Social interaction makes the world go round. Today (and tomorrow) are Love our Lurkers day - the ninth one to date. I missed a couple. You've probably noticed that I've been a bit sporadic at keeping this blog updated since I launched Dreams of Spanking in 2011. Keeping a membership site updated with a new film and image gallery every week creates a fairly hectic schedule. But when I wasn't doing it so much, I really felt the absence of personal blogging.
This blog has been a consistent part of most of my adult life. I wrote the first post in August 2006, after my first spanking video shoot with English Spankers. But it was never just a professional blog - as well as my spanking porn work, I immediately started writing about my private kinky relationships and play - and in October 2006 I wrote my first post about the proposed extreme porn legislation. Kink, porn and politics have been the focus of this blog since the start. And eight years later, I'm still writing. Are you still reading?
This year - since hiring AJ and Girl on the Net to help out with the week-to-week running of Dreams of Spanking - I've been making a real effort to blog here more frequently. And I'm not doing badly; I've written 55 posts this year already, compared with only 32 in 2013. But we don't have the conversations we used to. I miss our chats! I know I went quiet for a while, but I'm here now.
To be honest, I'll keep on writing either way. Blogging is in my soul - I can't help it, no matter how creatively fulfilled I am elsewhere. I need this outlet, and I write for myself first and foremost. But it's so much more fun and interesting if you talk back.
Are you out there? This is your chance to say hello. Maybe we used to talk regularly. Maybe you've never left a comment. You don't have to say anything exciting - just let me know you're there.
