Hello Billet Box Fans! Let me start out by saying that the BilletBox.Info future is not in jeopardy. If you have been a fan of the site, you might have noticed that the 4-10 posts I was putting up each week came to a halt a little over a month ago. I humbly apologize for that. Let me explain why and what the future does hold for this site. I’ve put this post off long enough.
Before I explain, let me tell you again why I put this site together.
When I first got into Billet Box, there was info all around but it wasn’t easily found. The Facebook groups were great in getting help and groups like Billet Box USA were welcoming for newcomers. Not all groups were so helpful though. Either way, I was fortunate enough to get some personal help from some great Billet Box veterans like Jeremy Lane Green, Monarch Andrezej, Jenn Schiavo, H Bee Corps, and Melissa Grube. There were others as well, but these were the 1st to help. If not for these people, I might not have fallen into the Rabbit Hole so deep. Because I fell in and saw that there wasn’t a ton of easy to find information in one place, I decided to throw together this site. It was going to be a lot smaller but I kept coming up with other ideas.
I enjoyed doing all the research and putting the site together. Once I had a solid base for the site, I started getting into blogging about my collection, new products, and some first looks at 3rd party accessories.
One little thing after another has eroded my passion for the Billet Box community. Drama, scammers, frustration with the way 3rd party accessories are obtained, lack of support from some modders, liars, and burnout have all contributed to my loss of passion for this project. I won’t go into any details on all this.
The website won’t be going anywhere. Even with no updates, the site is getting a good deal of search engine traffic and it wouldn’t be fair to shut it down. Much of the info on the site won’t really change and I still believe the resource section of the site is still valuable to new Billet Box owners. The server this site is hosted on was upgraded not too long ago for this site and for other sites I host. The contract is for 3 years and it’s paid in full until 2023. That said, the site will be here at least until then.
I might post about new products on occasion, but I am going to have to rely on others letting me know about them via the contact form. I have left almost all the Facebook groups about Billet Box and won’t know what’s new without tips from others.
I am going to tailor the front page to showcase the static content on the site for now. I have removed the gallery and a couple of other features that require more of my attention than I plan to give moving forward.
There is a possibility that I might have a few friends make some posts on here some as well. I have spoken to a few of them and there is some interest so this is a possibility. I am not soliciting for help right now. Thanks.
What will I do?
I still love the Billet Box. I have sold a few and have 6-7 more to sell, but I plan to keep 4-5 Billets and I still use them for my primary vaping needs. I am selling most of my extra accessories and will most likely not purchase any more. Without buying more accessories, I won’t have anything to really talk about, so aside from keeping the site running and making an occasional post, I am pretty much done here. I am staying in the Billet Box USA group, I will continue to manage the Facebook Page, and I will keep the Instagram account active (for now). I will probably still be willing to help others but I doubt I will be able to keep up with so many Facebook messages every day as I have over the last few months. I am sorry about this.
Feel free to continue to follow the Facebook Page and the site for any developments. Who knows, I might change my mind eventually. I’ve been trying to get my groove back for over a month and haven’t been able to do so.
PS. The featured image of this post contains 4 Billet Boxes and 1 NOCT that I am for sure selling right now. Feel free to contact me on Facebook for more info if you are interested.
