Yesterday I wrote about women blogging more than men. As soon as I punched the "publish" button, I began to entertain second thoughts. All day long I questioned many assertions I had made in that post.
So call this a correction post. Or a back pedaling post. Maybe I should look at this as the flip flop post. No, flip flop might not be accurate as I still believe more women blog than men and generally they write cleaner. Of course this is just my opinion. Unsubstantiated by fact or fiction.
Hey, I should run for public office. If I only looked better for those Kodak moments, I might just be a perfect politician. Hmmm. No. Answering carefully without going off half cocked is not my style.
The couple of comments I received on that post confirmed my own reservations about "Manly Bloggers". PJ of Rocky Beach was right in my face and clear how he felt. Jen over to Never a Dull Moment nicely let me know her blog would be considered a "mommy blog" and I got the distinct feeling she was not sure I was right.
Now that I have had 24 hours to mull it over, I have concluded that my opinion is based on my attraction to the women. Their take on the World fascinates me. If only because it differs so much from mine usually. I guess it would be natural for me to seek them out rather than keep my focus on the guy blogs. After all, I pretty much know what makes guys tick. But women, well, they are still a mystery to me even after 56 years on this planet.
Then there is the fact that with all the blogs I have screened, I have most likely only seen a very small portion of what is out there. I could probably look at 1000 different blogs a day for the rest of my life and never see them all.
So I humbly ask for your forgiveness as I step back from words I have previously uttered. I put pen into gear before brain was engaged. I think I was seduced by that picture of the Wrestler with the cool shades.
