A more sensible one to conclude with.
Mine is a bit low at the moment. I published my blog address at another site and there was this huge numbers of hits, but all on one day. The next day it returned to absolute normal. I guess they did not like what they read and did not return. My probably boring life did not interest them at all. I did not think that I would have a permanent blog. I thought I would run out of stuff to say. But still I go on.
The ever wise R picked up on something recently. That is the way people in the lift in our building relate to us as two guys, as against to an obviously straight male/female couple. Bury the head in the sand Andrew never notices this. Well he does at times, but chooses to ignore it.
How much of this is our personalities and how much of it is becasue we are a gay couple, I am not sure. But I am sure that when people see that a blogger is gay, then they just automatically close. I could be a bit more discreet I suppose and let readers work it out over a period of time, but why? Getting older is not all bad. You care a lot less about what people think.
