Hubby says when we play dominoes, scrabble or cribbage with MOH it brings out my competitive streak. I never thought I had one to be honest, and usually accept losing gracefully as, well, I usually end up losing!
MOH is competitive though, so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that it brings mine out too, and he grumbles that Hubby and I are ganging up on him should the dice not fall in his favour sotospeak.
Our last little tournament of 7 games was actually one of the best we’d played. Sure, I was ‘frozen out’ by the lads blocking the ends with dots I couldn’t match on many an occasion, but with 2 games each at the final game, anyone could win, and this time it was me.
Now Hubby has been blogging a full year longer than I, and it was his idea that I start.
I never saw it as a competition, but in a way it’s actually turned out to be.
Hubby’s blog is way different to mine, his posts being informative, some covering current events or news items, humourous sometimes, and his compilation graphics are brilliant.
We share several followers (who I believe realise we’re ‘related’) and this morning both noticed no movement in our Blog stats or additions to our Readers since 9 o’clock last night, yet comments and likes have been forthcoming since then, so I’m just a tad confused how WP calculate all the data they throw up on our screens.
Hubby reached his 1000th post before me and is hoping to reach number 1300 by the end of the week. I’m not that far behind, but there’s no way I can catch him up. Maybe by 1500.
I’ve overtaken him in views and followers at the moment, but he still holds the title for most comments and the highest number of views in one day.
I’m finding it interesting though.
Our childhoods and backgrounds were totally different, as were our working lives. Our star signs are opposites, yet we have similar values and opinions but aren’t always in agreement, unless it’s to agree to differ.
They say you never really know someone until you live with them. Maybe they should extend that to include Blogging. We’ve been together over 26 years, and I’m still learning!
