My Non-Blogging Friends and Family Think Blogging Is.....

There is definitely a disconnect between those who blog and those who don't. What do your non-blogging friends and family think about blogging?

They actually find it pretty awesome and are glad I enjoy doing it.

I often received remarks from non blogging friends.. they said that I am wasting time doing blogging and revealing a lot of myself to strangers all over the world.. but to me, blogging is a kind of passion where we can rant out our feelings, seeking views and opinions and at the same time making friends with everyone who think like I do.. lol..

I think they think it's magic. Like it just... happens. It takes work and commitment. But worth it!

My family & some friends still haven't made the leap to a "paperless" lifestyle & get most of their information/entertainment from newspaper & television.  

 

My parents especially use the computer strictly for things like emailing & research so the term "professional blogger" was not something they could relate to.  I asked them to subscribe to my site so they can read me the way they would their favorite columnist everyday!  They read it now because it is delivered directly to their in-boxes!

Their attitude toward online entertainment got me to thinking about ways to make my blog accessible even to those who don't read "blogs". RSS feed subscriptions definitely makes that happen for me because a demographic of those who only really use the internet for email still can get and read my columns!

They don't think anything, because I haven't told them! And from the responses here, I probably won't!

Half of my friends have their own blogs and the other half have no clue what the whole thing is about. My husband is great though, he helps me with photos and to edit my posts.

I can understand. This is why I wrote: http://mymommyisablogger.com to help people better understand what I do! Maybe it will help you?

My husband thinks its alright. He actually wants me to start one for him so he can blog about his newest project! My mom could care less :P
My husband absolutely hates it.  He thinks it's a complete waste of time, but whatever.  And, my family and friends don't know about it.  I've only told my mother and sister, but they don't read it and I'm not comfortable telling anyone else.  Maybe one day.

Fantastically great post!   Perceptive yet entertaining as well.  Thanks.

ooooh, love this question! My grandmother is 88 and uses a computer, she is a huge fan of my blog and just can't believe all the folks I'm "meeting"!  But then there definitely are those (like many of my friends) who just don't get it. I think they think I must have a lot more free time then they do. Like "oh, it MUSt be nice to be able to surf the net like that."

 

For me, it has opened up a huge creative outlet. Unfortunately that stack of books I used to read is sitting in the corner gathering dust!
