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.

I am an erotic author, sex blogger, podcaster, freelance writer, an opinionated marketer, and a speaker with a focus on BDSM and D/s. Here at The Smutlancer, I help people who want to create content or products about sex get paid to do it. I'm sharing what I've learned as a freelancer and a sex blogger to build a career. You can find me online sharing my innermost sexual thoughts and experiences and helping kinksters have healthy BDSM relationships. I'm also a masochistic babygirl submissive with an amazing and sadistic Daddy Dom and business partner, John Brownstone.

    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!!!
