Blogger Meme

I guess everyone else has completed this meme. It must be my turn.

1. What was the first blog that you regularly read?

There were several that I really admired including the Spanking Blog by SpankBoss, Patty's previous blog, I'll Beg by Kasey, Angelbrat by Tracy, and a couple more that are now defunct.

These were the folks who inspired me to try my hand at blogging. SpankBoss taught me that even a subject as seemingly narrow as adult spanking can be presented in a thousand interesting ways. Patty instructed me about the value of posting regularly and delivering a quality product. From Kasey, I learned that a blog could be a place to share wondrous emotions and fantastically sexy experiences. Tracy showed me through her example that it's often better to paint a vivid picture in the reader's imagination than to post an explicit photo that leaves nothing to the imagination.

Beyond the basic subject matter, my blog isn't much like any of these. But all of them helped to shape what this blog became.

2. Do you remember the first blogger with whom you had an e-mail relationship?

I believe it was Janeen. If you're out there, we still love you!

3. Why did you create your blog?

I wanted to share a collection of original spanking stories I had written. I also had a few ideas for new articles I wanted to explore. I figured I would run out of material within a couple of months.

4. When was your first post, and who was your first commenter?

It was September 24, 2005. I recall getting very, very few comments during the first month of my blog. I posted a bunch of my all time favorite stories and it seemed that no one noticed.

This is why I make a special effort to greet and encourage new bloggers. I almost gave up because I received no feedback at all - good, bad, or otherwise. Needless to say, I'm glad I stuck with it.

5. Are there blogs that you absolutely have to visit daily?

Yes. The list is so lengthy that I've started using an RSS reader in hopes of doing a better job of keeping up.

6. Is your blog categorized? (i.e. Comedy, Literary, Personal Angst, Etc.)

If I get to categorize it, MBS is a spanko blog - Nothing more and nothing less.

7. Do you see an end to your blogging someday?

Yes, of course. All things must pass.

8. What are you wearing right this very minute?

It's a summer weight pink nightgown with white lace trim.

Bonnie, well I for one am very pleased that you stuck to your guns.
You are probably one of the more popular spanking blogs in our community.
Though each individual defines that community for them selves.
113 took your poll, that's not bad.
Warm hugs,

I echo Paul's comment. I'm glad you stuck with it. You just never know who might stumble across your blog (like me) and find a safe haven and many virtual soul-mates.
A suggestion - how about a link in your post to that very first entry in your blog.

I'm glad you have stuck with your blog too, bonnie. You have a lot of great information for new bloggers and spankos. :)
I know Janeen was one of the first also to e-mail me. I miss her a lot. I hope she's doing ok.
