Now don't get me wrong, they are out there. There are some damn good ones. It's just that dude bloggers are quite the minority in the blogosphere and therefore, finding them is a bit of a task.
Three weeks back, a few of those awesome dude bloggers got together and started Dude Write. It's a blog where other dude bloggers link a post to each week to raise awareness and spread the word that we are out there. While only dudes are allowed to enter, anyone can go there to read these submissions and in the beginning of the week, vote on those posts for those they deem worthy of the coveted, Dude Write Man Card.
Last night, after the dust had settled and the votes tabulated, turns out, top prize went to me?
|because you can never have too many Man Cards!|
As much of an honour this is, I need to also mention the winners of the platinum and gold Man Cards as well. The Six-Fingered Monkey wrote a very entertaining post on the douchbaggery of the instagram app that seems to be ever so popular these days. And winning the gold Man Card, Change The Topic had a post that I loved about a cabin on the lake with a whole lot of memories. But that's not all! There were other Man Cards handed out and other stories to tell. I strongly suggest that you stop over at Dude Write and check out all of the posts. And if you know a dudely blogger who is not aware of this site, encourage him to take a look and enter a submission. Because, after all, it seems that everyone has a chance at that top prize.
.............oh, in case you missed it (and i'm pretty certain you didn't. It's now my most viewed post!) here's the link to diamond Man Card winning post. Dear Middle Son. Thank you to everyone for voting for me. I can't begin to express my gratitude.
