I was really excited when I reached my 100th follower on this blog some time around its one-year anniversary. It’s somewhere around 130 now. Over on FetLife, where all this got started, I have a lot of interaction in comments and likes, but here the stats are pretty moderate. Once in a while something I post here will take off (I think because it gets posted to a facebook group) like when I write about poly stuff, or post one of my social justice rants.
But usually it’s pretty quiet ’round these parts.
So when I started noticing an uptick in my visitor stats and clicked through to one of the referrer links, I was shocked and delighted to see that Mrs. Fever had included my blog in her nominations for consideration as one of the top 100 Sex Blogs through Molly’s Daily Kiss’ annual contest.
I felt a little bit like this guy:
Earlier today I was drafting a post trying to convey how much I love that video, and at the same time how wistful I am that I rarely have reactions like that over things. Over experiences? Totally…like when my partner agreed to dress up like a scary clown and fuck me.
I might potentially have a similar reaction if someone were to, oh…I don’t know…send me a surprise high-quality anal hook.
Anyway, I’m thrilled, and grateful that anybody reads this blog at all. For someone like Mrs. Fever, (who, by the way has previously been selected as one of the Top 100 Sex Bloggers), to show that kind of favor toward me is really….well, gratifying.
And seeing this little wordpress.com site listed up with all those other …you know, blogs with dedicated URLs makes me feel a little bit like the hometown gal who just showed up to her first big-city party.
Thanks, y’all 🙂
