InterupPost

Since I’d just interrupted a short series of posts I had been planning to do with a post about
The Thick BBW Forum’s Downtime (which I hope isn’t permanent!!) I thought this was a good time to make a quick post about what I haven’t gotten online.
I have told a few people- and also implied it to everyone, by, you know, being a webmaster and all- that I was going to add a new tits video and a few new big thighs ones, but I didn’t do that. Sorry folks, for that. BUT the reason new videos aren’t up by now is because I was looking at my reel and realizing I had way more footage I could use than I’d thought! Way more! So! The delay is actually a kinda good thing. I didn’t get the new vids up yet because there was a lot more action than I thought.

I’m going to start putting the videos I get done up like one at a time or so instead, to make it manageable, and now that I know what the deal really is keeping that reasonable promise got far more reasonable and I’m doing it.
Then I’ll get back to the other two posts I wanted to do before getting back to normal here.

Renew Or Die

That’s what I have to do.

I’ve learned a lot in struggling to keep blackstreetbbw.com running for 10 years.
So much has happened, and if you’ve been along for the ride, you know that.

I’ve worked hard on blackstreetbbw,, but instead of just showing off the site, I want to show off this graph:
sitestatstruth

Look at that.
Proof that for all my effort, I got on the wrong path and stayed there. And paid for it.

The main thing that went wrong for me was- as I discovered years after it happened– Google’s Panda update. That changed the game on SEO.

Anyway, to spare you from boredom and me from typing, I’ll just tell you I’m going back to the roots of what makes a website good, in hopes that I survive. You don’t make a website popular by making it for traffic. You do it by making it for people. If I’d known that like I know now, then it would all be different. The way to get the traffic I need to stay in business online is to make a better website. If I do that, the traffic will come.
I’ve learned what I was doing that Google didn’t like, so now I can only hope that getting enough of it off of my site will make them ‘forgive’ me. I also hope YOU, will forgive me, too. Focusing on traffic isn’t how you get traffic. Focusing on useful site content is.

BUT IT CAN’T HURT TO PLUG A BEG HERE, RIGHT? 😀

I’m at a point now where if I can’t make a net profit of over just two dollars in the next ten days, I’ll probably have to shut the website down! There might be nothing left of it but a domain name! If you want to help me with that help me get a link the right way and post a link to blackstreetbbw somewhere you can where people approve of this sort of thing. I don’t have long to start getting some traffic or some sales before things die.

I almost didn’t want to type this post today, because I wanted to see how things would go by Christmas, first. Christmas, of all days, is the day I got to have the money by for this whole online thing to pay for itself…

Anyway, I hope I didn’t bore you to death or contradict myself, and if you’ve been following this blog, you’ve heard me give a pitiful apology before, and then not follow it up with enough action. Well, if I pull that shit this time, there won’t be a next time. So I have to do right. Google still knows this blog exists, so maybe I can still use IT to get some traffic to blackstreetbbw somehow before it’s too late and the account goes red.

So starting with my next post here, you’ll be getting some of the really neat and useful content I’d been wanting to post for the past few years, but was too stupid and lazy to post.

Lucky Seven Seven Day Save

Well, it looks like I got what I wanted.
As I’d wished to prediction the other day, blackstreetbbw.com has hit it’s target and the domain has been renewed! 😀 Hooray! Now it’s just on to next months bills as usual, which are a whole lot easier to pay, and not site-dooming if they’re not paid.
Thanks to everybody who helped out, and thanks to everyone who will help out in the future, helping themselves to some candid BBW and helping this brother out a bit while they’re at it.

So this means the site gets to live to see it’s 10TH anniversary. I never even thought about seeing that day… so I have nothing planned… WISH I DID, but I spent year 9 so focused on bare survival.

Back when I started this website, there really weren’t many places to get BBW outside of porn. I didn’t have a problem with porn, but there was a largely unfilled niche out there, so I set out on a mission to fill it. Now, there are a lot of places to get BBW like that, and I think that’s a good thing, and think this blog will be a lot more interesting if I give a little attention to a few places like that. There still aren’t a lot of places to get candid BBW, though, so at the rate things are going at, I’ll be able to keep this site going ’till at least year 20 if the internet or something else doesn’t kill me first!

Traffiquesh

Hey there, folks. Yes I’m still alive.

