If you know anything about me, you’ll know that I love learning and educating the kink and D/s communities. That’s why this blog exists and why I started The Iron Gate and Submissiveguide.com. There’s no doubt that I find the education available online for those interested in BDSM to be lacking, I’ve voiced it several times on this blog over the past 6 years. Each time I investigate a new site that promises BDSM education has been a let down. It’s either a ploy to get people into their porn site or the education is so one sided and one true wayist that I have to toss it aside.
There is a relatively new site called Kink Academy that has been online for about a year now. There are plenty of free videos and information about their curriculum and current faculty available to peruse. I’ve been watching the development of Kink Academy for a few months now, with the interest of learning and hopefully someday having access to the members area. It is a membership-supported site, but for under $10 a month I consider it well worth it. I’m not even a member so that’s saying something. Since I don’t hold the purse strings and with saving for a wedding I never asked for a membership.
This could be my chance to see behind the door. Kink Academy is currently looking for sponsored bloggers to go through their curriculum and write on their personal blogs about the education they are receiving. This could be a wonderul opportunity not only for me personally to learn things that I don’t know a lot about, and for me to gain additional knowledge on ideas that I feel I have a solid foundation already.
With everything I learn I do two things. I think about how it can apply to me, because let’s face it, not everything is straight from one person and immediately usable by the next. My blog is the sounding board for those thought processes (as well as whining and complaining, but that’s par for the course). The second thing I do is try to teach others what I’ve learned. Part of my responsibility as an active kink practictioner is to pass on what I know. That’s one of the main purposes Submissive Guide exists. I’ve developed as a respected writer and submissive with an open view on BDSM and a willingness to see things in a variety of ways. I’ve proven as a consistent writer over the course of the 2 years (coming in January) that Submissive Guide has been active with well over 300 posts already on the blog. I can set deadlines and stick to them.
As most of you already know, I’m a stay-at-home submissive, so my time is spend in service to my Master. He has given me permission to seek out this position and will alot the time necessary to go above and beyond the job description requirements. I have no doubt that the wealth of information available to me will make it onto Submissive Guide in some form as well since I can rarely keep new knowledge to myself. I think Kink Academy would be a good fit for Submissive Guide’s readers and I know the people who follow me personally would see it as something that fits me perfectly.
And so, this post is my application to the Kink Academy Bloggers Pool. Hopefully I will be letting all of you know that I have been contacted and accepted as a Student of Kink Academy real soon!
