And by ‘this one’ I mean the community of people who read and comment on this blog, and who write the blogs I have newly discovered, which are represented in my blogroll. I feel very grateful and privileged to be included among you. I appreciate your thoughtful posts and comments. This is a group of smart, funny, thoughtful and supportive people.
Like many of you, I discovered this community after I’d discovered Sugarbutch. I found Sinclair’s blog not long ago and decided right away I wanted to read everything, starting at the beginning. As I read more and more, I could really relate to much of what Sinclair was writing about, his triumphs, his struggles. I was also inspired by the smut, having done a little private smut writing myself, I became more and more excited about the idea of finding a wider audience. From that starting point, I discovered many other wonderful blogs written by butch and femme identified people. I felt a sense of recognition and relief. Very much the case of finding something I was looking for even though I didn’t realize I was looking. And I was really psyched about getting to know everyone better and telling my story.
Special thanks goes to those who encouraged and advised me as I was conceiving this blog: Sinclair, Leo, Greg, Bren Ryder. I’d also like to thank those of you who have welcomed me into their blogrolls and twitter lives, thanks, everso.
