I will wear my (limited edition) "Naughty List" membership badge with pride…

In 2016 Rebel’s Notes was number 3 on the Top Sex Bloggers list, but I have expected to be lower on the list in 2017 due to not having updated some things on my site. I was right, but I was still surprised to find my blog in the fifth slot!

In 2014 Rebel's Notes was mentioned as one of the Top 100 Sex Blogging Superheroes, but in 2015 and 2016 the blog didn't feature in the list. This year, Rebel's Notes is back on the list, at spot 62.

Rebel’s Notes was mentioned as one of the top 10 Erotica Blogs of 2017 on Kinkly.

For the seventh consecutive time Rebel's Notes has been chosen as the number 1 sex blog of people residing in the Netherlands. Rebel's Notes is one of two English blogs on the list. The rest are all in Dutch. This list is done three times a year.

For the fourth (25.10.2016), fifth (07.03.2017) and sixth (08.08.2017) consecutive time Rebel’s Notes has been chosen as the top sex blog of people residing in the Netherlands. Rebel’s Notes is one of two English blogs on the list. The rest are all in Dutch.

Rebel’s Notes were mentioned on the third spot for the Top 100 Sex Bloggers of 2016. I am incredibly proud! These were Molly’s words: I have long been a fan of Rebel’s blog, after all we share a very similar relationship dynamic and so her writing often speaks directly to me but this year she seems to have really blossomed. Her blog is well designed, it looks fantastic and is easy to navigate and both the quantity and quality of her writing is excellent, perhaps even more so when you consider that English is not her first language.

One of my stories has been published in the anthology 'Tie Me Up' (edited by F. Leonora Solomon) and this anthology has now been nominated for a Golden Flogger Award 2016.

In August 2016 'Tie Me Up' won the Golden Flogger Award!

For the third time in a row Rebel's Notes was number one on a Dutch Sex Bloggers list. This list is done three times a year to keep people informed about all sex blogs, either in Dutch or where the owner of the blog is Dutch. Will I still be at the top the next time this list is done (October 2016).
For the second time in a row, Rebel's Notes is number one on a list of Dutch sex bloggers. This is a list of people blogging in any language, but residing in The Netherlands. Rebel's Notes is one of two English blogs on the list, the rest are all Dutch blogs.
Due to Rory being ill, Molly has taken it onto her to do the top 100 bloggers list for 2015. It's a humongous task to take on, but Molly did it and she did it well. I was thrilled to see Rebel's Notes on number 15 of the list, the highest I have been on this list since I've been mentioned on it for the first time in 2012.

I am thrilled to be on Molly's Top 20 list again, for the fourth year in a row. I have learned so much from her in the past years. She and her husband have become dear friend, who unfortunately live just a bit too far to be able to visit each other frequently.

This is what Molly said about my blog:

Rebel and I share strong similarities when it comes to our kinks, submission and D/s. So often our thoughts on these subjects, whilst not identical, are strongly aligned, and there is a great power to be had when you find such affinity with another person. It is for this reason that she remains one of my favourite reads. This Sinful Sunday about pain is perfect example, whilst I am not a huge fan of nipple play I can totally relate to the ‘need’ that she describes in her post and the same can be said for many of the Kink of the Week topics she has written about. This year has also seen her start The Menopause Diaries, a meme encouraging people to write about this their experiences relating to this subject and she has led the way penning a series of honest and frank pieces about her own experience. Oh and I couldn’t not mention the photography on her site and pimp this post, which is without doubt my favourite image she has posted this year; Pub(l)ic Landscaping

Wookie's Naughty List 2015

I love being on naughty lists and this year I am on Wookie's Naughty List, his top 20 for 2015.

Sadly this blog doesn't exist anymore.

Beck's Top 25 list 2015

I am proud to say that this is the third time I have made it to Beck's Top 25 list.

Sadly this blog doesn't exist anymore.

Last year I was on Stranded's list, where I was awarded a light saber and this year he and his lovely wife awarded me a ring.

This is what they had to say:

Rebel’s Notes – Marie and her husband, hard to believe, are now friends since almost the beginning of this blog. We met them face to face in Bristol in 2014, but originally connected through Molly (see below) early on. The website is brave and sexy beyond where most claiming to be sex bloggers would ever go (certainly far beyond what I would do). The site is also the host for a number of memes including Wicked Wednesday and The Fellatio Project.

