Guys in Blogland

In the few months that I’ve been blogging, I’ve discovered so many wonderful sites and bloggers out there. I love reading about what’s going on in your lives, your opinions about current events, and taking in the artistry that many of you showcase in photographs, arts and crafts, etc.

Most of the blogs I read happen to be penned by women. Nature of the beast I guess – similar interests attract similar readers. But as I travel deeper into blogland, I have landed upon a collection of blogs by male counterparts, many that have a fun take on preppy style, tradition, the South – all things I love. I really get a kick out of reading these, especially from a male point of view.

So, I’d like to give a shout-out to the guys among us who are producing really cool and entertaining commentary each day. If you haven’t come across them, check out a few of these blogs:

1001 Rules for My Unborn Son – Great advice from fathers to sons, many of which Mom can be proud of; cool pics, commentary and songs woven throughout.

A Continuous Lean – According to blog founder Michael Williams, this site chronicles “American things, good looking things, well designed things and all sorts of other things. Sometimes A Continuous Lean even talks about people and ideas. That’s it, keep it simple. More good, less bad.” Gotta love a description like that.

The Trad – Commentary on culture, style, and all things the “trad” man should strive toward.

The Social Primer – “Manners, Conversation, Style and Handling Your Liquor.” About says it all, doesn’t it?

Stuff White People Like – This one is a favorite, having been featured in the New York Times, on NPR and other traditional media, and has been developed into a book (what all bloggers hope to attain!). It’s a satiric commentary on what white people, or should I say a certain type of white person (You know who he's talking about - the well educated, liberal, eco-conscious posers who want to look and talk the part, but it's only lip service) that oozes with sarcastic musings. Funny stuff.

This is just a handful of the many great blogs out there written by our brothers in blogland. So, from your sister-blogger, cheers to you guys for your contributions!
