Love Our Lurkers

We trudge along taking our photos and posting our stories and experiences on this blog week after week (mostly). So today is the day we acknowledge our readers—you, Fellow Kinkster. Started by Bonnie (Kinkster/Blogger, ret.) with torch passed to Hermione, this is the ninth LOL day.

I'm embarrassed to say I don't read blogs much. Just don't have time. I barely get onto FetLife. So just having regular readers (or photo-lookers) is a surprise to me. Black & Blue has been running two years now and our readership (or viewership?) has been astonishing to both Lizzie and myself.

I hope what we write and the experiences we share resonate with people. Certainly, we totally get that a great deal of our traffic is purely visual—people like to look at Lizzie's bottom and bits. But we write because we feel our shared perspective offers a touchpoint to people in one way or another.

Thanks to you, our readers, who come back week after week to check out what we have to say. You all make us feel quite humble. And from our spanking bench to yours, thanks for being a regular.
Over the two years Craig and I have been blogging together, I've enjoyed watching our stats grow. We can see that more and more people view our blog with every post. If you're here just to look, we appreciate your views.

Even more, of course, we appreciate the comments of our viewers. Craig and I make an effort to respond to every comment. Like so many things, Craig is better at responding than I am. But you can be certain that I read every comment on our blog.

Today, if you're lurking on our blog - looking at the pictures, reading our stories, enjoying the descriptions of our scenes - we invite you to leave a comment. We'd love to hear how you found us, what you enjoy, and what brings you back each week.
