Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020 – #F4Thought

posted by LSB January 5, 2020 16 Comments

I originally started writing my thoughts on Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020 in last week’s SinfulSunday post but feel I started rambling on so I ended up creating one instead. As a rule, I tend not to do these kind of posts because I end up writing lots of things I want to achieve and when I don’t, it makes me feel like a complete failure so instead, I opt for the whole attitude “well, I didn’t pen it so it doesn’t exist” but truth be told regardless if I pen those thoughts are or not, I still feel the same so I have decided to take a new approach this year.

*Set goals that I can actually achieve*

But first, let’s take a look back to my 2019

The biggest and most amazing part of it from a blog point of view was getting attending Eroticon. I wrote about that experience, which you can check out here ( there are many, many posts). Honestly, it was incredible – I still get the odd flashback memory but one of my most favourite moments will forever be in the couches in the Holiday Inn. I was like a kid who snuck up on Santa and sat there listening to him tell me his stories except I was, in fact, listening to Molly, Girl on the Net, Hy and Marie banter away. I actually felt for the first time in years I was part of something magical. My other favourite moment was Friday night meet and greet. I finally got to meet Bee and it felt like I was hugging someone I see regularly. Bee kept me sane in the weeks coming up to Eroticon. I really don’t think she knows it but Bee somehow gave me the confidence in myself to relax. We sat on that couch and giggled like two naughty schoolgirls while Bee’s OH sat close enough to keep an eye on Bee’s behaviour but not close enough to hear us. We continued on into the main function room where the chats continued and we were joined by Julie and her OH. Many giggles were had that night and… I really could keep bantering on, honestly read my posts if you are even slightly considering going. It is worth every penny, cent or euro.

I have read other folks round-up posts so while I don’t really take much interest in my stats and such, it’s time to go dipping into what drew my readers in this year 🙂

Top 5 most read posts:

This post that talks about my experiences with a pussy pump was the most popular 

While this post, which is part of my BDSM diaries section is next in line. I talk all about spreader bars in this one. 

The third post is a comparative review in which I talk about our experience with the Tenga Flip Zero White and Black.

The next is another comparative lube post, one I speak about the difference Tenga lubes.

and last but not least is the words section of my beloved BDSM Diaries.

Top 5 countries to visit me:

USA

UK

Canada

Australia

Germany

Top 5 most popular images:

I placed again in the Kinkly list, in Molly’s top 100 and in Wookie’s naughty list. I also made Marie’s top 20 and May’s More 24 list for the first time.

Hello 2020

So as mentioned previously the big one for me this year is to write more. Less reviews will be a big part of my 2020. Now don’t read that as I won’t be doing them because they were and still are a big part of my blog but they won’t *be* my blog. 2019 saw my real life being spun off in different directions and me tagging behind it trying to keep up. So 2020 will see me kicking its arse as I am going to (well, I am trying to be) a hell of a lot more organised.

So expect to see a different side to my writing as I challenge myself by throwing myself into memes. Hello, Food for Thought *waves* – this is my first post here but it won’t be my last 🙂 I plan to pop up more frequently in other memes too. However, I am still very much on sitting on the “no erotica from LSB fence” so expect to read more about well, more about me! I plan to dust off my BDSM section too – not really sure where that section will go just yet. The last post on there spoke about inflicting pain on myself so I might dip into that more. I do know I will be talking about learning to self-tie on there as well as trying to (?) photograph it so that is another new thing coming from me!

My blog is 4 this year so I have decided to revamp it. Unsure when that will happen/ new site going live etc but it will happen this year sometime.

And finally last but not least, it absolutely kills me to even type this, genuinely my eyes are actually starting to well up but we will not be attending Eroticon this year. I have tried to make it work but sadly it just isn’t feasible. It is super expensive for us to get there. Last year, I saved everything I made from the blog and managed to secure sponsorships (again thank you Sheets of San Franciso and Doxy <3 ). It managed to pay for the accommodation, tickets and flights. We topped up the funds ourselves for spending money. To be honest, I am not even sure I could find someone to mind for the kids for us so all in all, the odds are against us.

However, the money I have saved already will go towards getting a new laptop – this one is on the verges of dying daily so thank you for shopping through my links 🙂 You guys are the reason I get to keep writing.

Oh and I plan to read more. I have set myself the realistic goal of a book a month, with a hope of more. I started back on the book bus last night ( I am reading the Dark-Hunter series for those who are curious) and I am already a 1/4 the way through the book… in fact when I publish this I am off to read it! I am loving reading again so hopefully, I can maintain the speed! And finally, use my camera more – go off on more outdoor adventures…

If you are still reading, thank you for listening to my rambles… Thank you for being a part of my 2019 and I hope you stay with me for 2020.  <3

Oh and by the way, it is my image that is being used for inspo this Masturbation Monday, I am dying to read what it inspires 🙂

I agree a fab image and a great post. I missed you at eroticon last year and will miss u this year. 🙁
I must say as far as I can see you keep achieving and raising the bar.
And I also have to say you made it into my list – The More 24 – I can not tell you how much I debated over who to pick – it came down to positivity – and that’s what I read from u – I have a badge for my list and everything lol xx

Oh May I apoligise… Your badge is already on my site already. I was rushing to get this post finished before the link up ended. I’d add you in now. Please don’t feel I don’t appreciate a spot on your list, because I really do! x

Happy New Year! Sounds like you have a great plan for ongoing success… yay you! Happy New Year! I won’t be going to eroticon this year either, I feel your sadness on that one. I will miss meeting and seeing everyone again!!

I’m very sad you aren’t coming this year. I actually debated until just recently about attending myself for a few reasons. You are like a bundle of fun energy that I wish I had spent more time with that weekend. I hope 2020 treats you well

Yay, how wonderful to have you join us for F4T and that you plan to join in more is amazing. I know you say you veer away from these kinds of posts because you think you tend to end up rambling but honestly I always think they are far, far better than you give them credit for, I am genuinely excited to what writing you share with us this year x

Such a richly enjoyable post LSB. Your energy and joie de vivre are infectious. I wish you all the very best for your endeavours this year and every year. x

LSB January 8, 2020 at 8:56 pm

Hmmm you are actually the second person to call me infectious recently… And the other was in my RL. So I am most definitely taking that and bottling it as I think it’s a lovely compliment so thank you very much.

And the same to you, lovely – happy new year to you and yours Xx

Sorry to hear you can’t make Eroticon. I missed last year and am excited to go this year. Really excited to read about your changes to your blog, will be great to read more about you. I’ve decided to drop sex toy reviewing altogether myself, I just find it too time-consuming and I never made any money off it.

LSB January 8, 2020 at 8:55 pm

Ah thanks Isabelle <3 I am looking forward to doing something new with it and writing more… It’s so exciting, I hope you have a ball. I loved it last year Xx

I really going to miss you at too, very much indeed xxx

I hate that neither of us will be at Eroticon this year because the (what feels like) 30 seconds we got to say hi was DEFINITELY not enough. But I am looking forward to seeing what you do in 2020!

LSB January 11, 2020 at 8:29 pm

I am liking this comment because I very much agree, time flew that weekend and I feel we didn’t get to chat enough. I hope to be there the following year – I hope you are too <3 x

Sorry you are not able to go this year. I can’t see me ever getting to go between the money and that I can’t imagine what my back pain would be like sitting on a plane that long. (I’m in the US) But I can only imagine how much fun it was for you.
Reviews are so time consuming. I’m limiting myself to no more than two toy reviews a month. Memes are becoming my inspiration for writing!
