Getting tired of fighting with your spouse over things that aren’t worth arguing about?
It is indeed exhausting to enter a word battle with someone special just because one of you got their ego bruised or is a sour loser. The arguments will eventually suck the life – and love – out of you until divorce becomes the best choice. As what Kurt Smith, Psy.D. said, “Falling in love is easy to do, almost effortless, but losing that loving feeling is not that hard to do, either.”
If you want that option removed entirely, though, you need a diversion – an activity to keep you busy or prevent your marriage from suffering due to your constant fights.
To some, it is wood carving, shopping, or other stuff that lets them get out of the house for a while. To writing enthusiasts like us, it is none other than blogging. The benefits the latter comes with are endless, but they mostly involve:
Giving You An Extra Source Of Income
What is the usual cause of squabbles in a household? Money, no less. It is either the wife does not possess excellent budgeting skills, or the husband is not handing in enough cash to pay all the bills or vice versa. The more it happens, the more the couple may lose respect for each other.
Blogging, luckily, may solve that since you can earn from allowing brands to place their advertisements on your website or getting sponsored by companies to write about their latest products. While the income may be unstable, especially within the first year, you might snap at one another less once you realize that you have a new source of revenue, and the profits can rise as long as you stay consistent with the blogs.
Enabling You To Recollect Old Memories
Considering the blog site concentrates on how-to and family-based articles, there’ll be moments wherein you will not be able to help but ask your spouse to clarify certain parts of your memory that seem vague. If you do that on a good day, he or she will surely be glad to assist you in remembering such stuff.
The constant trips down the recollection lane do not only ensure that your blogs have precise details. That also enables peace to settle between you and your partner, and so it is not difficult to reminisce about the ups and downs you survived as a couple. Thus, it may strengthen rather than weaken your marriage.
Letting You Work Together
Although blogging is a job that you can do at home, it is not as easy as many assume. It requires you each time to come up with an exciting topic, expound that in plenty of words, proofread your output, and then publish it on the website – in that order. In case you are a novice in this area, the entire process of making a single article and putting it out there can take anywhere from one to ten hours. (No kidding!)
Once your better half sees how hard you are working, he or she will ideally try to help out in any aspect possible. For example, if the spouse is computer savvy, they can run the site or ascertain that there are no glitches in the system. Alternatively, they will look after the kids or take care of your chores while you are busy writing. A few months later, you two will notice that you are more like a team now more than ever. “The difference with healthy relationships is that “partners repair any distress they have caused each other in a timely fashion,” said Clinton Power, a clinical relationship counselor.
Is it already crystal clear how your marriage can benefit from creating blogs? Of course, there’s a possibility that you might find it annoying or you will find a different activity that will lessen your arguments, but you will never be so sure unless you check blogging off the list. So try it before things get even hotter between you two in a wrong way. “When both partners have a strong commitment to a relationship, this leads to a strong sense of trust, which makes love last,” Dr. Mike McNulty explains.
