The DJ man, he listened and actually helped. I do like that guy.Sunday evening-Monday morning
So I started this blog last April. To be anonymous for several reasons. The main one being I don’t want to lose my job. Another is that I felt like I could write the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth by not using my name or the names of my dates.
Then my mouth got involved in the fall and I began telling people about the blog. Then the DJ found it and shared it with his friends.
So now I have all these people in my home city reading it. And it scared me.
To allay my fears for my job and to cut out some of the DJ’s friends, I thought I’d put the “juicy stuff” behind a Patreon but in one week of being up there’s not been one taker.
So if you’ve been visiting the blog and wondering what the fuck I’m doing as you saw nothing or a weebly site, I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing .
I was talking to the DJ on the phone about it last night. I was asking his opinion. Dude is fucking smart as shit and sent me this quote from Neil Strauss, “When getting feedback on a creative work, note that the solutions offered are usually wrong. But the problems identified are usually right.”
Well fuck me sideways. I had been asking another reader/friend what to put on the Patreon for patrons only and he suggested photos. When I asked of what he said a date night outfit or in my panties. He said $8 wasn’t too much and that men would pay that. I thought about this. I realized it would be a complete shift in what I’m doing here. My readers are women. They are reading to watch my journey, to consider their own journey. Yes hello men I know you are reading also. For different reasons 😉 Hey knock yourself out or whatever it is you are knocking lol.
The problems? Getting found out and fired. People knowing who I’m writing about and it stops me from writing the whole truth.
I can’t control the first. Even if it went behind a Patreon I could get “found out.” If I started offering pix of me in panties for $5 a month that’s more of a fireable offense than writing about my dating life I believe. I can control the second. I can write what I want.
So the blog remains free. I want my readers.
I am going to do a podcast using the Patreon and I will be doing a couple of Kickstarters, one for my one-woman show and one for the book.
Thanks for the non-advice DJ. Deep kisses for you babe.
