Man Monday moratorium (maybe)

Hi, guys. In case you haven't noticed, we've been without a Man Monday update for the past two weeks. And I've decided that we're now going to be without one (at least, from TMGB) from here on out.

I'm not quite sure what happened. (Actually, I do think I know what might have happened. Check out the P.S. below.)

After a strong start several weeks ago, TMGB (The Male Guest Blogger) disappeared for a couple of weeks (I let it slide, figuring something important must be going on), then reappeared a couple of weeks ago with some lame-o excuse for why he hadn't been submitting. (Something about his email/server being down. But whatevs. There's no way he was not on email for two whole weeks.)

After reappearing for another week or two, he's now disappeared again for another two weeks. So I'm killing the weekly Man Monday feature. (At least, the version where TMGB alone submitted guest blog posts.)

So, I'm looking for feedback from you about what direction to take Man Mondays. Would you like having one specific (guy) guest blogger writing an entry each week (similar to TMGB, but more reliable than he has proven to be)? Or maybe a different guy's perspective each week? Or would you like more write-in stories from guys wanting advice from all of you (similar to In Too Deep's plight)? Something else? Nothing at all? What?!?!

Man, even the cyber men in my life don't come through. That's depressing.

P.S. In the interest of full disclosure, I do have an inkling as to why TMGB disappeared. For whatever reason, his full name appeared on his last submission to me, which I alerted him to. (Prior to that, I only knew his first name.) With his anonymity gone, I think perhaps his balls followed. Which I'm actually sort of pissed about because I was really proud of my lamely executed "Man Monday" visual that I concocted way up there in the right hand corner of this post.

I guess it's a good thing you didn't go out with him....we can't have you dating someone who is that unreliable!

So once you saw his full name...was it someone you knew?

TMGBs actions do not surprise me. Typical guy! What about using Mondays to take questions from your readers (both male and female) for advice? You have a great forum for feedback and after all, there is wisdom in crowds?

Medicated - I know, right?

Sea Level - no, I didn't know him. Two degrees of separation failed me! HA!

Liberty Belle - hmmm... I like the Q&A idea. I'll have to stew on that a bit. (TWSS)

Alexa - LOL. Took me a minute to get it. But I got it. :)

Allison - why am I a rock star? Because I killed Man Mondays? Or because I did internet sleuthing about TMGB?
