The Man Behind Sparkling Footsteps

One piece of feedback I always get on this column is that it’s great to spotlight so many of the ‘silent partners’ behind blogs — that is, the guys (and moms!) who are supportive of bloggers and might not ever be recognized otherwise. In today’s case, this is doubly true. When Lynzy (she of Sparkling Footsteps fame) nominated her husband Ryan, she mentioned that living in Connecticut without a lot of other bloggers around has meant that her husband has been her main photographer and source of in-person support when it comes to all things blogging. She also said that him getting a feature here today would make him “smile from ear to ear.” So Ryan, this one’s for you!

    First, too cute – he’s funny and I like it. Second, your handwritten “the man behind the blog” just confirmed that I need the Wacom Tablet.

    This is so sweet and definitely reminds me of what my husband thinks of my blogging. He too plays video games, while I play and edit and my blog. Love this!

    Great series! It’s so nice to see the support that bloggers get from their family & friends-blogs wouldn’t happen w/o them! : )
