Dear Bonnie,

It's been a joy and an honour to work alongside you all these years. I will miss my daily visits to MBS. You deserve a rest from all your hard work.

Do drop in for brunch when you have the chance. The coffee's always hot and the door is always open!

Warm hugs,
Hermione

Bonnie,

This blog, thanks to the time and energy you've put into it, has been a fun, safe and informative place for many of us finding our way on the spanko internet.

You'll be missed.
Many, many thanks.

Thanks Bonnie, for your service as a community maker. I'm sad to see you bring MBS to an end.

I read off and on and rarely commented, but MBS has always been the gold standard in the spanking blogosphere.

Best always to you and Randy.

Thank you very much! It was wonderful
Gracias!!

MRBILL said...

Bonnie,
Yours was one of the first spanking blogs I discovered. I continued to enjoy it over the years along with the many blogs I discovered through your tremendous list of links. I have had a long interest and activity in mf spanking and credit these links with helping me find my true joy in fm spanking, wife led marriage and chastity and denial.
Although your blog did not focus much on those activities, it remained as a friendly, intelligent place for many people to learn more and share their experiences. This helped us to learn that what we do and who we are is "okay".
Thank you for all you have done.
MrBill

I'm just now seeing that you've decided to stop blogging. You've been a wonderful asset to this community and I wish you well in all your endeavors. You will most certainly be missed! Thanks so much for all that you have done and for just being you! (((hugs)))

MrBBSpanker said...

I'm so sad to see you're leaving our blogging community.
I remember finding your wonderful blog about 2007ish.
I stopped by from time to time back then and I began coming here more and more often as the years progressed. Something I noticed early on that continued to grow, was your warm and caring demeanor. Also, I loved how you shared other bloggers new blogs.
All the numbers above are beyond impressive, but the one that jumps out the most to me was that you helped 2025 new bloggers by introducing them to all of us. (I'm proud to be 1 in that number)
Here's a number that would be impossible to calculate. How many bloggers have began are are gone since you first started in 2006!
Thank you so much for all you have done. You are truly a pioneer in this community.
Oh, and there's one more number to calculate.

There will only ever be... ONE Bonnie.

Florida Dom said...

Bonnie: The blogging world won't be the same without you. You've meant so much to so many members of this community and your support and starting LOL days literally changed my life. I just hope you don't delete the blog so we can still stop by from time to time because you list of blogs is such a great resource. Good luck in whatever you do and I hope someday you will have the itch to return.

Wife in Charge said...

Bonnie,

I hate to see you go I've really enjoyed your blog. I feel like I owe you so much for being the first one to advertise me as one of your new blogs a little over a year ago. My how time flies and it was you helping get the word out as well as others that made my blog take off overnight it seemed. I've been thinking of taking a break myself as it does take a lot of time to keep up with these blogs. A luxury that I seem to have less of now but that's a good thing.

Anyways thanks for all you've done for us over the years and know that you will be missed.

I will miss your wit and the graceful way you influenced the spanking blog community.

Emerging Lurker said...

Bonnie, after 9 months of lurking I am venturing forth with comments. Thank you so much for your warm, friendly blog. I read all your posts and they helped me become more comfortable with my spanko interests. Consequently, after 20 years of marriage my husband and I are having lots of new fun and adventures. Thank you for all the time you invested in creating a welcoming and generous community.

Bonnie, thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to post everything you did here -- it was immeasurably helpful in our earliest days...! C- and N-
