Mic for Interview

Kinky Katie Laid Bare – Interviewing a New Blogger

 

Have you visited Kinky Katie’s site yet? Her fabulous erotica and fictionalised experiences are thrilling to read. Katie has suggested the latest prompt on the 4Thoughts or Fiction meme (hosted by May More): Discipline and Punishment. If you’ve been wondering about the ‘Submissive’ with a streak of ‘Brat’ behind Katie’s writing and tweets, read on and learn more.

 

To introduce yourself, please tell us one possession which you treasured as a child (0-10)

 

My most treasured childhood possession was my teddy bear.  His name was (well, is, I still have him!) Buttons because his nose looks like a chocolate button.  He is a little tired and faded now as he has been very well hugged.  I have tried to persuade him to go to the Tropical Water Theme Park (secretly, actually the washing machine, but I want it to sound appealing) – however he is never very keen!

 

Does that make me sound like a crazy person?!?

 

Describe your blog using 3 words:

 

Naughty, honest, fun

 

Could you expand your description a little:

 

My blog mostly captures my naughty and kinky escapades.  Some of the content focuses on completely genuine experiences; some of it is purely fantasy; and some is a mix of the two – I usually make it clear in the piece which it is.

 

I try to be open and honest about my experiences.  I do like experimenting and trying new things.  There have been some topics I have written about, that I blush at the idea of sharing with others (think fisting, figging, certain toys, a hint of pee play).  But then I get wonderful comments from readers thanking me for sharing these slightly taboo topics and it makes me glad that I did.  I love receiving feedback on what I write and how it makes others feel

 

I also try to “tell it like it is” in my true voice – meaning I include my amusing anecdotes or the brattish thoughts going through my head, which tends to make the pieces light-hearted and fun.

 

I often read pieces by other people which are more educational or discuss more emotional events – and they always seem much more “worthy” than what I write.  I sometimes worry my writings are far too flippant – but I guess that is just my style.  I am slightly in awe of the more worthy writers!

 

 


Is this your first attempt / foray into blogging? What attracted you to the genre of blog you’ve chosen? 

 

Yes.  Definitely my first foray into blogging – I never thought I was a very good writer.  I have always secretly preferred maths over writing (I love a simultaneous equation)!

 

I wanted an outlet to share my escapades and so I never considered another genre.  I then just decided a blog was the right outlet for these stories.

 

What 3 keywords do you use when you’re looking for kinky inspiration?

 

I now think I should be using keywords for kinky inspiration!  I genuinely don’t get inspiration that way.  I use my imagination to picture scenes in my head or to replay scenes I have experienced.  I almost always do this in bed at night or early in the morning.  Then I start to write the piece in my mind, planning it all out.  The next day I am then ready to write the blog.  Some days I don’t have time and I feel impatient – like the scene is desperate to get out of my head and onto the page.

 


If you were stranded on a desert island (with no power issues) name 3 things you would want to have with you (for instance kinky accessory / partner / book / film)

 

A wonderful sexual partner

Ribbons that can be used to tie me up or blindfold me – or both!

My kindle so I can read lots of books

 


You’re in a drag or burlesque act – what’s your stage name? 

 

I think Kinky Katie works for that.  I always think it would be amazing to be a burlesque act and I love all the corsets….


Which do you think evokes stronger memories – music or smell?
Please share an anecdote:

 

I guess music, although I am not very into music and definitely have no musical talent.  Certain songs remind me of people.


You can invite anyone (dead or alive) round for dinner; name 5 guests and tell us why

 

I felt my last answer was a bit weak and I think this one is going to be even worse!

 

Definitely my Dad, who passed away recently and I would love any opportunity to see again

David Attenborough and BBC Journalist John Simpson – because I want to hear about all their experiences.  I love to travel, especially to Africa and I think both of them would have so much to share

Prince Harry for all his insider gossip and his rebellious streak.  I almost met him once when we were both playing polo at the same event

And then maybe David Beckham just as eye candy

 

Have you ever done something sexual in a public place? Spill! 

If you don’t have a personal anecdote you can “tell us about a friend!’ 

 

Blushing – a few times actually!  Including on a plane which was very naughty – not even in the toilets, but in our business class flatbed!  

I have a blog post about having sex on a hotel balcony without realising there was a man standing on the adjacent balcony.  The blog is entitled “Once Upon a Threesome” – so you can guess how that story continues.  And, yes, that is one of the completely true ones.

 

Is there a blogger who inspired you to set up your site? Why?

 

I wouldn’t say there is one blogger who inspired me.  I checked out quite a few different sites to get a feel for what already existed and what I liked.

 

One of the most wonderful posts I read – and I guess therefore was inspirational – was “Fits like a glove” on Mollysdailykiss.com.  The image and the words just really wowed me

 

Now you are a blogger, what’s your ‘go to site’? What draws you to it? 


Again, no one particular site.  I look at lots depending on what captures my imagination that day.  I really admire @JaimeeBell and everything that she writes.  It is always informative, well researched and well thought through.


Quick Fire questions:

Temperature or Impact PlayImpact
Chocolate or alcohol Alcohol – champagne please

Professional porn or amateur (genuine porn)Either but it has to have a story line

Stinging nettles or bramblesOwwww – nettles I think

Quickie or sleepy sexSleepy sex 

Coffee or tea Coffee – decaf please

Play sport or watch sport – Play

 


How do you see your blog progressing – hopes and dreams?

 

I want to continue to grow the following of my blog – but also explore more avenues of how to engage readers, how to collaborate with other bloggers / influencers.

 

I would also like to start to monetise it.  And without that sounding entirely selfish – crucially as that would allow me to devote more of my time to it.  Hence, I hope to bring more naughtiness, fun and honesty to a wider group of people.

 

 

You’ve been so generous to share, let me return the favour. Tell me a “tool/aspect of blogging” about which you need a better grasp. 

I’ll provide some information and bloggers reading this can add input via the comments.

 

I guess, to my above comments.  How I can take my blog to the next stage? more collaborations, but also how to monetise my blogging and attract advertisers to my site.

Aha – this is the question I was asking myself after my 1st year of blogging. My advice regarding collaborations is read a lot of other people’s blogs, make comments that are encouraging and constructive, and follow some up with meaningful discussions (probably by DM) with their authors, this way you will find people with whom you have a ‘connection’.

Then just straight up ask them – would you like to collaborate with me? Sometimes I have a project in mind e.g. a story needs a male PoV/voice, I want to write about a kink and they are more knowledgeable on the subject and other times we knock ideas around until we come up with a good fit. I’ve also asked people can I use their images to illustrate a post / story.

Plan a schedule which suits all of you, and if you think you can’t make the due date, give the other(s) as much warning as possible. Whoever hosts the post, links back to the collaborator’s site, you’ll help each other with some extra ‘audience’; the same applies when you both share it on social media.
