4 Things You Can Do To Improve Your Sex Blog Today
Consider this post an example of two things you can do at once — an easy way to create content when you’re just not feeling it and a way to get eyes on older content you’ve created in the past. Also, the main purpose of today’s post is to give you actionable steps you can do for your sex blog right now (or the next time you have a couple of hours available).
Content Tip: Create Round-Ups of Your Own Content
This is easier to do for informational content, but I can see how it would work for erotic fiction or non-fiction, too. Not sure what to write about, but know you need to publish something to stay consistent? (*raises hand*) Think of a single topic you know you’ve focused on in the past. Go through your archives and find older posts that have been forgotten by long-term readers OR never seen by new followers.
Ta-da — a blog post is born, and you only have to write a synopses or explanation of each item you’re sharing. Here’s how it looks in action — and also, pick one of these four things to do to improve your sex blog!
Improving Your Sex Blog
Please don’t think I’m saying you need to do everything in this list. Figure out how much time you have to devote to your sex blog, and pick one or two things to focus on. Also, think about what your goals are, what needs to be done, and where you feel like you need the most guidance on how to do something.
But if you’re looking to spend time on your sex blog this weekend or for a few hours, here are a few things to try:
Create or Update Your About Page
Your about page is one of the most important elements of your sex blog. It tells people who you are, what they can expect to find on your website, and why they should keep reading your content. If you don’t have one, you need one. And if you haven’t thought about it in a very long time, it’s almost certainly time for an update. To learn more, check out About That About Page.
When we’re focused on writing and publishing new content, it’s easy to forget to look under the hood of our own websites. Some things slip your mind or aren’t as visible as other issues. Updating plug-ins, backing up your content, and updating old pages are just a few things you can do to keep your sex blog in good shape so new readers stick around.

Write Something, Damn It!
Some sex bloggers wait for inspiration. Others worry they “shouldn’t” write certain types of content. Ultimately, the decision of what kind of content you create is up to you. But you have a LOT more options than you realize. Scroll through any of these to help you sit down and write something, damn it!

Learn Something New
There’s always something to learn as a sex blogger. The daunting thing is that you don’t always know what you don’t know. Pick anything you’re not familiar with. Whether you act on it or not is up to you, but at least you’ll have more information than before.
What is a Nofollow Link?: This is REALLY important if you want to include sponsored posts, affiliate links, or even sex toy reviews on your sex blog.
What are Backlinks and Should You Care About Them?: Backlinks are one tool in a REALLY big box of things that can help grow your blog — and they’re something that brands really want for their own site too.
Where to Find (Legal) Images for Your Blog: You’re not required to use images on your sex blog, but here’s what you shouldn’t do — randomly Google for an image, download it, and then upload it without linking back or citing the ORIGINAL source. You’re violating copyright when you do. There are better ways to add images to your blog.
