When I started this blog, it was a way for me to openly and unabashedly talk about my own issues, of being transgender. I wanted to work out for myself what that meant, what it didn’t mean and where I was going. My first post indicated I was going to be non-transitioning, out of fear of losing my wife, my job and family. I didn’t know what to call myself or even what to name my blog. Let’s face it, “Right Brain, Wrong Body” is problematic. Sure, I felt that way, dysphoria can definitely make me feel like it’s not my body. But it is my body, it’s not wrong there are just some things to fix. I love myself, for the first time in my entire life I don’t hate me.
So, I think it is time for a change. I’m not sure how yet, or what, but I think that as I have changed, it is now time to create a new blog that is more open, more inclusive to my other pursuits and interests. I still want to talk about my personal story as a transgender woman, but I also want to talk about transgender issues on a larger scale, intersectional feminism, geeky things, politics, my family and their issues. I want this to be more than about one part of me, because it has focused on this single aspect for so long now.
I’m still not monetizing my site, I’m not trying to build a brand or anything. I wouldn’t know how and I don’t care. What I care about is what I want to write about. I want a place to be honest and truthful, heartfelt and without guile. So, in the coming months, as I have no idea what I am doing, I will be either changing this blog or making an entirely new blog (to which this url will redirect).
If this is a bad idea, this is the time to let me know.
