Well, now it’s December, which means November’s over, which means NaBloPoMo is finished. I wasn’t completely successful at posting every day, but then again, this month I suffered a nasty back injury (I’m much better now, thanks, but it wasn’t fun at all), and a death in Boi L’s family that had the triad flying off to a funeral unexpectedly, on top of school and travel for speaking gigs and judging MLT and working and attending Laura Antoniou and Midori’s fabulous weekend-long Passionate Bonds D/s protocol intensive. So I forgive myself.
Thanks to all of you who joined me for the endeavour – this month was a record-breaker in terms of the number of hits on this here blog. When I started blogging in early 2006, I never would I have imagined so many of you would end up stopping by. I am honoured to have you here and grateful for all your thought-provoking input. Do, please, keep it coming. And congrats to all the Queer Canada Blogs folks who managed to pull it off, as well as those who made commendable efforts. Yay for queer Canadian bloggers!
Somewhere amid all the craziness, I managed to squeeze in a couple of interviews with Dr. Dick of Dr. Dick’s Sex Advice in Seattle. He just posted the podcast of the first one – tune in here if you’re interested. It was a fun conversation about kink, terminology, the leather title circuit and more. Next week it’ll be about polyamory and other good stuff, and I’ll post that link when it’s up too.
What with the end of semester and three big term papers to write, I’m not sure how often I’ll be posting in the next month. On the other hand, my term papers are going to be about 1) the philosophical question of whether or not it can be ethical to use images of real-life violence for erotic stimulation, 2) a close analysis of an primary source in Canadian leatherdyke history, probably a complete set of old dyke porn mags from Vancouver that I managed to score while I was at Canadian Mayhem in May, and 3) what Audre Lorde’s “Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as Power” might have to say about the topic of dyke sadomasochism. So it’s not like there’s any lack of brain fodder in there which could potentially serve as blog material. You’ll be the first to know!
In the meantime, good luck with the impending holiday madness.
