Some House Keeping, Sort Of
I’d like to say something about why I disappear from Cuntlove once in a while. There are a few reasons why I go through periods of not posting as much. For one, I’ve been doing freelance blogging for two different adult industry blogs for the last year or so, and it’s sometimes difficult to write about sex positive issues after writing about sex all day, which brings me to my second reason.
Sometimes, I don’t feel like writing about anything that pertains to Cuntlove’s theme(s). When I first started this blog, I wanted it to fit into a particular niche… I wanted it to be all sex positive, educational, feminist, and let’s all love ourselves, etc, etc, and while all those things are still important to me, I sometimes feel like I’ve written myself into a box.
I’ve won a couple blogging awards of the sexiest blog type, and I feel that if I don’t keep writing about sex I’ll somehow be disappointing people. When I first started reading about blogging, I read a couple of articles that said it was important to pick a niche and to stick with it, so as to not alienate your readers.
It’s good advice, it makes sense. The people who come here to read posts about female ejaculation might not like reading about that time I felt sad because my ex is dating someone new, and the people who like my more personal posts might get annoyed when I write about pornstar Bobbi Starr and her pubes.
The thing is, I can’t make everyone happy. I can only write what I feel like writing about at the time.
In the beginning, writing Cuntlove was freeing, because I didn’t have a sense of what people expected from me as a writer, as a blogger, I could do anything. Now, I think about “oh no, what if my aunt reads this” or “what if this post falls below expectations.”
It’s enough of that, I say. No more second guessing. I can only be myself! It’s the best any of use can do. Sure, I’m insecure sometimes, but I’m willing to put it all out there, to put myself on the line for better or worse. Balls out so to speak. No more house limit.
