We here at Cherry Red headquarters love discovering new blogs, especially ones that don’t quite fit into the typical mold and offer both an intriguing voice and singular look.
Radspace is a fine example of a totally cool, insightful and elegantly-designed, text-only blog, written by lifelong spanking enthusiast Rad.
And one has to love the refreshingly clean, minimalist WordPress design theme Rad has chosen.
The Radspace blog is also unusual in that it has no photos or illustrations and it is updated daily(!) with short, thought-provoking essays on a truly wide range of topics.
Radspace typically has serious tone to it, yet it’s always a fascinating read, whether he’s blogging about the curiosities of spanking party etiquette or analyzing the intricate complexities of the spanking kink itself.

The Cherry Red Report chatted with Rad about his motivations and muse, and asked him for his thoughts — and advice.
So what sparked you to start a blog in the first place?
The long version or the short version? I’ve always written in some capacity since the time I was ten. If I had been a more focused person growing up, I probably would have made writing my profession but that did not happen and over the years I’ve written as a sort of hobby and mostly for myself. For a brief time in 2007, I started a blog under another name that I intermittently wrote.
In October of that year, I ended up with a severe case of writer’s block and depression which lasted through February of 2008. When I came out of it, I wanted to do something that was creative and on a regular basis that would become a writing exercise of sorts.
Eventually, I decided that doing another blog, this time under my better known scene name, was the way to go. I got some thoughts together after coming back from the FMS party in Florida and published my first article on June 11, 2008. For the record, that “other” blog is dead and buried, never to be seen again.
How do you find the inspiration, and time, to post daily with your thoughtful blogging commentary? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a blog updated daily.
I certainly have not seen many spanking or kinky blogs updated daily but that could just be because I’ve not run across them yet. I’m sure they are out there. As for inspiration: It has to be willpower and self-discipline otherwise I won’t do it.
