Good morning lovelies,
Well it’s been one hell of a week, but I woke up this morning to discover that Ten Shades & Me reached 52 subscribers overnight! I’m over the moon and so happy that hours of hard work have paid off, so thankyou, thankyou from the bottom of my heart – thankyou!
This week has been a bit of a challenge for me. On Tuesday, I lost a fellow blogger, who I had once considered to be a good friend, following my seemingly controversial post on Greta Thunberg. I realise not everyone has the same opinion of her but it did sting to find that someone who I had once considered a friend had been and lambasted me on her blog for disabling comments on what was a matter of personal opinion. Nevermind, I suppose such is life in the blogosphere.
The important thing was, I knew that with a bit of extra hard work and dedication, I could turn my losses into gains. You guys seem to really love some of the dishes I turf out of my kitchen and I have made a mental note that a cookbook would not go amiss on my blog 😉
Anyway, I have been a naughty girl, and I have been keeping a naughty little secret. Do you forgive me?
Monday night, I came up with a bit of fun.
“Wouldn’t it be ironic,” I started, a wolfish smile spreading across my face, “if I reached fifty subscribers on a blog that was loosely named after Fifty Shades of Grey, in time for Kinky Fuckery Friday?”
Up until that point, Kinky Fuckery Friday had been cancelled. We head for Cornwall on Saturday and there is still a lot to do to be ready to go.
My Wolfie laughed.
“We should celebrate” I said, watching his reaction.
“What were you thinking?” he asked, regarding me.
“Well,” I continued, “wouldn’t it be quite the celebration for a blog on BDSM if we played?”, I ran my finger across the back of the sofa as I paced slowly towards him, “you do understand, Mr Wolf, yes?”
The watched me for a moment and shook his head, grinning. I shrugged, a vague attempt at feigning innocence.
“That could be interesting” he said.
I didn’t say anything before (bad, Elena, bad girl!) because I didn’t want anyone to subscribe purely to get our kinky play to go ahead. If it was going to go ahead, it needed to go ahead organically, based on the posts that I produce under normal conditions. Even with that, and a dash of planning what I was going to write about, we got there.
And so that’s the game plan, friends. I’ve got an absolutely manic day ahead of me today with packing, blogging,tidying and organising, and then tomorrow it’s curry and kink.. because how else would we celebrate Ten Shades & Me? 😉
Thankyou all so much for your support and here is to even more great things to come!
Stay well, friends.
Hugs & kinky cuddles,
