This blog is two years old today. Happy Birthday to me.
It’s been weird for me writing this blog. I truly never thought that two years on, with over three hundred and fifty posts written and more than a million visitors later, I would still be here, putting my thoughts out there for the world to read.
You see, this little blog was just supposed to help me express myself freely in a way I didn’t feel possible in my offline life. It was to give me a forum to understand the sexual obsessions and neuroses that I had and not worry about what people might think about me.
So I had no expectations; I just wanted to write about all the stuff in my head. If people read it and enjoyed it too, then great.
And for some reason, people did; they came back to read more. I still can’t get my head around the fact that thousands of people visit here every single day. I am both complimented and grateful to everyone that has visited over the past two years – I appreciate your support.
I am also thankful for the hundreds of emails I have received. I never mention them on here because I respect people’s privacy, but I think it is safe for me to say that I am still shocked by the sheer amount of you wishing me well or asking for advice on sex or relationships.
I don’t often get a chance to respond to emails, so I would like to take this opportunity now to say thank you for them – I am touched that people who don’t know me and have never met me, want to tell me I have inspired them, or given them confidence; or made them feel like what they were experiencing was ok. I am honoured that people have said this to me; it makes me proud that a regular, normal girl like me, might make someone feel good about themselves – it's the best compliment I could ever have.
So I want to say thank you. To the people who’ve been regular readers since the start; to the people that proudly put me on their blogroll amongst other established non-sex writers; to the linkers, the lurkers, the commenters as well as the new people who’ve just visited for the first time and stayed to peruse the archives: your support has given me confidence I never knew I had.
By way of showing my appreciation, here are ten of my favourite moments of 2005:My addiction to vibratorsOutdoor funWatching a sex scene in the cinema with my parentsMorning funA dab hand on my laptopBloody revengeSeduced by a stewardessTalking about cock sucking with my mother Discovering my skill in bartering (and climaxing in public)Why I'll never fuck an actor
