Back to blogging and podcasting, one question we thought of is do you let the appropriate people know about your blog or podcast? When we say let people know, we mean people in the Lifestyle. Letting vanilla friends know is different topic all together. For example, if you have an online profile on Kasidie or another lifestyle site, should you have a link to your blog or podcast? Should you actively tell people you meet in the lifestyle at clubs, parties or online about your blog or podcast? There are pros and cons to this, and we have mixed feelings. We love getting emails from readers telling us they are enjoying our blog and they felt it was sexy or that it helped lead to a conversation about a topic.
We recently heard a podcast that had an interview with a couple that hosts house parties. After hearing them describe what they do, how they make their parties very classy, sexy, upscale, inviting, and safe (only those on the guest list are allowed in) we were intrigued to learn more. Turns out, after they mentioned their webpage and screen name on a lifestyle site, we realized that we had already 'friended' them since we are in the same general area. So on one hand, if they hadn't disclosed they had their webpage or host parties, we wouldn't have made the connection and realized who they were or known about their webpage.
If you have a podcast, there of course is a chance someone may recognize your voice at a party, club or in the vanilla world! Yikes!!!! We know some podcasters use tools to change the tones of their voices slightly. But there are some people we would love to meet in person if given the chance. If we are able to get down to Desire in Cancun someday, or another resort or club we would love to say hello to Kidder & Jade from Bath Talk Weekly, the cast from Life on the Swingset, or the lovely couple from The Swing Wife and JB & Kal from Swingin’ Around . Perhaps after listening or reading certain podcasts/blogs you tend to feel like your listening to mutual friends in the Lifestyle, especially when they touch on topics that are on your mind, you have been through or would like to be part of. So naturally some may want to say hello if given the chance to meet one day. However, some of the drawbacks may be if you have people in the lifestyle reading your blog or listening to your podcast, and you meet eventually at a club or party. Say you hit it off with them as a couple and end up flirting, touching, or even playing. The experience may be great and everyone is smiling and moaning by the end of the night. However, they may have a small fear that you may not be discreet in talking about your shared experiences together or they may not want you to blog (or podcast) about it all which is a reasonable request. It seems most people in the lifestyle understand that a big part of the lifestyle is the culture of common courtesy such as using discretion, mutual respect and of course privacy.
We aren’t talking about not promoting your blog or podcast. You have to encourage listeners to rate you on ITunes and readers to sign up or read your posts. Using tools such as Twitter, RSS Feeds and other social media is a great way to help get your message and story out to others. It seems the reality of most lifestyle blogs/podcasts is that most do it for the pleasure of something they enjoy doing as a couple and want to share their experiences with others. We aren't sure how many lifestyle bloggers or podcasters are getting rich in banner ads or product reviews? There isn’t anything wrong with trying to taking an ad to help pay for web hosting, T-Shirts, equipment, etc. But it seems those that blog/podcast do it for the pure enjoyment of it.
What are your thoughts? Should one disclose their blog/podcast when meeting people in person or online? Play it by ear depending on the situation? Should you wait until you feel more comfortable with the people you meet? Is each situation different?
Let us know your thoughts.
We assure everyone, that when we play this song on date night and after a couple glasses of wine, Mrs. Swanilla turns into something else! Sometimes Mr. Swanilla can't keep up and is just thrown to the bed and just has to lay there and take it as Mrs. Swanilla has her way with him and just rides his cock until we both are covered in wetness!
