There are millions of womb twin survivors in the world. Most of them are unaware that they are, and those who do know of their twin do not realise that the prenatal loss of their twin has had a profound psychological effect on them.
One favourite way to get any message to the world is to blog it, which is why I made a resolution on January 1st of this year to make a post here every day of 2011. After 5 weeks, the number of visitors to this blog had doubled and look ready to triple within the next two months! Thank you, every one of you. You are very welcome here and I look forward to your comments.
This is not the only womb twin blog, but so far at least, there is just one Twitter account.
There is a blog in the USA which features stories of interest to people in that country. Also blogs in other countries [ see the full list of blogs here]
Here is a quote from the US blog home page:
The Womb Twin world blog has a large group of authors from countries throughout the world, and posts in various languages. If you are a womb twin survivor you can become an author on the world blog - we cant have too many authors for this!
Why have all these blogs? It is a way to spread the world, get the message out. People like blogs because they are active and there is always something new to see , and it feels more "cutting edge" than a web site.
Blogging the message
Comments to this blog (and about this blog made elsewhere) seem to indicate that:
1 There is widespread scepticism about this among the 90% of the population who are NOT womb twin survivors.
2 Womb twin survivors find it affirming to read about themselves here and find something of their story in every blog post
How do you respond to this daily blog? Is this a good way to get the message out? Let me know either here or contact me via my web site, thank you.
Tomorrow we will explore some of the various womb twin web sites. Do you know of one? Please let me know if you find one.
