A reading review

By way of the suggestions of Lynette, I thought it wise to take a concious look at my blog reader, and see what ethnicity and sex the authors of the blogs I subscribe to are.
I figured I would be sadly disappointed to find it dominated by white males, but it’s actually 50-50 in both sex and white/not-white.

That didn’t include my friends blogs (people I know personally) but after further research, those are split about 50-50 too.

I think it would be wise to lean a little more heavily away from white male dominated influences, so I’m going to try and still think through that a little.

I think I’m going to take a few picks from Lynette’s great list of female bloggers

  1. thanks for your comments on my blog. and thanks for being an active feminist. šŸ™‚ as for me, i could do more to diversify my blogroll in terms of ethnicity. i’m going to have to get to work on that.

  2. Lynnette, and anyone else interested in diversifying, I would highly highly recommend http://racialicious.com/ as your starting point for blogs and info on ethnicity related topics. It’s a great site “about the intersection of race and pop culture. ” Check it out a little and you’ll find not only interesting topics, but reading through the topics will connect you with a number of bloggers you’d be interested in reading more from.

    hope that helps.
