I had a revelation last night as hubby and I were recounting our daily activities to one another. I was blabbing on about my productive day at work when he interrupted, “Oh yeah – very productive – two blog posts in one day. Which reminds me….I hate you a little!” (Don’t worry, he said it with a smile and wink, he doesn’t really hate me!)
I gave him my most innocent, whatever could you be talking about dear smile and said, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” To which he responded, “Percy Jackson – Percy Jackson! I told you not to blog about that!” Oh - yeah, my post yesterday - whoops!
He didn’t seem too upset about it….so I just continued on as though nothing had happened.
But I have to wonder. Am I the only blogger who receives the disgruntled caveat “YOU BETTER NOT BLOG ABOUT THIS!” from her spouse on a regular basis?
It never fails – every time Steven makes a comment that accidentally makes it sound like he thinks I’m fat I hear it. Or those incredibly hysterical mishaps during private moments between a man and wife (who have two boxers in the bedroom – that’s all I’m saying) – oh yeah, I definitely hear “YOU BETTER NOT BLOG ABOUT THIS!”
I swear – I hear these words on a weekly basis, if not more often. Is it sad that my poor hubby is afraid that I might share his/our most embarrassing moments with the entire blogging community? (In my defense – I never share the really personal stuff. I do have a tiny filter. And I also tell on myself WAY more than I tell on him!)
But I believe in real life blogging. While I enjoy giveaways and product review (obviously – because I host them on my blog) I truly enjoy reading about the everyday happenings of my favorite bloggers lives more than anything. So I also want to share openly and candidly.
So again, I’m the only one who receives these warnings? Admittedly, they are often in jest as I hope Steven knows I would *never* share anything too personal.
I always tell him, if you were a blogger, you would understand!
