Was the site open the day you made this post (the 21st)? Cause as of today (the 22nd) if you go to the site there's nothing but a "Sorry, We're closed" jpeg. Looks like the site owner explained why he closed the site in the jpeg.

I will start by stating the most obvious reason first. 1) It never made money, nor had it even broke even. I kept it going for the true love for feet and I enjoy photography, web coding and photoshop'ing, so it gave me practice if nothing else. Had it at minimum broke even to cover hosting costs and model fees, I think I would have kept it going.
2) In 2016, I "thought" I met the girl i was to be with, my forever person as we say...and sadly she did not like me photographing women AT ALL... not even in a snowsuit lol. So I thought to myself, why not close it down.. it'a making me no money. So in 2016 I shut it down for her and told myself I will learn to love to take photos of landscapes and birds and tree bark and snails and all that boring crap.
Well, we broke up... and thus the start of 2017 I pumped new life into the site and brought it back to life. At this point i thought, I won't prey that it makes money and I won't be desperate to update the site in a timely and consistent fashion, I will simply go with the flow and whatever happens happens.
Well in 2017 I had a total of 4 new faces...and the very last one I had was the beginning to better photography skills. You see, I was not overly concerned with photo quality at the time as I wanted to build content and followers, but since closing and reopening the site, I started to get serious.
So, I also opened a brand new site strictly to improve my photography skills and to be taken more serious in the work that I do. SO I started looking for models for my new venture (not for profit) so I could get better and better and showcase my photography skills.
So just recently, I had finally shutdown the site again since I barely got anyone to sign up to pay the small fee. Plus, it's extremely hard..for me at least... to find women that will date me knowing I run a foot fetish site. Even my new site, which is not feet related, but still involves women worries some potential dates.
Don't get me wrong, if the site made money, that sucker would still be running strong as we speak lol. My only goal was to make money to a) cover costs and b) cover the modeling fees at minimum.
Do I think about restarting it using my new photography skills to provide waay better images than my old content? You bet your ass. I think about reopening it, this time making it mobile friendly and showcase way better quality images....and you never know. The feeling was strong today. It's just hard to gain great models for my other project if it gets out I also run a foot site...that's the fear... that plays money *sigh*. You see, I did a stupid thing when I thought I found my forever person, I bought myself a used card and stuck it on my line of credit. So now, I have car insurance, gas and maintenance to worry about each month...and I never had much money to afford to spend on the site in the first place... this makes it harder.
Anyhow, it's great that some of you still remember my site and some of you actually liked it. It's touching and I truly appreciate it. Like I said, the thought of starting fresh with new content is enticing...and it's on my mind a lot lately. If I brought it back to life, I would do it a tad differently, not sure if I could still do girl on girl smelling and licking content as it's expensive to cover model's fees to have them do that lol... but tempting for sure.
You never know, I may just start it again very soon.... or it may stay dead.
Incase you're wondering what my other site is since i mentioned it a couple times.. here it is.
I've been told it's about the journey, not the destination. Sadly, money interferes with life often. It's sad to see you had the situations you did and they caused you to shut down. Hopefully you have a ton of great memories with the work you've done and it helped to improve your photography skills as much as possible.
Thank you my friends. It's still on my mind... since I feel I have improved a lot photography wise... it is very tempting to give the site another go just for fun and incorporate my new skills to new foot content.
