I signed up for a WordPress.com blog just so I could get an API key for YouTube, and that was only because I wanted to post the Ducky Doolittle video. (I’m smitten with Ducky. She makes me go misty.) I felt extremely lucky that my first choice, bisexuality.wordpress.com, was available. In case you hadn’t noticed, this is one of my favorite topics to expound on.
I’ve been meaning to set up a separate blog for just such issues for some time. Too many people think of bisexuality as something kinky or deviant. It’s not. But to get my point across, I need to be able to separate my libidinous subjects from my sexual politics. The more bisexuals that put themselves out into the blogosphere, the more chance we have of reaching those who don’t know much about bisexuality, or who may never have given common misconceptions a second thought. I want more people to see bisexuals as real people, not some ambiguous, faceless facet of homosexuality. When I was a teenager, I would have liked to have such a resource open to me. Struggling with your sexual identity can be very difficult, particularly if you don’t have a starting point.
Right now is probably a bad time to get started on a new project. I’m working on some stories for PixelPulse, and that comes before any posting to my blogs. (By the way, the latest issue is out. You can get it in-world on Second Life.) Work is crazy right now, too, for some reason, and that comes first, period. I gotta eat, ya know. So taking on a new blog might be some extra work, but I don’t care. It’s important to me and if I’m slower at posting both here and there, that’s okay. At least it’s out there. Most likely, I’ll rewrite and post some of my older posts to the bisexuality blog, to give them a home among non-adult content. Come the new year, however, I’ll be in full swing. I can’t wait. : )
