I know this may sound silly but for realz I get some very different reactions from family and a few friends when I mention my blog. Like its a bad word or something. What the hell is that about? (on the flip side, some friends that don't blog think it's great that I do and for that I thank you for your understanding of me and I love yous!)
My momma is one of my best friends and we are very close but when she says, "blog", she says it with a certain tone. Some of my siblings tease me about having a blog, as well...
Sometimes I invite a group of friends out and merge my friends. If you want to label it then it's my what...? My normal friends vs my blog friends? What the eff....can't it just be my friends? Some of my friends who do not blog don't want to come out if I'll be with my blog friends. I don't think its because we blog so to speak but because we are a little group and sometimes that can be intimidating to someone. That, I get. The connotation and emphasis on the word blog is what pisses me off.
Look people, I've met some awesome FRIENDS in the BLOG world. Both in real life and online. Some of the bloggers I have met I can relate to more than some of my other friends.
We don't sit around on our computers when we're together just blog, blog, blogging away like I imagine you all must think to say blog like you're saying
When we get together, we do the same things I do with everyone else: happy hours, dinners out, movie dates, game nights...shall I go on?
Even hubs has met some of the blogger husbands and made friends with them. Oh no, more friends, what shall we do?!
Basically I am slightly annoyed and hurt by those close to me that make fun of my hobby, if you will. Yes, I guess blogging is a hobby of mine. I'm not a great writer (nor am I trying to be!) but I do enjoy getting my thoughts out. Its theraputic for me. I've met some great friends along the way.
So yes, I am blogger. If that makes me weird, that is now your problem. I'm done caring what the rest of you non-blogger haters think about it.
That's all I got for today.
