Part one of a multi-part post
A lifelong friend of the family Nancy Lukas among many others thought I should write a book because I have a story to tell; among other things that have been suggested…..
Since I don’t think anyone would buy it….The book that is 🙂 And I tend to have a giving nature I’m writing but I’m also giving…………
With a new place or direction in life comes many changes and challenges. Those can range from a simple hair or nail polish change; all the way to a completely new place and state of being. When I started getting a idea for a personal website I thought, and actually did, do one that was borderline adult in nature. Of course I also considered and launched blogs that where just focused on my faith, my photography, my cooking, and other aspects of me. After letting the hosting expire on those I kept by my side a little notebook (pen and paper type) and as they came to me wrote down or crossed off ideas. These ranged everything from how I wanted it to look, content I wanted to feature, issues, etc…
When it came time to register and draw-up a plan for this new site, the one you’re reading on, I started to take the time to look at various other sisters sites and designs. I optited with the theme from Caitlyn Jenner’s site called Ashe Pro. As you can see the color scheme and flexibility of it is very breathtaking. I also looked at the site of Jennifer Boylan and I wanted to stay closer to the old school direct layout approach. Granted I don’t have the luxuries of being able to afford a high-end web designer, along with everything else. So I’m doing this, along with many other things, on my own. I say doing it on my own in the aspect that I am not putting those who have made international fame and fortune down… Instead if anything I’m building them up. I say building them up because they did it on their own… And as a result have inspired others to do their own thing.
When I first launched this site over a week ago all I had was the basic template information provided by the theme and Word Press; so things were still a mess. There will be many updates and changes along with content made to this site over the next few weeks, days and who know even years… For life is a ever changing cycle and journey.
Some of the plans I have for here are:
- A support column where users can log into and just vent without being judged and bullied like they are on social media.
- A faith resource center where those who are looking for a faith based support system can find LGBTQ friendly places of worship; no matter what faith it is. (Mine just happens to be Catholic)
- A open forum comment feed/guestbook
- A community events page
- Business page for LGBT+ businesses to place there stuff
- A prayer wall…. (Including a remembrance page)
- And the biggest thing I hope for is that this site will live on and be the “go to” for information.
This post will continue as things progress.
