Ten Years! But Not Counting Anymore...

Newly retired, I started this blog on April 2, 2008, exactly ten years ago, as a hobby for a long time fan of women combats. I was curious to see if there were many people around the world interested in the subject. And certainly there have been a lot of people! On its peak (2012 to 2014), when I used to publish daily posts, the Blog received more than 40,000 visits by month from more than 100 countries  (40% from US).

The women combat show business (can we use the word?) is thriving, regardless of losses on production side like the DWW shutdown and changes in management like APL; you may check the link list on this page right side and verify that. On the other hand, the so-called "sharing sites" are also stuffed with thousands of full videos of women combat, not exactly helping the producers. For ten years I have stuck with my own rule of posting a maximum of three minutes or less of a video. Most of the producers understood that was good advertising and never complained.

From my side, I enjoyed the ride but it is time to stop. I don´t really have the energy and time to make even a weekly post anymore. Google, whose Blogger and YouTube services I extensively use, is not the same as before. I have had frequent technical problems with the first one - site not found, search engine not working. And YouTube has had the nasty habit of removing my playlists which only referred to third party online clips. In fact, Google does not have any interest in supporting sites like the Female Fight Theater as they don´t make a penny of advertising revenue with it (they don´t advertise on adult sites).

Anyway, the Female Fight Theater is going to stay on Google Blogger exactly as it is today although without regular posts and updates. I don´t discard publishing in the future when I feel adequate.
And I will be still available by email.

Thanks for your support along the years!

    And I agree about Google! They have the 'reverse Midas Touch': Everything they touch turns to shit!!!!!!

  14. Thnx for all the nice work on this blog; always nice to peek in on what's new. Particularly like the effort on what was and some of the 'older' performers on which other sites didn't bother to reflect on.

    Anyway, thnx for all the good work; it is highly appreciated from here somewhere in a tiny town in a small country called The Netherlands :) Cheers! Airlock.
