So...did we all have fun yesterday? I hope so, because things are changing here on the CBEB. In fact, I may have to change the blog's name. I know you all love the hunks, and I'd hate to disappoint anyone, but I also don't want to go looking for trouble.
I received a take-down request from a model/photographer yesterday. I deleted the post, but it's only a matter of time before I receive others. Apparently this is becoming a problem for us bloggers, and coming on the heels of the notice of the change in Blogger's policy, I wonder if it isn't time for the fun to end.
I have posted a blog every single day since the CBEB's inception on December 4, 2008, and I'm very proud of that fact. Most of the pics used here were sent to me by readers and blog followers. I have no idea where they came from and giving credit to every model and photographer is impossible. The post I deleted was over a year old, and I doubt that any of my regular followers ever go back that far. I know I don't.
This photographer also brought a site to my attention that is an adult bookmark site. My entire blog was there, which includes not only his photograph, but my family photos as well. I have sent a takedown request to that site and hope they will comply.
Another problem I'm dealing with is that of e-book returns. People are buying my books on Amazon, reading them, and returning them for a refund. Other self-pubbed authors assure me that the more sales I have, the more returns I will get. To me, that's stealing, and I'm guessing some models and photographers feel that posting pictures on my blog is also stealing. Not wanting to be the pot calling the kettle black, I have unpublished this entire blog and will go forth without the erotic pics.
I will continue to blog, but the hunk pictures, I'm sorry to say, will be missing.
We've had a great time here, and we've made a lot of friends. I'm sad to see it end.
