Love Our Lurkers VII

We bloggers love our lurkers, and if you are someone who reads but never comments, today is just for you! It's Love our Lurkers Day, instigated once again by our good friend Bonnie. I can't believe this is the seventh anniversary of this day of fun. Time sure flies!

Every day, hundreds of readers visit Hermione's Heart, yet only a small number of them leave a comment. I wish I could get to know each one of you a little better. If you have never left a comment before, why not do it now? You don't need a logon ID or a Blogger account; you can choose the anonymous option.

Everyone starts out as a lurker. It can take days, weeks or even months to feel comfortable enough to leave a comment on a blog. Sometimes it seems like the other people who leave comments are all friends who know each other and outsiders' comments aren't welcome. That's not the case here or on most blogs. I love to hear from newcomers, and you'll soon feel right at home.

Don't  know what to say? Hello is fine. If you like, you can say what country you live in, or what you most recently had to eat or drink. If you feel like talking about TTWD
(That is why you're here, isn't it?) then how long ago was your last spanking?

Thanks for stopping by! If you'd like to delurk some more, visit My Bottom Smarts to find out who else is participating in LOL day.

From Hermione's Heart

I've read your blog a few times Hermione. You write such great material!

Glad I came out of lurking mode :)

Happy LOL Day, Hermione! I lurk here far more than I comment, which I'm guessing was only once or twice. I enjoy your blog and hope I can soon remedy my silence.

My "about me" is over at Bonnie's. I'll spare you the novella I left at her place. It's wordy, but not much to get excited over. Lol! In response to your suggestions got what to comment here: I live in the USA and my darlin' D took us to dinner this evening at a local Mexican restaurant where I had the house special of spicy grilled steak and chicken. Yummy, yup!

Talk about ttwd?! Hush your mouth! Is THAT why I'm here? Good grief. I thought it was because everyone is so nice and funny, open and welcoming. Now you're telling me that not only do you believe I am here because I have a spanking kink, but I should TALK about it! Maybe later - I have more blogs to visit and delurk. Lol!

Also love your personal stories with Ron.

SNP said...

A top blog in our community and one that any lurker would be glad to visit often! Have a great day:)

Jane said...

Love reading! Don't comment much due to usual ipad use, it's a little harder to type. But always enjoy your creativity and love when you have the personal stories, especially since my husband also thinks I like spanking too much to use it as a punishment for anything!

Jacquie said...

Happy LOL Day, Hermione. I'm still in lurking mode in alot of areas right now as I catch up on some posts I missed over the past few months. Thank you for your blog.

Devlin O'Neill said...

Happy LOL Day, Hermione. I read a lot but comment on very few sites. Time restraints, kids in the kitchen, tend to dip in and out. Really appreciate all the blogs which make sense of TTWD.

Looks like your lurkers were lured out. :) Love your blog so much!

I could have sworn I commented here today. Oh well I've been very UN Wilma like on your blog and only commented once I think. So by my standards still very much a lurker. I aim to change that- Let's face it, winter will soon be upon us here..I'll have NOTHING but afraid. be very afraid!

I have visited many blogs of these kind and I have this fantasy about spanking. However I won't be experiencing it in quite some time since I am now 12 and my parents don't spank me. I hope I will have a loving partner someday who cares enough to spank me.
