I have several things to talk about today. First thing - today is my 6th birthday! I posted for the first time 6 years ago today. So it really is like a birthday. I became a brand new person when I began the blog.
I have been accused of gently encouraging a few people to begin blogs. Hmm… that might have happened on occasion, LOL! But I have a good reason. Blogging has been the best thing that has ever happened to me – it’s giving me closeness to my husband. It’s given me my best friends in the world. And now, instead of hiding who I am, I have a wonderful forum where I can talk to like-minded people about a subject near and dear to my heart. For forty-nine years I couldn’t talk about spanking to anyone – yes, blogging is important to me and I do encourage other to take the plunge.
Speaking of friends beginning blogs I wanted to let you know that Minelle, who has written for Fantasy Friday, has begun a blog of her own. I hope you will go by and visit her at My Breath. I always think it’s fun to get in right at the first of a blog, but then again I’m nosy and don’t want to miss anything. Minelle has also contributed next week's Fantasy Friday, it's really good so don't forget to come by.
I also wanted to participate in Pooky’s survey. Here goes.
1. Have you read 50 Shades of Grey? Have you read all of them?
I sure have! Sunnygirl mentioned them to me right after she read them and I down loaded all three. I enjoyed them a lot. I wasn't looking for great literature, just a fun story - and I got it!
2. Have you read any other spanking fiction? 3. Did you start reading them before or after the 50 Shades?
I read as many blogs as I can find time to read. I read 9 1/2 Weeks when it first came out. Then Nancy Friday's, My Secret Garden, had several good spanking stories. I read some Shadow Lane books before I found blogs and now that I can down load and read anywhere I want to.
I've really only been since I read 50 Shades that I've been looking and I usually find my choices here and then go to Amazon to order.
5. Have you ever written any spanking fiction?
I sure have, I've done maybe 15 Fantasy Friday's and of course I write Cassie's Space, which is my true joy!
6. Do you follow Pk's Fantasy Fridays? Have you ever written for her?
Oh yes, I've followed me for years!
7. Have you Read Clint's Bootcamp Book? Did you participate in it after you purchased it?
No I haven't read it.
8. Are you a reader in real life? How serious?
I'm a very serious reader. I've carried a book around with me since I was about ten, but I haven't read as much since I started writing.
9. Do you generally purchase your reading material, check it out at the library, or borrow from a friend?
I nearly always buy it and I love being able to get it on my Kindle and carry my whole library around with me.
10. Are you more likely to leave a review if you loved the book or hated it?
I'm more likely to now than I used to be. I understand now how much it means to a writer to get feedback.
One last thing, there is a new story over at Cassie's Space. I hope you'll come by.
