Facebook To Worley Gig Dot Com: Fuck You

I Dont Care
Photo By Gail

Monday morning, with zero warning or valid cause, Facebook deleted 99% of the posted content on the two fan pages I’d been maintaining on that platform (one for more than a decade) in order to promote this blog’s content to my fans and friends. To add insult to injury, they also deleted every post on my personal page that linked to content on Worleygig.com, thus completely obliterating my creative presence on Facebook. The reason given: these posts suddenly violate FB’s Terms of Service for Spam. Spam? Really? I call bullshit, but I have no method of recourse, because Facebook is not run by reasonable humans. So, I will be investigating more interesting (and likely way more effective) ways to promote Worleygig.com to those who wish to read it. Please feel free to follow me on Instagram @gailpink61 for more information going forward. Thanks, and Fuck Facebook.

Holy Mother of God, can you even believe I’ve been writing Worleygig Dot Com, the world’s Raddest Blog, for fifteen solid years without stopping? It really is unbelievable: and yet, it is true. It was fifteen years ago today that The Worley Gig found its permanent home at this here domain, after first originating in print as a regular column in the East Village-based monthly arts and entertainment publication, The New York Hangover, and later moving on to great success at Pandemonium Online, followed by a few years of breaking new ground at Starpolish. What a long, strange trip it’s been.

All of these outlets are gone now, but The Gig Lives On! Why do I do it? Why do I continue to bring you the best of the New York City Art Scene, Rad Design, Music Video Clips that do not suck, awesome Food Adventures, Pop Culture from around the globe, the occasional Bacon thing, plus a brand new Pink Thing of the Day every single Friday like clockwork? I do it because I love writing this blog, and I love all of you for taking this journey with me!

Please follow us on Instagram at @gailpink61 for daily reminders to get your ass over here and discover what we’re up to and, and to say hello. Thanks as always for your continued readership!

Happy 14th Birthday, Worleygig.com!

Worleygig.Com Goes to Eleven!

Happy 11th Birthday

Well, it’s June 10th again and that means it’s time to chalk up another banner year here at the Worley Gig, where today we are celebrating Eleven (11!) solid years of Web Dominance! Hurray for us! This past year has seen The Gig give pause to its competition with our unequalled coverage of Art, Bacon and Things that are Pink, as well as Food and Restaurant Reviews, consciousness-expanding coverage of Design and Lifestyle topics and our wildly popular new music series, Video Clip of the Week (which just turned one year old)! I can’t believe how much we rule!

Of course, we could not have achieved this level of success without all of our dedicated and enthusiastic readers. Thanks as always for all of your support, your faithful readership, for Tweeting and Posting our links via your social media outlets, and of course for your fun and insightful comments. Cheers to another great year!

Happy 10th Birthday, Worleygig.com!

Worleygig Dot Com Celebrates Soft Re-launch With a Hot New Look

Greetings friends and fiends. You may have noticed that we underwent a facelift over the weekend. What you see now is leaner, meaner Gig where we will bring you even more rad Pop Culture Happenings, News and Event Reports in a virtual environment with much less clunk in the trunk.

Many of the old dead service pages that nobody ever looked at have been eliminated and I am in the process of updating the Interview archives for your perusal. Oh, the Radness.

Worley Gig is now hosted by WordPress, having escaped the tyranny of our former Hostage Company, so you should no longer experience any messages that the site is down, as had been the case with our former host. Special thanks to Ian Koss for the new site design and supervision of the move.

Worley Gig Dot Com Turns Ten in June, so stay tuned for more good times ahead and thanks for your readership!

Please become a fan on FaceBook if you aren’t already and don’t forget to follow me on Networked Blogs!
