Various thanks

In no particular order:

1. Thanks to everyone who participated in Bonnie's Love Our Lurker Day #7, and especially to those who came by here and said hello. I appreciate you all, both familiar commenters and my new ones. Without readers and commenters, we all might as well be keeping an old-fashioned paper journal that we stick in a drawer after writing.

2. I'd like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Jillian Keenan. Her name may not ring a bell, but if you've been online at all since Friday, you've no doubt read (or heard about) her brilliant article in the New York Times online about "coming out" as a spanko to a loved one, effectively outing herself to all her readers. She is on Twitter (@jilliankeenan), and on Friday, several of us (including me) tweeted to her to say thank you for her pitch-perfect representation of who we are. She retweeted us all, and wrote a response to each individual. Class act! When I first looked her up on Friday, I noticed she had 70 followers. As of tonight, she's up to 185. I hope she gets many more!

If by some chance you haven't read it yet, please check it out here. In my not-so-humble opinion, Ms. Keenan has done more to represent our community in a single article than you-know-who did with that ridiculous trilogy. The article also appeared in the paper version of the NY Times today.

3. Finally, to all our military veterans, thank you for your service to us and to our country. We honor you today.

No blog tomorrow evening, as Mr. D is coming by on Tuesday instead. So please look for my weekly session blog on Tuesday night. :-)

Hope everyone had a nice weekend.


  1. A happy belated LOL day to you, Erica! I can't wait until Tuesday's report... !


  2. Yes, that was a wonderful and brave article in NYT. She deserves a lot of followers indeed, thoogh ot necessarily all of a particular kind. ;-)

  3. It was a good article. thanks for mentioning it. I posted a notice of it on my blog, too.

  4. Erica, since I am both, a holocaust survivor, and a military veteran, I salute you, for mentioning the importance of Veteran's Day. I have much to be thankful for. XXX Luv ya.

  5. I am very thankful for those in uniform and those retired from the military. I know several guys who have served and also won medals for their service. Thanks to all of them who serve and have served!

    I read the article Jillian Keenan wrote and that took a lot of courage. Thank you, Jillian!

  6. SC -- I'm rather looking forward to tomorrow myself. ;-)

    MrJ -- I wish her all good things! She really took a risk.

    Mick -- I think she's taken her place in my list of heroes.

    Six -- wow. That's a lot to survive. Bless you.

    Bobbie Jo -- I wish they didn't have to suffer so, afterward. :-( PTSD is a terrible thing.

  7. Thank you Erica for teaching so many bloggers to answer each comment. You rock.


  8. joey -- that's a big thing with me! But I can't take credit for it; I learned it from Bonnie when I first started. :-)

  9. Hi Erica -- Thank's for sharing the article about Jillian.I read it and thought it was AWESOME,she has lot's of courage to do that cause for some people it's not easy.I have a lot of respect for our Veteran's they are true heroe's :-)I can't wait to read about you and Mr.D.Much Love and hug's from naughty girl Jade

  10. Jade -- what's even cooler is that her boyfriend was OK with it; he was outed too, after all. Great guy, huh?

  11. She wrote a wonderful article. It shows that a spanking fetish can be "normal" and not scary twisted stuff. You can tell she's definitely one of us in how she describes her lifelong feelings.

  12. Well done and nice post. Great article.

    Enjoy your visit and hope for me we see a nice well spanked pantied bottom, yours of course is just beautiful.

  13. Lea -- very much so. I tweeted to her that she spoke for legions of us.

    Ron -- will be blogging about my visit in a bit. :-)
