Do Boys Blog?
Do boys blog? I just spent the last hour desperately searching for a male friend with a blog. No luck. All girls. I'm feeling something between panic and shame. You know that microsecond when someone begins to open the unlocked bathroom door while you're stranded on the toilet? That's me right now, except there won't be a quick door slam in the seconds following. Here I am with my pants down.
I had no idea it was a violation of masculinity to divulge deep emotional angst for the world to see. Wait a second, I did know that. Crap. I guess I'm the only one to blame for my verbal diarreah. I should have locked the door.
Hold the phone, I just found two guy friends with blogs! No wait, their last posts were in July and October respectively... of 2008! I'm already posting once a day. I'm embarrassed.
What do I do? Should I slink back to the appropriate semi-annual male posting schedule? It feels a little late for that. My blog plunge has been more of a cliff-dive than an ankle-wade.
Can I shamelessly power ahead? That seems a little awkward, especially considering the lack of male support. Who else could appreciate potty imagery? C'mon men, expose yourselves! Blogging is what cool people do.
