Yes indeed yes indeed yes indeed it has finally happened for the first time since I started blogging around 2006 and after deleting those first four or five blogs and then this version of the Pittsburgh Adult went online February 2014 and now after nearly four years I have a blog that is averaging at least 1,000 views every day for one month and January 2018 is that month!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
You know you can’t beat that with a stick and I thank every one of you for making this happen for a blog without readers ain’t worth shit so let us continue together this journey of discovery as to what an online publication for adults only can be.

Hello hello hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers all over the world and welcome to my blog of culture for adults only which is an experiment in online publishing for I know of no other online publication like this publication and yes as you can tell I’m in high spirits today and why not for I’m retired and I’m blessed to have no aches or pains and after all these years I’ve finally found that blogging is my true calling and I get to do it every day and I don’t have to make a living at it because I am retired but even so the Pittsburgh Adult is not only my avocation but it’s also a business and I’m happy to report that so far for 2018 this business is operating in the black…
It cost $265.00 to keep the Pittsburgh Adult online for 2018 because I have to pay for hosting and daily backup and for my domain name and I’m going to publish at least two erotic flash fiction stories from Jean Michelle and two erotic flash fiction stories from Heather Kinnane this year and already this blog has brought in $150.00 so far this year so I’m in good shape for I only need another $115.00 more to break even and I have the rest of the year to break even and then if I do break even anymore money that comes in will be a net profit but let’s not get ahead of ourselves and let’s not count our chickens before they hatch when what we really should be doing is just trying to put one foot in front of the other and let the chips fall where they may…
Hail to Pitt!
I didn’t even go out yesterday and I’m as sober as a judge which I know is a cliche and there are a lot of cliches in this blog post for some reason but it’s how I feel and anyway don’t cry for your Baby Boomer Papa for in about 52 hours I’ll be on my regular beat in Little Italy sipping beer at Armand’s and shooting the breeze with some other baby boomers and then it will be a quick stop at Sonny’s on the way back home and once in my small but comfy apartment I’ll put on some classical music low on the radio and take up my favorite position flat on my back on the sofa with two pillows under my weary head and sip beer and read the books I’ve checked out from the library but in the meantime today in Pittsburgh there will be snow showers this morning and it will be mostly cloudy the rest of the day with a high around 24.
