Not surprising, a recent survey of 2630 US adults found that 62 percent of gay men and lesbians love to watch alternative programming on cable. Also 66 percent of gays and lesbians love to go online and 27 percent of GLB adults blog.
While we are not fond of music magazines and their web sits, we really like to blog. 28 percent responding blog either frequently or occasionally. Since this survey was taken last year, I am guessing that even more gay men are blogging than ever before.
Why do we blog? First off, it gives us the freedom and the platform to express ourselves, even expose our loves, hates, fears, etc. It gives us a forum where we can meet like minded individuals who share common interests and desires. It teaches us discipline. We can do this in a sitting position. Some of us bare our souls and ourselves in a way we couldn't do face to face in conversation.
For some of us, it is a liberating feeling. For others, it is a place to brag about our exploits, to gossip, to share information and news, to get our points across.
Whatever it is for you, I appreciate your acceptance of me and my blog into this vast online community of proud and gay men. It is here that we can make a difference, have some fun, get to know one another. We can exchange WOOFS and even cruise. It is fun and it is meaningful.
Let me know why you got started blogging. I have met a lot of really cool guyz blogging. You are the men who shape public opinion today. Thanks for sharing your lives with me. You are the best.
