I know some stuff about the folks on AuPairMom that I bet you wish you knew.
Just to name a few:
I know the real name of TakingAComputerLunch.
I know what kind of music CalifMom enjoys.
I know how to reach DarthaStewart with a moment’s notice, whenever I need her opinion.
Lucky me, I know the email addresses and many of the actual names belonging to the wonderfully wise women and men who make up the AuPairMom community. Even so, I wish I knew them better.
I bet you wish you knew them better, too.
Of course, we keep our real identities secret here on AuPairMom, because we talk about some uncomfortable issues. We need to be real about our emotions, our hangups, and our struggles.
To help us be more honest when we share here, nearly all of us use a “nom de mom” or a blogonym so that we can ‘be’ the same person every time we comment yet also ‘be’ private about who we are in the so-called real world.
Respecting this need to keep our ‘real’ identities a secret, we occasionally take a moment to share a bit more about ‘hoo’ we are.
Here’s your chance to peek out from behind those sunglasses.
Whether you are a regular contributor, an occasional wise voice, someone who’s sent me a query to post, or a lovecat lurker who reads regularly and sends silent support, here’s your chance:
Tell us a little bit more about who you are.
Use the comments section to divulge a few details and maybe even some secrets. Tell us
- What brings you to AuPairMom?
- What you wish we could talk about more?
- How might you change the world if you were the HostParentInCharge?
… Or, tell us anything else you’d like to share!
