Love Me, Love my Blog

Little did I know that once you become a blogger, your blog becomes you.  Some sort of ultra-futuristic cosmic mind meld thing happens and before you know it, you and your blog become one in the same.  People ask about you, you talk about your blog – awesome personality trait.

Then a funny thing happens: the people closest to you stop reading your blog.  Like oh, say, your husband.

I guess I’ve always known that Big Daddy P was only interested in Mommyfriend as it pertained to his illustrations.  Everything else relating to epidurals and mastitis was well, a lot less interesting.  I know he’s a busy dude, I mean there are sprinklers to fix and mountains to climb but that doesn’t give him permission to stop reading my blog outright.  Does it?  I’m gonna go with no.

And so I say this to Big Daddy P:  LOVE ME, LOVE MY BLOG.

I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her…blog.


  1. Glad I’m not alone. My husband very rarely reads my blog. Sometimes I’ll leave it open on my laptop in the hopes that he will check it out – ha! But then again I don’t think some of my close friends read my blog either, and that doesn’t bother me so much. I like the blogging community that I’ve found!

  2. I have heard other people say that their husbands don’t read their blogs, but I am like you. If you are my husband or my mom or my best friend, you better read my blog!

  3. I don’t think it bothers me that hubs doesn’t read my blog. It just bothers me that he sometimes doesn’t understand how important it is to me.

  4. I just laughed out loud a little because I could probably count on one hand how many times my husband has read my blog. His MOTHER on the other hand….reads it. For ammo against me. And then she brings it up at family gatherings and misquotes me or using something I said in sarcasm as a realistic statement. Gotta love that.

    Ahh…the good and the bad of blogging.

    • Chrissy, I have WP and for some reason your blog won’t accept my WP login?! Anyway, regarding your trip to D.C., you looked smashing darling and your trip looked like so much fun. I’d love to take the kids when they get a bit older!

      • Haa, it’s ok…wordpress and I have a love/hate thing going on. I actually run off wordpress….which makes it all even funnier. What can ya do right?
        Thanks for the compliment!! D.C was a great trip! I’m excited to go back with kids too!!

        Love your blog!

  5. I feel your blogging pain, I don’t think my husband reads mine too often.

  6. This made me laugh, if my husband does not bring up a new blog post and tell me about what he liked in it, I basically drag it out of him. Which is really more begging for a compliment than getting feedback.

    When I have to bring it up, I’m secretly annoyed and want to flick him in the head. He should be dazzled by all my posts.

    • OMG Amanda, I so know what you’re saying. We want them to WANT to read it! I must admit to resorting to a flick in the head at least once – it’s not something I’m proud of.

  7. Fun picture. Great post. Listen up, Big Daddy P! 😉

  8. You should trickle in a few posts about biking and bike related topics and you might regain your husband’s viewership. Maybe tag your normal posts w/ Lance, Tour, France, Cyclist for the same effect.

    I get this….my husband doesn’t read my blog either – if I’ve got something to say, he would rather me tell him, or read it to him – SO, I do! I understand, he’s not a reader, he’s extremely busy and has so many things going on in his life – he would rather just talk. Often times, I read him what I write or show him my vlog intentionally.

    I believe he loves me, loves what I’m doing online, he just doesn’t roll that way and I respect that and don’t take it personally. =)

    Keeping it Personal,
    Teri Johnson
