In no particular order:
1. Thanks to everyone who participated in Bonnie’s Love Our Lurker Day #7, and especially to those who came by here and said hello. I appreciate you all, both familiar commenters and my new ones. Without readers and commenters, we all might as well be keeping an old-fashioned paper journal that we stick in a drawer after writing.
2. I’d like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Jillian Keenan. Her name may not ring a bell, but if you’ve been online at all since Friday, you’ve no doubt read (or heard about) her brilliant article in the New York Times online about “coming out” as a spanko to a loved one, effectively outing herself to all her readers. She is on Twitter (@jilliankeenan), and on Friday, several of us (including me) tweeted to her to say thank you for her pitch-perfect representation of who we are. She retweeted us all, and wrote a response to each individual. Class act! When I first looked her up on Friday, I noticed she had 70 followers. As of tonight, she’s up to 185. I hope she gets many more!
If by some chance you haven’t read it yet, please check it out here. In my not-so-humble opinion, Ms. Keenan has done more to represent our community in a single article than you-know-who did with that ridiculous trilogy. The article also appeared in the paper version of the NY Times today.
3. Finally, to all our military veterans, thank you for your service to us and to our country. We honor you today.
No blog tomorrow evening, as Mr. D is coming by on Tuesday instead. So please look for my weekly session blog on Tuesday night. 🙂
Hope everyone had a nice weekend.
