Today I have the honor of being featured on one of my favorite blogs. This is the very first blog I “followed” on WordPress and it’s always a must-read for me. Endearing, funny, real, human. If those are qualities you appreciate, you’ll enjoy Must Be This Tall To Ride as much as I do. My post, “I Got Your Back”, delves into the trials of a 12 year old girl (me, circa 1985) who goes through some physical challenges that include a large turtle shell, a spinning bed, and a quietly courageous man. Read my post (of course!) but then poke around a little and explore and see why people connect with Matt, the man behind the keyboard, of Must Be This Tall To Ride….

First follow EVER?!
That’s very exciting. Thank you so much for contributing, Gretchen.
Thank you Gretchen for sharing this inspiring story and for being as couraged as you are.
Thank you for your kind words. But I have to say, it didn’t take courage to write this, I have not had to deal with this kind of abuse. The fact that this is a thing that actually happens so often just really pissed me off and made me want to write this. What I am struck by is all the women who’ve responded who have been attacked and threatened in this way. It is so sad, yet they are an inspiration. I plan on writing a follow-up post just about all of the women who responded to this who are going through this or have gone through this. I really appreciate you taking the time to read and comment!
It’s good to talk about these things. I am the same way and always felt that silence in any case of abuse is devastating rather than “gold”.
When I thanked you for your courage I was referring to how couraged you went through your own experiences which you described in your guest-post on “Must Be This Tall To Ride”. 🙂
Ohhhh… I obviously got confused when catching up on comments! Thank you for that!
