Two Fit Chicks

Shauna (aka Dietgirl) and Carla (aka Mizfit) released episode 11 of their “Two Fit Chicks and a Microphone” healthy-living podcast today. The episode title is “Let’s Hear It For The Boys”, the topic being men in blogland and why there seems to be less men than women participating in fitness / healthy living blogs.

I was honoured to be asked by Shauna to contribute, and if you listen you’ll hear me as well as “the other Andrew“. I think I sound like a bit of a dweeb, but I always think that when I hear my own recorded voice. Anyway, go listen (to all the episodes, not just this one), they are lovely ladies and their podcasts are fun and informative listening!

One of the questions they asked us was about the gender mix of our blog readerships. Being the IT nerd that I am, I had to actually work it out. You may be interested to know that my blog commenters are split almost exactly 50/50 male and female. However, 72% of the comments are from the ladies, and 8 of my top 10 commenters are ladies.

I got up early today and headed in for another swim. It was really busy this morning. Lots more people, and a lane closed for lessons. I hopped in the “leisure lane” (two lanes with no middle divider for walkers and people mucking around in the water) and it turned out to be a pretty good option, with only one other swimmer and a couple of walkers. I pottered up and down one edge pretty much uninterrupted. Again, my usual 2km swim in about 55 minutes.

    you sounded great and still cracking up at the wanker comment. i’m not sure if the US listeners will understand but it’s always good to expand your vocabulary!

    Haven’t listened to that podcast before – must give it a whirl. Congrats to you and the other Andrew on the invite.

    I was surprised to see you have about 50/50 on your readers. I don’t think I have many males at all that read mine. It is probably 80/20.

    Grats on being featured on the podcast!
