The Sixth Annual Love Our Lurkers Day


I know you're out there... Yes, you. I can't see you, but I find your footprints all over my web log. You're been dropping by this blog because you like reading about adult spanking.

Fear not, because we too are fascinated with spankings. Better still, today is your day! It's Love Our Lurkers Day. This is your opportunity to peek your head up just enough to say hello. Since you and good people like you constitute more than half of our readership, we bloggers are curious about you.

We're glad that you're here and don't mind you reading anything you like. But if you could write a short introductory comment, that would be simply fantastic. If you will, tell us your name (it doesn't have to be your REAL name), the part of the world where you live, and a little bit about your spanking interest.

This LOL Day 6 is a big thing. Just look at who all is participating!

Thank you, Bonnie, for the impact (pun intended) you've had on the Blogosphere: your clever and intimate entries, highlighting spankin' new spankin' blogs, and the lovely Love Our Lurkers Day!

As usual, I'm running behind like a pimp, but I joined in, too!

Mistress160 said...

Thank you again so much for organizing this Bonnie, you are just brilliant. Have a wonderful LOL Day!

cliveskink said...

LOL I love to lurk and be lurked too :) How come I have missed the last 5!! I think I have missed the 6th too, no time to post :(

Jamie said...

Hi Bonnie, discovered this fantastic on line world about 18 months ago and although I have recently de lurked on a few sites now, it occurred to me that I never have on your wonderful blog, which is remiss of me as I often visit.
My name is Jamie, I have a partner Grace, our spanking world is largely confined to the bedroom and has reignited our sex life. I’m so grateful to you and all the other bloggers (Especially PK) for helping us to accept who we are.

Beth said...

Happy LOL Day!

Thank you for your amazing blog!

Molly said...

This is such a brilliant idea, I am so glad I found out about this. I love my lurkers and I have told them so today!

Dee said...

Hey Bonnie :) I also really enjoy your blog. Being fairly new to blogland I don't think I ever said thanku or how much I appreciate the 'shout out' for when I started my own blog. Sincere apologies, my only excuse is I was fumbling my way around and not 100% sure how to go about things. So thanku lol :) I've been fortunate enough to feel I have made some friends here now and there input and welcome has been really appreciated and encouraging :)

jam said...

Hermione said...

Wow! The day is just beginning,and look at all the lurkers you have charmed into revealing themselves. The blogroll will swell with all the new spanking blogs coming out of the woodwork today.

This LOL day will be the best yet!

Hugs,
Hermione

Morning Bonnie :) sent my required email - but had to stop by and say Happy LOL day.......

I read more than I comment - love the Sunday brunches :)

Thanks so much for organising LOL day - what fun !!

Already looking like breaking all records !! It'll be a National Holiday soon !!

Uncle Nick said...

OK, my blog is in as well. A posting just went up.

Kaelah said...

Happy LOL Day, Bonnie, and thank you very much for all the effort which you put into this event. :-)

The first comment I ever wrote on Ludwig's Rohrstock-Palast was on LOL Day 2008. So, one could say that you are in a way partly responsible for the two of us having become mates! ;-)

And it seems that the first two commenters on this year's LOL post at the Rohrstock-Palast are already real delurkers who have never commented on our blog before! This could become really ouchy for my bottom, since we've promised to make a spanking clip, adding swats for each comment (six swats for every real delurker). I'm looking forward to more comments and hopefully more delurkers, nonetheless!

Season said...

This feels like a holiday! I should stay home from work so I can play around blogdom all day. Now, how do I explain this to my boss?

Happy LOL oh Queen of Spankdom!

Our Bottoms Burn said...

We have posted to all the Blogs we follow and now here. Time for breakfast. Have a great day.

Hi Bonnie.
You are a star in the spanking firmament.
There are so many blogs to visit on your list that it will take a day or so. But it will be time well spent.
Thanks

Walk On The Wild Side! said...

I have to thank Dick Dyke Dick for sharing this wonderful fun.

I am Tracy and I created my Walk on the Wild Side blog at http://i12seeu2.blogspot.com, so that I could openly express my thoughts, beliefs, and desires. Also to share things that I have found on the internet. My desire is to amuse, enlighten, and definitely arouse my readers.

Now I have to get busy and visit all these blogs.

Raven Red said...

Bonnie

Last year I sadly missed out on this day...way to frightened to even think about a blog posting for the LOL day. And this year, I am having an absolute blast!

Thank you, and happy LOL day for you!

Hugs

Gratifying !!!! Warms my cockles - smile

faerie said...

If I knew something more then thanks to say I would, But alas I don't. So thanks. LOL. In a little less then a year I have gone from a lurker to a blogger and it all started here for me.

Greenwoman said...

Bonny, thanks so much for all the hard work which goes into organizing LOL Day and all the hard work you put in to the purpose of this blog. It is an axis for community amongst bloggers and also amongst kinksters in general. You've done so much to educate and network for everyone. Thank you, thank you! Blessings and many more enjoyable years writing...

