Big Change Coming

Hey there, everyone.  I was just notified in an e-mail to adult-content Blogger blogs that a very big change is coming to the service that will force me to leave in favor of something else to bring you guys my work.

The e-mail reads in large part:

"In the coming weeks, we'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.

The new policy will go into effect on the 23rd of March 2015. After this policy goes into effect, Google will restrict access to any blog identified as being in violation of our revised policy. No content will be deleted, but only blog authors and those with whom they have expressly shared the blog will be able to see the content we've made private."

That's pretty cut and dry.

Mondays are the worst.  But, well, at least they gave me a month this time.  I'd been meaning to move away from Blogger and onto something more independent.  I just didn't want to be forced to before I was ready, you know?

Anyhow.  Thanks very much for your support in my time on Blogger/Blogspot.  It'll soon be coming to an end, but I believe that things will be for the better ultimately.  Your link to the URL will still work, it'll just go where the new site is when I finally get it going.



  1. This isn't the time I've heard about this. Are you gonna be alright?

    1. Yeah, things are gonna be just fine, thanks. :)

      I'm not going to look at this as a bad thing. It affects an awful lot of legit blogs and artists out there, but I'm hopeful that they're able to get on their feet with as little pain as possible.

      The site will become much less a blog as it is now and more like a modern website. I'm looking into a variety of solutions now. There are some very powerful tools that can help make the site beautiful and familiar to you guys.

      The cost of hosting is unfortunately something I need to look into, as well. The PDFs, etc help to take care of that, at least.

      But yeah, nothing to worry about, really. It's gonna take a lot of time and a lot of effort, but I'll work hard to get things back up to speed.

  2. sorry to see this really quick and easy medium get closed down. I am guessing that tmblr will probably also start tightening the screws.

    1. Yeah, who really knows. I do like their current playful stance on adult content. It's literally, "Sure. We have no problem with that kind of stuff. Go nuts. Show nuts. Whatever." Even though Yahoo did buy them some time ago, at least there haven't been any worrying signs of that stopping.

  3. More power to you man! Legions of muscle men will follow you wherever you go! We love you ;-)

    1. Thanks so much! Seems like Google changed their minds about censoring these kinds of blogs, but they've lost my trust the first time around. I'll still be moving forward with plans to get the site its own hosting and a brand new look. Stay tuned!
