More than a few of you might have discovered that under my blog rolls there are a few I've tagged as NSFW indicating that their content is - ehm - not safe for work (something that English speakers probably are familiar with but international readers might not). Currently the NSFW blogs on my blog roll include:
The designation is there because all three blogs have what might be unsuitable material for minors as well as for office reading. You might have seen a few similar sites elsewhere: Blogs that compile erotic or pornographic material for the enjoyment of their readers as well as - sometimes - to make a buck.
The blogs on my blog roll are there for a simple reason: Their editors have reached out to me and requested a link exchange while also expressing admiration for my work at Blabbeando.
The result is actually a bit amusing: Blabbeando is listed on their blog rolls as one of the few news oriented resources in a sea of linkages to other erotic pages and Blabbeando gets a surprisingly high amount of hits from these pages in return. Not sure if people who travel here are dissapointed to find out there's no porn at Blabbeando (even if there has been some nudity from time to time). Bizarrely most of those hits also come from outside the United States (mostly Europe and Latin America) which might be understandable with international sites but even with the SF-based Restoring Love the same is still the case.
Anyway, recently Restoring Love told me they were interested in featuring Blabbeando as one of their favorite blogs which was nice of them and I said yes. They actually set up a brand new Best Gay Bloggers Blog and - what do you know - there I am listed (along with another 88 best gay blogs!).
One thing is certain: Not sure that these sites observe copyright laws but it certainly looks as if a lot of hard work is put into them. In any case, thanks for the traffic guys.
