Advice For Men Bloggers

Now that I have all this extra time on my hands, I decided to make good use of it. I randomly starting viewing profiles. I want to spread my blogger wings, and hopefully make some new friends. I did a search for all bloggers in my state. So this research is limited only to the Tennessee men. To be honest, I am such a homebody that it is difficult for me to make new friends. I rely mostly on my many family members.

Unfortunately, they seem to have their own lives going on. I am looking at profiles of men and women. Women list such interests as writing, sewing, literature, exercise, you know, stuff like that. I discovered something appalling about the men bloggers. They list beer as an interest. I am not kidding. Look for yourself. BEER. B-E-E-R. Fellas, I hate to tell you this, beer is NOT an interest. It is a beverage. A vile and disgusting beverage at that. How can you list that as an interest? Do you sit on your couch and watch the beer can to see what it will do? Do you take long moonlit walks at night with your beer? Maybe you share quiet conversations together. Do you tell the beer all your hopes and dreams? I confess that I love an icy cold glass of Coke. But I can't fathom listing a beverage as an interest. One blogger wanted it to be known that his top interest is beer.

I know I can't speak for all women, but surely some would agree with me that beer is not an interest. I am not hating on beer drinkers. I have had beer before myself. I think it tastes like pee personally. Well, not that I have first hand knowledge of what pee tastes like, that's just what I think of. Pee. With carbonation.

I say this only to help you. I don't think there are any men who are bloggers who read my blog. If by chance, one of you happens upon this here blog, please take my kindly given advice. If you drink beer that is fine and it's your business. Just please, please, don't list it as an interest. This is what it looks like:
Favorite Music: blah, blah, blah
Favorite Books: blah, blah, blah
Interests: hunting, beer, fishing, football.

See, that just doesn't even look right I tell you.

I also found a surprising number of men who list video games as an interest. I am going not to go off on a tirade about that. To each his own I always say. It just surprised me that men my age and older still love video games. Nothing wrong with that. Just a little surprising...........

My 16 year old son always comes out of the video game store saying something like "There was another dude in there who was like 30, buying a game while his mom waited for him. He probably lives in her basement. I am NOT turning into that." I saw a young family at that store yesterday waiting while Daddy bought a game - a mom with two little ones in a stroller. Nice way to spend that discretionary income.

Yeah, beer as an interest? Um...just don't be giving out your phone number.

as far as video games go some guys just never grow up. I don't think it's so much the beer there interested in it's getting drunk, like I said some guys just never grow up.

I agree: beer is a beverage, not an interest. Furthermore, it is not a FLATTERING beverage. I wouldn't say to myself, "You know, I want a man who DRINKS BEER."

I so get what you are saying.

And I am laughing so hard!!!!!

what a hoot! I have always thought that beer smells like horse pee.
I do have to admit I acquired a taste for "good" beer that's really cold when it's really hot, but ice water is better. as for men that blog. Rick is cool over at organized doodles but he's married. You have a great sense of humour. I added you to my favorites list.

Karen-Thanks! I'm not necessarily looking for a man per se, I just couldn't help notice that so many listed beer as an interest. Crazy I tell you.

HW-No ma'm. I will NOT be giving out my number!
