How long have you been married?

I've been married to The Generous Husband for 27 years as of January 2012.

Why did you start your marriage blog?

Years ago I watched as generosity made a big impact on my marriage. I figured it would be fun to share what I was learning and hopefully help others grow in their marriage.

What do you cover in your marriage blog?

I cover pretty much any topic that effects marriage, but mainly I try to offer perspectives and ideas on how to live generously with your spouse. My posts are typically short and practical, a daily reminder to grow your marriage.

Advice

  • Pray.
  • Start small and simple. Add only as you have a good handle on what you are doing.
  • Work to create quality content.
  • Connect with other bloggers in your field for encouragement and help.
  • Attracting readers is really about offering quality content and connecting with people. Word of mouth is a far superior way to grow, so I don't think I can offer any "get popular quick" tips. Work hard, care about your readers and your blog will grow.