I’ve been watching my traffic sources over the years, and I’ve noticed something. Even though my blog here often gets more traffic than my website does, I tend to get NO HITS on my website from this blog
Don’t be shy, folks. If you haven’t already, or haven’t recently, if you’re reading this and like candid camera BBW,
hit up my site, dudes!
EVERYONE who comes here can’t be looking for updates. 😉
I especially need the traffic now, because I need to have funds to pay for my domain renewal at the end of the month. You guys don’t want blackstreetbbw.com to become parked, do you?

Site Type Change for Time

I want to give you guys a quick heads-up on blackstreetbbw, lest you give up on it!

For disk space reasons, AND ALSO BECAUSE OF SHORT TERM PROBLEMS, blackstreetbbw’s gonna switch to being a website about buying videos one at a time.
For now, the whole site is going to likely be a download store, unless I have a problem with the host for that. I’ll have a selection of my best vids, and you’ll be able to buy them one at a time. What about current, paying members? The Member’s Area will be a place where all the videos of the clip store are available for free.
The glimmer of good news in this is that members are finally gonna get access to videos that weren’t in the Member’s Area yet, but were on this blog! It also means that really good videos that WERE slated for release in the distant future will now be available SOON, rather than forever later.

Blackstreetbbw’s still going to have more issues with files and downtime for all August, but the website’s going to come back to life very, very soon. It’ll be a shadow of it’s former self when it does, but that’s partially because of all the issues it has to go through this month. It will probably be a while before the Member’s Area looks the way it used to. During all that time, though, I’ll still be “updating” the website the way I normally would, preparing for the day when I can relaunch the site you guys all knew and loved, as it was meant to be enjoyed.

And speaking of how things were meant to be enjoyed, soon, this blog will be more enjoyable, as I get more pictures in here again, making it back into a blog that was fun by itself, rather than being a news site for blackstreetbbw.

Site Cleared. Site Cleaned: The Purge

Gave this post a scary title because this looks like a scary time for blackstreetbbw. BUT it’s actually a time of hope!
GoDaddy gave me the three day extension I was begging for, enabling me to rescue a ton of videos. But the 7TH was the last day.

All of the files have been purged from the server, so as of this moment (which happened at 9-something AM EST) the site is devoid of any functional files.

WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN NOW?
Well, the first thing that will probably happen is the homepage will get a little better and images will crawl onto it so it doesn’t look dead. Might happen today or tomorrow.
But to begin the process of resuscitating the site, I’m going to start putting individual files up for sale. Basically, The Clip Store is coming back online first, and current members will have free access to everything in it. Also, you know how the preview section- and this blog- would have women that weren’t in the member’s area yet? Since I can’t do the site the way I want at the moment, I’m going to go into the future, dig up the most extreme women, and sell those clips individually.
The only problems with that is my most extreme ones of all you’ve already probably seen, and a lot of people liked a lot of the women that were less extreme for various reasons.

I want to give a shout-out to two people: Liberty, and Jamie. You guys know who you are. Liberty bought a number of vids from me back when the site was running, the whole custom request way that few people took advantage of over the years the clip store was running. Making vids specifically for him has made it so I have additional vids to put in the clip store now.
Jamie… that guy’s just been a long time fan and supporter of blackstreetbbw, and I feel mean that I haven’t replied to his messages in, like, forever, so I feel like that dude deserves a shoutout here for real.

DownTime Uptime

An update on blackstreetbbw’s downtime.

You know, the site downtime issue might not be as bad as I’d thought it would. I got a three day extension with my web host, which will give me three extra days to backup all my files.

I originally had most of my files backed up to a hard drive because I knew the importance of having backup, but then that drive became corrupted, and since most of my files had been moved there from older disks…

All my files made after that were backed up to newer drives that still work, and I’ve gotten a brand new drive to be my official nothing-but-blackstreetbbw backup drive. That should fix that for the future.
As of right now, all the videos I made before 2011 are safely backed up, as are all the ones from 2015 and most of 2014. In 2013, I don’t think I had uploaded many videos… OTL but 2012 and 2011 were big years and are in big danger, and they’re pretty much the only things that are. Also, so piecemeal backing-up of those years had been done, so even if I got the plug pulled right now, I’d have SOME videos from those years.

Thanks to the three day extension I got, blackstreetbbw will not go totally offline yet. The site’s PRACTICALLY offline, but it’s still running enough to tell people the news. If I can get this smooth enough there should be no more than three days downtime, and people should have prior notice.
