Happy Saturday all - I'm off in a few minutes to help my local park replenish sand in the park's sandboxes. It's probably going to rain, it might snow, the group that's organizing this doesn't seem to be very organized but hey, it's better than dicking around my apartment for the next three hours and posting things on Facebook. :)
Anyway, wanted to drop a note to you all to ask your advice - while I was searching for pics of Blue Blake for the blog post the other day, I encountered a lot of great photos that I took during my years in the porn industry - some, for example, from the Bad Boys parties that were, at one time, behind a pay wall (and which helped me afford to throw them- and allowed more money from the actual event to go to the charity) and some that are just random party shots that I took at one point or another and/or shots from my Cocktails with the Stars event (1999- 2002).
I'd kind of like to share them but, as with all of you, but it's a lot of material and would take a lot of time to scan and post etc. I don't want to do another pay wall here on this blog (I find them to be a kind of pain in the ass to manage, to be honest, and I wasn't really impressed with the companies that I worked with in the past). Also: I don't want to just post pics out of context, I'd like to do some sort of blog stuff with them.
So, I'm putting this out to all of you as to thoughts that you might have. Maybe it's regular/chronological blog posts incorporating pics - and having some sort of advertising along the sides to help pay for my time in putting it together ??? or maybe it's a Kickstarter type thing (although I'm at a loss to know what I could offer as incentives). I don't want to just post them on Facebook because, well, as I understand it, technically Facebook then 'owns' that content ... and frankly, some of it (not very much but some) is NSFW according to FB's guidelines (which I support by the way).
I'm not looking for a get rich quick scheme or anything like that but given the response to blogs where I've told stories of my history in relation to porn celebs (for example, the posts where I eulogize friends from the industry), it seems that there is an audience for this.... and I've had more than one request over time to do more of that type of storytelling.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts,comments - you can leave them here (below) in the comment section or on FB. Not really looking for "who the fuck cares about your stories?" nasty ass comments so if that's your reaction, please feel free to keep that shit to yourself. :)
