Male or Female Instructables, which are more looked at? Answered

I need to know if I should cater more to male or female viewers?  I think more men are on this website than females but I was woundering if anyone could tell me the truth.  I would also like to know the adv age of people on this web site so I can cater to those ages better???  Thanks Denae :)

WOW! Thanks! You are good! I felt like more men were on here but the ladys seem to be catching up. I think the steampunk thing is catching on here also. So I will try to create some women and more men stuff but also mostly Steampunk stuff I guess. Thanks for you help once again! :)

With the anonymity of avatars and random user-names, it's often hard to discern a member's gender.

Bear in mind, too, that by attempting to "cater" (as you put it) to the larger demographic, you are perpetuating the lopsidedness!

I hope that's not aimed at me!

Remember how confusing Adrian was?

No, no (sorry; that would have been better as a toplevel reply; the cough was just referencing Adrian. ;)

(Although I did recently meet a girl named Adrian... :P )

I'm not really sure if you should cater to a certain demographic, or follow trends just for popularity or views.

Just keep making awesome things, like the cake you already posted, and things you care deeply about. I know it may not seem like it, but viewers can tell when passion was put into a project, and they become popular because of the care and dedication of the project.

Even if you don't receive too many views on your projects, take pride in a job well done, and a product that people will appreciate.
