Aloha Friday

Photobucket

It's Aloha Friday over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

My question for this week is:

Do your friends and family know that you blog? Have they ever seen it?

Of course my husband knows I blog and knows how to get to it. I have ONE friend that knows the name of my blog and has seen it. My parents have also seen it but almost never use the computer-they still have dial up. No one else knows the name of my blog. SOME friends and family member know that I blog-but they don't know the name of it and haven't seen it. I'm not sure why I've never shared it-I just haven't. I guess I don't work anymore and this is my way to get to know other people and "get out of the house" while still being home.

Pin It!

Yes they know and have seen it.

sheila said...

Wellll....lol. Yes they all know about it. Only 3 family members take the time to visit. *clears throat* and most of my friends do.

Casy Schweickart said...

Most everyone I know knows that I blog. I started it basically for my family that lives in Texas so they could keep up with my kid but then it just shot out of control and I am hooked! ;0)

Jennifer said...

Friends yes, family no.

jerricapuck said...

A few family memebers know (i.e. parents, sister, few cousins) but not many.

Nicole said...

Hubby isthe only one that knows that I have a blog, I have told a few friends but they have never seen it. I am new to the blogging so not completely on top of it yet!
As for Hubby when I first set it up I didn't tell him, he found it! lol I remember him being all sappy saying awwwee you made us a blog! lol He says I have no emotion so this was a sign of affction to him cause it was about us and our soon to be baby girl!

Kelli @ RTSM said...

A few of my friends know that I have a blog, and they have actually joined in too! Only my sister knows from my family...sometimes it is nice to have a place to share where your whole family doesn't know what you are thinking:)

shopannies said...

yes they know have seen it and my daughter also blogs

Jenna said...

Great question...My close family (brother, parents and hubby) know about my blog, but don't visit it often and I don't think many of my friends really know about it. I guess I've never really mentioned it.

Heather @ Green Baby Green Mama said...

They sure do!

Annie said...

All my friends and family know about my blog, read it and sometimes comment. Sure changes what I put on LOL

Twin-Spiration said...

The only people in my family that know is my mom...the others know that I blog but don't have the address. And I have about 3 of my friends that know. Other than that, I like to keep it that way so I am not having to think about who is reading it as I am writing my blog...I don't have to worry about hurting the innocent, if you will. LOL
Great blog!

My husband reads (and comments on!) my blog regularly. I know one of my cousins reads it, and a couple of my real-life friends, who also happen to be bloggers. That's about it.

Buffie said...

Some of my family members know and have seen it. Others may or may not know. It isn't a secret, but it isn't something I talk about at family gatherings either.

MOMMY-MOMO said...

So funny! I'm the same way. Some of my family and friends know about it. but not all. im picky about who i tell. im weird like that :)

My family does... His family knew of it, but didn't know the url for the longest time. And I rather preferred it. BUT he let it slip when talking to his brother {was stuck in a proud husband moment} - and they've been reading ever since. Still not completely sure how I feel about it, to be honest.

Shelly said...

My side of the family doesn't have any clue. My mom doesn't have internet access. My hubby's family knows and they stop by to check it out. My friends know but I don't know how often they read it b/c they don't leave comments. Hmm.

kpmattingly said...

Family, yes. Friends, some of them.
I did have it a secret for awhile, but then my sister noticed it open on my computer one day...and the rest is history. Since then I started writing much more often. I wasn't sure I wanted everyone reading some of the stuff I was writing but now I'm glad.

Laufa said...

Yes, I've attached my blog to update on my Facebook page. I started it, since all family is in other states.

The Blue Zoo said...

I've told my entire family about my blog. However very few of them read it.

Ohana Mama said...

My family yes...sorta wish my in laws hadn't found it through...it inhibits me a bit. Friends, yes, but it took a while for me to come out of the blogging closet :)

Sue said...

My family knows - but never reads it. They don't get the whole "blogging" thing. I told a couple of other mothers I know and they also didn't get it so no - I'm kinda alone in my blogging from anyone that I know in person.

