Who’d have thought that Lindsay Lohan would agree to recreate the iconic Spank Statement banner image in a new photoshoot, just in time for her favourite blog’s first anniversary?
Well alright, she was actually recreating Marilyn Monroe’s equally iconic The Last Sitting photoshoot for New York Magazine, but I thought it would make a nice birthday surprise.
It hardly seems a year since I wrote my first post. How times flies when you’re having fun; and as long as it stays fun, I’ll continue to do it. WordPress statistics don’t record unique visitors, but I’ve had over half a million page views!
Talking of which, Dave has written a flattering and fun piece about The Spank Statement on his “Get Your Blog On” feature, which you might like to have a look at, if you haven’t seen it already.
Thanks also to all those regular readers who’ve made comments – particularly Sir Vice Anglais and Luther, who spoke up for this blog in a thread on the Spanking Facts and Research Chat Forum recently.
As I write this, a whole horde of Spanking Blog readers are following a link here to read my Ian Fleming post, so I’d better thank Spankboss too. He is the boss after all.
When I started the blog, I thought it might appeal to one or two other quirky English spankos, but in fact I’ve had nothing but positive feedback from readers in general from all over the world.
Doing a blog about mainstream adult female spanking can be a frustrating and tantalising exercise. I wish I could feature more truly original and genuine over-the-knee action, rather than swats and threats or “what ifs” and “near misses.”
But that’s the nature of our interest, and if we’re honest it’s always the next spanking scene or picture that we’re most interested in anyway – the quest for which is never ending.
Thanks also to a certain Swedish gentleman for his information and friendship. My ambition for the second year of this blog is to get him to leave a comment.
How about starting with this post? I’d be most interested to learn the Swedish for Happy Birthday!
