april 2013 – monthly theme: NIAW

This month, rather than hosting our usual Monthly Theme Post, PAIL is encouraging you to participate in RESOLVE’s Bloggers Unite Challenge as part of National Infertility Awareness Week (April 21-27).

This year, the Bloggers Unite prompt is “Join the Movement…”

The goal of this year’s Blog Challenge is to bring together bloggers to talk about how you are making the difference in ways large and small in the lives of people with infertility. Topics covered in your blog post can include how you broke the silence of infertility in your life, how you advocated for the infertility community, how you advocated for yourself, or how you created a support community to help you through the infertility journey.

While we are not officially working with RESOLVE, we highly encourage you to participate in this very important blog challenge. One of our core messages at PAIL, and the cornerstone of our mission statement is to “keep talking” through this part of the ALI journey. Your story, your journey, and your path to healing matters. Writing on the suggested prompts above from your current place on the journey lends an important perspective and new avenues on how to Join the Movement.

For full details on how to participate in the Bloggers Unite Challenge (including how to submit your posts and formatting) please click here.

Your post must be submitted directly to RESOLVE between April 21-27 to enter the challenge. If you would like to link your post up to us as well, please link up or pingback to this post but remember, you must submit your post to RESOLVE first. We will post links to the full list from RESOLVE as well as your posts for all to read and get inspired!

RESOLVE has their NIAW blog badges (like the one in our sidebar) available for downloading here. Additionally, Keiko at The Infertility Voice has created 12 Facebook Timeline Covers available as free downloads to raise awareness during NIAW. Please click here to choose and upload yours today! We did! 🙂

Be sure to share your posts far and wide! We’re really looking forward to reading the whole list!
