Hi Luna! Thanks for answering questions this month! I’ve followed you a long time, and I really enjoy reading about your journey. Here are my questions:
How does it feel to be known as a guru in the community? Do you feel happy and proud that you have put together a format that allows you to educate the masses, and do you ever feel stressed about your Submissive Guide work?
It can go to my head, that’s for sure. I’ve been known to be humble but also very obviously proud of my work. It was never always going to be that way. Submissive
Guide started as just a site where I could write my opinions down about BDSM and D/s. But when I realized how in love I was with writing and the response I was getting I found my new passion in life.
And since it is now my part time job it definitely gives me stress. But I’d rather have this stress than working away from home doing something I’m not really interested in.
Do you find that when you look good, you feel good, and vice versa? From a personal standpoint I know that when I am dressed up and made up I feel like I can take on the world, and when I’m feeling low the make up and pretty clothes are the first thing to go. Have you ever gotten through a funk by taking extra care with your personal appearance, and did it work for you?
Yup and it’s something I’ve known since high school. I always dressed up for exams and feel good when I’m dressing nicely. Getting though a funk this way? Nope, not yet. But maybe it will help with my current one.
Finally, do you feel that your blog brings more positivity to your life, or do you feel that it’s a source of negativity? I know you were having a rough time with bullies and trolls a while back, and I hated to see nasty people infringing on an area that should be a source of centering and solace.
This blog no longer brings me the joy and security it once did. I keep it open and write in it occasionally. But I won’t use it the way I used to. I have a physical journal for that, that even Master doesn’t read. So unfortunately for those that follow to learn my inner thoughts, they will be sorely lacking here.
