Okay, this first bit is just something I wanted to mention in passing. Even though you’re very quiet, we know there are a lot of you here and you come pretty often. Confession? There’s a stat counter here and so we know about 1200 of you a day land here. And some of you stay for quite a while (more than two hours) and come back daily to check in on the happenings. Go ahead, say something! we know it seems like we just enjoy talking to ourselves, but we really would love to hear your point of view on whatever. In my case at least, even if you think this is a bit (or a lot) freaky. We’re veterans of usenet… you’ll have a hard time offending us, and even if you do we’ll probably still answer you. Go on. You don’t even need to put a real email address (firstname.lastname@example.org will work).
So onto the changes. Smallest first. The links have been redone reflecting that more of us have scene-related sites and so do our partners. So there’s now a section called "Our Other Sites." We’ve added a link to Haron and Abel’s new blog, The Spanking Writers, and also one to sparkle’s husband’s site, Chris’ Firehouse. It’s really cool to get our partners’ perspectives, sometimes on the same subject or scene being discussed here.
Big change? We’ve added two new (well, new to us) authors to the PB. They’ll be posting their own introductions sometime in the next month or so (we’re not big on deadlines), but it’s fun to build the anticipation, right? So here’s an introduction to their introductions!
Dyke Grrl, who some us know from our days on soc.sexuality.spanking, has had her own blog about spanking and life, Breathing In & Breathing Out. If you want to know more about her, you can either go to her blog and read. Or wait with breathless anticipation here. In any case, we’re delighted she wanted to join us!
In the interest of diversity and also because she’s witty and a great writer, we’ve added Iris Bloom who we don’t know from our (mostly) beloved newsgroup. Iris first appeared here in our comments and it was only later that I (see I can almost never keep up the "we" voice for a whole post) realized I knew her partner from years ago adventures at some Shadow Lane parties. Iris was the author of the BDSM survey (Mija’s answers are here) that seems to have become a small meme. If you want to know more about Iris, well, she has no blog that I know of so you’re just going to have to wait until she shows herself. I know I’m excited!
And so there you are. Change is good.
