Interesting. I wonder if the variation is a regional thing? As I said, I played 12 bar blues literally hours a day, jamming with different people, when I was a kid. For me, I noticed the pattern I mentioned was the most commonly followed in our crowd.

For you two, it was with the forth in the second bar to break up the monotony of the one. I wonder if it has anything to do with musical preferences or if it is a learned, regional thing.

I'm with DuckBoy and the IV in the second. That`s pretty common. But, yeah, so is patchouly`s. There are lots of 8 and (fewer) 16 bar structures, too. Lots of variations to keep you busy.

That's fine.
12-bars is usually the first thing people learn when learning jazz/blues, and the like, so it`s understandable to make variations and to stop liking it as much.

Oh, nothing wrong with it. I've played the 12 bar blues so much that I can no longer stand it. I`ve played every single version you can possibly play. I was just commenting that your version, while perfectly acceptable, is not the standard 12 bar blues.
