The Boy Behind My Blog: Bloggy Stuff

Ok so second post of the day? NBD. I couldn't pass this one up tho. Mal and Stephanie came up with this adorable monthly link up called The Boys Behind The Blog and I immediately knew I wanted to convince Tom to do it. He's hilarious and smart and silly and fun and BLAHBLAH I know, you get it. But now you actually get to know him better!! He was more than happy to go along with this and I loved reading his responses. And because I can't keep my mouth shut, I added my thoughts in purple. And duh, pictures.
1. Does your wife/girlfriend/fiance use your real name or a nickname on her blog?
She uses my real name which I’m ok with.  That said, I’d be open to a nickname provided it was something cool like NightRaven or Notorious T or Old Bean or Skip McTangles.

Ok, I don't know why he thinks he's cool enough for those nick names. Although Skip McTangles made me laugh out loud. He calls me Bev or Beverly so he doesn't get NightRaven. At some point I'll tell you the story of how I became Bev.

At a family grad party last weekend.
2. If you had a blog, what would the title be?
That would depend on the theme of the blog: Wine Blog - Sauvignon Blog.  Beer Blog – Ziggy Zoggy Ziggy Zoggy Blog Blog Blog! Nausea Blog – Ugh! I Feel awful! I Think… Yeah… I Gotta Blog! Passive Aggression Blog – It’s fine..You Don’t Have to Read It… I Mean I Put A Lot of Effort Into It.. But… Oh really? You Think This A Long Title for a Blog? You’re Probably Right.. What do I Know About Blogging?

Sauvignon Blog is taken. He looked it up. But this answer is exactly why he shouldn't have his own blog.
3. Do you ever feel ignored by her because of the blog?
All the time.  I keep trying to explain to her that listening to my original acrostic poetry should be her top priority, but she just doesn’t get it.  In all seriousness, blogging has become a passion for her that imbues her with happiness and fulfillment.  And, since it’s not heroin, I’d  have to be an incredible a-hole not to support her 100%.

He really is awesome about it. And understanding. Most nights he goes to bed way before me. But seeing as we live in a studio, he's really not going far. Also "imbues"? I literally had to look that up. TOO SMART BRO. 
In love.
4. How has her blog changed or evolved throughout your relationship?
About a year ago she had another blog called Easy Peasy Glam.  It was a style and DIY sitch.  It wasn’t a bad blog there just really wasn’t much of her in it.  It felt kinda forced, like if Justin Beiber tried to record a country album.  I think she did about half a dozen posts before she gave it up.   But, about six months ago she started writing the first batch of posts for Dog Hair is An Accessory.  The style, format and tone was much more her.  She had found her outlet and her bloggy voice.  She fully committed herself to networking and link ups and making awesome blog friends. Our family and friends began to make a point of telling her how much they loved her blog.  In short, she had Mofoing Arrived!  WOOOOO! WOOOOO! WOOOO! WOOOOOO! WOOOOO!

Mofoing? It's fine. Is it that obvious I love this blog? I mean I do. Also I talk about my bloggy friends a lot, he knows all of you guys!
Upset because he's too full to eat his ice cream
5. What is your favorite post on her blog?
The post about the Maned Fox and the Beardsley Zoo is pretty high up there.  I love the part of that post where she lists the animals at the zoo and explains what is so great about them, which typically is that they are tiny or something along those lines.  Also Lil will be pissed if I don’t say any post with her in it.  So, yeah, any post with Lil.

Mmm good save there Dad, Lil reads my blog everyday and she would have totally bit you in the ass if you didn't mention her!
