MBS Spanko Brunch #147


As the darkness of winter approaches, this is an ideal time to recognize again the wonderful blessing of friends and family. Our topic for the week comes from Greenwoman and it fits this theme well.

I have been reading Paul's love story on Zille's blog. I asked him, "Why Zille?" Paul remarked that her blog seemed a perfect match because her topics and approach to spanking and power exchange were very compatible with his own.

Which blog, other than your own, would you select to host your romantic story?


If you would like to participate in our discussion, and I hope you will, just leave a comment below. Once everyone has had their say, I'll post an edited summary.

I don't know that my romantic story will ever be written. I don't know that I'll ever have a romantic story, period. The lady I loved passed away a little over 8 years ago. There's been no one since then, and possibly never will be.
If it were to be told somewhere, I suspect it would on Devlin O'Neill's Weblog. I regularly leave comments there, and certainly feel like one of the gang. It would probably be the most natural fit....

Greenwoman thanks for the question. To be honest I don't have an answer to the question...I am still a little shy of sharing too much information and don't know if I would ever share my love story for the whole world to see...but at the same time I so appreciate hearing other's stories and there are certainly a lot of wonderful people in blogland to share with. :-) I also wanted to comment to Paul that I just checked Zille's blog and truly enjoyed reading your beautiful love story. :-) Thanks for being so open to share. Best wishes, Terpsichore

Mina said...

Like Terpsichore I just checked Zille's blog and was thrilled at what I found. Paul's story is always one I have wanted to know.

Good question Greenwoman. I'm not sure and being a bit of control freak I would likely stay with my own. Possibly Strange Imagination though because I know Janice so well and would feel comfortable.

Hugs
Mina

I have to say Spanked Italian Gal's blog. http://spankeitaliangal.wordpress.com/

She and I seem to be of like mind. Our experiences, likes and dislikes seem to coincide.

I have always enjoyed her comments on our blog and love reading hers. I hope someday to actually meet in person.

Wow... tough question. There are lots of blogs that would be great spots to host our story. Probably would go with PK's blog (elisnewbeginnings.blogspot.com) though. She's already got Fantasy Friday, so she has the place for it.

Have to say your bloh would be a great option too!

:)

Spanky said...

I agree completely with Todd & Suzy. PK would definitely be my choice! I think her blog would be the best fit. Now if I just had a romantic story ...

Hermione said...

Bonnie, your blog would be the best fit for me. You very kindly allowed me to share some very special moments with your readers before I had a blog of my own. Our approach to spanking is basically similar to yours, although not quite as adventurous.
Hugs,
Hermione

Daisy said...

Hi, Bonnie!
Your blog, Zeldas Timeout, Brambleberry Blush or Cassies space.... IF I was ready to share....lol... and, obviously, if they would allow me to; but I am not sure, even if I wanted to, that I would have the cheek to ask any of you!
Hugs,xxx

Paul said...

Bonnie, I think that I must have communicated quite badly with Greenwoman on this one, while Zille's Master/Husband and I have a fair deal in common, I feel very strongly that my wife Mel and Zille would have been close friends had they co-existed in the same space-time.
The second and lesser reason is that CeeCi's blog is now friends only.
I would like my stories both fact and fiction to be available to a wider audience of all my friends.
I am fully aware that there are many of my friends blogs that would have been very suitable.
But for the above reasons and the fact that Zille pleaded so prettily, I acceded to her request, I really hope that none of my friends are upset.
Warm hugs,
Paul.

Until today, I hadn't any knowledge of Zille's richly crafted blog and just spent a glorious hour becoming acquainted with it. It seems an ideal "add" for your master list, Bonnie. And while I'm at it, why has updating been discontinued?
Thanks for everything!

i never thought about someone else's blog hosting "our story" -

IF i did have to select a blog it would be The Heron Clan - url http://www.theheronclan.blogspot.com/

i would pick swan to record our story for a number of reasons - she is about my age.. we have similar thoughts and similar belief system (at least about the life style) and because i greatly admire her straight forward honesty

Good morning Bonnie, Its really fun reading everyone's answers so far.

