The End

Over the past few months I have found myself enjoying more and more the process of blogging. I'd written personal essays before, but never on this scale -- never so often and with such, er, honesty. (If by honesty I mean slashing my wrists and hemorrhaging all over the computer screen).

By far the best part has been meeting people in the comments section and through emails. The only problem with blogging is that it is all-consuming. For a while there I was posting a few times a day. For the past week or so I've put the breaks on a bit (in part due to a book that needed copy-editing, in part due to a catastrophic depression). Then, this week I was offered a column on Salon. Okay, to be perfectly accurate, I browbeat the fine editors of that inspired on line magazine into letting me have a column. I thought for a while I could do both the column and the blog, but I'm afraid that if I tried that, I wouldn't have enough time and energy left over to write my novels or drive carpool.

So I'm going to end the blog. I'll still be bitching about the same kind of thing over at Salon. Please log on to read me over there. You need not be a member -- you can watch the little commercial instead. Please continue to email me with your comments, etc. And I'll be reading your blogs.

Oh no! I only just recently discovered your blog, so I'm doubly sorry to see it go since my acquaintance has been so brief. I especially enjoyed your recent post on your fascination with the freaksome; I have a book called Very Special People that has been a favorite for a long time. I'll look forward to reading you on Salon, and I'm sure others will follow. Bonne chance!

Well... if this means you have to write more great essays and wonderful books, I guess it's okay.
See you next month at Mills-

I completely understand--the 'real' work takes precedence. I wish you could be persuaded that a little half-hearted personal blogging would be greatly appreciated by your readers (even brief, erratic and irrational spouting-offs), but I can see you're an all-or-nothing person on this! You've really developed an excellent first-person voice here, though, and I look forward to reading your essays in Salon and elsewhere.

I'm new to the land of blogs, but because of Bad Mother, the first I started reading, I found Manolos Shoeblog, Mimi Smartypants, Fuzzy, Go Fug, and APS. Who among us bad mothers doesn't love/need a good tear inducing side clenching stroll through the bwaahaha bizarre?
So, thank you for your own great posts and for making me aware of the afore mentioned. Half the fun was reading peoples reactions so I can't promise I'll check out Salon regularly but will try. Hope you keep your book log going. Will miss the blog.

Ayelet - I have to echo so many othes who protest, 'but I only just got here!'

I had just read your husband's books this year, and when I read the NYT article (insert defamatory phrase here) I hurried over, read and read and read, hurried to the bookstore, and devoured your books in a week. Well, no Daughter's Keeper, so I have something to look forward to. Plus Salon, I am excited about that.

I will miss you; your blog is already an integral part of my blogroll each day. And I agree with another commenter - if you feel like posting bits and drabs here, we will happily slurp them up!

Good luck, keep writing, and I will keep reading.

I'm horrified that someone could leave such a vicious and unwarranted comment. If you had any guts, you'd post under your own name. Obviously, from the 66 other comments, your opinion is not shared by others. You are clearly the product of a bad mother yourself, who never taught you that if you don't have something nice to say...

Anonymous Anonymous said...

And "le chat fou" is your real name? Unlike Ayelet Waldman, I don't feel the need to expose my children to public ridicule.

In response to the "if you don't have anything nice to say" comment, I have TWO things to say:

1. Kavalier and Clay was an EXCELLENT book and TOTALLY deserved the Pulitzer Prize. Now, why such a talented author would marry a neurotic, self-obsessed hack is quite a puzzle.

2. Evil occurs in the world because good people sit by and do nothing when children are abused. Mental abuse of the type that Waldman inflicts on her own children is just as bad as physical abuse.

March 23, 2005 at 2:41 PM  
Blogger le chat fou said...

I don't see the mental abuse that you refer too. Have you ever stayed home with children full time? If not, you have no right to judge the way one mother chooses to vent about the joys and difficulties of taking care of 4 children. I can't imagine posting such meanspirited comments about someone I don't know. Nothing Ayelet has written in her blog warrants that.

March 24, 2005 at 5:38 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Did you read her article on Salon? I think hinting to your 7-year-old that you might possibly really kill yourself is an example of mental abuse. I don't need to be there in the home to see that is the case. A mature adult would discuss the situation with her husband, with her therapist, with her best friend--but not with her child, and probably not with the wider world of the internet that is accessible to a child.

As far as staying home with four children is concerned, thousands and thousands of women have done that throughout the centuries without having mental breakdowns about it that they then inflict on their families. If you can't handle it, hire a nanny before you turn into Andrea Yates.

March 24, 2005 at 6:38 AM  
Blogger le chat fou said...

No, I couldn't find the article on Salon you are refering to, but I think Ayelet's refreshing honesty about the trials of raising kids in her blog helped a lot of women suffering from depression and bipolar disease. If you haven't experienced depression, good for you. It must be hard to imagine the darkness that would drive someone to talk openly about suicide. Comments like, "go stick your head in the oven, you total loser" just discredit you as a wacko and do nothing to enlighten the debate.

