After reading a few blog posts this morning about the guys behind the blogs, I decided I needed to hop in and tell you all about Devin. (If you’re new and wondering who the girl is behind the blog, read these posts)
The Guys behind the Blogs is a link up party hosted by Betsy, featuring the men in our lives who are behind the scenes of our blogs.
Devin is a big part of this blog. Originally, when we launched the blog we intended it to be a husband/wife duo blog, with both of us writing posts. After we got going though, we decided to have me be the face of the show. Plus, he’s busy being an engineer at work and a dad at home. He does have 2 posts though, and his post on removing your own pageviews in Google Analytics is one of our most “googled” blog posts (it’s a good one, you should read it. We tried many tutorials online, and none of them worked. Ours works like a charm).
Anyway, on with the interview Questions.
All about Devin, the man behind Blog Ambitions
1. Have you ever had a blog, or have you ever considered starting one?
YES! I started a blog back in 2008. I forgot about it until 2010 when I stumbled upon my post. I left a comment. You should check it out.
(In his spare time, Devin daydreams what kind of blog he or I can start next. He’s always looking for the next big thing. One day he’ll have a blog of his own!)
2. What do you think about Kristie’s blog?
I like it. And she likes it. I think she has done a really good job with it. If anybody has any questions about how to start a blog and make it successful, then they haven’t read her posts!
3. What is your favorite post that Kristie has written?
Kristie would genuinely answer this question, “This post because I think it has helped the most people and I enjoy being able to help people be successful.” But I am going to be honest here, I need to go check our analytics to see which one brings in the most income to answer this question!
4. If you could be a member of any band, which one would it be?
5. Valentine’s Day is on the horizon – are you the date planner type or do you fly by the seat of your pants? Do you have anything planned for February 14 this year?
Uhm, is my wife going to read this??? I am a planner… 😉
6. Tell us about a date-night-gone-wrong for you and your wife. If it’s funny, all the better!
All of our dates are perfect. We put all these movies like “while you were sleeping” and “The vow” to shame.
5. And let’s cover all the topics…sports…who are you rooting for in the Superbowl and why?
Seahawks!!! Because they are the best of course! Everyone knows that. (I’m sure you weren’t surprised to read that, based on our blog’s current colors.)
Devin is super supportive of this blog. He helps me with ideas, he helps me prioritize all of my crazy plans, he proofreads my posts, and lets me talk blog talk at the dinner table. He’s a keeper.
Here’s a few of my favorite pictures of Devin:
