@LauraCYW: my blog is linked to Network Blogs and automatically updates my Facebook when I post a new blog.

I know my bridal party reads it when it posts to FB, but I know none of my guests have looked at it since I have a tracker and I can tell where the traffic is coming from. I think his grandmother checked it out once and commented on the dress code set by the venue. She joked that she only wore jogging suits now that she’s retired.

Even the blogging BEE’s don’t share everything. They leave surprises for readers and guests. There are some things I will not post about until after the wedding.

Not specifically, although a few of my guests read it. It was originally mainly for my FI so that I wouldn’t chatter at him about weddings all the time. Now I write it for whoever is interested πŸ™‚

@LauraCYW: Don’t think we’re allowed to post our blogs here (the self-promotion policy), but I’m easily found on the blogs thread or by clicking on my profile. I imagine you can find MissTatoo the same way…

I was just thinking about that this morning. I really would rather my guests not read my blog because I want most everything to be a surprise. I’ll direct guests to my wedding website… whenever I finally set one up.

I’m considering opening another blogger account and making that the basis for my wedding website. You can buy a custom domain through Google/Blogger for $10 a year and the blog acts much like a “regular” website once you add pages.

And I agree with previous posters about using your blog as an outlet. It makes me a little more bearable, I’m sure. LOL

I also like it because I can keep all my planning information in one place and categorize it… like it’s an online wedding planning binder! πŸ˜€

@Stellar Magnitude: My FI bought the domain from somewhere like fasthosts. Think it cost £8 ($12) for two years. The domain is linked to my blogger account, so people can get to me via my “.co.uk” rather than “.blogspot.com”.

And it definitely keeps a lid on my obsession with wedding talk – that and reading other wedding blogs! I’ve even gained a couple of online friends to obsess with πŸ™‚

@LauraCYW: I would love to swap blogs with you (assuming you have one of course)! I sent you a message.