I think that each and every blog has a very unique personality. I think that a story sometimes just fits with the personality of the blog.

When Paul pointed me to his stories, I wondered why Zille's Blog, and he shared just a brief description with me...and when I read some of Zille's blog and thought of some of the tidbits he's left all over so many good blogs, including my own, I realized that his stories fit the personality of Zille's blog beautifully.

Paul its lovely to hear more of the reasons why you chose Zille's blog and I think they are terrific reasons all. I, for one, am not the least upset. Surely you know that any blogger would be honored to host your love story? You are so well respected and liked, but anyone who knows and loves you, would not be the least upset that you've chosen a blog that is a terrific match for your story. I'd love to have hosted your story, but truly, my blog is not about discipline, which is an essential part of what you shared with your wife. There are lots of lovely spanking blogs among our community, but few of them focus so much on the specific spanking topic of discipline. I think that makes it a truly good match!

Besides, none of the rest of us had the courage to plead pretty enough I guess. *grins slyly*

But, seriously, the reason I brought this up is that it got me thinking about a fun topic: Which blog would I want to host my romantic stories, if not my own? It was such a fun discussion with myself, it seemed a shame not to get others thinking of it and what a fun way to get people linking around to other blogs we all love?!

Ceeci isn't blogging publicly, but if she were, and I were to tell my story, I'd pick her blog too and likely for all the same reasons Paul would have picked it. I would pick Ceeci's blog too because, like others who have mentioned friendship making it feel safe to tell such personal and precious moments of the heart, I think that my story would be handled sweetly and with honor by Ceeci and by her readers...because that too is an important reason to share on a particular blog. Readers are a part of the story telling. Their interaction becomes a part of the experience with a story. I would want the readers to feel touched by what I so bravely shared. With this also, Paul made a good choice, because his story is being very well received by Zille's reader's...so this too would be a part of my decision process.

There's another blog that I find myself constantly thinking...'Yeah! Gee, she's saying exactly what I'd say. She sees things in relationship as I do.' Often Grey Lily even says it better and is more brave and specific about the details than I am when I write about loving my partner on my blog. I often hug such things to me like precious jewels. So her bravery in her own writing would likely draw me out to be more brave when I finally told my story...another factor in why I would choose a particular blog.

In any case, I really like Grey Lily's blog ( http://www.journeyintosubmission.com/ )a great deal...Its personality is a nice fit for any story I might ever share. If I didn't have my own blog.

Thanks for including my brunch question Bonnie. I'm avid to see what others have to say.

Janey said...

I don't yet have a romance to share, but if I did, and I could, I would choose to have it told over at persephone's obedience.

meg's blog is one of my favorites, and I love reading her stories unfold.

Mine would definitely go here, on yours, Bonnie. Here's where I first thought, "I've found people like us." Like you, my husband and I have been married over 20 years, but we're new to this journey, just this year, but as you write about Randy, I sometimes smile and think I hear my own husband's voice. I relate best to what spanking means to you in your relationship -- similar for us. Thanks for the space.

Maryann Sloan said...

Hi Bonnie,
Fun question. I would choose Constance's blog, my dabble in the middle end, because I want my love story to turn out as hot and as loving as hers! Go, Constance and Mr. C!

And I'm thrilled to know Paul finally published, I'll check it out right away. Go, Paul! Go all you wonderful spankos!
Maryann

I am enjoying reading Paul's story and wish to first thank him for sharing such a sweet and endearing tale. If I were to ever have the courage to share my Love story I would choose Grace's if she would be so kind. I feel I have a lot in common with her with regard to lifestyle, children, and humor. Second choice would be PK who has been a wonderful inspiration. Regardless I am thankful there are blogs out here to share our kink.
Wonderful question and can't wait to read the next installment of Paul and Mel's story.
