Since I have been blogging for almost one whole year I have noticed one very interesting fact. There are way more women who blog about art than there are men! I know there are many, many fantastic male artists, I guess they just don’t feel the need to talk, but rather are content to simply--create.
Some experts think the reason that men are the strong, silent type though has a lot to do with brainpower. Relax girls; no one is saying men are smarter; they just don’t have the capacity for emotions as women. We all knew that right? Their brains are hardwired to think about um, uh shall we say other things?
When my husband and I were dating I would write him long emails professing undying love. He would basically say the same thing in one sentence.
When I give him a greeting card, I pretty much add a long, book length sentiment in addition to the one on the card. When he gives me a card, I had to pull teeth just to get him to write his name.
I guess it’s hard for me to understand, coming from a family of talker’s male and female. So maybe it just has to do with writing it down. Could the reason for husband dear’s (and perhaps other men as well) silence in print be due to the fact that he is a hunt and peck one finger typist? I must admit that using a cell phone keyboard is a bit daunting even to me.
Whatever the case may be, this past birthday, my husband eagerly presented me with a card. When I opened it, he had added an extra sentence. There he stood with a big goofy grin like a three year old waiting for approval. He tries, and you gotta love a man that tries.
How about it, are there any men out there who would like to explain the reason for this unequal amount of art bloggers? Any thoughts from the women?
