To have joy one must share it. Happiness was born a twin.This site focuses on twins of all ages, friends and relatives of twins, and parents of twins.--Lord Byron
It is part blog and part forum, albeit a limited forum platform.
If you have a blogger account, you may post in the comment section, from where I will eventually invite posters to be active members of this blog, a space to post text/images and start topic threads.
I envision a site where members of this blog will actively post their own twin stories and photos.
I am not a twin myself, although I have always been drawn to and fascinated by twins.
Indeed, I refer to myself as a "twin magnet," usually meeting only one-half of the twin duo. For example, my former graduate advisor at Goddard College is a twin, and I have had numerous students who were twins.
And now, for the first time in my life, I have twin relatives: Owen and Henry, who will be one year old in April 2012.
I often wonder if I did have a twin in utero, for I have always felt a missing something (someone?) in my life.
The background and banner for this blog have been created from my own baby picture. My "alter ego," through the miracle of Adobe, is just my own mirror image, and, perhaps, a lot of wishful thinking.
I am writing a novel about separated twin sisters who, at 50, discover each other for the first time. Because I have never been a twin, I have had to conduct a lot of research.
If you are interested in becoming a member of this blog, please email me a sample of your writing (pasted in the body of your email) and an attached jpeg image of yourself and (if applicable) of your twin.
You do not have to be a twin to be a member--just a good writer who is deeply interested in the phenomenon of twinning.
