One year ago, I decided to blog about a large, yet hidden, part of me: my attractions and love for “bearish men.” It was very new to me, because prior to this, I managed a private Yahoo Group that pretty much did the same thing I’m doing now here (and long story short, I abandoned that group because I thought that it was best if I “turned straight” — thank goodness I didn’t go with it).
Over the course of that year, I have met many new and old friends alike. I am very thankful to all of you for browsing through, commenting (both positive and negative), and supporting this blog. I can’t express my gratitude enough for being able to share such passions with like-minded people.
So with that, I’ve decided to drop the “Weblog” as this blog is starting to have a life of its own. Plus, I seem to imply that my name is “BearMythology.” Anyway, I’m not “physically” a bear, though the years seem to be putting some good pounds on me. I’m slowly trying to “come out of the closet” somewhat, so if you have a MySpace page or LiveJournal blog, do add me as your friend. Also, if you have a YouTube page, please add or invite me. I’m not quite “savvy” with all of these social-networking sites since I’m not a very “sociable” person (both online and off).
So, what happened this past year?
My number one bear is still Ray Winstone.
Chris Dowd is one media personality I am unbelievably massively obsessed with.
Heinz Ollesch, Terry Hollands, Leon White, Reese Hoffa, Manuel Martinez, Christian Cantwell, Prince Fielder, Joba Chamberlain, Jeff Saturday, and Kasey Studdard are just but a handful few of my favorite bearish athletes.
I posted about Warren Sapp about 1 post too many… And I will continue to post about this woofy bear!
Strongman and musclechub extraordinaire Phil Martin emailed me and he was super friendly.
Interviewed a fantastically woofy straight pro wrestler, Shane Morbid.
Got involved in some online drama with a strongman’s (Boris Haraldsson) girlfriend which fortunately led to a happy ending.
Recently started doing weekly polls (Two Woofy Tuesday) for which I’m not doing too good in (I’m 0-for-3!).
Having way too much fun on Shirtless Saturday.
I love pro-wrestling way too much as it completes the trifecta of my bear fetishes.
I’m always fascinated/horrified at what the straight guys tend to comment about this blog. Here’s one recent discussion about my J-Rocc posting. (“Popular gay blog”? Lol)
Here’s my most important post ever on the blog: Carl Sagan’s A Pale Blue Dot.
Well, that’s pretty much a small sampling of what happened this past year. Here’s looking forward to Year 2…
