I’m thinking this is gonna be the end for BiE.
It’s been a 12 year long run but let’s face it, the last few years the blog hasn’t been much more than an infrequently posted to Tumblr porn blog.
Honestly, the only reason I didn’t shitcan it two or three years ago was because it made anywhere from a couple hundred to over a thousand bucks a month via Blog Ads. That was basically free money, so why end it as long as the cash was flowing.
But this past month Blog Ads announced their sale to some third party that intended to basically drop all the blogs that weren’t Perez Hilton or those with equally yuuuge traffic levels.
So now that the moola tap is off there’s no reason for BiE to keep going. And the fact that it happens on the 12 year anniversary of the founding of Bill in Exile on Blogger, back when it was over there, makes this seem a good time to pull the plug.
My social media attention has been more Facebook directed of late, so feel free to friend me there. I tend to rant a lot about politics much more there than I ever did here due to the more immediate nature of Facebook.
Bill in Exile will stay up until my web host pulls the plug on it when my final payment to them runs out sometime in the coming weeks.
It’s been a great decade plus run and I thank those of you from the bottom of my heart who have stuck with it all these years.
