Do Men Blog Better? What Separates Men From Women?

I came across an interesting post on one of the blogs I frequent. It posed the question, Do Women Blog better? what separates women from men in blogging.

First I kind of thought, wow that's a bit sexist. Then after reading I got the idea. Men and women have different characters and different natures. So it’s conceivable one could use that to ones advantage.

But then there are also some stereo types that we apply to each other that could be used as a point in blogging. e.g. Women talk a lot so they should be able to blog a lot. 

The post in question is Do Women Blog Better? What separates women from men in blogging? over at We Blog Better. You should read it.

Anyway, I thought I would defend us guys. Here are my thoughts as to why men Blog Better

  • Men blog better because they talk less -  Don’t waffle on and on. Remember less is more. Belabouring the point only brings boredom to your readers.
  • Men blog better because they are more practical – I like practicality. I don’t like pie in the sky, ifs and maybes. Stick to the facts. Write about what people need. Give them answers to your questions.
  • Men blog better because they keep their emotions in check – Emotions are a good thing for your blog. But there is a point when it becomes too much. Pour your emotion into your posts. But don’t make it so mushy that the point is completely missed. Blog with emotion, but also keep those emotions in check.
  • Men blog better because they network well – Often times our emotions can stop us from networking with important people. Networking is so important for your blog. Build up that community. Don’t worry if they are your competitor, or nemesis. Network with people. Get them involved in your blog.
  • Men blog better because they answer the questions directly -  Readers want answers. They have questions and the place to answer them is on your blog. Don’t theorise, stick to the facts. Don’t go off on a tangent. Answer the question, meet your readers needs and move on.
  • Men Blog better because they are more original - They dismiss fads, or popularity, or conformity. Many do their own thing, regardless as to the consequences. To have your blog succeed it has to be original. It has to be new, it has to be fresh.
  • Men blog better because they mean business—No matter what the topic, they tend to be more action and results oriented in their blog posts. Create “Calls to action”. Make your point in no uncertain terms. readers like to be told exactly what to do. They want instructions. How do I fix this, how to I do that.
  • Men blog better because they aren’t afraid of controversy – Controversy, when done correctly, can often bring more traffic, get more comments and solicit more responses than the emotional type blog. Admittedly it can go very badly wrong. So beware.

So do men blog better than women?

In my honest opinion, I don’t think so. What I do think is that both men and women are different. Therefore they blog differently. Both men and women have good quality points that can be used to their advantage.

What do you think, Do men blog better than women?
