A Husband's Perspective on Blogging

 Angel came up with a brilliant blog post idea the other day. I laughed hysterically while reading what he wrote, and I hope you do, too. Here is Angel's post, with my additions and Englishifications thrown in. I think you'll be able to tell that it's still mostly him, though.


You begin to notice more time for yourself.

You are asked, "Give me ideas for my next blog entry" and you respond with "Sex" and she says, "No, out of the question."

You know that if she is dressed especially pretty, you will inevitably be taking outfit pictures of her at some point during the day

 Where are my boots???


You have learned, through a long process, that said outfit pictures must include the blogger's feet. Pictures without feet are invariably rejected. Apparently, outfits include shoes.

You know that if your wife says, "No one commented on my post today," the appropriate response is to give her a hug, and probably afterwards go and share her post on your Facebook page.

She talks about friends you've never met with names like Carolynn wrote this and Angi said that and her open web page says something about Sippy Cups.

You don't know what the difference is between blogging friends and Halo, Call of Duty, and Modern Warfare Xbox 360 Live friends, but your wife insists that a difference does exist.

The word follower/s is not associated with a cult.



You know that any and every picture of you that your spouse happens to have on her computer can and probably will be used in a blog post at some point in her blogging career.

You know that if you say something ridiculous, it will most likely end up on a blog for all the world to see. You may even say ridiculous things for that very purpose.


You occasionally receive emails from your wife, saying, "Baby, please answer the list of questions below and send it back to me ASAP. I need to write a post for Friday."

You've ever asked "Why have we been getting so many packages in the mail lately?" and your wife's believeable response is, "I've won a few blogging giveaways, isn't that great?"

For Valentine's, birthday, Christmas, or Chinese New Year, you've purchased a blogging-related gift for your wife.

........................................................................

I love that guy. Anyways, remember, there's a giveaway going on here, so every time you follow and comment, you have another chance to win! (Guidelines for commenting are found in the giveaway post)

  2. This is awesome! I am actually just starting to make my fiance take the outfit pictures of me to post since I'm just getting into posting about my outfits. But he's already mastered the appropriate responses to the "nobody read my blog" comments and such.
    Great post by Angel, I'm sure most blogger husbands can relate!

  8. Hahahah! This is the best post ever. Isaiah would probably say a lot of the same things, although I haven't ventured to ask him to take pictures of any of my outfits yet. That may be coming down the pipe, though.

  12. Ha, he cracks me up! It is true! I totally wanna ask my hubs to take pics some days when I look really cute, but always feel slightly (really) conceded, like "hey, I know I look good, let other see it too!" But it is totally true. You gotta have pictures of yourself on your blog to make it interesting. I will say that they tripod has gotten my hubs off the hook a few times;)

  20. My husband wants to add: when you come home from work and The first thing your wife says isn't welcome home or how was your day but instead "did you read my blog post?"

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is so cute! Sometimes I wish my husband would be more active in my blog, but then I realize that I don't want a lot to do with his comic books or other boy stuff so were cool :)

  29. I was reading this will with my husband next too me. He is the wife of an "obsessed blogger" as well. He literally gives me post ideas or posts altogether when I reach a point of no clue what to write. Or if
    something he finds funny happens in our life he has me write up a blog post about it.

    He literally handed out my business cards for my blog today to his co-workers and also customers at his job. That totally rocked my world and made me especially happy.

    All of these things you listed were definitely true. My husband just bought me a blogging training course that I've had my eyes on for months now.


    He doesn't have more time for himself (unless you count those late nights that I tend to put in for my blog), but he does have more time with the kids. ;)

    My in-laws definitely have noticed all the vast majority of packages that have come in the mail. My mailman also has commented. UPS states they know the way to our house quite well now. :)

    Great post!!
