Okay admittedly I’m new to this whole personal finance blogging thing (not even a week old! *coughcoughnoob!noob!coughcough*), but I have to say I’m quite surprised at the disparity between the number of males versus females who are blogging about their battles with debt.
Out of every 10 blogs im finding about PF, only 1 is by a dude.
Not that I have anything against gals or anything. Go boobs and brains! (or whichever body part modern empowered women are now celebrating… Hurrah Fallopian tubes! Girls have those right? ;)) But really? Only 1 out of 10 PF bloggers are guys? Surely there are more guys out there having trouble with their finances AND are able to type and use a computer. Or is it just unmanly to advise to the world that you’re slowly drowning in debt? Am I doing an unmanly thing with this blog? *adjusts package and does a loud gas movement* I don’t think I am. I think its brilliant that I’ve come to terms that I have a debt problem and have come up with a solution for it. Its classic man thought process.
- Think of Solution.
- Implement Solution.
- Drink Whiskey.
- Kill Sabretooth Tiger with bare hands
Finding a problem and fixing it is how we deal with the world. Yes, sometimes our fixes are 100% completely and utterly wrong, BUT that doesn’t change the fact that it indeed fixed the problem. It may have caused 17 other problems all interconnected with the so-called “fix”, but the first problem that was bugging us (or was bugging our significant other) has been resolved. Whatever the issue is now is a NEW problem and requires another set of repeated requests to be repaired.*
We men are actually quite simple creatures.
Anyways… where was I? Oh yeah…
It does boggles me that there aren’t more male PF’ers out there. There probably are but I just haven’t found them yet, so if anyone knows of any PF blogs by males that are both an amusing read and regularly updated, please leave a url on the comments.
Now to share the love, here are the two noteworthy male PF bloggers I’ve found.
Unabashed and consistent use of the word “ninja”. LIKE!
A little more serious. A little more wry. And also fat. I like other fat people.
*And for some reason I’m beginning to think I may have stolen this whole rant from somewhere, for the life of me I have no idea where and who. It could be my mother kidding around with my dad. Or an actual comedian . If its from a comedian. I’m REALLY REALLY REALLY sorry. And if I got it from my mom… well its ALMOST like I made it up myself… Right? Right? *sigh* Fine! I’m sorry mom if I stole it from you… *grumble grumble*
