I mentioned to someone earlier today that the only time I feel connected to anyone is when I'm in my blog. Whether I'm reading, commenting, or responding to comments, I feel more myself in this space than anywhere else.
Ironic, huh? You don't know where I live, what I do, who my children are, what I look like, but you know me better than anyone else in my life.
I want to connect with people like this outside of WordPress. It finally occurred to me to go on social media. It's part of what I do for a living so it should have been an obvious thing. I have no expectation that people will flock to me on Facebook, especially since most of us kinksters like to maintain a certain degree of anonymity, but, I went for it anyway.
I'm on Facebook as Kayla Lords for anyone willing to actually friend me. And I started a Facebook page - for my writing, the pictures that speak to me, and to share what I love seeing on Facebook that I could never share anywhere else. If you're into that sort of thing, I'm there. If you're not, it's cool.
I considered starting my own Tumblr account, but I decided against it. He began one for us several months ago, and it's where I developed my love of Tumblr and erotic imagery. I'm afraid if I log out and leave that shared space, I'll never get back in. He may never go back there again, or he may one day ask me to log-out and move on - I respect either decision. Until then, I'll continue to haunt the space and reblog the photos that speak to me. Interested in seeing what we created? Here.
I felt so industrious today that I made a few changes to the look of my blog, too. I added the Facebook plug-in, and I added an archives section. It may be easier to read the history (for anyone interested) if you go month by month. But I'm warning you, I write A LOT.
And if anyone's into Twitter and wonders why I don't start tweeting? Have you read my blogs? Can you imagine me keeping it to 140 characters? I understand how Twitter works. I tweet for a living, actually. But it's not my favorite way to connect. Feel differently? Convince me.
Anyway, this was a completely selfish post to promote what I did today. I have no idea what it will turn into (if anything), but there it is.
