Yesterday was a funny old day, and I think I’ve just about got my head around what happened in the Kinkly Top 100 Sex Blogger Superhero awards!
This hopefully isn’t going to turn into a long gushy post, but I really do want to say a huge thank you to everyone, for the kindness and support you’ve shown me over the past 8 months, you absolutely rock!
I’ll be honest, when the voting opened for nominees to Kinkly’s Top 100, I was nervous of sharing the voting link, and asking my followers to vote for their favourite sex blogs. I think it’s fair to say, we’re probably all our own worst critics, but it really did worry me about how I’d fair. All through October, it’s been in the back of my thoughts, knowing people were going to be looking through my blog, reading my ramblings, and compiling their findings to give me some kind of score. To be perfectly honest with you, I was shitting myself!
Carnal Queen has only been around for 8 months, I knew that in reality, making the top 100 would be a huge achievement in such a short space of time, but what if I didn’t make the list?
I’m really no good with rejection! If I could just scrape into the mix and grab one of those last couple of places, I’d be deliriously happy!
Well, deliriously happy I am, because Carnal Queen placed at number 55! Seriously, 55th in Kinkly’s Top 100 Sex Blogs! I could never have imagined that I’d enter the list so high, and to top it off, we achieved 3rd in the Top New Sex Blogs of 2015!
I can’t tell you just how much I appreciate everyone who has read a post, shared a post, commented, emailed, or chatted with me on social media. Also a huge thank you to all the amazing companies I’ve worked with. I know it sounds cheesy and cliche, but I couldn’t have done any of this without you. I think it’s finally sinking in … I’m really not just talking to myself, in my little corner of the Internet!
It’s given me a huge boost, and I’m genuinely excited for the coming months. You’ve given me the confidence to continue, so I’ll carry on slaving over mountains of sex toys to keep bringing you more reviews and more articles in 2016! It’s a tough job 😉
Huge congratulations to all of my fellow bloggers on your placements too, collectively we’re a community of awesomeness, and it’s one I’m truly proud to be a part of.
Thank you 🙂
