  1. I believe I have heard 95% of those at one point or another.

    My all time favorite is this seeing as I blog about current events in certain areas:

    Did you hear/see/know about such and such? (Fill in BIG EVENT that just happened in any category that I blog on)

    I get that from people a lot except for those who finally ‘get’ that the blog I refer them to is MINE. lol

  2. Thanks for the twitter shout-out! My kids actually want me to write about all their shenanigans. I don’t let them read my blog but they understand what it is and it makes them feel important. 🙂

  4. Oh yeah! I think we can all relate!

    My MIL & SIL are always commenting how they wish there was more pictures of Elijah or of them, etc on BOTH my personal and my ‘business’ blog.

    There is also a lot of ‘Well if you need _____ why don’t you just blog about it and see if someone will give it to you instead of us having to buy it?’ from family.

    They don’t really get that this is basically a job and I don’t do this just to get free stuff and post about them. It started as cute, but now honestly it’s just so annoying there are times I wish I could go back to before they knew about it. And there are times because of it I have SERIOUSLY considered quitting all together.

  5. I love this list. Since I blog about relationships my kids are not very interested in my blogging. (Yuck, stuff about love and mushy stuff is their general opinion). The first time I ever wrote anything about my husband in a post was because he suggested it. That did shock me a little.

  6. I’ve heard similar things from family members as well. Great list!

  7. These are great responses. My kids always think they’re famous when I put their pictures online! And since the focus of my blog is on the personal development of moms, they want to know how come they don’t get as many toys in the mail as they used to!

  8. OMG Love this post!! Everytime we come across something interesting, my kids are like, “Mommy, you need to put this on your blog.” They are my “lead generators.” LOL! Lately, they have been really great about reminding me to have my camera with me at all times, “just in case we see something that needs a picture for the blog”. Gotta love it!

  9. I pretty much get “Are you still on the computer?” But they are getting much better at looking out for things I should blog about:)

  10. Too funny, I think I have heard at least one or two of those! I love your background/button, very creative!

  11. Hehehe lol…nicely written.
