Happy bloggerversary, Bonnie! In bloggy years, 2 is something like 30 :)

No. Thank you, Bonnie. Congratulations!!

Congratulations, Bonnie! We voted for 'humor'... though it's a hard choice. Are actual favorite would have to be YOU, and the positive light you put on spanking and the spanking community. That's what we like most about your blog.

Thank you too for all the help you've given us over the last 15 months. You've helped so many bloggers... and we really appreciate that too.

Love the 2 cent coin too!

LynLass said...

Congratulations, Bonnie! What an awesome accomplishment. I've learned a lot from your site; it helped give me courage to start my own; it also has led me to visiting new sites or others that I might not have ever found on my own.

Thank you so much for being a wonderful piece of my life!

New Beginnings said...

Bonnie, you and your blog were the catalyst to changes in my life that have been so wonderul I could not have imagioned them 2 years ago. You have my sincere thanks. I could vote, you didn't have all of the above. You have done great so far I am happy to leave it all up to you.

Hugs,
PK

Paul said...

Bonnie, thank you for being there, I'm so glad that I found you.
You were the second blog that I found and have led me to so many good friends.
I have voted, but really Bonnie you are as good as it gets.
Warm hugs,
Paul.

CONGRATULATIONS ON 2 YEARS!!!
Thank you for providing such a great and helpful blog! I wanted to check all of the above on your survey but this was not possible. But, it is possible to let you know that you too are loved, considered friend by your loyal readers and as for talent you are an inspiration to many!

Hugs, Sally

Michelle said...

Congratulations on your two year anniversary of your blog! I bet that feels like such an accomplishment. I have enjoyed reading here for the last two years and even though I hardly comment, I am always reading. Congrats!!!

Caryagal said...

Happy Anniversary Bonnie!!!! I love your blog and your blog roll has linked me to so many wonderful other blogs! I can't pick just one thing I love though! I love them all!!!

Bonnie said...

TLM - Welcome, and thank you!

Lyn - You're most welcome. Friends like you make this journey worthwhile.

PK - You are, of course, very welcome. It's been great to have you and your blog as a part of our community.

Paul - Aw, thank you, dear man.

MTHC - You have indeed and I celebrate your achievements! Bravo to both of you.

Sally - Thank you so much. I didn't offer "all of the above" as a choice in this poll because that doesn't tell me much about readers' preferences.

Michelle - Thank you! You know, it does feel like an accomplishment. They were more occasions than anyone will ever know when I contemplated investing my free time in some new endeavor. But somehow, for some reason, I keep coming back. I believe this means that I haven't yet said all there is to say about the topic at hand.

Radha - Thanks!

Carye - Thank you as well for your many contributions.

Bonnie,

Happy 2 Year Anniversary! May the Sun never set on your fortune or wise ways. You are indeed an inspiration to others. I know this both personally in light of recent events and from reading the comments on this blog. Sadly, I am arriving late. However, I am grateful for the opportunity to meet such a brilliant person who gives so much of herself to others.

Janeen said...

Happy Anniversary Bonnie!

May there be many more to come.

Bonnie said...

Marcus - Thank you! You are very sweet.

Janeen - OMG! It's so great to hear from you. Thank you.

I hope all is well for you and your family. Please drop by again when time and energy permit. You'll always be welcome here.

Congratulations on 2 wonderful years, Bonnie.
The polls were tough because I like everything about your blog, but your sense of humour blows me away. The brunches are really valuable though, because it gives your readers a chance to 'speak' with you, and with others.

I like quite a few of your new ideas. Don't know how chat would work, technically it always seems to be difficult, but that would be great. The one big difference between a blog and an email list is the conversation among participants on a list, versus the conversation between the blogger and readers.

I'd love to see an 'Ask Bonnie'. But you'd probably have to give up your day job!

Hugs

(PS: Yes, I know I already wished you a Happy Blogiversary. But, this is a belated wish (and post) from my "other" blog, SexBlog Welcome.)
