As we move from one year to the next, let’s take a look back on some of your most favourite posts from over the past 12 months.
I’ve been blogging for four years now, and whilst that seems like a long time and with not many views to show for it, I continue to learn and grow each day. Just this year, I’ve learned about the importance of SEO, I’ve learned why you should pick a name (and stick to it!), I’ve found my niche (finally!) and I’ve learned that social media is not as important as good content when it comes to running a blog. Each time that I learn something new, I implement it as quickly as I can and I am seeing my blog get better and look more professional every day. I love Kinky With A Twist, I’m proud of it and I’m proud to give you a blog that you enjoy coming back to and reading from, too!
Number of views by year
As you can see in the graph above, my readership more than tripled between 2019 and 2020, perhaps because of the pandemic, but also possibly because of the development of the then Two Kinky Cooks. Although Two Kinky Cooks was something of a success, it limited growth and collaboration with other bloggers as well as not really being specific enough as a niche (a lot of kinky people also like good food, it seems!). By embracing both my kinks and my disabilities, I’ve found a much more specific niche, I’ve had a lot more success, and I’ve found something that feels really, truly and completely me.
Although my readership has taken a small dip between 2020 and 2021, I’m not too worried about it because there could be a number of reasons behind it. Fewer people could be reading now that restrictions have been eased somewhat in many countries, I did change my blog name at the start of the year (whoopsies!) and I have been blogging less, including a two-week hiatus. Crucially speaking, for so long as my blog continues to do well, continues to be read and continues to help able-bodied and disabled people alike, that’s all I really care about!
My Top 5 Posts Of 2021
So now that we’ve come this far, why don’t we take a look back on some of your favourite posts of 2021?
1. 45 Questions Americans Have For British People - Answered!
Do you ever see a social post that seems like it would be great fun to get involved with, but you aren’t really too committed to the end result? This was one of those times! I saw the original blog post and I thought, “hey, I’m British! I bet I could answer some of those questions and it would be a fun read, something a little bit different”. Well, with almost twice as many reads as my next popular post, you guys seem to love that one time that I derailed from my blog’s objectives completely! Read post

4. Bondara vs Lovehoney: Are Their Sex Toys Better?

Still, if you’re comparing retailers, then of course this is all information that you’ll want to know. Lovehoney has a lot of publicity, but how does Bondara compare? Let me talk you though my experiences with some of my “investments”. Read post
