This is an interesting factoid I picked up somewhere recently on the interwebs:
THERE ARE OVER 1500 BLOGS THAT FEATURE PICTURES OF GIRLS ON BIKES.
From what I can tell a lot guys come cruising by my blog hoping to see a brand new fresh picture of a pretty girl on a bike. So I took things in hand and came up with a list. Why am I sharing such a list? I want to make it simple for said guys to go off on their way to what it is they are really looking for.
Now this list of sites is aimed specifically for the male (voyeur) audience.
Warning to the non-voyeur: some of these sites contain a rather nice mix of images, while others like to feature soft porn, with no artistic merit or fashionable aspect and preferring instead to show off nearly 'nekid girls on bikes'. Oh, I also want to note here that most of my pretty girl photos end up on these sites anyways... (annoyingly my images are often swiped, and not credited).
Long ago I figured out that a portion of my readership were guys with something else on their minds other than the promoting of a bicycle (primarily for us girls) lifestyle, along with the bicycle advocacy, and the girly, fashion stuff I am always blogging about. I got a clue that this was the way it is way back when I ran a post and a poll to try to suss this out.
Let’s cut to the chase...The List:
Girls on Bicycles!
Chicks and Bikes
*plus way too many more to list now because the list keeps just growing and growing
Now if I can just get back to blogging about things I like; all things vintage, dream bicycles, romantic notions, bicycle tips for girls, fashion, and all things that generally lend themselves to living a fabulous bicycle lifestyle! And don't get me wrong; I LOVE my male readership, and very precisely the ones that 'get' it :)
p.s. this is as close to a rant as I come! You will not find me doing long posts complaining about all the ranty kinds of topics you may come across on other blogs ... such as the rude behavior of motorists or other cyclists, or the typical, rehashed cycle wars and issues that are so very popular elsewhere. In essence my glass is always half full and I like to promote that kind of attitude in this blog
