Joyscape.com -> Joy-Scape.com

If you’re a regular reader you’ll remember this post: "Joyscape – Another One Bites The Dust?"

Well SBC received this comment last night:
joy-scape.com is indeed gone, but some enthousiast [sic] have started a new community for adult bloggers called joy-scape.com
The main reason for joyscape.com to disappear is that the partners are separated and the Main owner didn't profit in the huge amounts of data bloggers generated.
The new joy-scape.com offers a standard 50mb webspace, 40 templates and some more features, it can be checked at the frontpage.

Fiddlin' About

I'm fiddling with the template on this blog folks, so don't be surprised things shuffle around over the next few days.

Attention FeedBurner Fans

from Blogger Buzz:

FeedBurner users - we just added a feature for you. Matt's post on the FeedBurner blog explains it more fully, but in short, you can now specify a URL to which Blogger will redirect your feed's traffic. This means you'll no longer have some subscribers getting your Blogger-hosted feed while others get your FeedBurner feed, and your subscriber count should (as a result) be more accurate.

To enable this functionality, visit your blog's Settings | Site Feed page, and enter your feed's address in the "Post Feed Redirect URL" field.


Note: this feature isn't limited to FeedBurner alone - you can use any feed-mashing service (like Pipes) with it.

Blogger and Adult Blogs

How true is it that Blogger will delete adult blogs? Is this a rumour or should we start thinking about moving to an alternative as has been discussed in a previous post? I will be seriously pissed off if blogger deletes my blog, even if I do have some back-ups in word, as I will lose the comments etc.

I like blogger a lot; I find it incredibly easy to use, something I don't experience with wordpress despite it's popularity. But should I make a back-up now by transferring my content to another platform? How easy is this? Can I just suck my blog from blogger to an alternative? Will this harm the blogger original?

And what about alternatives designed specifically for adult blogs such as sensualwriter and thumbblogger, are these any good?

All experiences, thoughts and opinions would be gratefully appreciated from this novice blogger, thanks!

The Only Constant Is Change

Thanks to those of you who commented on the presentation of this blog. Whether this place stays as it is, or becomes a Wiki or Forum your views are valued and received with thanks.
I’d now like to make another suggestion.

Rather than have the sidebar full of people who undoubtedly have an interest in the topics discussed here, I’d like to reduce the members down to those who have been recent contributors to the actual posts on the blog. That is, I am considering revoking membership to those who have not contributed for perhaps a couple of months.

Anyone can comment on the blog, the last thing I want is for it to be member-only, but keeping the actual list of contributors small will tidy up the sidebar a little and provide focus. If anyone wants to be a member, so they can contribute I’d have no problem with re-inviting them of course.

What do y’all think?

What Do You Do When Someone Steals Your Content

Lorelle VanFossen, who writes here Lorelle on Wordpress, did a great series of posts on protecting your work, finding out if your content has been stolen and the growing trends in content theft:
Update: Lorelle also points to a large roundup article in Smashing Magazine. Smashing Magazine is primarily a design magazine, but this article was too comprehensive to pass up:
