4th Annual LOVE OUR LURKERS Day

It's that time of year again. Spanking blogs all over the net are going to proudly proclaim that fact that we.......





The people who come to read and look at what we post are the lifeblood of every blog out there. Yes, we love it when you leave comments--but we know the majority of people don't, for a variety of reasons. That's fine--you have every right to make that choice. It doesn't mean that we appreciate you any less.

But we do pay attention to you. We can see by the numbers how many people actually come by and take a peek at our efforts. (In the case of this blog, that comes to slightly over 339,000 of you since I started writing in January of 2007.) It's easy to tell by how many of you come by which posts you enjoy and which ones are less successful. We try to make our blogs into something that you will want to come and visit. You may not leave a comment--but you are taken into account nonetheless.

So this is our day to show a little blog love to everybody out there who drops in to peruse a post or a few paragraphs. To all of you we say, "Thanks".

And this is the day that we encourage all of you--for at least this one day--to speak up and say what's on your mind. We urge you to break your lurking status just this once and leave a comment, even if it's just to say, "hi", or to tell us where your from, or what you like/don't like about the blog. It's your forum, and I, for one, am happy to turn it over to the silent majority in honor of this day.

We do love our lurkers--and on this day, we turn the comments section over to you. Feel free to drop me a note!

'Cause like all the other bloggers out there....I love my lurkers, too!

Just accidentally found your blog today so I am not a lurker, but I will return again and again and perhaps will not lurk. Thanks.

My time for reading other people's blogs has been severely limited ever since I started my own, but I do lurk around here when I can. You're running one of the more interesting spanking blogs out there. Keep up the good work, and happy LOL day.

I have a candidate from your area who needs to have her bloomers taken down, and given 6, 12 or 25 strokes of a pliable stinging cane, on her bare bottom, her name is Michele Bachmann, congresswoman of the Minnesota. The only calender I would like to see her in is "Spank this Woman good". So say I. Do you feel the same way?

cali_sweetheart1961 said...

Dr. Ken said...

FunKayLynn--A pleasure to see you here, whether you're lurking or not. Come back often!

Michael--thanks! I plan to keep going until they pry the keyboard from my cold, dead hand!
(Gawd, Charlton Heston was creepy...)

SpankedHortic--that's why I haven't posted anything new yet--doesn't matter how many days have gone by, a comment is always welcome!

Ludwig--happy to see you here. Yours is one of the most interesting and intelligent blogs around, and I'm honored to have you drop in.

sixofthebest--I think the same can be said for politicians in general!

cali-sweetheart1961--un-oh, another brat...er, country heard from! :-)
Seriously, lovely to see you here, Kaitie!
