Pleasure and Pain on Blog Talk Radio

Blog Talk RadioBlogWorld ExpoHuge thanks goes to Liz for alerting me to the fact that Pleasure and Pain, in particular the post I Am Not A Woman Blogger, was mentioned briefly on BlogWorld Expo’s show on Blog Talk Radio yesterday.

Tim Turner and Rick (?) hosted yesterday’s edition of BlogWorld Radio with guests Laura Fitton a.k.a. Pistachio, Lucretia Pruit a.k.a. Geek Mommy, and Erin Kotecki Vest a.k.a. Queen of Spain.

You can hear the full recording of yesterday’s show. Go to timestamp 40:00 to hear the mention of Pleasure and Pain.

Just a snippet here:

I wanted to bring this up today…Twitter related. Um, there was a post after BlogHer. And it’s Pleasure and Pain blog. And I’m sorry I don’t have the blogger’s name. But the post was, “I am Not A Woman Blogger.” And it kind of started this whole debate about, I guess, identity blogging…BlogHer was a big part of that event. I’m curious how you feel about that. Do you consider yourself “women bloggers”? How does that whole gender identity work for you guys?”

It feels great to have spurred some debate. Liz told me that there was even more discussion going on in the chat room, but unfortunately I don’t think there’s a log of that. If you were there and participated in the conversation, please let me know!

    I think it’s fantastic your blog was mentioned because your points inspired quite a discussion in comments and twitter. The more I think about it, the more I realize I feel somewhat pressured to join woman-centric organizations to enhance my career. Personally, I’ve never felt like being a woman held me back and so joining other women for networking and education seemed unnecessary. I want to talk to others in my field, not just women. I want to join a professional “persons” group and being a usability analyst without being a “woman usability analyst”.

    The more I thought about it, the more I began to wonder… are there groups for men in female-dominated roles? How do they feel about this?
