A long time ago when I first started blogging I used to follow someone who would make a daily post identifying the new things he was discovering out there on the internet. He’d compile it all into one post and call it “Sharing the Goodness”. Usually with some catchy, awesome title to draw in his (mostly female) readership. I always loved that concept, sharing the things that interested us whether they be kinky, geeky, sexy, raunchy or just plain beautiful. So here is my contribution to the Goodness for one day. This may become a semi-regular feature on this blog. We’ll see.
- First is a local blogger that I only discovered today named QueerRadical who won the Westword award for best activist blog. Only one day into the posts and I’m impressed. I like the queer-friendly advice that is given and the intelligent look at books, politics and media.
- I was quite pleased to find this website today called 25 Things about My Sexuality which is a fascinating read. It may take me a while to get through all these different posts, but so far I love the candidness of the revelations. Gotta say there is some freedom in anonymity and yet, a lot of those posts are so similar to what I would say about my sexuality. Shows we have more in common than we might think in both our heartbreaks and our triumphs.
- The folks over at Cracked.com never fail to entertain. This article about 5 Ridiculous Sex Myths from History (you probably believe) is fucking priceless. Not just because it’s entertaining, but because it’s illuminating about the arrogance of later generations to think we are the most sexual of history.
- A great event for a great cause, check out the Build-a-Bear fundraiser hosted by the Denver boys of Leather. Something about hot men in leather with cuddly bears that makes me all gooey and happy.
- Lately I’ve been dismayed by the number of people who have been treating relationships with disdain and cynicism (in fact, I’ve been so disillusioned by cynics that I’ve added them to the limit list). But I love this view of marriage brought to us by Neale Donald Walsch (author of Conversations with God). Yes, I am an unabashed fan of Mr. Walsch and his vision for humanity, but I was honestly moved to tears by this particular writing, which encourages us to view marriage and/or long-term commitment in a relationship as an act of witnessing for that person.It’s about having someone there to witness our full selves, our story, our ups and downs and to affirm our value and existence. That is what my marriages are about…and something I hope to share with you.
And I can’t say that I’ll be posting these things very often. I’m finding it difficult to use the WordPress dashboard and would welcome any different tool for blogging that might be available.
