what do your family & friends think about you having a blog??
Busy with school holidays so a quick post's a good post right??
Here's a little insight to my brutally honest marriage . . .
Posie: "At Blogopolis, a mum with 4 boys called Kim from All Consuming blog, declared 'years ago i told my husband i was going to start a blog & he said it was the most conceited thing i had ever done.' Do you think having a blog is conceited?? How you answer might be the basis of a blog post."
Handsome Soldier: "I'm quite happy for you to force your opinions on total strangers, it saves me having to endure all of them."
Explaining to people who don't blog or read blogs, is difficult, thus the huge success of a blog conference, we get each other whether you're a niche food blogger or dedicated to celebrity gossip & style. I only recently discovered my in-laws read my blog, hello family!! My family do not, they're just not on line kind of people - they get my agenda, it stemmed from my design business & for when my husband's away. Anyway, i do understand Mr All Consuming's point, blogs can be me me me as we indulge in our passions.
Me, conceited/ selfish/ insular/ self indulgent?? After dinner the other night, just as i was ready to quit for the evening . . . my husband said he fancied something tasty, chocolatey, warm & delicious. So i leapt up & started on an amazing recipe involving a stove, mixmaster & oven . . . 2+ hours later . . . i presented my sleeping husband with a double decker Women's Weekly family chocolate cake stuffed with cream!!
We're not conceited, i think we're rather generous with our time & energy, even if you have to endure some opinions along the way. If you know Kim, she's a doll, the least conceited person on earth & an inspiration in life (as well as this post!!)
So, tell me, how do you explain to the uninitiated . . . that you blog, what a blog is, why you blog, & what do people think?? Or are you like me, don't bother!! Love Posie
