I’m thinking of starting a new web community. It will be exclusively for those husbands who introduced their wives to the blogosphere, helped them form a site, walked them through the kinks of having a blog, and then watched in amazement as that little “Mom Blog” soared past theirs in blog stats. I’ve even had people come up to me and tell me how much they love her blog, not knowing that I’ve had one for 3 years! Ouch!
Rewind to January 2007: My wife had grown tired of my merciless teasing about her juvenile MySpace habit. I’ve always thought she was a wonderful writer and thinker, and told her she should have a blog. It could be hers alone, and she could keep family, friends, and others involved in her life. She reluctantly agreed back then, but now she’s seriously battling Internet blog addiction. She hurries to post things from our lives, trying to beat me to the ‘PUBLISH’ button. I’ll do or say something, and her response is “That is totally going on my blog! Can I?”
So this new community will be devoted to those poor husbands toiling with blog stats in the double-digits, with wives enjoying triple-digit visits each day (and sometimes each hour.)
