Just a reminder:
If you are still following me, I have officially switched back to using my permanent blog URL, which was reinstated yesterday:
I will be leaving this temporary blog active, in case I should ever need it again, but I will no longer be posting here unless my permanent blog gets shut down again (heaven forbid).
Thank you for all of your support,
somethingaboutmarys asked: I am sorry, I missed you posting that! I can understand your displeasure, I would be upset too. Good luck!
No worries at all! I wrote to the author of the article to see if I could maybe get tumblr to “review” my blog and reinstate it like the others, but I’m trying not to get my hopes up too high…
I could really use
somebody to put some sunscreen on my back and ass and anywhere else I can’t reach…
Anonymous asked: Mistress Maria, I have a hunch about why they deleted your old blog. The first time I visited it each day on my iPad, I was forcibly redirected to a page selling some lame porn app called "Badoink" or something like that. It only happened on my iPad, not my laptop, and it seemed affiliated with the ad running in the left column. To be honest, I almost stopped visiting your blog, since it was annoying to type out the URL and get that filth instead of you.
Thanks. It was a hard decision to put ads on my blog, but I tried to choose inconspicuous ones and hoped that I would raise enough money to pay for my Fetfest ticket. Unfortunately due to having my blog shut off, I lost access to the small amount I had earned anyway, which doesn’t make me a happy camper.
If I were to do it again, I would compare different advertisers even more than I did the first time, before choosing one.
However, ads *are* allowed on tumblr AND I offered to tumblr that I would remove all ad systems if that was the problem, but they refused to acknowledge me. I am secure that what happened to my blog is the same thing that happened to the blogs in this article that I posted two days ago: http://girlsrulesubsdrool.tumblr.com/post/29861183942/oh-my-god
alwaysswitching asked: Saw your post about scening again. I may be moving back to the DC area soon. Any groups you'd particularly recommend in the area? Are they on FetLife?
I haven’t gone to any yet but I plan to! I will be at both of these orientations this coming September: http://www.the-crucible.com/Dungeon101.htm
BESS seems to be a good resource: http://www.bess-md.org/home.shtml
Other things to look for on fetlife are:
Annapolis Area Kinksters
For stores, there is Chained Desires in Baltimore (haven’t gone but I am planning a trip) and Le Tache in Alexandria (amazing 3 story store accessible on the metro line - the other locations are not as good)
Hope this helps,
