5 Years of The Bottom Drawer
5 years ago today I did my first blog post “Welcome to The Bottom Drawer.” Hard to believe it has been that long ago I started blogging. I really didn’t have many expectation when I started. I decided I wanted a way to voice my thoughts on men’s bikinis and thongs. Be the place I looked for when I started my journey that says yes you are not the only one. I looked at it as being a hobby, which I still see it as.
One of the great things about the blog is the amount of commenting everyone does. The more points of views on a subject the better for the ones thinking about joining in on the bikini and thong world. With the addition of the forums, I think we can all interact better. It allows those seeking more information and support a place to get it. You have the ability to create your own topics of discussion instead of just my blog post topics. Hopefully the user base will continue to grow.
I’ve reached over 250+ posts in the 5 years, which is about my goal of 1 post a week. I wish I had more time to do more and do better with my interactions, but time is limited. The blog has also received over 2000 comments, which as a blogger to me is what you really want to see occur with your content. Thanks to all that have commented and expand on the subjects.
What have I got out of blogging? First and most important is more like minded individuals to interact with. I’ve learned that my underwear drawer isn’t as full as others. Some even have multiple drawers. It’s gotten me to discover more brands that are out there and given some of them a try. Still my brand loyalty sticks with the ones that have been with me from the early days. Hopefully my writing has improved over the years, which has not been one of my strengths. I think the blog also gave me some accountability in my goal of breaking out the swim brief at the local beach. By putting it out there in writing, I think it gave me that extra needed push to just do it. Those are some things that come to mind.
So what’s to come in the next 5 years? That is a question I need to ponder more on. Hopefully I’ll still be doing at least a weekly post. I’d like to see the forum keep growing and be used daily for interactions. Would be nice to draw some women into viewing the blog and forums. I’m thinking about some more general posts on bikinis and thongs and maybe some questions related to husband wearing them. Hopefully that can draw some in. Of course I’m always open to ideas and suggestions.
Thanks to all that follow and here is to many more years.
