Why Community Matters SL007

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.

Kayla Lords

Kayla Lords is a freelance sex writer, podcaster, blogger, all-around sex content creating human, and she really likes creating content. As a writer, she focuses on sex and kink primarily on BDSM and power exchange. She works with private clients to write their content and manage their social media, while also co-hosting two podcasts, running a YouTube channel, and managing multiple blogs. Let's just say, she stays busy and wants to keep it that way. Kayla is an international speaker and an award-winning sex blogger. She believes we are stronger together as a community than we are isolated and apart. We all deserve to get paid for the work we do, but until we understand our cumulative power, we'll all wonder if we're "the only one" doing this smutlancing thing.

    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!!!
