There are obviously some feelings here that made this article necessary...

Ogden, UT

There are generally two kinds of posts I see on FB. Complain about everything, or brag about how perfect life is. In reality most of us live somewhere in the middle. I think this blog post is just a reminder to people to not compare themselves with others and focus on improving their own relationships and themselves. Thanks for writing this, it was good for me to think about.

Nice article with some good points. I would like to point out that husbands sometimes like, and even need, their wives to gush over them. Certainly it should be measured but keep in mind that perhaps there are wives that brag about their husbands not for competitive purposes, but rather to let their husbands know how much they are loved and appreciated.

you have a husband and a cat, nice life! Let's talk when you have your first kid and he couldn't wake up at 2 am to change diaper - if he pass that test, he's cool...LOL

It seems that the first part of the article was very much a #myhusbandsbetterthanyours. I think a great way to honor your marriage is to refrain from blogging about it to the world. You can tell your husband he's awesome to his face all you want. It just seems the most respectful to #keepitbetweenthetwoofyou.

I have extended family who post photos and blog all day long.

I wonder how they have time for that.

I wonder what else they are doing with their lives.

Balance is important. In our relationships, in our personal time, our health, spiritual, mental, spiritual, service, work, play parts of life.

Blogging all day is so lame.

A good reminder to remain balanced. I agree with the "over sharing" comment. With all that does get shared in today's world, couples need to be careful to keep enough things just between them. At the end of the day, however, whenever we communicate, whether by letter, conversation, email, text or facebook, to me it seems important always to ask ourselves, "am I saying this to make myself look better, or am I saying this to benefit and build up someone else?" I know I wish I could always answer to the latter instead of the former. Good article.

Dixie Kid, I'm with you. Isn't Facebook (and all of social media, for that matter) about 'oversharing', as the author put it?
