I know words like cross-promotion, synergy, branding are ubiquitous on the business landscape these days. But there is also a fine line between reporting about your doings and being an egotist. This is why Chris and I tend to like to keep this blog about Licking Non-Vanilla podcast episodes (go here and here to hear then), what our guests might be getting into, and the occasional new naughty book he or I have managed to put out.
Really, we do enough gabbing about ourselves on the show.
We try not to overdo it. Not because we don’t like to talk about ourselves; we do. Or that we have so much happening it is spilling out I great big come-shot gobs; it isn’t. Or that we are becoming ever bigger web celebrities weekly or bedding female rock stars (well, we are managing this last part, if you want to know who, just email us and we will tell you…and send 5×7 glossies). It’s just that we began this naughty, fun podcast to entertain listeners, not to talk about ourselves.
Really, we did.
But I do have something I want to share, and while not specifically part of LNV, I think it could be telling for a whole big part of the population Chris and I are trying to reach on our shows…naughty writers.
If you click on over to the SEXPERT site (here), you will find the latest in my bi-monthly postings on sex writing. Again, I’m not giving you this information to push that column; I have talked about it plenty here, and just a cursory search of all Chris and I are into, you will find…well…all that we are into. But this particular column is about a conundrum I am finding with the program Grammarly, something Chris and I use all the time, plenty of writers are committed to, and I would also guess, plenty of people who are not pro writers but want to check their word usage on a regular basis.
It’s this last point: plenty of people who are not pro writers but want to check their word usage on a regular basis that prompted me to write this blog today and alert you to the expert piece.
Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
