Why Community Matters SL007

episode seven discusses the importance of community

After talking about friendships in episode 6, the sex blogging community as a whole is on my mind. Cultivating friendships is important but being a part of the community, even in a small way, matters just as much.

In this episode:

  • Communities remind us we’re not completely solitary.
  • We might not all be besties but we have a place to share the struggles and good times as a creator.
  • Communities are where you learn best practices, problems (like Twitter shadowbans), and what you don’t know that you don’t know.
  • Online communities are out there – in every social media platform.
  • Blogging memes are great for writers or photographers for opportunities to join the community.
  • Conventions and programs like Eroticon are a great way to connect.

    Great to hear your voice Kayla, I’m loving this.
    Can’t hear the worker in the background.
    I’m also laughing because I suspect you are waving your arms around as you talk – hence the bumped mike!
    As I’m listening I’m looking through my reader, and have just discovered exposing40 and I have a love of photographing cemeteries in common.Now that community for you!!!
