The day I transfer my blog over to it’s own hosting, Google reverse their decision to block nudity on Blogger! Ah well, was probably the best move for me as I keep control rather than wondering when my site may be hit by the next stupid idea from Google. I bet this was based on a more logical reasoning than the original plan to block nudity, like losing millions of blogs and users to the likes of Tumblr and self hosting like me.
Onwards and upwards as they say!
I’ve done it! The site has now moved off Blogger and is now being hosted on it’s own server using WordPress. You will notice some differences in layout and presentation, but if you use Just June they will look familiar. Some links still need updating, but I’ve done a majority of the main page links and there may be the odd glitch here and there, but rather than waiting I wanted to get the site running again. This way I can at least start publishing posts again without the worry of them disappearing! I’ll carry on fixing the links etc, but if you do see anything not working please do comment on the page and I’ll pick it up and fix it.
Finally I’d like to thank everyone for the kind comments and support during this frustrating period as it has helped and made me want to continue. I must also say a big thank you to those of you that generously donated funds to make this move possible so quickly. I’ve contacted you individually to express my thanks and I will eternally grateful for your support in helping me do this.
Normal service will now resume.
Where did that year go! A quick note to say that it’s been a year since I started this dedicated site to June Palmer and I can’t believe it! In that time I’ve published over 360 images of June through-out her career and beyond, most of them original never before seen shots ranging from candid holiday shots to early nude shots. I’ve made many new contacts that have both known and photographed June, all of whom have provided stories and their own images of her. The site continues to grow and go from strength to strength and to think I worried if I should do this a year ago as there wouldn’t be enough interest. The images I see of June continue to surprise and excite me, and she is as popular now as she ever was to her fans.
I have a few people to thank for their continued support of this site, as without them I’m sure it wouldn’t be as popular. Firstly John W, whose dedication to June through his own work of her, both images and video’s and his huge June archive have helped make this site what it is, without his continued support I wouldn’t have seen or shared half the original June images this last 12 months. Secondly a big thanks to all the other fans and photographers that have shared their own images of June, including Itsgardin, Oldiznewagain, Minimunster and others that wish to remain anonymous. Here’s to another fruitful 12 months of the fabulous June Palmer.
Finally all that is left to say is thank you and I hope you all have a very Happy Christmas and New Year and I look forward to sharing more Just June with you in 2015.
For those that didn’t realize, didn’t know or don’t care I host and store all my photo’s over on Flickr and I’ve been using the site personally since 2007. I only started using Flickr to host my Kamera Club images in May 2013, but have already amassed over 4000 images that have been published. I tried many hosting options before settling on Flickr, but the main reasons were that you got more control over your images on Flickr than other places. I tried Google+ and Google Photo’s, but they have a very strict policy on nudity and their automated system for checking images regularly removed the most obscure shots containing the odd boob, but would leave a full frontal shot alone!
With Flickr you have a lot more control and as long as you have your content and privacy settings correct, you can pretty much publish anything! I also find you have a lot more control over your images, who can see them, what size and what people can do with the images.
What I didn’t realize was how many sets I’d amassed in such a short space of time, 219! Thankfully your given a Terabyte of storage and I’ve not even touched 1% of it yet. I’m also a control freak, so all my sets are organised and in order, as you can see below 🙂
So, if you have a Flickr account feel free to head over to my account and take a look and follow it if you want. you’ll get to see most of my images, well those I’ve published and allow publicly anyway!
The only down side to Flickr is video hosting as they don’t allow very long clips, but I have a solution for that thankfully, so it’s not a deal breaker.
Anyone have any other suggestions?
Just to let you know things have changed slightly and hopefully for the better! 🙂 I’ve moved my site from Blogger to my own hosted site using WordPress.
Hopefully this will give me a lot more control over the site and more functionality, but you may see the odd broken link for a while as I work through them. I’ll continue to publish new June content as I work through the glitches, but please bear with me!

That’s it post wise today, as if that isn’t enough, but I thought I’d give a quick update on some things that I’ve been doing.
- General update of the site fixing some broken links etc.
- Vintage Magazines – Updated and linked to some of the new magazine scans
- Kamera Specials – Images updated to better resolution and size and update the links, so they link to all the published pages so far.
- Models Page – Updated and checked all links work
- Unknown Models – Added those that have been identified and a few new ones that are still unknown
Only a small update 🙂
P.S. Keep the great comments, feedback and scans you send coming, it’s really appreciated.
