So this is what it's come to...



Does your spouse read your blog? Do you read your significant other's?

No, my wife Julie doesn't really get into computers all that much so she has never spent much time reading my blog or my emails. About the closest she got to semi-frequent computer use was when Curt was living on-campus and she'd log on to AIM to chat with him rather than run up our long distance bill. Needless to say, she doesn't keep a blog.

I havn't been blogging for long (or consistently), but after a few days of not posting Deb starts bugging me to post something for her to read. I guess that's because I don't talk a whole lot - the introvert temperment at work :-)

No, my sig. other doesn't read my blogs. He has shown no interest in my hobby blog and doesn't know I have an opinion blog. He is on the computer all day for his work and hates using it at home.

heh heh heh.

yes, my wife reads my blog - and my MOM. yikes. and my kids - so i've got to keep at least one brain cell conscious of who's dropping by.

if i want to keep it private, it won't be on the blog in the first place, right?

My wife does read mine (along with my parents and my in-laws), but I didn't know that until the first time she said, "You haven't posted anything lately. Nothing to talk about?" So she does read regularly.....

This is fascinating. First of all, I've got more replies to this little thread than my most recent UPI column. What does that mean? :) Secondly, it's interesting how many have blogs that spouses don't read. Jon only reads mine if I say "Go read XYZ." He's on the computer constantly, but blogging just isn't his thing.

I do have family and friends who read mine pretty regularly and some of them just email me (rather than commenting on the blog itself). And I have family who never read it. :)

I read my kids' online journals about twice per month. Fun, fun.

My dh reads mine if I say, "did you see my blog today?" I have several friends here say, "we feel we know you because we already read your blog. We also don't call as much because we already know what's going on with you!" Hmmm...that's a weird feeling! And my mom reads, my grandma, and they actually print it off to circulate at my old church; their reminders of this is in the forefront of my mind when I'm posting. What I say and do reflects more on my parents in that scenario than I'd like.

My wife, my kids, my relatives, my church and my friends frequent my blogsite. I sometimes wish that people who know me wouldn't read what I write ... a bit too much accountability ... next thing I know they will want me to live what I write :)

I know that my wife Lori drops in occasionally to read the blog.

More importantly though, she brags about "thechurchgeek" to her friends and colleagues!

My family reads it too (Mom, Dad, Sister, Aunts) though they don't seem to drop any comments (there all shy...) or talk very much about it. And I hate asking directly.

Don't know if that means they don't like what I have to say or what?!?

No one that knows me in real life reads my blog (well, except Chuck and now Julie). My wife has never read it. I've sent links to my family members. But, they've never commented about it.

I know my father thinks I'm a heretic. My mother's sympathetic to my views. But, not going to make a significant switch. My siblings just aren't interested.

Peace,
Brian