Nimue said...

Hi Bonnie,
Have been reading your blog for quite some time now, but I am awful at commenting on people's blogs, so thought I'd take this opportunity to say hi and thank you so much for organising another LOL day!! It just seems to be getting bigger and bigger each year, and I've just posted my own LOL post on my blog as well!

Anonymous said...

Just wanted to delurk a moment and say I love your blog. I have learned so much here and continue to learn more each day. Thank you.-Susan

Mija said...

Hi Bonnie! Whew, I almost missed it. So happy you're doing LOL Day. I've put up on http://www.eltercerojo.net and am about to put one up on http://www.punishmentbook.org.

LOL day always rocks. You are amazing!

sunnygirl said...

Happy LOL Day. Just a lurker dropping by to say hi and thank you. Can't send a message to all the bloggers but want them to know I enjoy their posts.

blacksilk said...

Afraid to say I'm not a lurker because I've not come across your site until now! But I've seen other bloggers join in with LOL day and really wanted to too!

Here's my post on the topic, I hope you don't mind adding me to your list!

http://blacksilk.wordpress.com/2011/11/10/love-our-lurkers/

Now I'm off to read some more of your posts :)

OldFashionGirl said...

Thanks Bonnie, I love your blog and all that you do for us bloggers. xoxo

Ludwig said...

Thank you, Bonnie, for once again organising LOL Day. It's becoming quite an institution (every spanko knows that six is an auspicious number), and the spanking blogosphere would be poorer without it.

Erica said...

Wow -- will you look at all these comments!

Love you, Bonnie; thank you so much for organizing LOL Day once again.

Alice said...

Hi I'm a regular lurker, I enjoy your posts, and it was LOL day last year that got me making my first comments on Dev and Poppy's blogs, so thank you for organising this

Daisychain said...

Helllo, Bonnie, Queen of Spankoland!
You are truly amazing! Thank you for all you do for this community. Love n hugs, and happy LOL day! xxxxxxxxxxx

A'marie said...

Always, always reading. :)

dd said...

I'm an almost lurker as I've commented a couple of times on your blog. I always check in on Sunday Brunch.It was LOL day last year which got me almost commenting and then I finally took the leap six weeks later over on B&T.

Jack and Jill said...

This is our first visit, so we're not lurkers, but we've added you to our blogroll and will be back. Our LOL post is up at http://frisky916cpl.blogspot.com/2011/11/lurker-appreciation-day.html

poured out said...

Thanks for doing this, Bonnie. I tend to fall back into lurking mode sometimes. This is such a great way to build community

I'll do a LOL post on my blog as well!

A. Lurker said...

Hi Bonnie,
Hope you are enjoying yourself on LOL day. This year I had an experience that made me realize just how special this community in general and your blog in particular is. Here is my story:
I was following a good weight loss plan but it was not one of the more common ones so there wasn’t much support out there for questions, plateaus, etc. Then I remembered the time I Googled the “S” word and stumbled on you and your amazing links to everyone out there. What could be simpler? I Googled the name of the diet and . . . nothing helpful!  No “Bonnie”s that were the hubs of any bloggers on the diet. No “Finding Sara”s who were trying the same thing and sharing honestly about their experiences so one could learn from them. There were the odd, disjointed enteries here and there but nothing organized. The experience made me think “Wow! What an amazing thing this spanking community really is” 
So, thank you, Bonnie for your time, energy and dedication in being the hub of this community. You are truly and greatly appreciated.
Take care,
R.

I'm a faithful lurker for a few years now and have never posted a comment anywhere. I like that you set this up. I didn't have the courage last year to participate. I'm from the Southern part of the US. I check your site daily too. Don't Stop!

Florida Dom said...

Bonnie: You must be proud of how popular LOL day has become. I know when I followed your advice and stopped lurking, it changed my life and led to me making new friends and starting a blog myself. I hope some of today's lurkers join our community and start making comments and maybe even start their own blogs.

Congrats again Bonnie.

Hi. This is my first visit to your blog, but I guarantee I will be doing plenty of lurking here from now on. I love a good spanking. :) I'm adding you to my blog roll. *Hugs*

I have "wood" and "Trouser Arousal" (trademark Chief sayings) on LOL day, sorry I'm late, I was away :)

Bonnie said...

I'd like to offer my thanks to all bloggers, readers, and (ex-)lurkers who were a part of our LOL Day 6 celebration. I plan to post the final totals on Monday, but I can tell you now that 2011 was our best year yet.

Serenity - I hope you had a wonderful LOL Day!

Abby - Great to have you with us!

Bree - I am delighted to host readers like you.

Em - It's a lot of work, but also a genuine pleasure.

Dioneo - I love a good tradition, especially one steeped in ritual. The mind wanders... :D

Jane - Hi! You actually answered my questions. That's so cool. I'm pleased to get the opportunity to talk with you. Some readers seem to know everything about me, but I struggle to understand the people for whom I'm writing. Thank you for participating!

