IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Blogger is closing The Treasure Trail

Sadly, I received the following message a few days ago from Blogger.  The Treasure Trail will end because of this policy change.  I hope everyone has enjoyed the forum and the focus on one exceptional aspect of male beauty.  I will miss the sharing.

I'll try to post a few more photos before Blogger shuts this site down on March 23.  I hope you will all express your opinion about this decision.

Dear Blogger User,

We're writing to tell you about an upcoming change to the Blogger Content Policy that may affect your account.

In the coming weeks, we'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.

The new policy will go into effect on the 23rd of March 2015. After this policy goes into effect, Google will restrict access to any blog identified as being in violation of our revised policy. No content will be deleted, but only blog authors and those with whom they have expressly shared the blog will be able to see the content we've made private.

Our records indicate that your account may be affected by this policy change. Please refrain from creating new content that would violate this policy. Also, we ask that you make any necessary changes to your existing blog to comply as soon as possible, so that you won't experience any interruptions in service. You may also choose to create an archive of your content via Google Takeout (

  2. Good news ! Blogger has ended the ban on sexually explicit material. They received so many responses from blogger that they decided to keep the policy the way it is. However you must have your profile under adult and must have the disclaimer on your blog.

  3. Hi Mark, I been off air for a while and nearly died at the thought of your site being shut down. Does the above mean that you are staying in business,?? I hope so - your site is the best for treasure trails, sexy men and trails and comments. ANON from Australia.

  4. Hey Mark,
    I had the same problem with blogger, you should move to a more gay friendly Blog Host. I use They are great and they have a history of being gay/adult friendly.