Didn't like you on Oprah! My mom has always told me most people who talk about their sex life aren't really getting any. I have never talked about my sex life with "mommy and me groups" which by the way I don't attend. I have GOOD friends and we get together, but we don't brag or complain about sex. My husband and I met when we were five years old and we marvel at what kindred spirits we have always been. We don't always see eye to eye, but work through by compromising when we don't. Open communication between a wife and husband is the best way to improve love making.

You aren't in love with your children? What about the biological bond/love a mother is SUPPOSED to have for their children...stronger than a spousal love. I have identical twin girls and that is even stronger than a mother/child relationship. I witness it every day.

My marriage is so important to me. I pray and work every day to be as good a wife as I can be. But let me tell you if the whole world sees your know-it-all attitude on t.v. the way I did, some of us can only imagine what you are like as a wife at home.

I was trying to email you personally, but to no avail. So to let you know I respectfully disagree with you and think you were a little narrow-minded for Oprah's show. Oprah, by the way is not married and has no children. It's hard to take advice from someone who isn't experiencing married family life.

I love reading mysteries, but you have now given me a reason to make sure I don't buy any of your books.

Saw you on Oprah today. My mouth was agape the whole show. I totaly disagree with what you said. After reading the whole essay and some other things on this web site, I think you might have Postpartum Depression. It can cause a disconnect with your children and feelings uncertainty about your ability to mother. It can last years if it is untreated and it worsens the more children you have. You spoke about Sylvia Plath and said that you related to her as a mother. I have long suspected that she too suffered from postpartum depression. Please seek help for this. You will realize that you can love your children as much as your husband just in a different way.

I agree that you should love your spouse more than your children but, I could not imagine my life without my husband or my children.
I mean, let's just say my kids get hit by a car "God forbid" and, they day. I would be totally devestated and probably be in a total state of depression.
To be perfectly honest with you, you will never know what you will do, until that sort of situation happens. I imagining it is totally different.
I go to a playgroup message board and someone posted a link to the excerpt so I read it.
I was impressed with your abitity to express yourself honestly.
How many books have you had published.
I have written a few but, have yet to see them published.
Weird, our blog pages look the same, great minds think alike. :)

I saw you for the first time on Oprah yesterday and was SO impressed with you that I had to find out more about you.

I watched Oprah with my 17-year-old daughter and we BOTH agree with everything you said. We were aghast at people who take everything in life so seriously and can't see humor in anything. Even my daughter realized that some of the things you said were meant to be taken tongue-in-cheek. At one point she said, 'Well Duh! Kids leave home - then what do you have!'

After finding this dead blog and reading the comments on your ending post, I thought you might need a pick me up.

I love your style and will start reading your books immediatly!

You Rock!

I just finished watching you on Oprah. I thought it was interesting that some people there couldn't get past the semantics of what you had said. I have struggled with the idea of the love I feel for my husband and my children. I do love my children! More than I can say! BUT, I am IN LOVE with my husband. A wise woman once told me that children need to see their parents in love. My children express horror when they find my husband and myself kissing passionately, but I think they need to know that the expression of love is not just for young people. Thank you for bringing this to the table. I hope a lot of people are thinking about this now!

I applaud Ayelet, I am a mother who is very in love with her husband and I am tired of the moms who complain about sex and thier mates and there mates having needs! Well, I have needs and I have very good sexual needs and my husband meets them as often as I have them, and he loves it, our children (blended family) know that they are loved and secure and safe, but they also know that we have a deep and passionate love for one another and they will grow up learning that deep love between parents is not only normal it is necessary to make life work. I was stunned by the mom's on Oprah who refused to look at thier positions on only being able to meet the kids needs, I am so grateful I am not married to one of them. They treat thier husbands like objects rather than human beings. I would resent that if my husband decided to be only a parent and not my best friend and lover. I would feel hurt and betrayed.

I only recently heard about you after watching you on the "Oprah" show discussing your "controversial" article from the New York Times. I completely understand what you were trying to say, although I can't say I can relate, UNFORTUNATELY!!! I just wanted you to know that I support you since you seem to have so many angry mothers against you. Please continue doing what you do so well!! I wish you all the best!!

Hey Ayelet, Just wanted to say THANK YOU for your Times article & your appearance on Oprah. My husband and I watched together & we both agreed with you, thank you for saying what needed to be said. P.S. You looked awesome! Reminded me a little of Madonna.

Ayelet, I saw you on Oprah. For what it's worth, I agree with your article in the Times. Thank you for having the courage to address an important and difficult issue. Most moms are WAY too focused on their kids, to the exclusion of their own enjoyment of life. It's not just about sex; it's about pursuing personal interests that don't involve kids, AND about continuing to enjoy a husband's time and attention. I am one of those moms who's still getting some (and who loves her husband to distraction). Don't let the moms who have no life get you down. Those of us who still enjoy adult activities may be in the minority, but we're out there!

