A WIMJ update – on a personal note

Posted by Write In My Journal on November 18th, 2008 filed in This site

Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted a new story. Please know that I haven’t forgotten about the project!

The good news is that the reason I haven’t been out and about as much is that my wife and I are expecting our second child! We’re very excited for the new addition (due in late May).

However, having a pregnant wife along with a very active toddler who is running around, drawing on my iPod, throwing my computer mouse against the wall and generally acting like a normal 18 month-old means fewer outings. I’ve also been driving to work more often (instead of taking the train) due to hectic mornings wrangling my son and helping my morning-sick-feeling wife. In addition to all that, the entire family is just getting over nasty head colds.

It’s been an eventful few weeks.

Things are falling back into a routine now, and I hope to have some new posts up shortly. I’ve also realized there are so many stories out there waiting to be told, and I obviously can’t collect them all, so I’ve decided to open up Write In My Journal to contributors! I think it would be wonderful to have dozens (hundreds?) of people out there collecting stories that can be shared on this site.

Interested in participating? Check out the new Contributors page for all the details, or feel free to email me with any questions.

    Oooooo! I regret not being a good candidate for Contribution… more of the “small children/pregnancy” thing.

    CONGRATS! That’s so exciting!

    I live in the Midwest, so maybe I’ll find an interesting Kansan for you. :)

    Hey! Congrats to you guys!

    I’m in the Orlando area and go to school so maybe I can contribute. I was considering starting something like this anyway! I just have to gather the nerve. :)

    Thanks everyone – I appreciate it!

    @Sarah – You should definitely do it! The first time’s the hardest because you don’t know what to expect, but afterward you’ll think, “That was easier than I thought it would be.”

    Congratulations! That’s a pretty awesome reason for not updating! :)
