Behind The Scenes

I know that y’all know what I do, obviously. I do fun stuff to our house and write about it and you all get to hear about it.  But what you don’t hear about probably often enough is what goes on behind the scenes, and HOW I am actually able to write about everything and have it disperse on the www. I just felt in my spirit today to give a little recognition to the guy who actually makes that all possible…

Mr. Handsome Techy Guy. Otherwise known as my husband Randy.

I am fortunate because I get to talk to y’all daily and communicate through y’alls comments and such and you can tell me how much you love or hate something. But the guy who operates my blog behind the scenes and does all of that not fun stuff should be praised too don’t you think? It’s not easy, and especially not easy for him when I am panicking that something isn’t working properly. But he always gets it done. And life can resume then.

He is the one who built my blog 3 1/2 years ago, and designed it. I had the same design for 3 years up until we gave it a makeover a few months ago. So he’s a huge part of Decorchick! too and I want us all to see how important he is. After all, I just write the posts and do my photos. Everything else he does and I’d be lost without him.

Have y’all ever thought about how these blogs run and how it happens? It’s pretty crazy! Code this, html this, openhook that, SEO mumbo jumbo…I could go on.

So, this one’s for you babe. We love you and all that YOU do to make me look good.

And p.s.-Wouldn’t he make a great “Heisenberg” a/k/a Walter White? I think I’ll get him a black Fedora and put his glasses on and he’ll be set what do you think?

  1. That is so sweet and yes he does deserve some recognition! I do all the behind things on my site and it’s not easy so he gets a big thumbs up from me! You both are awesome :)

  2. So awesome that you Hubby helps with all that! A dream to have someone around who can do all that. My head just spins when I get into all that, It’d be nice to have someone else who knows what they’re doing around! Mad props to your Hubby!

  3. Wow! You are a lucky gal! Every blogger could use a behind-the-scenes blog and design guy! He does a good job.

  4. Thanks Randy for all you do so Emily can endulge us! Emily, great idea to call him into the spotlight. Many of us have men that are behind the scenes who take the kids, cook dinner, and support us in our blogging endeavors. Hats off to all the men that help make it happen!

  5. Randy deserves BIG HUGS from all of us. He makes it possible for you to share your wonderful DIY experiences, of which I have used many.

    Thanks to both of you.

  6. LOL…love the Heisenburg idea.

    And how thoughtful of you to give your husband recognition.

    Love the Walter White idea, Breaking Bad is my favorite show!

    Just discovered you yesterday, my husband and I just recently bought our first home and there is so much I want to do! “A never ending project” I actually found you because I plan on doing my laundry room coral and turquoise and I came across your site! Thanks for all the great ideas :)

  8. last week i had a new countertop installed in my kitchen. much to my surprise, i read about Formica 180FX in one of your articles, and i must tell you what a great product it is and it is the finishing touch to my kitchen. i hope more people will try it.

    It’s really sweet to give open recognition to your husband, I know he does it out of love for you and your interests but I’m sure he feels much appreciated, especially now. Kudos to you both for the wonderful job you both do!!

  10. You are lucky to have a helper near by!! I’m the techie in my family. I designed the look-n-feel of my blog and tweaked code to do a little extra. My hubbie saw my blog then proceeded to volunteer me to create a website for his car club! It can be very frustrating sometimes when things quit working and you have no idea why! Hats off to your adorable hubby for keeping your amazing blog up and running.

  11. Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem together with your
    site in web explorer, may check this? IE still is the
    marketplace leader and a big portion of people will miss your
    wonderful writing due to this problem.
