Sometimes I get to that point where I get burnt out.....
How many times can you recreate yourself??? I lead the way with the whole blogging thing and I have five years under my belt.
Putting together a post was easy in 2005, everything was New and Fresh. I wanted to make sure I documented everything. It was the rise from a No Name Nobody to this Diesel Washington persona.
I look back at the stories of my travels across the US and I have to remind myself of all the things I have done. I forget sometimes that I have experienced so many things in such a short period of time. When I first retired, I just wanted to take things slow again and enjoy Life. Before that everything was a competition to Me, I had to get more Press, Do more Vids, get all the exclusive footage I could. I was constantly pushing to do more...
I'm Old School!! I knew that the Internet was going to take over the Porn Industry. Coming from that Class of Models that did strictly DVD, I had to program myself to be open to this new era of porn. At first it was the Big Studios that had the lock on the Porn game. Websites were emerging and cashing in on the New Market that the Internet created. Platforms have changed, and now Websites are Competing against Big Studios. Before there was a thing about being "Overexposed", now its the more popular a model, the more work that model gets. Before if you performed in a bareback movie, you had to wait at least a year before attempting to find work with well known Studios. Now... if you did a string of bareback porn, you write a blog about How Stupid you were.. And if your "Popular" the industry looks the other way...
Before, the future stars were coming from websites and then made the jump to Big Studio work. Now, the future stars come from X tube, Dudetude.... Before, it was to have the body of a Man, Gym Rat body that made Man drool. Now its to have a worked out body but not be Huge!!! More of a Jock frame. Before Hype was built on models being mysterious and having to wait on the next Vid to see your favorite star. Now there is Twitter, Facebook, Skype, Youtube, X tube, DudeTube bah bah bah. So the updates that fans get are minute by minute, they know where their favorite stars are 24/7. Shit you can Tweet from you toilet, take a picture of it and send it out to all your fans.
The Blogging game changed as well, only a few porn stars had running blogs. The few that had blogs, wanted to have a home where fans could come and see more of them. We shared personal stories and pictures of trips and projects. Now everybody has a blog, its like a basic requirement of being a porn star. The bloggers are getting more personal, Press opportunities are coming left and right and I can't complain.
I feel old sometimes, nobody will give me credit for making blogs popular for the Porn Star. At least I will survive knowing that I won the First ever Award for a Porn Star blogger!! Since everybody has a blog, I have to keep stepping up my game!!! Keep making things interesting on this thing, its still my baby!!
I have some interesting changes coming up for this blog just stay tuned!!!
Oh did I mention that I'm Burnt??:
