What does your Family think about your Blog?

Samples of conversations with family members after I started blogging. I will not delve  into those instances when I had to get them  to view my Blog at my insistence or at least read a  post completely (as in c-o-m-p-l-e-t-e-l-y, as in ensuring I don’t get the i-get-the-drift-but-too-much-to-read reaction).

As early entrant

Me – Guess what, I got 200 views on my Blog so far, isn’t that cool?

Brother – You only must have clicked it so many times.

Me – Hahaha (albeit dryly as enthusiasm wanes)

As progressive blogger

I discover my Mother has become hooked onto visiting a Blog regularly. Just that it’s not mine.

Me – It’s unfair. You only read Amitabh Bachchan’s Blog all the time – not mine.

Mother – I also read yours (albeit guiltily)

Which makes me conclude that everyone can write about how to drive traffic to your Blog … but I’ll have you know that driving your own family to visit your Blog is pretty damn hard.

Jesus said “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.”

I agreed & said – Amen.

  1. I have a pretty supportive family–two sisters, a daughter, and a brother follow my blog, and sometimes my husband will say something that makes me realize he has sneaked a peek too. I love the quote about prophets in their own country!

    • Oh then just give thanks for that …count yer many blessings in blogdom 🙂 H’mmm getting my family to visit my blog of their own accord…now that is what I call idealism 😉

  2. You are not alone! Apart from my dear daughter, I have just one other friend who I actually browbeat into following me and commenting a couple of times 🙂

    • Thanks Madhu …glad to know I have company 🙂 Lookin forward to having them visit on their own without me dragging them (kicking & screaming not yet happened though)….lol

  3. ‘Write like no one’s reading’ a quote from one of your earlier post! keep writing. No comments only means that others have nothing to add. By the way, I do read your blogs regularly.

  4. Oye Kavi…your spot on :-)…nevertheless, I am sure you know your lovable family, including your mischievous brothers, well enough….they all must be peeking into your blogs with your knowledge :-)…I read your blogs whenever I find the time to do so. and they are interesting read :-)!

    • Thanks for swinging by 🙂 Your quite optimistic aren’t you… ‘imagining’ they would peek in without my knowledge… LOL. Anyway it’s good to know you do pop by atleast oacasionally…thank you 🙂

  5. I know exactly what you’re talking about. I have three sons who all say they’ve ‘looked’ at my blog. And my husband is a follower of my blog but never speaks to me about it (probably out of fear). I honestly have no idea what he thinks of my writing. Oh well, I like that comment ‘write like no one’s reading’. That’s easy if I’m writing for my family! Fortunately I’m not, which means that through the kindness of strangers I end up with a few ‘likes’ and comments.

    • It all sounds so familiar…lol …especially the kindness of strangers 🙂 ‘We shall overcome’ comes to mind… cheers & keep writing!
