Ever wanted to start your own sex blog? I don’t blame you – it’s really fun. Every now and then people email me and ask how to start one, so in lieu of a guest blog this week (I’m behind on guest blog editing, really sorry – if you’ve sent me one bear with me and I’ll get back to you asap!) I thought I’d put my top tips for starting a sex blog in one handy place. So without further ado, here are some frequently asked questions about starting a sex blog, along with my answers and advice.
If you have any more questions, stick ’em in the comments and I’ll try and add to this when new things come up.
UPDATE 2018: The absolute best way to learn about sex blogging is to come and hang out with sex bloggers. We’re a shy bunch, though, so it’s hard. But the one guaranteed way to meet us and suck all the wisdom out of our pervy brains is to come along to Eroticon – a 2-day event held in Camden on March 17th/18th 2018. This was the conference that helped take me from hobbyist sex blogger to full-time peddler of filth. Meanwhile, below are my top tips on starting a sex blog.
When your sex blog grows beyond a certain point, you’ll get people asking questions like “are you making money from sex blogging?” and “have you given up your day job yet?”
As you might have noticed, I’m not the most visual person. I am better with words than pictures, and if you tell me that a particular website design is ‘slick’ or ‘pretty’ I am less likely to agree than to shoot you a look of confusion and then point out a typo somewhere.
However, my publisher has designers who have made some beautiful things to help me promote my book. If you would one of these things – you can win an iPad cover, beautifully customised (on the left) – just subscribe to my blog via the box in the top right-hand corner, and they’ll give it to one of my subscribers picked at random.
If you don’t have an iPad, subscribe anyway – you’ll get an email alert when I add new blogs, and you’ll also get notified when my book comes out.
While I’m in the self-promotion wagon, if you are brave/unashamed of reading sex blogs, you can also like me on facebook.
