We’re a rare breed of bloggers, otherwise known as the male population.
Until I indulged into an array of Twitter chats, I wasn’t aware of how little male blogging makes up the blogging world.
Some say it’s on the rise, others say it’s a myth. What do I think?
I don’t think there’s enough opportunity for male bloggers to shine.
We make our own destiny as a blogger, but without inclusion and acceptance, the opportunity continues to be slim.
I challenge ways through situations I experience, and without the acceptance of male bloggers wanting their voice heard, gender inequality will continue to be at the forefront of my bug bearers.
I don’t want to be waiting around to hear the topics of my favourite chats to see it’s about your favourite make up or any kind of topic fixated around the female population.
It’s ignorant and makes me feel excluded.
Try turning chats focusing on beauty to ‘how do you prepare for the day?’ or ‘what do you wear on a night out?’. Words speak a lot about inclusion and just by flipping the way we word topics and questions, inclusion can be part of the blogging world.
I’m sure this is the case much wider than male bloggers and it’s a step we need to take to make everyone feel welcome.
It’s hard to please everyone, but isn’t it worth trying?
