Q: Is est. 1975 a mom blog?

A: No. Yes. Maybe a little. I’ll put it this way – the poignant triumphs and hilarious misadventures of parenthood are in no way the sole focus of this blog. Still, I’m a mom. I’m not going to lie and say these things are never going to come up.

Q: Is est. 1975 a lady blog?

A: If by “lady” you mean something along the lines of “a graceful and sophisticated woman with elegance and class,” then no. Probably not. If you mean “anyone with a physical, emotional, or spiritual vagina,” then absolutely. Absolutely.

Q: Who are “the ladies of Generation X”?

A: Wikipedia defines Generation X as “the generation born after the Western Post-World War II baby boom. Demographers, historians, and commentators use beginning birth dates from the early 1960s to the early 1980s.”

So yeah. The ladies of that.

Q: What qualifies you as a blog writer?

A: I’m pretty sure it’s a combination of the following:

  • The degrees I don’t have in English, Journalism, and/or Rhetoric
  • The poems, articles, and short stories I’ve never published
  • The manuscripts I’ve never managed to push past Chapter One

Feel free to take a peep at my intro post if you want a more in-depth tour of my writing “experience.”

Q: Stance on trolls?

A: Zero tolerance. All discussions are wide open now, but if I start seeing a bunch of nonsense, I’m going to start moderating the SHIT out of the comments. It ain’t even close to a democracy up in here.

Q: How do I contact you?

A: Click “Contact” on the above menu and fill out the contact form. I’ll get your message and try my best to respond. No promises, though! Remember there’s a zero tolerance troll policy here at est. 1975. If you sound like a humongous ass, I will ignore you so hard.

Q: What is your advertising/endorsement policy?

A: Click “Disclosure” on the above menu, and treat yourself to some boring semi-legalese. There will be revisions made to the policy over time, so check in often. Especially if you like being bored. Because it’s boring.
