What are your favorite man blogs?
Sometimes, the blogosphere can seem like a pretty feminine place. That's just a perception, of course, because there are tons of male bloggers. In my case, I think it's because I've connected with groups like Christian Women Online who are, of course, well...women.
But as I check my own personal blogroll, I see that there are some men on there. And today I added two more guys who aren't political or theological bloggers--just funny guys who happen to have wives who are also bloggers. They are Big Doofus and Honey, I Fed the Kids (don't you love that name for a blog?)
I thought I would enumerate some of my favorite man-blogs here. Please let me know about others that you really like, in my comments section...or put yourself forward if you are a man-blogger!
My usual disclaimer: as with any blog, my mention doesn't mean I personally endorse and/or approve of everything they say in their blogs.
Here we go, in no particular order:
Whirled View with Dan Burrell--Dan is a pastor (albeit in between churches right now) who has some interesting and insightful thoughts on a variety of issues.
Reflections in Life--Randy is a former co-worker of mine who has an appealing, thoughtful writing style and blogs about all kinds of things.
The Seventh Sola--Joel is another former colleague of mine, whose writing is intelligent, incisive and often humorous.
PyroManiacs--You may not agree with this primarily theological team-blog, but it's doubtful that you'll be bored.
The Journey--Rodney is a Christian radio announcer in Australia who blogs about a variety of things.
The Evangelical Outpost--There's a reason Joe Carter's blog has a massive readership. He never fails to be interesting and timely.
UPDATE (later this same day): Well, I just found out that one of my favorite blogs is back in business! Purgatorio is the creation of a guy (yes, he is a Christian) named Marc Heinrich. He calls it "a panoply of evangelical eccentricities, un-orthodox oddities & christian cultural curiosities," but you just have to see it. Purgatorio took a very extended blogging break, and I didn't know he was back until just today. My very favorite features are the "Divine Vinyl" posts.
Some others worth mentioning:
--I love the sense of humor of I Drank What?, but sadly, he doesn't blog very regularly
--Malcolm's Pop Culture Dish is interesting and entertaining
--John of Least Signficant Bits is humorous, entertaining, and takes some great pictures
Let me know if there are others I should add to my list!
