Eleven years ago, in 2008, I wrote my first-ever comment on a kinky blog. At the time, I was a total newbie to the world of erotic spanking, and had no practical experience whatsoever. I wrote my comment because us silent readers had been invited to do so on a special occasion titled Love Our Lurkers Day. The blog I commented on was called Rohrstock-Palast and belonged to a guy named Ludwig. It was not only my first comment on a kinky blog, it was my first-ever comment on any kind of blog, and I was very nervous when I finally hit the "publish comment" button.
About three months later, I had lost my virginity in the field of erotic spanking to Ludwig, with whom I had started an intense email-conversation, whom I had then met in person and who had quickly become a close friend. On LOL Day 2009, we were already writing this blog together, not as friends but as mates. As a couple, we made lots of new kinky experiences, met fellow kinksters and even produced some spanking videos – all of which we shared with you on this blog.
Today, eleven years, one wedding and two little ones later, our lives have altered completely. And so has the kinky community. Thankfully, there are a few constants, like the presence of Bonnie, the inventor of LOL Day, and Hermione, who hosts LOL Day now, and their blogs. Many thanks to both of you! Apart from that, fellow bloggers have come and gone, and so have commenters.
Sometimes there have been happy and unexpected returns, too. In April this year we got a heads-up from Ursus Lewis, who used to be an avid commenter for many years, but had stopped commenting in 2014. It was great to hear that you are still out there and doing fine! And then in July this year, our lovely fellow-blogger Spankedhortic (Prefectdt) was finally able to resume blogging, after having been forced to quit due to problems with his eyesight in 2014. It's wonderful to have you back!
Since this blog isn't as active anymore as at used to be some years ago, I don't know how many silent readers are out there, if any. But if you are, you are wholeheartedly invited and very welcome to write a comment and say hi! You don't have to be very creative and you don't have to share anything about yourself you aren't comfortable sharing. It would just be great to hear from you! And don't worry, you don't have to marry anyone just because you have decided to write a comment. ;-)
Since LOL Day (or the Global Day of Delurk, as we like to call it on our blog) is very dear to our hearts, I would like to use this occasion to make at least a small announcement: I have planned to add a new infrequent series of posts to my blogging routine titled "Snippets from a fantasy". As the title says, these posts will contain short snippets (a few paragraphs long) from kinky fantasies of mine, leaving enough space for you to fill in the voids with your own fantasies and ideas. I hope you'll enjoy it! If you are interested, you are invited to come back on Sunday, when I will publish the very first instalment titled "The Mirror".
Until then, thank you very much for reading and for accompanying Ludwig and me on our journey!
