personal stories

Another year has already flown by and today we start a new one! In 2011, I decided to do a recap of my year through photos and I really enjoyed the process of reflecting on everything that I experienced over the year – so I decided to do it again this year. I noticed that Facebook implemented a feature that does just that this year as well – highlighting key moments from your year.

The funny thing is that I used to be the guy that barely ever took any pictures, but over the last several years, I’ve found that I take way more pictures – obviously social media has had a lot to do with this, as has Homorazzi. You’ll also notice some of my photos have filters and that’s because I used Instagram a lot more this year.

I’ve broken down my year month-by-month and included a little montage of pictures from that month along with a little description. Happy New Year, everyone!

Check out my month-by-month overview below…

Its that dreaded time again. Elimination night. Last week, Mike Catherwood became the season’s first casualty when he was eliminated from the competition. Last night, the stars hit the floor with dances that reflected personal stories in their life. We heard of love, loss, triumph and celebration, but tonight, we close the chapter on someone’s story, but who will it be?

Len thought last night was fantastic. There were spills, thrills and the leaderboard was totally shook up. He said some of the routines were fabulous and stood out. Len picks Hines Ward and Kym Johnson to re-perform their sexy Samba from last night. But before they perform, Tom lets the two know that they are safe for another week.

Sugar Ray Leonard and Romeo are first to hear their fate. Sugar Ray had a fighting Paso Doble and Romeo did a touching Rumba for his fallen cousins. Len loved Sugar’s comeback Paso but thought that Romeo took a step backward in improvements this week. So who’s safe? Its Sugar Ray and Anna. Psych. Romeo and Chelsie are also safe this week.

See the performances and see who was eliminated after the jump.

Last week, viewers didn’t pick up the phone and hung up the Love Line on Mike Catherwood making him the first casualty of the season twelve. This week, the stars were able to choose their own music and tell their own personal stories through their dances. This was also great for the pros who could also pick from a variety of dance styles and weren’t locked into choosing between one or two.

Because we haven’t seen of the dances we are about to encounter, the Dancing With The Stars troupe takes to the floor to to show off what we are about to see. Tristan and Nicole are up first displaying a fiery Paso Doble. Ted and Peta take on the sexy stylings of the Rumba and Kiki and Oksana finish us off with a sassy Samba. We are in for a wild ride toinght.

Tom prefaces the night by saying we will experience stories of love, loss and celebration so without further ado, lets get started!

This fall, we have a lot of exciting changes happening with Homorazzi, and one of these changes will be implemented this weekend. We’ll be moving Sunday Submissions to Saturday, meaning that they are now called Saturday Submissions, and Sunday will be more of a Behind the Blogday where the cast focuses on writing more personal entries and sharing their own personal confessional or weekly recaps via webcam, should they be inclined to do so. Unscripted: Just the cast being themselves.

We are very excited to designate weekends on Homorazzi to getting to know our readers more, and getting to know the Homorazzi cast more.

We’ve had readers sending in their articles for a few months now, and we must say it has been a great success! Men, women, gay, straight, people from different backgrounds have written in to speak their mind. Saturdays on the site are devoted to our readers all over the world, giving YOU the chance to write and be heard!!!

Submit your article to saturdays[at]homorazzi[dot]com each week by Friday, so we can go through your article and get it ready and ensure it is suitable for posting. Don’t worry about the pics – if you have suggestions or a specific pic you’d like to use, please include them in your email.

We look forward to hearing what you have to say – something funny, touching, whatever inspires you…

We ask that the article be a minimum of 2 paragraphs, and know that we reserve the right to not post all articles if it is not a fit for the site. Include where you are from, and you’re welcome to include your name and a picture of yourself if you like to be placed at the end of your article.

PS: If your articles become uber popular, you never know where it can lead…

PPSS: Thank you to all of our Sunday Saturday Submission writers thus far – keep up the good work!

Ladies & Gentlemen, Gays, Straights, and everything in between,

We’ve had readers sending in their articles for a few months now, and we must say it has been a great success! Men, women, gay, straight, people from different backgrounds have written in to speak their mind. Sundays on the site are devoted to our readers all over the world, giving YOU the chance to write and be heard!!! G.O.D. took Sundays off and so are we. Here’s your chance to get opinions and ideas heard.

These writers have pushed their own boundaries in sharing their personal stories and opinions with the world. So far, we’ve had articles covering topics including dating, religion, political positions, religion, personal insecurities, coming out stories, original songs, and much more. We know you have something to share, so why not put yourself out there and do something different? Writing IS very therapeutic you know – a great way to vent or simply to have an outlet for your creative side.
