i've been reading a few posts lately where bloggers are talking about their husbands, or their significant others, and how they don't read their blogs. and for some reason, that completely fucking blows my mind. your husband knows you blog, but doesn't read it?? WHY THE HELL NOT? if you knew that your signifcant other blogged, wouldn't you want to read it? wouldn't you be curious as to what they were writing and saying? i sure as hell would.
boyfriend and i have a great relationship with amazing communication, but still- there is something very cathartic about writing. and the way things are written can sometimes come across better (or worse) than actually trying to say them out loud. i think that i write about things that i don't necessarily talk about. or things that are in my mind, but don't always find a way out. for me, blogging is an extension of who i am, what i'm thinking, what i'm feeling, or where my crazy brain is at the moment. i think i would be hurt if boyfriend didn't want to read it. these posts are very personal and 100% me. so why wouldn't he want to read all that jennster goodness?
my entire family and almost all of my friends know that i have a blog. my grandpa reads it daily, and the rest of my family reads it when they're bored and have nothing better to do. this isn't anything new to them. it's just another outlet for me to blab all my personal shit online for perfect strangers and not so perfect strangers to read. i honestly don't think that much of what i do, or say, surprises them anymore. i'm pretty much the same way online as i am offline. this is me. take it or leave it. (you know you wanna take it- rahr)
so back to my somewhat straying point- how do you feel when your s.o. doesn't read your blog? what are their reasons for not reading your blog? does your family read your blog? do you feel inhibited knowing who reads your blog, versus knowing who doesn't? am i asking too many questions? i think so. lol
