  • How about Patiently Waiting, she turned her blog to invite-only, but I would like to know if the birth mom had her baby yet.

Naked Ovary, naked ovary, naked ovary, naked ovary. Naked ovary. Come out, come out, wherever you are.

That should google, don't you think?

Thanks for sharing my news!

Inconceivable said...

JJ has helped me some already (thank you!) and I am looking for those who have immune issues and have used alternative therpies to correct them or IVIg.

Thanks for doing this Mel!

Kristen said...

I would like to put a call out to anyone with recurrent miscarriage, either those who are still going through it or those who are pregnant/have given birth after recurrent miscarriage.

Thanks so much! What a great idea!

shazz said...

If anyone could help me out pls?? I love to read http://babybluebabbles.blogspot.com/ but it looks like it has been changed to invited readers. If anyone could contact her to let her know that I would love to stay as a reader I would very much appriciate it.

Meg said...

Great great idea!!!!!!! I wish I could be as creative as you....

Baby Blues said...

Thanks Mel! Another brilliant idea. Please post my email for anyone I missed to invite. It's babybluebabbles@yahoo.com.

Jenna said...

Lovely thought... It just so happens that I have an announcement. I already put this in my blog, but on Wednesday of this week Oprah is doing a repeat of the 30 Something in America Show where they discussed infertility in one of the segments. Just an FYI in case some people missed it.

Chili said...

There are two blogs I used to read that have gone PWP that I would love to be able to read again - A Few Good Eggs (http://a-few-good-eggs.blogspot.com/) and Vanilla Dreams (http://vanilladreams.typepad.com/vanilla_dreams/).

If either of you are reading, e-mail me at wotpl@shaw.ca, or if anyone knows how to contact them, let me know!

Jules said...

I drop out of the loop for a few weeks (OK, over a month) & everyone goes PWP :(

First I find out about Baby Blues & now Vanilla to.

I think I better get off my but & back into blogging.

Thanks for this Mel. Another fantastic idea.

nancy said...

New blog for myself. I used to have a blog that I wrote in all the time for over a year (200+ posts!) but due to some crazies out there, I decided to start anew.

I am now at http://thenewlifeofnancy.blogspot.com

It's a tertiary infertility blog. I do talk about other things in my life too, not just my current infertility, but I don't talk about my children too much and I do warn, so it won't upset anyone without them knowing the content first.

Thank you!

Beagle said...

I had just started reading Naked Ovary when she disapeared.

I'm also hoping Gravida Zero starts a new blog . . . but so glad she has great news in her life!

Tigger said...

I am in an odd spot in life: a non-ttc infertile in a fertile world. Is there anyone else out there who is in this spot? I'd love to read other blogs from people who are dealing with this same thing.

nina said...

I've been wondering for years, literally, how Danae from Hardscrabble is doing.

I'd also love to know how the amazing Dead Bugs is. Has her new baby arrived yet?

In addition, I want to chime in concerning Getupgrrrl and Karen from Naked Ovary. A little while ago, Tertia wrote that she'd post an update about Karen, but I haven't been able to find it.

However, you all are: I hope life is treating you well.

Alexa said...

I second the question about Danae--she is one of my favorite bloggers, ever, and sorely missed.
Another blogger I have wondered about for years is Sarah from Badlands. I would also love to hear from Beth (Prop Your Hips Up) about life after HG...

DeadBug said...

Lovely ladies, thank you for checking on me. I am still around and dropping in occasionally to the IF blogosphere. This unearned pregnancy is now at 34 weeks, and I can still hardly credit it. Feel like I've made it up.

If all goes well, I will post once he has arrived.

Jason and Samantha said...

How bout Patiently Waiting, she turned her blog to invite-only, but I would like to know if the birth mom had her baby yet.

Thanks :)

Also, whenever you get the time, can you switch my blog to pregnant after infertility? Thanks!! :D

Fertilize Me said...

As i was sitting in traffic today I was thinking about all you wonderful DC's that have DC GTG's and I would love to do that in the Tampa Bay area in Florida. Problem is, No one visits my blog from Fl excpet 2 people that are pretty far away. (like 4 plus hours away)zI was wondering if by chance you could post this on your "CONNECTION" Tab and if anyone live in the Tampa Bay area that would like to have some social outtings, email Farahbeth@gmail.com

nina said...

thanks for the update, dead bug!

hoping these last few weeks of pregnancy will be uneventful and as comfy as possible for you.

lots of wellwishes,
nina

Bumble said...

Yep, that's me above...I've been blogging again since around Novemberish :)

It's not the same, though, anymore, as I have to censor the poop out of myself b.c of prying eyes, but once in a while I feel like the old me.

Thanks for looking for me!

Also--Danae had a baby!!!!!! :)))))
