Almost everyone in our family has a blog. With all the blogging comes the silent rule that we siblings all follow: Nobody is allowed to ever leave a message on the answering machine of any other sibling blogger about what they wrote in their blog if the spouse of that blogger might hear it. We also warn each other when our mother is about to flip over something we wrote ...you know, just common courtesy. Usually, at family functions, Lee breaks the code by saying in front of everyone, Your blog was really funny the other day. How many hits do you get from it? while both of our husbands try to grasp what he just asked and why. What blog? They have a blog? I didn't know they have a blog. We change the subject by offering second helpings of dessert and hope things move on as Mom runs to the laptop to see if we've mentioned anything about what was really going on in our house all those years ago.
Imagine my shock today when, in an effort to do no real work, I surfed over to Claudine Hellmuth's blog and found HER HUSBAND, Paul, substitute blogging for her. HOLY CRAP! She must know about this. They do do those podcasts together..but, STILL! We briefly met Paul at CHA last week and he was very nice and his own blog is very funny. We're well aware that Claudine is quite the trendsetter and let us both assure you that no matter where we are in the world, there's no way we'll ever let either of our husbands know how to access our account (that would require us telling them about the blog). Blogs aren't community property are they?
