Sex writing: how I made my Eroticon ticket pay for itself

Today we’re welcoming the brilliant Candy Snatch to our blog. Regular readers will know how obsessed I am with the financial side of sex writing – specifically trying to ensure that those who attend Eroticon can get enough advice/tips/contacts from us that they can cover the cost of their ticket. Well – Candy Snatch has done just that. And she’s here to tell you how… I remember when I first saw an...

Sex blog stats: do your visits and pageviews matter?

Sex blog stats: do your visits and pageviews matter?

This sounds like a practical question: do your sex blog stats matter in the course of you running a blog? What can they do for you, and which ones are the most important to pay attention to? In reality, it’s also a bit of a philosophical question: do they matter, on a personal level, to you? I am a giant stats nerd. I am utterly obsessed with my traffic, and more than happy to swap stats info with people who want it, because I...

Talk notes Eroticon 2017: Pitching 101 with Girl on the Net

A couple of people have asked me for my talk slides, so here they are along with a few notes/a summary of the talk. Pitching is often incredibly hard. Hard like homework, and not always fun. Especially if you’re shy/anxious, pitching can be a huge hurdle to overcome. So sometimes it helps to think a bit more like a salesperson. You (and your ideas) are a product you’re trying to sell. Step away from it a little bit and...
