We could all do with a bit of self-promotion now and then, but the funny thing is we rarely do that in Britain. Blowing your own trumpet is not encouraged growing up in the UK.
But the Wicked Wednesday prompt is Promotion – with an emphasis on personal, so here I go. And yes the title and header image are clickbait 🙂
I started this site in 2016 but only got into writing in 2017. Then, in 2018 I entered the Smut Marathon competition and things took off for me. More people wanted to read my fiction, and it was also a way that others found my true life sexy posts. Here is a basic structure of my blog so you can find you way around
4thoughts or Fiction Meme
This meme has had a chequered history. I was gifted it a few years ago by the previous host, Kilted Wookie and ran the meme alongside Floss for about a year. In July 2020 she resigned and I added the meme as a sub-domain to Sex Matters. It has done quite well on the whole. I’ve encouraged new and returning bloggers to choose and host a prompt, which has been fun for us all. But because all the posts need to meet the prompt each week, the numbers are sometimes low. Also, I have had my hands full with life and other projects, so probably haven’t really put enough promotion into 4thoughts. It does have some very loyal regulars. However, I am thinking of taking a break from it OR passing it on – if you fancy a challenge and the chance of running a meme, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is a site for all things blogging and writing
It has been a difficult year for the Blogable Babes – myself, Marie and Missy. Which has meant we’ve not posted as much as we would have liked. However, we did complete the April A to Z challenge with some great articles. And at present, the Fiction Marathon is on its semi-final round. We welcome guest posts from other bloggers and writers who have advice to share, and there will be more to come from this project.
I decided to have a go at Medium. A platform where writers can post their work, new and old. Each writer has their own area on the platform and can submit stories to various Medium publications hosted by fellow writers. I thought to myself, in for a penny… and asked Posy to join me in opening our own publication for fiction. Well, we did just that and it has been an enormous success. Mrs k and Liz Blackx came along to help, and so many other writers regularly submit their stories. It is a thriving environment and something I am very proud of. I have even managed to get my good pal Cousin Pons writing with us.

On the whole, Medium has been a fabulous experience for me. And a way of earning a little money. You can find all my Medium fiction and non-fiction from my MEDIUM PROFILE.

Anyone can write and earn on Medium for free. But if you want to read more than a handful of stories a month then you need to take out a membership – only $5 a month, and this goes towards supporting the many writers on the platform. We are paid by views. The more views we get, the more cents dribble into our bank.
As a writer on Medium, I also get a bit extra if someone signs up using my referral link.
That’s it, except all the personal links I have included above, are writers I admire – here are a few more I think you should check out…
