Barbie and I are both mentioned in this nice little intro about blogging by Deirdre Clemente.
I sure never thought me and Barbie would be mentioned in the same breath about anything...
Wow I didn't realize that 35 of bloggers are women now. Great start.

Blogging. It may sound like a fraternity hazing ritual but these days, everybody is doing it. Disoriented new moms, disgruntled teens, and somewhat sickening thirtysomethings are enthusiastically creating and maintaining weblogs or “blogs” --online journals that feature everything from boyfriend bashing to baby food reviews. Even Barbie has a blog.
Although they’ve been around since the mid-nineties, “blogs” had been reserved for techies and professional writers. In 1999, there were only an estimated 100 blogs in existence; today, the number is around one million. In a traditionally male forum, a whopping 35 percent of these blossoming bloggers are women.
