Global Day Of Delurk 2011


For the sixth time Bonnie of My Bottom Smarts has organised Love Our Lurkers Day or, as we call it here at the Rohrstock-Palast, the Global Day Of Delurk. Thank you very much, Bonnie, for all your efforts that go into this wonderful little event. This is the first time for me to write our Global Day of Delurk post, which is a big honour, since I've got a very special relation with this campaign.

In 2008 I wrote my first-ever comment here on Ludwig's Rohrstock-Palast, in reply to Ludwig's first Global Day Of Delurk post. At that time I still called myself K'Ehleyr. Our long-time readers know how things evolved from that moment on, and the rest of you can read the full story here if you like. What a great journey it has been! Anyway, here I am, being Ludwig's mate for more than 2 ½ years now and writing my first own Global Day Of Delurk post at what is now our joint blog.

Ludwig is no longer available as a mate, but I would like to invite all our silent readers out there to say hello nonetheless. Ludwig and I both love writing and we are lucky to have a wonderful bunch of commenters on this blog. And, of course, we are glad to know that we have many more readers who seem to enjoy our writing but prefer to remain quiet. Still it can be hard sometimes to write mostly for a silent crowd. So, if you are a reader of this blog and if you can spare a few minutes, please use this day to raise your head.

To give you a little additional incentive, we have decided to combine this year's Global Day Of Delurk campaign with a little film-project. Ludwig and I are going to make a clip, and it depends on you how long or short this clip is going to be. The clip will be a rather straight-forward spanking clip this time, so that we will be able publish it in a few weeks' time already.

There will be two parts of the spanking action, one with our riding crop and one with our leather paddle. And you are the ones who can decide how long the two action sequences are going to be! All you have to do is write a comment on this post. For every comment written by someone who has already commented earlier on Ludwig's Rohrstock-Palast two strokes with the riding crop will be added. And for every real first-time delurker there will be SIX strokes with the paddle! All comments that are published until the 17th of November 23:59:59 German time will be counted. The only precondition for your comment to be counted is that it isn't anonymous (please think up some kind of nickname for yourself, so we don't end up with a bunch of indistinguishable anonymous comments!).

So, use your chance to say hi if you like, and help us to create a funny little piece of spanking art together! And in case you prefer to remain silent, I would like to use this post to say: Thank you very much for reading our blog and we hope that you are having a good time with us!

I've regularly read your blog but never commented before but couldn't resist the idea that just by commenting a lady will get a sore bottom. It's an interesting idea and I look forward to seeing the results. Keep up the good work.

Lydia said...

I love reading your writing, because they always strike me as introspective and original. Please keep up the good work. :)

This Blog has some of the more thoughful prose on spanking in the cyberworld. Cheers.

Hermione said...

Hi Kaeleh and Ludwig,

I'm a regular visitor and an irregular commenter. Is that a spanking offense? Thanks for being a part of LOL 6.

Hugs,
Hermione

Wow - I can't believe it's that time of year again. I cannot remember, in which year I first posted a comment; but I must say, time really flies.

Raven Red said...

For over a year, I have looked and retreated...so here it is. Delurked!

Hope you have a lovely LOL day!

Hugs

Raven

Indy said...

I think I've been commenting on this blog since the very beginning, but I simply can't resist doing my bit to help the two of you make another lovely film!

This blog is special to me. Even if I didn't know either of you, the thoughtful and honest writing would make it one of my favorites. That I've come to know both of you in person as a result makes it all the better.

Hugs,
Indy

Lurk more than I comment but do enjoy reading your posts.

Not really a lurker as I have added a few comments before today.
Happy LOL day!

Hey, I'm not really a lurker, but I'll take this opportunity to thank you and Ludwig for your thoughtful and provocative posts!

Happy Global Day Of Delurk, Kaeleh and Ludwig. I am not a lurker but have not commented on your wonderful site in a while. This blog provides provocative prose and stunning visuals with lovely photos and videos of you both. I have a request, since I am not a lurker this comment counts as two strokes with the riding crop, but since I haven't commented in a while this comment may be considered delurking in a fashion so hopefully you will also count it as six paddle swats as well. Up to you two but I know you have generous hearts so will want to use the higher counts. I know your readers will prefer that. :-)

Chross said...

Hi Kaelah and Ludwig,

I have commented before, so only rarely (as it is a bad habit of mine).

I want to trade in my two riding crop strokes for one paddle stroke, though ;) !
Not a big fan of the crop... :D

Cheers
Chross

Greenwoman said...

Hello! Not sure if I've commented here in the past, but I've been following your blog in my Reader for a long while. Great blog. I'm looking forward to the clip. *smiles* Happy LOL Day!

