My blog includes a few different types of post. In the early days, I wrote about my thoughts and opinions, and also shared photos. As the blog has developed, I have written about some of my experiences, which I love to share. I also write the occasional adult product review.
Ideas pop into my head quite randomly much of the time; I can wake up in the night and an idea can strike, or when I trying to concentrate on something quite unconnected, my mind will wander and a random blog idea will take over.
I took part in the Summer 100 bloggers’ challenge earlier this year for which I compiled a list of blog post ideas – most of which I haven’t yet written about. I’m not very disciplined at writing my ideas down, so many of my great ideas get forgotten almost immediately.
I do have a couple of ideas that are difficult for me to tackle, and which I find upsetting, so I haven’t yet found the courage to face them.
I must admit that my motivation and interest in blogging has been seriously lacking for the last few months due to life being very busy and stressful. And I never think that my blog is a priority in life, which is why it gets neglected. On a couple of occasions during the last few months, I have come close to deleting both the blog and my Twitter profile, as I felt I wasn’t contributing anything so what was the point in keeping them?
My blog became self-hosted in April this year, which meant an enormous amount of work and steep learning curve. I spent a lot of time learning about WordPress, so a kneejerk reaction in deleting it would be a waste of my hard work and the money I have spent.
I’m trying to be more disciplined and am creating the occasional new blog post in an attempt to get my blogging and Twitter mojo back.
How do you get inspiration? Who or what inspires what you post?
Reading posts by other bloggers is certainly an inspiration, as other peoples’ experiences often make you realise you have got a story to share that you may not have otherwise thought of.
Obviously, memes such as Wicked Wednesday, Food for Thought Friday, Boobday and Sinful Sunday are massively helpful in providing inspiration and provoking ideas. There are other equally as wonderful memes, but I listed those above as they are the ones I have tended to gravitate to.
How do you decide what to share, and why?
As I mentioned at the start of this post, I have written about many of my experiences, which I hope inspire some people, as well as providing a thrill to others. All of the experiences I have shared are completely true and no part has been embellished in any way. There have been negatives and low points in some of my experiences, and I feel it’s important to share these alongside the positives and good points.
One of the original reasons for creating the Miss Scarlet Twitter account was to share erotic and tasteful images, so that I could increase my body confidence and feel sexy and desirable for the first time in my life. I still enjoy sharing images and I’m still amazed that people seem to like them!
Just four years ago, I thought I would never have sex again, but creating my Twitter account and subsequently this blog paved the way for me to change my life, which bought experiences I would never have even dreamed of, such as threesomes, visiting swingers’ clubs and outdoor nude photography.
Over the three years that I have been writing my blog, I have had several emails and messages from people to say that subjects I have written about have inspired them to make changes in their own lives, or to tell me of their own experiences and issues. And of course, just to say they enjoy reading my posts. And, I always am so grateful that people take the time and effort to comment on my blog posts.
Knowing that my writing and photos bring pleasure, help and inspiration to others gives me a warm feeling and makes writing my blog extremely worthwhile.
