Sixth Blogiversary

Six of the best! My, isn't that the perfect anniversary for a spanking blog?

When I published my first post on 25th January 2008, I probably did not expect to still be doing this six years later. To be honest, I don't quite remember what I expected at the time. I don't think I thought too much about the distant future. I was just happy, excited and curious to be starting out with a blog of my own, following in the footsteps of other spanking bloggers whom I admired. Many of them have since gone into retirement. From today's point of view in 2014, "The Mad King" is beginning to look like ancient history. It's quite surreal to think that I started this long ago.

I wouldn't go as far as to say that the intervening years were six of the best in the history of kinky blogging, but they were certainly six very good years for me. When you write a blog for such a long time, it sometimes feels like a chore and a nuisance. For most of the time, however, it has been interesting and fulfilling for me.

I would like to thank all of you who follow this blog and comment, old readers and new ones. Knowing that there are people out there who are looking forward to the next post is one very important ingredient that still keeps me going after all these years. I don't know how much longer I will be writing this blog. It is safe to say, though, that Rohrstock-Palast is closer to the end of its lifetime than to the beginning. So enjoy it while it lasts!

Kaelah is with me at the moment and we are spending a nice weekend together. Maybe we will have a spanking to celebrate the blogiversary. We just haven't figured out yet who would get it. The normal custom in the kinky community is that the one celebrating an anniversary gets a spanking, but I am mostly a top and usually write about toppy stuff here, so wouldn't it be more fitting to dish one out? Ah well, we will see. Maybe we should just switch.

Happy blogiversary to me, have a nice day y'all, and thank you for reading!

Congratulations Ludwig, Yes, SIX OF THE BEST, has always stood for me the greatest 'motto' saying in corporal punishment. That is why I took it as my 'nom de plume'. Also give my best regards to your partner Kaelah. May you both always for ever more have a 'spanking good time', in future years to come.

Congratulations Ludwig for staying in business for so long a time!

I have been reading your blog for almost that long, but I don`t rember when I started to write comments.

Anyway, I am with you on the issue of pondering what to post next. Since my blog is the homepage for two yearly events, it is just a bit easier to keep writing.

I wish Kaelah and you the stamina to last through the next "six of the best" years with your blog.


Happy Blogiversary

If you stop blogging, we will not know how things go when you are finally able to live together.

I have been reading regularly since 2008 and look forward to it each week. Where else can we get intellectual analysis of our favorite kink as well as human interest? Keep it up and make it twelve of the best!
