I can’t believe it.
I usually don’t talk about myself too much on this spanking site, or typically pen very lengthy posts, but for some reason, here goes, when the inspiration strikes, go with it. . . .
This Adult consensual erotic spanking website, what just used to be a tiny ‘lil bloggy with 12 readers and barely any logical content, is celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary ! Zoinks! 🙂
But fair warning, spanky peeps, this is a long-ass post, so maybe take it in a little bit at a time or what-not. . .
Anyway, I am extremely grateful to all of you, all the readers over the years, all the friends I’ve met in this close-knit and hotly smouldering, bun-blazing OTK spanking scene, for your kindness, generosity, good humor and general epic awesomeness.
And I do LOVE and really appreciate when folks leave comments on what I hope are engaging and intriguing, visually appealing posts….
And I like to have fun with this fetish, with fun graphics and whatnot, asking spanking models silly questions at times, etc. I don’t try to take it all that seriously, actually.
BTW I do read all comments, though comments have slowed down recently for some reason — but those comments encourage me, to keep going, to not to run out of gas. Stay motivated and driven.
(On a side note, can you tell I do certainly love playing around with fun spanky graphix in my cherryred graphix lab) 🙂
Been working on some new, wicked cool features on the site.
I recently added a customized, cool “Contact Me” form plugin tool, at the top right of this website, to make it super e-z for folks to stay in touch, give me feedback, story ideas, etc. You can also subscribe via email, so you’ll get a brief email every time this site is updated. Also worked on speeding up the load-time of the site, which is important to site visitors and to Google. And digitally compressed over 15,000(!) images in this site’s massive archives, using a handy tool called “Smush It.”
Speaking of additions, I re-designed my entire menu at the top of this site, adding new links and such, from mainstream Adult films to live Cam models.
Added an archival Interview page, that simply lists a spank-load of Q&A’s I’ve done over the years.
Added a tribute to one of my faves, Rosaleen Young, of course, with a large RY thumbnail photo gallery, featuring tons of expandable imagery of this exquisite spanking legend.
Working on totally updating/adding/expanding my link-list. That’s a big time-suck.
And even just the other day, added a funky concept, a micro-donation tool called “Buy Me A Coffee,” powered by Ko-Fi with secure transactions by PayPal — to hopefully get a bit of financial support from this readership — as I’m thinking of buying my own dedicated server. That’s $$$. Anyway, every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated.
But thing is, it’s just not that easy keeping a website going for this long, as many of you know.
In fact, spent hours going through my link list the other day, and found a boatload of blogs that had not been updated in YEARS — or spanko websites that were dead links. 🙁 So I thinned out and re-organized my “blogroll.” It’s a tedious, time-consuming but important task for webmasters.
But blogger burnout is real. The struggle is real. And it’s easy to get overwhelmed.
Anyway, I’ve learned a ton on the fly over the past decade — and want to pay it forward.
So if there are folks out there who are perhaps newbies and might have questions about the fetish, itself, or:
…..how to connect with other sites and models; or topics like link-building, site promotion, website security, piracy, basic graphic design, using Favicons, domain names, hosting companies, using Gmail, SEO (search engine stuff), WordPress, essential WordPress plug-ins, WordPress security, Twitter, FetLife, etc. — I am more than happy to help as best as I can.
Just reach out and ask.
So anyway, this decade has produced 1000’s of story ideas, some good, some awful and many never seeing the light of day.
That’s 1000’s of posts, articles, scores of interviews, spanking model spotlights, pulse-pounding artwork, wicked hot “spankables,” implement updates, celebrity guest bloggers, video reviews, random ramblings, of course, and more — all with the goal of helping keep the world cherry red.
Because when you get right down to it, We are all spankos.
Spankos for life.
We are a tribe and I’ve learned to become happy and much more comfortable with having this fetish. I think it kicks a lot of other fetishes’ butts, gotta’ say.
But lemme’ rewind a bit:
Some brief cherry red history.
When I was first started out back in, what was it, 2006, it was a fluke–why not try this Continue reading “Help Me Party! This Website is Celebrating Its 10th Anniversary !”
