January 16th, 2008. A Wednesday. That's the day I sat down at my computer and created Spanking Minnesota. And now, here I am, 7 years later, still going strong. And it's all because of YOU, the people who come and visit this little corner of the spanking universe.
Perhaps instead of "going strong", I should say that I'm going stronger! When I first started this blog, and for the first 5 years of its existence, the publishing schedule was sporadic. A post every two or three days was normal. Sometimes it might have been a post per week. It all depended on my mood and my time management. I don't have a photo studio, or a decent camera. I can't afford to hire models and film original material. I relied on the good old spanking pictures that I had downloaded from various sources, all in the public domain (as far as I know, anyway).
Last year, I decided to try something different. Those picture archives contain thousands of photos from over the years. Many were spanking photos, many were simply photos of models with beautiful derrieres. I decided to rely on them and started posting on a daily basis. The amount of writing I did on the blog decreased while the picture content increased.
So far, it's worked well. I'm managing to post daily without feeling rushed or pressured or like "I don't have time to do this!" Unless that changes, I'll continue to empty out the archives. Yes, the pictures are old--but there are new people discovering the Wonderful World Of Spanking every day, and they've never seen those old photos before. To borrow a line from an old network TV campaign, "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you!" And those old photos deserve to be brought out, looked at, and remembered.
So--ladies, it's my 7-year celebration! Line up and let's get this party started!
