Some excerpts from blogging advice articles at Cara Sutra:

Secrets of Successful Sex Blogging

Connect with people who mention you, and don’t be afraid to delve into conversations online which interest you. Share what’s happened in your day, as long as it doesn’t cross your personal anonymity level. Describe your small frustrations and happiness at any small success. All of this, on a regular basis and between your automated updates, will help you make friends and establish you as a real person with shared interests to others in the sex blogging and writing community.

On Anonymity and Sex Blogging

Do you have concerns about your anonymity as a sex blogger? It’s understandable if so. Often there is more at stake than just consequences to yourself – what your family and friends will think if/when they find out, for one – and many sex bloggers have their own children of varying ages and access to the internet. It is not a decision to be taken lightly and without thought. 

A Blogger’s Guide To Using Images On The Internet

Images on the internet all have varying levels of copyright and acceptable use. Some images are allowed to be used along with appropriate accreditation, including those covered by the Creative Commons licence. Others are free to use without any attribution at all. You will find many beautiful images on the internet which you’re not allowed to use on your blog or elsewhere, as they are protected by the owner’s copyright. So… just because you’ve found the perfect image through Google Images, Flickr or elsewhere doesn’t mean you can pop it on your blog and everything’s hunky dory.

A Rant About Rants: Venting On Social Media

By Cara Sutra: I believe we all know people that we genuinely like – but wow, their social media updates really push our buttons. I know I do. And if you’re thinking it’s you, it’s probably not you. I’m talking about people who seem to spend the majority of their time venting on social media. It doesn’t seem to matter if it’s Twitter, Facebook or any other social media (does anyone even bother putting text updates on any other social media platform?) – their feed is just vent after wail after whinge after whine.
