Post Piperism? What’s Next?

I’m not really a blogger. A year ago I didn’t even know what a blogger was. I’m a writer and this blog belongs to the Piper. She’s the star. And she gives me plenty of material. That you choose to read it flatters me beyond words. That you’ve embraced the joy that is Piper and laughed a long with me fuels this blog every day. That I’ve learned so much about the process of writing and captured so many of the details of our family’s year is just icing on the cake. I’m grateful, and I’m starting to wonder what’s next.

We’ve reached more than 40,000 hits. Sissy and I have written 250 posts. That means we have about 100 left to complete our 365 days of piperism. Here are a few of the things Piper’s taught me a long the way:

Piper Dharma

I’ll Stop the World and Melt With You

When I Look Up I Just Trip Over Things

Courage Comes in Small Packages

So, what do I do once I reach my goal? What happens to piperism? Do we start a new blog? A new project? Do we hit print and put this project on a shelf to pull down one day when Piper says ‘tell me what I was like as a kid’? Thoughts?

I’d love to hear from you. So would Piper.

  1. First of all, THAT PICTURE.

    Secondly, I think you have a knack for capturing a conversation and getting the punch line in there efficiently and effectively. I wish I was so efficient with words. But alas, I’m long-winded. I think that’s what’s so special about this blog, the tidbits of convo that show the essence of Piper’s wit and your appreciation for her love and innocence.

    My opinion is to keep going! It’s perfect as it is.

    • I KNOW!

      I like “efficient” and “effective” more than “hurried,” which is usually what happens. It’s 6:40 a.m. and I know I have exactly three minutes before Piper crawls in bed with me. I rummage through my purse or scroll through my phone for a snippet of what I wrote down yesterday as I was shooting coffee through my nostrils laughing at the P. Thanks for your vote! You always make me smile.

  2. I’d read about Piper as long as she can stand to be your muse. But… I also really enjoy your style and suspect I’d be happy to read about whatever you take on next. So… I’m a fat lotta no help at all.

    • I’ll take flattery over help 🙂 Thanks, Kelly. I think it’s time for a heart to heart with Piper. I’m leaning toward sticking to my 365 day promise and taking on something broader, which would still include the piperisms but give me a bit more room to meander. Thanks for liking my style. I didn’t know I had any at all.

    • Ah, thanks. I’m pretty sure I’d break some mommy code if I wrote about the Piper teenage years. I’m starting to wonder about at what age THEY don’t want us blogging about them? I always have Sissy take a look before I post something about her. She loves to write the blog but she certainly doesn’t want to star in it.
