Just Curious: International readers?



I love that blogging allows us all to connect across this great, big beautiful world! I know the Bubble has a few international readers out there, and I'm just curious: If you are not reading this blog from America, where in the world are you (literally, ha ha)? And, how did you find the Bubble?

Anything else you'd like to tell us about yourself, please do! I'm so glad you are here!

  1. Why, thanks for asking. I'm sitting here inAuckland, New Zealand at the moment. But I must confess, I'm a regular lurker to your blog from Coronado, California. I'm here for my precious niece's baptism. I'm the godmother. And for any of you concerned about liturgical abuses, or the de-sacred-isation (I made that word up) of your mass in the USA, just be glad you don't live in New Zealand. Unbelievable.

  3. I am just north of you in the province of Alberta as in Canada eh ;-)I do believe I found your link from another Catholic website but for the life of me cannot remember. I am an almost 50 year old "born again catholic" with an empty nest who wishes she could start all over again and get it somewhat right this time.

  5. Hi! I am from Mexico City. I was born and raised here in a bi-cultural family. Mexican and German.

    I found your blog through the Catholic IF blogs mainly Sew and TCIE.

    I have been facing IF for almost 4 years and could not find support nor info on treatments in line with the Church in my country (other than doctors who did not specialize in IF).

    While looking for information on the Catholic position on treatments online I found first a blog in the UK and then Napro and a few weeks later the US Catholic IF yahoo support group and the blogs. They were my lifeline and helped me find Napro and later helped me make the decision to become a practitioner. I am about to graduate.

  8. Kristen, well that's depressing! I wonder how strong the faith is there in NZ?

    Hi Stuart! I even imagined you saying that with a British accent! Glad you are here!

    theresa EH, I know God must be pleased with you! You are wonderful, a strong witness to others, and I have so enjoyed your comments.

  9. I am in Alaska, which really is a part of the USA. But it feels international when told by companies they can't ship to you or charge you an ARM and a leg!

    Hi, Chantal! I'm so glad you are here! I love Canadian Bubble dwellers! That goes for you, too, Barbara!

    Monica, yes, and you will always have a special status here in the Bubble, ha ha!

    Liz, great to see you here! How's Hungary these days?? My daughter is studying abroad now, in Italy.

    Sarah, that is so great! I wish you and Liz could meet my daughter. You guys would hit it off, no doubt!

  19. This was neat to read. Leila, you are internationally spreading the faith...how cool!

  20. Kristen, I felt the same way when I took a vacation to NZ two years ago. I attended a 15 minute mass where the priest seemed annoyed and bored that he was there for the 10 people in attendance. Definitely Unbelievable!

  21. Greetings from Ireland. Found you last week, don't remember how....loved your reversion story and your eloquent dress-down of that arrogant CINO professor.

    You and I are kindred spirits and I intend to check back regularly.

  22. Hi Leila,

    I'm just about to reply to your email but thought I'd comment here too!

    I'm from Sydney, Australia and I found your blog through the IVF posts on Sew Infertile's blog. Now I read tons of the Catholic adoption/IF blogs and I love them even though I am a single girl still struggling with reconciling what I learn about Catholicism vs Protestantism.

    I love your willingness to speak the truth and I find you make things simple when I can get stuck in hypotheticals and complicated scenarios.

  23. thisjourneyofmylife, welcome! My uncle used to live and work in Belgium, and I had a friend who visited recently, and he could not get over this particular treat he ate from a street vendor and said it was seriously the best tasting thing he had ever had in his 44 years of life. I am dying to eat whatever it was!

    GIMH, thank you!!

    LHorton, that is ridiculous. What's even the point???

    wingtips, I think I love you!

    Alex, I love it! Thank you, and I will get back to you very soon! ;)

  27. Hi Leila
    I am from Srilanka!!!! I love your blog and I quite don't remember how I stumbled upon it. Thank you for the wonderful posts. We have been blessed with six children, one in heaven and one on the way. Thank you so much for the post - Why I never should have had eight children. It was very uplifting and put many things in to its correct perspective! X
