Too hood for the nerds
Too weird for the thugs
Literally all of us.
I’m highly skilled in Photoshop yet I’m too lazy to make my own damn memes. Why tho?
Or: you work in the adult industry and now you’ve been banned or suspended from social media. Most likely for good. This is my current situation, since last year August 2020 on Twitter.
First let me say that I am not a sex worker but I can relate to this as I am an internet marketer who promotes adult entertainment. Both things tend to be intertwined as there wouldn’t be adult entertainment without sex workers. Even if it is just “virtual” I have to at least know wtf I’m talking about in order to market it effectively. I’ve been in this industry for 10 years.
+ Create your own property. Make sure you pick a web hosting company that allows adult XXX themed sites. Once your website is up and running, post good content and SEO the heck out of it. You will start to get organic traffic in no time. Even if you have to describe yourself in ridiculously obvious ways (ex: dark haired, brown skin, heavily tattooed big booty fat girl or whatever), do it anyway because that is exactly how people tend to search.
+ Buy your own traffic. You can build your own audience by doing so.
+ If you really need to get back on social media, maybe it’s best to get a new phone or a new computer. Or both. I know that I can’t get back on because of my devices. They pretty much know who I am. So if I were to get back on, I would have to get a new phone or a new computer. And post normal shit like a regular person and not do anything that might get me banned.
The sad thing is, even if you didn’t do anything wrong – there’s still a good chance you might still get banned. This is the world we live in now.
+ Pay others to promote you or do some kind of barter. I know spending money to promote doesn’t sound so great. Which is why the first two options are the best one, I think.
+ Find other online communities to hang out in. Nobody likes being promoted or advertised to, so it’s best to build relationships with your prospects.
+ Thinking large here than just trying to join another online community but maybe you can collaborate with like-minded individuals to create a whole new platform. I have been thinking for a while now that the adult entertainment industry – whether they’re small or large players – needed their own social media platform, a place online where we could hang out and post all the adult content we wanted. Instead of trying to mingle with mainstream entertainment, those who want to actually be there would come and sign up.
I know most of these suggestions don’t sound good because you have to spend money before you can see a return on investment.
Why did I get suspended anyway? I don’t really know but supposedly I violated their terms. Also when you work for a company that deals with adult content and provides adult entertainment services, there’s always competition. So there’s a high chance that someone didn’t like that we were promoting so much and started reporting or flagging us so we would be out of the picture.
Unfortunately, that’s part of the business; when people see you as competition they’ll find a way to eliminate you.
If it can happen to someone like me who is an absolute nobody, then I’m sure sex workers will be next (if it isn’t already happening). I mean, just look at Instagram’s new TOS. And how right-wing conservatives targeted Pornhub.
Expect more of this to happen so don’t get attached to your social media accounts. But also know that adult traffic will not go away. There’s so much you can do with it. But you’ll have to be okay with spending money.
* I didn’t know what photo to add to this post, so here’s a test image of a candy text effect in Photoshop. I use it a lot for my adult graphics. This is the tutorial I followed.
The meme says:
This might be my favorite meme of all time. I LOL every time because I see myself in it A LOT.
Questions to think about today is: where is Mars in your natal chart? What sign and house is it in? And how does it play out in your life?
For me, Mars is in Leo in the 7th house. Still don’t know what that fully means, I only understand the basics of it.
Mars – the planet of assertive (sometimes aggressive) actions & desires
Leo – a fixed fire sign; known to persevere in their actions. The word I’m actually looking for is loyalty.
7th house – the area where relationships are concerned.
So then you combine or synthesize the three aspects together to create a statement that makes sense to the person.
For me, I interpret this as someone who is assertive and usually gets what they want when it comes to relationships; this could be in marriage or general partnerships. They also tend to last in the relationship (loyalty) so long as there is passion, fun, creativity, excitement.
*As I write this I can’t help but think of Roxy, my one Leo friend.🦁 I seriously miss that girl.
Today marks 14 years since my mom passed away.
I don’t really visit her where her bones are resting, yet she manages to visit me. That probably sounded creepy, but trust me it’s not. Once a human merges with Spirit, I believe a part of them inhabits the things they loved during their time here that reminds us strongly of them. If that makes any sense.
For example, the spirit of my mom inhabits piano music.
I have been listening to different versions of The Mandalorian theme song all weekend while listing crystals online and studying astrology…
it wasn’t until I heard the piano version that I started to cry. During her earthly life, my mom played the piano and was a piano teacher on the side.
There have been too many instances where a piece of piano music reminded me of her and instantly brought me to tears. Being a fire & air sign mostly, I just don’t cry very often.
I think she would’ve loved and appreciated this theme song and would’ve played it on her grand piano beautifully.
So don’t think spirit contact is what you see on TV – seeing a ghost or a human apparition and getting scared. Or messing around with a Ouija board. With spirit contact, we’re not really seeing with our physical eyes. I really feel like it’s more subtle and heart based, as I have never seen a ghost of my mom but felt her energy and knew it was her. I cried uncontrollably. And it’s alway through piano or Christian music that she will visit.
