Why I Blog


My Bottom Smarts had a birthday yesterday. That's right. This blog is now one month old. It would have been nice to have marked the occasion with a spanking. Alas, that celebration has yet to take place.

This is probably a good time for me to explain why this blog exists. In the beginning, I thought it would be cool to share some of my spanking experiences with the world. After all, I have been chronicling these events for more than ten years. I had all these stories just sitting around, waiting to be freed. Well, free them I did.

Since then, this blog and my concept of it have evolved. I thought there would probably be some spankos out there who might enjoy my tales. As it turns out, there are lots and lots of us! This site has been visited 28,000 times in 31 days! The numbers just floor me. I have worked for many years as a writer. In all that time, I can say with confidence that nothing I've written professionally ever had this kind of exposure.

With this rare opportunity, I feel I have a responsibility to give something back. That's why I posted the Spanking 101 tutorial. I want to share a bit of what we've learned with readers who are still figuring out this lifestyle and their place in it. If I can make their experiences a little easier or a little richer, then I am delighted to do so.

Education is great, but I want this blog to be fun - both for you and for us. Many folks, it seems, take spanking and discipline very, very seriously. Not so here. Clearly, there are issues like safety and consent that are vitally important to get right. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't enjoy some light-hearted laughter.

If there is a message here, it is that erotic spanking can be a very positive, rewarding, and pleasurable experience for both participants. Too many times, I read accounts that portray spankos as being abnormal or dangerous. In my experience, nothing could be further from the truth. We are neither sick nor broken. We are responsible people who choose to express our mutual love in this way. The spankings enrich our lives and strengthen our relationships.

One big surprise has been the human contact. I have met many new friends and reconnected with a few old ones. I have received dozens of e-mail messages. I try to answer as many as I can, but I fall behind sometimes (like now). I like to hear your opinions and your (constructive) suggestions about the site. To the extent time and energy permit, I am happy to answer your questions and share what I know. I am particularly grateful for your well wishes and encouragement. More than anything else, these sentiments inspire me to continue.

Thank you, dear reader, for being here. In the coming weeks and months, I plan to do what I can to keep this blog fresh, fun, and relevant. In the meantime, I had better get ready for bed.

Good night!

Bonnie...This is by far the best spanking blog going. I truly enjoy your wonderful writing. Your insights, advice, concern and especially the telling of your very erotic tales, are always enjoyable. Happy anniversary and I sure hope that you'll be writing and getting that sexy butt spanked for many, many more years to come. Your hubby is one very lucky dude.

Thank you all so much for your kind and supportive words. It's you folks who make this effort worthwhile.

I'd say more, but it's becoming difficult to see with these happy tears in my eyes.
