Over the years I’ve given a lot of thought to why I’m here. I began blogging four and a half years ago. I know why I started. I had typed ‘spanking’ in the search engine hoping, I think, just to find some spanking pictures. I’m not sure I even knew what blogs were. Very soon I felt a little like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz when she opened the door into a technicolor world. I found that I wasn’t alone in my desire to be spanked. I found others, so many others, who enjoyed spanking as fun and erotic and for discipline reasons involving submission. I had found myself. Through the blogs – reading them, writing, commenting, receiving comments, I felt acceptance in a way I had never experienced before.
I found amazing friends here. That was the biggest shock. Although you meet new people and make casual friendships all your life, finding true friends – those with whom you can share you real thought, your dreams, your desires – strange though they may seem to most of the world, is rare after fifty. I have always been very aware of those that read my blog, whether they comment or not. Except for some Fantasy Fridays (where I really think the comments are directed to the different writers) I’ve answered nearly every comment that anyone has ever made. I know that some people are where I was so many years and they are just trying to find other in the spanking world that they can relate to. I know there were times I felt very close to some people who didn’t even know I was alive back before I began blogging or even began commenting.
Anyone who reads here knows I don’t always keep on topic. That’s never bothered me because I liked showing that spanko have a wide variety of interest, our marriages of course but also our kids, our jobs, our churches, our hobbies – we’re well rounded people!
Three wonderful blog have come to an end. These bloggers were kind enough to let us know that they were not going to be posting any longer. That’s much kinder than those that just vanish and cause those of us who have read and cared about them to wonder what has happened. Janet, SugarAnne and B’Man explained there reasons well and it seems that they both blogged and have decided not to blog for very legitimate reasons. But I’m still sad. I miss people when they leave the blogging world. I’m happy that they say they will still be reading some and hopefully commenting too. But I if I had my way they would all have just said “Right now we won’t be blogging regularly. If we have something we what to say or share we’ll pop in and let you know.” Okay that’s selfish on my part but that’s the way I feel.
I like my blogging friends, I hate to lose touch with any of them and I hope that my readers will let me know that they are out there because that the reason I blog. I love the contact with other.
