A Bit of My Background –
"The internet can be many things to many people and
different things to the same people at different times."
That is my quote from one of my marketing presentations, but it also true about my other online presence - my voice here on Everyday Spankings.
Years ago I sought answers on the internet like so many of us. Actually that is not a 100% accurate statement. I was searching not for answers, but for some sort of solidarity; some sort of acknowledgment that I was not alone.
In such a big world how can someone be alone?
It sounds like such a silly idea to feel alone in a vast populated world.
It only sounds silly if you have never had to ask the question.
What I was searching for was some acknowledgement that I was not a total anomaly. I wanted some proof that I was not so far off base in my unique desires, turn-ons and pleasure points. The short version of the story is that I found validation.
There were others like me in the world.
People who even better seemed "normal". Although at first observation most of these people were either "professionals" or seemingly having the apparent status of online celebrities. Yet, upon further investigation these same professionals, online personas and so many others were for the most part...ordinary!
Not ordinary in a dull way, but ordinary in an everyday way. In a familiar way, in the way of people you run into on a daily basis; the familiarity of acquaintances and even friends.
So although I found like minded kin, I did not immediately "come out" and start commenting on blogs, forums or websites overnight. I dabbled, but for the most part I continued to keep to myself. I kept mostly to myself since some of my likes were not as extreme as to what seemed to be popular online and my other likes were non-represented at all. I remained a lurker for the longest time, but thanks to certain welcoming blogs I was reminded that I was not alone and that there were so many others who shared my likes and opinions, my desires and beliefs. I was not alone in my admiration of the female form, not alone in finding pleasure in the female bottom, in finding joy in the sound of spanking a lady's posterior; in the pleasure of punishing, embarrassing and exploring deserving young ladies.... oh so much female fascination and sub-genres...(Read this post if you want a better idea of the philosophy behind this blog.)
I eventually came "out online" via this blog with one of my primary goals for this blog to be a welcoming place for those who seek reassurance, who seek a welcoming place and to let you know...
I am a lot like you... believe it or not.
Isn't it nice to know you are not alone?
So YOU are Here. Now.
It is OK.
Now's your chance to say hello.
A bit of LOL Event Background –
What will undoubtedly one day become legend, about 8 years ago the talented and very smart blogger Bonnie created this online event that she called Love Our Lurkers Day. This awesome event is an opportunity for those visitors to a blog to speak up and introduce themselves and comment. She explains it so much more clearly than I here in case you want to read it in her own words.
As I have mentioned, I know it can be intimidating commenting on a blog as it took me quite a long time to get comfortable doing it. However it is a great opportunity to connect with others, share opinions, ideas and hopefully share some laughs.
Your comments are also a benefit to the blog authors. Remember the life of a young blogger can be solitary not knowing if his or her voice is connecting with a predominantly silent audience; thus the ever importance of feedback.
Thus, I hope you all take advantage of this opportunity today to say hello.
Come on. I'll make it easy on you; here is a simple set of questions:
1) What is your name (doesn't have to be your real name)
2) How often do you come here?
4) What in particular brings you back?
5) Favorite story or post here?
6) Age range
Looking Forward to Meeting You!
Pleased to meet Me!
