Why my husband should read my blog

IMG_0349Never one to pass up an opportunity, I’m using a situation that occurred yesterday to get a little familial love. Not that kind of familial love! Seriously. I mean spousal support and validation.

It seems my husband’s phone lit up yesterday after I published my post about cleaning out the garage. He asked me what I’d written when he returned home.

Asked me, because he doesn’t read my blog. He subscribes by email, but he doesn’t read past the blurb.

“It’s too much trouble to log in and everything,” he said.

“Click,” I responded. “All you have to do is click.”

This isn’t the first time this has happened, and let me say, I’m really flattered that so many of his friends are readers. But he should be reading it, too, if for no other reason than to know why the rolling pin is coming at him when he walks in the door.

So I’m giving him one more chance to see what I’ve disclosed to countless others. Here, in one easy list, are all the recent blog posts in which he figures prominently, so he will know that his friends know:

So there you are, dearest. Now you can catch up. All you have to do is click. See you tonight.

  1. Hahahaha! I hope he reads them! 🙂
    My husband does not read my blog all the time unless it’s a post for him. I also quiz him about it right after to make sure he did! Hahahahaha.

  2. Good luck with this. Alas, my long-suffering wife is my proofreader, so she “gets” to read my posts several times.😃

  3. This is brilliant! John reads mine. He will randomly bring up something I wrote days or weeks ago that I have forgotten about. One time I was doing a link up and one of the questions was name a celebrity that you have a crush on. My answer was Chase Landry on Swamp People. The next time we watched that show he made some snarky remark about it. Oops.

  4. I often quiz my husband or just put him on the spot and make him read it while I watch and ask ‘what part are you reading now?’ every time he cracks a smile. Poor guy. I gotta say, the sled dog thing is reason to keep him in my book!

  5. I love this! My husband doesn’t read my posts because he says it’s my personal space. So, I’ve started tagging him on FB. That get’s his attention because others comment and his phone buzzes all day. In his defense, he did read my posts while I was parading around Italy. I don’t think he’ll keep it up though. So Facebook tagging it is!

    • Ha, ha! My husband won’t friend me on FB either. We take the concept of personal space to a whole new level. And yet we’ve managed to stay married for over 20 years.

  8. So funny! My husband doesn’t read my blog either. I’m a little insulted, but he just doesn’t see the point – he says he already knows everything I’m going to say anyway 🙂 I need to write something shocking to shake him up!

    • My husband could not possibly know what I’m going to write which is why he should read – I bet you could think of something to surprise yours 😉

  9. That should be a mantra for all of us: “All you have to do is click!” (Does he know a haiku is only seventeen measly syllables each and every time!!?!?!?!)

    Happy Monday, dear one! I hope on Father’s day he found some time to read his wife’s yummy goodness! LOL!!

    • Considering how much effort it requires to get him to do something like taking down the Christmas lights, a guest-post might need a two-year lead time.
