Blogroll Additions

08 Nov

I would like to take the opportunity to introduce two new additions to my blogroll. As I’m still honing in on my intentions for this blog, as well as finding inspiration to write, I find that one thing has stayed consistent. I’m creating my own blogger community, centered on the people, things, and subjects that I value.

The first new addition is ClaimYourBeauty, an artistic blog centered around photography and the journey of finding love for oneself. The lovely Lisa posts revealing photography (nude or semi-nude) of herself as she comes to terms with her own perception of her body. The fact that not only is she doing this, but the fact that she’s sharing it with the world at large, is a humbling experience. I feel encouraged by such people, and am pleased to follow her journey and link others to it.

The second new addition is OhMyGodsThatGoesWhere?!, a blog created by several friends (Master Daemen, pet lexie, and MeiQingTing) who have a lot of experience in the sexual and kink scenes, and hope to share it with the world. Product reviews, 101 lessons, and more are expected from this resource, and based on the surge of posts I’ve seen in their first weeks, I look forward to more quality content.

As an aside on this post, I’ve decided to prevent myself from keeping this blog on a strict subject basis. I will be posting many different things here, all of which detail the ‘Curved Perspective’ I myself feel. I want to further expand upon it, develop it, and share content that helps advocate it. I hope to refine my view of it with the world, and hopefully have a concise way to describe such a thing if I’m ever asked why I named my blog what I did. :)

Thank you all, you’re awesome, and I look forward to having you share my journey as well.

 

Resolutions (of a sort)…

01 May

So you know how we all make those New Year’s resolutions, and then promptly forget all about them within a week? I know for a fact that I never make them to start with, just to save myself the disappointment (and, I like to think, because I’m happy with everything as it is).

I think I owe a few resolutions, one of which is to get this on again / off again blog back on its feet. :) I have an excellent site setup, an excellent identity, and loads to get off my chest that can’t be satisfied by the 140 character limit of my new Twitter addiction…

Update

12 Feb

Well, I suppose that’s simply titled enough. Ah well, suffice it to say it sums up this post pretty well.

Yes, I know I haven’t been keeping up to any regular pattern of updates, but mayhaps I will have a reason to update now. I’ll get to that in a minute.

First interesting bit of news, I grabbed a copy of the Windows 7 beta before the release window expired (basically, today). I am currently running a dual-boot of Windows XP and Windows 7 on my home desktop (not stupid enough to single boot on a beta OS), and I must say I am extremely impressed. Windows 7 gives us the same pretty look and most of the new navigation of Vista and adds a stable core to the system. For some strange reason, both me and my boyfriend have looked at the new OS, and after a brief period of tooling around with it, we are both confident in saying “I like this!”, despite there being very little physical or interactive difference for the system, and the both of us being firmly against Vista. Whatever Windows has done, they’ve done it right, and this is only just the Beta. I look forward to further advancements, and I’m actually looking forward to purchasing a copy of Windows’ new OS and actually feel happy to do so.

Now, on to the meat of things. When I first came up with the web domain and the title “Curved Perspective”, I did so for different reasons (and because I was just randomly coming up with stuff), but the base reason was because I felt that I did have a perspective that wasn’t as straightlined as others. I see different angles of things, different perspectives, and have an innate understanding of things that not everyone is able to tap into. While I’m not perfect by any means, this has still served me in a number of ways to experience and learn about life and culture. It’s part of the reason I want to go back to school for sociology or psychology, to give myself some further awareness beyond this unusual way of looking at things.

But now I realize that there are more than just a few people who have this kind of a perspective, even if they don’t realize it. I had realized this previously and at some point wanted to turn this website into a community of individuals who see things differently. I find alternative communities are huge for this, and given that I am part of a series of communities, this provides me an in for accessing all sorts of people to start the system off. I will be working on establishing this concept further, but I fully expect to build up a forum for this purpose and beginning to send out the invites right, left, and center. I can only hope this can succeed to the point of having a well-established community that can actually make an impression on the world at large, and while I have no specific goals for this entity, I am most definitely confident that it can do only good.

I invite everyone to take part and become involved in this if you feel that you match the requirements of being open-minded and having a curved perspective of your own. We’ll see where this goes.

Due For An Update

09 Jan

Greetings, again!

It’s quite unfortunate what a low readership will do to your creativity. That said, I’ll be enabling user registration (albeit monitored) after posting this in hopes to actually get some comments going.

Very recently I was linked to a fascinating blog, which I’ll be popping in my sidebar shortly, and specifically this blog entry, which expanded upon the difficulties of defining a polyamorous relationship, or really anything. It’s a long read, but most definitely worthwhile!

I’m working on prioritizing things right now, as well as consolidating my online presence a little more in order to provide some more content rich posts, but for now I’ll need to sign off.

Take care, and think like you want to!

Site Revamp

04 Dec

So I know the few people who actually read this blog had gotten used to the old style, but I finally got off my ass to change some things around here, namely finding a much better theme and tying the main URL in to a redirect to this page as well. Until such a time as I get a full-fledged website hosted on the main Curved Perspective URL, this blog will be the sum total of my front-facing web presence. I’ve got some ideas kicking around as to what else I’d like to pursue, but due to the time I do or do not have, this will only be conceived in the future.

That said, I hope everyone enjoys the new look, this fantastic theme provided by Inanis, and the integration of the new Gravatar project which he has indirectly introduced me to.

In the meantime, I’ll probably be tweaking and adjusting things to make them even more snazzy, and likely posting here on a more regular basis, but for now, I leave you with what it is!
