New Blog Website

Dear Readers, as you know I have been blogging here on WordPress for years now, spouting off on everything I have any experience or knowledge of, sometimes good sometimes badly.

I am in the process of constructing a new dot com website, separate from WordPress.  It’s a process, and I am learning how to set it all up.  If you would like to see where I am in the process check here.  As I said, I am learning and I am using eHost to build and host the site.  At this point it all looks good except for the Contact information displayed at the bottom of each page.  I am having trouble changing it from the templated “fake” information, thus you can still contact me by leaving your name and email in the given space, but the addresses and phone numbers shown are NOT mine.  I am working to correct this and may have to get on the phone with someone from eHost to get it fixed as I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do it.  I have put in my info several times but it’s just not changing it.

My first blog there is basically a Welcome blog.  My intention is to have my own dot com space and to blog there about many of the same topics that I blog here about.   I will continue to speak of being Butch in today’s world, of being part of the Butch/femme dynamic, the LGBT community, of being HIV positive, living in Maine and about political happenings that interest me and spark a response.  I also plan to add product reviews, book and movie reviews and feedback such as that.  Hopefully I can keep it current and interesting to my followers.

I hope you will take a moment to check out the new blog page and give me some feedback about what you think, how I can improve it and what you would like to see me write about or do with the page.  Please keep in mind that I am no professional website builder and this IS a learning experience for me, so any constructive criticism and input would be appreciated.

I will be taking blogs from my collection here, honing and editing them and reposting them on the new site as well.  That should be a pretty interesting task all by itself. I also have a plethora of blogs in “draft” status or “private” status on WordPress that I will be sifting through for possible publication on the new site too.  Some have never been published, and some have been published and then moved to a private status for various reasons.

So, this is what I am up to this Christmas weekend.  Other than having the normal Christmas time festivities with my family, doing some baking and hanging out with my buddy here at the house, I will be working to get this site up and running more smoothly.

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a great weekend!  Peace!

I am a pretty relaxed, proud, Butch and a native Mainer who enjoys reading, writing, blogging, vlogging and social interaction. I live in southern Maine, near the coast with my 2 small dogs and I hail from a very large, loving family that is historically rooted here. I write about my life, my experiences, living successfully with HIV, my YouTube experiences, and just about anything that piques my interest. This blog may contain profanity and sexual situations, and is not intended for younger audiences. Read at your own risk. At 54 I see life as just beginning a new chapter, and have decide this is the time that I need to write the stories that got me to this point. I believe we live our lives in chapters, changing, evolving and moving continuously with the times. I love to laugh, have discussions, debates and even the occasional nonsense conversation! I generally enjoy people, but not drama, hatred, ignorance or those who choose to feel they are somehow elite or superior to another simply due to their mere existence. I try to be very conscious of the health of the world around me - environmentally, socially, economically, and ethically. The people who are dear to me know me as having a tough exterior, filled with marshmallow and crunchy peanut butter. I continually strive to be the best I can be, especially to address life head on...always.

  1. The site looks good, but you spelled “bare” the wrong way. In the correct context it’s “bear.” Merry Christmas, too.
