The Internet is a vast place. According to internetlivestats.com, there are now almost one billion websites online (a shade over 970,000,000 at the time of writing). Many of those are focused on men, men’s needs, and men’s interests.

We certainly don’t want to stereotype here at MakeUseOf, but suffice to say that the majority of men’s interests fall into certain broad categories – DIY, cars, fishing, fashion, and so on.

Read on to see our list of what we believe to be the twenty one best websites for men The 7 Websites Every Man Should Be Reading The 7 Websites Every Man Should Be Reading Read More (ladies, who knows, you might find something of interest here too!)

This is possibly the most stereotypical category for men. We’ve had a fascination with automobiles since Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot built the first working self-propelled mechanical vehicle 1770 and Karl Benz built the first motor car in 1885.

    Thank you for a really good laugh. As much as I appreciate your including my blog, 66 Square Feet in your list, I am not a man, but...wait for it...a WOMAN. (As even the briefest of visits to 66 Square Feet would reveal).

    Should be called 21 best websites for the metrosexual rich man. Only a couple of these sites are even enjoyable for the average man and they are sports related. I went to Werd and was greeted with a $10k music box. $10k? My car costs that much. How the hell can I afford a music box that expensive?

    Fashion sites? I don't know a single MAN that gives a rat's ass what stores think is fashionable. And once again the prices are for people that make more than I, or anyone I know could dream of paying. $200 for a shirt? That's 10 shirts in my closet. This reminds me of reading Maxim or my wife's Cosmo. They think everyone is making $150k. The vast majority of Americans make less than $50k. Where's our Kohl's fashion.

    DIY and Instructibles are great sites for the guy who has a spare lathe or table saw/drill laying around; ie: few of us. It is still neat to see you can make that at home, if only you had the money and time.

    Enough of a rant. Get in touch with the everyday man. We are not all New Yorkers or Californians. Some of us dress in khakis and a polo everyday.
