I don’t do it often, and I don’t particularly like to do it, but, what the hell. It’s nice to be recognized occasionally.
As some of you know, I write occasionally for what used to be Eden Cafe, but is now SexIs Social. Recently they announced a writing contest, part of which would be judged by their editorial staff, the other part more of a popularity contest (for lack of a better term.)
I’ve never been one for popularity contests, especially the kind that means posting “Vote for me!” messages all over social media, but…sigh…maybe I am feeling the need for attention, for recognition…to know ya’ll care or something. (Yeah, whiny, needy girl strikes again.)
In any case, for real, if you’d like to, I would love to see my writings “loved” on some. Voted for by readers that enjoy my writings, both here and there.
The first, “Playing with (Human) Dolls” (and one of their “featured” articles) is about just that: the fetish of dollification, how I got interested in it and what it is. The second, “How Not to Win Friends and Influence People” is a reaction to a douchebaggery email I got from someone on Fetlife, an (almost) first for me, and why I found his comments offensive and repulsive. I would never advocate voting for my writing just because you like me (“you really like me!” ~smirk~) but if you find either piece compelling or interesting at all, I’d sure like to know it by seeing a vote for it in the forum. :-)
To vote, please click here (links above will take you directly to my articles, not the voting page.) I do think there are some sign-in requirements (creating an account or linking to a social media account, etc.) but it’s fairly non-invasive and easy to do. Besides which, SexIs Social has some darn good writing on it, so I’d recommend it anyway, even if I wasn’t writing for them occasionally.
So…go. Read. Vote. :-)
