I am not a person who watches her stats. I have never been a numbers person...math is a necessary evil. When Master asks about blog stats (engineer...numbers Man), i always say...i have no idea. I did happen to notice last week that i was close to 500 posts. The thought of that surprised me...500??..how did that happen. How did i ever have enough to say....i sure hope i have not been boring!
I started blogging because i was told i had to. I had all the same worries most of you probably had...what if no one reads, what if they think i am nuts, what if no one ever comments. After about 2 months i said to Master, i am done. He told me to continue for 6 months, after that the choice would be mine. That was about 5 years ago.
What i did not know..or expect..are the many benefits this blog has provided. Yes, i now have a place to look back on ( have been a diary keeper since high school), but even more importantly i have discovered many things about this blogging community.
.......it is a place of acceptance....spanking is a general term...the how's and why's and what else is our 'kink'...all of it is accepted.
.....i have made friends, that go beyond this blog. We play games, we email, we care about each other.
....i have a place to go for a daily giggle, or for some Friday Fails that make you wonder what were they thinking, or recipes, or to read some wonderful free stories, or to reinforce that i am not overly weird, or to learn about customs and life in others countries, to connect with like minded people, or to learn about new ways and ideas.
....i have received such support and encouragement during times of grief or illness.
..Thank you all....
