I love that feeling. I'm always looking for it and I'll take it from who's ever giving it out. But that doesn't mean that from time to time, I can't feel that curious little tingle, when I wasn't even expecting it. Over this last weekend, I had the opportunity to meet up with a hand full of bloggers from right here in Phoenix (and the rest of the Valley). Queer bloggers too; or queer enough anyways. We where brought together by Stacy Jay Cavalier (doesn't that just roll off your tongue?) for a story he's writing for ECHO magazine on LGBT bloggers. And man, I had a blast. Within two hours time, I'd virtually met the kids, made inappropriate jokes about a reported shooting at a downtown gay bar and almost set up a face massage train. Almost.
I mean either way these people were just cool. But it was nice that, we were all brought together, because we all like to do what you and I are doing right now. Blogiterating. I felt like, I don't know, I was in Oprah's book club or the red hat ladies or something. I just felt like, yeah these people get me. Anyways I'm following their blogs now and I wanted to share them with you.
Lonnie is boy who, go figure, I actually already knew from working the coffee and tapas scene in Phoenix. You know how when you see another boy who is, well you know, and you just, know? Well, I'm not going to lie, just by looking at him, I wouldn't guess he was a blogger. His blog is fun and fresh and its actually where I pulled the photo for this post from. He was doing a little live blogging. You can keep up with him at lonnietapia.com.
Jen and T are a super loving couple, with three kids, who represent one blog between the both of them. We couldn't pull these girls apart. They blog about hippy ass shit that I am totally fascinated by, but I'm trying to hard to be a city boy to allow myself to dabble in right now. So, I've been enjoying hippying out vicariously through them. You can learn about organic, locally grown veggies and stuff and how to make chicken coops by reading their blog, appropriately called Two Queer Hippies.
