Facebook Unpublished My Page, Hushes

It never fails. Whenever I put aside time to work on my social media profiles something happens. Earlier in the month I set aside time to work on my Facebook page and oddly enough on the day (September 22nd) I was going to go over all things Facebook my page was “unpublished” at approximately 3:04 AM. It is a cute way of saying my page has been suspended.

Well, we all know phone sex is not porn, so that isn’t the problem. And we also know I adopted a “no pink” policy years ago and incorporated that policy into all my profiles. So, nudity wasn’t an issue. What is equally frustrating is that the appeal process amounts to pushing a button and that’s about it. I found the whole thing upsetting and demoralizing. How so? You have no idea how difficult it is to run a business in this industry. Phone sex owners have the same issues as other business leaders with the added annoyance of discrimination. And, for that we pay more in fees from hosting to merchant accounts. We’re hassled for every little thing including where we bank, what lawyers and accountants will accept our business and social media is an absolute minefield because it is constantly changing. I wouldn’t mind the changes it they weren’t unpublished. Ha! Did you see that I made a funny.

As you know I get up up at o’dark thirty (that ‘o’ as in the letter not zero …damn movie). After I feed the animals, take a walk or swim and bathe, I grab some food and sit down in front of the computer to handle my business and personal correspondence before turning on the phones. One of the reasons I need that 2-3 hour cushion is because I am one of those people. How many times have you logged on to your social media account and met with a big warning statement indicating that there is an amendment or update to the terms? Well, I am that one person out of a googol (ha! another funny) who stops what I am doing and reads it. I know. It’s sick. One day I will seek help but right now I am a little busy reading these damn conditions. So, I spent the day (and later the week) going over every inch of print regarding business owners having their pages suspended and the depths they took to get their pages reinstated. My conclusion? Fuck that!

I appealed the decision and less than 24 hours later my page was deleted! So, once my page is “unpublished” it remains unavailable to the public forever unless I appeal it. When I appeal it (which involves pushing a button and nothing more) the page is permanently deleted. Nice. So, fuck Facebook.

August Is the Best Month To Visit

I love August! If you have yet to visit our nation’s capital, then August is the best time to visit. First, every member of Congress is out of town, and secondly most of the tourists are long gone. Couple that with the fact that the weather has changed from oppressively hot and humid to warm with plenty of cool breezes adding a hint of fall, August is without a doubt the best month to visit. The museums and all the hot tourist spots are less crowded. You can get a great table at some of the best restaurants in minutes. It’s so slow around here most of the taxi drivers take their vacation in August. Yes, August is the one time of year when the Washington, DC metro area has the pace of a Southern town – slow and steady.

Around this time I take my time shopping at the farmer’s market. I may pick up a new class or spend a little more time with family and friends enjoying the last few outdoor concerts for the year. I guess you have to be here, but the place is truly cathartic this time of year. Some joke and say it’s because all the politicians are out of town. I don’t know. Maybe just maybe there is something to that.

Memorial Day Weekend

Tomorrow begins the 3-day Memorial Day weekend which is the most traveled holiday of the year and in terms of traffic accidents the most dangerous. Please make sure you check your car e.g. tires, mirrors, first aid kit, and drive like the responsible drivers I know each of you are.

While I know this holiday has been bastardized as the “unofficial first day of summer” or another day of shopping, let’s not forget the reason behind Memorial Day – to honor our war dead especially now as we are still a nation at war. If you have a family member or friend no matter how distant who made the ultimate sacrifice, call on their loved ones and if their is no one around to remember them visit their grave or take a moment to remember them.

Cinnamon Cake Recipe for Mother’s Day Brunch

As you guys know I bake nearly every day. Here is a really simple quick cake recipe for whenever you have the munchies and desire something sweet. It’s perfect for Mother’s Day brunch and has the added benefit of making your home smell delicious.

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add the following dry ingredients:

2 cups of flour
1 cup of sugar
salt
cinnamon
2 teaspoons of baking powder

Some of you are probably pulling your hair out wondering how much salt and cinnamon to add. Whenever a recipe calls for something less than ½ a teaspoon I tend to add whatever makes me happy. If you really need to measure, call it a pinch maybe two pinches. Today I am out of baking powder so I substituted it by adding ½ teaspoon of baking soda to the dry and 1 teaspoon of vinegar to the wet.

I like to mix the dry ingredients with a spoon and make a well. Then add to the well the wet ingredients:

2 eggs
1 cup of yogurt
⅓ cup of oil
vanilla extract

Stir everything together and pour half the batter into a loaf pan. To make it interesting in a separate container mix:

¼ cup of brown sugar
¼ cup of sugar
cinnamon

Add half of the sugar mixture to the batter in the loaf pan. Pour the rest of the batter on top and on top of that sprinkle whatever you have left of the sugar mixture. You can get fancy and run a knife through the batter which makes the cake look very interesting when you cut into it.

Bake for 60 minutes, let cool for 10 mins, cut and serve.

It takes about 10 minutes to prep and while baking makes your house smell wonderful. Keep in mind that you can change up the recipe and add bananas to make a banana bread or pumpkin to make pumpkin bread and so forth I hope you enjoy the tip and have a great Mother’s Day with the women in your life.

Hushes.com

I acquired this domain quite by accident. A little over 14 years ago someone came across my site, Cheap Phone Sex, and decided to make an exact copy using a different telephone number. I called my attorneys and the damages were paid via check and ownership of the domain, hushes.com. There have been other lawsuits and in every case I acquired the offending domain. I sold all of them except hushes.com.

Flash forward to 2014 where I find my 14-year old blog located at cheap-phone-sex.net has been caught up in some sort of an algorithmic penalty. Instead of ranking at the top of various search terms I was consistently ranking at the very bottom (if at all). I gave it 50 days to turn around and when that proved to be a lost cause moved my blog to hushes.com. Hmmm …things do have a way of working themselves out.

As my most ardent callers will tell you, I have over the last several months been slowly moving to this point. However, I had to complete the transition within the last month as opposed to the 6 months it would have taken. While this is neither the platform nor design of my choice, it will have to do for now. And for that reason, all I can say is fuck you Google.

I am so over Google Search.

For more than a decade I have naively believed that if you follow the rules and create good content everything will work out fine. Well, I have been at the butt end of various negative SEO tactics, my intellectual property has been stolen more times than I can count and now my site which is almost as old as Google itself has been lumped in with black hat sites. Each time I have had to stop what I am doing (making guys supremely happy) and undo whatever some random and may I add jealous SEO wanna-be type has done to my site. It’s time-consuming, costly and distracting. Frankly, I am sick of it.

To chat with Cheryl, call 1-888-669-6389.Given I have the world’s first, oldest and continuously published phone sex blog, I should be given some kudos. I mean come on! How many adult entertainment sites (not companies but sites) have been around as long as mine? How many have never engaged in spam or other nefarious activities? How about giving me a little authority for keeping my nose clean and sticking it out this long? And if you see something untoward, how about giving me the benefit of the doubt? Seriously, what’s the point of being a good girl if there aren’t any perks?

So, here’s the thing: my phone sex blog has permanently moved to hushes.com. Over the next 18 months my online presence will reflect this move. Everything else is the same namely my toll-free number, 1-888-669-6389, and my rates, $12 for 15-minutes. If you have any questions, ask.