CU - What a fantastic venue to introduce your new blog. Welcome! I'll get you linked as soon as I finish with LOL Day. In the meantime, best wishes with your new lifestyle and your new blog.

Prefectdt - Spiffy it is. Thanks for your loyal support all these years!

Mindy - Hi! I really do love lurkers. Thanks for joining in.

TG - You're very welcome!

Uncle Nick - Welcome aboard!

Kaelah> - I had no idea you and Ludwig met through LOL Day. That is so cool.

Also, I appreciate your sacrifice for the cause. :D

Season - I DID stay home from work. I told my boss I wanted a vacation day. Then I got up early and worked all day on LOL Day 6.

Bogey - That's a fine way to start the day. Thanks for your support!

FB - You did it just right!

DR - Thank you for joining in the fun.

DDD - Welcome to our LOL Day celebration. It's a pleasure to meet you.

Bonnie said...

Kendra - Welcome.

Pandora - Best wishes with the new blog. I'm sure it will be a success as are your other ventures.

Rebekah - You're very welcome. I hope you will be able to return to blogging someday. Your thoughts and experiences would be valuable to people walking this road. In any case, it's great to hear from you again and I wish you the best.

Stan - Thank you and welcome!

AHubbyof2SexualMinds - Welcome aboard!

New Subbie - I'm glad you could join us for LOL Day 6.

Padme - Hi! I think you've been here all six years too. A participatory spanking at your place sounds like great fun.

Abby - It's a pleasure to serve this wonderful community we have built.

-

Bonnie said...

RH - Cheers to you as well and thanks for be a part of our celebration.

TMT - I'm pleased you had fun with LOL Day.

Larken - I'm always happy to see you. "Love to lurk, laugh, and learn..." I might have to borrow that phrase to promote LOL Day 7. :D

Six - Thank you, dear fellow. I appreciate your continuing support.

Morgaine - Close enough! Welcome to MBS.

Michael - I love reading everyone's blog and getting a feel for who they are. We are all so different, and yet, remarkably similar.

WotWS - Welcome!

Faerie - Aw, that's wonderful. I celebrate your growth and discovery.

Greenwoman - That's very sweet. Thank you. This community means everything to me. I want to be able to help in whatever ways I can.

Nimue - It is bigger, and there's always room for you. Welcome back!

Bonnie said...

Susan - You are exactly the kind of reader we most want to hear from on LOL Day. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Please feel free to write me any time.

Mija - Thanks, and I'm grateful to have your excellent blogs along for the ride.

SG - Welcome! You're not just a lurker though. You now have a blog that everyone should visit.

Blacksilk - Close enough for LOL Day. Welcome!

OFG - Aw, thanks.

Ludwig - Thank you. Perhaps for next year we'll have to invent the phrase "seven of the best." However, that may not be good news for those of us on the receiving end!

Erica - Love you too, dear sister.

Alice - That's a great story. Welcome!

Daisy - If I'm a queen, why is my throne so darned uncomfortable. Wait, I know... :D

A'Marie - I'm glad to know you're still here. I wonder about you and your kinky little duckie sometimes.

DD - What matters is not where you delurk but that you found the courage to speak. It's much easier the second time.

Bonnie said...

J&J - That's great. Welcome!

Poured Out - I think that all of us, when we get busy, tend to drop back into lurking mode. One of the benefits of LOL Day is that it reminds us of the many interesting people and discussions around our community.

R - That's a great perspective. It's tremendous to be a part of a community where you know that people will support you when you need support and be honest with you when you need honesty. It's an honor and a pleasure to serve this group of friends.

Rodders - Yes, perhaps so!

Melinda - Hello, and welcome!

Ferns - I think that today's lurkers are tomorrow's commenters, and today's commenters are tomorrow's bloggers. When we support any portion of the community, we all grow stronger.

Vixen - Hi!

Marla - That's fantastic. I'm delighted to finally get the chance to speak with you. My blog is written for readers just like you. Whether silent or not, there will always be a welcome place for you at MBS.

Todd and Suzy - There you are! I was hoping you'd check in. LOL Day just wouldn't be the same without you.

Pink - This has been a fine year for Love Our Lurkers. Thank you for being a part of our success.

Bonnie said...

Sweets - The pleasure is mine.

FD - This has been another excellent year for LOL Day, thanks to the overwhelming participation by bloggers and readers. It's a triumph for our community.

Abel - Despite your late start, you appear to have harvested a fine group of commenters. Bravo!

RedRump - That is certainly my aim.

Dave - You're quite welcome.

Lisa - That's great. I welcome you.

Chief - As my husband reminds me, "These things do happen..."

Dr. Ken - Yes, our little spark has grown into a continuous flame.

Happy LOL Day, everyone, and thank you for making it a success!