Krystyn said...

My hubby and family know about it..I think they pop in every once and a while, but too often. However, God-forbid they ever actually leave a comment.

My friends know about it, too. Most don't get "blogging" though, so they don't understand. They spend all of their time on facebook.

Jennifer Leigh said...

Everyone knows. Sometimes I wish they didn't though. It keeps me respectful and honest though hee, hee!

Steph said...

My parents do not know (I think they'd get too anxious about me posting pictures) but anyone who is FB friends with me might know because I have the link in my profile and I've posted about it once or twice. Some may not have noticed, or some just don't get blogging. But I have a handfull of IRL friends who support it and comment. My husband knows I blog but to be honest, I don't think he likes the pictures either, but he still supports it because he knows I enjoy it.

Kari said...

My husband and kids know I have a blog, but, never read it. The rest of my family doesn't really know about it - they just don't "get it" and would probably think it's a waste of time. While I hate that they feel that way, it's sometimes nice to have my own little place to escape.

Jamie said...

My friends and family know about my personal blog but a lot of them don't know about my Suburban Saving Mama blog.

I want to know what you ordered from Eden's Fantasy with your $50 G.C....haha!

kuparstwn said...

Hubby knows about all of them, but doesn't read them I don't think.

Everyone else probably only knows about my 365 blog. The OOTs like to see new pics of the fam.

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

I don't know how many actually read, but I include my blog information on our annual Christmas card letter that goes out, so our family and friends do know about it. My close friends read, and apparently some of the other parents from my girls' school do (kinda weird-feeling!), but my parents don't (not web-savvy) and my brother doesn't either.

My hubby subscribes via e-mail - just so he can see the photos I post of the girls though. He doesn't see many photos otherwise since they're all on my laptop. :)

Amy A.K.A. "The Mrs." said...

My closest friends know I blog and they do visit...but rarely comment. I don't bring it up at Alex's nursery school group, though. I don't want to be stuck teaching a blogging basics class. lol.

Katie @ thinkPINK said...

My friends do, and my husband's family does. Not too sure about my family. So I have to watch what I say about the inlaws!

Stacie said...

My friends and family know i have a blog and they read it too. Sometimes I wish they didn't. LOL

JDaniel4's Mom said...

My family know and some stop by and leave comments.

kailani said...

I'm very selective about who sees my blog. Just my family and a few close friends know about it.

Krista said...

My family is just about the only people that leave comments on my blog! (the good AND the bad ; )

Mighty M said...

Mine know and I think they visit on a regular basis, BUT my younger sister is the only one who ever leaves a comment!

JamericanSpice said...

My SIL who is my best bud knows. My husband knows, but I don't share it with any other family member . I just want this spot to be mine.

Charlotte (Life's a Charm!) said...

a lot of my friends and family know that i blog and know how to get to it especially since i post photos in my blog not in FB or photo sites. whether they read my post or not, i don't know, but hubby and a lot of my friends i know read my blog.

Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma said...

Most of my friends and family know about and only a few have been to my blog. My next door neighbor started reading my blog and then she wanted to do one too. She just started blogging last month and is addicted! You can check her out at Tammy's Two Cents.

You have an amazing blog- you should tell everybody! :D

Thom said...

That they do. My mom comments everyday on my other blog but my main blog she doesn't. :)

Puanani503 said...

Family: No Friends: Maybe

Whimsical Creations said...

Yes they have seen it and visit it regularly.

Badger Momma said...

Yes, they know about it. Some like the idea, some think it's silly, and some hate it.

Baba said...

Yes they know. They rarely vist though.

pam said...

My parents know and I think my dad visits every day as well as my sisters. Other family knows but don't visit. My close friends know and I think they visit once in a while. Weird, isn't it?

Becca said...

Most everyone I know knows I have a blog...but I think only my mom reads it!

Tesa said...

Yep, thanks to my Hubby almost all of our family members know about the blog. Not many friends though. Sometimes I'm glad family members know and sometimes I wish I didn't have to think about them reading what I write!
