All about my spankings and my love


It’s Love Our Lurkers Day


If you’ve ever thought about testing the waters and commenting on a blog but have been hesitant, this may be your day! Bonnie of My Bottom Smarts is having a Love Our Lurkers Day. She’s invited lots of other bloggers to participate and has listed them on her blog so if you’re interested, click on over and join the party.

Unfortunately, I’m in the middle of a big project this weekend (I should’ve already been out the door) or I’d join in. Believe me, I’d rather be here luring you lurkers out of the shadows.

I even had a plan that would ensure we’d all be happy. I was going to ask every lurker who was willing to come out and comment to vote on a toy I’ve blogged about. Every lurker would count as one swat and the toy with the most votes would be the one Dan would use. It would’ve been so much fun! I’m desperate enough to go ahead with it, too.

But unluckily, I’m not going to have time to approve every comment and give y’all a proper delurking greeting. So unless you don’t mind your that your comment may be hidden in moderation for several days until I have time to sit down at my computer again, and then wait some more for me to tally the vote, this might not be the best plan.

But if you like the secret voting system, by all means, delurk and help give me a spanking. Goodness knows I need one! I should be over this cough by then, too. I’ll even keep the voting open for a whole week of delurking! Yay!

Btw, ff you’ve already had a comment published, your comment will appear immediately. I might even give you a vote in what may later be called, Spanking Vote ’06, if you encourage the lurkers.

  3. Bethie,

    Thank you so much for supporting our delurk day. Even though you cannot participate, your recommendation is greatly valued.

    I love the voting idea!

    I hope you both have (had?) a wonderful weekend

  4. Never posted here before. Love your site. Want to assist in this spanking quest. Fully understand the NEED. Been there, done that, bought the chocolate bar! Anyway, keep up the great work!

  5. I’ve been reading quietly for quite some time – I love hearing about the straps and the wooden spoon shopping!

  6. what implement would that be? Count me in for ten. *g*

    this lurking is really a pain
    got so much to say on this vane
    she’s really a brat
    whose bottom should splatt
    and even be striped with a cane

    😉 enjoy your project.

  7. Hello bethie,
    I am a lurker on your blog and comment sometimes. I know I should come out of the shadows more. 🙂 I love your blog.

  8. Bethie,

    Hey! Wanted to say hi on delurking day and say what a great blog you have! Keep up the good work!

  9. Hi Bethie!

    I’ve commented often on your blog, so I don’t know if I count as a lurker or not! I don’t have a blog myself, so I’ll count myself as one! 🙂 Personally I’d pick the dogging bat if you have one! If not, you’ll have to hit your nearest farm store and try one out! It is one of my favorites.. next to the hickory slapper that is 😉

    Hope your cold is better really quickly!

    Take care!

  10. Hi Bethie,

    I’m a long-time lurker. So, here I am to thank you for all the traffic you and Dan send my way 🙂 Take care, Aunty.

  11. Well, I reckon I’ve left about ten of these already this morning. Serves me right for promising myself I’d comment on everyone’s LOL day posts in repentance for being a day late!

    Your blog was one of the first spanking sites I found and I’ve been a regular reader for ages now, though I haven’t commented much. Always love your stuff, and the pics you find are exquisite. Can’t beat a bit of Bettie…

  12. Bethie, I am amazed that I haven’t been on your site before. I came here last night because you gave me a link, and I went through your blog fast to see what it is all about.

    Today I am back. I love your writing. I love your lifestyle. I love your views on spanking. Trust me, now that I’ve found you, I’ll be back quite often! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Kay – no lurker. 🙂

  13. Well, I’m not really a lurker, but I wanted to say hi!



    Comment by AngelBrat — 11/4/2006 @ 9:07 pm

  14. Thought I’d delurk and say hello 🙂

  15. Bethie (and Dan *big grin*),

    Remember that funny-looking thing sticking out of your stocking for Christmas… you know, the clear onw with the really cool handle that you thought might have belonged in a Star Wars movie… my vote is for that little creature… but I REALLY wanna see pics!

    I don’t get by here often enough but I do comment whenever I can and I LOVE both your blog and your darling hubby’s!

    Hugs and strokes and purrs and pillows,

  16. Spoon, thanks, I will! It’s good to see you again. 🙂

    Am, I’m going for it so Spank Vote ’06 is official now. Please vote at your convenience! 🙂

    Bonnie, thanks for getting the party started! I’m sorry I couldn’t be more of a participant. Everyone seemed to have a great time! 🙂

    Sexy Sadie, thank you for delurking and leaving such a nice comment, I appreciate your support in my quest! I take it you’re a fellow chocoholic? 😉

    FlinchFlower, thank you for the kind words! Spanking and shopping, two great things that go great together! 😆

    P, thanks for the fun poem, but ten votes? Ummm I think that’ll be counted as ten votes for the pretty rose paddle. 😆

    Padme, you’re not a lurker, I’m a lurker on your blog. Sometimes I come by just for the music. 🙂 Thank you for commenting, I appreciate you!

    Katie, thank you, you’re always so sweet! *Hugs*

    Carye, I think we have a dogging bat, but I’m not sure what we did with it…that’s what happens when you have too many toys! LOL I hope you can find a suitable replacement toy to vote for in the next post. 😉

    Aunty, thank you! You don’t have to thank us, we both enjoy your blog. I love all the good clips you share. 🙂

    Master Fitz, I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the blog and thank you for commenting! You’ve been busy. I’m glad you enjoy the pics of Bettie, she’s my favorite! 🙂

    Kay, thank you for the compliments! I’m really enjoying your blog, too. I’m glad Dan found you! 🙂

    Tracy, hi! I’m glad you came by. *Hugs*

    Kimmie, hello and thank you for delurking! 🙂

    Tiggr, okay, that’s one vote for the faulty light saber thingie. Dan says it’s an acrylic cane but I still think it just needs batteries. 😉
