In my last Smut Marathon blog post I mentioned that I had discovered lots of new blogs to enjoy through entering the contest. In response to that post someone asked if I would point my readers in the direction of these wonderful bloggers I’ve discovered so that they could visit their sites and enjoy them too.
#SoSS Saturday seems a brilliant time to champion some of my Smut Marathon favourites, both those that are still active in the contest and those who are no longer competing. I have included their ‘about me’ from the Smut Marathon website, so you can read in their own words what they are all about.
With a passion for increasing sexual confidence, Aurora is obsessed with all things sex. From sex toys to fetish; kink to erotica and everything in between. It all gets featured on her blog, with honesty, positivity and a slight sprinkling of sarcasm. A great collector of toys, Aurora reviews her way through the best and the worst the sex toy industry has to offer. Her blog was featured in both the 2017 Kinkly top 100 and MollysDailyKiss top 100.
Charlie Powell is a sex blogger and erotica writer who tends to spend much more time writing about bath oil, notebooks and wine than she does about sex. As well, as Twitter, she can be found on Instagram.
I run Forbidden Writings, where I post my own short stories as well as in-depth articles on various kinks and lifestyles. I’ve been actively writing for the past year or two, and am in love with the erotica genre. I honestly can’t imagine doing anything else (aside from my day job).
I have loved literature of all types but it is only recently that I have discovered erotica. Well it seemed to find me and we have been enjoying each others company for the last few months. Years ago I used to work in theatre and television though when I was at school I was told a career in a bank was the job for me. I’m glad I didn’t listen to the advice as I am useless with numbers and the roar of the crowd and smell of greasepaint was much more to my taste. Now I am enjoying writing erotica with a similar relish.

Isabelle is a blogger and writer of erotica. She is passionate about sex education and her stories will feature clear consent. When she is not working her full time job or writing, Isabelle enjoys spending time with her husband and kids.
Happily polyamorous writer of paranormal erotic and all manner of delicious smut.
Kinky, geeky, and queer; I’ve become an avid writer of erotica since starting my blog in 2015. Initially I wanted to do only sex toy reviews and more serious pieces, but I had a hard time breaking into those topics so sex stories became a part of my writing process and I like to think I’m good at it. I live in the northeastern U.S. with my loving partner of several years and an adorable (and tailless) cat that thinks he is a toddler. When I’m not writing or reading I enjoy baking, crocheting, and being involved in my local roller derby league. Any questions? You can contact me on Twitter.
Happily married, submissive house wife. Welcome to my crazy little world! Bi, poly, little, Kinky AF and lover of life. I live with my husband / Dom, and his 3 other female subs, who are also my playmates! (Babe, Kitten and little bear.) Blogging about my life, loves and the odd kinky story a long the way!
I’m a woman who’s kept my sexy side bubbling under my whole life. I love to chat about sex, relationships and kinks, it intrigues me and gives an illicit thrill, but it also makes me realise how much more open-minded and adventurous I am than most of the folk I know. Well, that was true until I joined the community of people blogging about sex, I’ve found my team at last!
I’ve always enjoyed reading erotica – I started with Victorian underground texts and lads mags. Later I read books like Black Lace and downloaded adult novels onto my Kindle, so having discovered sites like Literotica, I expanded my reading tastes to sex in many genres and exploring kinks.
I’ve been ‘sex’ blogging for a year (having run a book reviewing blog for 5 years) but I’m not very technically minded, so my site isn’t flash and I’m very new to Twitter. I also use Google+ to promote posts when I create them. I call my loyal followers my Dark Darlings and some write me lovely comments and feedback.
One of my most exciting achievements is when both women and men write positive remarks about my erotic writing. Being heterosexual I think I know what turns men on, but I feel validated to discover I know what turns women, bi-sexual or pansexual folk on too.
One of my disappointments is that I cannot boast to friends or family when I have successes with my erotic writing. Only a few friends know what I do – to most people I am a mother, an administrator, a crazy dog lady and an avid reader.
My mother was a writer, and I’m sure she’d support what I do if she were still around. She was very open minded and even toyed with writing erotica herself at one point. Currently I’m trying to get her unpublished work into a public domain, and in doing so I’ve discovered she wrote quite ‘saucy’ passages in her novels!
I’m not apologetic about my erotic writing, I’m actually energised by doing it and proud of what I create, but I keep my Posy persona discreet for the sake of my immediate family’s privacy.
I’m Violet, sole author of Fire & Honey. I consider myself both loquacious and voracious when it comes to erotica. I particularly enjoy the interplay of mind and body, where the corporeal meets the cerebral and I truly believe our brains are our hottest sex organs.

These are just my particular favourites, don’t forget we started with a list of 75 participants. While she is not writing for the Smut Marathon, I would also like to give a special mention to Marie A. Rebelle who has and continues to work harder than I think we can imagine to make the Smut Marathon happen.
I hope you enjoy discovering these wonderful blogs as much as I have and don’t forget to get involved in Share our Shit Saturday. You can follow #SoSS on Twitter and use the hashtag for any blog post you write sharing the sex positive blog posts you love.
