What I wish he’d understand . . .

Bill is an expert on all thing electric (you know, on things like ceiling lighting), but he doesn’t understand the blogging thing.  It just irritates me that he doesn’t listen to what I am saying.  He doesn’t understand paid links, contextual links, google pagerank, alexa rank, etc.  When I told him that I average 200 visitors a day (give or take), he got all upset that 200 people he doesn’t know are reading about our lives.  (If I would have thought quick enough, I should have said that he should be proud that 200 people a day care about our lives).  I questioned putting my kids pictures on here.  I did a ton of thought on it.  However, the purpose of this blog originally was to keep my friends and family in Green Bay in the loop to what is going on in our lives.  At this point, I don’t know if I could even extract all of that information off of here.  It is what makes this blog tick.  He doesn’t get that none of you (unless I ask) are going to show up on our doorstep.  My question goes out to you — how to you explain blogging to people?  How do you explain the hows and the whys?


  1. I would explain it as a release of all my desires to write, without having to write about one specific topic or make a whole heck of a lot of sense.

    My parents see it as an online journal, with different levels of privacy. Like my LJ would be my "locked diary". My WP site is the journal that sits on the bed, and is the one that a parent would read (with permission, obvs)

    My husband sees it as my stress-reliever, and a way for me to have contact with "the outside world" since I don't get out as much, LOL.

  2. I don't. I have a handful of friends and family that read my blog, and other than that… I just don't try to explain anything. If they ask, I'll explain something, but other than that it feels a whole lot like hitting my head on a brick wall.

    Love the theme, by the way!

Calling all my tofu fans!  Firm and extra firm tofu is packed in water to keep it fresh.
