I found my blogger account. It’s amazing isn’t it? And now that I’ve found it, I’ve decided to delete it. When I started it, I was looking for a space other than LiveJournal to post my thoughts. LiveJournal had become dangerous for me because it had been used to out to me to my work colleagues. That in itself wouldn’t have been bad except for the fact that I had a job that depended on maintaining an austere, unassailable reputation. And well, I was not as unassailable as I thought. So I tried out a new home. Found it to be not as accessible as I wanted it to be and have thus landed here in WordPress land.
So, here is the initial post from that Blogger attempt (March 2007). I called myself the Love Priestess…which is still a title that works for me and I may use it from time to time here.
Welcome back, Bella
You know, I’m not a fan of this space all that much. Blogspot used to be just a place I could read about sex, politics, sex, news, sex, parenting, sex, philosphy, relationships and oh yes, sex. It was a nice little place for me to be without causing too much of a ruckus.
Not so much anymore. There are people who look in on you from time to time, see if there’s anything they can use against you. See whether you’re perverted enough to post something real. See whether you’re sick enough to enjoy seeing a naked body now and then or even wrap your eyes around a tasty piece of erotica. And oh please, let’s not forget that they absolutely must know if you’ve ever had a dirty though to put into words. It’s dangerous.
So, I’ve decided that this space contains whatever it is it going to contain.
I’m a real live woman.
A lover of many.
A connosieur of the the deviant abundance out there.
Yes, I enjoy sex. So should you.
Yes, I have a brain that can analyze social and political problems.
Yes, I read and am captivated by the expression of self through words.
No, I’m not sick.
No, I’m not perverted.
No, I’m not here to corrupt your children…in fact, I don’t want your children anywhere near this space..
I’m just here. And I’m going to say what I’m going to say. And if that makes me dangerous…well, then that is a badge I will proudly wear.
A dangerous beauty.
