Over the past month I have been putting a lot of effort into finally revamping bobbytbd.com. I’ve written countless times over the past year or two about how I have hit a road block when it comes to writing for my blog. I just couldn’t get beyond the surface of things to topics I really felt interested in anymore.
Everything about the blog seemed wrong. While my focus hadn’t really changed, in that I will always be in search of who I am and what makes me, me, I no longer was writing as a reaction to my divorce. I had reclaimed my life, but that also meant changing to look of my blog. If my writing is going to be different then I felt the visual of the site should reflect that.
Unfortunately with the change in my feelings toward the blog I also couldn’t figure out what I wanted to write about anymore. Now, after a month of hard work, I think I have started to make some headway. With a new design I feel as if this blog has become more easily navigable. Visitors can now see that bobbytbd.com isn’t just about me venting about my day. Don’t get me wrong, I realize I do vent a lot here, but it is now more evident at a quick glance that I am trying to do more. Maybe not much more, but more than just journaling about my friend Betty being a mean person.
I want to share an everyday, flamboyantly gay, 28-year-old man’s point of view on ever day life, events and interest. That can range from healthy eating to America’s pathetic obsession with out-of-control celebrities and how my life comes into play… or at least my views.
There is also going to be a section dedicated to my favorite summer obsession, CBS’ Big Brother! I’ve been watching it for years and look forward to it all year-long. It’s such a brilliant show or social experimentation, how could I not analyze it each week?
Now that I have a visual for my website that I think is representative of me and I have started to tackle the wall preventing me from thinking of content and topics to write about I want to tackle something new.
Well, I don’t know why I am acting like it’s a big announcement. I wrote about it the other day. I asked if I should try to tackle YouTube or not. I’ve made the decision that I will, but what should I talk about on my YouTube channel?
I don’t want it to be like every other YouTube channel out there. I don’t want to just be another product reviewer or something lame. I want to bring something to the table that I haven’t already. I want something uniquely me.
Look out later this month for the launch. Topics will range from feminist issues to my views on haters of “sissy gays”.
