And... I'm Back UP!

Remember me? The girl who sucks at full-fledged blog entries but is a tweeting maniac most days? I start to think about how to approach blogging after, um, not having anything here since September, and then I just decide I'd rather go answer 10-15 fan emails/messages, or post a couple of cam snaps in my TwitPics before I start camming than come back to blogger and confess that I'm awful at blogging again. I think I really just need to re-adapt my style to being LESS RAMBLING. I know, I know the irony! The title of this blog is "The Naughty Nymph Rambles"! Well, perhaps, just perhaps, I will strive to be less wordy. I'm pretty most folks are really just looking for pictures and links anyway. That and to make sure I haven't given up my naked-porno-ways.

Speaking of "giving up" that's exactly what the server that hosts our sites did mid-November, so if you tried to cruise by and my friends sites & and saw this BAD NEWS message -- that's what THAT was about.
Needless to say, it was horrible. Truly, honestly, my heart still goes out to Trixie & Delia because it was such a demoralizing blow for them. The majority of their earnings and their financial way of life comes from operating their sites, and to see their years of hard work go *POOF* over the course of a couple of hours is beyond words. Even with everything being mostly recovered, I still shake my head thinking about it. I've been through major losses with my own hardware, and there was that whole ProAdult fiasco a few years ago when they just up and left the amateur porn webmasters in their AVS -- dropping our figurative dicks in the dirt and shitting all over them, but yeah -- it really bears repeating that even if you think your work is backed up maybe you should back it up a couple more times because the technology that helps us run our lives sure ain't perfect. I was missing some of my most current galleries from my members area because they were backed up on the PC that I lost, but really over the last two years I've been much, much better about not keeping all of my eggs in one basket. I'm even looking forward to any post-Christmas sales at Best Buy or online somewhere so I can get another external hard drive or two just in case...

My site was down long enough for me to think about what it would be like if I didn't have it anymore. As odd as it might sound, I think that was a good experience for me. It's no secret to my hardcore followers that I've not been that together with the adult webmaster part of my life for some time now, but after dwelling in the "it could just all be gone... if I want it to be gone..." feelings for awhile, other feelings surfaced. What I learned from the experience is that I'd LOVE to start again. I really need a website that reflects what I'm doing now. Sure, I still have a thing for panties and pantyhose, but what I've grown most comfortable with since about March is the idea that I'm a helluva good webcam model. I think I've really blossomed (yeah, yeah, AmberLily just said that she's BLOSSOMED) after getting the hang of HD camming on Streamate. So I've already started a revamp for my website. I won't be completely rebuilding everything, but it does need to be made more current.

It's all I can do not to go and register a new, more appropriately fitting url -- maybe even something with a freaking .COM so people can find me more easily!!! -- but I'm going to restrain myself until I get the new pages up. That's my goal. In a couple of months time, to have a redesigned site that will work out for better for a nerdy camgirl like me. Again, I appreciate those of you who've stuck with me through-out the years -- through different payment processors/systems, webcam network site platforms, and now this recent server hard drive failure. I'm gonna try to make sure we get at least one "Members Only" Holiday Camshow before the month of December is out, so check the inside of my members area for that.

Remember that part earlier where I said I was going to try to be less rambling? Guess, I didn't quite make it this time with that new philosophy, huh? I'll be back in later to try again. Maybe even with some Star Wars links. In the mean time, enjoy what's left of the weekend!

PS - Yes, that is me sucking on Obi-Wan in that last webcam picture. Sweet, tasty, middle-aged Obi-Wan...

PPS - I quit the gym. Lasted a whole three months. I think that between walking the dog & masturbating for hours a day, several days a week that I'm good with the calorie-burning.
