it's a common perception in the blog circles i run in that 9 out of 10 bloggers are female.
well i'm here to break that myth.
now while it may be true that 9 out of 10 LIFESTYLE bloggers are female there's a massive group of male bloggers out there talking about one thing and one thing only...
go ahead and google your city's name with "sports blog" after it and see what comes up. i bet hundreds of sports obsessed men blogging about the teams that make them cry are what you find.
i'd even confidentially say there are more sports bloggers than female lifestyle bloggers.
this past wednesday night i headed across the street to the map room to meet up with some of my sports blogging guy friends who were meeting up with other sports blogging friends.
(see? they even have their own sports themed meet ups!)
and while i was drinking my wild turkey american honey on the rocks i had a bit of an epiphany.
i decided that male sports bloggers are, until recently to us twenty-something bloggers, an untapped blogging friend resource.
it's a fact in my lifestyle blogging circle that male bloggers tend to get more internet attention than female bloggers because there are less of them.
FACT - don't deny it.
ladies, don't tell me you haven't gotten all starry eyed while reading one of peter dewolf's posts, dreamed about caressing narm's beard, or prayed to the gods to turn ben boudreau straight.
just imagine the inappropriate email and gchat possibilities if we could suddenly increase the male blogger pool. well we can if we count sports bloggers - i think it's brilliant.
sports bloggers, just like us...
but with balls.
