On my birthday, I sent my OOTN photo to Domino Dollhouse to post on their Tumblr. When I woke up the next morning, I was shocked to discover all the attention that photo received over on Tumblr, not to mention the amount of traffic it created here on the blog. Just a few days after I had posted an announcement about reaching 5,000 page views total for the blog, that activity on Tumblr led to over 5,000 page views here in a single day! Over that next few days I've went from 17 followers to 55 and rising!
The support, encouragement, and love I have received on Tumblr (and here on the blog) was the best birthday gift I could imagine. I've gotten the opportunity to interact with so many people here, and received some very inspirational messages. I want to say thank you to everyone who has followed this blog, commented on my posts, sent me messages, & shared my photo on Tumblr. I really appreciate it very much. The entire reason I write this blog is to try to encourage people to be themselves. Sure, the blog is also about raising awareness for men wearing what they want, but at the very core the idea remains to give people inspiration to be who they want to me. Thank you, everyone, for helping me to share that message.
The activity on Tumblr, as well as several messages from readers, has prompted me to start my own Tumblr. While it's going to be more of a personal space for general things that I like (a place to get to know Michael Spookshow more!), and not just focused on men's fashion freedom like this blog, I will be posting all of my OOTD pictures there.
You can find my Tumblr here at His Black Dress.
To all the readers who found this blog through that original post on the Domino Dollhouse Tumblr, I ask you to take a moment to visit my new Tumblr and reblog your favorite OOTDs of mine.

I want to give a huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone who supports this blog. I love having the opportunity to talk to you all, and show you a glimpse in to the life of a boy in a dress. Thank you!
