The Rantings - For Adults 18+

WTMFI Wednesdays – Should it return?

Way back in 2010, I was publishing two blogs: The Rantings of a Tortured Mind – PG Edition and The Rantings of a Tortured Mind – XXX Edition. On the latter, I wrote about the beginnings of mine and The Boyfriend’s relationship, my kinky sexual desires and I began the weekly meme all about sex, WTMFI (Way Too Much F***ing Information) Wednesdays.

WTMFI Wednesdays
WTMFI Wednesdays

For 26 weeks, every Wednesday, five questions (plus a bonus) would be posted to my blog. I would add my own answers and invite readers to participate. It was the first time in my life that I experienced knowing that people were reading my blog and I even had a regular participant create a Twitter hashtag for me – which at the time was brand new to me, I had never used hashtags before.

WTMFI Wednesdays – Week 26: BDSM 101

I miss doing these! So much! Not only was it fun to try and think up all the questions, it was awesome to get to answer a lot of them and I loved that it forced me to regularly blog. I’m totally considering restarting and bringing back WTMFI Wednesdays. What do you think?!?

Would you like to see WTMFI Wednesdays return? Would you participate? 

 

The Rantings - For Adults 18+

The 100th Post

Honestly, I can’t believe that there’s only been 100 posts in the last 3 years…

ValerieRayne.com originally launched on August 4th, 2015 with the post “It’s Me Again!!“. After just over a year of publishing posts, ValerieRayne.com shut down for a total redesign on December 17th, 2016. I officially re-launched on February 13th, 2017 with the post “Welcome Back… Finally!!!” and reached my 100th post on March 13th, 2017.

Today, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the interesting stats and top posts from the last 3 years and the first 100 posts on ValerieRayne.com.


Stats for 2015

In 2015, I published a total of 70 posts on ValerieRayne.com. I received a total of almost 900 views from 500 visitors mostly from the United States, United Kingdom and Brazil.

Top Posts in 2015

The Club – Part 1 & 2

Surprisingly, part 2 has more views than part 1 and that continues to be the truth year after year.

TO DO: Sex in the Great Outdoors

It’s honestly no surprise that this was one of the top posts of 2015, because it’s a good-er!

Desire Runs Deep

A sexperience between The Boyfriend and I in which we utterly exhaust each other.


Stats for 2016

In 2016, I published a total of 17 posts on ValerieRayne.com. I received a total of almost 1200 views from 600 visitors mostly from the United States, Canada and Brazil.

Top Posts in 2016

Our Favorite Sex Positions

Still four of our favorite sex positions. Definitely getting lots of use!

#TheSims4: Builds in Windenburg – Mid-Nowhere: The Rayne’s

A house that I built for one of my old families in #TheSims4, available to download on the gallery.

Wake Up Sex

I had fantasized about waking him up with sex and he just happened to be sleeping in the perfect position!


Stats for 2017 (so far…)

In 2017, I’ve published a total of 13 posts on ValerieRayne.com. I’ve received almost 200 views from 90 visitors mostly from the United States, Canada and the Philippines.

Top Posts in 2017 (so far…)

Holiday Fantasy Fulfilled

For a week, I had a recurring fantasy. And The Boyfriend crawled inside my head and made my dreams come true 😉

#Sexperience Fails: When FFM Threesomes Go Wrong

I finally share my experiences with female-female-male threesomes.

#TumblrFavorites – Winter 2016/2017

I rounded up a few favorites for the four months that I was on hiatus but still Tumblr-ing.


Over the last 3 years, I’ve published 100 posts, had over 2000 views from over 1100 visitors from countries near and far. I’ve written about sex, love, my kids, my life and some of my favorite things like The Sims 4 and binge-worthy Netflix shows. I’ve launched and re-launched, designed and re-designed and learnt many new things about myself as a blog-a-holic over the years. It has been amazing!!!

Here’s to the first 100 and the next 100!

The Rantings - For Everyone

#ThrowbackThursday – 101 Things About Me (2010 Edition)

Over the years on my blogs, I’ve experimented with a variety of formats and content. Back in 2010, The Rantings of a Tortured Mind not only had these awesome biographies of each of the kids, it also had a “101 Things About Me” page, which was incredibly difficult to make. It’s amazing how little and how much has changed in the last 6 years. Enjoy this blast from the past!

