Another recent phenomenon, along the line of Mommy Blogs is couples blogs. I only started being aware of this a few months ago.
The couples blog is always written by the wife, but is often written from the point of view of 'we'.
These blogs tend to be amusing. They are all so similar. Every entry is about how much they are in love and the word 'amazing' is used to describe almost everything. Lots of of hugging,kissing and date pictures that make me feel kind of uncomfortable but, for all I know, are seen as cute and romantic to the female friends who read it.
While these blogs are mostly amusing curiosities to me, they are also a bit unsettling to me. That a person would want to present themselves as having no identity or thoughts outside of their relationship. I suppose that is what being young and in love is often about, however strange that may be to me. It would be somewhat more understandable if these couples had their individual blogs in addition to the couple blogs, but as far as I can tell, the couples blogs are it. I wonder for how long will these young couples maintain their relationship celebrating blogs? After time will they tire of it, and want some blogging independence?
What I am curious about is this: is this a Mormon phenomenon? I have only ever seen young Mormon couples with this type of blog, however the only young married couples I even know are Mormon, so I don't have a good pool to judge from. Does anyone have any insight to this question?
here is a good example of a couples blog
Looking over that link it occurred to me that a Mormon Couple Blog is basically a Mormon Mommy blog, before the woman has a bunch of kids to write about.
