    Hey, read this guy’s blog, it is really boring. And this guy is trying to climb the TTLB Ecosystem by turning his site orange. Fortunately…

  2. I can’t say why women bloggers don’t get more attention. Maybe blogging is a testosterone-charged competition (heh)! That said, most of the blogosphere is libertarian-right, and we do have a clear bias against left-leaning blogs. Part of the way the blogosphere works is that we link to people who tend to agree with, along with a select few “opponents” we deem worthy. In practice, it means that right-wing memes (and blogs) will dominate because they’re given a primary channel.

  3. ” with a select few “opponents” we deem worthy”
    I think that’s got it. I haven’t seen that many ‘lefty’ (as opposed to liberal/libertarian) female blogs whose take on things wasn’t “Oh, I just went home and cried…”.
    I don’t really want to link to people who are going to go home and cry if I disagree with them.

  4. actually, you could just link to TTLB and keep Cowboy Khalid wallowing in obscurity. I was just thinking about counting my blogroll, and I seem to read an inordinate amount of female blogs, so I guess I miss out on most of the bias. Whatever.

    That new color is really … bright! It makes me feel like I’m in Austin (Hook ‘em Horns) ;-)

  5. Regrettably I did provide a link to Cowboy Khalid, but only as an example of the type of blog that would never make my blogroll: a zealot who was backed so far into his political corner that everything he said was suspect. Thankfully, it will fall off when that post hits the archives.

  6. I really haven’t paid that much attention to the male:female ratio, although my sense is that there are more males.

    And clearly there are more right-leaning types, although that impression may be a result of simply personal self-selection in my own blog-hopping!

  7. And indeed on Cowboy Khalid–I just figured that I would be sportsmanlike :)

  8. Good point–and I didn’t mean to suggest that being early automatically equals success. Simply that there is an adavantage to being early in this game, especially if one can be the first (or amongst the first) to carve out a specific niche.

  9. Blogoshere evolution
    No, I didn’t create this post to tell how I finally moved far enough up the evolutionary ladder to finally have legs. I am glad to be a Gecko (as I decline to be a Newt). Actually, I want to…
