Why My Blog Isn't Famous

I think I've figured it out.  Of course, it could be that my life isn't as interesting as these other women.....Nah!  That can't be it.  So, after studying their blogs, I came up with the real reason my blog is still unknown.

I don't have a creative, quirky name for my husband. 

Seriously.  They all have one.  nienie has her Mr. Nelson.  cjane's hubby is Chup (sounds like 'soup', but I still say it like 'cup' in my head. Can't help it.)   The Mom writer-Ruth- calls her husband Sir Scott. And, my favorite nickname?  The Pioneer Woman has the Marlboro Man.   See? Cute. Fun.
I've tried some different names, but nothing has felt right.  So, I'm trying to come up with something. Here's a few ideas-

  • The Spider Exterminator-  this is accurate, it is what he does, but it seems a bit long and not very catchy.
  • Vanilla Ice- because he likes vanilla ice cream-really, it's his favorite. But, I think this one is taken.
  • My Guy- a play off his name, but he really hates it, so, no.
  • The Handy-Man- because he's so good with his hands. His work, ok? He builds stuff. Get those dirty thoughts out of your head!
  • Daddy-O - Sounds too 50's, and no, I was not alive then!
  • Texting Buddy- who knew a couple of old people would learn to use modern communication? But, it's a bit teenagerish.
  • Hunk-a-hunk-of-burnin-love- Well, this one is accurate, but my mom reads this, and possibly his mom, too. Awkward.
Guess I'll have to stick with his real name and accept my blog being unpopular. Oh, well.

  1. I call Philip "Hunk-a-hunk-a-burning-love"! He likes/likes Elvis and has been known to sing like him from time to time.

    For your man, I like "Handy Man", it sounds very husbandish and particularly applies to your man.