Happy Lurker's Day #6, Ludwig. I like your blog. Thanks.

sixofthebest said...

Happy Lurker's Day #6 Ludwig. I like your blog. Thanks, and many more to come.

Hi Kaeleh & Ludwig -

long time reader, first time poster. I've enjoyed following your relationship over the last several years.

best wishes,

Two more with the crop here :) Happy LOL day.

Erica said...

Global Day of Delurk -- love it! And I love the cute little squirrel, too. I enjoy your posts, and now that we've met, I can picture your smiling face when I read them!

! said...

Well, looks like I delurked on the same day Kaelah delurked. Happy LoL day, guys! Keep the posts up!

FatFreddy said...

I've never commented here before, so count me as a "6", please. As so many, I'm a regular and silent reader who appreciates your work and thoughts very much. Keep on bloggin'!

Mija said...

You have the most romantic LOL story ever. I love reading about the two of you, every year. It was even better this year after having met you both. :)

Elsie said...

Hi! Another long-time lurker here, but I'll probably comment more now I've taken the first step. I particularly love your more philosophical posts but am also looking forward to the new video!

A.S.S. said...

Happy LOL Day! Long time fans and we have commented before. So, two spanks on us!

:)

Spearthrower said...

When I see that there are already 23 (!) commentators, I really hesitated to comment. But, well, you asked for it!

As I have said before, I read your blog often and enjoy it greatly. Good writing and good kink make a great combination. Looking forward to the clip!

Bonnie said...

Art? I love art and I am willing to do what I can to advance the cause of art.

Seriously, you two have an excellent blog and I appreciate all you do.

Hugs,
Bonnie

Spankfun said...

"Delurking" sounds so fine that you got me to do just that - adding a comment here for the pleasure of later visitors of your blog who enjoy one of the most thoughtful spanking blogs written by Germans.
All the best,
spankfun

Kaelah said...

Wow, so many comments, and already seven real delurkers as it seems! Where have I gotten myself into??? Well, however, keep them coming, I'm more than willing to pay the price. :-)

@ Simon:
Welcome! See, I knew that I just had to give you the right incentive... ;-) I hope you will enjoy the clip.

@ Lydia:
Hello, nice to meet you! Thanks a lot for saying hi and for your kind comment.

@ Our Bottoms Burn:
It's good to have you here, Bogey and Bacall. :-)

@ Hermione:
Hmm, I think it is indeed! ;-) It seems like it won't be you who gets spanked, though, but me. I've added two strokes with the riding crop for your comment. :-)

@ !:
We delurked in the same year indeed! It's good to have you around here at the Rohrstock-Palast. Hope to meet you again soon as well. :-)

@ Raven Red:
Thanks a lot for delurking and welcome! I hope to hear more from you in the future. :-)

@ Indy:
It's so good to have you here! And I love your completely selfless attempt to help us with our little film project. Thank you! ;-)

@ Ronnie:
Thank you very much for saying hello. I'm glad you enjoy the blog!

@ Fred Bloggs:
Thanks for stopping by, Fred! I hope you had a good LOL Day as well.

@ Karl Friedrich Gauss:
You are definitely not a lurker. Thank you very much for all the time you take to comment.

@ Michael:
Thanks for re-delurking! :-) I hope you don't mind that I won't count you as a real delurker, though. There are already so many more delurkers than I expected that you will get to see a lot more paddle strokes than originally planned, anyway! The number of paddle strokes is even a lot higher than the number of strokes with the riding crop at the moment. So, no need to worry that the action scene could become too short!

@ Chross:
Hi, thanks for stopping by! I can't swap your riding crop strokes for paddle strokes, though, because it would bring chaos into my universe of numbers. Hey, after all I'm German and an INTJ! ;-) But don't worry, as I've already written in my reply to Michael, there will be so many paddle strokes that you won't get a raw deal.

Kaelah said...

@ Greenwoman:
You have indeed commented before (LOL Day 2008)! Thank you very much for re-delurking and I hope you will like the clip. :-)

@ sixofthebest:
Thanks for stopping by!

@ Bob Koch:
It's a pleasure to meet you! I must admit it is a funny thought that you already know us for quite a while and we had no idea about you. Thank you very much for saying hi and letting us know that you are here. :-)

@ Prefectdt:
Two strokes have already been added to the score!

@ Erica:
I always wanted to post a LOL Day picture with a “delurking” animal. I thought about a mole first, but then I came across that lovely little squirrel. Thank you for your kind comment! :-)

@ FatFreddy:
Welcome and thank you very much for having stepped out for the dark! It's good to hear that you enjoy our blog. :-)

@ Mija:
It was great to meet you and it's good to have you here!

