Hey Readers! Thanks for stopping by. Well, I can only assume that you’re wondering who I am and why this blog exists in this tiny little corner of the interwebs, so here goes. I am Shannon, a 34-year-old queer chic. I write for a living, but this blog is personal, and, no, I won’t be making any money off of it. Not because I don’t want to (who doesn’t like money, right?), but because the people who run Google are ridiculously puritan and I don’t want to restrict what I say for fear of losing an ad account because I somehow managed to offend the delicate sensibilities of the Google Gods.
I can’t promise that this blog will survive. I hope it will, of course. I wouldn’t be starting it if I didn’t believe in it. However, as I learned with my now-defunct blog So You Want To Be A Lesbian, almost nothing is forever. I still love that blog. I miss it. But I’ve grown and evolved so much since I started it in 2010 that I don’t even hold most of the opinions I posted on there anymore. That’s okay though- that’s all part of growth. And, with that growth, I outgrew that blog. That’s a great thing, though, because this one was born.
Now that that’s out of the way, I’m sure you’re wondering what you’ll find here. Well…..lots of things, really. When I say that these are “ramblings” in the tagline, I mean it. I have a lot of things that I have a lot of feelings on. I have a lot of potentially unpopular opinions, and I don’t feel like getting crucified or even banned on internet message boards for expressing them. Here, you’ll read about relationships and my feelings on them, LGBT equality, racism, police brutality, feminism, sex, and just about everything else you can think of that might affect or be of interest to a quirky, nerdy, fat, black, atheist, non-monogamous gay chic.
Oh, and just so you know- I welcome comments. I welcome dissent. I’m here to learn and be entertained, too. The only thing I don’t welcome is bigotry of any kind. So, welcome aboard! Hope you enjoy the ride.