Anything that has energy in motion can contain a spirit. In this case, it is music…and my mom left an imprint of her soul.
I have been grappling with this question for some time now and I finally have an answer that I’m satisfied with:
So there. That is the answer.
There is no point in fighting myself about it.
Or feeling bad that I can’t be consistent with any of them.
Anyway, here is a digital doodle of some pentacle flowers as I’ve got investments, money and visions of a future where we can all thrive on my mind. More than ever since we are now in the Age of Aquarius. The self and the collective are intertwined.
I also wanted to share this: if you’re feeling confused about your life and all your impulses – why you do the things you do, what motivates you, why you constantly contradict yourself, etcetera; I highly suggest looking at your astrological birth chart or getting a natal chart report. Astrology has answered so many questions for me, personally.
Also, if you’re in the giving mood please take a look at this awesome Instagram called Transanta.
Even though social media is a big part of my day job, I’m not a fan of it as much these days. If you follow me on ANY of my Instagrams then you know I’m also not very consistent with any of them anymore. My internet life has gotten a lot quieter and I actually don’t mind. I think when I got suspended on Twitter in August 2020 (and it was for good btw, even though Twitter said in an email that I didn’t actually commit any violations ((ok, then wtf))), it gave me time to really think about what it is I enjoy doing.
And right now, social media annoys tf outta me, I find that I need more frequent breaks from it. I don’t have the same attention span. Which is why I haven’t been posting as much. It’s not directed towards anyone in particular either, I still scroll daily but not as much.
Also, since the top social media platforms have been heavy handed with the censorship, it’s pointless for me to promote anything adult. So in some ways, it’s pointless to post on social media.
I really like writing and meditation. And yes, even blogging (I still hate that word). It gives me time to hear myself instead of hearing everyone on Instagram or Twitter.
So yeah, I found this on Ice-T’s Instagram. It says:
p.s. I miss my ghost friend, Roxy🖤 – she loved to blog.
Everyone’s waiting for me to start painting again…
It’s bullshit to wait til you’re inspired because when that actually happens
you’re either at work or on the computer or on your phone or washing dishes or feeding the cat or doing laundry or shredding years of paper bills.
I have no one to blame but myself for my lack of artistic pursuits lately.
But then again we’re in a fucking pandemic.
I don’t want to paint roses, women, etc…been there, done that.
So I wait and wait and wait…
Do you ever mourn the person that you once were?
It’s a trip how one’s ego motivates you for a long time. For over 20 years, painting graffiti was all I ever gave a shit about. That and making sure my profession was somewhat creative.
Then my mom died in 2006 and even though I still painted, the desire to paint consistently started to fade away. I’m not going into details, but other people ruined it for me too.
Your consciousness changes over time. You are the same person but different.
I didn’t realize that I would also experience a death of some sorts, but I did. I’ve died over and over.
Copied and pasted from my birth chart report:
Your Sun is in the 10th House of your birth chart meaning that you’re the sort of person who likes to make your mark on the world, in particular through your profession.
The Sun is in Sagittarius
Your Sun is in the Zodiac Sign of Sagittarius indicating that you’re a sunny and optimistic individual, with a love of adventure. In fact adventure plays a key role in your life, whether it be literally traveling around the globe, or metaphorically speaking exploring the world of ideas and philosophy. You’re particularly enthusiastic about anything that expands your world and helps you forget about daily chores.
I got tired of being on the computer so I willed myself to just draw something. It started with the needles / leaves on the bottom left then the eye, then the skull, then the inverted triangle lines.
I wanted to see a neon color blend so I did so with sharpie highlighters.
Then I added the crystal points.
Roxy’s passing a year later still looms over me, especially now that we’re approaching Samhain. Everything feels so heavy and I’m not in the Halloween spirit at all.
In my birth chart report, the moon is in the 8th house and it says:
The Moon is placed in the 8th House of your birth chart suggesting that you are a sensitive person. Your emotional antennae are switched on to high . This may have something to do with an event connected to your mother or childhood.
As a result you may develop a need to understand the cycles of life and the metaphysical nature of the world. Why do people behave in the way that they do? What affect do the natural cycles have on human behaviour? What happens after death?
You’ve the ability to develop your interest in the occult world and to use your discoveries for practical results in your own and other people’s lives.
She waits for me in the ethers
Where space and time never existed
It’s peaceful, serene but lonely…even though my mother and her father keep her company
She misses her family and best friends on the earth plane
She misses her beautiful human form
She always wanted to be a sad girl
And now her wish came true
For everyone can see her
But no one can hear her no more
It’s been one year since my friend Roxy passed. I wish I had taken the day off.🖤
I did see a sign from her today; on my way home from work a white car in front of me had the letters “RBM” on their license plate.
