with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
You’re sitting there reading these words I have typed, so I think that it’s safe to assume that you joy reading blogs, whether they be the ones here at Work It! Mom or elsewhere. I am sitting here typing this post and have been doing so in this space for two years now (and at my personal site for over five years), so it’s pretty obvious that I like blogging.
My husband is not a reader of blogs, unless he’s searching for some hunting/fishing tips and stumbles across them via Google. He only reads my site if I make him (which I do). He didn’t really “get” why I liked it at first and while it’s still a bit of a mystery to him, he supports me in doing what I love.
Yesterday was a bit of a dark day for me, blogging-wise. I had a one-two punch that was in relation to friends that I have met through the blog world. These are not just people that I read and email with - they are people that I have spent time with in real life, that I have laughed with and shared with. These are people that I trust. Well, trusted. Past tense. I was feeling pretty wounded (still am) and when I sat down to share it all with my husband at the end of the day we both had to laugh because I predicted exactly what he would say.
“So why don’t you just quit?”
The thing is, far more positives (and great friends) have come out of this experience and I would feel like something was missing were I to give it up. Hiccups happen in life, whether online or offline, and I know that when I ride it through it will all be fine. It always is.
S, how about you? What does your spouse think about blogging?
