Requiescat in pace
In the past few days I’ve received some e-mails and comments asking if Bad Breeders is no more. Sadly that is in fact the case.
I originally took the site over when I was working for b5 Media and it was still Parents Behaving Badly. While I have always been an advocate for abused children I took the site over for a payday and that was the reason I kept the site open after b5 Media and I parted ways. While I wasn’t getting the money I was while working for b5 I was still getting enough from Google Adsesnse to justify keeping the site open. Not enough to make a living but enough to justify keeping it open. The problem was I felt guilty collecting money on a site that was about child abuse. I felt like I was collecting money directly from the victims of child abuse like I was stealing their lunch money or something. It was obvious in the last couple of years of BB that I had totally lost the passion for that site as I barely ever posted. The final straw came when Adsesne threatened to ban BB. Without that income stream it became no loner financially viable of logistically feasible to keep BB open anymore.
That’s not to say that I wasn’t proud of the work I did there. All the posts that I made personally are here at this site. I still have everything from BB backed up as well and eventually I will have that posted somewhere as well however as of right now that’s a project that has to be put on the back burner for now as I get this site in order. I also want to thank all the other writers from BB who contributed to the site over the years. I wish we made enough money for me to have paid everyone for their contributions but the PayPal fees would have pretty much eaten up any payment.
In the meantime I’ll still be posting some BB type stories however it won’t be the main focus of the site. In the meantime if you need a BB type fix I recommend Bonnie’s Blog of Crime.
Hopefully some of you BB fans will stick around here as well because it’s not just parents that abuse children. There are those that are being preyed upon by strangers online or are being sexually trafficked on sites like Backpage and they deserve our attention too.
Thank you for all the years of your support.
I’m sorry for my most recent hiatus. I had some personal things I had to take care of all of a sudden. But never mind that. Hopefully I’m back for a while and I’ve got you all a present.
In the past I’ve said that I can’t post every story that I get here at PBB or I would never be able to do anything else. And I’ve felt bad for the people who took the time to send in stories that didn’t make it to PBB. Now I have sort of a solution to that. I’ve resurrected BadBreeders.net to be a companion site to PBB. IT will have just the links to articles that people have sent in that weren’t posted to PBB.
Again, it is not replacing PBB but acting as a companion site.
Just when you thought you were safe from bad parenting PBB makes it’s triumphant return.
Hi, I’m internet’s Trench Reynolds. Some of you may know me from my other b5 blog MyCrimeSpace. Some of you may know me from my own bad parenting blog Bad Breeders. Now you all know me as the new blogger behind Parents Behaving Badly.
I’ve been a huge fan of PBB since even before its b5 days. As a matter of fact if it wasn’t for b5 picking up PBB I would not be a b5 blogger myself. When PBB’s original blogger announced that PBB was picked up by b5 I decided to make the step myself and applied to b5 who then picked up MyCrimeSpace. So I kind of owe my blogging career to PBB.
So I’m sure you’re wondering what will be different here now that I’m at the helm. First off even though the site title contains the word ‘Parents’ I will rarely refer to them as such because usually they don’t deserve to be called that. So I will use the term I used liberally at Bad Breeders and will be referring to them as Breeders. You don’t have to be a biological parent to be a Breeder either. There are such things as Step-Breeders and Foster-Breeders in the Trench Reynolds lexicon.
Secondly there will be slim to no coverage of the Casey Anthony story. I did start to cover it at Bad Breeders but when it entered the realm of Nancy Grace and psychics it became not worth my time. I pride myself on covering cases that aren’t necessarily covered by the national media.
So sit back and be enthralled and appalled as I bring you an unfortunately never ending parade of parental failures.
