I'm curious to know whether the non-blogging people in your lives are interested in hearing about your blogging. I've mentioned my blog often to my family and friends. I have noticed that they don't necessarily pursue the conversation. They may nod or make a brief comment, but they don't want to go much further.
Blogging is one of my favorite activities. It brings me comfort and joy. I love that I have this chance to share my creativity through my poetry. I really feel lucky to be part of this wonderful blogging community. Connecting with so many great bloggers has added so much to my daily life. Being home with the kids all day, it is nice to know that a thoughtful or even funny comment is waiting for me when I log in.
Since I get a lukewarm response from the non-bloggers in my life, I am starting to keep my blogging a private activity. In some ways, I enjoy having something just for me. On the other hand, it would be nice if my family and friends were more open to hearing about my blogging for a few minutes.
My kids do enjoy hearing about the funny things that I find on blogs. It keeps them smiling :)
Can you discuss blogging at your dining room table? Or do you keep it mostly to yourself?