NaNoWriMo 2015
I participated in NaNoWriMo 2015 and manage to complete a story of just more than 50 thousand words. Where it was quite easy to write a story last year, this year was definitely not as easy. The story just didn't run as smoothly as I wanted, and because of that, this story will be stored somewhere on my computer until I know how to make it better, if ever.
Mentioned on a list of Dutch sex bloggers, as number 1 on the list. This is a list of people blogging in any language, but residing in The Netherlands. Rebel's Notes is one of two English blogs on the list, the rest are all Dutch blogs.
For the third year in a row I proudly find my blog back on the extensive list that Rori of Between My Sheets compiles every year!
My blog was mentioned on the Naughty Corner site.

Molly mentioned me on her Twenty of Twenty Fourteen list.

This is what Molly said about my blog:

Sometimes I think Rebel might be able to read my mind. So often our thoughts on D/s and in particular submission are virtually identical. Her Kink of the Week posts more often than not seem to mirror mine. Not that they are the same but that our brains are just wired so very similarly when it comes to kink.

Yet again my blog is the only English blog on a Dutch list of sex blogs and bloggers. That makes me quite proud!

I was awarded the Bad Girls Bloggers Award not by F Dot Leonora.

I found these beautiful words in the her post:

Marie Rebelle is a marvel to me. She writes in two languages, is an artist, takes amazing photographs and everything comes from the heart. She is like a butterfly that just is, no cocoon, just is beautiful with full wings and filled with the most honest beauty. Her latest piece for e-lust is just stunning, floored me. And she nominated me as one of her top 20 bloggers of 2014. I feel happily lachrymose, just thinking about how much that means to me coming from her.

Top 25 list of Beck 2014

Beck mentioned me on her "Top 25 list of Beck".

Sadly Beck's blog doesn't exist anymore.

NaNoWriMo 2014
I tried it in 2013 but didn't succeed and finally in 2014 I managed it. I won NaNoWriMo 2014!

I was awarded one of Stranded's Light Sabers, the tan colored one, and this is what he said about me and my blog:

Rebel’s Notes – a colour of elegance and trust. We met Marie and her husband in Bristol, and believe we have two good friends here. Her writing always impresses, and the courage of some of her photos always leaves me speechless. Always a fun and arousing read. One of the classiest dames of sex blogging…if I may say…and a great encourager for my writing.

Sinful Sunday competition on 6 July 2014: Orange Fever

During 2013 Molly and I discovered that we are quite the same in many things, in our ways of doing, our ways of thinking. It was proven again when we both posted our top 20 lists on the same day and that a third of our lists had the same blogs on it.

Molly said this about my blog:
Rebel’s blog remains one of my all time favourites. We have so much in common and I find my own thoughts and feeling often reflected in her words. In addition her weekly meme, Wicked Wednesday, continues to grow offering a positive and rewarding community for sex bloggers to share their work.

Thank you, dear Molly, for including my blog on your list. You continue to inspire me, to give me things to think about, to make me learn more about myself. I feel privileged to be able to call you my friend!

Sinful Sunday competition on 1 December 2013: Winter Wonderland.

The judges remarks on our photos:
Here we are, with our fabulous winner who will be the lucky recipient of the brilliant iGino vibrator. All the judges felt this image truly encapsulated the theme of the competition, taking a traditional Christmas look and adding a very naughty dollop of sin. The way the train just looks like it is appearing out of ‘the tunnel’ is just perfect and the lights and pine cones seem to be part of some festive toy shop window, just this is not a toy shop for kids. Playful, fun, creative and down right sinful, just the way we like it round here.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this piece about my blog, putting me out there as a real life Anastasia Steel. This was the first surprise, and what really humbled me is to be out there with two ladies I adore and admire! Thank you Adam, for this wonderful promotional post!
Silverdrop's Meme of the Week

On the last day of 2012 I was on Red Inferno's Sexiest Blogs List
For the first anniversary of Wicked Wednesday, Molly of Molly's Daily Kiss wrote me a wonderful piece. Even though I would never forget that perfect moment between us, it's wonderful to have this piece to return to and relive that moment.

Number 64 on Rori's 2012 Top Sex Blogs

I was so surprised to find myself on this list that all I could do was to thank Molly and I just had no other words than that, nothing to make a blog post about this. I was just stunned and so honored to be mentioned by Molly.
