Lurkers, Commenters and You

I have updated my blog to include an "about" tab.  At the end of it, I put this blurb.


       You may always ask questions or send me e-mail at 
       SirQsmlb@gmail.com.  


       You see, the conversation matters to me.  
       I have found friendship on the web.  
       I have found answers from other bloggers, 
       both prior to me blogging and after.  

       I have asked such mundane questions as...

       "what have you found to be the best method of bikini hair removal" 

       to kinky questions like... 

       "what's the best toy for ______" 

       to lifestyle questions like... 

       "how do you prepare your body for ______".  

       I have learned and grown as a person, as a submissive and as a wife              because of the give and take of blogland. 


       So please, feel free to join in my conversation!  


       I will always try to answer questions and comments.



So that is the thing.  I wanted to say thank you to all those who read.  
THANK YOU

I wanted to say thank you to those who have shared their lives and insights with me through blogs and emails.  I've enjoyed the shared experience.  I have learned a great deal and found affirmation along the way.
THANK YOU

I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to those who have taken the time to comment along the way.  That has been the biggest plus in blogging for me.  It's a relationship.  It's a conversation.  I know when I made my first comment, I himmed-and-hawwed for forever...it was such a huge deal.  It was a huge plunge to comment.  For those who have commented here...
THANK YOU

I will ALWAYS endeavor to respond and if for some strange chance I don't, it's because of an oversight.  I intend to respond to ALL comments as long as I am blogging.  

Blogging and blog reading has been a grand experience for me, one I hope to continue for a long time to come
(we'll see...this blog has been up for just shy of 10 months and that is 9 months longer than I have EVER journaled or written before!!!)

  1. Firstly im going to confess, i have been blogging for about 5 years ish and i still cant work or find out how to add tabs at the top lol

    I was so reluctant to blog at first, (my Master set my blog up) and i lurked for a long while...but all what you said..YES

    It is like a community here, no not like..it is, and its wanderful to be a part of.

    1. Tabs are called pages on the right hand menu. Not obvious is it?! Add a page and chose tab as the display option.
      Sorry to jump on Fiona's comments, but as she says, it's a community spirit :)

    2. Oh Tori, You are soooo right, it IS a community that is wonderful to be part of!! I just figured out the whole page/tab thing myself. Send me an email if you have any questions :)

      Thanks for being a part of mine!

      DF...I'm thrilled you jumped in...THANK YOU! Our community rocks!

      OK joey...we'll expect to see tabs at the top or side of your blog coming soon - right?

  3. I agree totally ... If it wasn't for blogland, both reading & writing, and the support I have found on here, I don't think I would have survived the past few months without going completely insane.

  4. Is it me, or have you changed your theme too? I see water everywhere!
    That first comment - for me writing it was both terrifying and cathartic.
    And I did it on your blog! So thank you for the welcome.
    hugs

    1. hehehe, nope, I changed my theme too. In for a penny, in for a pound =)

      I don't know why it was sooooooo hard for me to comment as well, but it REALLY was!

      I'm so thrilled and seriously honored that you commented here! Wow! You rock and I appreciate our conversations through our mutual blogs!

  6. fiona,

    For me, the best part of blogging is the community. I enjoy exchanging emails with blogger friends I have never met.

    Thank you so much for being so open and honest about the things you do, your ups and downs. I think of you as a very good friend, but also one with whom I can discuss my deepest and darkest secrets.

    Hug,
    joey

    1. I agree completely joey..the best part IS the community!!! I adore e-mailing or chatting online, it deepens the connection.

      Right back atcha!! I am really honored...REALLY honored to have you say that. I read your comment and had the largest grin on my face. I was in the car at the time and Sir asked what made me smile like that! Thank you joey. It has been nice to have someone who is so similar...a switch with a submissive soul...to talk to periodically! We seem somewhat unique in the field.

      Hugs my friend,
      fiona

  8. I really love getting comments too. My Master keeps reminding me that I write the blog for him, and the comments are just fringe benefits of publishing them on the web, but I still get almost comically excited when I open up the blog and there are new (non spam) comments.

    1. Oh those non-spam comments are soooo fabulous. I love responding to them too....knowing that it's a conversation...knowing that it's a two way street. I'm glad you publish your blog for us to read and comment on mine as well!

      hugs,

    Thanks for keeping your blog up and open!

    2. I made a google + I.D and it wouldn't accept baby girl so I made it P(power) Surren(surrender). I probably should've thought it through before I started blogging but I never claimed to be the smartest cookie! Lol
