  • A Good Problem To Have

    Travis lying naked with a basket of fruitI had to take the site down for a couple of days as we begin to deal with some maintenance issues that have begun to arise. The original server where I began the site was an independent server that contained several other sites. The last couple of months, as my site has gown, it’s now larger than what the original server can handle and at the rate of speed it’s growing would soon cause damage to the original server. It’s not the volume of he content but the volume of traffic flow and it can no longer handle the bandwidth of so much traffic. We felt the need to move and upgrade the project to a bigger server. In actuality this is a good problem to have. The numbers of hits and flow of traffic through the site are staggering; I had no idea that the site would be come this popular. As the amount of unique visitors grows to thousands each month (return visitors) this indicates that site is a huge success. About 75 percent of the people visiting the site keep returning. The site now gets 90,000 page views with about 300,000 hits per month.

    The last couple of days as we have been trying to migrate the site to the new server we have encountered some issues with ghosting between the servers and we are in the process of cleaning up some problems that created broken links for images and galleries. There are still many of the links from the blog into the website that will still be broken. You can still navigate the blog and the index I have created of the entire year-long blog project is functional. But any links to images may not work. I am sorry for the inconvenience and we should have everything back to normal in the next couple of days.

    This is a good problem to have since what began as a simple blog communication between other artist friends working in the subject of nude male art and grown to a larger audience of appreciation.

    Thank you for your patience and support on the project.
