My Mom and My Blog

My mom found my blog.  Don't worry, it's not as bad as it sounds.  In fact, I'm glad.  But it's quite a funny story.  The day after I came out to her, my mom called me.  She said the weirdest thing happened to her.  She said she was spending a lot of time surfing the web, gathering information about being homosexual and attending BYU.  She said she came across a blog in her searches and began to read about this blogger and his experience coming out to his mother.  As she read, she kept thinking - Wow, this conversation sounds so familiar. I guess all mothers ask the same questions, because this is exactly what our conversation was like.  My dear mother, kept reading, not realizing she had stumbled across my very own blog; I hadn't told her about it in our conversations.  It wasn't until she was just about done reading that post that it finally dawned on her that it was, indeed, my blog!  She had to call me immediately and tell me.  So now, my mom reads my blog (Hi Mom!).  Don't worry, I have no plans to cease writing.  I will still be here for your (and my mother's) reading enjoyment.


  1. Awesome that your mom loves you enough to Google "gay+BYU". My mom is now ignoring the word "gay" altogether... Congrats!

  2. I love your disclaimers on your post about coming out that we may have been Facebook stalked by your mom. Now, it appears we may have been Googled :) Love ya, gemelo mio. Glad to hear you're moving in some new directions. And now, you're even closer to visiting Ogden! Let me know if you need a place to watch Glee ;)

  3. The moho world needs more mothers like this. If you are reading this MOM pat yourself on the back for having the courage to put your son first. Not to thrash my mom but lets just say that she has not reacted as you have! Thumbs Up!
