Mena Trott on knitblogging

Mena, one of the co-founders of Six Apart (creators of Movable Type, the blogging software that allows you to read what I write here) weighs in on knitblogging in this article I just spotted on CNN.com.

From the article:

Knitting blogs are a huge phenomenon. I find it fascinating because knitting and sewing are things that have historically drawn women — and now men, too — together in groups to talk about their families, talk about their lives, talk about society. And they would use sewing and knitting and quilting as this way of getting together. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that knitting is one of the things that drives a lot of people to Web logging and to online communities.

She goes on to say that political blogs (mostly written by men) get more attention, but that women bloggers “don’t have to be so loud.” What do you think about that?
