My Fairy Blogmother

in Blogging

JJ at Reproductive Jeans has created a tribute meme that bloggers can award to the person who inspired them into blogging.

I owe the existence of this blog (and it’s sister, Drama 2B Mama) to the Barren Bi+ches Book Tour. Last Spring, I read Waiting for Daisy and, like any self-respecting book geek, googled it to find out more. At the top of the search list was Stirrup Queens’ Barren Bi+tches Book Brigade. Mel, the first blogger I ever “met” said, “all you need is a book and a blog.” I was so excited about “talking” with others about this book, about not needing to actually go to anyone’s house or clean my own, that I took the plunge and began blogging.

So, dear, sweet, beautiful Mel, you inspired me that day and you continue to inspire me every day. I am in awe of your creativity in writing, in filmmaking and songwriting, MS-Painting, bartending, in bagel-making, in Super-Hubbing, in helping and connecting, in rallying the troops, in your literary advice-giving (which is NOT assvice-ful), and now your international spokeswomanship. In your sensitivity and your sensibility.

The most fertile of people would be envious of your prolificness (it’s a word — I checked).

Thank you, Fairy Blogmother, for opening this world to me and for making it so textured and colorful.

You’re making me all weepy–and it isn’t just because it is after midnight and I should be in bed and tired=emotional. This post meant the world to me. Thank you.
