Women of the blogging community, what say you?

Writer Chick, over on Writer Chick Talks, has tapped some of her female acquaintances to examine their perceptions and attitudes about women bloggers. I felt honored to have been included in the survey, although I don’t think I contributed anything particularly insightful or unique.

In the first of several posts, WC gives a little background on each of the participants. They are a diverse, accomplished group of women and I look forward to exploring their blogs. Their bios have added faces and personalities to the inevitably stark list of sidebar links.

I’m looking forward to seeing what these bloggers have to say about about gender bias in the blogosphere (I hate that word. Frankly, I think blog and blogger are ugly words too).

    I’m afraid “blog” and “blogger” are too firmly entrenched to be changed now.😦

  2. Having read your post and Writer Chick’s post, my interest is truly piqued. I’ve added both of your blogs to my RSS fed and can’t wait to see how each bloggess responds.

    Hi, PG, and welcome! I added you to my reader a little while ago (and I’m honored to have been added to yours). I couldn’t bear the thought of missing any more of your wonderful graphics and posts. I’m still chuckling over the Vanity Fair McCain cover. 🙂

    Hi hi, Dar. Welcome to my … er … web site. Always nice to see a fellow … umm … author … writer … webster(?) person. 🙂

  4. Hey thanks for popping in at my blog.

    I’m not a real fan of the terms “blog or blogger” either. Although I have to admit, I feel a little “cool” when I tell people that I blog, LOL.

    Hehe, me too. 😎 Besides, it sounds better than admitting “I play video games.” Of course, then I have to explain why I’m not telling them where my blog is.
