Blog notes

As December is just around the corner, and the year's end will be soon upon us, I feel the need to go over stuff about this blog and other sites, including, and social media accounts.

This blog,, is healthier than ever before. Just look at the traffic shown in the screenshot below. On average, the blog gets between 1000 to 2000 visits a day. It's been picking up nicely these past few weeks, which makes me sad because I'm taking a break now. 

The blog's lifetime views: roughly 3.5 million views.

Stats for individual pages:

PEPLUM - Heroes & Beefcake - 44590 views

PEPLUM - Babes & Beauties - 35468 views

PEPLUM Introduction - 22581 views

Tragic Stars  - 18515 views

Featured Film - 17241 views

The Real PEPLUM X - 15999 views

Special Features - 15283 views

Titles - 15194 views

30 Greatest Moments of PEPLUM Cinema - 13872 views

Actors/Crew - 7954 views

PEPLUM Cliches -  6936 views

I'm amazed by how popular the Tragic Stars page is. You can navigate through the permanent pages on the left hand side menu.


I'll keep posting at this photos only blog.


The new blog is going smoothly even though the main reason why I created is still in the works. I'll disclose it soon enough, probably before the end of the year.

Youtube channels

I have two Youtube channels. PEPLUM TV and the new one BY THE GODS. PEPLUM TV is more popular than ever. The channel has over 220K subscribers. And it never stops even if I have to keep deleting uploads because of false copyright claims. As for BY THE GODS, well, it's just a back-up channel until my other projects kick in.

Youtube recently stated that they will choose to close channels which aren't 'commercially viable' to them. Since my channel has been demonetized for over a year, Youtube doesn't make any money from it. I'm not saying they will close the channel but it wouldn't surprise me if they did. I don't know if they'll go after BY THE GODS since it's a new channel and still growing. If Youtube decides to close my main channel, here are some of stats for it.

PEPLUM TV lifetime views: 89 million!!! (it's actually higher than that since many videos were removed)

Most popular videos:

THE TRIUMPH OF MACISTE starring Kirk Morris - over 21 million views!

HERCULES AGAINST THE BARBARIANS starring Mark Forest - over 15 million views!

HERCULES, SAMSON & ULYSSES starring Kirk Morris - over 9 million views!

These are the top 3 only. There are other videos in the millions of views as well. It would be sad if Youtube closed the channel but there's nothing much I can do about it. One thing's for sure: PEPLUM movies are POPULAR!

I haven't done a Fan Dub since the channel was demonetized. I have very little time on my hands these days but I'll try to go back to it eventually. But I admit that I've been burned one too many times: other people or channels stealing my work and profiting from it. It's all so disheartening.

The BY THE GODS channel is a back up channel, in case anything happens to the main one. It's also be part of the upcoming, unannounced project associated with the blog.

Social media accounts

The Twitter and Facebook accounts of PEPLUM TV are still going strong. You can view the stats on their pages. I enjoy keeping them up to date but my main focus is really the blogs and Youtube channels. But there are some really amazing friends at the Facebook account. There's more engagement there than the blog itself.

Anyway, I'll keep you updated on new projects and things in the works. I'm so busy right now that I have to find time to do just the smallest of things.
