Sometimes blogging as a man, I wish there was a core set of Man Blogs (Dibs! I’m trademarking that! ) that I could subscribe to. No offense to ANY of you ladies who I follow or who follow me. But just what is the ratio of Male to Female when it comes to blogging for fun? I don’t care to clutter up this post with cold hard facts, so I’m going with a ratio of Less to More.
The problem I have found with following more men is that it can, and for me usually does, end up like this:
Strong opinions get thrown around willy-nilly and before you know it one of the two is getting their butt kicked. Like this poor guy:
Butt-kicking gets really tiring after a while. I don’t want to hang out with jocks, mind you. I want articulate, reasoned thinking men. But those very same qualities can turn around and bite you in the butt.
I guess this is one of those situations where I want to be Alpha Man and every other man to be Beta Man, maybe Beta-Plus occasionally. But another Alpha? Ha, kill that sucker!
This is where what I want simply isn’t possible. One thing I have learned is to really rein in my opinions when commenting on others’ blogs. I have also learned that when I get a desire to be part of a pack, I just need to wait a day or two and then I’m back to my desire for solitude. This is more of a vent than anything else.
So to you guys who I do follow and haven’t fought with, I’d like to thank you. For being patient with me, for letting me air my strong opinions on your blogs without biting my head off. I don’t take it for granted, really.
And to end on slightly more humorous note…
