3 Years, 700+ Recommendations, 1.8 Million Page Views
I got one of those fancy Facebook On This Day notifications last last night (really, early this morning) with the post I published last year on this day:
It’s been exactly 3 years since I became a Professional Smut Peddler. What first started on my now-black-holed personal website, A Whole Lot of Nothing as a column named Kindle of Ill Repute, and then morphed into Smut Book Club, has now become Shameless Book Club.
This little square of the internet has not only provided me with an income (for real, I am a Professional Smut Peddler), but it’s also given me a super-highway of friends and like-minded smut-lovers. I wish I had the time, money, and energy to personally thank every one of you, but since my mama didn’t bore me into being Oprah, I hope you can feel my thanks through the internet’s series of tubes.
More than anything, I am ever-so-grateful for my lovely contributors. Nelle, Adrian, Marissa, Lina, Theresa, Kyleigh Jane, Dear Mistress, and Solange have given me the extra sets of hands and eyes I need to keep this smut-peddling machine turning. From the bottom of my cold, black, palpitating wonky heart… thank you.
And dear sweet sleeping Baby Jesus, I have so much love to all of you Smut Muffins! You make me proud to be your Mama.
In thanks for all these dirty years, I want to give out a $30 Amazon gift card to one of my special Smut Muffins!
