When my wife first proposed starting a blog, my initial thought was, "Honey, that will be a great outlet for you. It won't totally replace the things you miss about TV, but maybe it will be a good substitute."
Her response, "The blog is for both of us because you're a great writer, too. This is your opportunity to put that passion into play. I'm thinking we'll write about fashion, food and fun - the three 'f's."
"But honey, you've seen the way I dress. What do I know about fashion?" I replied.
"Nothing, I will probably do that," she said.
"Well, you know I'm not a good cook, so what will I contribute?" I asked.
"You like to eat, so you could write about that and maybe some of your famous recipe disasters, like when you thought 1/4 teaspoon was 1/4 cup. That was fun," she said.
"Okay, so I will write about family and fun?" I asked.
"Yes, but I will also write about those topics," she replied.
"So then, why do you want me to write, too?" I asked.
"Because, it will be fun and I want us to do it together," she said.
So that brings us to today and my first blog post. This is something new for me, but I think it will be an enjoyable outlet as well.
