11/09/2005 Entry: ""There are women blogging, they just don't need to be so loud""

I'm almost afraid to blog this:

"CNN: Where are the women bloggers?

"TROTT: I think the women are there. I think what we see is a focus on topics that tend to be more male-dominated, so we don't get as much coverage. Men blog more about politics. Politics are more likely to get picked up by the media. Technology has always been male-dominated. So there's this sort of echo chamber.

"But there's knitting, this family, these topics that have been relegated to being sub-par blogging, which I disagree with completely.

"Seventy-five percent of our users on LiveJournal are female. And on Typepad and Movabletype it's almost a 50/50 split. There are women blogging, they just don't need to be so loud."
Pundits and knitters find common ground in Web logs, CNN, November 3, 2005

There are women blogging, they just don't need to be so loud.

Ms. Trott must lead a very charmed life if she's never been ignored, shoved aside, shouted down, or whatever by a man. I'd salute her serenity if I didn't think its wellspring was merely obtuseness. It's still a big, loud world for most of us.

Stick to your knitting, lady. I also ran into a blog you might be interested on making cute little sandwiches with the crusts cut off. Also, getting your landry whiter than white.
