Pandering

Well, fry my arse with a flat iron skillet! Two posts today! It must be the end of times; the earth will split open and all of Satan's fiery little spankers will emerge with molten metal paddles, and roundly tan the backsides of all those who have strayed from the path of righteousness.

If you're reading a spanking blog that probably includes you. Sorry.
Oh shit, this one just nuck into here!

Anyway, the reason for this post; I have received an email from an anonymous reader accusing me of pandering to my audience by including spanking pictures that have no specific relevance to my articles. She insists that they are merely tacked on to titillate the consumer.

Is this a fair criticism?

Fuck, yes! The name of this blog is "A Spanking Good Time!" I like spanking, and I like to look at pictures of attractive people being spanked. I assume that you do too.

I have just shy of 100,000 page views in 9 months (for 2 of which I hardly added anything); I don't think that my thoughts on spanking are original or compelling enough to attract all of those visitors. I'm honestly sure that some of them are led here by the pretty pictures.

I have absolutely no problem with this; the pictures are always attributed, and I now include links to the site I got them from, so hopefully some spanking fans will follow them to their source and provide a little business to our hard pressed video producers.

I fondly hope that, having arrived here for the pictures, some of you stick around for the words too; I got into blogging after being inspired by the Consensual Spanking blog, and I only arrived there because I was searching for images that might turn me on.

If I'm being accused of giving my readers what they want, as well as want I want to provide, well, I have no problem with that.

You know what? I think we might base our next poll around the reasons that fans turned up here in the first place.

All the best

Sorry, even I don't have the nerve to add pictures of spankings to a post on pandering. What, you want to see some spanking? Shit, call me weak willed but here are some pictures from Pandora's Dreams of Spanking (and no one will ever accuse her of pandering; DoS is just what Pandora wants it to be, and all the better for it - I'll be writing more about DoS shortly).

  1. Aw, thanks Tim, that's a lovely thing to say. I for one enjoy the way you illustrate your posts, and it seems like the rest of your readers do too :)

    1. No, thank you for the support. I've been spending some time with your site recently, and I mean every word.

      But that's next week's post, i think.

      All the best

  2. Actually, I am coming back because I like your writing, Tim! But maybe I am an exception from the rule? It is definitely true that one gets more attention when posting pictures. I don't want Ludwig's and my blog to become a picture blog, though, and so I try to keep up a balance that works for me (some posts without any pictures at all, some with one symbolic picture and others with some more pictures, for example when we publish one of our clips). I think every blog writer has the right to decide how they like their blog to be, though! And since you like pictures – go for it! :-)

    As for your great report about your first experience with a professional spankee / spanker: You can post a link on Chross's message board if you like. I have done the same with a few of our posts. Just remember to mention that it is an M/F and F/M post somewhere in the header. I guess posts about switching have a lower chance to make it into the Spankings of the Week because as far as I know Chross isn't interested in switching, and the Spankings of the Week are his personal favourites. One never knows, though. I have to admit that I was completely stunned to find a link to our M/F + FF/M clip in the last edition...

    1. Ah, but that was a great clip Kaelah; I downloaded the high quality version, and it was worth every minute of the time it took to capture it. Brilliant video.

      All the best
