Thank You and a Link

I checked the e-mail account I used for Christmas the other day and discovered another gift in it!

So this is a special post to thank DustyD for the gift. :) It was much appreciated and will be greatly enjoyed, along with my gift from Breeding Jock.

I got around 3 other e-mails mentioning a gift. If you sent something and aren't either of the guys I just mentioned, I never got it. You might want to contact whatever place I sent you to and try to get your money back...

I'll end with a link to a blog I found hot. Thoughts, pics, and vids from a college student in Hawaii: http://speedostudent.blogspot.com

You guys know how much I like feet and underwear...now look for the pic of Speedo Student's hole. Doesn't it look sweet? haha

He had a link to my blog up when I stumbled on his, so I figured I would give him a little plug here. :)

Until I surface again...

Response to TheSword.com Post

You know, I never thought there would ever be a post about me on a gay news web site. I guess if I hadn't closed shop, there wouldn't have been a post, but I did. Since a lot of other people on the internet have read the post, I feel the need to respond to it here.

If you haven't seen the post about me, read it here: http://thesword.com/index.php/mixedmedia/3362-bareback-blogger-i-dont-like-who-ive-become.html

If you read my farewell post, you should know that I never cited "the dangers of bareback sex" as my reason for leaving. I don't feel any "regret" either. To be honest, I've had sex a few times since I made the decision to stop writing this blog. A condom was involved in none of them.

So I haven't had some kind of safe sex conversion. I'm pretty annoyed at how the writer at TheSword.com felt the need to re-state my motivations.

The simple truth involves the following few facts:

1) I'm single and have never really liked it.
2) I'm only 20 and very soon going to turn 21.
3) I'll be moving to a new school in a new state as soon as May or June.

Given these facts, I decided to change my life around. I've made some considerable changes in my habits...I don't spend whole days looking at porn and trolling for sex anymore, for example. I rarely log on to Adam4Adam and I don't even search through Craigslist very much.

I wasn't unhappy with the sex I was having. It was great. I enjoyed the last 2 years very much...I swapped hundreds of loads with hot guys. That said, I no longer want to center my life around sex. It's no longer meeting my needs or making me happy.

That's why I'm no longer the huge bareback whore I was. That's why I decided to end this blog.

What will make me happy? I have no idea. That's what I'm trying to figure out.

Word Count

(Note: I've now retired from writing this blog. See my "Farewell" post for more information. At this time there will be no further regular posts.)

I came across a tool that counts all the words on a web page, so I thought I would make a little post about the result.

I displayed all of my posts on one page and entered the URL. The result? 105,000 words, after adjusting for extra stuff like my blog link list and formatting.

What's 105,000 words? I did a little research and found out that it's a 400 page book.

So if you start this blog from the beginning and read it to the end, it must make one very interesting novel! ;-)

Kind of makes me wish I'd been writing a real novel all along. I never thought I could write so much on one topic..

That's all guys, I just thought you might find it interesting. I know I did! Less than a year and 105,000 words...

E-mails

Thank you all for the huge number of comments and e-mail messages you've sent since I posted my farewell.

I read some of them and skimmed others, but most of the messages are actually quite long, so I haven't actually sat down and tried to go through them yet. I will get there and probably respond to you sometime soon.

Hey, maybe even tonight if I get bored enough!

Just so you know, I'm not sick, in any kind of trouble, or having financial issues. My reasons for ending my blog and my lifestyle as it was for a long time are entirely internal and emotional.

So once again, thank you for taking the time...especially those of you who had a whole lot to say. Sorry for the delay, but I want to give your messages the time I think they deserve.

Until I surface again...
