Chasing Me Chasing You

An uncollared submissive struggling through depression, motherhood, and the constant craving of her next orgasm.

No Escape

After everything with Blogger and the possible changes in their adult content policy, I started to look at all options. Sir and I discussed self-hosting and it’s costs. He has been really supportive of my writing, so we started a search for various domains and web-hosting companies. I found a few that weren’t disgustingly expensive, but then I ran into other problems.

I found a site (which I won’t name, because they were great about the whole thing) that is used by a non-profit Sir works with. And their work is beautiful. I set up my account and got a 14-day trial to test out my site and design it how I liked. And the cost wasn’t prohibitive at all. So I began to tinker. My posts and photos imported without too much trouble. Finding a design and template were easy. I have some coding experience to help me through some of the bumps and I was happy with how the layout looked. I was ready to hand them money and start out fresh, away from blogger’s eventual tyranny. And then Sir had to go and make a good point.

“Do these guys have any policies about hosting adult content?”  He asked it as if I already knew the answer. Of course, I am not just purchasing a domain name, I am paying this company to host and use their services. Crap.
So, I got into an online chat with their support team. Again, they were very professional and nice. But I asked about the specifics of their terms of use policy, and things went downhill from there. They suggested that my blog may fit into their terms, but I would need to limit nudity as much as possible. And, as the photos Sir took of my tits earlier this week shows, that’s not really going to happen. I don’t post photos that often. Usually Sir is too into a scene to get pictures. Or I take them with my phone, and I have not worked out how you are supposed to get them off of it (computers and I are fine, phones and I have a mutal discord). But anyway, the photos, while few, are usually quite graphic. So, back to the drawing board.
I guess I just feel like if I can get settled into my own site now, it will be easier than trying to move a huge blog later on. And, this blog has posts from 2010 and 2011, which have nothing to do BDSM. I don’t really mind them, but I can imagine that it would be quite confusing to be reading about how Sir and I are trying to get pregnant with our first child and jump to two kids and kink. Plus, I whined a lot back then (I still whine, but I think I am better at wording it). And if blogger decides to ‘update’ its content policy in the future, I don’t know how much time I would have to move before things were deleted.
So, we will see what Sir and I can come up with. There is no time crunch as yet, but as I am looking to re-enter the work force and we are still figuring out if we should buy a house this year or next, I don’t want to be in the middle of a technical move at the same time as a literal one.

    Hi CollaredMom,

    Please go and checkout FetBlogger.com. This has been set up expressly for sex and kink related blogs. Lady M is running the site and it is very professional even though it is only a few weeks old. There are around 20 blogs in various stages of development and the best part it is free, although Lady M gratefully accepts donations. I have two sites up and running that you can check out – thereadingroom.fetblogger.com and Doingthebesthecan.fetblogger.com. The site uses the WordPress suite of applications.

      Honestly, that was the first place I went when blogger went crazy a few weeks ago. And the site looks great. I really want to support what they are doing. The only reason I didn’t jump directly on the bandwagon was my ineptitude with WordPress. I tried it years ago when I started my first blog. It wasn’t awful, but I just found blogger so much easier. I’m not ruling FetBlogger out, I just want to look at all my options.

    I can recommend someone if you want. You’d control the whole thing, obviously adult friendly, your own domain. Just let me know. 🙂 She’s not free but she’s reasonable.

      Thanks. I will private message you. I would love to check out what she can do.
