Crazy Eights


Eight years ago today, I closed my eyes and clicked the Publish button. When I posted here for the first time, I wasn't sure what would happen next. I never could have imagined what actually did happen.

I've learned a lot in eight years... about people, about spanking, and about myself. This place, this medium, is not about technology. It's about the connections among people that create a community. It's bigger than one blogger and smaller than the universe. It's about finding affection for friends unseen and exploring a world without boundaries. It's an enjoyable place to visit, even after all these years.

Thank you for accompanying me on this journey. Let's walk together a little while longer and see what's around the next bend.

Bonnie said...

Dear Friends - Thank you all for your kind words of congratulations. These past eight years have been great fun. Everything I've invested in our community has come back to me many times over.

Each new success story reinforces my belief in the power of regular people collaborating to achieve a common goal. In this case, that goal is to share the message that lots of happy, sane people employ consensual adult spanking to enhance our relationships and our lives. Those dreams that so many off us have harbored since childhood are legitimate and can be safely explored.

It's up to us to build a better future one day and one friend at a time.

I know I'm a little late to the party here, but I really wanted to say a big thank you for all that you do here Bonnie. I stumbled upon your blog which has led me to so many wonderful new friendships in this whole ttwd thing. I would have been lost and lonely if it weren't for you.

hugs,
Cali

Indy said...

Belated congratulations, Bonnie. Your blog was so instrumental in helping me make the decision to engage in spanking play in real life, and my life has become much richer for the experience. Thank you!

Enzo said...

I have to add another belated congratulations, but no less heartfelt. As evident by the comments on this post, and through the years, you have no doubt been instrumental in helping so many people along their individual journeys. Thank you.

Happy Belated 8 year Blogiversary Bonnie!!! Sorry about sliding in late here! :).
