The Chick Bloggers

I've been blogging for five years now. One of the annoying things about blogging is that there are certain conversations that cycle through the blogosphere. The first time the topic comes up, you and your fellow bloggers and commenters dive into the topic, hash things out and come to some sort of a conclusion. Then some new guys come around a year later and have the same conversation. You roll your eyes, say whatever, and spend more time on Twitter.

A few years back there was a big fight about where the women political bloggers were. Some guys said, "How come those chicks just wanted to talk about their kids and clothes, and didn't want to talk  about real important political stuff"? Then a bunch of women political bloggers said, "shut up. Here I am. You big, sexist asshole."

Fast forward to today. There are very well established women political bloggers. Not as many as the guys, but still enough to shut down any conversation that begins with, "all women bloggers are…." Still, there's no doubt that women bloggers are mostly in the diary/house and home type of blogs. And they're great. Many are beautifully arranged and photographed. Check out Pioneer Women and this list of 20 women bloggers to watch in 2009.

  1. I’m blogging Tim Reiterman’s 1982 book on Jim Jones (Raven: The Untold Story of the Rev. Jim Jones and His People) and I’m already up to post XV, and I’m just over half-way through the book. I’ll taper of, hopefully, once I get to the better-known parts of the story. We’re hoping to show the recent Jonestown documentary soon, so I felt like I needed to know more.
    Once I’m done, I’ll get back to blogging about potty training.

  2. Thanks so much for including our list in this post. We all have different interests as individuals that go far beyond gender. The key is respecting that and not seeing one topic as superior to the other. Each has it’s place.
