Excuses Excuses...

I've been a bit of a bad blogger lately. But I promise, I do care about this little space of mine. I suppose I have a few reasons for why I've been away from here lately.

1) I'm kinda boring. I've been doing a whole lot of nothing lately, so I haven't been very inspired or annoyed by anything. Which is part of the reason I haven't posted anything lately.

2) I've been distracted by other things on 'the internet'. My latest new distraction is Twitter. I still have no idea what I'm doing with an account there but I have one so I'm trying to use it. And I'm also on other sites/online community thingamabob's. Mostly I'm just trying to spread awareness and share my experiences with other Trans people and their families and friends.

3) When I started this blog I didn't think I would ever get any 'followers'. I was just frustrated and overwhelmed by the real world and I needed a place to get away from everything and I turned to 'the internet'. I didn't think anyone that saw this space would take a second look and I was comfortable with that. And I purposely didn't share anything about my gender. Mostly because I didn't want to make this a 'Trans' or 'Queer' Blog. And, well, I kinda freaked a little when I was pretty much talking about my gender issues almost every post and I had actual people reading them

Now that I've been away for a while, I realize how much I missed this space, and that, this is a 'personal Blog' and I am going through transition. I guess it's only natural I write about what's happening with me. And through all the other places I keep a presence on the web, I've realized how much people appreciate someone sharing their experiences. Letting them know they aren't the only one going through what they're going through or that other people are dealing with things too and that it's okay to be socially awkward or queer or whatever.

So I'm going to try and keep my presence here up, just to let people know - It's pretty great to be yourself...whoever that is!
