episode 109 of the Smutlancers podcast on dread and procrastination

Dealing With That Thing You Really Don’t Want to Do

We’ve talked about procrastination in the past, and I’ve mentioned that when you feel it, there’s a reason for it. Sometimes it’s because you have to do a thing you don’t want to do — but you have to do it anyway. Or maybe you don’t. That’s what I’m talking about in this week’s podcast episode!

September 2020 Mailbag: Smutlancers Community Q&A Edition

We decided to use this month’s mailbag episode to answer questions asked in the Smutlancers community. In a relatively short amount of time, many questions were asked. For community members, they get an answer as soon as someone can reply — even if it’s not from Molly or Kayla.  For anyone curious about how helpful the Smutlancers community can be, here’s a peek into the “ask anything” channel in our Slack group.

Rebranding the Smutlancers

This week’s episode is a long time in coming, as are the changes you may be noticing around the website or on social media. In this episode, we announce the changes we’ve made as part of the Smutlancers rebrand — and we talk about what we did to make it happen.

episode 105 of the Smutlancers podcast

Everything is a Process

We almost never have an idea on Monday and reveal a fully fleshed out reality by Friday. It takes time and patience. Along the way, we need to recognize progress and successes as they occur, even if they don’t match the finished picture we have in our heads.

episode 104 of the Smutlancers podcast

Smutlancer Q&A: August 2020 Mailbag

Every month, Molly and I answer smutlancer questions in our mailbag episode. This month, we answer questions on where to pitch your writing, how to stay consistent, and how to apologize less often.

episode 103 of the Smutlancers podcast

Finding the Balance When You Can’t Keep Up

Keep up with what? It could be anything, but specific to our conversation, we refer to your (and our) to-do list, goals, work promised to clients, etc. The topic comes from a question Quinn Rhodes (ze/hir) asked us about maintaining a work-life balance when chronic conditions (like mental health) get in the way — without working seven days a week and burning yourself out (or making yourself worse).

episode 102 of the Smutlancers podcast

Picking a WordPress Theme

In this week’s episode, Molly and Michael talk about picking a WordPress theme for your site! This is an extremely important decision — but it can also be a difficult one. Whether your current site needs an update or you’re building a new site, give this episode a listen!

episode 101 of the Smutlancer Podcast

Collaborating In the Way That Works for You

This week’s episode is a mash-up of two ideas I thought I had strong opinions about: collaboration and hiring people to do the tasks you can’t or don’t want to do. As in past episodes, this is a look at my current experience and thinking on the topic, as well as (hopefully) a few useful tips.

episode 100 of the Smutlancers podcast

Smutlancers Q&A: July 2020 Mailbag

Every month we answer questions from Smutlancers on a variety of topics. This month, the questions went a bit deeper from navigating how to speak about (and stand-up for) more inclusivity in the sex blogging community to how to support causes that matter to you. (Also, it’s episode 100 but we had no idea when we recorded this!)
