It's been quite some time since i posted anything new on this site. Over the last several months between workin gon the yard, the house, and a regular crappy full time job, I havent had much free time. I was designing and building a new belly site over at belly.zone. I now however am taking the ideas and design from over there and am bringing it all over to this site, keeping it all regular TBZ (thebellyzone.com).
What this means is much quicker and more often updates for me as well as other site contributers. The basic layout should look the same, or at least close to it does now, the belly guide will be tied directly into this site, and a full site login for members.
This does mean that at some point the forums will be replaced by a whole new forum system. Which does mean that people will have to re-register and all thier old posts will be gone (in theory, I may be ablw to save everything).
Another new idea I had for it was since the site main page will be wordpress (blog) based is now having regular belly elated news on the front page. With more than just me being able to post. I will ask for people to do certain types of news and post it up whene ever they come across it (ex. One person that will keep up to date on pregnant celebs, one person keeping up to date on belly expansion, one person keeping us up to date on pregnancy in movies, etc...)
Keep an eye out for some changes taking place this weekend!
For anyone who has been wondering what has been going on around here, and why the site has not been touched in over two months, here's the answer:
First off, it's spring time now, that means yardwork alot, and typical fixing issues with the cars. Also my job doesn't leave me much time anymore. But here's some good news for you guys. I have procured a new domain to add to the bellyzone, it's simply belly.zone. I will be completely making a new version of this site, fully in wordpress and very intereactive. So until that is all ready just keep checking back in here for any news on it. I am planning on incorporating the media guide into that new site as well. Which has also lots to do with why that hasn't been updated also. There is also plenty of new content which is being regularly uploaded to this site by the resident mormphers so don't forget to check out what they do.
It's been awhile since I posted any news on here about anything. I want to keep everyone in the loop on what's been going on lately.
The new media guide was taking off well. I was getting alot done for awhile, given my limited amount of free time..
Then youtube videos started the flagging thing, and one got removed and I got a strike. I spent a couple days thinking about a better direction to go whil still giving everyone free belly scenes and picture galleries from the movies. I did decide to just go with downloadable content instead of streaming from youtube.
Why not just stream them yourself you might ask. Well here's why. My server package can't handle it. It would take either a dedicated server or a virtual server to do that wich would run about $200 a month. that's simply out of the question because this site and the guide simply does not generate any revenue what so ever.
Creating the extra links, and uploading to the server all takes extra time compared to simply copying a youtube addy. Also I need to grab a still from the clip to use as a visible download link, less boring than a 'Click Here' text link. Also for making a gallery I need to also grab stills from the clip.
So all in all it takes longer now to create one movie page. I spent about a week trying to find a decent plugin that could handle the job for my, but my server, wich is shared hosting, has boundries on what upload sizes wordpres is allowed to use, and I can go in and change that. So I guess it's the 'More Work' route for me. That is about all I cna figure out for the time being.
Over the next couple months you will eventually see a new link on the main site here for the media guide as it will be it's own 'New' site. It will be as it is now, eventually I will be adding more ways for the users to interact with it, and eachother. Perhaps even it's own forum dedicated to movies, tv shows, etc... with pregnancy, belly expansion, and other belly related scenes.
I hope to get more conent up at the guide by the end of the week, and then I will start resume regular updating on it. Be sure to check the link at the top for 'Recent Additions' to view anything new.
And Happy St. Patricks Day to all!
I think i'm going to push forward with the guide and have it be it's own site. So far I got a couple ideas for the .com name. And looking for suggestions.
I found that these are currently available:
bellydb.com (db for database)
What do you think about those names?
Please chime in with any .com titles you think would be fitting for the belly guide. I wantto keep the title fitting for the site, and also be easy to spell.
Another idea I had was actually turning the bellyzone home site into the guide and branching of the other content as a seperate site. Any ideas on that idea?
Please people post any suggestions you have in here to help me decide which route to take. My idea for the belly is to eventually have it be much like imdb.com, only all belly related.
Please post them here
Well after a week of tweaking a theme (a week of free time that is, which equals about 5 hours). I have it basically the way it will be when I debut it. I have only 3 movies listed, But the main one so far is Return To Nuke Em High Vol. 1.
The new guide is also fully searchable. you can search by actors, titles, belly stuff, etc... There is also quick links to content such as pregnant, belly expansion, belly movement, extremely hug, and belly sounds, as tags for movies. By clicking any of those links either in the sidebar menu, or in any movie lising it will bring up a list of all movies with that paticular tag.
If you visit the guide and follow that link you will find the following:
Brief movie review.
Belly scenes review.
Youtube embed of scene.
Link to download video. (the belly expansion scene)
And a gallery of different stills from the movie.
Visit the return to nukem high page now. Here
The full guide is at UBMG. Please visit it and comment, and/or post a reply in the forums in the site updates section and let me know how you like it, and if you have any suggestions on what else you would like to see added to the new guides features.
Not much as far as content but you can see the guide the way it will be. You can login with your forum username and password to comment and create a profile.
*However you may have to login to the forums first then visit the guide and login there. For some reason the guide may say username not recognized (or something like that). There is some kind of process to it. but once the guide will let you login, it will always let you login.*
I would like to announce that the The Belly Zone has it's first female channel featured on BellyTube. The very talented Laura Lovess has allowed me to link to her channel on Youtube. She's a stuffer/bloater with a very nice round full belly, and a super great body to go with it. I have been following her a very long time, and she updates quite often and always an absolute joy to watch. She currently has nearly 80 belly videos to check out.
