The blog-o-sphere has become dimensional, artistic, and visual. I love the art of writing using words to create the pictures of a story but we are now completely visually driven thanks to the internet, Facebook, twitter feeds, and of course blogs. Blogging is super fun when I actually take time to sit down and write. I know as a blog when I browse the internet randomly looking to read or learn about something I am draw toward dynamic content that is visual. I am always in awe of the photos bloggers chose and it coordinates with their blog posts. It seems in order to stay relevant, I find, bloggers must use images with their blog posts. Lets face it no one nowadays has an attention span longer than 2 minutes when it comes to social media content.
As a writer or blogger you have to snag the reader in the first few minutes, detail an inspiration story, list tons of tips or suggestion, be pretty, be funny, be brave – basically you have to be everything for your read. (I add sarcasm for free!) Then you have to create those wonderful visual stimulates that keep your reader engaged. Of course your graphics need to be spectacular and captivating. What can I say? I really love blogging because you can say how you feel and even include some facts as to why you are right. I also love creating relevant motivating content that resonates with my reader and the world. Well enough engaging with you my reader. I wanted to create a blog post to keep you motivated and inspired. When it comes to fining great lesbian blogs I found its a little hard to come by.

About: “Hi, I’m Andrea Hewitt, a late life lesbian who came out in her mid-forties. This is the blog that I wish I had found when I was coming out a few years ago.

About: “One day I realized that of all the style blogs I loved to read, none were written by girls-who-like-girls, let alone very many strong and diverse queer voices. And so, way back in 2008, with a crummy little point-and-shoot camera, a handsome sidekick behind the lens, and great big wishes for a badass femme community, I stepped onto the internet’s ‘infinite scroll’ catwalk to be the change I wished to see in the world. ”
