ack! (2 Points of Clarification)

April 12, 2007

1.   I should specify that this whole identity-forsaking saga thing, while not easily pinned to a particular instant in time, took place roughly two years before I fell in love with Mr. DM.  Otherwise, readers might think, “Well duh!  Of course your gay identity took a hit, because you fell for a guy!”  But it didn’t work that way at all.  While I wrestled with these issues, I was not aware of any significant bisexual potential.  I fully expected to live and die single, celibate, and totally same-sex attracted.  Renouncing gay identity with that sort of life outlook seems to me a very different matter than suddenly falling in love in a way you hadn’t quite planned for.

So interesting that now we have met, now I hear your humor in your posts.

Uh, for those who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting me, and therefore may not be hearing the (evidently inadequately conveyed) humor in my posts…it may help enhance your DM experience if you realize that I don’t take myself all that seriously.  Granted, I’m no comedian, and this blog isn’t meant to be slapstick hilarious anyway.  But you should know that when I write this stuff, most of the time I have a wryly amused smile on my face.  


Personal Note / metablog / advice?

December 20, 2006

Sorry about my scarcity lately.  Life is very good but also very full.  I’m still trying to figure out where blogging fits in my life.   I’m a lot busier now than I was when I started, and I don’t do busy particularly well.  Any pointers regarding time management, particularly as it applies to blogging (or writing more generally, I suppose) would be greatly appreciated.

I enjoy doing this blog, but there are a lot of other things I enjoy, competing for my attention.  I think doing this blog *could* be something of value, especially if I worked a little harder and a lot more consistently at it, but there are lots of other important and valuable things on my plate right now.   So I’m trying to sort all that out.

Just so you know that despite all the apparent indicators, I still care.   And as I’ve said before, I have ideas for posts coming out my ears.  It’s just finding the time to turn them into reality that’s the problem.  It doesn’t help that I write at a snail’s pace.  Sigh.
