Very recently, I realised that I was reading barely a couple of blogs by men! And then I realised, that there are hardly any men reading my blog. Or at least commenting here. Except for a very few. How is that? Do men not feel welcome here?
The answer could be in the question – why don’t I read any men’s blogs? I used to, till they all became very irregular. Like UsP’s. And the Quirky Indian’s, and Rambunctious WhipperSnapper among a couple of others. But obviously, I can’t start reading blogs to correct the gender imbalance in my blog roll.
On the other hand, while I know I bring a feminist point of view to a lot of things, do I write essentialy feminine stuff that men can’t relate to? I talk about myself a great deal here, but that shouldn’t make men wary of this blog now. And if it does, that thought is so offensive to the woman in me! I also talk a great deal about society, and other vague stuff that’s not necessarily classified into masculine/feminine categories. So why is it that men don’t make their presence felt too often around here?
However, I do see quite a few of the male species on the Followers’ list. So, will the men out there, please stand up?
To the women, I’d like to ask – is blogging something women take to more than men? If yes, then what is it about blogging that appeals more to a woman’s sensibilities?
