The Husband Formerly Known as Matthew


So, I'm sitting on the couch minding my own business when my husband randomly announces that he thinks it would be cool if he had a nickname on my blog. The first thing out of my mouth...I really don't talk about you very much in my blog...seriously...I've got other stuff on my mind.

But...a happy marriage requires compromises, so, from now on when I do mention Matt, which I remind you is on very limited occasions, he will now be called "He Who Doesn't Read My Blog".

Because really, he doesn't. I'm not sure why. When I ask he says that its because he thinks that I should have my own place to say what I want without having to worry about what he read. I know some of the readers of my blog. In fact, I know his sister reads it (Hi Katie!) and he knows that too. So, why he thinks I'm trashing him is beyond me. But I do admit, is does amuse me that he thinks his life is more blog worthy than my own..come on, is anything more exciting than my life!!

So, I'm asking you, my favorite blog readers...is it his husbandly duty to read my blog??

For the first couple years of my blog, I insisted Kevin read it. Blogging was fairly new to the world, and I was pretty proud of myself! But as blogging got more common, and I slacked off on my writing, he slacked off on his reading. Now, if I write something fairly deep and meaningful, I make him proofread it, but otherwise, I'm over it. He'll read it if he reads it. =)

Oh -- I almost forgot -- nice picture! Was that Matt's Halloween costume, or was he just in a post-house-renovation stupor?

My boyfriend had a blog before me, so I can't really say - we both read each others.

But I actually think it is sweet that he wants you to have a place of your own.

HA! Halloween costume...I don't think so! That is a home renovation look!

I'm not overly concerned that he doesn't want to read it...more amused that he thinks that I'm saying something about him that he doesn't want to know about!!

My husband thought for the first week or so of my blog that all I would talk about is him. Granted, I do talk about him a lot...but it's not all hubby, all the time.

I think it's sweet that your husband wants you to have your own space...but if you want him to read it, it's in the wife handbook that you can make him ;-)

Do you want him to read it? :) My bf knows about my blog but doesn't bother to read it. *sigh*

niche blog. thanks for your coming at my blog about coffee. are you or your husband like a drank coffee ?

Katie said...

Thanks for the "shout-out" Sara. =)I feel for you on this one. On one hand it's nice that he wants you to have your own private space, but on the other hand I have to sympathize. I can hardly get my husband to read emails that I send to him! (Not forwards, mind you, E-mails!). He says if its important enough I'll tell him again. Men!

I'm just wondering how one reads a "bog" anyway????

he will now be called "He Who Doesn't Read My Bog".

I think you should give him a different manly man name each time you write about him - Steve or Bruce or something like that. Keep us guessing. Of course, unfamiliar people might start thinking you were into polygamy, but that could be entertaining all on its own.
