Women Blog About Nothing

I made an off handed comment the other night that I feel way guilty for.*

We were sitting around a table, chit-chatting away about blogs, twitter, and the Internet in general. Someone mentioned that even though it seems like more women than men are blogging, that isn’t the case– men outnumber women bloggers by quite a bit.
Everyone stopped to ponder this little nugget.
Why then, are we so focused on marketing at women via social media of all these men are out there every day touting their expert on the world wide web?
“Because women blog about nothing,” I said.
And then I hated myself for the stereotype I’d just placed on my entire gender. My point was, that men tend to have a blog with a specific topic, if they’re into cars, they redo an old camaro and chronicle it for the world to see, or if they love beer, they try a different one every day for a year and review it on a tumblr account.
They stay single-minded in their blogs, and don’t use them as a multi-purpose catch all the way many women do.
What I should have said was, “Women Blog About Everything.”
That sounds much better, don’t you think?

 

*This probably happens more times than I care to mention.
