Why Authenticity Matters SL013
This week, after an unplanned for hiatus, I’m back and it’s time to discuss being authentic when you’re online and why it matters. Short answer? It helps build an audience, a brand, and ultimately, a business that earns you money. In this episode: Pardon the absence. Blame tech troubles. I went on a Twitter rant […] The post Why Authenticity Matters SL013 appeared first on The Smutlancer.

3 Things You Need for Your Website SL009
As someone trying to earn money and build a career off of the sexy, smutty stuff you make, your website must work. While you can’t prevent crashes (or most of them), there are things and people you can have to help you survive them. When my own website crashed this week, I was reminded of […] The post 3 Things You Need for Your Website SL009 appeared first on The Smutlancer.
Ignoring Your Critics and Getting Better at What You Do SL008
This week I went on a rant (it’s kind of my thing) about ignoring your critics – even your own inner critic – and doing your thing. We all start somewhere and we all get better with time. It’s easy for someone to sit on the outside and say you did it wrong, but much […] The post Ignoring Your Critics and Getting Better at What You Do SL008 appeared first on The Smutlancer.
Why Community Matters SL007
After talking about friendships in episode 6, the sex blogging community as a whole is on my mind. Cultivating friendships is important but being a part of the community, even in a small way, matters just as much. In this episode: Communities remind us we’re not completely solitary. We might not all be besties but […] The post Why Community Matters SL007 appeared first on The Smutlancer.
Why Friendship is Important When You’re a Smutlancer SL006
Over the weekend I read a book called A Secret Sisterhood: The Literary Friendships of Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, and Virginia Woolf. While it was a fascinating look at a forgotten or ignored part of literary history, it also got me thinking about how important friendship is to the smutlancing life. In this […] The post Why Friendship is Important When You’re a Smutlancer SL006 appeared first on The Smutlancer.
The Compare and Contrast Thing We All Do SL005
In episode 5, I discuss a bad habit that a lot of creative people have – and as a sex blogger, I know I do it. We compare ourselves to others and decide there’s something wrong with us. Sometimes the insecurity of jealousy makes us not like the other person but most often, we find […] The post The Compare and Contrast Thing We All Do SL005 appeared first on The Smutlancer.
Interview with Kink Craft
I promised interviews with companies, brands, and websites that publish sex writing and other creative content, and I meant it. For the first interview, I talked to Andrew and Pixie from Kink Craft in the UK. What began as a professional relationship between writer and company has grown into a genuine friendship between us. Hear […] The post Interview with Kink Craft appeared first on The Smutlancer.

Now that the holidays are over, it’s time for a new episode. This week, let’s talk about shame and vulnerability that occurs in sex and when we create content – whether it’s about sex or not.

You’ve Got to Show Up SL002
Episode two is all about showing up and putting in the work. It was recorded during sex blogger list season but the principles apply all year long.

What is a Smutlancer? SL001
In the very first episode of The Smutlancer podcast, I try to answer one simple question…what the hell is a smutlancer? And also, what you can expect from this podcast. In this episode: What is a smutlancer? What you can expect from this podcast Creating content and getting paid Talking about sex, kink, relationships, gender, […] The post What is a Smutlancer?
