There are a couple of blogs I follow. As a general rule I try to not follow too many because there are so many by friends and others of great interest. If I read all of them I would never get anything else done. But, one that I follow and one guy I admire is Craig’s Gay Word. Craig describes himself as follows: “I’m an openly gay Georgetown student, leadership fanatic, devoted athlete, philosophy enthusiast, and carboholic who is writing to prove that it doesn’t just get better… it gets great!” I love his positive message. He doesn’t write often but when he does its great.
Another that I’ve just recently discovered but have not checked out in detail yet is The Transpiration of Andrew. On his About Me page he describes himself as: “I’m 17, a high school senior, a varsity swimmer and captain, active in church, have a bunch of great friends, I’m awful at writing specifically grammar, and I like a bunch of weird things . Oh and I’m gay. Although being gay is a single defining feature of who I am I don’t think people should just identify me as the gay guy. Thats why with this blog I wanna show you that I’m that swimmer guy or I’m that guy that is super sarcastic.”
A Guy Named Al is another new discovery. His description of himself: “I’m a normal teenager with dreams of becoming a professional filmmaker. Applying to college, hanging out with friends, dealing with nagging parents, and playing Skyrim for hours at a time are part of my everyday life. I’m also struggling to come out to the people I love most. This blog will narrate what’s going on in my life, and hopefully help me grow stronger and accept who I am.”
Another I like is Sam I Am: Being a Guy, Being Gay, Being a Teen, Being Me. Sam describes himself as: “’I’m Samuel, but my friends call me Sam. Nice to meet you. 17, male, junior in high school, athlete, swimmer, eater, writer…. you get where I’m coming from. This blog will be mostly my opinions on a lot of topics, especially ones relating to being an adolescent, being gay, and finding self-worth. I think I’m learning that the only way you can move forward and be happy in life is to just be honest…and be yourself.” Amen Sam! Go forth and be yourself! You’re the only one who can do the job!
There are many, many more. If you know of one, send me the info and I’ll add it to the list.
