The Lesbian Blogger Experience

by the lesfriendly girl

I was a lesbian first, a blogger next. But that’s because I’ve always been a lesbian. Since I was born, even.

I was a blogger when the social networking Multiply got famous. I first started posting personal blogs, then eventually what people would call “spam” – advertisements for events, sales and what-have-you for my lesbians organizations: Lunduyan ng Sining and GALANG (Gay and Lesbian Activist Network for Gender Equality).

And then came the idea of blogging specifically for a lesbian target audience and setting up a separate site for it.

I can say that Rainbow Bloggers inspired me – I saw them at the 2008 TFP Pride March stage and I had the most selfish motive to be up there with them (the selfishness has gone now that I’m a Rainbow Blogger *cough*). So I set up lesfriendly.com - my blog that talks about anything lesbian that pops into my mind.

Anyway, fast forward to now, being a lesbian blogger has its perks. Due to the rarity of public Philippine lesbian blogs (separate from the personal blogs of the lezzies), I get a lot of special requests for posts (mostly ridiculous), I am now the victim of spam, and moderating my blog has become increasingly time-consuming each day.

I can understand now how people become professional bloggers. Its addicting and financially rewarding if we lay our cards right. You get special perks and access to events and first dibs on news and updates about the community.

Sounds appealing? Don’t get carried away just yet. Running a quality blog needs at least a couple of hours a day of updating the site, making sure its spam-free, answering emails, and, of course, doing research to post entries. Most people just don’t have the time. Heck, even I am guilty of going by a week without posting anything.

But the rewards are worth it. Just reading the comments on my blog, no matter how mundane, makes me smile as I think about all the lesbians out there who are probably picking up a thing or two from my posts.

This lesbian Twilight post garnered a lot of comments... and controversy


So ultimately, do I see myself being a professional blogger and just quitting my stressful, full-time advertising job? Lets wait and see. Actually, its up to you, the readers, to determine.

It really is about increasing visibility. Well done is all I can say for starting your own site. The more sites we can get up for lesbians, the better our visibility

Lesbian Movie List is my small contribution.

Gets about a thousand visits a day. Most of them using proxies although there is no porn on the site.

Shows how many people are still in the closet out there

Mga parausang lumang sinehan

NAG DESISYON na ang Korte Suprema na labag sa Konstitusyon ang ordinansa na nagbabawal ng short time sa mga motel sa siyudad ng Maynila.

Wala na ring balak pa umanong maghain ng apela si mayor Alfredo Lim sa naturang desisyon.

Nagbabala naman si Lim na handa niyang ipasara ang anumang motel sa lungsod ng Maynila sakaling may makita sila na pinapayagan na magpapasok ng mga estudyante para magshort time.
Pero, teka, ito talaga ang pakay ko, ang mga lumang sinehan sa Metro Manila.

Taong 2005, balak ko na itong iparating sa dati kong boss na Kongresista, ang patuloy na pamamayagpag ng mga lumang sinehan sa Maynila. Subalit, may tila tinik sa aking lalamunan na nakabara. Tila, wala akong boses sa tuwing ako ay maghahanda sa aking mga sasabihin. Tila, nakagapos ang aking mga kamay para isulat ang mga hakbang na dapat kong irekomenda para masulosyunan na ito.

Alam ko, ikaw ay pamilyar ukol sa mga lumang sinehan sa buong Kamaynilaan.

Sa unang pasok ko sa ganitong sinehan, ako ay tuwang tuwa. Napan…

PILIPINAS, TUNAY NGA BANG MALAYA NA?

NGAYON ANG IKA 111st NA ANIBERSARYO NG ARAW NG KALAYAAN NG PILIPINAS. Ngunit, sa paglipas ng isang daan at labing isang taon, tunay nga ba tayong malaya na?

May mga pagkakataong gusto kong isipin na hindi na tayo nakagapos sa mga bansang banyaga dahil nagkaroon na tayo ng kalayaan sa pamamalakad ng gobyerno. Ngunit, ano ang kalagayan ng mga Pilipino ngayon? Mayroon na nga ba siyang dangal na matatawag? Taas noo na nga ba ang bawat Pilipino kahit kanino?

Sa mga nakalipas na araw, samu’t saring problema ang dinaranas ng ating bansa. Mga problemang lalong nagpapalugmok ng bawat mamamayan. Mga problemang animo’y walang katapusan. Paano babangon ang isang Juan dela Cruz kung mismong mga namumuno sa ating bayan ang nagbabangayan? Paano tayo makakalaya kong mismong mga halal ng bayan ang siyang nanguna upang itali ang bawat mahihirap na pinoy sa kanilang pamamahala?Paano na ang walang tigil na pagbulusok ng presyo ng mga pangunahing bilihin? Ang walang humpay na pagtaas ng gasolina. Paano pa m…
