I don’t even remember how it happened.
Perhaps it was a link on Facebook, maybe it was twitter.
But it was a glorious day when I discovered this new blog.
Written by a guy.
The husband of a craft blogger (one that I love oh-so-much).
I read, and read, and read as he hilariously documented the life of a guy married to a crafty gal. I knew i just had to ask him to introduce himself to y’all.
So here he is:
Surprisingly enough, the mommy/craft blog world is dominated by, well, mommies. Think of your three favorite blogs. How many of them are authored by men? Yep, that’s what I thought. It’s a woman’s world. That said, many of you have male significant others who probably watch your blog involvement with puzzled bemusement.
Want to know what those men are really thinking?
I’m Trevor, husband of Mandy, the crafting momma at Sugar Bee Crafts. Earlier this year we celebrated our eleventh anniversary and Mandy invited me to “guest post” on her blog and share my version of our love story in honor of our eleven year anniversary. Realizing that it’s every guy’s dream to write his love story and post it on the web for the world to see, I jumped at the chance – you can read that sappy tale here. Rest assured, I got a lot of high-fives from my guy friends after the post. They all said it was really sweet and all and wished they could do the same…or something like that.
Following the feedback from the love story post, I decided to take my act on the road and start my own blog. Hence So I Married A Craft Blogger was born. I ask out loud (and sometimes answer) the questions your husbands, boyfriends, and other men in your life have been thinking, such as:
- Is a “before picture” really necessary?
- Does the world really need to know what you wore Wednesday?
- What’s the point of a frame wall?
Here’s how it works: I share my honest perspective of being married to a craft blogger. That means the good, the bad, and the…well, I better not go there. I share what I think and experience and Mandy promises not to get upset or offended.
Having a husband and wife blogging duo in our home has definitely made it an interesting place. All of the funny things that happen day to day are fair game for blog material. The kids have all wanted to to start a blog at one point or another, which means we create a Word document into which we help them write and insert pictures. It gives me something to chat about with the male engineers at my work. Mandy loves it because she gets to spend more time blogging and claim it’s “one-on-one” time with her husband.
So come visit So I Married A Craft Blogger and read a post or two. Or take the challenge and get your man to read a few posts. You’ll see him shaking his head in agreement.
