Hi, my name is Benjamin Kellogg. I am 22 years old, and I am a professional writer. I am a 2012 graduate of Cayuga Community College with an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts with a Concentration in Writing.
I was diagnosed with autism as a young boy and currently write a bi-weekly column regarding my life as an autistic adult. The title of my column is, “The Learning Curve,” and it can be found on the AutismAfter16.com website.
I also write and maintain a blog about my own interests entitled, “Kellogg Thoughts,” at kellogthoughts.com (the missing extra “g” is a long, comical story I might want to add to a memoir one day). On my blog, I have written poems about pop culture icons, fictional advice columns for pop culture characters, and video game reviews.
Along with those topics, my blog also has a few recurring features: “Pop Culture Questions,” in which I explore movies, television shows, books, video games, and other cool stuff from my perspective; “Random Top Five,” in which I make a list of what I feel are interesting items based on a particular subject and briefly discuss my thoughts about each item on the list; and “Paragon Fantasy Wrestling,” an ongoing serial story about a fictional professional wrestling league populated by colorful characters of my own creation.
I have also written a children’s book which I’m still working at getting published and am in the process of writing a second book. I am a member of Special Olympics. I participate in the basketball, soccer, bowling, and floor hockey programs as well as a local “challenger” baseball team.
In addition to writing, my favorite activities include watching professional wrestling events with my friends, playing video games, watching obscure television shows on DVD, and (especially) reading good books.
There is a direct link to Ben's blog by clicking either photo. Check it out - he is one amazing young man. It is my pleasure to introduce him to all of you ~ I hope you'll encourage him here or sign up to follow his blog. Thanks for taking time to read his post.
Thank you Ben for guest blogging today!
