Welcome to my new website!

11th May 2018

First, let me just say thank you for visiting my new site! I've built it myself! Before I made this, I spent a large amount of time trying to find someone to make it for me. Then I thought, ",Why pay someone to do something I'm more than capable of doing myself?" After all, nobody would be able to capture the essence of Melissa Carter better than Melissa Carter herself!

 

Over the past month many of my regulars and even potential clients have asked me, "Is your website down? That's where I kept track of your schedule." The answer is YES my old website did shut down. Along with my old twitter page to which I had 1500 followers. Now this did not happen by design. It happened by force and without warning. I was at a loss for words. I didn't understand what happened until I remembered hearing about the new FOSTA/SESTA laws that recently passed in the states. My website as well as twitter are both hosted in the USA, meaning both hosts must comply with US law. I knew the laws were passing but I had no idea it would affect me so greatly.

 

So I decided to take a week long break to sort out my next move. I was already thinking of upgrading my site anyway but it was terrible timing under these circumstances. By then I had created a new twitter account with a vow never to post any nudity even though there are many accounts still active that are posting R rated content without a problem. I also created a brand new Switter account which I found out was being hosted offshore in Australia where my profession is legal. That's when a light bulb went off. I knew then that I needed to start looking into offshore support. Unfortunately around that time I had gotten sick due to the constant changing weather. One week it felt like spring and the very next week it snowed pretty badly. What a recipe for disaster!

 

Alas, I had no choice but to extend my break, battle my sickness and still manage my business. It was a lot to deal with but I pushed through. I read online about people fighting against these new laws because it pushed more escorts to the streets and into unsafe working conditions. Many people who were not experienced working as an independent companion were left without a clue of what to do next. They lost everything they knew and were forced to downgrade. After everything I've been through when I first entered this industry (a story for another blog post), I knew that I would never be forced to downgrade. I was lucky to have enough experience as well as  the drive to persevere. I wanted to always be moving forward and upward. Upgrading and blossoming into something so much more than average. That's when I knew that I had to step it up a notch. I was going to be a shooting star from out of the darkness. So I needed to form a plan.

 

After extensive research, not only did I find a website host offshore but it was an ADULT website host. How perfect is that? As I slowly started to feel better, I realized I had a photoshoot coming up. I knew I wanted to do something classic as well as something creative and original. I carefully selected a talented photographer who was willing to get messy with me and help me create the photos I envisioned. After my photoshoot. I worked rigorously on my website, going through every detail with a fine comb and ensuring it captured my essence perfectly. Now my website is easier to navigate and much more interactive than my last one.

 

All the while all I could think was, "Keep going Melissa! You can do this! You deserve this! You deserve only the best from now on and so do your clients!" I understood that following a path to greatness would mean I'd lose some clients as I rose above their price range. However, I'm not afraid of change. Positive thinking helped me understand that though I may lose some clients I will certainly attract more and those who love me enough will follow. I know this in my heart. Nothing will stop me from being the best version of myself. Nothing. I'm confident, strong and beautiful and I can do anything I set my mind to. I want the gentlemen I meet to feel this way about themselves to (Yes, you are beautiful to!)  That will certainly put a smile on my face!

 

So here I am! New website, new photos, new social accounts, new lifestyle and a new way of thinking. I'm still the same sweet Melissa, just a new and improved version! Thank you for being here and having an interest in me! I just can't wait to see what adventures will find me!
