Meet our 10,000th memberand our first!
Oh, what a long strange trip it's been here at RealJock. Well, not that long really. Just over six months ago, we launched the beta version of the RealJock.com web site. And what a version it was! Can you say "buggy"? Our only members were the two of us who started the site, plus a lesbian friend who was helping us bug test (thanks Sue!). Since then we've worked out a lot of kinks, added a bunch of new features, andbest of allbeen lucky enough to have more than 10,000 sports and fitness-focused gay guys join the site.
Hello, Mr. 10,000
In celebration of this little landmark, we're happy to introduce RealJock's 10,000th member, Celticmuscleboy
. Celticmuscleboy's real name is David. He lives in San Francisco and is one of the sweetest guys we've talked to in a long time. Feel free to say "hello" and introduce yourself. You can learn all sorts of interesting things about him on page 2
He's number one in our book (and our technical records)
We also wanted to celebrate our first member who wasn't
involved in the site launch, the always smiling Talljockboy
(see our interview with him on page 3
). Talljockboy, aka Gord from Toronto, must have been pretty shocked when he first stepped into the ghost town that was then RealJock.com, but he stuck with us all along and we love him for it.
Gift packs for our two favorite guys
We couldn't keep RealJock going without our advertising partners, so we asked them to participate in our 10,000th member celebration. And participate they did, offering up some sweet gifts for Talljockboy and Celticmuscleboy. Here's a list of the loot that Gord and David get for being our first and 10,000th member:
A special offer from Frivole to all RealJock.com members
- Aussiebum, the maker of the hottest underwear, swimsuits and leisurewear Down Under, is sending them a top-secret gift pack.
- Frivole, Miami-based maker of super stylish tops, bottoms, and swimsuits, has sent each of them a $50 gift certificate to the Frivole.com online store.
- Gay.com, arguably the biggest gay site on the planet, is offering Celticmuscleboy and Talljockboy a free one-year subscription to Gay.com Premium Services.
- And last but not least, from our own soon-to-launch RealJockShop, we're giving them each a $50 gift certificate when we open the door next month (keep an eye peeled).
Not content to give gifts to our 10,000th and first member, Frivole.com
