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.
My husband just got back from the Orange conference in Atlanta full of stories to tell and ideas that he wants to follow through on. One of those ideas is that he wants to start a blog. He even joined Twitter last week.
Prepare yourselves for the end times, people, because that is a sure sign that they are upon us.
One of the speakers wrote a book about social media and my husband read it on the plane ride home (WHO IS THIS MAN, AND WHAT DID HE DO WITH MY HUSBAND?), and he said that there are three types of people who use the Internet:
Tourists: Dabble a bit, like to be on Facebook/YouTube, aren’t bloggers. This is where he is right now.
Citizens: Have blogs, read blogs, interact with other bloggers, are part of the community. This is where I fit, I think, and where he’d like to be.
Natives: These are the bloggers who’ve been there since the beginning, before everyone and their Grandma had a blog. He thinks this is where I fit, because I’ve been at it for seven years, but I think people like Sundry and Schmutzie and Sweetney and Dooce, etc. are the true natives. They’ve been around since before there were blog hosting companies and are the pioneers.
It was interesting to hear, and I’ll probably read the book in the next little bit. I just find it so weird to hear my husband so excited about it. When I first started blogging, he didn’t get it at all, but has warmed up to it as the years have gone by. He was telling me this morning about different post ideas he had and I’m pretty sure that I was looking at him like he’d grown a second head. His first job today is to come up with a URL and he’s taking that job seriously. Crazy.
How about you? Are you a tourist, a citizen, or a native? Does your spouse blog?
