Chilean Blog Update: Woman's Talk

There are two very popular 100% womens isues blogs in Chile. Men, fashion, concerns, boyfriends, relations, thoughts, all center on women's interests: Zancadas (ES) and nuestroclubdelulu (ES) . In the last post of Zancadas, Ana Paula Do Brasil wrote about the moment just before we are about to go out at night:

Estoy segura que aquí todas tienen una lista o por lo menos una canción especial para el momento de la “preparación” para el carrete. Son aquellas canciones que, mientras una se maquilla, se viste o va manejando para una fiesta, parecen traer un mensajecito a más, tipo: “hoy incorporo el espíritu Madonna y nadie me hará parar de bailar”, o “finalmente voy a salir a carretear después de tanto tiempo vuelta loca en la pega”, o “por fin una noche onda ‘Sex&The City’ con mis amigas” y por ahi va.

I’m sure that everyone here has a list or al least one special song for the preparation before going out at night. Songs that while we are doing our makeup, dressing, driving for a party, carry a message. Like “Today I take Madonna's spirit and no one will stop my dancing” or “ finally I will go out after all the time I've working like crazy” or “finally a Sex&TheCity night with my friends.”

She continues sharing a list of the songs she has for the moment. Of course, all the comments on this post are from women,.

Another group blog by women and for women is nuestroclubdelulu (ES). “Demand” is the title of the latest post and refers to the limits in a couple's relation. The one befor that was about Boyfriends with children.

As the time passes, it is every day more difficult to find a partner without a past and without responsibilities such as son or daughter.
