My Wife is Better Than Me

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.)

If you haven’t already, and I seriously doubt you haven’t… her blog is HERE.

Jonathan Cliff is married to his wife Starr and they together live out their days with two sons and a daughter. Jonathan serves as one of the Pastors at Grace Community Church in Clarksville, Tennessee; where he works with leaders throughout the city to help develop Christian community that leads to deep and meaningful spiritual friendships. His journey has been an adventurous one, having served in the local church for 15 years in family ministry developing leaders, building environments for kids and students to belong, and encouraging parents to take big spiritual steps with their families.

    Starr totally has the popularity gene. I mean, after all, she was Top 5 for Sand Springs Sandite Queen her senior year! Ah ha ha! I’ve always wanted to out her on that!! :-)

    I found your blog first. Then I found hers. And now I read and comment on hers more. Sorry. She’s just sooooo interesting! I wish I knew her IRL!

    Dude, I found you’re blog through her’s. Just kidding. Yeah I set up Sara’s blog as well. Actually I had a family blog that I set up several years ago. In all those years she has only written from it two times. Then last Christmas she tells me that she wants her own blog. I tell her, “what do you mean, we already have a blog… kennyandsara.com.” She replies, “no, that’s your blog… I want my own.” So, she now has her own. We don’t usually compete on the posting though… I just post my stuff even if she’s beaten me to it as I know mine will be form my own perspective anyway.
