You've written a fantastic sex toy review, covering all aspects of the product. Or perhaps it's for lube, lingerie or bondage gear. The fact is, you've managed to put together a thorough review that you're sure will help others understand the product before spending their hard-earned cash on it. Now, where should you publish this review that you're rather proud of?
It’s no use sitting gazing at a blank document for hours on end if the words simply aren’t coming. It could be that a short break will revive your creative juices (I find a shower or a bite to eat helps on these occasions) but other times it will just be that today is not a writing day. Every day is a writing day, ideally, but we don’t live in an ideal world. It’s time we were big enough and brave enough to admit that we can’t be the best version of ourselves absolutely every single day. We all have down days, off days and days when our brains just don’t work as they should. Accept it and use the time to do something else, something positive, while your creativity restores in the background.
...they may be a link directory themselves or a certain type of porn site - and I don’t want Google to see my site as being in the same class as www.bigbustymilfs.xxx, www.nakedbukkakequeens.com or www.pervertedpuppiescrushedtesticles.net when I am trying to rank for erotic writing, industry copywriting and/or sex toy reviews from a professional perspective.

As a sex toy reviewer, there may come a time when you can't provide the promised review in a reasonable time-frame. Or perhaps you feel that actually, you now can't complete a product review at all.
By Mel MacFarlane: I began a brand new business venture and declared that I couldn’t write about sex toys forever. However, when push came to shove, I found that I couldn’t walk away from sex toy reviewing because it’s a part of my life that I absolutely love.
1. Do not use wysiwyg website or blog creators! They make you look instantly cheap and tacky from the outset, as well as incredibly amateur. If you are serious about your website and presence...
Pleasure Panel Program Change: Now Exclusively For Patrons In recent months –and I mean from well before Christmas 2017- I have been considering how to ensure that the popular and beneficial Pleasure Panel program continues. Right now the...
An area of sex blogging I get asked about a lot is selling advertising. How? When to start? How much to charge? How do I 'live the dream' and make money from writing about sex? This is a huge subject and to be honest, as one of and quite possibly the first sex blogger in the UK to sell on-site advertising to the adult industry I’ve made it up as I go along. There, I said it.
witter is a fantastic FREE way to reach potentially millions of people’s eyeballs – with YOUR words. I hope you all find this beginner's guide to Twitter useful. It's certainly a great social media platform for marketing! But be wary – be over zealous on the marketing and not enough on the effervescent twitter personality and people will get bored and ‘unfollow’ you – in the worst case they’ll start to complain (and we all know complaints spread much faster than compliments!). It’s all like a big game of Sims, or Theme Twitter.... They’re your people, look after them, entertain them, don’t depress them – then when they love you, use that to your advantage to SELL SELL SELL. Ha!
Welcome to my new Sex Blogger School series! I get asked a lot of questions about being a sex blogger, and about sex toy testing, so I’ve decided to share some of those answers with you here at the blog.
Always disclose that you received the product free of charge from the company in exchange for a fair, honest and unbiased review. Make sure that your thoughts and feelings are expressed in terms of your own opinion and based on your own experience. For instance instead of stating that product x is ‘unsuitable for all women as it’s entirely rubbish’, you may instead choose to write that product x ‘didn’t work for me and I can think of many ways in which it could be improved to suit me personally’.
The beautiful thing about copywriting for the industry, is that the longer you're involved, the more contacts you make and the wider your social and blog reach becomes. In addition, you become a lot more educated over time, about a great variety of sexual and adult products related matters. All of this combines to become a very valuable resource to both established and startup companies who wish to hire the expertise and digital marketing skills of an industry specialist freelancer.
Following on from this call for BlogSpot at the ETO Show 2016 sponsors, I'm very happy to announce the several companies and fellow bloggers who have come forwards with support for this exciting project. Thank you so much - you're making a bigger and better BlogSpot possible for everyone.
As a blogger, you will eventually come across the terms dofollow and nofollow. They relate to website links. What's the difference between dofollow (aka simply follow) and nofollow links? Does it really matter which type you use? How do you specify which of them any one link is – and when should you make a link nofollow?
Many websites and businesses create lists like this, which can be anything from a simple list of linked blog names to a more detailed article with a brief blurb on each blogger. It's natural to feel proud of the recognition and respect you've earned by making a company's best sex blogger list.
Working in the adult industry I see my fair share of explicit photos. Dick pics: amateur and porn star. Naked breasts: pendulous to Parisienne. Spread vulva: hairless to hirsute. I follow blogs and social media where imagery from artistic nudes to hardcore porn are welcomed, celebrated and shared. So why do some explicit photos anger me so much? Well sometimes, explicit photos are a breach of consent.
Although not every sex blogger wants to write about or even use sex toys, they remain a popular topic in the sex blogging world. The vast array of designs and styles makes them interesting and collectable - plus, of course, they're fun to use! Testing then reviewing sex toys also gives you something else to write about at your new blog. It's no wonder that many new bloggers soon ask the question, "How do sex bloggers get free sex toys to review?"
