Love Our Lurkers

Yay!!!!! Today is Love our Lurkers Day.

I'm so happy to celebrate this day. Like so many I started out as a lurker. I loved reading about everyones adventures. I fantasized about a D/s lifestyle and wanted it for myself. But, I was afraid. I was afraid to comment because that little white box intimidated me. I was afraid I wouldn't fit in, or I would say something stupid. It seemed liked eaves dropping and I was afraid to reveal myself. Yet, I still identified with so many of the submissive, spanko women in this community.

                                                                                

Eventually I found the courage to start commenting. Guess what? It didn't hurt a bit, no one criticized or belittled me. In fact I was welcomed and encouraged. Shortly after that I started my own blog, my own little corner in this lovely community. People started to read, and leave me comments, that's when I learned how accepting and supportive this community is. It soon felt like home to me.

Over the past year that I've been here I have made so many friends that it is hard to remember that I once found it intimidating to comment. So, if you are reading here and you've never left a comment, let me be the encouraging push you might need.

If you want, just say hello and let me know you were here. I don't bite, unless asked, and I won't belittle or discourage anything you might want to share. As long as you are respectful in the manner you leave the comment, even opposing comments are appreciated. Sometimes I need that kick in the butt to get over myself already. If you're the shy sort, but still want to chat, you can always send me an email. I list my email address on the top left of the blog and I assure you, I would never share with anyone without the authors permission.


I also list quite few blogs I enjoy on my blog roll. Maybe you've taken a peak and even stopped in to visit with some of my friends. If you haven't, let me encourage you to do so, they are wonderful folks. Feel free to let them now faerie sent you.

  1. You don't bite, unless asked?!! Lol!

    Hi, faerie! It's been awhile since I've been here. My phone doesn't like to play nicely with your blog, so it's difficult to read and comment, but I really enjoy reading when I can. I'm already experiencing the lock up and stutter effect, so cutting this short. :(

    Happy LOL Day!

    1. Hi Irishey, I had a guy ask me to bite him once. I did it, but I didn't like it much, lol. Sorry your phone and my blog don't play well together, maybe a spanking would help? Heeheehee :)

  14. Hello! Just stopping by to say Hi and hope all is well. I have been a devoted lurker of yours for about 8 months. You are so right about this little white box, who knew I could be so intimidated by it! Technology can sometimes intimidates me, makes me feel old and stupid! I am certainly not either. Well, not stupid anyway, just mature and uninformed maybe! Through your wonderfull blog I have found a few others where I regularly lurk but this is my first attempt at a comment. There are so many times when a post of yours has connected with me and I have desperately wanted to say something but have not had the courage for all the reasons you list. Hopefully today will get me to come out of my shell. I may even email you my thoughts from those posts if I can remember them (it's an age thing). Thank you for a wonderfull, beautifully written blog. Your courage and shining spirit flow through your words in good times and bad. Lots of lurking love to you! Mimi. Xxx

    1. Hi Mimi, I'm so happy you delurked. Didn't hurt a bit, did it? Can I steal the mature and uninformed line? It so fits me, lol. Feel free to email me anytime, about anything. Since you've lurked here for awhile you must know I pretty much lay it all on the line :)

  26. Hi faerie! I've been MIA because I haven't been well. I've been gone for so long I think I qualify as a lurker again. Wanted to say hi and tell you I really enjoy your blog.
    I'm really surprised at how many people have said they were afraid to make a comment. I didn't know you were suppose to be a nervous wreck. I guess it's because I never pass up the opportunity to give my opinion. Lol.

  29. Hello Faerie, I missed LOL day d/t issues w/google, then my husband became impatient w/ me spending too much time on the computer.I've been lurking for several months now and I just love your blog. Perhaps next time I stop by I;ll have my issues w/ google straightened out and I won't have to be anonymous.

    1. Hi anon, I think I know who it is, but I do wish you had left a name. I can totally sympathize with computer issues. After a long day at work I was looking forward to making some LOL day visits. Instead my computer crashed and I had to use Musicman's just to answer comments. Thank goodness he's a bit more tech savvy then I am, he fixed it for me and I'm ready to roll again :)
