The Boys Behind The Blog {Link Up #1}

The Boys Behind the Blog is a new link-up featuring your husbands, fiances, and boyfriends!  Mallory and I know that many of you have incredibly supportive men behind you and your blog and we want to give them a chance to have their voice heard too.  Ask your man five easy questions and link up with us on the third Thursday of the month!
I'm obviously happy to have my sweet hubby Stephen taking over NTSST today....
1. Does your wife/girlfriend/fiance use your real name or a nickname on her blog?
More often than not, I would say she refers to me as hubby or husband, but I’m sure I’ve been slipped in there on a number of occasions with my real name.  I’m not against either way.  If or when she starts referring to me as “that man” or something to that effect, I’d appreciate if someone could drop me a quick line. Thanks!

2. If you had a blog, what would the title be?
Adventures in Real Life.  That’s a terrible title, and I’ll tell you why.  Let’s rewind a bit.  On Stephanie’s encouragement, I started a blog a few years ago.  It was not long-lived; I got bored.  I think the problem lied in the fact that the title was too generic.  I did not have a focused subject to write about, therefore I wrote nothing because I did not know what to write about.  It became a chore, which this should never be if you’d like to maintain a half interested audience.  If there were a next time, I’d have a more focused title and subject. If.

3. Do you ever feel ignored by her because of the blog?
Sometimes I feel like Stewie from “Family Guy” trying to get her attention away from the laptop screen. Mom. Mom. Mommy. Mommy. MA! MA!
I know she loves doing it, and I’m behind her 110%, especially because of all the delicious meals I get out of it.  So while she’s 
sometimes engrossed, I know it’s for good cause.  Now I just need a man-cave so I can have a place to do my thing while she does her blog things.  Even a garage would do. ;-)

4. How has her blog changed or evolved throughout your relationship?
The blog actually started out as a way for her to document a cross-country trip we took together 4 years ago, before we moved to Florida.  She wanted to be able to show our parents all the things we were doing without having to be in constant contact (since we weren’t sure we were going to be able to out in the Wild West).  After we moved, it evolved into a means for sharing our new life together, since we were so far from our families and everything we knew.  As we built our life together, it changed names and subject again, focusing this time on her (delicious) kitchen exploits.  With all the new changes coming for us later this summer, I sort of expect another evolution, but that has yet to be seen.

5. What is your favorite post on her blog?
I can’t say that there is just one.  I can see how much she loves sharing when we have big news, so I get a kick out of when she shares it with all her readers.  In that way, it’s been a fun time as she posts her bumpdates and we shared the gender reveal.  It will be fun to see what comes of the blog when our little lady finally arrives.

Thanks for reading; I hope you get as much of a kick out of this little project as I do!
