There are reasons why I am not blogging so much right now!

Hey team,

I am very aware that I have only posted one blog this month and it wasn’t intentional, but there are some lovely reasons why I haven’t been as regular with my posts as usual.

At the end of last year I was approached by a couple of businesses that wanted my content on their website/publications. First of all, I am the new Sex/Life editor for Diva – the national LBQ women’s magazine and they are paying me for the content I write – one article a month in their magazine and one article a month on their website. (Read here to find out why this is such a great thing for me to be a part of!)

Diva published my first articles in their January issue. My magazine article covered making more masturbating a New Year’s resolution, where I listed all of the health benefits. If you read my blog regularly, you will know how much I rave about it! The online article was the top 10 techniques for masturbation. You can have a read of it here.

The February articles will be coming out soon :-)

I am also writing for Ultimate Planet. I love Ultimate Planet – one of the two owners is an old friend from when I used to live in London and we have reconnected over the last few months and we managed to reach an agreement that suited the two of us, and I am now publishing an article on their website once a fortnight (every other Sunday). Here is the link to the first one!

Oh and on the Ultimate Planet note, I have been nominated for one of their awards, please vote for me!

So because of these two new and very exciting things, I hope that you can understand why I haven’t kept up to date with my blogs on here!

On top of all of this, I am still working at a paid job for a lot of the week because I am unable, yet, to take any money from the company to pay myself. Because of this, I have less time than I used to for when it came to writing up blog posts. I look forward to the day when I am making enough money to pay me! (massive hint for you lot to think about how you can support me by either buying something, booking a consultation or soiree, or recommending/shouting about me! Marketing this kind of business is horribly complicated and restricted!)

I did have a guest post lined up for last Friday about anal sex but they pulled out at the last minute and unfortunately I didn’t have the time to write one up myself.

I am not saying that this blog is going to stop existing. It is still very important to me that you can keep up with me and learn new stuff but it may not be as regularly as it has been. The good news is, though, that my career and my reputation is growing!

I am always on the look out for guest bloggers and suggestions of what I could write, so do get in touch.

To be notified of my next blog post, just head to the left of this post and click on ‘register’. It will ask you to give yourself a username and your email address then you will get an email when I post a new one!

Lots of love and pleasure to you all, have a lovely weekend xxx

Some VERY important news and you all need to take action!

Aaaand Happy new year, blah blah resolutions blah blah blah?

If I’m going to make this post a tedious link to resolutions, it will be ‘make it your resolution to support small Welsh businesses…specifically mine…and vote for me!’

And best of all, it will take less than 5 minutes and that’s one resolution achieved!

Could you all pop over to http://www.ultimate-planet.com/planet-services/ultimate-planet-awards/vote-2016-ultimate-planet-awards, scroll about halfway down to the ‘Positive Women’ theme, find the LBQ Business category, see That’s The Spot and give me a big tick?

You will need to give your name and email address but they are good people and do not spam! You don’t need to choose somebody for every award, so if you are not very familiar with the LBQ scene, do just vote for me in the LBQ business category and head to the bottom and click ‘cast your vote’. If you want to take the time to scroll through the awards and recognise any names, by all means, give them a vote!

I’m proper chuffed to be shortlisted for an award by Ultimate Planet – Ultimate Planet originates from London but is now taking over the UK! It is a community website for LBQ (Lesbian, Bi, Queer) women and it lists and discusses all things LBQ-related, be that from events to books to gigs. They also have their own awards! Ultimate Planet created the Ultimate Planet Awards to recognise, thank and promote the hard work from dedicated grass roots event organisers and community businesses who are committed to improving the lesbian, bi and queer scene. They are delighted to be able to show the love to all the women who work tirelessly to create a fun, safe, special scene and community for lesbian, bi and queer women in London, Brighton and beyond.

The awards started in 2013 and after the success of the first event  they have continued them each year. They continue to grow in popularity with the hashtag  #lesbianoscars and #planetawards

I have been shortlisted along with another 5 businesses and am happy to say I am the only Welsh entrant. They have up until recently been fairly London-centric (let’s be fair, the couple that run it also have full time jobs so there is only so much spare time available! I do truly admire the success of Planet London) so it is a great feeling for a one woman business from Cardiff get recognised. They have recently started working on going national though, and I am looking forward to getting more involved with them.

Being a business that promotes positive sex education, speaking openly about sex and preferences and also uses Welsh day to day, I think you will agree that, for the UK, this is a very niche business, This is why the award would mean so much to me if I were to win it – it will help put Wales on the Ultimate Planet map and show the English that Welsh is alive and kicking!

Remember – it will take up less than 5 minutes of your time xx

Diolch yn fawr am eich pleidlais ac eich gefnogiaeth, thank you for your vote an d your support.

The deadline for the votes is January the 31st, and the awards will be held in Spring time.

WISH ME LUCK (and share this post!)
