I am sat here in girly mode (see previous post) and just carried out a search on WordPress for other blogs on the subject of crossdressing. At first glance there are quite a few but closer inspection of the first four showed that they have not been updated in a year in the best case and 3 years in the worst.
My viewing figures have doubled over yesterdays and the site has only been back a day and half, so it can’t be that there isn’t an audience.
This has led me to think about the reasons why these blogs may have stopped because a couple of them were quite good. The most obvious reason has to be that the writer has moved on either to another site (although this isn’t mentioned anywhere if this is the case), or they may have just reached the point where they no longer felt the need to continue.
For most crossdressers / transvestites the influence of dressing is proportional to the time spent dressed. By that I mean that most don’t want to – or can’t – talk about the subject when they’re not ‘en-femme’. I personally have known crossdressers who enjoy being dressed and will talk about almost anything, but once back in their male clothes find it difficult to look me in the eye – almost like they’re ashamed. Strange but true.
I’m not a psychologist so I can only speak from my own personal experience. I had some of the same guilty feelings many years ago, before I accepted this was a part of me and that I couldn’t change it. Once I embraced this side of my personality I found it a lot easier to speak about the subject regardless of whether I was dressed or not.
It may also be that dressing / not dressing cycle causing problems of lack of inspiration for posts. For me, it’s not unusual for me to go two or three months without ‘needing’ to dress. On the other hand I have gone for two or three months where I dress nearly every day, even if it’s just a few hours in the evening.
Whatever the reasons, it’s a shame that the good sites don’t continue. All I can say is this blog won’t finish for those sorts of reasons, so you’ll be stuck with me for a while yet!
So for now, I will continue to check out the list and will try to put together a list of the more interesting blogs on the subject once I’ve weeded out all of the more pornographic ones.
