As time goes on this list will grow and change. Below is a list of resources that I recommend for smutlancing writers:

Events to Attend

Eroticon: Whether you’re a sex blogger writing about your personal kinks, a sex toy reviewer who’s looking for a new way to get off, or a sexpert who wants to educate the public, Eroticon in London is a can’t-miss event. (Full disclosure: I spoke at the 2018 and 2019 events.)

Websites to Check Out

CopyBlogger: Good copywriting, blogging for business information regardless of genre or niche. They offer a ton of educational resources, especially good if you want to work in the non-sex-writing field, too.

ProBlogger: I’ve used their Job Board to find multiple writing jobs (outside of sex). They also have a widely read blog and a popular podcast.

Seth Godin: He blogs every single day from 100 words to a 1000 words, and he’s a smart guy to follow when it comes to working for yourself and marketing. He’s not known for being friendly to sex writers, but his philosophy about marketing, writing, and selling your services is spot-on.

Podcasts to Listen To

Unemployable: Brian Clark founded CopyBlogger and has found a way to make himself unemployable – that is, he could get a job but he doesn’t want one. Want to learn more about working for yourself? Tune in!

Zen Founder: When you work as a smutlancer, you’re working for yourself, and it can mess with your head. Zen Founder lets you know you’re not alone, and gives you tricks and tips to handle the weirdness a little better.

Akimbo: A weekly podcast by Seth Godin, he takes a single concept or topic and dives into it in a way few others do.
