I don’t usually mark the passing of spanking blogs here, in large part because most of them die not with a bang but with a series of whimpers: they slow, they lag, they languish, they become stale, and then one day when a chance link takes you to a dead site, you find it’s gone “404 Not Found” and another old-faithful spanking link destination is just a memory.
The Spanking Writers blog: 2006-2014
And so, all good things come to an end.
Every other day, rain or shine, for nearly nine years: personally writing some 1,900 posts in the process. Queuing them up; editing and tinkering with them; moderating lovely comments; dealing with the occasional troll. I’d guess, more original, free ‘literary spanking erotica’ than just about any other non-professional writer out there.
But life moves on, real-world responsibilities (including the demands of running an ever-growing business) consume more and more of my time, and the blog has started to feel like a struggle. Although I’d always aimed to reach the ten-year milestone, I’ve been finding it ever-harder to summon up the energy and creativity needed to maintain the routine.
