Northern Spanking's shiny newish website

Posted at 15:00 on 8 Jul 2020 by Pandora / Blake

A while back, the lovely folk over at Northern Spanking released their new website. I've been meaning to blog about it, because, well - I made it! It had been in the works for a few years and was a long journey from start to finish, and it wound up being a project that I'm really proud of. I think the new site offers some things I've not seen as part of a spanking porn website before, and I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you about it.

I built the new site using the same CMS we use over at Dreams of Spanking, so Northern Spanking now share some of its best and most innovative features. Many membership sites have "tour" pages for people who are considering joining, usually rather out of date, but we've both decided to avoid that approach. Northern Spanking, like Dreams, now has fully-integrated free preview versions of every page, allowing you to explore the search and tagging systems and see a preview of any scene you fancy before committing to join. I'm a big fan of this approach, because it lets potential new members get a much better sense of what they’ll get once they’ve paid for their subscription.

A series of data disasters

Posted at 10:06 on 15 Jul 2020 by Pandora / Blake

Meme image: The Count from Sesame Street saying One disk failed! Two disk failed!Shooting porn generates a lot of data.

For years I bought another cheap external USB hard drive every time my storage filled up. I meant to sort out proper backups, but I never got round to it. I had loads of duplicate data on different drives, I couldn't afford the storage to back it all up without de-duping, and I didn't have time to de-dupe.

You can see where this is going.

Northern Spanking & ethical spanking porn

Posted at 12:28 on 17 Jul 2020 by Pandora / Blake

I made a post recently about Northern Spanking, a site very close to my heart. They've recently(ish) unveiled a brand new website that I think has a lot to offer the online spanking community, and it was an honour to act as their web designer and make it all happen. I wanted to follow that up with a closer look at Northern Spanking themselves - who they are, what they do, and why we love working together whenever we get the chance.

I first appeared on the UK spanking scene in 2006, and Northern Spanking was already well established. They've been going since the late 90s, and they're absolutely the industry leaders when it comes to ethics, diversity and inclusivity. Thanks to the UK's unstable and draconian porn censorship laws they're now based in LA, but they were originally a British site - in fact, Northern Spanking was a huge part of how I got my start as a spanking porn performer.
