8 Sex Blog Ideas To Help You Create Lots of Content

Getting started with a sex blog is nearly as difficult as keeping one going. This kind of content is often inherently personal. Even if you decide you want to write fiction, you put a piece of yourself on the page. And, as plenty of sex bloggers can tell you, assumptions will be made about you whether you’re writing fiction or fact. While the look and feel of your sex blog matters, it’s the content that will always be most important. You don’t have to have the pretty design or the coolest features right away. What you need most is content...

9 Things New Sex Bloggers Need to Know

Thanks to Quinn Rhodes for suggesting this topic. Her actual request was for a podcast episode on the things I wish I’d known or the things newbie sex bloggers need to know, and I think that’ll happen in the future. For now, let’s talk about the topic here. It’s big enough to come back to later. Is this everything single thing a sex blogger needs to know? Definitely not. Partly because that list could go on forever, and partly because we all come to this with our own experiences. You may have known some of these things when you began....

5 Types of Content to Create for Your Sex Blog or Adult Website

When you think website or blog content, you likely think of text first. Yes, overwhelmingly, this is true. But not all written content is the same, and not all your content has to be written at all. If you have a sex blog, you likely already share personal experiences, erotic fiction, or thoughts on sex or relationships with your audience. E-commerce sites and service sites struggle more with content but tend towards two options: educational content or erotica. But it’s easy to get bored or want to try something new. Sometimes it feels like the well has run dry, and...

The Things You Should and Shouldn’t Do SL018

A huge thanks to Cara Thereon — one of my favorite people — for unintentionally inspiring this podcast episode. She started a discussion on Twitter about the practice of commenting on blogs and how to handle it, and she got me thinking. We all believe there are things we should or shouldn’t be doing as sex bloggers, smutlancers, creatives, and/or business people. And some of those things tend to stress us out, make us think we’re doing it wrong, or kill our creativity. This week, I share what I think we should do…and what we really shouldn’t. In this episode:...

episode 16 of the Smutlancer Podcast - who are you writing for 2

Who Are You Writing For? SL016

The question came up, in a recent conversation, about who we write for. Do you write for yourself or your audience? Me? I write for both. Sometimes at the same time, and sometimes exclusively for one or the other. And when you write professionally, you’ve got two other groups to think about — the client and their audience.

A question often asked by sex bloggers - when will my sex blog make money 0

When Will My Sex Blog Make Money?

Tl;dr: There are no guaranteed timelines to making money. It’s what you do right now and what you keep doing that matters most. So when will my sex blog make money? It’s a question all sex blogging smutlancers ask themselves, especially when you’re working hard to get someone to hire you, accept your pitch, or become a sponsor. The short answer? As long as it takes. Yeah, I know, it’s not satisfying. The first time I made money from my blog was a total fluke. Someone randomly emailed me and wanted to pay for a sponsored post. Before that, I...

Smutlancer Podcast episode on comparing yourself to other sex bloggers and creatives 0

The Compare and Contrast Thing We All Do SL005

In episode 5, I discuss a bad habit that a lot of creative people have – and as a sex blogger, I know I do it. We compare ourselves to others and decide there’s something wrong with us. Sometimes the insecurity of jealousy makes us not like the other person but most often, we find something in ourselves lacking. We tell ourselves we’re not as good as they are and we never will be. The compare and contrast thing is something we all do, and it’s something we should all do less of. In this episode: This week’s episode is...

The Anatomy of a Good Blog Post

“Good” is subjective. A good blog post even more so. Only one part of what makes a post work isn’t about subject matter or word choice but how the information is presented so that it can easily be read. You can craft the “perfect” blog post (based on the steps below) and if it’s not interesting, entertaining, or helpful, it won’t matter. And you can write words that move people and speak to them on a deep level filled with errors or presented as a wall of text on the screen. This is purely subjective, but if you’re looking for...
