Silence Is Golden … Unless You Have A Blog

IMG_9693Long time, no blog post! I am still here though and I hope to commence with business as usual very soon. Before I do though I’d like to share a short post with you about where I’ve been and why my poor blog has been neglected.

At the end of April I saw an advert in a local tattoo studio looking for a new body piercer. While I wasn’t at the time a body piercer by trade, I felt that my interest in them in previous years combined with my recent foray into needle play, might just be enough knowledge to get me started with the guidance of someone who knew a little more about it.

As part of my message of interest in the position I explained that I was involved in BDSM and how that includes needle play, and I think it’s safe to say this is the one and only time in my life that being a pervert has landed me a job.

IMG_9842Offering body piercing is fairly new to my studio, and in a town that is inundated with tattoo and piercing studios it is taking time to get ourselves well known as offering this service. Which means I need to find another way to supplement my income.

After doing some little doodles for my colleague who is the lead tattoo artist, she suggested that I do a tattoo apprenticeship. I’ll admit I initially turned her kind offer down. I am extremely passionate about people getting good tattoos, and I honestly felt like I wouldn’t be good enough to make that happen for someone. As time went on though, I started thinking of little designs and I decided that I’d love to be in a position to share them with others.IMG_9994

With that my tattoo apprenticeship began.

That new adventure is the reason for my blog being so quiet. Not only do I have a lot to learn when I’m at work, when I’m at home I am practising my drawing, thinking up new designs and to be honest sleeping a lot more. I am thoroughly knackered. Not only have my working hours increased a fair bit, I am adjusting to a new routine and sucking up a whole range of new knowledge and skills. It is a tiring business. Add that to the fact I am still needed for school runs and general day to day parenting, as well as wanting to see Bakji when I can and do kinky things too. There really hasn’t been much spare time for me to dedicate to writing.

I haven’t abandoned the blog though. I’ll hopefully get back into the swing of things soon. Myself and Bakji are having a kinky day soon to celebrate his birthday and I am very much hoping that is blog worthy, so stay tuned for more information on that.

 

IMG_9997While they are not perfect, and when I look at them all I can see is how they could be perfect, I would like to share my efforts so far with you. All the tattoos that are pictured throughout this piece of writing are my own work. Both designs and tattooing, with the exception of the Triskele.

Thank you to everyone who is still here, patiently wondering if I’ve dropped off the face of the earth. You are all wonderful and I can’t wait to write some sexy things for you to enjoy. I’m going to spend my morning catching up on this weekends Sinful Sunday posts, and check in with Masturbation Monday and Wicked Wednesday too. Because I’ve missed having the time to check in with your blogs as well.

#SoSS – Wicked Masturbation!

IMG_6998Apologies for being behind on these #SoSS posts lately. May was a bit of a manic month for me. My first ever holiday with Bakji, to the wonderful New York City, a new job, the loss of my beautiful little cat and half term means I’ve been rallying hard to just keep the changes in routine from setting my anxiety skyrocketing.

It’s June now though and perhaps that is a good time to start a fresh, treasure my May memories and let the tough times go somewhat. I think a great way to start June of right is by sharing some truly sexy blog posts with you.

#SoSS – Therapy, Fucking and … More Fucking!

IMG_6992Monday brought me my first, ‘well that’s a #SoSS post’ moment when I read The Therapist by Karin at theswingshift. This week saw me starting to share some of my experiences with mental health, part of which details how I never quite succeeded in sticking with therapy. That isn’t because I don’t value it though, I absolutely do, especially when as Kinksters we find an understanding and supportive therapist. I don’t know Karin personally, only through the post I’ve read on her blog, that didn’t stop me thoroughly touched though at her thoughts on finding and visiting a therapist.

Smut Marathon: Round 2 Is Upon Us

As the voting ended for the first round of Smut Marathon and the results were revealed, I don’t think I was alone in having the following thoughts: 1. How have I done?, 2. What feedback will I get? And 3. What is the next assignment going to be? You can read my thoughts on points one and two in Smut Marathon Round 1: The Votes Are In. This post will cover my thoughts so far on point three and the assignment we have now received.

Once again as per the rules I can’t share with you what the assignment is. I can tell you though that when I open the email containing our instructions I was genuinely excited. I think it is a great assignment. It is one that my brain feels ready to attack due to some previous writing tasks I have engaged in. If the last round taught me anything though it’s that being prepared and feeling proud of your entry doesn’t actually mean you will do well. I’m also pleased with the creativity it allows for. While still challenging us to hone skills that we may not have perfected, or even to gain skills we don’t yet have.

#SoSS – Shared Joy is Double Joy

I follow lots of blogs, but I have never managed to keep track of any of that, for that I apologise, especially if I’m missing out on wonderful posts. It’s part of the reason I enjoy social media, because I get pointed in the direction of good things by those I follow. Another way I enjoy finding good reads is writing memes like Masturbation Monday, Wicked Wednesday and Kink of the Week.

#SoSS – Share Our Shit Saturday (on Sunday)

I’ve been following and re-tweeting #SoSS (Share our Shit Saturday) for a little while now, but this is the first time I’ve joined in with my own post. If you would like to know more about the movement amongst bloggers then please read the awesome post by ErosBlog for the lowdown.

As much as I love supporting and championing other bloggers, especially those that writeIMG_6383 about kink, sex and other things much of the world still deems inappropriate for grown adults to discuss online, I am often terrible as getting round to reading as many posts as I’d like to. However with my recent decision to get involved in the Smut Marathon, I’ve found myself carving out more time to visit other writers and I want to share some of the posts I’ve read this week.

Episode 51 – Sex Toys with Aurora Glory

Aurora Glory joins us for this episode. Yes that is right, we have a guest with us again. We were delighted to have the chance to chat to Aurora, about everything from sex toys, to lube and of course blogging.

We start off this episode with a very important question. That you won’t want to miss. A long and earth shattering debate is finally put to rest. Want to know more, then you will have to listen in. Once that is cleared up though we move onto the juicy stuff .. sex toys. We ask Aurora how she got started with reviewing sex toys, and how that led to her starting a blog.

Floss has got her own fair share of sex toys nestled away in the bedroom, and wondered if she was alone in her favourite not being the high-quality toys people usually mentions a favourites. Turns out she is alone in this. Aurora’s favourite toy is definitely one of the higher quality and well recommended toys. One that Floss doesn’t have but is keen to get.

While we all know sex toys are more popular than ever, and rightly so. There do seem to be some other things that still aren’t the norm to use when it comes to masturbating and for sexual encounters with a partner, and one of those things is lube. We talk to Aurora about what it is she loves about reviewing lube, and discuss why it is that so many people still aren’t regular users.

The day before we spoke to Aurora her blog turned one! So we obviously couldn’t let the conversation pass without having a chat about her blog too. We discussed what inspired her to start a blog, whether or not it has been what she imagined and what her plans for the future of her blog are. We also ask what her top tips would be for anyone out there who is looking to start a blog.
