Reader Question - Where Did You Come From?
“One question, how did you get into this sort of column anyways?“
This is a question that I get asked surprisingly often. In fact, to me, this is a rather tedious question. Maybe other sites/blogs/columns have more interesting creation stories, but I think mine is pretty simple. It goes something like this:
me [to the editor]: Whatever happened to the paper’s sex column?
Editor: Those girls graduated. Do you want to write it?
a few months later
Friend D: Shay, how come the paper doesn’t have your column in their online archives? I want to show my friend your article on cock rings.
me: oh, I guess I could make an online archive.
Voila. This is how the S Spot started (you’ll find this story told another way here). Obviously it has become much more than an online archive of my newspaper columns - and this is a direct result of me having more to say and of you guys, coming here to read me. ^_~
What, are you disappointed? Did you have some other version of The S Spot’s creation imagined?
