For those who wanted more Caitlyn Jenner beyond her Diane Sawyer interview, you’ve been granted your wish.
WhoSay, where actors and others in Hollywood can create totally unfiltered blog posts, has set Caitlyn Jenner up with her own blog. Whereas tabloids and even some television channels filter content and often rewrite interviews how they see fit, readers will enjoy an unscripted account of Caitlyn’s walk through society as she comes into her own. Her first post, “The Journey Begins,” has grabbed 230,000 likes in 24 hours and counting.
Not only will Caitlyn Jenner discuss her amazing transformation from Olympian to elegant womanhood, she’ll discuss issues important to the LGBT community, and those who may doubt transforming themselves as Jenner did. Caitlyn unveiled her true self back in April, and had appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair back in June. Since her announcement, President Obama shouted out to her at Logo’s Trailblazer Honors, and scores of A-list actors have stepped forward in support of Jenner’s actions, including ex-wife Kris. Of course, not everyone feels positive about how the former Olympic gold medalist suddenly changed her appearance, with many finding her journey a means of finding financial success again.
Reading through her initial blog post, it’s clear she’s still “learning the ropes,” if you will. During a recent dinner with other transgender women, many of them admitted they’ve been transformed for one, ten, even twenty years. The first two months, in fact, have been pretty eye-opening to Caitlyn Jenner, according to her initial blog post on WhoSay. Although she’s still new, she feels obligated to represent the transgender community and has picked the best platform to unleash her ideas.
Much of Caitlyn Jenner’s journey has been logged through social media, so seeing long-form articles is definitely warming. She had isolated herself from the transgender community for decades, so she’s playing catch-up in many facets of transgender society, according to her editorial. The initial post attracted mixed commentary, with many individuals sounding off how she “simply removed her man parts” and others still under the assumption this entire story was a PR stunt.
Resources, information, and her complete story is available at her website, CaitlynJenner.com. You can also follow her heartwarming journey at her blog, and if you’d like to learn more about starting your own transgender blog but would prefer creating your own, an excellent guide to starting a blog for newcomers can be found at this article.
