Deciding If It’s Time to Quit Your Day Job

12/5/2018
More
This week’s topic was inspired by a conversation I recently had with Amy Norton of Coffee and Kink. How do you know when it’s the right time to quit your day job and become a full time smutlancer? I wish there was an easy answer, but life is never that simple. This is a really […] The post Deciding If It’s Time to Quit Your Day Job appeared first on The Smutlancer.

Finding Your Own Path

More
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 […] The post Finding Your Own Path appeared first on The Smutlancer.

Thanksgiving is nearly here for the U.S., and it’s a time when many of us start thinking about what we’re thankful for.

Getting Paid as a Smutlancer

11/7/2018
More
We spend a lot of time, as smutlancers, saying that we should be paid for our work, and that’s completely true. But once you’ve secured the agreement for payment, there’s still a lot of work to be done — and a lot of ways where things can go wrong. Deserving payment is one thing, but […] The post Getting Paid as a Smutlancer appeared first on The Smutlancer.

Feedback, Advice, and Helping Each Other Out

10/31/2018
More
I’ve benefited greatly from the feedback of my audience, the advice of other bloggers, and simply being told about things I might not have seen otherwise. While a lot of “advice” has to be taken with a grain of salt, some feedback and offers to share thoughts and ideas really can help us all.

Why Both Patience and the Hustle and Grind are Important

10/17/2018

Some people will tell you to be patient as you work towards your smutlancing goals. Others will say you need to hustle and grind.

I’m not gonna lie. This week’s episode has me feeling vulnerable and emotional. It’s also longer than normal. Basically, my imposter syndrome is all over the damn place.

8/22/2018
More
I’m back from a convention that wasn’t about business but purely about fun. Even though I’m going through con-drop, I’m also re-evaluating my relationship with social media. Not just as a private individual, but also as someone who wants to make a career online. I have no answers in this week’s episode. Only questions for […] The post Social Media Use and Presence — How Much is Enough? SL030 appeared first on The Smutlancer.

We All Start at the Bottom SL029

8/15/2018

This week’s episode is a bit rambling, likely a lot ranty, and in my defense, I was tired, lol. Okay so that’s not a good reason, but it’s one of those weird topics where I don’t want anyone to feel discouraged, but the truth might hurt. No one makes their top price when they get […] The post We All Start at the Bottom SL029 appeared first on The Smutlancer.

When the Motivation Just Isn’t There SL027

8/1/2018
More
Anyone who tries to tell you that you have to feel motivated to work towards your dreams and goals all the time is probably full of BS. Sometimes motivation is in short-supply. The options are to push forward anyway or to take a break until you’re ready to start again. Both are valid options — […] The post When the Motivation Just Isn’t There SL027 appeared first on The Smutlancer.

When Your Mind Lies to You SL026

In this week’s episode, I talk about imposter syndrome and anxiety and about how our brains can make us believe things that aren’t true for a lot of other reasons. Mental illness is very real.

I’m one of those cheerful, optimistic, and determined people that doesn’t talk much about quitting. Mostly because I’ll (usually) do everything in my power to avoid it. But sometimes, the best choice you can make for yourself, your goals, and your sanity is to quit what isn’t working.
