My website www.fantasy69.co.uk is the 'hub' of my work, containing how to contact me etc. as well as all my sales to 'fans'. I'd be lost without it!



Every model working at topless/nude glamour and especially adult levels SO needs something like this, at least.

An excellent example there Serena. I hope that's working for you 


(Nice bit of self promotion too!)

I have my own website - chrissiered.com & chrissiered.co.uk
I don't know how to update either though so they kind of fell apart a bit. 

However I use my blog which has had almost 50,000 hits which I think is a pretty good number for a blog containing my rubbish writing skills.
It has good statistics on the people who are viewing - things which help me market it or know where my visitors are coming from.

I also use deviant art which has some awesome statistics on there so you can keep track of pretty much everything. They are both fairly popular now or well I think they are I have nothing to compare them too but this didn't happen overnight but its great being able to communicate with people who admire your work.

I can't even remember my log in details to even access it - somebody else hosts it and done it all for me. 
I was getting quotes from a couple of designers but then I bought a house which was falling down so the priority shifted a little.
I always think its nicer having communication with people who like your work, knowing a bit about who they are and with the blog I always feel like it shows my personality as well as images. I know some people don't want to hear a model talk about what they do but plenty enjoy catching up with what I've been up to and I love reading other models blogs too, its nice to know they have the same passion for what they are doing as I do - plus its quite nice to know the personality behind the images a little bit. 

We can all view an image and say "this is lovely" but I often find I appreciate it more when I read the back story behind the shot a little -  If I read the model was working in -14 conditions with a 40mph breeze standing on a 30 ft high windowledge which was covered in ice and only 10 inches of footing space I appreciate the image even more and put myself in their position.

I love reading Ivory Flame, Madame Bink and AnitaDebauchs blogs too - I don't travel overseas so when I see their images from other lands and they talk of their experiences in these countries It educates me and often entertains me. I just wouldn't get the same feeling inside if it was just a picture which could have been shot in any country. Knowing they worked in extreme conditions to get the shots do leave me in awe quite often - I'm guessing its the same for most people who follow blogs.
