Hi guys, quick webmistress note:
I’m in the process of giving the site a moderate facelift, so I’m giving you a heads up that some things might get broken in the process (eg the contact forms). Rest assured that I will continue offering the free erotica I always have (the main reason you guys come out here). While I’m doing that, a few things may seem wonky or broken- I apologise for any problems you may encounter during the transition, as well as any wonky layouts.
I feel like the blue theme wasn’t helping you get the content you were looking for, and I’m happy to take feedback from you about anything you feel needs to be adapted or anything you’re finding particularly clunky here, as I plan continuous improvements. Berkson already weighed in that he missed the “O” logo, for example. 😉
Seriously, I’m opening myself up to your comments- even “moar of X, less of Y plz”.
- New header logo
- Expand text box for better blog reading
- Rework art elements to fit new template
- Put Fav Icon back
I’m going to keep the jetpack generated mobile theme for now (why fix what ain’t broke?) but I’d love to know if you’re getting and weird errors or whatever. Changing the browser based theme appears to already be helping my bounce rate. I’m also going to redo the contact forms- it might be a co-incidence but I feel like I’ve been getting more feedback not less since I disabled it.
I also want to go through old content and start adding missing attribution/sources to the images I use. Although a lot of this is very much amateur experimenting I feel like I haven’t properly credited people where credit is due.
I realise it may not be as seamless as hiring a professional, but having an ugly site was seriously killing my desire to actually update the damn thing. I also freely admit my social media feed may be full of frantic “wtf?!” questions as I try to figure out what the hell I’m doing.
The end goal is to get something with the uh… professional (maybe not the best word) quality to try to showcase what I do best. I take a lot of pride in my writing, typos and all.
And yes, I’m going to keep posting. Life’s been incredibly hectic (I am running a real life LARP, a monthly munch, work full time, and am juggling a health problem) but I’m in a good head space. I’ve been particularly happy with Wildcard who has been incredibly supportive and has started to contribute photos from his own hobby.
However, I do want to mention something else.
It’s always awkward to talk about money but…
Right now the sponsored stories and custom stories basically pay for web hosting. I’m one of the top searches for “femdom stories” on google, and I’m competing with sites with thousands of contributors. I know you guys like my writing, but I feel like I could do better artistically – I want to be able to pay to commission sexy art to match my stuff. That means more sexy femdom porn for everyone.
Hell, even using money to hire a cleaner for my apartment gives me more time to focus on creating porn.
So would you guys be okay with a tip jar or patreon set up? Do you think you’d want to participate?
