100. Post #100 – Thank you readers and followers

ty
I’ve been slacking with my blog – ten days since I last posted.   Part due to not having much going on that I find interesting.  My life as a submissive and of domestic discipline is so integrated in who I am and what I want and expect from life that the events of submission and DD are becoming uneventful to me.

Things have also been a little tame lately – lots of people coming and going, visiting for the holidays, kids out of school, etc.   But with Kayla moving in next week, it won’t be long until I have something interesting and sizzling for you. There are a few stories I could share about the last ten days — Kayla has been spending a lot of time (and some nights) with us.   That will be for another post.

POST 100 – NEW MOTIVATION
At my one-hundredth post I am no longer surprised by my thoughts, desires, and actions. It was that surprise, that wonder, and that amazement which propelled me to blog. When I first started I couldn’t wait to share the details of my journey to DD. I couldn’t stop writing and when I was done I had my first 12 posts written at one time, taking you through my epiphany to give DD a try, introducing the idea to my husband, and writing the contract and my first year in DD.

As self-aggrandizing as it sounds, I was in awe of myself – of the choices I had made, and of the journey I was on. I don’t think I can fully convey just how “normal” and vanilla my life was prior to DD. With those feelings of awe and inspiration behind me, I now seek a new motivation to share.

I recognize my lifestyle is looked at by many as a combination of being salacious and appalling. Others may find it curious yet abhorrent, and some find it reaffirming and inspirational.   Whatever your reason for reading, my new motivation for writing is simply to share.

While not as intense as the thrill I get when people watch me have sex or masturbate, I do get a similar thrill in sharing my thoughts and experiences with you.  That “thrill” is my current motivation.

I know my lifestyle is not for everyone. I would neither encourage nor discourage anyone from exploring in the things that I have explored in. However, I do encourage people to experiment in life – try new things and new experiences – whether it be in the type of people you interact with, the people you talk to, the foods you eat, the places you go, or yes, the sex you have. Life is too short and whatever reality is for you, just know there is a wider reality out there. Don’t just be an observer in life or confine yourself to the tunnel vision of tradition. Dive in and live life.

THANK YOU
For the rest of this post I thought it would be interesting to share some WordPress stats. Yawn! I know, not sexy at all, and perhaps completely uninteresting, but Post #100 seemed like a good time to share some insights into what you all think of me, vis-à-vis these stats, and to say thank you and acknowledge a few of you for engaging/supporting me with your comments and links.

My first post was 4/23/16.   December will likely be my top month for views, surpassing November’s 7,766 as I am at 7,400 for December as of this writing. Vistor-wise November was tops with 1,446.
I don’t know if it is typical to average over 5 views per visitor (this month it is 6.6). I would think that indicates when people read one post that they are likely to read many more. If that is correct, it would indicate to me that people enjoy what they read and are curious to read more. I’ll take that as the reason and say “Yea and thank you!”

This is so interesting to me. I can only imagine how odd my life and musing must be to some cultures. All cultures have their own kinks, and perhaps for some of you my lifestyle isn’t even that kinky based on your cultural norms (if so, tell me where you are so I can visit, hee-hee).

  1. I also love reading your blog and enjoy the reflective way that you write. Even if the events of your D/D or D/s have become integrated in who you are and what you do and so seem less eventful to you, you still seem able to stand back and view them from outside, drawing a conclusion on what is happening on the inside. That is not only interesting for others to read but it can also be helpful in recognising things in themselves. Thank you and I look forward to reading your future posts. missy 😊

  2. All of us owe you a big thank you. Me in particular for inspiring me to finish my novel and trust in my writing ability. I love reading your posts. They are so real and raw and filled with honesty. There is no sugar coating here, no fairy tale where all is perfect and feelings are never hurt. You write with fervent passion and that resonates with me. Thank you again for sharing your life. Y’all have a Merry Christmas ya hear.

  3. 100 posts! And I read them all at least once. Some more than once. As you may have guessed I am living my life vicariously through your Kayla stories. Can’t wait for the next update although I like all your posts. Even making small steps to try a few things I learned from your blog. I understand now that in order to get the full beneficial effects of spanking it needs to go beyond the erotic and beyond the pain. Still is intimidating for me but I am getting closer. Soon perhaps. And soon I may blog myself. Don’t know when though.

  6. I discovered your blog just before Christmas in mid December (I think). Slowly I’ve read your first 100 posts. It is a great blog. I’ll have fully caught up in the next few days. Thanks for sharing and I know that vicarious thrill involved with sharing intimate thoughts and experiences. All the best in 2017!
