We Love Our Lurkers

Come out, come out, wherever you are! Today is the day that spanko bloggers everywhere urge their silent readers to leave a comment. If you are a regular reader of this blog, or even if you drop in occasionally, I would love to hear from you.  You don't have to reveal your identity - you may remain anonymous, or use a fictitious name.

If you have never left a comment before, this is your chance to step out of the shadows and make your presence known. What should you say? "Hello" is fine. You can tell me a bit about yourself, or you can ask me a question. It's up to you.

I will be displaying the names of all the blogs participating in Love Our Lurkers 9 here, so come back often - or refresh your browser (CTRL F5) - to see who else has joined the party. New additions will appear at the top of the list.

Pandora Blake said...

Hi Hermione! Wow, it's been too long since I left a comment on your wonderful blog. I can't believe LOL has been running for nine years already. The first time I got involved was year two, I think. And both our blogs are still going :) That's quite an impressive achievement, I think!

My post is up - thanks so much for hosting this year.

Kingspan said...

Hello, Hermione! Only an occasional poster, but I really like your blog. There's almost always something here to bring a smile to my face. Thanks!

Anastasia Vitsky said...

I am late to this party! Can't believe I almost missed it. So glad you continued the tradition, Hermione. Happy LOL Day!

morningstar said...

Hermione I have posted my LOL post at The Journey.

Hi Hermione: thanks for hosting the event. Hope you are spanked by Ron today for all your good work on behalf of the spanking community. Oh, this is actually a two day event, so you should be spanked both days.

Hi hermione!

Thanks for doing this. I've always lurked here, so I'm here saying Hi!!

Aimless Rambling said...

Thanks so much for hosting this great event. Thanks for all your help, always. Happy LOL Day.

Anonymous said...

Happy LOL Day Hermoine! And a big thank you for all you do for our little corner of blogland. :)

Unknown said...

Morning Hermione. (Do you know how hard it is for me to type an "i" before an "o" and how many times I've had to correct your name? "io" is not in my finger memory.)

Thanks for doing this. Your list of participants led me to several good blogs before I gave up when the boss (my conscience) sent me back to work. I've saved the list for future aimless ramblings.

One blog had some suggested questions that lurkers could answer, one of which might be appropriate for your question of the week: What is your favorite book (in this genre)? I'd love to see my fellow fans and potential friends' answers.

Hi Hermione...
I'm also saluting lurkers (I've been here a few a lurker..!) on my blog. It's a terrific day for waving at those who silently support our blogging efforts...thanks for making it real!


Dr. Ken said...

Hermione -- Happy LOL day! I'm only a bit of a lurker here, but I think that counts! And my blog, SPANKING MINNESOTA, is participating, as well. I'm looking forward to hearing from those silent readers!

Hermione Happy Lurkers Day. my wonderful Canadian spanking neighbor. I love your blog, especially "NAME THAT CAPTION.". Here is to you, and your husband, and may he keep your luscious and voluptuous naked rear end warm, forever more. THANKS AGAIN.

Misty said...

Glad to have found you, and thanks for doing this!

Hi Hermione!
We often call in to read the Friday Fail. Don't think we've ever commented here before, though.
Thanks for the laughs!

Zoe said...

Thanks so much for hosting this! You are the best.

Kaelah said...

Happy LOL Day, Hermione! Thank you very much for organising this year's LOL Day event. I check your blog regularly but rarely manage to comment these days.

*Bonnie* said...

Hi hermione. Love lol day, thanks for hosting. You're doing a fantastic job!


Used to love coming up with an idea for a LOL day post. Hope the event goes well.


A. Lurker said...

Hi Hermione,
Well, I am definitely not a lurker anymore! So many blogs have come and gone since the first time I ever spoke up here on a LOL Day of yore but I am glad you are still here. You feel like an old friend now! Have a great day!

Downunder Don said...

Oh wow,
So many blogs to visit and so little time. This is our special day when we get the chance to stop peeking around the corner and get out there in full view. Many thanks for hosting this great day

julie said...

Not sure I ever commented here, though you are on my blogroll Hermione.

Thanks for hosting, I am taking part - both in my present blog and the one I left behind a couple of months before, since my lurkers seem to remain there.

Hugs to you xx

PK said...

