Mobilegeddon Means Lots Of Changes

mobilegeddonIf you even wonder about the true power of Google on the internet right now, you need to look no farther than April 21st, 2015. It’s a date many are calling Mobilegeddon (as in Armageddon), and it’s the date the Google has set to roll out major changes in it’s search results based on if sites are mobile friendly or not. Now with more than 50% of all visitors to my sites being on mobile devices or using tablet and touchpads, it’s pretty much a given that sites need to adapt. Remarkably, very few have. Anyway, as a result it means that I am working like mad updating sites and making everything ready and clean, so that I don’t get taken out when Google drops the ban hammer or sandboxes a bunch of sites for no other reason than not having a viewport set!

Anyway, the result is that I am like 100 years behind on writing posts for my blogs, as I have been spending the time testing sites and making updates to the themes and layouts to make the sites work propertly. It’s a real pain in the butt, but the results are really worth it. In many cases, I end up resolving long standing issues, some of which I never even noticed. It’s cool in that respect. Anyway, it means that sites like my new Free Porn TGP are cooking along nicely, and erotic stories sites like Teen Sex Stories are ramping up in popularity as the content is now easily enjoyed on a mobile device. More updates are coming, it’s pretty much going to be the story for the next 4 weeks as I get stuck in to get the best result. So stay tuned for more updates!

Oh yeah, check out the free live webcams here, free membership and all just go on over and register, it’s worth it!

Year of the Sheep and Stuff

sheep-yearHappy Chinese / Asian / Lunar New Year everyone, the year of the Sheep is here, and as a result, I went to see the Shawn the Sheep Movie. Really quite funny if you like that sort of thing. Anyway, as I mentioned in my regular New Years post, I was pretty much happy to see 2014 go away, and I am equally happy as a result that the horse has trotted out of my life and been replaced with the much more amenable sheep. This year so far is looking up, if for no other reason that last year sucked so very bad indeed.

Google is on the rampage for mobile and responsive site designs, literally taking sites out of their listings that don’t pass their very arbitrary preferences for mobile sites. It’s one of those times when you can see that Google is an effective monopoly, as everyone and their dog is scrambling to update sites and change designs. So many of my blogs like Hardcore Fucking and Teen Sex Stories have been moved to responsive designs to try to keep up with the demands of the borg.

Also, I am keeping on with my new Free Porn TGP, now with more than 500 galleries and adding 24 new ones per day (one per hour) this thing is set to take off in a very big way. People who visit seem to stay a long time and check out a bunch of pages, I have over 300 pornstars listed already and more adding daily, and as I get more and more time for the project I keep adding more galleries – maybe that will double to 48 per day or even higher. The goal is pretty much “the whole fucking net on a site” but I don’t know I can do it. Either way, I would love your feedback (@18nhxxx is the twitter account) come on over and let’s chat!

Sexy Taylor Swift and 10 Years Of Stupidity

sexy taylor swiftSo unless you live under a rock or in a weird place on the planet, you probably know about singer and celeb Taylor Swift. For some, she is one of the sexiest girls on the planet. Not my personal type, too much neck and stuff, but certainly I wouldn’t throw her out of bed for eating crackers. Actually, it seems she has more of a habit of throwing guys out and then writing songs about it. Different story. Anyway, she apparently got her Twitter account hacked and they threatened to show nude pics of her. Well, let’s just say that a girl who only showed her belly button off for the first time ever isn’t very likely to have a big collection of naughty pics hiding online. Her reply to the hackers here is pretty much classic. Oh, just for reference, she has 51 MILLION twitter followers. One retweet from her is like striking gold!

Anyway, meanwhile and back at the ranch, 2015 has started out sort of with a bang and a thud, all at the same time. I have been cleaning up a lot of things, Google is on a total rampage about sites that don’t render well on very tiny mobile screens, so all sorts of sites from Sexy Girls to Go Stories Erotic Stories have been fixed up, changed, revised, and made responsive in their own ways.

To that end, I am also working on a new site, which you can tune into and enjoy as I build it. 18NH.COM (I call it 18 Nude Here in my mind) is a TGP / gallery site with a unique look and a really sweet interface. It’s responsive, the image display system is nice, and I am stocking it with all new stuff. First up is plenty of hot little cuties from 18Eighteen, and then from there I will be adding more sologirls, hardcore stuff, and more. It’s all good as they say.

Also, don’t forget to check out Tit 4 Free live cams – get a free membership, enjoy the live chats, and get naughty. You really do actually get something for free here, no shit. So get on over and sign up, and enjoy it.

Finally, it was brought to my attention that this blog is about to turn 10 years old. Holy fuck. 10 fucking years? I have to say that I do know I have a band of loyal reader who come and read my occasional outbursts, and I want to say thank you for your kindly attention and stalking messages. I know your out there, which is why I tend to lock the doors at night. Seriously though, thanks… and here’s to 10 more years of this stupidity!

