I’ve delayed myself in writing this a few days as I have needed time to think about what I wanted to say, and how I wanted to say it. I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, or you’re noticing at this very moment, that badge over to the right of this post. (Probably not, if you’re reading this on mobile) As of a few days ago, I was placed on the list of Top 100 Sex Blogs of 2018, and it has really offset a series of mixed feelings I’ve been having recently about this whole thing I have been working on over the past 2 years I’ve been writing for Forbidden Writings. If you’ll indulge me.
After a long entry period for the Round 3 assignment, the window for entries is closed, and the voting round has begun. Following all of my fellow entrants, I’ve watched as many of them have scrambled to come up with a good story to enter. Given the standards by which our previous entries were judged, we were all justifiably worried about whether or not our work would stand out before the judges.
Good evening beautiful people! I just wanted to write a quick post today about something new I’m adding to Forbidden Writings. If you didn’t know, I have more hobbies than just writing about sex. I also have a lot of skills in media creation as well. You may notice up in the header menu, there’s a new option called ‘Services’. Don’t get too excited, I’m not offering those kinds of services.
I want to take this moment to say, first off, that all of you who follow me, signed up for my email list, speak to me on social media, sent me story requests, or just regularly stop by to read what I have; you guys are some of my favorite people. It’s because of you guys that I’m motivated to keep doing what I do here on Forbidden Writings, despite what pitfalls I’ve had in my life this past year. When I started this site on Wordpress more than two years ago, I didn’t think I’d still be doing it today. I was almost positive this would just become another blog that disappeared when I realized no one would want to read it. Was I ever so wrong.
Not long ago, I made a decision to finally invest into this site, and into my own writing, and bought a domain for my blog. I made the decision after mulling it over the last few days. I thought to myself, I don’t exactly have a large following, nor do I post as often as many other bloggers do. I’ve looked at a few other blogs, from writers who have been doing this much longer than I have, and tried to see what’s working for them. Things I may not be doing myself.
