Blogging: The new indulgence among women
You think women use Internet only for networking and connecting with friends, think again! Don't underestimate women here... Apart from surfing for music, subscribing to news alerts and e-shopping, net-savvy women are active bloggers also. Deepti Kaul writes.Updated: Mar 05, 2009, 21:40 IST
You think women use Internet only for networking and connecting with friends, think again! Don't underestimate women here...
Ask any new age female what does she do on Internet and you will be surprised by her reply. Be it surfing porn, blogging, or e-banking, they all are up to it. The young writer Advaita Kala, whose book Almost Single is becoming popular among Indian women is a big fan of You Tube, "I look for Obama's speeches as he is one of the greatest orators of our times and also look for the shows that are yet to debut in India,"
"I find e-banking and e-shopping quite boring but I do read news online and have even subscribed to new alerts," she adds.
Apart from surfing for music, subscribing to news alerts and e-shopping, women are active bloggers and don't forget to frequently update their blog pages, says Priya a PR professional, "I am a active blogger and keep pouring my heart in my blogs, people comment on my blogs and I even get hate mails at times, but I think that's the best part of blogging."
Mishty who spends most of her time on Internet says, "I spend around eight hours on Internet and do all kinds of stuff, surf porn and download it, pay my bills for credit cards and mobile. I have even subscribed to different sites that deal with news analyses, like tompaine.com, commondreams.com, irin.org, human rights watch and similar."
Bikes, cameras, laptops- the gadgets which men are supposed to like are surfed by women these days, "I love to see new bike models and have an urge to know about latest cameras so, I often look for them," quips Priya.
Ladies working for websites not only do all the above things but also keep a tab on their competent websites. Kanika Mehta a media professional not only surfs for all kinds of crazy stuff but also markets her yet to open chocolate parlour on web... Hmmm that's something. And you thought when women's mouth doesn't talk their fingers do!
