Admin stuff

... and she emerges.

I thought I'd make a quick post to ask for suggestions for the blogroll, which I'm going to add today. Who do we love? What makes worthy reading on BDSM on the internet? Is there anything else that has a feminist slant? Where's the good BDSM porn?

Apart from a blogroll, I want to add links to BDSM websites, whether dedicated to specific fetishes, or just stuff we rate that might explore the subject matter of posts we make here in more detail, or from a different perspective. It's worth noting even at this early stage that BDSM terminology is incredibly fluid, and tends to mean very different things to different people. Perhaps we also need to put together a glossary of anything we, collectively, feel we CAN define?

Also, I'm no designer. Clearly. If you can't read the blog in its current guise, let me know. My partner, who is hoping to contribute to this blog himself, is quite up for designing something wonderful, but is in the middle of a big job at the other end of the country at the moment so we'd have to put up with a shitty template for a couple of weeks...

One for the blogroll (or, I'd recommend, contributor status here):

Just letting you know - I posted a heads up about the blog to the feminist_sub Livejournal community. Thanks for writing!

I like the grey background, kinda easier to read.
I know that when you start your own blog it is nerve wracking but things usually come together and other bloggers are usually good at giving their t'uppence halfpenny worth of advice.
Your ideas are good btw

Elle: Thanks! I'm a member of that community and was going to link it from there. We've linked to feminist_sex, too. I'll add feminist_sub to the blog/community roll, too.

Louise: Thanks for that. I still haven't fully got my head around blogger, but it'll come together. I want regular readers to have plenty of say in what we do with the blog, as well as contributors.

Verte,

Where is this link list? I don't see it.

verte said...

Sorry Trinity - I didn't expect to be writing that thing for print this week. I'm on it, anyhow.

If you can stomach a polemicist, I'd like to recommend Bitchy Jones's domly feministy rantings. Again.

Trinity said...

Gah!!

*eyes bleeding profusely from that horrid disgusting rant about how I have sex*

Dear Ms. Jones: howzabout you have sex your way and not generalize? Howzabout that, then?

verte said...

Yeah, I'm with you on that one, though I do like a lot of her other posts.

ps; To fix up the blogroll I need popups. Work allows me no popups. I'll be home in a half hour, though.

I've liked a couple of her other posts, though I'm still mystified as hell why she doesn't get that I wouldn't like "people need to stop lying and claiming women like this."

While not "feminist" I would like to plug http://www.powerinpractice.com
