I built the School in Jan, 2007, about six months after I started Hard Alley. At that time Hard Alley had become a fairly big success and was at the top of the Popular Places list. I was hoping to prove to myself that Hard Alley had not just been a fortunate accident, and that I could create another site that was as successful as the Alley.
After a lot of thinking and searching to find an idea that no one else had tried, I settled on the idea of a "Reform School for Girls". The idea came from my RL Boss' daughter, who was in reform school at the time. She was a hottie and I could imagine her in there, being traded for cigarettes. Of course, school girl outfits are a big plus, too. Cheerleaders, sex with teachers, spankings, abusive guards... it all started to add up to a really great idea.

It started slow, but I knew it was an idea that would catch on, so I kept working on it and improving it, and more and more people started to come. It wasn't long before it had as much traffic, if not more, than Hard Alley. The proof of its success was, as with Hard Alley, the number of copy-cat sites that began to spring up around SL.
I lost the School to Ana in our divorce and I have had very little to do with it since then, but it is still there and people are still enjoying it. I re-created it in my own sim as the Hard Alley Reform School, which is closer to my original vision than SGGBDF is today.
