!! Welcome to omg.blog !!

You might have noticed that we recently changed our domain name to omg.blog! We also moved the site to HTTPS at the same time and simplified our URL structure. These are changes that will take our site into a future that will hopefully still have room for independent publishers like us. 🚀

Our new .blog domain represents our belief that blogs occupy a unique and important place on the Internet. Content overload is real, and we provide a fun, queer edit for our hundreds of thousands of monthly visitors. 🌈🎧🍆

We’re grateful for all of you who support us and other independent blogs in this time when Facebook and Google control so much of what we see online. We’ve had astounding growth since the site was founded in 2003. Here’s to the next fifteen years! 😸🍾

(Many thanks to Josh at Sites By Coop for the fantastically smooth transition to our new domain 💖)

!! OMG, Snapchat airs insensitive ‘Slap Rihanna or Punch Chris Brown’ ad !!

Snapchat isn’t having a great week! First, their GIPHY feature was disabled (so was Instagram’s) after users discovered racist GIFs in the inventory!

Now, people are seeing ads pop up asking users who they would rather hurl violence at? The famous victim of spousal abuse, Rihanna? Or her abuser, Chris Brown. Innnteresting approach to advertising. Thoughts!?
