We’ve debated and delayed it for a while, but we’re finally deciding to start a new blog. We’ve seen a lot of other couples do blogs, but they often fizzle out after a few posts, so we weren’t sure if we would have the time to commit to it. We also didn’t want to do the cliche “Let’s start blogging about our marriage cause we’re married now.” But… we are. Here’s why:
Why We Want to Blog
First let me say that I hate writing. I’m slow at it and I don’t enjoy it. I also don’t like sharing either, I tend to keep my thoughts to myself. So starting this blog is a way of breaking out of those two things.
Marriage has been great, but it definitely hasn’t been perfect. Not by a long shot. Throughout dating, being engaged, and being married, we’ve had tons of arguments. Sometimes once a week. Sometimes everyday. We’ve learned a few things from these fights. Not a lot, but a tad here and there. So hopefully by sharing them, we might be able to help others in their relationship conflicts. Not that we’ll solve your relationship. But hopefully at least help you know why you’re fighting.
We’ve also “been there.” So we’ll throwback once in a while to our single and dating life stages, and try to offer up some reflections. Cause what we did then certainly impacts our marriage now, both good and bad.
We honestly want to be transparent and serve others. The stuff we’ve learned, we want to share with you. The stuff we’re struggling with, we want to be honest about and get your opinion on.
It’s also very therapeutic. By writing this stuff out, we’re selfishly helping ourselves understand our relationship a little better.
What We’ll Be Blogging About
Primarily, it’ll be a lot of conflict resolution stuff. Whenever we get into fights, we’ll try to both reflect on it and offer up our two different perspectives. Hopefully it’ll help you (and us) track how we got into the fight, what could’ve been avoided, and practical steps out of it.
Being in a relationship brings on a whole new set of challenges to both of us individually and as a couple in all aspects of our life. We’ll be sharing those perspectives and hopefully offer a place for you to relate.
We’ve got some tricks up our sleeve. Tricks for a better marriage and better life in general, which we’re hoping will be useful to you.
Finally, we’re going to do videos once in a while to try and bring you into our daily lives, thoughts and conversations.
We decided this a few days before the new year, so I going to commit to doing this blog at least for the next year, and will aim to write every week or two, if not more.