@ Elsie:
It's very nice to meet you. :-) Thank you for having taken the plunge, I definitely hope to hear more from you in the future!

@ Todd and Suzy:
Your two strokes have been added!

@ Spearthrower:
No reason to hesitate, I've set myself up for it and now I'm going to face the music. ;-) I'm actually looking forward to the spanking. And given the high number of strokes with the paddle, two additional warm-up strokes with the riding crop might not be such a bad idea after all. Thank you very much for your kind comment!

@ Bonnie:
Thanks for having organised LOL Day and for stopping by! It's always good to have people who so selflessly support other people's attempts to create art. ;-)

@ Spankfun:
Welcome! Thanks a lot for delurking and for your nice comment. :-)

Ursus Lewis said...

I think this is the first time I comment on that blog? *thinking hard* Yeah, I can't remember doing it before... ;)

Peter8862 said...

Just wanted to add my twopennoth of crop. You both deserve all the nice things people say and we are all the richer for your thoughts, not forgetting the odd nonagenarian.

Ludwig - Not too hard please !

! said...

@Kaelah - I'll most likely be going to Heidelberg for the summer. I'll email you as soon as I firm my plans up.

Kaelah said...

@ Ursus:
Hmm, try that again in about 40 years' time! Well, maybe you even believe that you have never commented before by then...? I'm not so sure whether you will get the chance to try that it, though, because as Ludwig remarked: “Who would like to see the two of us in a spanking clip in 40 years' time??? Except maybe for some people with a very strange kink...” ;-)

@ Peter:
Thanks for your kind words! :-) And I am going to remind Ludwig not to make the strokes too hard! I'm just not sure whether he will listen... ;-)

@ !:
That sounds cool! Heidelberg is beautiful. :-)

Cane not Caine said...

Hi Kaelah!

Can you take 6 more Strokes? ;)

Great Blog from both of you, always worth a Look!

Greetings from North Bavaria!

Gaviao said...

Hello Kaelah: Long time no write, but I visit your blog frequently. The new clip will be very interesting. I admire your courage. Prepare your beautiful ass to get my two lashes.

Saro said...

Hi Kaela,
It seems I only make an annual comment to your blog!
wait, unless the last was still 2011 -- I can't remember.
At any rate you blogging is as interesting and pleasurable to read as last year...
best regards with my "2".

New one said...

Not reading your blog for seven days only and almost missed the opportunity for another proxy-spanking!
I'm happy to have lurked in just in time to add my two.
Enjoy!

doclash said...

Hi,

I've been too busy to add any comments for quite a while now, but I am still around. Obviously I could not miss this opportunity of giving both of you an excuse for just a little more fun!

Looking forward to the result ...

Congratulations on keeping such a high quality blog going for so long.

Best regards.

Kaelah said...

Rien ne va plus! Thank you all for commenting. It seems like I have a proper spanking coming... :-)

@ Cane not Caine:
Welcome and thanks for delurking! It's nice to have another Bavarian around. North Bavaria sounds like “Frankenland”, though, right?! Well, it doesn't make any difference from my perspective, since I'm Prussian, anyway. But I know that it makes a difference for (most) Bavarians! ;-) “Can you take six more strokes?” - Yes, I can! :-)

@ Gaviao, Saro and New one:
It's funny to have all three of you back almost at the same time! I hope you liked the “Dachshunds in Space” blogiversary clip?

@ Gaviao:
It's good to hear that you are still a frequent blog visitor! Did I pronounce your name correctly in the last clip? I searched for a pronunciation sample of Gaviao and found one, but I wasn't 100 per cent sure whether your nickname really refers to the Portuguese word for hawk.

@ Saro:
I'm glad to know that you are still around! I asked Ursus about you when he commented on the blogiversary clip, and he told me that you had kind of “deserted” (= moved away). I wasn't sure about the pronunciation of your name in the last clip. How is Saro pronounced correctly?

@ New one:
Yep, you were definitely in time! Your two strokes have been added to the score.

@ doclash:
Thank you very much for your kind words! :-)

Cane not Caine said...

Yeah, you're right, it's "Frankenland".

And Yeah, it makes a big difference. You have a good chance to get spanked, if you name People from "Frankenland" Bavarians ... :D ;)

If you ask South Bavarians about North Bavarians, you'll very often get the Answer, that everyone who lives northward from the "Weißwurstäquator" (the River "Donau") is a Prussian.

So in this point of view i'm a Prussian too. ;)

Kaelah said...

@ Cane not Caine:

So you're another Prussian reader then. Great! :-)

I know about the strict distinction between Bavarians and Prussians in Bavaria. Although from my experience Bavarians tend to be quite nice to Prussians. I guess that is because they feel superior to us, though. Big dogs usually don't bark at little ones... ;-)
