So first, thanks to Bonnie for organzing this event and getting a large number of the spanking community involved. Second, thanks to everyone who participated--either by hosting the event on their blogs, or by de-lurking and leaving comments!
The day brought about two very happy results. The first--and probably the most satisfying--was to see the names of some of the people who delurked. A good number of them are bloggers, as well, and in many cases I was familiar with their work. I heard from so many people whose blogs I respect and admire that it gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling to realize that they read my blog and were kind enough to say nice things about it. That's really something special to me, and I appreciate it a great deal.
The other happy result? I now have a whole lot of new blogs that I want to go back to and read! On My Bottom Smarts, Bonnie kept a running list of all the blogs that participated in LOL Day. As I saw the comments rolling in here, I decided that I wanted to visit each blog on the list and leave a comment. (I think I may have missed a few.....my apologies to them!) As I went to each new site, I couldn't help but look around at some of the previous posts, and the same thought kept repeating itself time after time: "I want to come back here again and dig into the archives."
After all, if I didn't do some looking around, I would never have found this image from DarkCasket.com on Dixie's blog, The Inner Workings of Dixie (thedixiewithin.blogspot.com).
Being a big Disney fan--and knowing a few others--I had to grab the image and post it here. I never would have found it if not for LOL Day.
So now my plan is this--go back to Bonnie's list and work my way down it, one blog at a time, and when I find one that I like or that looks promising I'm going to add it to my blog roll. I've got a feeling the blog roll is going to be getting huge before this is over. :-)
In fact, thanks to LOL Day, the are three new additions to the roll, and you can find links to them on the right hand side of the screen. The first probably needs no real introduction, it's simply one of the best blogs around, and that's Todd and Suzy's American Spanking Society.
When I left a comment on their blog, I poked around for a bit and then asked myself, "Why don't I already have them linked?" I couldn't answer that, so it only makes sense to finally add thm to the roll.
Other additions are Jai's Confessions of a College Spanko and SpankingBarbie's Blogs of a Mid Life Crisis. Please go visit all of them and leave them a nice note or comment. Tell 'em Dr. Ken sent you.
Now--where'd I put my reading glasses??
