There’s been lots of posting about the inability of bloggers to make any real money. Dan Lyons, aka Fake Steve Jobs, wrote eloquently about how all his notoriety didn’t turn into blog bucks.

Both Dave Winer and Josh Cantone have good posts on their differing views (and experiences), the bottom line n their posts being that the attention and chance to be heard lead to opportunities in their own right.

However, reading Lyon’s post also made me wonder how much this is a male/female thing. Are more women making more money from blogging (I am thinking of dooce, maggie mason, queen of spain Erin Vest) than many guys are? 

Oe is it a topic thing?  Does tech blogging pay less than mommy blogging, political blogging or shopping tips?

Or is it that women–who I have a feeling are naturally more multi-taskers, typically juggling several endeavors–expect to earn less from blogging, so they don’t get as disillusioned?

What do you think?
