Generally I am full of ideas for posts. I enjoy sharing what’s happening in my life and what I think about various aspects of our kinks. But today I have no good ideas and I am starting to wonder how many people follow us on a daily basis. A lot of people read this blog. Our numbers are in the top of similar blogs. I can’t complain at all about that. Search engines rank us in the top ten listings for relevant search terms. All is good, right? Maybe objectively it is, but I miss the two-way conversations that make writing so interesting. For some reason we just don’t attract many comments. Maybe we aren’t controversial enough. Perhaps we just don’t resonate well with our readers. It could also be that nothing is wrong and people like to read here and then go off and do something else. I don’t know. I wish I did.
Friday night, as she wrote in her post yesterday, Mrs. Lion gave me an orgasm. It was, as always, excellent. For the record it was a handjob with lots of edging first. I was bucking like a bronco by the time she finally let me come. Saturday was spent blowing and mulching leaves. The rain stayed away all day and gave us a chance to dig ourselves out from under the fall mess. We spent a little time watching a college football game. Two teams we could care less about were playing. It was still fun to watch. Dinner was at a nice restaurant. Mrs. Lion got a gift card for it and I have a birthday credit from their rewards club. An almost free dinner; what a nice gift for us! Today I am going to smoke a turkey. Mrs. Lion said that she didn’t think they made rolling paper that big (groan).
I’ve been thinking that maybe we shouldn’t be writing posts every day. How many people would care if they came less regularly? I decided on this pattern based on something I used to like a lot. When we lived on the East Coast, I commuted to the city by train. The ride was about an hour each way. I would read The Wall Street Journal or The New York Times while on the train. I loved reading the regular features and looked forward to that chance to catch up on the news. When we started this blog, my idea was to offer the same kind of experience to our readers. We would post at fixed times every day so people could include is in their daily lives. I’m not sure it worked out that way. Do you treat our blog as part of your daily routine? Is that even a reasonable expectation?
Our daily posts have been useful for Mrs. Lion and I. We frequently communicate through the blog. We often tell each other things here instead of in email or in person. I, at least, have come to value reading how she feels about what we have done and to get a preview of what may be in store for me. In that sense, the Journal is very useful to us and our marriage. Maybe it’s because of the return of wet, cool weather that I am not feeling very happy. Are we part of your life? Would it matter very much if we wrote less often? Please take a minute and let us know.
