Welcome to the New Year and the New Blog

I started blogging many years ago. Most of my blogs would start off well, but then fizzle over a couple of months. I kept starting new blogs, though, because I knew that I had a voice and a vision to share. Last year, this all changed and I find myself trying to outdo myself in the new year.

Last year, Mike Martinez contacted me about contributing to Queer Oakland. He wanted me to take the reins and run the blog like a pack of wild dogs. While I never got the full pack going, I did manage to get some puppies out there. Over the year I had good weeks and bad weeks with Queer Oakland, but in the end I found myself being a better communicator. For this, I would like to thank Mike even as the doors were closed on Queer Oakland.

I also spent much of last year working on Back to Me and Queer Landia. In hindsight, I wish I would have focused more attention on these two as ultimately, they are the tools for my vision in the coming year. Queer Landia gives me a place to share my moderate views on politics, queerdom and many other topics. I look forward to seeing where this blog will go this year. Back to Me gave me a place to share my random thoughts and appreciation for sexy men and humor. This year this will expand as my blog grows. Continue reading

The Good, The Bad and The New

The old year is gone and the new year is under way. This new year brings some bad news, some good news and something new. I will start off with the bad news, since many of my faithful readers already know this. As of mid-December, Queer Oakland has been shut down. For a variety of reasons, this was the best decision for all of us involved. I will miss Queer Oakland, but I was never able to get the spark built into a fire.

The good news is that I will have more time for this blog as well as Queer Landia. Trying to manage my blog, Queer Oakland and continue to contribute to Queer Landia was draining me. Each of the blogs had a different focus which was pulling me into to too many different directions. Focusing on two blogs will help me to bring better posts (and more posts, oddly enough) to you. I hope you stick around to see the new.

And the new. Wait. Did I actually tell y’all about the new? Crap. I didn’t mean to. That was supposed to be a surprise. Well, I guess the cat is out of the bag, but I won’t give you much. I will tell you that words have more meaning than just their definitions. I will also tell you that I am really excited (and considering buying a tablet to help with this “new”).