The End Of The Year and New Beginnings

in-the-raw-end-of-the-line The end of the line for some is the starting off point for others. One of our Western world traditions is the idea of the new year’s resolution, where for the magic passing of the arbitrary calendar date from December 31 to January 1, we resolve to fix all that was wrong and we wouldn’t or couldn’t fix before. For many, that means losing weight or stopping smoking. For me it’s a bit more of a practical thing, there are certain files and systems I use that require year end maintenance to get ready for the new year, so that is more where I end up this time of year. In fact, I have done it pretty much every year since I watch Y2K come and go as a magical nothing, so perhaps it’s a family tradition or something!

Good Things Come to Those that Wait, Bad Things To Everyone Else

the fingerMost people who know me know that I am (a) a pretty nice guy at heart, and (b) an opinionate dick at the same time.  A few times in my life my opinion has gotten me in deep shit, sometimes I think it’s because I actually tell the truth people didn’t want to hear.  A certain incident a number of years ago sort of split me from a webmaster community I was part of for a very long time, and while it seemed like a bummer at the time, it actually proved to be for the better.

The funny part is that I was recently cruising around and ran across the person who I “told the truth” about, totally by accident.  A little checking and a little Twitter reading got me back up to speed on this person, and realized that what I had said was almost entirely true.  Moreover, that person’s choices may have in fact screwed them out of something that should be very important to them.  I feel sad for them for a loss that they aren’t even noticing, but more over I feel a small amount of vindication in knowing that I got it right.  As a result, I feel sad for many of the people who ran me off of a community based on my opinions.  Oh, for what it’s worth, most of those who ran me off have since left the webmaster world because they couldn’t hack it when it actually became something they had to work at, not just party about.   So for them, all of them, I give them this wonderful middle finger (from Wikipedia of all places) to let them know that I am thinking of them and trying not to laugh too loudly.

Meanwhile, back in the world of porn (a happier place, I think) I have had a fairly production little while here.  After having to shut down a number of TGPs and Tube sites as a result of insecure software and software that wouldn’t run on a modern server, I have been working to rebuild.  One that is coming back from the dead is my Big Bust Babes site.  It was link off TGP (links to other people’s galleries) but now it’s an internal gallery site.  So everything comes up in good fashion, there are no dead or blind links, no redirections by third parties, and the image quality is better.  Only about 20 galleries, but I am adding more all the time and the old ones won’t get removed, so you can don’t miss these big tits girls and enjoy.

Also, Lust Galleries is making a comeback in the same way.  These sites all have their own hosted galleries, which makes them “integral” and more enjoyable to surf around, I love working with these sorts of designs and I see it as the future – maybe a little less raw content, but more quality and better presentation.  Oh, these sites are all generally mobile friendly porn site as well!

Not a Repost, Amanda Bynes Goes Batshit Crazy Again

amanda bynes bathsit crazy I can honestly say that I am not shocked to be writing this, but it is a bit sad.  Just over a year ago grown up child star Amanda Bynes lost the plot, and ended up held on a 5150 psyche exam thing, which turned into a conservatorship by her parents because she was bipolar and a danger to herself and others.   She was literally batshit crazy.  Well, the doctors got her on the right meds, and Amanda recovered nicely, returning to school (fashion) and generally seeming to be all that more normal.  Well, a year on, everything was going well and the conservatorship ended, and the predictable happened:  She apparently stopped taking the doctor provided meds, started to smoke a lot of weed and stuff, and well, Amanda Bynes went batshit crazy again.  She literally took the plane to crazy town (New York for her) and spent a couple of weeks wandering around being weird, shoplifting, smoking dope, and generally just sort of scaring people.  In the end, Sam Lufti (the guy who apparently took advantage of a fucked up Britney Spears just before her conservatorship happened) and told her that he would help her sue her parents back in California.  He arranged the car to pick her up at the airport, which instead of taking her to the promised lawyer, instead took her to a hospital to get locked up on another 5150 – and the parents are back looking for a conservatorship again.  Literally, she went batshit crazy again, and hopefully this time she gets the support she needs for the rest of her life, not just long enough to get the bats out of the belfry.

Meanwhile, on to better things.  You can have a look at my new Tube site, 2K TUBE, which has a ton of videos on it and more getting added.  It’s new software and I am just getting use to it, but it looks like it might work okay.   Also, there are plenty of updates around, including Thumbskingdom with a ton of new galleries and a hot layout, and also Lust Galleries - tell me what you think of this new design!

