Pornokitsch blog announced its end :(
« on: February 20, 2018, 08:59:12 PM »
One of the oldest, best and most funny/snarky genre blogs, http://www.pornokitsch.com/ just announced that they're closing up. :( It's just not as much fun as it used to be and that's in my eyes one of the best reasons to end something.

For those who don't know the blog, I recommend starting to browse it now (or bookmark for later).
If you are familiar with Terry Goodkind, this review is an amazing starting point.  ;D

(Hey Jared (@pornokitsch), we still have the position you left (as our favorite banhammer swinging mod) open. I heard you have way too much free time sometime soonish. ;))

So here's to Jared and the Pornokitsch team. May you find entertaining new projects to keep your extraordinary minds occupied!

Oh, I really liked to read it, and that's where I discovered Rebecca Levene too!

But as xia said, if it's not fun anymore, go out with a bang!

Such a wonderful blog. It's a real shame, but if it's becoming a second job and an unpaid chore then it has to go.

We've lost so many good blogs recently.

I can absolutely related to Jared and Anne's position - Fantasy-Faction caused me real health issues at one point and began to hurt my work pretty significantly even before that. I'm very, very lucky to have the Mods/Jennie/Staff... without them F-F would have been lost a long time ago.

I guess it really shows you that this kind of thing is most definitely a labor of love, and a gift to the community.  I pretty sure everyone else would agree with me in saying we really appreciate you all (Looking at you, @Overlord , @xiagan  and @ScarletBea !)

It's definitely a juggling act trying to do all of that as well as have a life.
