It’s always a good time to kiss a little butt, seriously people, or even a big butt!
I have been wondering what to do about this for some time now. When I started blogging it was almost a last act of desperation. I know that you are familiar with the image of the mouse flipping off the big bird of prey. It was a lot like that.
I started the blog in Google’s Free Blog service and right from the start I had 4 followers.
I did not know what I had to really offer yet.
I had no idea what I was doing.
I was sure that most of my stories would be at the very least embarrassing or humiliating.
I have not been a successful spanker but thought my history would provide at least a cautionary tale.
After reading my past postings I still have to wonder “What was I thinking?”
Yeah I know. It’s a really big world out there and 4 people following my blog were not a whole lot. I was encouraged anyway.
But the people who chose to support me from the very start took my breath away.
I have to be more specific.
1) Barely Pink. I still am clueless why she would find me even interesting but she has. I think I know what to do but it has been a very long time. Barely Pink has encouraged me when I was thinking I really had nothing to offer and I would wait in line to get an autographed picture. I would have to hide it from the missus though. Seriously can I get that picture?
2) Raven Red. She has been a stranger from a strange land to me. From South Africa she has also helped to swell my own importance, who said that self esteem was a good thing. You have to have true value for that self esteem to be meaningful.
3) Bonnie. I just don’t know where to go with this. Bonnie is a rock. Her site has been around a long time because it is really fabulous. I like to think that she picked me out and singled me out for this recognition but I think her generosity overshadows all else. I go to her site for Sunday brunch and being such a frightening flop I often have nothing to add.
4) Lastly but not the least Hermione. She is very generous also. I want to steal her ideas but I am such an egotist that I want my stuff to at least a little original, maybe. But if you are going to borrow ideas they should be good ones.
Since then I have been kicked off Blogger and forced to move to WordPress. I will not be silenced. If you find what I like objectionable fell free to leave!
I have to add Chross. I know that I have been listed in his venerable spankings of the week; all I have to do is look at my site stats. I still find it hard to believe that I would have anything interesting to put up to be listed but I have been and find it very satisfying. I even had to email Barely Pink and say look, look I am listed!
I did not even have to ask for a link on the original Spanking Blog which is one of the best sites around. I like to think that he and I are at least on the same page but this blog has heart. I have followed it myself and always find something different here.
This community has been very friendly and I am still surprised when I find my site linked without my asking. When I saw that Dana Kane had a link I was shocked and a little scared! She does know how to beat a butt no doubt about it.
I have been trying to put this down for quite a while. I have finally got it all out for now.
