This has been a crazy week, for a variety of reasons. There’s a lot going on around the ALI blogosphere, so I wanted to make sure you’re all in the loop. Check out all the events and fun stuff happening around the fertility web right now:
Mel at Stirrup Queens has opened her seventh annual Creme de la Creme list for 2012. Go back through your blog archives for this year: what was your BEST post? Another way to think of it: which post would you be super sad to lose if it were to be the ONLY post deleted from your blog the last year? Everyone’s got at least one. Pick your best and send it on over to Mel to be included in the Best of the Best Posts Around the ALI Blogosphere. I already sent in mine – place your bets/guesses in the comments which one I picked this year!
OMG folks: tell me you’re listening to the Bitter Infertiles podcast. No? Ladies and gentlemen: you must. It’s brills. BRILLS. Mo from Mommy Odyssey, Cristy from Searching for our Silver Lining, Shelly from Tales from the Waiting Room, and sometimes Jess from Too Many Fish to Fry. Witty commentary, vagina talk, the joys and sorrows of obsessive peeing on sticks – folks, it’s genius. And there are 8 whole episodes for you to catch up on!
Attain Fertility is currently running a daily trivia challenge. They did this challenge last year and I was totally on board. (And don’t worry, the questions aren’t too hard. Promise ) You can enter once a day and hey – chance to win $2500? Yes please! Click the link above or the banner to the right to enter now. I’ve been entering every day and you should too! The contest runs through December 8th, so there’s still plenty of chances to enter.
Live on the West Coast? Join Fertility Planit January 12-13, 2013 for their consumer fertility conference! Early bird registration is open through November 15th; you can save 20% on show tickets by registering now. AND! More awesomesauce: register at any time with code FPS13CP8 and you’ll save 5% – even off early bird prices! Also, there’s a 90% chance I will actually BE at the conference, so it’s a great opportunity to get to meet me, too
Looking for infertility and adoption education even sooner than January? Live on the East Coast and in the New England area? Join me and RESOLVE New England on Saturday, November 3rd for the conference that set me on the path I’m on now. Larry and I went to this conference 3 years ago and I can’t believe this will be my fourth time going. I can’t speak enough on how amazing it is to sit in a room with 200 other people who completely understand what it’s like to go through infertility. It’s amazing. Go. Register. Say hi to me while I’m running around the conference all day
I’m sure I’ve missed plenty more awesomesauce around the ALI blogosphere.
