Family of Writers

I've gotten a lot of compliments on this blog, which is cool, because I don't write to hear people say nice thing about me. I just write because I have a lot to say and generally only a toddler to say them to. She's smarter than I give her credit for, but I suspect there's still a lot that I say that she doesn't quite understand.

I really enjoy writing in my blog when I get a chance. I never know exactly who reads it and I don't hardly ever plan what I'm going to say before I say it. It's just my creative outlet for anyone who dares enter my wild mind.

I have come across the phenomena that men don't blog (Matt Semanek, you are the exception, and you don't even blog that much). There's something about it that just screams "female" for some reason. Maybe it's because most of the guys I know have noticed that it is trendy among stay-at-home-moms to blog and brag about their babies, so in order to stay tough, they stay away from blogging in general.

Not my husband. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Brandon Strother, fellow blogger.

He wouldn't put it that way, but he's discovered a manly way to blog, and it makes me happy. Now we're a family of writers! He has been accepted as a columnist for Bleacher Report, a sports reporting website. Just amateur writings, but his stuff actually counts as being published. Technically, the articles he writes are more credible than my blog. I base all of this on what an English teacher would take as acceptable citations in a bibliography or works cited. A published internet article on a legitimate sports website definitely trumps a mom's blog on the free google website. Darn.

Anyway, if you're interested in sports feel free to visit bleacherreport.com and read some of my sportscaster husband's articles. Here's the link that will take you to his first published article.

Anyone want to start a pool on how long it will take Brooklyn to start writing her own thoughts on the internet? So far they'd probably go something like this:

"Daddy. Night night. Go. All done."

Wow. My family is talented beyond what my words can express.
