Soles of Silk's Social Media Footprint Guide


Over the last few weeks I've been focusing more time and effort on the Soles of Silk social media footprint. In order to help everyone out in finding where you can find more soft soles and playful toes of the Soles of Silk girls, I've created this guide.

Two weeks ago I added a number of link sashes to the site as well as the site's forum. Almost immediately people sent me personal messages and emails telling me they loved the sashes. I decided to put those here as well. And as an added bonus, I'm also posting the original images used in each sash's design. I'm always game for a reason to throw a few extra free pictures everyone's way.

Now, onto the Soles of Silk Social Media Footprint Guide...

The site itself has been online since December 31, 2004. The first member came on January 1, 2005 and it's been a fun ride ever since. There are currently
 73 models on the site and thousands of photos. Most of the models are exclusive to Soles of Silk as they're just my ordinary friends and just enjoy spending time in front of the camera.

In addition to the 73 models, there are hundreds of video clips, dozens of contributing models from other sites, model interviews, and a downloads section featuring regularly contributing artists as well as originals created by yours truly.

The Soles of Silk Twitter account (@SolesofSilk) has been up and running for a little over a year. Some time ago I ran a Soles of Silk MySpace page, but closed it due to an abundance of spammers and trolls. That was right before the time Facebook really took off. I never really pondered opening a Soles of Silk Facebook because I find that site too easy to access people's personal information. Instead I decided to give Twitter a try and have loved it ever since. There is a Soles of Silk Twitpic account tied to the Twitter as well.

On the site's Twitter account you'll find me posting update information, details about shoots I'm in the midst of doing, and even just shooting the shit. I've been known to blab on and on about non-foot fetish items like wrestling, video games, comic books, movies and more. Hey, I'm a real person and like real conversations.

I had no idea what Instagram was until a fan told me I should create an account. After checking it out I decided to give it a try. At the time, there was no online presence for Instagram, so it wasn't like I could link to it from the site. What I've pretty much used this for is for random free flashback photos and special behind the scenes shots (during shoots). I also post every Instagram post right to Twitter. And don't worry, I won't post 3,000 photos of food unless they have a model's feet pressed firmly into it.

The sash above is brand new. I created it only an hour or so before writing this blog. I was unaware that you could get to Instagram via the web now (used to be a mobile app only). When I saw that you could, I went ahead and made the sash.

The Soles of Silk Forum has been around almost as long as the site. Housed as a sub-section of the Wu's Feetlinks Forum, I've posted sample photos and short descriptions of every update on the site since the forum was opened. I also post the same information in the Photos Section of the Wu's Feetlinks Forum as well.

Over the years I've made over 14,000 posts on the forums and continue to do so today. It's a great community and one that has been one of the best for showing off what Soles of Silk has to offer.

I created the Soles of Silk YouTube account only months ago. While I'm not keen on throwing every video I have on the site, I've been happy with showing off some of the site's older clips here and there so people can see what the site has to offer in the way of clips.

The most recent addition to the social media footprint is this very blog. Obviously you know where to find it, but I wanted to include it on the list anyhow. Thus far I've loved the ability to get my words out much better than I did in the past with the site's Columns section. I especially love the ability to share the posts directly to Twitter.

I'm actually looking at the possibility of adding a feed widget to Soles of Silk itself so people can see the newest blogs when they're posted. I have yet to find this online, so if anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.
