Getting Serious About Crazy Egg

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

This last week has been a little nuts. I got my Windows PC finally, although I am still doing updates from a Mac, but when I set things up the PC knocked out mywWeb and network settings. It took me a couple of days to get back online and I am still trying to catch up on e-mails and column posts. But when I looked through my e-mails I had one from a long time member named Tim. You might have seen the link to his site here. He ran the site Crazy Egg's Female Foot Fetish. Tim informed me he is heading to Iraq to serve the United States. He also told me he has to let his site go for obvious reasons.

I let Tim be the first site to feature the twins as contributions.

I can remember the first few conversations Tim and I had over Yahoo! Instant Messenger. He was in his beginning stages of getting his site together and asked for some contributions from Soles of Silk. He really reminded me of myself when I was getting started years ago when I ran a site on a free Yahoo! Geocities server — even before I had my old site, The 10 Little Piggies. Remembering those days I sent some shots his way and did so several times. I even gave him first dibs on posting Kimmie's and Kellie's first ever set together that quite a few sites had been asking me to post on their sites. He got them first and I made sure of that. And over the months he really started to pull together the design and content. I placed a banner on the home page of the guest section. I have much respect for people, who like myself, do these sites for fun and because of their love of feet and photography above the cash aspect. Tim is one of those people.

Tim told me in his e-mail that he will be leaving in the next couple weeks and I want to take this time to wish him the best of luck and to ask him to keep me informed of how he is doing if he is able to send out some e-mails. I respect what you do for our country and know you're a much stronger person than I could ever be to take on those kinds of challenges. I hope to see you back online again some day and you know I'll send you whatever contributions you desire.

Random Thoughts - October

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

It's been October for a few days now and the days are getting shorter and the weather just a tad bit colder. Both have already screwed up some shoots and/or potential shoots over the last couple of weeks, but there is nothing to worry about, I still have plenty of things that are on the positive side to share with you.

Lauryn will be returning to the site soon.

Lauryn Returns

It's been months since I have been able to shoot Lauryn for Soles of Silk. It was a good thing I had plenty of material of her to last, but we're scheduled to shoot some more this coming weekend. I can't wait and neither can she. She has already reminded me that we (Lauryn, Madison, and myself) never got around to shooting the cookie dough set that everyone voted upon in the beginning of the year. I can assure you, both Lauryn and Madison are excited to get this one in. I just can't wait to eat all the dough!

Video Clips

I fully expect to be placing a teaser clip up either next week or two weeks from now. I have been sitting down the the video software I will be using and learning how to splice clips and add all the transitions in. Some might wonder why it has taken me this long, but the truth is that I had a freelance design project on my shoulders that I just finished. Plus, I also put in my two weeks notice at one of my other jobs, so I've been able to sit down and learn this. I always aim for quality with my work and I think that is what you all deserve. Be on the lookout very soon!

How good does Carmen look in a bikini?

Carmen in a Bikini

Our feature girl on Wu's Feet LinksCarmen, is back on Soles of Silk this week in her bikini. Everyone loved the train track set for Wu, so I'm anxious to see your reactions to this set.

Where are the African American Models?

I'll have you know I have been diligently pursuing African American females to pose their feet here on Soles of Silk. I found one who I was really interested in, but as I've heard from a couple of other black ladies, she hated her feet and would pose for anything but that. The search hasn't been going as well as I'd like, but I did get another girl who said she is interested that I am aiming to bring on board. I cannot wait!

Sole Mate Awards 2005

When I opened Soles of Silk on Dec. 31, 2004, I had given out awards called "Silkies" to those models from around the web who I thought had the best (fill in category) and made an award graphic for their sites (see blog: "Presenting the 2014 Silkies"). This year I will be doing the same, but I also want to give you the chance to vote on a contest among the sole mates. I need some categories from all of you and in the next month or two I will start voting on the contest. What I'll be looking for are things like: Best Soles, Best Arch, etc. But here is where you can help, what kind of categories do you want to see? Perhaps you have some unique ones that I haven't thought of. Photo of the Year? Photo Set of the Year? The possibilities are endless, send me your ideas now.