101 Things About Me - The Rantings of a Tortured Mind (2013)

Things That Have Changed…

Much of this list would still be the same today as it was back in 2010. Save for a few things…

#15 – I have a moderate-to-severe heart murmur

Not anymore! About six months after Carter was born, I went for an echocardiogram and the murmur had gone away entirely. To think that we were talking about synthetic valves and then just a few months later, the whole problem goes out the window!

#19 – At one time, I had 12 different blogs. Now narrowed down to 4… It’s a bit of an addiction!

For almost a year now, I have successfully only had 2 blogs – this one and my Tumblr. It’s far less of an addiction now than it ever was before, although I’ll never stop being a blog-a-holic.

#24 – I love playing videogames, my favorite console being the PS3.

I haven’t played a PS3 in a really long time. Because it’s the only console I use now, I have to say my favorite console is the Xbox One. However, the reality is that when it comes to games, you’re more likely to find me playing The Sims 4 on my PC!

#36 – My longest relationship has been 6 years, my shortest 2 years.

The Boyfriend and I are coming up on our 8th anniversary this summer, so now my longest relationship has been 8 years and my shortest has been 2 years.

#61 – I enjoy collecting dead rose petals.

I no longer collect anything. I have an extensive collection of vinyls, but that’s not something I went out of my way to collect. I have not received flowers once in the 8 years that The Boyfriend and I have been together.

#94 – I avoid the stationery section of most stores…

Not anymore! I have successfully walked through that section multiple times in the last couple of years and walked out empty-handed and feeling fine. The kids like to use up and lose all my papers/journals/pens, so I just stopped getting them. Again, no collecting here!

#95 – I take a 4 cream 5 sugar please!

It only took him 6 years, but after much determination and plenty of trial and error, The Boyfriend managed to get me down to a triple triple. We now drink the exact same kind of coffee, although I drink far less now than I did back then. This pregnancy isn’t very fond of coffee either, so I’m down to about one cup a day – sometimes less.

Interesting! 7 things – that’s all that’s changed in about 6 years. It feels like a lot more has happened in that time but I guess the fundamentals will probably always be the same.

#TumblrFavorites for February

After an entire month off, I had so much fun coming back to Tumblr. My first night back was a three or four hour deal and I was reblogging like it was going out of style.

I was sick all of January and my Tumblr saw absolutely no updates.
Sorry 🙁


#TumblrFavorites for December

See My Top 5 Tumblrs: December 2015

December saw a huge focus on black-and-white photography – some of it erotic, some of it not – nonetheless all amazing! These were my favorite out of the huge selection of those!

Memorable moment: We’re scrolling through our subscriptions on YouTube and Kaeidyn, my 11-year-old daughter says to me, “Please don’t think I’m weird, but can we watch that video“, as I go over SexplanationsSex Toys 101“. I didn’t think she was weird and I still don’t and that’s why we watched the video!

You could say that September was my black-and-white obsession month, as a large portion of my reblogs were black-and-white photos and .GIFs. It just looks so sensual. Here’s a few posts that weren’t B&W.

Although it’s mostly depressing and that makes it a least-favorite-update, it’s been a consuming issue these last couple of weeks.

The Lowered Drive is Killing My Writing

One of the biggest problems I seem to be facing with this whole lowering of my sex drive is that I can’t seem to write a single good sentence on any of my erotica. I’ve been desperately craving writing something, I’ve got a story waiting to be finished, I’ve got all these story ideas and plans in my head – and yet, my lowered sex drive is making it impossible!

First of all, the issue of getting aroused. I tend to write my erotica and if it doesn’t turn me on, I scrap it. Because I’m a pretty easy target for arousal, so if it’s not turning me on, it’s probably not very good. However, right now, I’m all out of whack. Stuff that normally turns me on isn’t working at all and so everything I write erotically immediately seems to suck.

Second, the visualization. A huge part of my erotic writing happens because I have a vivid imagination that runs wild with sexual thoughts. Without those visualizations, without the ability to even attempt to have those visions, I have nothing to spring forth from. I have no scene, I have no characters, I have no plot and there’s definitely not any sex!

The lowered sex drive doesn’t seem to be having any effect on any other area of my life except my erotic writing and I am officially noticing and I am officially not happy about it at all! Tonight, as I attempted for the umpteenth time this week to write an erotic piece, I officially hit my breaking point. I kept trying to explore why I was having such a hard time with it, why I’d get two paragraphs in and suddenly be completely lost, why I couldn’t get a single sexual moment out between anything, and I’ve finally figured it out. And I am not happy, not happy at all!

I want to write but I am being way too critical to get it done…
