Me…exposed


I read a blog called June Cleaver After a Six-Pack .  It’s a fairly irreverent look at life by a military wife as she handles daily trials and tribulations.  She has an interesting perspective on all sorts of things and is a ton of fun to read.  Anyhow, she interviewed me for a piece on her blog called Swooning Over A Regular Joe… With a title like that, how could I possibly refuse?  June sent me a bunch of questions and I answered them as best I could.  If you get a chance, drop over and have a look at her site.  It’s a lot of fun!

It was pretty strange answering her questions and participating in this interview.  You know, it is sort of cool to talk about myself, but it’s also a little freaky and vain.  I am not sure how many people might see the post on her blog, but it is still strange to think of how people might take the words I wrote, miss my intentions, etc.  Luckily, I am a guy so I don’t really care what people think.  In fact, I am completely oblivious to social cues in general (maybe that’s just me, not guys in general?). 

When I started blogging, I debated how much of the real me I wanted to put out into the ether.  Did I want to use my real name and talk about the city in which I live?  Should I show my kids’ faces or talk about my friends?  After a lot of debate, I decided that the world is mostly good and that I am not really important enough for it to matter if I put myself out there a little bit.  So far, it has been a lot of fun and I have met a few people and gotten to know them a little better, even though I have never seen their faces.  I guess the internet might make life a little less personal, but in a way, I have gotten a little closer to people than I might otherwise have been able to do.

So, here’s to blogging and to laying it on the line.  Thanks for the fun June!

  1. Well I’m glad you are out here laying you life out for us to chuckle at. Blogdom is a better place for having you in it.

    BTW, I was gonna comment on your last post but didn’t understand it enough to even try!

    I’m off you read your interview…now that you are a celebrity and all!

  2. HA! Well, you know, my ego was already pretty bold, but, as June said, she has “fed the beast!” My wife does give the goods and I really fussed at her. Now I am sleeping on the couch. I am thinking that something isn’t fair in that deal. I feel a little like Kevin Federline! Wait for the book deal…
