Hi. My Name is Brandon, and I'm a Dude.

I like to consider myself a Dude.  And by Dude, I am using this chart of manliness:

A man is a:
(sorted by rank, from highest to lowest)

Dude
Guy
Bro
   (bro having sub-categories of 'Broseph' and 'Bromeo' and so on)
Jerk
Asshole

Dude being the highest rank a man can achieve (other than Navy SEAL), I consider myself among the elite.  A dude is a consummate gentleman around the ladies.  He gets the door, gets the check, and gets the recognition (whereas a 'bro' gets tazed).  A dude also enjoys his guy time, and often can be found in herds at local sports bars.

I do not engage in 'bromances.'

I am not a 'brony.'

I do not put my 'bros' before any type of 'hoes.'  In fact, I don't refer to women as 'hoes' at all...

I am a dude, tried and true.

Because of my dude-osity, I have joined Dude Write, where I can dwell with my kind.




Dude Write


It's where a dude can be a dude, and we all come to claim our slice of the blogging world.  After all, blogging is mostly a women's game (BlogHer, anyone?) and we need to stay together in order to stay strong.

No no no no no....
Dude Write is for dudes, and not bros.  While bros have their own websites to mull about and give each other tips, we dudes hone our writing craft and share useful advice to one another.

We also reward the greatest among the ranks.  AND THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN!

Dude Write has weekly lineups where all the dudes submit posts.  It can be a recent post or an 'oldie but goodie' but you submit what you want to share with your fellow dudes.

Gentlemen, this is a great place to network and show off your writing style.

LADIES and Gentlemen, this is a great place to view and vote on the best weekly submissions by the dudes.

For example, you can vote Monday and Tuesday on this week's lineup which can be found here.  You can vote 3 times on Monday and 3 times on Tuesday.  On Wednesdays, the best of the best are featured and rewarded with virtual 'Man Cards' (to match the ones in our wallets).

(and of course, this is where the shameless pandering comes in...)

With that said, I need your votes!  My submission is marked as #11 #12 #14 on this week's lineup (eh, just look for 'MOPI'), and is about my iPad/Fleshlight contraption.  Yes, it's pushing the envelope as far as non-pornographic, but if that isn't a dude-centric post, I don't know what is...

Go vote!  Show a dude some love!
Please Share it! :)

Oh seriously. Thank you thank you thank you from all of the chicks out there who are sick of hearing about douchey bros.
Can't wait to see your work on DudeWrite!

Out of Barnes said...

Dude, that post about the iPad and the flesh light was not one of your best posts. I thought one from your book was a lot better.

and I always thought you were a Seal. I'm so gutted!

I keep forgetting to sign up for this. I really need to. Till then, I'm off to help a fellow Dude in need of a vote.

Zombie said...

Dude! I gotta get in on this Dude Write.

Brandon Lostinidaho said...

@OoB: No, it wasn't my best, but DW has been deciding whether or not to only allow 'new' submissions or OK'ing archived posts. While they debate, I've just been sending new stuff, just in case...

NellieVaughn said...

Okay, but do I get a date with the winner?

Brandon Lostinidaho said...

I'm sure that can be arranged...

...however, there are multiple winners each week, so if you're not careful, this date can easily turn into a gangbang...

Pish Posh said...

Yay for Dude Write! I totally support the Dudes!!

Crack You Whip said...

I'm off to vote! Whoop whoop!

I think Dude Write is a great idea, especially if it encourages male bloggers to step outside the box and venture into perhaps unfamiliar writing territory. For instance--I read Ken's winning (Diamond Man Card) entry about his middle son this morning, and was impressed because it was such a quality piece of writing.

I suspect there will be a good number of blogger dudes who'll be discovered as being truly skilled writers because of this collaborative site.

I look forward to reading your entries and wish you good luck, Brandon! :D

I love that only a DUDE site would have it be a competition that required there to be a winner. Still, it's a great site and I've already voted! :)

Lady Estrogen said...

Sweet! The pen.IS quite a mighty tool, indeed...

Cool idea, I shall make the journey - unlike SOME PEOPLE that aren't coming to NYC ;/

Youngman Brown said...

We are so glad you are a part of it!

Thank, Q said...

Dude, sounds pretty cool. I'll have to go over there and check things out! It's about time someone showed us dudes some love.

Hey Monkey Butt said...

Ok dude, I'll vote for you!

Mooner Johnson said...

Brandini. Dude.
