MyBlogLog and the advantages of being a girl

I’m a sucker for a pretty face. I can’t help it. So when I’m exploring MyBlogLog and I see a pretty face I click on it. It’s just instinct. Inevitably I will go and check out their blog. I’m interested in what pretty girls have to say. I’m a guy, it’s genetic.
Everyone has seen similar behaviour in the real world. Ever worked in an office with a attractive girl who wasn’t particular good at her job? Notice how quickly the guys would come to her aid and pick up the slack? Guy’s gravitate towards beauty. And girls will take advantage of it. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
What I find amusing is the amount of profiles on MyBlogLog that tack on a girls face just to get some exposure. I suppose it works too. Not that long ago Shoemoney and Marketing Pilgrim faced off to see who could get more members to join their community. Shoemoney had a picture of one of his employees Nicole on his page, and Marketing Pilgrim was giving away a free Zune to a random member. Shoemoney looks to have won that one, but considering it was a Zune that was being given away I’d say it’s a little inconclusive.
It’s easy to spot when someones trying to get some traffic. If their picture looks like a centrefold model or their blog is about seo, marketing, money making, etc then chances are they are baiting. But guys will keep clicking on those pretty faces.
What I’d love to know is if the reverse is true. Do the ladies see an attractive guy and go check out his page? Probably not.