Also I have to admit that this girl is actually the one responsible for me to finally go ahead and make another belly site, I started planning it out while watching her youtube page one night, next thing I knew, I went ahead and built a site. I hope that she will come around this site often and get involved in the forums and chat rooms. I have been wanting to add something to the site so I could add her into it for some time now, and this youtube embedding scripts finally gave me a chance to get her involved. So someday in the future when this site is huge and always booming with visitors and content, always remember this first girl on the site, that actually was the final insiration for the whole thing. So check out her page here, then go and visit her youtube page, and be sure to subscribe to her please, and leave her some great feedback.
The Chipmunks Youtube channel. He also has many other pregnancy videos on his page. But the main focus here is his video reviews. Originally I was going to add them in the pages of movies in the media guide, but since thats still a ways off for now, I added a nice featured page here on the site for him to do his thing.
Punishing Fate has a very nice Youtube channel, a very extensive collection of pregnancy & belly expansion scenes from movies and tv shows. I Highly suggest checking out his channel for new scenes often.
The biggest addition to the site lately is the new area called BellyTube. This is what happens when a belly site mates with Youtube. Soon i will add more options for the bellytube search bar, so you can retrieve clips sorted by how you want, for now they are sorted as 'newest first'. For featured channels and/or playlists it is set up as 'newest first'. That way whenever you go to that page on this site, if it has been updated anything new will show up first automatically.
You may notice some changes happening to the site off and on over the next several days or weeks. I am in the process of a whole new look, but adding new content as I go along. So occasionally you will notice things may move around and words/fonts/colors may shift or change completely. Right now it is alittle cluttered looking and not all pages may offer the same menu links. That will change once I upload the new template I'm making for the site. So bear with me please on this 'Re-Boot' of TBZ.
2 Updates today:
Newest update is Belly Tube! I configured a page that fully interacts with Youtube. It is a fully searchable page that will list youtubes videos based off your search. It still needs a little work. I need to find a way for the videos to open in a popup style player intead of playing above the rest on the page. I have it preloaded with videos based on belly expansion, but you can search for anything you want all day long. Once I get the player figured out the way I want, I will also add more functionality and add search options, like displaying by newest, or most relevant.
I figured its a good way to spend time while staying on the site.
Earlier update today: Added a youtube widget to the site, It'll probably get its own page and get updated more often, probably even switched around to several different styles for types of belly stuff. But for now I got it right here on the main page. I created a small playlist for girls stuffed/bloated bellies, also you can choose the link to view my uploads as well.
New chat room installed. It utilizes the forums database, so no need to create any new usernames. You can simply login with your username and password for the forums.
So login and chat everyone!
I have to make a little announcement. First off the 'Show Me The Belly' pregnancy movie guide is on a slight hold for a bit. I got a book about using php, and sql to create and manage databases. So until I can get the guide created using a database, which will make it much quicker and easier to update, also make it searcheable and just about anything else I can think of, the guide will sit as it is for now. Also Me and a buddy of mine over at Taylor Made Clips (taylormadeclips.com) have been working together on scripts and such, so If you are a regular visitor over there expect to see some '_R_ & Stormr' stories as clips in awhile.
Hello and I want to share something very special with you all. First off I wrote a script for a remake of the old our gang short called bubbling troubles. Thanx to the great people over at Taylor Made Clips A nice little video was shot from it. They have just posted it up for sale on thier site, And I am hoping you all go and check it out. If the video is well recieved by the community and they do well enough from it, I am hoping to write a sequel or two for it, as well as write many more short stories to be turned into videos.
So please check it out: Bubbling Troubles
And heres a preview pic of the clip:
Welcome to The Belly Zone. This site will hopefully serve in all areas of female belly expansion, and will serve as a place for the belly community to visit on a regular basis. This site will offer all ranges of expansion including breast, butt & body expansion as well. There will be links to the various girls of youtube with thier belly pages, as well as links to other belly expansion related websites. People with thier own pages or sites can also have them featured here on this site. Along with my own morphs, and video expansions, there will be guest galleries for the community to share thier work with eachother. Also I hope the forum will start thriving and be a regular stop for all of you to share experiences, anything you seen in tv belly related, and just hang out and have a good time.
So far this is just the main page, and the site itself hasnt been built yet, but keep checking back as that I hope to have the full site done and online by June 2013. And let everyone else you know that Stormr is back, and theres a new belly site in town!
Some of you may remember my old site, and its few previous version that regretably I sold back in 2005. It has been awhile, and most belly expansion sites have dissapeared over the years. It is time to get our community back together again, and hopefully bring in many more new people as well. The original site started back in 1999 with one simple page and 3 belly expansion morphs (or technically warps). Now theres all kinds of great programs that do great jobs with making bellies bigger, ones for videos as well. So between this new sit and the people in the community lets band together and share our work with eachother on this site and in the forums. Once its been added anyways :)
Ive got many expansion vids on my youtube page, as well and ones I morphed to make the girls grow larger. Most of you probably already know about that page though, since you probably came here after hearing about it on youtube. But if you havent then check it out, at least until this site is finished.
