For this week’s Blogging Insights edition, Dr. Tanya wants to know what our family and friends think of our blogs. She wants to know…
How supportive are your family (or friends) of your blog?
After I retired at the end of 2016, my wife, as a way to keep me occupied and out of her hair, encouraged me to start a new blog. Once I started it and became, well, distracted by it, she’s shown little interest in it. She and my kids just consider my blog to be the random rantings and writings of an aging hippie, as do, apparently, most of my real world friends.
Do they do anything to help with your blogging efforts?
Nope. It’s my baby and I’m pretty much all on my own.
Do they read your work and offer a critique, if so, how do you react to it?
I can’t say for sure whether or not they read my blog. None of them has ever left a comment nor have they ever discussed any of my specific posts with me. But that’s fine with me. Blogging is my online, social media thing and tweeting, Instagramming, and Facebooking are their online, social media things.
