Love Our Lurkers Day!

Love Our Lurkers 2009

Bonnie of My Bottom Smarts has organized another Love Our Lurkers Day and it looks to be a great one! If you are one of the silent readers who visit here and other blogs, this is the day we encourage you to step out of the shadows and leave a comment.

I know you’re out there, so do a gal a favor and say “Hi.” I would beg but I have to save all my begging for Dan, so I’ll go for the pity tactic. I have a terrible case of tendinitis so I’m typing this using just my left hand…and it’s taking forever! I’m dedicated I tell you! And if it weren’t for spell check, this post would read more like a lol cat wrote it. LOL (Sorry, I had to do it.)

Even if you don’t comment here, go visit Bonnie or any of the blogs Bonnie has listed on her Love Our Lurkers post and comment there. At least make the rounds and see what’s going on for this LOL day. It’ll be fun I promise!

Normally I would automatically offer up my bottom to be spanked in exchange for comments so I hate to disappoint (I’ve done this for the previous LOL Days I participated in after all), but I feel like playing a little game while we’re at it. I’m calling it the “Spank Bethie with Comments” game. What are the rules? We don’t need no stinking rules! But I guess I should tell you how to play or we’ll just run amok, won’t we?

Okay, here are a few guidelines. If you’ve been reading here, then I bet you know which toys are available in my toy box. If you’re new, you can always go back and see what I have. I promise, there are lots to choose from. With that in mind, if you want to get me a swat in exchange for your comment, tell me which toy you think it should be with and why. While you’re at it, tell me a little about yourself as well. I’d love to know more about the people who visit me here!

When I tally the numbers later, I’ll see which toy got the most votes and the total number of comments will determine the number of spanks. Since there are no rules you can vote more than once if you want to vote for a different toy. I’m doing that so you delurkers will get a chance to practice comment posting. It’s not that I’m greedy or anything like that. *wink*

If you’re not delurking and just want to show how much you lurve me…I’ll count those comments, too. Nope, I’m not greedy at all!

In case you need a suggestion…pretty rose paddle!

Leather Thorn rose paddle

*Note: If your comment goes into moderation, that is normal because of my comment security and I will approve your comment asap.*


  1. I don’t know where your toys are posted but I vote for the leather belt.

    Have fun!

  2. Hi, Sandy, thank you for the comment! I took the easy way out and didn’t list my toys. I thought there were too many to choose from but you have just proven me wrong because we don’t have a leather belt in the toy box! LOL We used to have a belt but it seems to have disappeared or maybe it’s been replaced by something else. I will substitute a vote for the leather strap if you don’t mind. 🙂

  3. Hi!

    I’m a regular visitor to your blog, and enjoy your posts. The LOLcat is the best! I almost went with one too.

    I vote belt.

    LOL day is so much fun!

  4. Has she told you all about her new favorite quirt?

    Comment by Dan — 10/13/2009 @ 9:37 am

  5. I am a lurker. I just am too lazy to comment. But I do love your blog and I read every post!

  6. Hi, Hermione! I’m slowly limping around the net with my one good typing hand but I’m having a good time, too. 🙂

    Honey, that’s not fair! 😆

    Comment by Bethie — 10/13/2009 @ 10:02 am

  7. Grace, thank you for dropping by with a comment! I’ve been lurking around your blog, too, so I’ll be by soon. 😀

  8. Hi Bethie,
    I enjoy reading your web site, especially the ones in whch you show pictures of the results of the session.

    My sugestion is for the nipple clamps and the breast whip; which I think you said that Dan loves.

    Have fun, and happy spanks to you.

  9. Hi there,

    Haven’t actually lurked on here in a while but I used to very regularly.

    Thanks a mil!!

  10. Hello Bethie

    Tell me did you ever get that defective light saber fixed?

    No? Well then I guess it’s lucky Santa found a home for it. Misfit toys need love, too.

    So the defective light saber gets my vote.


    Ms. Betty

  11. Todd, thank you for your feedback! I appreciate knowing what people like seeing here. 🙂

    Emma Jane, I’m so glad you commented! 😀

    Ms. Betty, you would remember the defective light saber! 😆

    Thank you all for your comments!

  12. Hi There, Happy Love Our Lurkers Day! I am a legitimate lurker. I read here all the time and I don’t think I have ever commented. Mea Culpa

    btw, I vote belt.

    Comment by CultivatedDiscipline — 10/13/2009 @ 2:17 pm

  13. Hi bethie,
    I’ve been reading your blog since I started my own blog a few years ago. I mostly lurk but I’ve left you a few comments also. I enjoy reading your blog a lot! 🙂

    Comment by padme amidala — 10/13/2009 @ 3:02 pm

  14. CultivatedDiscipline, hello and thank you for commenting! Another vote for the belt! 😀

    Padme, hi, it’s good to see you! Thank you for dropping by and for the kind words, hon. 🙂

  15. Hi Bethie,

    I have been a voyeur on this blog as well as Spanking Blog for at least a year or two now. I am a huge fan! I’m a very outgoing person in crowds…but alas in cyberspace I’m a bit of a chicken. Not sure why-I’m not as technologically savvy as many others in my generation (born in early 80’s).

