SO LONG, AND THANKS FOR ALL THE FISH

{Posted in Blog Love, Blog Stuff, Blogger Ennui, SO LONG! on December 22nd, 2016 by Scott }

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.

Peace

8,000,000

{Posted in Blogger Ennui on January 25th, 2014 by Scott }

At some point in the last month or so the blog went past the 8 million visitors mark since I started it way back in 2004/05.

I’m aware that I’ve really let it go to seed — but this project here in Louisville is turning into a total time suck and, let’s be honest here, I’ve been phoning in the blog for pretty much the past year.

I’m gonna keep posting to it with the intention of making it to December of 2014 — which will mark the blog’s tenth anniversary — and then I’ll take stock of things.

If I find I haven’t been able to spend the time with it that it deserves I’ll pull the plug — since ten years is a nice anniversary to wrap things up.

In the meantime I’ll try to be a better blogger and post more often and more interesting stuff.

SOMETHING I JUST DON’T FATHOM

{Posted in America, Assholes, Blog Stuff, Blogger Ennui on November 16th, 2013 by Scott }

In a recent post here a reader commented that he was proud of the fact that he had voted for George C Plus Augustus Bush not once, but twice.

OK, I get how a person who was maybe not paying a lot of attention and who was maybe also a conservative republican would get snookered by that whole “compassionate conservative” line of complete and utter bullshit the first time around in 2000.

Or the fact that Bush, a man who was born on third base but who was convinced that he had hit a triple to get there, sold himself as the first MBA president and would run this country like an efficient business {ignoring the fact that Shrub had pretty much bankrupted every business he ever ran}.

But by the election of 2004 it was clear to anyone with just two synapses firing in their fucking brain, and who was paying even the slightest attention, that Bush was an unmitigated disaster and didn’t deserve to be elected as county dog catcher in West Bumfuck Texas — let alone returned to office as President of the United States.

But then! Then after the horror of Katrina in 2005, the total abortion that the Iraq War had obviously become due to administration bungling and incompetence, the failure to finish off the Taliban and kill Bin Laden because Bush/Cheney ginned up a fake reason to invade Iraq and took the eye off the ball, followed by the financial crisis and the Great Recession and the fact that Bush increased the national debt from the $18 billion under Clinton in 2000 to $1.632 TRILLION by the end of his second term . . . .

Well, I just don’t know how an even slightly rational person can be proud of the fact that he voted for Bush TWICE!

AND CROW ABOUT IT ON A LIBERAL GAY BLOG NO LESS!

I thought I had long ago rid this blog of the pestilence of idiot reader/commenters.

Apparently not.

 

OY!

Some fucknozzle with WAY too much free time on his hands decided to take me to task in the comments today {don’t bother looking for it — I deleted it since it was really lame} for not updating my personal info here in the BIE About section.

He was annoyed that it still says I live in Seattle.

Really?!?!

REALLY!?!?!

This is the kind of shit that bothers people?

That a porn blogger doesn’t update his personal info in the About section of his blog in a timely enough fashion?

OK, so here’s my update — Get a fucking life already you twat.

MY APOLOGIES FOR THE SUCKY BLOGGING

{Posted in Blogger Ennui on June 24th, 2013 by Scott }

I’ve been involved in very complex negotiations the past few weeks and have allowed the blog to suffer because of it.

I’ll be back to normal blogging fettle in just a couple of days — hopefully — and then I can get back to ranting about shit and posting more regularly all the pics of hot menz that I’ve come across lately.

A BIE MILESTONE — SUCH AS IT IS

{Posted in Blog Love, Blog Stuff, Blogger Ennui on April 13th, 2013 by Scott }

This blog just hit 60,000 comments posted to it from you guys since it went live back in . . . whatever year this blog went live in.

2004, when it was a blog on Blogger and before I migrated it to WordPress.

comments

I’ve also posted more than 9,600 posts since that time way back when in the Dark Ages of blogging history.

Being a blogger for almost ten years is kinda like being a dog — or like being in a gay relationship — since a blog year is like 7 regular years for normal people.

Also, too; you folks sure have a lot to say!

BLOG HOUSEKEEPING

{Posted in Blogger Ennui, Housekeeping on April 9th, 2013 by Scott }

Just a quick heads up to you comment posters out there — there’s a new form of comment spam that’s been showing up in the blog’s spam folder.

Where most comment spam is just a couple of lines long, this is hundreds and hundreds of lines long. Thus necessitating me scrolling interminably through it in order to check to make sure that none of your legit comments have been inadvertently shunted into the blog’s spam folder.

I’m not gonna waste my time fucking with this shit so until this new spam decides to “go away” I’m simply deleting whatever ends up in the spam folder without bothering the screen any of it.

So if you post a comment and it gets lost in the ether — that’s what happened to it and you should try again.

As with most comment spam, this is more than likely just a new spam fad and will go away in the coming days when the Russian spammers responsible for it realize its not effective.