I'm here, as always! Thank you for continuing this special day for all of us. I have turned into a terrible lurker myself, but I do always read here.

Anonymous said...

I love you blogs and to think you are Canadian too!! I am a lurker but I will stay that way for a little bit longer, I am nervous of exposing anything on the internet. But thank you for your entertaining posts.

Jz said...

Thanks for taking this over!

Thank you for hosting and also for keeping the brunches going. Your Friday Fails posts always leave me laughing out loud.

alex reynolds said...

I've added an LOL day post this year! Thank you so much for hosting this event, and for your wonderful blog all year long. I'm a frequent reader but most admit that despite my love of comments myself, I usually fail to give them out. LOL day reminds me about that! So thank you!

Excellent work, Hermione, this is going to be a nice dinner.

Hi, Hermione - thanks for hosting! I've got my post up as well. :)


Unknown said...

Thanks so much for picking up the torch with LOL day, Hermione! I love stopping by nearly every day.

Pearl Necklace said...

Hermione, Your supportive comments when I first started blogging meant a great deal to me! It is because of bloggers like you that I was able to de-lurk and find MY voice.

Spanko's are a lovely bunch of people!

Unknown said...

Happy LOL day;) This is my first year as Blogger so this is my first. Thanks for adding my link! I've found this is a great way to find new blogs I hadn't known about too. As time permits its a lovely long list to check out ;)

Enzo said...

Hi Hermione!

Thanks for keeping the LOL Day flame going. My post went up late today, but it is up.

Enjoy your blog very much and appreciate the time you put into it. I visit at least once a week.

Best always,

Charlie said...

Thanks for hosting this blog. I stop by once and awhile.

Dana said...

Happy LOL Day! I love this time of the year. I get to meet so many new people.

georgek said...

Hi Hermione,

Thanks for all you do! It is great that we are the same age. Growing up in the 60's was quite an experience! Besides spanking, I imagine we might have a lot more interests in common.


OTKipling said...


WOW, there are a lot of blogs participating this year. Thank you for organizing it. My sheer lack of technical skill would mean it would take me hours to do it, so extra thanks.

Happy LOL day,
~OT Kipling

Misty said...

I forgot to say I'm participating too ;)

Unknown said...

Hi Hermione: just to let you know I posted the LOL yesterday, and I finished posting another one earlier today.
Hope you are having fun with all the comments and good wishes.
Thanks for doing such a great service to spankers and spankees

A. Lurker said...

Hi Again Hermione,
L9L is drawing to a close and I have had this rattling around in my head that I'd like to share. Hope you don't mind!

To the "Disappeared";

You vanished without a trace and I miss you. I remember the first time I delurked on your blog. I was shy and afraid you would not care about my presence but I was wrong. You welcomed me with kind words.

I started commenting regularly and you always responded. Eventually, through your blog, we established a cyber friendship and I looked forward to your next post. We may have even exchanged the odd private email!

Then one day the posts stopped and I never knew what happened. Did your life just get to busy to maintain the blog? Did you fear you had been "discovered"? Did that simple check up you had prove to be something more sinister?

In real life there would have been closure. I tried emailing but the blogger address no longer exists. I miss you and think about you occasionally! Perhaps there should be a day where those x-bloggers could pop-up and say "bye" and "I remember you, too"?

My thoughts are with you today and I hope all is well.

(Thanks Hermione!)

Just stepping out and catching up after busy last week...
Hello all from Houston.

Fondles said...

ok i'm very late. i haven't been in blogland in a while. things have been happening in real life that made me quit the cybersphere indefinitely.

I'm not sure i'm exactly back but i did feel an itch to come look sometime last week... i guess must have been my auto LOL day calendar in my head.

while i didn't get to take part this year, and really, i don't think many people have been to my place recently anyway since i haven't written in half a year, I do hope i'll have a bit more time to post and read in the coming months.

thanks for a wonderful successful LOLday event! i enjoyed visiting the blogs :)

lost in Utah said...

Hi Hermione,
Thanks for this post. I was reading I believe one of the blogs above, and closed out the tab on accident , and poof gone. The names of the people were Master and mouse. Can you please help me get the link back? I've googled to no avail.

Thank you,

Hermione said...

Hi lost,

I believe the blog you were reading was
