In with the New: Winter Edition


Over the past month, a few of my favorite spanko bloggers have decided to give up this pastime in favor of more pressing pursuits. While I fully respect their choice, I will miss reading their inspired and inspiring words. It makes me sad that these friends are gone.

At the same time, I've discovered a number of great new spanko (or spanking-related) blogs created during the previous few months.

I'm delighted to highlight sixteen more blogs that I hope you will explore and enjoy. When you visit, I encourage you to not only read, but also to offer some encouragement. It's difficult to start a new blog. In the beginning, it feels as though you're writing for no one. A few positive comments at the right time can make the difference between a successful blog and an abandoned effort.

Check these out!

Here are some suggestions I assembled as a guide to enhancing your blog. While it's certainly not the final word, I think you will find a number of useful tips.

Hey Bonnie,
I just wanted to let you know that I screwed up something on my blog while trying to update blogger and both myself and Rowan were removed from our own blog. I am reconstructing at a new URL which is

all my love,
Ree

Thank you for the link Bonnie, I really do appreciate it. Also thanks for the links to your blog tips, I admit that I lack in the know hows when it comes to computers, blogs etc. so the tips will come in very handy.

Hi Bonnie! I finally hit the link to visit your blog and you just so happened to be posting about other spanking blogs! I have one, so if you haven't visited I would love for you to!

Amber - You're most welcome!

FBG - I considered including your blog in this post, but I didn't because although I just found you, you have been blogging longer than I have.

Nevertheless, I believe your blog is worthy of readers' attention and I will be recognizing it here soon.

BTW, I love your wooden paddles! They look to be both effective and fun.

Ree - Thanks. My link is updated.

Spanked - You're welcome.

Don't worry too much about the finer points of blogging, at least not all at once here at the beginning. For now, it's enough that you have an interesting story to share and you tell it well. The rest will come in time.

Tigger - I'm glad to be able to recommend so many great new blogs!

Paul - Thanks.

Emilie - Thank you for pointing out my oversight. I assure you it wasn't intentional. I just included your blog in this post and in my blogroll.

It's a pleasure to meet you and thanks for stopping by! I look forward to reading about your adventures!

As for Dave and Cindy, I'm already a big fan. I included them in my fall new blog roundup.

Dear Bonnie,

I am deeply honoured to be mentioned in your blog and to find a link in your 'shortlist' of new ones.

Thank you again and keep up the good work with your lovely blog.

Vivian - You add a unique and valuable perspective to our community. I look forward to reading more of your thoughts.

Janice - You're most welcome. I love your imagination!

Pandora - I'm delighted to be able to be able to support fledgling bloggers. There simply can't be too much spanko goodness!
