This whole blogging thing is kind of wierd.
I started doing this as just a way of expressing myself from time to time, and to have a place to write.
Oddly enough, I started reading the blogs of other people, mostly at random, but from time to time I would use the "Blogs of Note" function from Google's blogger website. This is here the story begins.
A few months ago, in an adventurous mood, I saw an interesting blog name at the "Blogs of Note" place. The name of the blog was "Suburban Lesbian", I thought that might be interesting, so I visited this blog and discovered a very nice lady who wrote about her life and her life with her equally nice-sounding partner.
I started to read her blog regularly, and commenting on her entries. She started to visit my fledgling blog and was a great deal of help to me when I got started since I have NO clue when it came to even the most rudimentary aspects of coding. By the way... if I never said thank you, Suzanne, let me do so publicly here.
After I started reading her blog, I started reading her partner's blog, as well as the blogs of some fo their friends. Next thing you know, most of the people that are reading my blog are lesbians, and most of the blogs I read are those of lesbians.
How funny is that?
I wrote an entry about internet friends a while back. In it, I listed my many internet friends that I have known through various online communities. If I were writing that post today, I would have to add several very nice ladies to the list that I have met through the accident of a very random act.
So, a big thank you goes to Suzanne, Wendy, Deb, Sassy, eb, Zanne, and several others who never said: "What are YOU doing here, straight dude?". Thanks for letting me view your community and hear your stories. Most importantly, thanks for making me feel welcome.
What a nice bunch of people.
