So for a few months now, I’ve been more or less half-heartedly running Frisky Friday. I began it in the aftermath of the prolific and hard-working Dangerous Lilly’s decision to shut down “Wanton Wednesday.” Shortly thereafter, Marie Rebelle started her own successor (Wicked Wednesday), and did, and continues to do, a bang-up job. At the time, I thought, a) I want a piece of that social action, and b) I’d like to see if I can’t get a little community of bloggers who blog about sex, rather than sex, going. This was, in retrospect, hubristic. I mean, all of us sex bloggers do more or less of sex blogging, and more or less of meta-blogging, blogging about sex, sexuality, desire, etc. But I sort of hoped that there would be folks who would flock my way. There were a few. If you troll back over the last few months, you’ll see the same bunch of folks – OmniWhore, Hubman, Marie Rebelle, Liza, Lizzie, Elisa Sharone, Swinging Emma, Empress Nympho, Fayth Allure, a Curious Muse, Molly’s Daily Kiss, Dumb Domme…. (sorry if I left you out, but I think those are the regulars)….
But I never got the volume of contributors, or readers, I had imagined. Partly (mostly) this is because I was lazy. I didn’t hype Frisky Friday relentlessly, but instead, did so half-assedly But also, I think, one or two memes a week (and they’re already out there, between TMI Tuesday, Wicked Wednesday, Sinful Sunday) is probably enough for this tiny community. Many of my favorite bloggers actually have explicit no-meme policies.
I have a great logo (thanks to Dumb Domme), so I expect I may tinker with the idea – maybe do something curated, instead of voluntary. But for now, Frisky Friday is about to go on hiatus. I just don’t have the stomach to continue to post it week after week without attracting more than a handful of, for the most part, the same, participants.
I live and learn….
