What did the year 2013 meant for me personally and especially for my blog? Well the biggest change in my life was that I started writing this blog and keeping up a FB and twitter account for PINK IN OUR LIVES. I didn’t know how the response would turn out, but by getting more than 2000 followers on facebook, twitter, tumblr and on my blog I was overwhelmed. Thank you all and I love putting my time and good sense in it for you all. I tried to keep my blog and other social media about the positive and sexy things in our PINK life, because there is enough bad news in the world. I want to show a variety and I am gonna try in 2014 to do even more and better.
Have a great New Year and be true to yourself, be proud of who you are and let us make the gay community and ourselves proud!!! Strive for equality, acceptance and love wherever you live!!!
