...which is probably not saying much, when compared to the frequency of much more skilled and experienced of the TG Caption bloggers, but, I do what I can.
Your visits, comments, and ratings are much appreciated!! And, while I get a bit discouraged, sometimes, at the great disparity between the number of hits and the number of comments or 'like/dislike' check-marks, I just remind myself that most of you are, as I once was, among a silent majority of "lurkers" who -while deeply enjoying the themes, concepts, depictions, and methods of gender transformation- are not in a position to offer feedback for fear of possible repercussions or having your views discovered by those around you. I can thoroughly relate!
Or, perhaps, I have failed to share enough of my self when posting, in the effort to make the focus be on the captions rather than the author. As we approach the anniversary of this blog, (and effectively, the 'birth' of "Elle-Jae Matthews"), I have been thinking that it might be a good thing to open up some more and share who I am, in addition to the captions I write and receive from friends and compatriots in the TG-Cap communities.
Your thoughts on this would also be greatly appreciated!! As I have always been rather an introvert and a wall-flower, not believing my views or personal experiences to be of much interest to others. Neither wishing to bring offense to any by the sharing of certain beliefs or matters of faith, nor through doing such, have the spirit of this fun avocation besieged with input from those who do not share a love of things TG/TF but have stumbled upon text that peaks their curiosity/interest in subjects unrelated to the captions herein displayed.
All that being said, I offer the following. A photomanip I did months ago for entry in a Y!group contest, and have just captioned for a dear kindred soul I met among those of Rachel's Haven. I had been meaning to caption the image for posting here, and not gotten to, or found much inspiration for, a story to wrap around it. Then, upon finding a love of reviewing beers among the happiness of a friend, the following union of hobbies came to mind. So, please, indulge yourselves in:
"Bodacious Micro-Brew" (for "Consensus" at Rachel's Haven)
