Well the questions are pouring in! Or if not pouring, slowly trickling just like the leaky faucet in my bathroom.
You’re a foster parent right? How can you have pictures of your foster kids online?
The adoption is completed so now I can post pictures all the live long day. The older pictures were private at the time and have since been made public.
How come your older entries seem incomplete?
I’m still transferring everything in from a formerly private blog. Because of the nature of the posts some require removal of personal information. I have many left to edit before I make them public. I was really organized about the process at first, but now I’ve found myself focusing on other things. Like mopping the floors for the first time in 3 years. Some day I do hope to have more of the older posts available. If you happen to notice personal information in an old post please let me know. I may have accidentally made it public without removing a name.
Why does Violet throw up in so many posts?
She has cyclic vomiting syndrome and generally has episodes 2-3 times a month. She has been sick since infancy and was diagnosed at 17 months. She was born with an intestinal malrotation. She was misdiagnosed with CVS at 17 months, and (hopefully!) correctly diagnosed with an intestinal malrotation and volvulus at 35 months. Older posts will refer to her as having CVS, recent post will refer to her as having a malrotation.
How do you pronounce your older daughter’s name?
Mariyah is pronounced Ma-rye-uh (like Mariah Carey) Here is a little more on her name.
I noticed you work in the movie industry. Do you hang out with cool celebrities?
Yes of course! I’d love to chat with you more about it, but I have lunch scheduled with Angelina.*
Can I write a guest post for your blog? Do you want to write a guest post on mine?
That might be fun! Send me an email. NoBohnsAboutIt (at) gmail (dot) com or use the contact page.
I’m visiting NYC, do you want to hang out?
I’d love to! We are super busy all. the. time. but it doesn’t hurt to email and ask.
I emailed you (or tweeted you or facebook messaged you or sent a smoke signal) and you never wrote back
I am one of those people who can’t type from my phone and doesn’t know how to turn on talk to text. Whenever I get a message I always mean to respond, but if I’m not at the computer I often forget. Please do resend, you can even just copy and paste the same thing over again.
If I link back, can I use your images on my website/blog/etc?
Probably. If you’re nice. But please send me an email first to confirm. NoBohnsAboutIt (at) gmail (dot) com or use the contact page.
Do you write sponsored content on your blog and host affiliate links?
I’ve actually never been asked this before, but the frequently asked questions section seems like a good spot to squeeze in a disclosure. I DO use affiliate links and I DO occasionally write sponsored content (it will be noted in the post). I won’t ever link anything or endorse anything that I don’t believe in, so if I make a recommendation for something please know that I do genuinely stand behind that product.
