Ok, I could have said blogiversary but it’s a terrible word (also I’m never sure how to spell it). ;p
WordPress just informed me that today is my one year anniversary. On this day in 2014 I wrote my first post. In it I talked about being a geekgirl, and how I wanted to use this blog as a place to develop myself. A safe place where I could explore who I was, and what that meant. Where I could hopefully re-find my self-confidence.
A year on I think I am doing those things, I am a work in progress and I love being here. As well as everything else I have done with this blog, the biggest thing for me was starting to write erotica. Which lead to my first story being published earlier this month in the anthology, Tie Me Up. Being a published writer is a huge deal for me. I’ve wanted to write since I first held a pencil, and knowing I am working to do what I always wanted is an amazing feeling.
The sex-blogging community is mostly very welcoming and inclusive, and I have been very lucky to become a part of it. I wouldn’t be here without;
- Girl on the Net, whose blog (and book) introduced me to the world of sex blogging.
- Exhibit A who encouraged my writing and blogging back at the beginning when I was still unsure.
- Oleander whose writing always inspires me and who helped and supported me when I was unsure about my work.
- And last but certainly not least F Dot Leonora who not only read some of my uni fiction and helped me edit it but who read my erotic story and published it in her book. Thank you.
I know most people make a big deal of their blog anniversaries, and I wish I had realised it was coming up so I could have planned something better but it just sort of crept up on me, and I currently have no money, so can’t afford to do a giveaway of any sort. Hopefully I will be better organised and in a better position for my two-year anniversary.
Thank you to everyone out there who reads what I write. I would write anyway for me but my followers are what makes this the experience it is.
Also, a special thank you to the follower who sent me the Bravissimo e-gift card. It was very much appreciated.
