Managing Multiple Social Media Accounts

We’ve been asked a few times, “How do I handle multiple Twitter accounts?” And our response is, “We wish we knew!” That’s because, we feel like we struggle with the balance of personal social media, professional social media, and social media management on behalf of clients. That being said, we have come up with strategies, tools, and methods to do the best we can.

Choosing the Right Social Media Platform (for You)

A lot of sex bloggers and adult content creators worry about which social media platform to be on — or if they should be on all of them. Be shocked…we have opinions. This is a rather long episode, but we go through the big three — Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram — and a few you might not have considered in the past.

episode of 40 of the smutlancer podcast talks about finding your path as a creative person 0

Finding Your Own Path

In this week’s episode, I want to encourage everyone to stop worrying about what “everyone” does or that “no one” does the thing you want to try. As a freelancer, a sex blogger, a creative person of any kind, the best thing we can ever do is find and follow our own path. Even if it doesn’t look like what anyone else seems to be doing. In this episode: This week’s episode is brought to you by Blubrry, a podcasting hosting solution. Many of us want to do what’s right, but that means we get stuck in doing what other...

Smutlancer Privacy and Anonymity on Social Media

How private should you keep your information online? How anonymous do you want to be? I won’t pretend to have the answers to either of these questions. The reality is that we all have to decide for ourselves how out and open we want to be — and how safe we feel. But every time I think I’ve found the right level of privacy and anonymity in this smutlancer life versus being out and open, something happens to knock me back a little. So I’m not sure how much of this is advice and how much is just me processing,...

get more views on your sex blog with these 3 methods 2

3 Ways to Get More Views on Your Sex Blog

Getting views to your sex blog — or any website — is essentially a numbers game. And while I advocate making content the focus of building an audience and increasing your views, there are other ways to do it. None of these are “hacks” designed to decrease creating damn good content on your sex blog. Your first and top priority should be the content you create — whether you’re writing or not. These methods (platforms, actually) are tools that many of us think belong to the “vanilla” (non-sex writing) world, when we can definitely use them, too. In order for...

4 Ways FOMO Kills Your Productivity

FOMO or Fear of Missing Out is an absolute drain on a lot of us. It’s not good for our confidence, our productivity, or our mindset. How do you know if FOMO has you in its ugly grips? Are you scrolling through social media, and even though it’s making you feel awful, you can’t stop? Do you randomly check Twitter or Instagram, knowing you should be working, but wondering if there’s anything interesting going on? A lot of people think of FOMO as not wanting to miss out on fun stuff, the Twitter conversations, and the fun IG stories. For...

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:...

Why the Twitter Shadowban Matters…and Why It Doesn’t

The social media and content entities of the world work hard these days to lock out adult content. Either due to investor concerns about all that dirty, dirty sex littering their cash cow. Or it’s in an unconvincing attempt to “Think of the children!” WordPress, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, Patreon, and even the place many of us once thought safe for sex, Twitter, have crumbled and fallen to censorship and pretending sex is for “other people” instead of every (legal adult) fucking body on the planet. Since Twitter still allows an obscene (pun intended) amount of porn on its platform, my...
