One 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!
The good news is there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. The bad news is that it’s a long tunnel, and along the way many of the people I know in the adult online world have not only seen their businesses failing, but have also failed on a more personal level. From the highest high of selling and promoting one of the most pleasurable things around (sex and porn) and making good money doing it, many of them have crashed and burned with a mountain of debt, a lifestyle their income no longer supports, and a collection of bad habits, bad health, and a bad mental state. One guy I know for sure right now (and he knows who he is if he reads this) is currently going through major depression seeing his flagship site pretty much collapse in front of him. He doesn’t sleep, he’s taking lots of meds, he has physical issues (I think related to stress in many ways) and cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel. I fear for him, but there is little I can do.
For me, it’s been a good year or two of rediscovery and changing my ways. It’s not always easy, the current internet is really against online marketing, so it’s pretty much a challenge every day. Yet I still get plenty of satisfaction knowing I am helping you guys and girls to find the porn you love and to enjoy the pleasure that is sex and sexual lifestyle material. So I work on new sites, create new blogs like Cheerleader Porn, and generally keep myself busy and happy. The feedback I get online, in email, and in comments is also pretty much a positive thing. I have also gone back to taking a personal interest in my health, weight, and the like, and I am happy to report that I weigh within a reasonable few pounds of the lowest weigh-in from my weight loss challenge a number of years ago. It’s not to say everything is good, but hey, I can try, right?
No matter what you do in life, no matter what your position and your goals, remember that you can break the chain if you decide to do so. You can make a difference and yes, you can learn new things and move along nicely. I know one day that this blog will be gone and I will be on to other things, but I will remember also that it has documented the many changes in my life, my online world, my business, and so on.
So do an old porn guy some good, and get yourself a porn membership. Check out the free live webcam here, and check out all the porn on Free Porn Pig too… enjoy it all and don’t let the real world get in the way of a good, sexy time!
