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.

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.

Social Media Filters & Other Ways To Stay Calm On Twitter & Facebook

By Cara Sutra:
Social media can be intense at the best of times. As this certainly isn’t the best of times, social platforms have fast become hot hubs of fear-mongering, panic and the high emotion that comes with them. For those who need to use social media like Twitter & Facebook as part of their job – or those who just have the 21st century addiction – it can be near impossible to visit socials and remain unaffected by the constant stream of negativity.

Despair Over The Stench Of A Presidential Trump

By Cara Sutra:
Shocked. Devastated. Emotionally drained. Physically wiped-out. Like many other people, I’m feeling the effects of a particularly grim year. We’ve lost so many creative, courageous and inspiring people from the world of media and the arts. The world barely has time to move on from one catastrophic happening before another tragedy, natural or man-made, strikes, bringing death but also terror and fear-inspired divisions among those left alive.

Lovehoney Moves Affiliate Scheme From Paid on Results To Webgains

By Cara Sutra:
The big news this week has got to be Lovehoney’s move from Paid on Results affiliate platform to Webgains. This was a huge blow for many affiliates, who like myself have written numerous posts and reviews containing PoR links – as well as all the social media updates out here containing PoR links too. Once the Paid on Results Lovehoney programme ends, those links will all be broken – leading nowhere, affecting blogs, readers, traffic numbers and of course, affiliate commissions.

You Don’t Have To Pay Creative Freelancers Who Love Their Job (& Other Bullshit Myths)

By Cara Sutra:
Inexplicably, when you’re freelance/run your own business/work from home/work in a creative niche such as professional blogging, copywriting or marketing, some businesses feel that paying you for your work is just an option, not a requirement. Requesting payment for skilled creative work such as marketing and copywriting can give rise to attitudes anywhere from surprise and reluctance, to offence and flat refusal.

I Don’t Feel Sexy Enough To Write A Sex Blog

By Cara Sutra:
The sex blog genre is full of people writing about top shelf sexy stuff, whether it’s their real life sex diaries or articulating mind-blowingly hot fantasies conjured by their beautifully perverse imaginations. But even when sex bloggers aren’t writing, they’re busy bonking super sexy strangers all day and posting pictures of their gorgeous bodies on social media for the world to admire. Right?

What’s it really like being a mother and a sex toy tester?

Being a mum is a hard enough job in itself, but mothers around the world take on a second job for a variety of reasons. Adding ‘sex toy tester’ to your CV might seem a strange choice, but what better balance to the challenging nature of motherhood than the pursuit of pleasure? I see more and more women balancing being a mum and a sex toy tester all the time, and as you can probably tell from this blog, I’m a sex toy tester myself. I’m also a mama to two beautiful boys.
