You simply won't believe it.
Sometimes I truly wonder about my sanity.
I just told Hubby he needs to join the blogging world.
I know! It's official. I've lost it.
The one I've kept to myself. (yes, he knows I blog, but he hasn't seen! He hasn't read! That I know of.....really? If he gave it any thought he could find me easily....)
Apparently, sometimes my mouth runs away with itself. (see previous posting several days ago about offering to co-host a baby shower during uncertain times - I'd find it, but I'm lazy.)
Hubby came to me today and asked, "Do you know anyone who knows how to build a website?" (in retrospect, I probably do.....). Apparently, he was thinking about starting a cooking website.
Me, the ever helpful spouse responded, "Start a blog." He - who obviously has NO idea what a blog is all about - said,
"No. I want something interactive, where I can have ads and answer questions." (I'll patiently wait while you laugh hysterically). Yet, I persisted.
"You can have that with a blog. You can have ads. Blogging is VERY interactive. You can even buy your own domain name and some people can actually make money off blogging." He responded with, "What's a domain name?" I explained it all in detail to him. And bless me, if he didn't wander away seeming interested.
So, what's the problem, you might be asking?
Well, if he starts blogging - as his beautiful and talented wife I will have to follow him (although I have absolutely no interest in cooking....) and as he is my very manly and studly husband he will have to follow me (although - most of the time - he has absolutely no interest in what I have going on in my head [or so it seems]).
I realize this blog is tame. There is nothing to hide here. But it's mine. If I want to bitch about Hubby and Man-Child, I can - and do. At length. If I want to talk about people we know - I do. And it's nothing new to either of them. Whatever I say to y'all (mostly) I say to them.
But it's mine!!
I don't want to share!
But I do want him to find a hobby (I always have - even before the layoff.). I want him to do something that he loves. And I really think (especially if he got started and realized how much fun it is) he might like blogging (although I also have a nagging suspiscion that I might be doing most of the typing....).
So what do y'all think? Should I encourage this -- or leave well enough alone?
