Guy Bloggers

Every once in a while, I'll surf over to a blog written by a guy, usually from a link on some blog I like and respect. I am always amazed at the differences between a chick-blog and a dude-blog.
Us gals are, as usual, relationship-oriented. We blog about our friends and families and God and how they all relate. We blog about good food and swap birth stories. We blog about our homes or our dream homes and how we are going to keep them clean and organized. And decorated.
We know who Flylady is and Mrs. Catharine and Candy. We discuss child-rearing. And while we may have our differences, we try really hard not to hurt one another's feelings.

Men, on the other hand like to talk doctrine or lack thereof, dispensationalism, hyper- Calvinism, armenianism and a whole bunch of words that I really don't know.(I go to Church, not Seminary) They are masters of the run-on sentence. They debate and disagree. You know what? They enjoy it! Their feelings don't get hurt when someone disagrees with them!

Now, Biblical doctrine is important to me, but I don't really want to blog about it exclusively. And I believe that all the girl talk we do is important and it is Biblical in that we are encouraging one another in the roles of wife and mother and sister in Christ that we are supposed to be.

Well, I read a while, then I quickly return to my own little blogsphere. I like it here.

You are so right about the men and their blogs. I love to read them though. Although you don't find much humor on their sites do you? I like to throw in a little humor every once in a while. In's about time for me to find something to post that will make someone smile. I'll have to go on the hunt for it. Have a great day!!

LOL, it's true... guys and girls are different. Thank the Lord for our differences, though. I don't think I could handle married life if men were exactly like women. We need a break sometimes... but I do agree with you; I like our little blogosphere, too. :)

Uh-oh, do you think we are living in a blogging bubble? ;o)
