Boys Rock Your Girls

Let's see, how can i do this so i get it right? I know!

I was tagged by Lynn over at A Tired Mama as a Rockin' Girl Blogger. I have mixed feelings about this. I enjoy getting tagged and having people say nice things about me. I still find it surprising that people come here to read at all.

On the other hand, i don't like selecting only 5 other blogs as Rockin' Girls because i like all of the blogs i read. Plus, what about Rockin' Boy Bloggers? I think that the majority of bloggers are women, and i wonder sometimes if the men feel left out or ignored.

So, here's what i'm going to do. I am going to select 5 Rockin' Boy Bloggers, because i can change the rules to suit myself, so i am. If i knew how to change that button i would, but that is beyond my technical skills. I tried a bit, but i just bungled it.

So, in no particular order:

1.) Scott from Oregon. Scott tells great stories with a bit of a smart ass edge. His layout is constantly changing so i look forward to visiting so i can see what the look of the day is. Scott would never end a sentence with a preposition like i just did.

2.) Irrelephant. Isn't that a great name? He writes in a gentle and thoughtful way about his life, memories and trains.

3.) Stucco. Stucco is beyond a bit of a smart ass. I like that in a person. His posts carry a sense of his outrage with the craziness of this world. I like that in a blog. And i have met him in person. His wife is a wonderful woman and she loves him. That counts for a lot with me.

4.) Jeremiah. My biggest complaint about this guy is that he doesn't post very often, but when he does the way he writes can give me shivers. His inner landscape is interesting and varied.

5.) Monkey Boy. A man who is not afraid of tears or tenderness, with some much silliness thrown in. Plus he's about to become a daddy.

I would mention Bob at Greens-n-Cornbread, but i mentioned him in my Thinking Blogger post. I would consider tagging Lazy, because of his writing, but he's taken his blog to password protected and i'm too chicken to ask for the password because he's often mean.

So thank you Lynn. I hope it's okay that i switched genders over here.

Just one more example of how you rock...You are definitely not afraid to make things work for you...One of the many things that I admire about you...Now I have some menblogs to go and read;~) Thanks.

Changing the rules totally ups your rock star quotient.

QT said...

New links that come highly recommended are always appreciated.

But don't boys have germs?

Stucco said...

Jeez, I guess I'd better get my act together and post regularly again. :) Thanks for the kind words.

egan said...

Yeah, thanks Meno for the shout out. That was very kind of you. Even better, I live in your 'hood and we've never met. How's that for a guilt trip? Have a nice Friday.

Mrs. Chili said...

I agree - your taking the rules and making them suit you TOTALLY ups your "rock" quotient.

I have to agree, also, with your nomination of Stucco. I haven't met him - or his wife - but I know for sure that I like him.

I know it's not my place, but I'm going to chime in with three of MY favorite boy bloggers (because I love finding new reads online, and I like promoting the good stuff) -, Gerry over at, and Rick at are all very cool, thoughtful, funny, talented men who deserve some readership attention. Go on over and check 'em out.

i think you can give the rocking boy award to chicks and the rockinig girl award to the dudes. i mean, who sets these rules?

and it's nice to bring the boys in the thanks.

Bob said...

ooh - new blogs to read.

I'll take an honorable mention any day. Tanks.

meno said...

lynn, oh good, i'm glad you are okay with this. Happy reading.

patches, thanks! I'm fine with being a rock star, but you really really don't want me to sing.

qt, i think it's cooties. But i have a good anti-cootie cream. :)

stucco, yer welcome. You should only post when you have something to say. So you should probably post twice a day, huh?

egan, hell no, you are just looking for baby sitters!

mrs.chili, it is totally your place! thanks.

jen, at this place i set the rules. Dude!

bob, you're welcome. Have fun.

TTQ said...

Yay! Just in time for weekend blog hopping!

Scott from Oregon said...

I've been placed in the same sentence with Irrelephant and Stucco?


I've made it, baby!

Anonymous said...

Meno! You rock out loud, dear! *huge hug* And don't listen to Scott, he's not had his pills yet.

You know, it really means a lot to be listed up there with those guys, and on your blog. You've got quite a talent, and to be mentioned out in that august It means a lot. Thank you.

Now, let's see if I can get my big ole' swollen up head through the door.

egan said...

Damn, I'm so transparent Meno.

Elliot said...

You are quite the Stevie Ray Vaughn solo yourself there Meno. Thanks for putting me on the list! That'll pull two extra posts a week out of me.

LazyLazyMe said...

Just as soon as I have something to say worth a damn I'll unprotect it.

Often mean?


meno said...

ttq, you will find some good stuff at these places.

scott, this is the pinnacle of your life. It's all downhill from here.

irrelephant, you are welcome. Good luck getting your hat on. :)

egan, as transparent as glass daddy-o.

jeremiah, oh good, my evil plan worked.

lazy, i won't wait until i have something to say worth a damn, or i'd never say anything. And one time you weren't mean. I remember because i wrote it in my diary.
