I think what I love most about this new blog is its obscurity. It has renewed my desire to blog again. I can write about anything I want to write about, which these days, is mostly my love of cats and my love of God.
My last blog averaged 1700 readers a day. This blog averages 15! I don’t know who’s reading this blog, but the last blog was read by a lot of people I personally knew, from good friends to ex-friends, lovers to ex-lovers, colleagues, family, friends of family members, and then a bunch of unknown fans of my erotic fiction from all over the world. The more personally I knew the people, the less inclined I felt to really be free with my blog post topics as time went on. I got really tired of certain people looking over my shoulder, but look, they did.
I actually fell in love with a man that I met through my blog. For 4 solid years, he was the center of my universe. But since this past March, we couldn’t be further apart. Ideologically, we really shifted away from each other. He loved my cats, but not my ministry. He couldn’t understand it at all and treated me like I was out of my mind.
Nothing endears me more to a man than to have him treat me like I’m nuts… Especially when it has to do with something as fundamental to me as my beliefs about the nature of reality. Well, on we go.
Even though it was really jarring to have GoDaddy discontinue supporting my blog software so suddenly after 7 solid years, and then have my RedRoom blog go under the following week, after 7 years, as well, it is nevertheless refreshing to be starting anew; to attract new eyes, new readers, new energy.
At the end of this year, my ministry will officially launch, and then my primary blogging will shift over to that website, and the other blogs connected to that. It will mostly be video talks with me, and podcasts — not a whole lot of blogging. Overall, I guess it is all about change. This year has been kind of amazing in that regard. From my writing projects to my ministry. I find that a lot is up in the air now, but it’s all GOOD. Good, good, stuff going on these days, gang. I could not be more at peace.
Hope you are having a peaceful Saturday, wherever you are, folks! I leave you with a shot of Francis. Francis is a veritable wild beast, trapped in a tiny body. She was the most unadoptable kitten you ever saw. She was definitely one of the kittens that I was told to have euthanized; that she was never going to be tame, never going to be adoptable, so i should just go ahead and have her killed. But here it is a year later and she’s having a wonderful life. We make do. Joyfully.
