I thought I’d share with you how the people using search engines (like Google) came to my blog today. It’s amazing how many hits I get from people looking for porn. Note the person who typed in “kenyon kenyon gay porn.” I have never done porn, whomever was looking to catch me out there!!

Happy New Year!
2007 was a really difficult year for me personally, and for the first time in more than a year I feel rejuvenated, refocused, and ready to get to work!
With that in mind, I thought I’d update you what you can expect in 2008:
NEW BLOG FOCUS: I am re-inventing this blog. I got bored with it, but I think I have figured out my niche: The other black queer bloggers have entertainment/pop culture on lock. I can’t keep up with the Jenkins’. But we have fewer folks profiling arts and culture, politics/policy and community organizing–book/music/theater reviews, and profiling people and organizations and artists work that is a little off the radar. I am also interested in talking to folks who can help break down complex issues of the day. I know all these smart and talented people doing work all over the country, and nobody ever asks them shit!
AUDIO/PODCAST: I am going to try to include with at least one blog a week, an audio recording related to the prose I post. For instance, if I review a book, why not post an interview with the author? I was going to have one for this week, but their are some sound problems with the Skype recorded interview. If I can fix it, I’ll post the audio , otherwise I’ll transcribe.
SO…Look for an accompanying podcast of interviews with folks in 2008!!! I want to be a radio show host, but since no one’s knocking down my door just yet, I’ll make my own damn radio! So if you are out there, and got something happening in your community, or have a book, CD, or something else you want to talk about, hit me up. Let me know what it is, and maybe we can do something with it.
OTHER WORK: In addition to working on this blog, I am continuing to work with Community HIV/AIDS Mobilization Project, and my work as board co-chair with Queers for Economic Justice. I am also working on another anthology called A New Queer Agenda, with Lisa Duggan, Richard Kim, and Joseph Defilippis, which should be in bookstores by the end of the year. I will be quietly working away on some fiction too, which is new territory for me, but here goes nothin!
