Love Our Lurkers VIII

For the eighth year running, we spanking bloggers invite all our silent readers to come out of the shadows and leave a comment. Thanks to Bonnie at My Bottom Smarts, the spanko community has united in its efforts to encourage our shy lurkers to speak up.

All blogs have more visitors than commenters. Each and every one of us started out as a silent reader. We know you're out there, reading and enjoying, and maybe wishing you could be part of the fun. Today is your chance to take the plunge and leave a comment. You may remain anonymous if you wish, or give yourself a wacky screen name.

What should you say? "Hello" is fine. But here's an idea. I would welcome any and all suggestions on how to improve this blog. What features do you like best? Which ones do you like least? What would you like to see more (or less) of? What can I do to improve Hermione's Heart?

Don't be shy. No one's going to spank you (unless you want them to!)

Be sure to visit My Bottom Smarts to see who else is participating today.

From Hermione's Heart

Anastasia Vitsky said...

Not a lurker here either. The crazy things you find online always crack me up.

My favorite comment from you was that you were happy to work as a house elf with the blogroll for Bonnie. :)

Have a good one! I like the cat pic. :)

A very happy LOL Day to you, Hermione. I stop by pretty often but rarely say hello - shame on me! Cute kitties, too, and a lovely way to illustrate the theme. :)

Unknown said...

Hi Hermione,

I saw your comment on my site and it's the same for me. I don't think I've once commented but am guilty of lurking. I promise to speak up going forward!

Happy LOL Day,



Michael said...

Happy LOL Day Hermione! Hope your LOL Day includes a red bum.

Awedbymywoman said...

Happy LOL Day Hermione! Your posts are always quite varied and there's continuing stories, constant themes like Friday fails, filling in caption pictures and even spanking experiences of your own. No one would ever accuse this blog of being boring!

Michael M said...

Not really a lurker but I do often stop by without commenting. Happy days.

Terpsichore said...

Happy LOL day, to one of the first blogs I ever started reading and commenting on! :-) Hugs

Hi! I just found your blog today! I plan to be a lurker at times and commenter other times... Happy LOL Day!

A. Lurker said...

Hi Hermione,
Wow! Another LOL Day! I remember lurking on your blog, afraid to be seen and now we chat quite regularly. I always enjoy dropping by to see what you are up to.

So many bloggers have fallen by the wayside over the years so it's good to know you are still here.

Happy LOL Day!

Happy LOL Day! I would probably still be a lurker if it wasn't for blogs like yours. I had to comment and then I wasn't a lurker anymore. Then there were the questions I had. Pretty soon I was blogging

Thank you to my Canadian spanking friend Hermione. It has always been a pleasure all these years to visit your fine 'spanko', blog. Especially when its 'caption time'. Best wishes to you and your hubby forever more.
