Well, the last couple of weeks have been pretty weird here at porn headquarters. Summer is always a little weird in the online porn mongering world because summetime tends to drive people outdoors to enjoy the nice weather. People take vacations, spend time with their families, and generally do things that don’t include curling up in their den with the latest Tawnee Stone – Jordan Capri lesbian sex adventure. Overall visitors to porn sites drop, and more importantly for those of use who do this “commercially” people are less prone to purchase memberships and whatnot. Our industry calls it the “summer slump”, and I just call it a weird time of the year.
Unlike many people in the biz, I don’t take summer off. Rather, summer is a time when I look at all the stuff I have done in the previous while and see what the heck I want to be doing with it in the future. My company owns about 1000 internet domain names, so there is much to look at (if I spend 5 minutes on each domain, that would take 4 days if I didn’t take a break, and about 2 weeks on a regular 8 hour day. But 5 minutes really isn’t much time at all (this message might take 20 minutes for me to write) so you can imagine that there are some corners of the empire that just don’t get visited all that often.
Internet domain names aren’t really owned as much as leased on a yearly basis. In the case of my domain portfolio, about 50% of all the domains I own expire in august and september each year. As a result, this month in particular is a big time for me to be looking at all the things I own and make sure that they make sense to keep. I have probably pared down the list by about 50 or 60 domains this year, as things have gone out of style or I have lost interest in working on those things.
Other companies also step up and get busy this time of year, and I have had someone recently purchase a domain from me for a pretty good price ($x,xxx), which I think is a good deal for them as well as me. I wasn’t doing as much with it as I could have, I am sure they will develop it better that I did, and I still took home probably 10 -15 times yearly earnings that I was getting from it, so it is all good for everyone involved.
Anyway, so in the process of going through all that stuff I find really interesting sites that I had forgotten I had made. Such as my collection of Real Peachez galleries or Teen Topanga promo videos… plus some real junk I am honestly too shy to share with you, safe to say it has been added to the list of things to fix! It’s fun to do this sort of stuff.
Anyway, all this just to say if I happen to be a little slack on the posting here, it is because I am trying to get that 5 minutes for each domain, to make the porn better for your enjoyment! In the meantime, enjoy the summer 🙂