I hadn't even thought to leave a comment, and that it would go to you the way blog comments always do... but for some reason my blogroll showed a "new post" to your blog today. I guessed it was comments, and read over them.

As an older mom, pregnant right now with twin babies, I was married to my hubby for 12 years before we even started our family. So I can't imagine not making him my "sun" and my kids, if not "moons," at least smaller stars. :) I am sad that so many people completely miss your point and call you an abusive, or "bad" mother. There was noplace there that said you do not love your children, as far as I am concerned. Most writers write about their lives, their families; it seems to only be when women do it that they are called bad for it. As far as people accusing you of having postpartum depression and being abusive-- folks-- if you read her blog, she admits to suffering frombipolar
disorder
and that she is under treatment for it. Do a little reading yourself and learn that, as a quote I myself have on my fridge says: "the most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one."-- Jill Churchill.

Ayelet's is just one of millions of ways of negotiating a complex job. It may not be your way, but get past the labels and see if you can learn something.

I wrote a
blog entry
about my response to your appearance and essay, and at the risk of getting some of the trolls you have commenting nastily & anoynmously on your blog, I'll put a link to see if you'd like to see one "thinking" woman's response to your essay.

Also, I'm terribly jealous of you for getting Salon to hire you! I wish I had the clout to badger them into a job! :)

Dear Moms,

Many of you have seen Ayelet Waldman's appearance on "Oprah" where she voiced her controversial views on putting her husband before her children. We at ABC are looking for more moms who follow that philosophy. We're always looking for unique families to feature on our shows and are fascinated by this approach to marriage, parenting, and romance! How has this approach benefited you, your spouse, and your children? Do you feel that other families could learn by your example? We want to hear from you! There is generous financial compensation involved!

I believe unequivocally that the primary reason my husband and I divorced was because he felt we should put the "needs" of our kids before our needs as adults. Of course, this meant that it was usually ME who was supposed to do it (that being the definition of a good mother and all), but even he would choose doing something with the kids over doing something with me. The best piece of (unfollowed) advice I got when I was getting married for that first time was to put the marriage first, because without it, everything else falls apart. That woman was right. Now that I'm getting ready to marry for the second time, I'm marrying someone who agrees that we have to have a life first. We love our kids, but they will grow up and go start families of their own and we need to not make them the center of the universe. So rock on Aylet--keep saying what needs to be said.

Thank you for being so honest!

Ayelet, as a mother of four myself and a writer, I love and really resonate with both your blog and Salon columns. When I was still an MFA student at San Jose State, I took a class called the "Phelan Seminar," which included having time with writers throughout the semester. We had a wonderful talk with your husband at Villa Montalvo. Our professor (who warned us that we were to discuss only "literary things with Michael") was late to the seminar that day, so we had a few minutes in which Michael and the class talked about new babies (I believe your youngest had just been born), and writing in a lively household (several of the students in the class were parents). He seemed like a very nice, "real" person and gave me hope that there are some writers out there who are good folks. You seem like you have such a rich, lively life with your family, and I wish you blessings and abundance with it all.

I'm also someone who aspires to be an aspiring writer (just a couple steps behind actually BEING one).

I'd love to follow you in this new endeavor and learn how to brow-beat editors. Seems like a skill I might be able to use someday.

Corporations that manufacture asbestos products have known about the dangers of asbestos-related diseases for more than six decades. In an effort to increase profit, they kept this information quiet, putting workers and families at risk.

Working with asbestos causes serious diseases. Unfortunately, many corporations thought they would be able to cut corners and make a large profit at the expense of endangering workers. Fortunately, there are laws that help to protect those individuals that have been harmed by exposure to asbestos-related products.

Spread the information and help as many as possible.
Thanks

Thats a great view point. I had not really considered it from that perspective before regarding real work at home jobs. Put it this way, most people who are rich have their own businesses many of which started as a work from home based business. I have an article based webs site discussing such issues as real work at home jobs which should be an eye opener for most people thinking of starting their own home business. Keep up the great information with your blog.

How to build a niche blog empire..

Over the past year or two people have become more and more obsessed with blogging.

Blogs have proven themselves over and over again to be
great methods of generating a huge income from part-time
work.

With Google experimenting with blog technology more
and more, this is surely not a fad.

Creating blogs in niche topics is a very easy and effective way for the beginning home business owners to see their first success.

More specifically, if you write a blog covering niche topics, you'll easily generate traffic to the blogs which then turns into income with the help of Adsense.

Two prime examples of the niche blogging sensation are
Jason Calacanis and Darren Rowse.

Learn what these two guys are doing and see how you can
build a nice nest egg by niche blogging:
