Every Day and Twice on Sunday

I'm going to take a sabbatical from blogging. No one is dead, dying, or even sick. No one has outed us. I haven't run out of spanko topics. We're not giving up on our lifestyle or our relationship. I just need some time away.

In a little over ten months, I've posted 369 times. There have been stories, songs, searches, and spankologues; polls, poems, puzzles, and parodies; brunches and games, quizzes and memes; top tens and tutorials, mailbags and more. I've met dozens of delightful and interesting people. I've responded to hundreds of e-mails and reader comments. Three quarters of a million times, someone has clicked on a link that leads to MBS. It's been a fantastic experience and I am grateful for every moment.

The fact is that I need a break. I'm not lacking for inspiration, so much as for energy and time. I need to recharge my batteries before beginning again. Randy and I have scheduled two vacations in the coming weeks (one with family and one just for us). I'm ready to focus my full attention on my husband.

I considered preparing a bunch of posts in advance. I contemplated enlisting guest posters. In the end, I decided to let the blog speak for itself.

I'll be back. Until then, I invite you to explore my archive. There's a lot of good stuff there that most visitors haven't read. If you're looking for more, please try the links at the right. You'll find excellent writing, amazing stories, and fascinating people.

Thank you for your support, and I'll see you soon!

Hope you have a good vacation and come back feeling refreshed and relaxed! :-)

Doc said...

I'll miss you Bonnie! But a vacation is a good thing for the soul and I'll be looking forward to your return. After all, absence makes the heart grow fonder :D

Mary said...

Have fun on your vacation. I wish you would have stuck with the brunch idea -- but it wouldn't be the same without you. SO have fun and see you later.

Tight said...

WOW -- this will likely sound goofy -- since I have NO IDEA who you are and you have less of an idea who I am -- but your blog is one of my daily reads and is always a source of a smile and sometimes more.

Have a good time and remind Randy what A LUCKY GUY HE IS!!

Bonnie, I will have something on my blog tomorrow that I wrote several days ago. Please try to give it a quick read before fly off to vacation land! It is something you need to know!

Enjoy, relax and we'll see you when you get back!

Much love,

Grace said...

Bonnie, whatever will we do without you??? I guess we'll have to write up our own stuff... ~sigh~

Now I have to think of something to write about! ;)

Well,have a spanking good time! We'll leave the light on for you.

Hugs and blessings!

Enjoy your time of relaxation and recreation!

Now, I'll be able to catch up on your prolific and excellent posting. Always a pleasure to read and share with you. Rest assured we all will be looking forward to your return, but take your time.


PS: Oh yes, we'll be watching for you every day and twice on Sunday, ... still. And, great disclaimer, I think you got all the worries covered.

Everyone deserves a break now and again. And everyone deserves more of a vacation than they actually get to enjoy.

Have fun, and do something naughty when the opportunity arises. ;)

Bonnie: have a great rest, and wonderful vacations. Everyone needs a break from blogging daily, and anyone interested can simply start re-reading from the beginning while you are away.
Just make certainto wear a thong weekly as a minimum.
enjoy life

Paul said...

We'll miss you, but we'll still be here when you get back.

Dearest Bonnie,

You will be sorely missed but in your absence I can only hope that you are getting sore in all the right ways... Yes, indeed I shall be here when you return... and can't wait to read new stories of your adventures with Randy.

Biggest hugs,

kk said...

Enjoy Randy and family.

Irch said...

please hurry back! life won't be the same without the daily dose of fun here!

Pandora Sox said...


I had already written my next entry for my blog when I saw that you are taking a wise and well deserved break - not that it would make me change my mind on publishing a post I have done especially for you.

Thank you for being considerate and letting us all know about your decision rather than just disappearing.

I wish you only the best for every day to come.

Doc Tsai said...

Smart move!
Relax and enjoy yourself!!

Bonnie said...

Everybody - Wow. Thanks!

Randy bet me I couldn't stay away from the blog and he was right. I'll leave to your imagination what the wager was, but he'll be collecting later tonight.

Due to popular demand, I'm going to continue with the brunches as much as circumstances allow. As for the rest of the regular features, they'll be back before you know it.

Hugs to all
