One of the fun things about keeping a Blog is the chance to reach out to people all over the world. I use a simple free system called "Statcounter" to keep basic statistics about visitors and page-loads. We now have over 50,000 visitors every month and logged over 2 million page-loads. It's very comforting to know that there are so many F/M spanking and traditional discipline enthusiasts out there! Statcounter also shows a breakdown of visits by country. Naturally the majority of readers are from US/Canada and the UK, but I am happy to say that we also have visitors from Australia, Europe, Japan, China and from almost every other country in the world. We even logged a few visits from Iran - (mind you don't end up with a real whipping you bad Middle-Eastern boys!).
One other interesting function provided by Statcounter is the ability to see what search-engine keywords or strings bring most people to the site. I proud to say that "Over Her Knee" is amongst the most common phrases that users punch in to Google, Yahoo or other search engines in order to find us. Some other examples are "traditional discipline", "F/M spanking", "spanking his bottom", "punishing males", and so on. Interestingly "petticoat punishment" and "petticoat discipline" are also amongst the most common search phrases, as are "corner time", "mouth soaping", "early bedtime" and "punishment enema" - so we can get quite a good picture of what people "enjoy" or "suffer" as the case may be!
Some people like to type long search strings which are often very amusing and descriptive:-
"pulled over her lap and spanked his buttocks red", "dressed in panties and spanked with her hairbrush", "a sound thrashing and sent him to the corner", and a great recent one - "as long as you live under my roof you will be spanked" – fine words indeed!
It's good to know what's popular when searching for new material to post. Please do keep sending me your e-mails too and any original art contributions which you may have. I get about 10 to 20 e-mails from readers every day - including some charming lady readers - and I do try to reply to everyone eventually (except for the two or three mails I get every week from people who assume I am female and ask me to spank them! Of course - if YOU are a female and would like to spank ME - well that's a different matter!).