Mercedes Javid Reality TV Desperation and Free Cams

intheraw-mercedes-javidReality TV is sort of the inverse of a mirror on society at times, because it seems to be that the shows create an idealized or aspiration view of the universe. It also has a habit of spewing papparazzi friendly and photogenic people for sites like TMZ to fawn over. Mercedes Javid is that sort of star, this Iranian American is on a show called Shahs of Sunset, and her most notable contribution appears to be her hefty cleavage – this gal has some seriously huge boobs. She started the show being quite chubby, but bravely did some pap pleasing bikini shots anyway. The resulting shots were either empowering for larger ladies, or a source of ridicule. It certainly did give the show some exposure, if you pardon the pun. Well, she has taken off a whole lot of weight (but managed to keep the boobs) and she is back doing pap pleasing bathing suit shots. It’s sort of sad to realize the level of promotional desperation that goes with this stuff, and also sad to realize that some people actually think that these shows are completely real. Ah well!

Meanwhile, on the subject of free cams – we got them! Please cslide on over to SEXXX4FREE for a free live chat room, literally click enter and the inside page has a live chat room, and you can get a free membership and go to town. It’s good fun and yes, it’s totally free to enter the chat room, so don’t be shy! Also, you may want to click on over to the revised 1 Hot TGP, sort of trying a different way of doing things to see if you guys like it, let me know what you think. Finally there is OKFAP, which is a hardcore version of NudeBB Babe Blog, this time with plenty of hot hardcore action – and just about daily updates too… let me know what you think!

Breaking The Chain And Moving Forward

intheraw-breaking-the-chainOne of the very basic things I have learned in more than 20 years of online life is that nothing stays the same forever. In fact, if anything does stay the same, you should watch out, it’s about to fail! Running websites online is a true challenge because every day, I face the issue of falling further and further behind if I don’t run as fast as I can. For most people running adult websites, the last few years have been much harder than anyone expected.

I have seen a number of people I considered friends close down their websites, sell out, or both. Some days it feels like I am the last shop owner in a dead shopping mall, where all the other stores have moved out and I am the only one left pushing stuff. But it’s a failed perception because it’s not an empty mall, it’s just that the shops don’t look anything like they use to, and it’s much harder to see where business gets done.

This could end up being a longer post, so rather than mess you all up early, I will break it into a “read more”. However, before I do, cheer me up (and make yourself happy) and get a free live sex webcam chat account over here. It’s really a good deal, there is plenty of free stuff and the action is hot!

Bering Sea Gold and Other Things

intheraw-emily-riedelOne thing that is for sure, I have always been a bit of a dreamer, a wild adventurer, and pretty much a crazy guy.  Perhaps it’s why I enjoy shows like Deadliest Catch so much, because the people invovled are hard workers but also very unique individuals.  It seems Alaska draws more than a few people like that, and recently I have been really getting into and enjoying a show called Bering Sea Gold (and the winter Bering Sea Gold: Under Ice).  It’s all about the people who dredge for gold off the coast of Nome, Alaska.  It’s pretty much a boys club except for Emily Riedel, a 20 something girl who has gone from innocent newbie to tough boat owner in a couple of seasons.    It’s amazing to see what people will do for money, how the desire for gold drives them more than a little crazy I guess.   A very interesting show, and I figure it must be hell to actually film it.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the last month or so has been my endless moving nightmare or celebration, depending on how you look at it.  I have certainly gotten to see all of the back 40 of my online empire, and found stuff that made me giggle, like really bad pages made back in 1998 or so.  Fuck, I have been at this too long!   Anyway, I did change over Sexxx4free to a live cam show site, go on over, click enter, and you are immediately in a live chat room, and there seems to be a lot of couples fucking on there there days.   I also updated my Wife Sex Stories site with some new stuff, and a great blog style design that makes it easier to get around.   Other than that, it’s a real grinder.

Moving Day and Stuff

intheraw-onetripNo doubt about it, real men do it in one trip, right?  Seriously though, the idea of migrating hundreds of websites by myself, without too much outside help has been a bit of a torture test for me. I sort of went into it all with my eyes wide open, but at the same time I wasn’t really ready for all it has entailed. It’s a lot of work.

That said, I am happy with my new hosting arrangements, my stuff is split over different hosts for the first time in probably a decade, and with good reason (that I can’t really go into here). I can say I was amazed at how much hosting has changed, how different the pricing is, and what the options are out there. Many of the changes I have made are to improve website performance, to make the way the sites load more reactive, and such. it has also allowed me to update many sites to have more responsive style themes, which should make things easier for people using mobile and tablets, which is really become a big part of the online world.

So stay tuned as I get everything settled down and moving forward again. I still have a solid week of work to do, but it will soon all be done and I can get back to the serious business of keeping you guys and girls entertained! Meanwhile, don’t forget to check out Free Porn Pig’s Porn Party!
