#873) Anniversary

One year ago today, this blog became live on-line. (It actually took me several days longer to get pages loaded.) This anniversary date causes me to reflect.

On the one hand, I’m so technologically inept, I really shouldn’t blog at all!

On the other hand, it has been mind-blowing for this stutterer to have such a vehicle to voice her perspectives.

I bridle under the restrictions that this platform imposes, the censorship that it places on my work, even as I rejoice at the feeling of liberation it has given me to express myself freely.

When I started writing here a year ago, I chaffed under the well-known dictates in our fetish to be “safe, sane, and consensual” in all dealings. Some of the acts I wanted to participate in could not be construed as sane. I question whether I am sane at all times. Over the course of this year, with the shared insights of people like Jillian Keenan and others, I’ve come to feel more aligned with the realization that, for me, this fetish is “innate, unchosen, and life-long.”

When I started this blog, most of my desires were unrequited. I spanked myself because I had just broken-up with a man, and there was no one to do the job. The same can be said about masturbation and my sex life. Over the course of this past year, I’ve come to know myself better, and with that knowledge, was in the right place to find someone who fulfills my wants and needs, someone who became the love of my life.

On the topic of self-discovery, I used to try to cater to a wide variety of tastes, so wrote and posted some stories that I was uncomfortable with, stories that were harsher and more punitive than I prefer. I’ve debated whether or not to go back and delete these written works. I’ve decided not to do that, but henceforth, I want to try to be true to my own self more.

It was been a year of growth and evolution, of risk and reward. I don’t know what the future holds. (I sometimes feel as though I know less and less every day.) But, I hope to continue blogging for a good deal longer into the future. I thank each of you who stop by and see something of interest; I sincerely thank those who have become faithful followers here, have become good friends on-line!

  1. Congratulations. Not only on your first Blogiversary, but on putting up more posts in one year than most bloggers manage in 5 or 6 years. I’m both impressed and struggling to keep up with you. I wish you many more happy years of kink and blogging.

  2. Happy Blogaversary, JM! I can’t believe it’s been only one year, judging by the crazy number of posts. Would you mind sharing links to more harsher and punitive ones, I would read them gladly. As you know, when it comes to stories I err on the side of more drama, umm, let’s call it that.

  3. Congratulations, JM! I remember when you started your blog. I considered suggesting that you consider pacing your posts so that readers wouldn’t miss those that are quickly obscured by the newer posts that quickly follow. I also wondered if you might run out of ideas as I eventually did.

    I decided that you had a plan and knew what you were doing. My intuition was correct. I continue to be amazed by your productivity and the variety of your content.

    Thank you for your continuing contributions!

    Best,
    Bonnie

    • Thank you so much, Bonnie!
      I’m laughing because I do NOT know what I’m doing, just flying by the seat of my pants, letting inspiration be my guide. But I’m having fun!
      Warmly,
      JM
