no, you do NOT have to give back your man card

i think it's funny that women are the majority of bloggers out there. i didn't say SURPRISING, as of course we are gonna be all about sharing our deepest feelings and "putting things out there" for other women to flock to us to give comfort and words of encouragement. but there ARE some men bloggers out there, trying to pioneer and forge the way ahead for later male bloggers the world over who will thank them-----like THIS DUDE . AND THIS DUDE . AND THIS DUDE, AND THIS DUDE (who used to have a blog all his own, but now co-writes with the wife). we need to support these founding fathers and open them with arms outstretched into this scary, scary female-dominated universe!! nothing inappropriate, of course, but we can extend the blogging hand of friendship to friends young and old, male or female, friends of warren jeffs or not (okay, maybe only on the NOT).


i happen to know for a FACT that i have at LEAST 20 men who read my blog on a daily to thrice weekly basis. i don't make them admit it out loud (for fear i'll make them cry) because, as my brother-in-law's brother so aptly described it, "yes. i do read your blog. now do i have to give my "man card back?" i loved that so.


so, men--no man card burning or a lowered-status on your masculinity chart is required when reading this blog!! show yourselves and join this elite group of very masculine males who read my blog daily:

P.S. I can't wait for you to see Tiffany's pics from winning your Giveaway, you will LOL! They are so funny!

Amen! I actually think a lot of men are jealous and really do want to have their own blog. (like this one guy I married...) He'll never admit it though!

Mindi,
Where on earth do you find all this stuff. Seriously, you need to write a book. Your blog is so entertaining.

Shayne said...

I hope the answer is not that while most of the blogging is taking place (during the day) that all the men are out working in the fields. It is like that age old question, why don't men do more housework or ironing?

Jori said...

Crap I don't have any male readers. I better start including a little porn.

Tiburon said...

How do they make their bodies move like that?!

My hubby blogs :)

Mindi said...

yes, shayne--it's mos def because you manly men are toiling hard and providing a living for us so that we women have the luxury of sitting around at home blogging (and i am DEAD serious when i say that!!!!)--we get some crap jobs too, they days when being the mom really "blows", but i am always glad that i get to stay home and he goes to work. but he doesn't use the "i'm waaaaaaayyy too busy to read your blog at work" excuse anymore--he's been busted.

I was a mom once for a few days and it was pretty easy:

Well, I better get back to work. I'll check back in at 8:39

Tanja said...

Not sure why...my honey says he's to busy to blog! What, and I 'm not?

I think I need that picture on my sidebar-it's HOT!

Christie said...

Some of my favorite blogs are written by men - I just don't think that the majority of them have the need to "vent" like us women do. BTW - I'm loving the guys in the pic.

My friend's husband, Mike ( www.sheshopsalot.blogspot.com) is the funniest guy in the world...so naturally his blog is pretty hilarious too! He is on a brief ( I hope) break from the blog, but I know she will shop again and he will have to write out his therapy. I can only imagine if my man put his sense of humor in a blog... I think it would be full of changed lyrics and dirty limericks.

Angie said...

I'm SICK!! Just SICK!! Sick to my stomach that Mike is bowing out of blogging!! Does he not realize we need a "mike" fix at least once a week? Everyone needs to head over to his site and comment to keep him alive!!! www.sheshopsalot.blogspot.com!! I'm utterly sick!!

I'm so proud of you for adding this entry!! YOu're the bomb!

Becky, yep said...

Michael said...

The only reason a man would blog is because it sounds dirty.
