I’m a waiting bee, and I love looking through boards and reading that other people are going through the same things I’m going through.
I was wondering if there are any blogs, on WB or otherwise, that are by someone who is waiting? I think it would be nice to read a blog by a person like that, follow them on their story, get new tips every day on how to talk to SO, or not talk, what to do instead of talk about wedding stuff, etc.
Yes, I’ve already read Mr. Bee’s tips, but I feel like a blog about it would be cool too, if one existed.

I think it would be hard. Waiting is such a roller coaster that everyone rides differently! And with inevitable negativity/frustration that is the waiting norm, I’m not sure how it would read!
this board with the good and bad news everyday gives a pretty good idea. And there’s always someone on an up day when you’re having a down!

@peachykeener: Yeah, I can’t imagine one solely dedicated to waiting like a wedding blog would be all about planning. I’m sure there must be blogs by girls in relationships who aren’t engaged yet, but I doubt they would JUST be about the waiting game. I think the best bet is to stick with the waiting boards, maybe join the Shut It Up Pact… you end up hearing a bunch of people’s whole stories… kind of like reading posts from all the Bee bloggers.

@peachykeener: I’ve looked for one and I’ve thought about starting one myself lol….a trials and tribulations of the waiting stress and excitement!!!
But I haven’t quite had the guts to put myself out there like that lol. Not yet anyway

A practical wedding has a section with great essays on the waiting period – they call it being “pre-engaged”. I actually really like their whole blog (now that I’m actually engaged), because it’s very realistic and makes me feel better rather than stressed out.

I think it would be awesome to have a waiting blog written by a few different waiting bees. Just to get different views and stories. My mom writes a book review blog and she has a review team. Sometimes they all read the same book but have COMPLETELY different reviews.
