New project - Help Wanted!

Recently Blogland lost an inspirational blogger and although I did not know him personally, I was often one of his "Lurkers". Bas often talked about the courage it takes for lurkers to "come out" and I couldn't agree more. So I have created a new project and I invite everyone who comes across this site to participate!

It's going to be.....Story-A-Month project!

Starting this August I am going to put a sentence under the title Sentence of the Month! You are invited to post the next sentence underneath the last person who posted.


Post: It was a dark and stormy night in Dreamsville.
Bob: Most of the residence were shut in for the evening with the exception of Danny.
Betty: She had mischief on her mind as she sneaked across town, armed with water balloons.
And so on. After the end of the month I will post the whole story (edited without names of course so it flows like a story) in a new post available on a newly formed Page across the top of the screen. I will keep the original still for everyone to see who participated in it as well as putting the names on the finished story.

There will have to be several rules (doesn't there always??) and I reserve the right to change them if need be. I'll start with the negatives first to get them out of the way:
1. No spanking scenes containing children ( I know it's obvious but still has to be said)
2. No criticisms of previous sentences
3. Only add one sentence at a time
4. Wait for someone else to post before adding another line (you can post as many times as you want as long as you follow this rule)

And some positive rules:
1. If you are presented with two possible sentences because two people posted at the same time, choose one and keep going!
2. Have fun with this!
3. Use your imagination!
4. Anonymous users are welcome too!
5. Add as many spanking scenes as possible!

If you have any suggestions for starting sentences please drop me a line! I will be keeping a list of potential starters and I'd love to add yours!

Keep safe everyone!

In Remembrance of Bas

This week Blogland said goodbye to a friend and fellow blogger. 

I never knew Bas personally, but as I begin reintroducing myself into this community his posts were always very raw and truthful and helped me overcome the feeling of shame that I still feel. He had a way of connecting to his readers which allow them to see his emotions, concerns, and opinions and, even if you did not agree with him, they never felt forced upon you.

He said something that resonated with me:

Blogland is different from everything I have ever seen.
People here care for each other and don’t expect anything back.
Here, I felt Agape love, the kind of love I thought, that could not exist.
Here, I told people who I have never met, that I love them. And meant every word of it.

This is a community more so than I think I realized in the past. We are a community based on a common interest, but there is so much more to this connection as is evident from the blog posts and comments surrounding this man. His wall is covered with comments and condolences from people, many of whom I'm sure he had never met in his real-life but mean every heartfelt word. 

Even as his time on this earth came to a close Bas was thinking of others, telling us to blog on and that lurkers are always welcomed, no matter how different they appear.

May you rest in peace Bas, and may we will take your message to heart. You said it best:

Please keep blogging, remember your joy when you first found Blogland.Keep the torch burning and give it new bloggers.
Please remember those in our Blogland family who suffer from illness. They need you.
Please remember my little Lisa.I love you.
