Women Bloggers: A Survey

S U R v E Y
Hattie over at MotherPie is doing graduate study on New Media. She needs our help with original research she is conducting on U.S. women blogs and bloggers, and also the sub-set of mom blogs.

Because she separates women with children from women without children, she will inadvertently have some interesting statistics for childfree women bloggers too. (Caveat: we don't know if any of these gals intend to have kids or if they have even given it any thought!)

She invites
Purple WomenTM to take her survey. It took me less than 10 minutes.

interesting survey...she asked for opionions re: "mommy bloggers" and if in fact we were a "mommy blogger"

The readership here can pretty much guess that I'm not. I added that "mommy blogs" are pretty much the same..."Myrakle used the big potty today!!!!!OMG" and were therefore lacking in originality.

I'm just sayin'....

We bond over our issues, tidbits, advice, and share laughs and conversation just as they do -- just with a different focus.

Bottom line, I think mommy bloggers and non-mom bloggers overlook the fact that we really have something BIG in common -- we're bloggers after all. I feel like I could actually have an entire conversation with a Mom Blogger without her mentioning her kid.

This was my "take away" from the BlogHer Conference in July 2006.

Didn't know you went to the BlogHer conference...I didn't make it. I am finding that a lot of female blogs are writing with a slant of some type...

Is this a need of females to identify ourselves beyond women? Is this a culture response to how we are typed?

I just wonder.

Mother Pie - I am not qualified to answer that question,...

"Is this a need of females to identify ourselves beyond women? Is this a culture response to how we are typed?",

...but, I am intrigued by it. I wish I could call Naomi Wolfe and engage her on the topic. Or, invite her to dinner with a group of my friends...

I would further ask, are there more women bloggers than men? How do men establish identity? Don't our hobbies identify us? Who you are has so much to do with how you spend your time and with whom. Actions over words in the end.
