We LOL'd, they came!

What a wild weekend it was! So many visitors, so many kind comments, and a huge number of first-time commenters. A big thank you to all the bloggers who participated in this year's Love Our Lurkers extravaganza, and a special thanks to Ronnie for all her help. It was an excellent opportunity for readers to discover blogs they might otherwise not have known about.

I am especially grateful to the commenters who left suggestions and told me what they liked about my blog. I will be reinstating our Complete the Caption challenge, so if you spot a picture you think might be fun to caption, please send it to me.

All in all, it was a lot of fun. If you have any suggestions on how we can make next year's LOL even better, please let me know.
From Hermione's Heart

I would like to hear more about those Women who do spank. Myself included I talk about my wife spanking me but seldom hear from women who spank their husbands, boyfriends. I have learned from my wife that spankings and sex are not one. My erection is just that, either I masturbate or she will relieve me of it. So just asking if women would speak up. Jack

Thank you Hermione, for organizing and hosting the LOL event! We had a great time ... posting, reading, commenting and finding new blogs ... nj

I had a lot of fun going around that day, and got to meet two of my own lurkers. Thank you so much, you and Ronnie, for putting this together. :) Was a fun sense of community, like we all belonged to something bigger that day. I loved the anticipation and feeling of belonging. :)

My two cents worth, I have never understood what good LOL does. I have gone along with it every year. But, I don't see the benefit of it to anyone. No fun was had on OBB. And you went to two days this year without asking. I did not even get a notice of when it was going to be from you. Picked it up from Ronnie and Enzo. You and Bonnie might want to think about explaining what good it does. It sure does not get people to comment other than on LOL day.

Thanks again for hosting! It was a lot of fun!

Hermione said...

Jack - Thank you for the suggestion.

Bogey - LOL has been held for two days for the past few years - since 2014. I also posted twice before the big event, on November 1 and 8, announcing that it was coming and what to do.

As for what good it is, you have only to read the comments here to see how much people enjoy it, and the feeling of community that it inspires.

I guess I have a different definition of fun than you and the 11 commenters above. Celebrating those who don't contribute is not my cup of tea. As for notification, missed it. I think I may read your blog more than you do OBB, but not that much. I may be wrong, but I think notification was done by email back when.

Bogey, we discontinued email notification way back when Bonnie was still hosting LOL day, around the time her blogroll topped 500.
