a waste of time, but I love it, so….I do it for me.
Some of my f&f think it's cool, most think it's pointless to both read and write blogs. I don't really care though, because it is a great way to express myself and meet new people!
Most of my family and friends don't understand it at all, especially when I try to explain what I do on Mom Made That! My grandma REALLY doesn't get it, but then again, she doesn't get the internet. :)
You're right, there is a disconnect, and because of that, most don't take it as serious as we do. My dad was surprised that people actually purchase ad space on my sites. I told him that I worked very hard to get to that point!
I suppose blogging is my secret life. Ha!
They tend to think its a waste of time perhaps? ? Since it isnt "real" life. But then they dont think most people are a part of the blogging community, and yet, its like telling everyone your business. I do get very personal, venting or talking about my kids and family. I am not posting all personal, but its my blog, my writing place. Its gets personal. My hubby thinks its my "therapy" and supports it. He doesnt care if a family member might get irritated by reading it. Which makes me feel very supported and I love him all the more!