    Hmmm….a little about me…well in a nutshell, I’m a social justice advocate, a feminist, a sexual health educator and a submissive spanko all rolled in to one. I live in Ottawa, ON, Canada…the land of many a stuffy conservative.

    I know I’m a day late, but if this comment has any currency then I would have to choose a swat with the holey paddle. It’s just so authentic looking.

    Peace out.

  16. Joanna, you’re not a day late at all, this party is still going! Besides, I don’t have no stinking rules. Well, at least not for this. LOL

    Thank you for commenting and letting me get to know you! I hope you come back often because I think we have a lot in common. 🙂


    Comment by Bethie — 10/13/2009 @ 6:17 pm

  17. Hi Bethie! I think maybe I comment on here every once in a while but otherwise mostly lurking! For quite a few years now actually! Do love your site though, and Dan’s too! Just reading a few of the other posts here, I’m also in my late 20s. Since most of my toys are of the bath brush, bread board, spatula variety I’m going to vote for your lovely Rose paddle, for sure! 🙂

    Comment by Jenni — 10/13/2009 @ 9:17 pm

  18. Hi, Jenni, I’m glad you dropped by! Thank you for your comment and your vote for the lovely Rose paddle. 🙂


    Comment by Bethie — 10/13/2009 @ 10:13 pm

  19. I vote for the leather belt as well! 🙂

    Comment by Marie — 10/14/2009 @ 6:43 am

  20. Hi, Marie, I’m glad you dropped by! I was a little confused by the name thing but I think I have sorted it out now. I appreciate the vote for leather – thank you!


    Comment by Bethie — 10/14/2009 @ 8:36 am

  21. Happy (if late) LOL day 🙂


    Comment by Spankedhortic — 10/14/2009 @ 8:59 am

  22. Hi Bethie,

    I hope you had a wonderful LOL Day. I really appreciate your help in making this our biggest and best celebration yet.

    As for that implement, I can tell you that Randy’s current favorite that curved handled wooden body brush. Let’s go with that one.


    Comment by Bonnie — 10/14/2009 @ 11:08 am

  23. Prefectdt, thank you! 🙂

    Bonnie, thank you for all the work you do organizing LOL Day! 🙂


    Comment by Bethie — 10/14/2009 @ 3:17 pm

  24. Hi, Bethie,
    I’ve sent a couple of emails to Dan, but never left a comment with either of you. I’m an old man married to a very vanilla wife, but I got in a few lights smacks during a back massage by calling it “Swedish massage”! As to your blog, I just wish you’d blog more often. I enjoy hearing about your escapades.

    Comment by Willy — 10/14/2009 @ 6:18 pm

  25. Hello, Willy, I’m so glad to meet you! “Swedish massage” huh? Nice! I appreciate your feedback about the blog. I’ve been thinking about how to liven this place up and blogging more is part of that. Thank you!


    Comment by Bethie — 10/14/2009 @ 8:43 pm

  26. Being a sadist and all I think I’ll vote for the holey paddle. Though if there was some way to see all the available options I might have considered something a little.. softer. 🙂

    Comment by Scott — 10/15/2009 @ 6:26 am

  27. Hello, Scott, and thank you for commenting! Hey, I put up a suggestion that was softer, you know. Maybe too soft? 😆

    Actually I wanted to put up a list of toys with pics, but only being able to use one hand (tendinitis) made me crazy and I had to keep it short. Luckily, I’m getting better! 🙂


    Comment by Bethie — 10/15/2009 @ 7:40 am

  28. bethie,
    I think it was in August that you mentioned nettles. What ever happened there?? Maybe I shouldn’t ask though.
    As I mentioned before, I’m one of the lurkers and really enjoy your site and your blog.

    Comment by todd — 10/15/2009 @ 10:02 am

  29. Hi, Todd, and thank you for your comments! The nettles are growing nicely despite my occasional glares. One of those plants shot right up! The others are a little slower so we’re waiting to see if we’ll get a usable crop before picking any stems to play with. These plants are a bit more robust than the seedlings we had earlier so I’m waiting with a mix of dread/excitement. I’ll keep you posted on nettle developments! 🙂


    Comment by Bethie — 10/15/2009 @ 10:49 am

  30. Hi Bethie,

    I lurk. One reason I lurk is because of this – here I am commenting 3 days after the conversation has been finished.

    Anyway, I hope you got the rose paddle. Definitely better than nettles, in my experience!


    Comment by Serenity Everton — 10/18/2009 @ 9:45 pm

  31. Hi, Serenity! Hey, it’s never too late to delurk. I lurk for the same reason as you. I rarely get in on an ongoing discussion because I’m always days behind on my blog reading. 🙂

    Thanks for dropping by!

    Comment by Bethie — 10/19/2009 @ 9:52 am

  32. I’ve been reading (and occasionally commenting) for years. I’ve even won one of your writing contests at the Spanking Den. 😀

    Comment by Danielle — 10/22/2009 @ 12:38 pm

  33. Hi, Danielle, and thank you for commenting! I hope you enjoyed your prize from the Den, I always loved those contests. I really need to try that again sometime. 😀
