I just finished rolling on the floor, laughing my toosh off (ROTFLMTO — not quite the same, but this is a family-friendly blog and I’m practicing my teen speak) at Dana’s post, “I Blog Because I’m A Loser” over at Kiss My List. In response, I decided to ask my own family why they think I blog. This is what I got…
Me: Hunny, why do I blog?
Him: I don’t know, hunny. Why DO you blog?
Me: I’m asking you, why do I blog?
Him: Because you like it.
Him: Hunny, I told you already.
Me: Why do I LIKE it?
Him: It brings you enjoyment
Ugh. After a while, I had to explain that Dana had asked her family members why they believed she blogged and that I was looking for his thoughts. Then he starts, spewing off random answers.
Him: …because you enjoys other people’s benefit from the sites you receive (Clearly, stumbling on his words, randomly piecing things together that just don’t work…WTF – maybe he means i like sharing my opinion on the products I review and hope that people will benefit from my reviews)
Him: …because you like making 20 cents every week
Him: …because you enjoy fiery wrists (I have bad carpal tunnel in both wrists and a ganglion cyst, but I’m still going)
Then, I asked my son aka I Am Teen, Hear Me Roar. I quickly realized this would go nowhere.
Me: Nicholas, why do I blog? (He responded rather quickly, as he apparently overheard the conversation from his bedroom. Where else would he be?)
TEEN: I don’t know (he actually said the complete words versus IDK. There’s hope!)
