2nd Blogiversary Celebration and Giveaway

pennysblog_purewandselfportrait

I can’t believe it’s been a year already since my last blogiversary! Like my blogiversary post from last year I’d like to share some of the highlights from my past year of blogging.

Some of my most popular written posts from this year were my pieces To Shave or Not to Shave, East Side Exhibitionism, The Dildo Wars, my erotic stories Dirty Talk, Denial, and Get Back in Line, and my Luna Beads Noir and Adam 02 reviews.

One of the things I’m most proud of from the last year is how much my photography skills have improved from taking classes and practice, and some of my most popular photos (that I captured) from the past year were Sin City, Oral, and Candy and from my modeling and collaborations with photographers/friends, Ready to Play, Foxy Lady, and Touch.

I think my absolute favorite post from the past year was Little Red (which has jumped to my #10 top post of all time, & I only posted it a little over a month ago!) I had so much fun working on the concept for the images with Epic Studios and writing the fictional but symbolic and personally meaningful coming-of-sexuality story.

Some of my other favorites (that I haven’t mentioned already) were my experiences trying “cheap, 10 second timer self portraiture,” a poem about the (sometimes strange) things I masturbate to, my Crystal Minx Tail review, my Pure Wand and Fed-Up self portraits, my photo collaboration with Jake & Steve DeMent, an artistic photo of Jake that I captured, and my sex toy photos Curiosity, Deep Vibrations, Call of the Wild, and Retro Ryder.

I also recently featured my first two guest posts, a sexy photo of my friend Elise and her new toy, and an interview with fellow blogger and cam model Scarlet Rose Fox.

Some other “first times” from the last year were topless tanning at Barton Springs, exploring pet play, and the most exciting…having other people join Jake & I for some sexy fun. I haven’t chronicled any of these though for everyone’s privacy, sorry to leave you hanging, but maybe someone in the future will let me share something juicy. 😉

Thanks so much for sticking with me to those of you who have followed me from the start, as well as to all of my new readers/viewers! I love you all!

    Woohoo, congrats with your second Blogiversary! Also, I really like the lay-out of your Tumblr.. which theme are you using, if you don’t mind me asking?

    Congrats on 2 years!
    What I like most about your blog as a website is it’s simplicity and neatness. The colors are neutral, there are no ads on the sides, the date the post was put up is easy to find: it’s well organized (which I find soothing)and there’s nothing to respond to but your content (no distractions in the corner of my eye). What I like most about your blog as far as its content is your sex toy photography. I came for the toy reviews, but I definitely stayed for your photos. Even those you use in your reviews are very high quality, and it’s obvious, even with my limited knowledge of photography. You use your camera to create art, and I absolutely adore that. I almost think you should create a page to sell prints of them!
    I would of course like to see more reviews and photos, but I’d also like to hear some of your stories from working in an adult shop. Your posts for The Redhead Bedhead’s tour were interesting, and I wonder how those experiences shaped your reactions to your customers once you worked in an adult store. You hinted at it a bit in Part one. Also, I’d like to see a toy box page. I find them very helpful when I have questions to ask. When I know what the reviewer owns I can phrase my questions in such a way that I get the information I need and my question is just a matter of comparison. (For example, saying, “Is Sliquid Silver thicker than Sliquid Sassy?” is easy to answer for you, and it’s easily understood by me since I’ve tried Sliquid Sassy, so it’s a better question than “Is Sliquid Silver thick?” since we may have differing ideas on thickness)

    Your into page says; “My goal is to share my sexuality and to encourage others to think and talk more about their sexual experiences, desires, fears, and fantasies.” I think you’re living up to that, and you should be proud of yourself and your blog.
