A New Blog: 2boysinlove

I came across a new LGBT blog last week and wanted to post about it earlier but it seems like something is always coming up.

The name of the blog is 2 Boys in Love, and you can check it out by clicking here.

This is how the banner reads:

We’re two young guys in love and this is where we write about what’s happening. If you’re new to the site, you might want to click on the “About Our Blog” tab. Oh, and welcome!

It seems like a nice place to go. And it’s slightly different than other LGBT blogs written by young gay men in the sense that it seems to be fairly oriented toward m/m romance. At least that’s how it looks from the blog list and from the blogger profiles. In fact, I have interviewed hundreds of young gay male bloggers over the years and I’ve never seen any of them interested in m/m romance with such a passion. Young gay men all like to read LGBT books. I know they’ve read some of my books. But as a group, the m/m romance genre isn’t something that I find normally attracts younger gay men. So I think it’s nice these guys, Matt and Brad, are helping promote the genre this way.

I also have to say this blog is by far the most professional blog I’ve ever seen written by young people, gay or straight. I’m not knocking anyone else’s blog, so please don’t get the wrong idea. One of the things I love about blogging in general is when the blogs aren’t perfect and the voices of the bloggers are relaxed and casual. I post about my favorite blogs written by young gay men all the time and the thing I like/love most about them is how imperfect they are.

But all bloggers do it differently, and 2 Boys in Love is something I would recommend checking out. It’s very interesting. I’ve been trying to get an interview with them but they seem awfully busy, which is fine. I’ll just have to keep trying until I nail them.
