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

Today we’re welcoming the brilliant Candy Snatch to our blog.

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.

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.
