Love Our Lurkers 11

Welcome to Day 1 of the 11th annual LOVE OUR LURKERS celebration!

Every year we like to set aside a day or two for all of our wonderful readers out there who lurk--that is, those who come in, read the latest post, maybe browse around the blog, and then leave without commenting.  Everybody does it.  Heck, I lurk on a lot of blogs!  We deeply appreciate the fact that you come in and look around.  It's true--we Love Our Lurkers.

But once a year, we ask that you change your lurking ways and leave a comment.  We really want to hear from you.  Tell me what you like about the blog, or what you don't like.  Ask me a question--I'll do my best to answer it.  Or just say "hello".  Whatever you feel like sharing would be fine.  If you've commented on this blog in the past--leave a comment anyway.  All are welcome to participate.

My thanks to Bonnie of My Bottom Smarts who helped organize the original Love Our Lurkers day.  And thanks also to Hermione of Hermione's Heart for helping to keep the tradition going.  You can find a list of those participating in LOL 11 on her blog here..  It's a good chance to check out some blogs you haven't seen before--and, of course, leave a little note to say how much you enjoyed their posts.  I know they'd be thrilled to hear from those of you visiting their blogs for the first time.

And for those of you who may be visiting SPANKING MINNESOTA for the first time--I'm Dr. Ken, a lifelong Top and spanking enthusiast.  Over the years, I've accumulated a lot of spanking photos in several computer archives, and now I use them in my posts.  Some are old, some are new--or, at least, newer.  Some you may have seen a hundred times, some--I hope--you're seeing for the first time.  I enjoy introducing fellow Spankos to old favorites as well as new finds.

I post daily.  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are sort of potpourri days--the posts might be about anything, from Vintage spanking photos to spanking illustrations to book and magazine covers to birthday spankings to a photo set.  The other four days of the week are more structured.  Thursdays, for example, have just recently become "Taking Turns Thursday"--photos where the Spanker and Spankee wind up switching roles.  Fridays are dedicated to "Friday's Scream Queen"--a photo which shows the spankee having a decided vocal reaction to what is happening.  Since today is Friday, here's an example:

Saturday is "Spankable Saturday"--photos of ladies with beautiful behinds that would make a Spanker's palm start to itch.  And Sunday is "Spanking Sunday"--a variety of spanking photos from all over the web.

So, if this is your first time here, browse around and if you like what you see, please keep coming back.  If you don't like what you see, thanks for at least checking the blog out.

And whether you found something you like or not--today and tomorrow are LOVE OUR LURKERS days, so please leave a comment.  I'd love to hear from you.

Hi Dr. Ken, I do enjoy my visits here but don't always leave a comment. Happy LOL day.


Katie said...

Hi Dr Ken! Happy LOL Days to you! It's nice to meet you! I've never been by before.

I've been blogging about my ttwd relationship, with my husband Rob, for over four years now. This is my 4th LOL Day. I love meeting lurkers on my blog, as well as saying hi to old friends here. It is also very fun to discover other blogs through this event, such as yours. I enjoyed your LOL Day post! Have fun! Many hugs,

<3 Katie

Michael M said...

I always take a look but only occasionally comment on your good blog.

Dr. Ken, I visit your blog daily. Thanks for taking the time and energy to do this for the rest of us!

lindy thomas said...

Hello Dr Ken, I drop by regularly and love seeing your post. Don't often comment though. Have a happy LOL day and hope you have lots of new readers come by.

Hugs Lindy

Ripley said...

Hi. I read here occasionally, comment ... well, maybe never. Happy LOL day!

Ripley said...

Hi. I tried to leave a comment but it didn't seem to take. Trying again! Happy LOL day.

Dr. Ken said...

ronnie --I've been known to do the same with your wonderful blog. Whether you comment or not, I'm glad you drop by!

Katie -- Very nice to meet you, too! I hope you come back often, and I appreciate the comment! Part of the fun of LOL day, I think, is the chance to discover new blogs that you don't ordinarily visit. I hope you make SPANKING MINNESOTA a regular stop!

Michael M -- As we all know, comments are appreciated but by no means necessary. I'm glad to hear that you come by to look, and I hope you enjoy the blog when you do.

Jane -- I'm glad to hear you're a regular! :-) Doing the blog is a pleasure--thanks for your kind words.

Minelle Labraun -- I recognize the name. Thanks for dropping by. Even the occasional comment is always welcome!

an English Rose -- Thanks, Jan! I don't have the time, money or equipment to photograph original material, so I enjoy "recycling" the photos that I've saved up over the years. I'm glad to hear you enjoy them!

Downunder Don -- I'm happy to hear from a long time reader! And thanks for the comment on this post!

Jz -- There's a lot to be said about vintage stuff. And for those who are just now discovering their interest in spanking--well, it's all new material to them, and I'm pleased I can share it.

Lilli Clairmont -- Faith, Hope, and Love to you, too!

OldFashionGirl-- I always enjoy my visits to your blog and the great photos that you share! I hope you keep dropping in!

abby--thanks for the encouraging words. I'll do what I can. :-)

Cat -- I'm glad you enjoy the pictures. (I usually close by saying, "Hugs and spanks", but "Hugs and blessings" is pretty neat, too!)

Dr. Ken said...

lindy thomas -- thanks, lindy! New readers or old, I'm just happy that people are dropping by and participating in LOL Day! It's just very cool...

Ripley -- Hi! Well, you've now gone from never commenting to "well, at least once". BTW, because of the amount of spam that sometimes gets aimed at the blog, I always have it set to where I can moderate the posts before they go up. That's why your first try didn't "take"--it actually came through, but it had to wait for me to okay it.

Leigh Smith said...

I visit on a regular basis and if I've failed to leave comments then I guess I deserve a spanking.

Happy LOL Day.

Leigh Smith said...

Could have sworn I left a comment, but can't find it. Anyway, I visit your site all the time and rarely, if ever, have I left a comment. Shame on me. Maybe I deserve a spanking.
Happy Days

Dr. Ken said...

Leigh Smith -- I'm always happy to hear that someone visits the blog "all the time". As for "rarely, if ever" leaving a comment--yes, you do deserve a good spanking, young lady. I'll be right over! (Although, considering I have no idea where you live, "right over" might be a bit of an exaggeration....) :-)

As I mentioned to Ripley, I moderate all the comments on the blog in order to eliminate spam. This means that any comment you post will not appear right away, so you may not find it. Rest assured I do get to them all eventually!

Happy LOL Day!

Enzo said...

Dr. Ken - Happy LOL Days! Long time visitor, visit as often as I can and comment in clusters (or so it seems). Always enjoy all your vintage (I guess 80's is considered vintage now too?) pictures as so many are new to me.

Best always,

Dr. Ken said...

Diary of Daisy -- Thank you, Daisy, and thanks for stopping by! I appreciate the comment!

Enzo -- I always look forward to your "clusters", and am always happy when you drop by!
