After 3 1/2 years of creating, nurturing and expanding the horizons of Blog Segullah, our fabulous editor, Maralise Peterson is handing her baby to new
co-editors co-slaves, Leslie Graff and Michelle Lehnardt. Happily, Maralise will remain as Art Editor of the Segullah Journal and will remain an active participant in Blog Segullah(and you can always catch her at TheReluctantNomad).
Placing her own pursuits on hold, Maralise worked tirelessly with our blogmaster and techno genius, Johnna, to create this fabulous place to gather, learn and grow. And you– the Segullah community– also parented this baby into maturity. Blog Segullah would be NOTHING without the thoughtful participation and comments of its readers. I believe Blog Segullah is the best place on the internet for intelligent, polite discussion of gospel and mothering topics. My motto for teaching Sunday School is “I provide an outline– the class provides the insights.” And Segullah is the same. Your comments, your experiences, enrich everyone who reads them.
Leslie and I plan very few changes to this well-run ship, but we do want to see a little more of YOU. If you like, please visit gravatar.com where you can upload a photo tied to your email address. When you comment with that email address your photo should pop right up. Please don’t feel any pressure to show your pretty face, you can also use a flower, a toy or any favorite object(mine features my face and my favorite toy). As always, we will continue to allow anonymous comments, but we believe the photos, the bits of recognition will help us connect with each other(especially if you have a common name like Michelle, Melissa, Jenny, Wendy, Sue etc.).
Thank you, thank you Maralise for your artful, creative and compassionate vision of Blog Segullah. We hope to make you proud.
