When I first opened Spectrum Bloggers, one of my goals was to start a gay and lesbian blog carnival, however much to my surprise I found that daily dose of queer, one of the very first blogs to become a member of Spectrum Bloggers, already had created such a thing. In fact, the first Carnival of Bent Attraction was posted a year ago today! So without further ado, I give you the first anniversary edition of the Carnival of Bent Attractions.
Jon Swift gives us two posts for this month’s Carnival. In Ted Haggard Shows the Virtue of Hypocrisy, Jon asks if hypocrisy is really such a bad thing? Maybe we shouldn’t actually expect people to practice what they preach. On a side note, isn’t it sad when the subjects of satire are so extreme that the satire is nearly believable? In his other submitted post, Jon wants to save the institution of marriage, starting with saving Britney Spear’s marriage.
At American Inventor Spot, they’re showcasing a new product that brings a whole new meaning for “turning on” the light.
The force that through… tells us of some interesting legislation in NYC that would make it easier for people to legally change their gender to that which they feel more comfortable with. Dr. Paul discusses some reactions of the transgender community that may surprise you.

Well, I’ve finished updating the CMS but in the process somehow lost ALL existing content!! Though some old blog entries, forum posts, and informational updates are gone, Spectrum Bloggers is back with hopefully enough new features to more than make up for it.
ATOM feeds are finally supported. These are the default feeds produced by Blogger-powered blogs and until this update, they wouldn’t show up in the user feeds on the left, leaving far too many of us without our feeds showing up here. If you have an ATOM feed already as part of your profile, you don’t need to do anything. Your feed should already be available (really, go check).
Also I’ve completely revamped the blogroll code to allow for complete customization. Now you can visit the Blogroll code page to create a custom blogroll of Spectrum Bloggers member blogs for your site. You get to select as many or as few categories as you’d like to show up and of those, the number of blogs you’d like to list at any one time. Your Spectrum Bloggers blogroll will be populated with a random list of the number of blogs you chose from the categories that you chose. I will be turning the old blogrolls off shortly so update today.
There’s also a new poll on the right so be sure to take a look and vote. I’ve checked everything out the best I can but it wouldn’t surprise me if there are some bugs hiding. If you have any problems please let me know so that I can take care of them.
In the unlikely chance that you have arrived here looking for Spectrum, the Seventh-Day Adventist magazine, it may be found at SpectrumMagazine.org (www.spectrummagazine.org)
