Love our Lurkers

Most of us start out as lurkers – i know i did!  And when i left my first comments, and got a response, when i got my first comments on my own blog, i was thrilled and anxious at the same time.  It was like having movie stars step into my home.  (And i’m still friends with those first bloggers i met!)

i love getting comments – i imagine all bloggers do.  So today, you, Gentle Reader, are invited to step out of reading mode and into commenting.  No pressure, of course.  Just a friendly invitation.

You can just say “hi.”  You can comment anonymously.  You can make up a name.  (Full disclosure:  “olivia” is not what i’m called at work.)

BDSM is not just about kinky sex.  BDSM is about connection.  So if you’re not connected somewhere with people who won’t judge you – in real life, or with your own blog, or by commenting on Other People’s Blogs – here’s your chance to step out and say a few words.  Let us begin to get to know you.

  1. I believe I am new here. So many wonderful blogs…so little time. 🙂 I found your site from Hermione and wanted to pop in to say hello and wish you a very happy LOL day!

  3. I visit regularly, and have shown my husband some of your stories and we have discussed them. I am not sure I have ever commented, though I have thought about it many times. I enjoy reading here very much, so thank you for that!

    • Hi, Willie,
      i love the idea of you and your husband talking about my stories. i know you a little bit from your comments on other people’s blogs too and always appreciate what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by!!


  4. Less a lurker than a, “damn, I wish she’d shut up for once!”…
    but I’m here to wish you a Happy LOL Day anyhow!
    (just, you know, without hugs) ;-p


  5. It’s my first visit… maybe because you added some tags like #bdsm. If you do, I’m won’t miss your post in my reader.
    I think it’s important to support the bdsmscene community!


  6. Hello Olivia, I’m new here after finding your name on Hermiones list. Hope you have a fun LOL day. will pop back again soon.

    Hugs Lindy


  7. I can’t really call myself a lurker, since this is the first time I’ve visited, but I’m adding you to my read list – what I’ve seen so far intrigues me. Have a great day!


  8. Hi Olivia…think I found you a long time ago and then lost you. Have now found you again through Hermione and have added you to my reading list so I don’t lose you again. 😉



  9. Lurkers = number of views – (number of likes + number of commenters)

    I’ve never really thought of them as lurkers. I like it. I’ll have to check out the rest of your site. Sounds interesting.
