How Starting a Sex Blog Has Changed My Life

It’s been a year since I launched Ashleydannielle and I’ve done a lot of reflecting lately on how it’s changed me. It’s crazy to think it’s been a year already.

I remember writing that first initial post. About starting this blog. I was scared. I still hide it from certain people, but I think a lot know about it. Some at least should know I write erotica. While I’m still shy about some people knowing about my sex blog and erotica writing, I mostly don’t care anymore.

I do this not just for myself, but to help others have an amazing, passionate, perfect sex life with their SO.

My sex life with N has become even better since starting this blog. We’re much more open with one another and we’ve been experimenting with new things more often. It’s made it a lot more fun and exciting. And N doesn’t care that all our dirty details are up on the internet for the world to see, and I love him even more for that. He supports me in everything I do, including this.

My confidence has increased so much. I used to wake up almost every single day hating my boobs. I’m a 32 B if you must know and I used to wish on everything that I had bigger boobs. That they wouldn’t have been so ruined by having babies. And that I could get breast implants. I even started feeling like if I never got them then I’d never learn to love myself and you know what?

The lies I used to tell myself are so unbelievable and I’m a little upset with myself for wasting so much precious time hating something about myself that I cannot change. I no longer detest my tits. I don’t long for breast implants anymore. I’m not even sure I would spend the money on them if I came across 10K. Because you know what? I love myself. I’m gorgeous. I’m sexy. I’m perfect the way I am.

Opening up about my sex life on the internet has truly made me a lot more comfortable in my own skin and I fucking LOVE it.

I’ve also learned that making money from this blog isn’t my first drive anymore. I just have fun posting naughty and informative content and it’s become so much more important to me to reach more people to share things with then it is to make a buck.

I’m truly happy with where my blog has gone and where it is headed next and I have all of my supporters to thank for that. Without you guys, I don’t know if I would have continued with my blog. But to see that I’m actually reaching people and affecting their lives (whether that’s by providing entertainment, new things to check out, or giving some useful tips) it makes me truly happy.

This blog has helped my life in ways I didn’t think it would help me out a year ago and I am so, so excited to see what this next year brings.

XX,

Ashley

  1. Congratulations!!!!! I am trying my hand at it and I find it to be difficult. However, it’s only been a few months and I admit I haven’t been as active with my blogs. Patience is definitely at hand.

    I don’t know you, but I AM proud of you. Keep up the great work.

    1. Thank you so much!!! Yes you definitely have to be patient and keep a good work schedule. (I learned that the hard way.) I’ve found I can manage three posts a week. (Though I’m doing blogmas next month so I’ll be posting every day 1st-26th.) I’d love to check out your blog!

      1. Thank you. I appreciate that. I was posting consistently, then my bout with depression had me stupidly delete the original blog I started; which was actually doing well, but now I’m back at the beginning. I have tried to repost things I had on the original one. However, not all was reposted because I didn’t back up everything. Now I’m working on getting back into my writing.

        I’ll look forward to your upcoming posts and what’s a “blogma”?

        1. Oh no!! I hope you are doing better. I totally understand the depression part! It’s hard to keep doing what you love when suffering from depression. I hope you stick with it this time!

          Blogmas is posting everyday during the month of December! From the 1st-25th. With Christmas being the final day!

          1. Ok, I learned something new today! 🙌 I’ll work on staying more diligent. I’ve come out of my “fog,” but I’m still a little off. Do I have to register for Blogma or just post everyday in December?

            I would be more inspired if I got my new computer (mine never stays on, even with a full charge and the full storage notification keeps coming on after I’ve deleted A LOT of stuff). The day I was going to buy one, my daughter called needing money (she barely asks) for my granddaughter. Sooooooo, I did the mommy/grandma thing. 💞

            1. Not at all! It’s totally voluntary. I don’t know many people that do it. But I did it last year so I kind of feel the need to continue the tradition.

              And I totally understand that! Mine turns off if it’s unplugged now. Which is a pain. I also get the giving your daughter money thing. I would probably do the same thing.

  2. Absolutely on all of this. It’s so wonderful to have read this post!

    The blog we started was something we wanted to do to help others and guide them through a process we’d experienced. Little did we know how much it would reveal about ourselves. It’s gone from something we started to help others to something that we benefit directly from.

    Keep doing what you’re doing!

    1. I’m glad you liked it!!

      Isn’t it amazing how you can start something to help other people and along the way, find that it changes you for the better? I love it.

      You keep doing what you’re doing too! I’m going to catch up on your blog now!
