I just realized that I am a day early on this one, but it’s totally worth your time. Check out the Wearing What Wednesday page for four great opportunities to objectify enjoy the male figure.

featured blogroll and link updates

10 08 2009

Two links are part of this week’s featured blogroll:

  • LifeLube – “lube 4 your life”
  • GayHealthBlog.com – “health and wellness information to the LGBT community in a safe, responsible and plain talking way”

I’ve been on a gay health kick lately, and both offer great resources and conversations on the topic.

Two links have been added to the “Local Resources” Tab – Gender Queer Coaltion and Midwest Gender Queer. Both are great projects by local gender activist (and sometimes contributor to QueerCincinnati.com), JAC Stringer.

two year bloggiversary

4 08 2009

Today is the two year anniversary of this blog. I rarely do anything for longer than two years; it’s at this point I usually get bored with my jobs and move onto something else. I suppose that says something.

From the old site, the most popular tags of the last two years and their frequency for those over 50 posts:

  • Barack Obama – 122
  • BLOGGING – 153
  • ELECTION 2008 – 158
  • gay marriage – 157
  • GAY STUFF – 203
  • Hillary Clinton – 53
  • HIV/AIDS – 94
  • OHIO/CINNKY – 158
  • POLITICS – 82
  • PERSONAL – 78
  • POP CULTURE – 72
  • YouTube – 66

I’m sure that says something about my habits, but I can’t quite seem to be able to put my finger on it.

Anywho, here’s to another year!

On a related note, today is also President Obama’s 48th birthday — happy birthday Mr. President!

welcome to the brand new queercincinnati.com!

3 08 2009

After a few weeks of thought, I decided to go ahead and move forward with the upgrade rather than remove the blog all together. Thus, QueerCincinnati.com is back and massively updated.

I received a lot of feedback from a lot of people, and I want to thank everyone for their patience and their amazing thoughts. I won’t go into the depth and breadth of the changes, but I will be shortening some old features, updating a few, and, overall, making your experience here on this blog a better one. Trust.

You will notice, first, that Wearing What Wednesday has been moved from the main blog to its own page. A lot of people who check this site at work had complained that it was hard to scroll through the posts, knowing that half naked men may await them at any point. In order to check in on my favorite hot guys of the week, just click the page above that says “Wearing What Wednesday” and you will be redirected there. My random posts of Broadway music will now fall under its own category — Musicals Monday — also available on its on the above link bar. You can also find links to both pages including previews on the right side of the page. I will also be featuring a new blog every week which can be found on the top right of your screen. This week, we have my oldest and dearest blogging friend, Texas Liberal. I have also added a “local resources” section, mainly due to the amount of people who find this blog by searching “gay Cincinnati” on google. I figure it may be helpful. If you represent an organization or website not currently listed, please email me: queercincinnati@gmail.com.

More updates are coming — I promise to keep you up-to-date on each one.

In order to find the new blog, within a few hours, “www.QueerCincinnati.com” will redirect you here as opposed to the other site. Please update your bookmarks. Additionally, if you have an RSS feed or need the RSS address for your blog, please update the address to “https://queercincinnati.wordpress.com/feed/”. I am really excited to move to WordPress.com. Whereas blogger (the “blogspot” on the old address) was very user-friendly, especially for the novice blogger, WordPress is far more powerful and allows me greater freedom and greater opportunities.

QueerCincinnati.com is always under construction, and I always appreciate your feedback. Please continue. You know how fond I am of critics. I will be adding my contributors in the next few days.

Much love to you all. And welcome to the new queercincinnati.com.

quick note

29 07 2009

Welcome to my visitors! Some of you may have received an e-mail (unexpectedly, on my part) regarding the new URL for QueerCincinnati.com. Please note that this site is still in production and is a testing site for possible changes to the nearly two-year-old site. All posts are experimental; they will remain if this site goes live, but I want to see what the site looks like with information on it rather than just a blank slate.

As of now, nothing is official. Please continue to use “QueerCincinnati.com” or “CincyWestsideQueer.Blogspot.com” for any updates.

Thank you.

A new site? All will be explained in due time.
