My Weekend Blogiversary

I don’t know when it officially becomes gauche to celebrate your own blog anniversaries in public. And, honestly, some years I forgot about the date myself. But this Saturday will mark my 15th year writing Dorothy Surrenders. I started it way back in 2006 because why let the boys have all the fun? And here we are all those years and sweeps lesbian kisses and very special gay episodes and celebrity outings and celebrity guestbians and all that fighting, fucking, crying, drinking and everything else later still at it. Geez, you’d think we’d learn. Well this year – as with each passing day, week, month and year – I am thankful for you continuing to stop by or perhaps finding me for the first time.

I’ve said it many times before, but I write Surrenders to get the things I yell at the television (and world/universe/et al) out of my head. That folks come by to read it has been one of the great rewards of my life. And, because I am Gen X for life, I have steadfastly never put ads on my site – despite offers – because I’m no sellout, man! (*dances furiously to “My Sharona” in a gas station*)

Still I have been asked over the years how people can tip me. But aside from the one campaign I ran to buy this very laptop (yes, I’m still using it all these years later), there really haven’t been any ways to do it. But this year I thought, why not. So if you feel so inclined, feel free to tip your friendly neighborhood lesbian blogger. My Venmo is @Dorothy-Snarker or you can use my email dorothysnarker@yahoo.com. You are, of course, under no obligation to contribute. I’m just happy you’ve liked processing all things lesbian pop culture and then some with me for these past 15 years. Here’s to many more years of queering the internet together. Happy weekend, all.
