Why "three", you ask?
Because January 16th marked the Three-Year Blogiversary of Spanking Minnesota!
That's right, three years ago I sat down in front of my computer and said to myself, "I should write a spanking blog." And every year after that, when the anniversary of that date rolls around, I stop, take a deep breath, and ask myself the same question: "What the hell was I thinking???"
It probably took the first year alone for me to figure out what I wanted the blog to be. I started out rather pedantic. I quickly realized that there wasn't much need for yet another spanking blog telling people to use safewords. It took time, but I finally found the formula that I liked, that was closest to my own personality--I've always thought of spanking as something fun between two consenting adults, therefore the blog should try to reflect that fun.
(And yes, even a serious discipline scene can be "fun" as long as it's consensual and both spanker and spankee are getting what they want and/or need from the scene. "Fun" does not necessarily mean that you're just playing pattycake back there, or spanking in a more sensual manner, or limiting yourself to "mock discipline" sessions.)
So here's to three years of song parodies, humorous photo captions, and reports of spanking in the media. Here's to movie and TV reviews of full-blown spanking scenes or the occasional one-whacker.
Grab a party hat and a noisemaker. Cake and ice cream will be served. And for any ladies wishing to receive three swats in celebration of the day, the line forms on my right.
Let the spankings continue!
