Tuesday March 11th will mark the one year anniversary for ProneBoned! and it’s been one hell of a year. I’m posting this now because I receive tons more traffic on the weekend than a Tuesday night. But I am planning on posting what I feel is an amazing GIF on Tuesday evening to celebrate - it’s hands down my absolute favorite I’ve made thus far, because it’s SEXY. Stay tuned…
When I first posted back in March 2013, I never expected to gain much attention.
I never planned to flood people’s dashes with dozens of posts a day, like most of the big blogs seem to do. I never planned to reblog other material (though since rules were made to be broken, I occasionally do, since some stuff is just too good to pass up!). And I never planned to post material that’s not somehow aligned with the ProneBoned! niche (though again, I have done that occasionally, because sometimes being naughty just feels so nice - right?)
And I never expected to interact with so many fun and interesting people. Truth be told, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect - but now I’m fully aware that the majority of folks who visit, and run, porn blogs are generally well-adjusted, normal folk who happen to enjoy sharing kinky escapist fantasies with other like-minded people.
And that’s really the key point here. Why do people choose to express their prurient interests in a public forum like Tumblr? Like any form of social media, vanilla or otherwise, It’s for the interaction with others. When people like or reblog a post I make, it makes me happy. When people take time out of their busy lives to send me a message, it makes me happy. Even when people send me nastygrams, it makes me happy - because if you’re not making anyone mad, your sphere of influence is likely far too small to matter.
Some other general observations I’d like to make:
- 99% of people who visit this blog never say anything, but the 1% who do are unbelievably awesome.
- I still sometimes find it hard to predict what content will really take off. Some posts that I really, really loved didn’t get much attention. And others that I thought were merely OK, received tons of it.
- Messages & Submissions make me extraordinarily giddy. Every single time. Without fail.
If you’ve read this far, thank you! And always try to remember this, whenever you visit anyone’s blog: there are real people behind the blue screen. Interact with them like you would any “real” person - say Hi, be polite, and don’t act like an asshole or a crazy bitch. It’s unbecoming.
