What do you know about SEO (search engine optimisation)? How about the best way to use images on your blog? What exactly is meta data and what are alt tags? Which are the best plug-ins to use with your blog? How do you go about setting up and then using social media accounts to best promote your brand and your blog? These questions and more are covered in this blogging advice area of my own blog.

There are articles for sex bloggers at all stages of their blogging journey, from before you even have a blog or pen name through to how to get sex toys to review (if that’s what you want to do), which blogging memes are available for you to take part in each week and how to sell advertising on your sex blog.

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.
