All of you wonderful lurkers in blog land...take note. There is help coming to help you de-lurk. Save the dates of November 18 and 19, yes we even give you a choice of 2 days. Two days in which Hermione hosts LOL...Love Our Lurkers Day. It is a day just for all of you, to put aside and enjoy coming out of the shadows and letting us meet you...or stay anonymous and let us know you are reading with a comment.
The bloggers who are participating (and there are a lot of us) will all be listed at Hermione's. We will have a post welcoming you...some will also let you vote to see what their next spanking will feel like, or how many strokes or...some will let you know how they became part of our wonderful community. There are no rules for the bloggers and the lurkers...just lots of fun and the potential for new friends.
Every year, I get at least one comment from someone who tells me it is their first comment on a blog...and that makes my day...makes my week. That first comment is the hardest..I know I have been there. Seems like ages ago now, but that first comment led to my own blog (not a necessary step...no rules remember), to learn a lot about myself, and to realize that there was a community (or family) of friends out there who, although we are all different, in many ways we are all alike. What I found was acceptance, encouragement and support...always.
Last year, I invited everyone to comment on what 'toy' Master would be choosing for my next spanking, and gave 5 choices. Each vote meant 5 swats with the winning 'instrument'. Not sure what I will come up with this year yet....but hope to hear from many of you...even if it is just a hello. I (almost always) respond to comments, so all it takes is a hello to get a conversation started...and who knows where that will lead.
