Alright readers… I have a lil surprise for you…

“Are you ready for some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent? Wel­come to the Insom­ni­a Club. The Insom­ni­a Club is rep­re­sented by a col­lec­tion of tal­ented writ­ers and thought-​​leaders on the top­ics of rela­tion­ship advice, dat­ing hor­ror sto­ries, love and sex.


The con­ver­gence of these var­i­ous writ­ers is an exper­i­men­tal way to throw a new twist on what we love to do: dish on the sul­try, provoca­tive and the down­right “dirty.” What does it mean? Every month the Insom­ni­a Club will choose a topic to write about. We each take our turns on the topic and share it with our audi­ences. The idea is that with such a vast array of strong well-​​written voices within the com­mu­nity we’ll be able to inspire a fun and healthy debate; and in the process you find a new blog­ger to read and enjoy.

None of us knows how this will turn out, but in addi­tion to liv­ing hard on the bot­tle, in prison cells or the street gut­ters we love to write; to be cre­ative and to have fun. We hope you’ll check out this mad­ness, com­ing to a blog near you.

How can you keep up with the Insom­nia Club? Do you know how to use Twit­ter? Have you ever wanted to ride bare-​​back on a majes­tic Uni­corn while sit­ting behind the Swayze? If you answered yes or no to either of these ques­tions, you’re in! Sim­ply search for the #insom­ni­a­club hash­tag on Twit­ter to keep up with every­one and their posts. Here is a list of our club ros­ter of tal­ented writ­ers. Happy reading!”

    Sounds like a very interesting idea, I await your first post!

    In response to Kamal’s call-out on no LGBTQ+ bloggers in this group: We asked a prominent gay blogger to be a part of it, and he declined. In addition, I am bi. AND we’d welcome any gay or lesbian bloggers happily!

    I agree with Kamal’s point, but his approach did little to engage a conversation on this, or even allow us much time to respond. No one in the group is discriminating, nor do we think “gay bloggers don’t exist”. I am actually quite offended – if you read further into what I write about, you’ll see why. I’d prefer someone talk to us instead of attack us. It does little to encourage discussion and moving forward on important issues, like LGBTQ+ discrimination.

    Any further questions, please ask! Any recommendations, please provide! If you want to join us, e-mail me at scorpgrrl04 at hotmail dot com.
