I’ve got a Pinterest page. I pin selected mildly erotic pictures on it, which are mostly taken from this blog.
I get the impression that Pinterest is a pretty chaste affair, so even though I’ve been selecting photos that don’t show genitals or fucking, I’m probably pushing the boundaries even by showing nipples. So my page may not be there forever.
But what struck me as interesting is this: it’s been going a few days, and it has five followers. But it’s just photos taken from the internet with my wordy words removed.
My blog, on the other hand, shows off maybe a million words, most of them organised and put into the right order by me, and it’s been going for nearly three years. Do you know how many followers this blog has?
I’m sorry, but it’s none.
I know I have readers, so I’m happy: “fit audience find, though few”, and all that. You’re discerning people, all of you.
Still, my motley and random collection of light bdsm images is going to eat this blog alive. (Bangs head on desk.) Anyway, word fans, the real business is and will always be here. I’m about the words.
