First Blogiversary!

Today my blog is 1 year old!


I don't often delve into stats but this is a special occasion. Let's see what's been going on at Lea's Corner over the past year. 

There have been 35,065 visits

93,725 pageviews

There are currently 83 followers

This is my 98th post

Visitors have come from everywhere! From Jiddah, Saudia Arabia to Cairo, Egypt!

In the U.S. I'm most visited by those in New York, New Jersey, California, Pennsylvania, and Florida.

 MarQe of MarQe's Study have sent the most visitors my way.

My most common search keywords are "spanking sounds," "lea's corner," "spankovision," 
"lea spanking," and "scony." 


The first 3 listed there all made the Chross list.



I'd been in the spanking scene for about 2 years before I decided to start a blog. Maybe I still didn't know much by then, but I started it anyway. I've had a lot of fun along the way. I've enjoyed being able to share everything from the serious thoughts to the humor.

I've made new friends through the vast world that is the spanking blogosphere. Some I've met in person, some I hope to. There are so many witty, creative people out there involved in TTWD. I'm glad that I found this corner of the internet.

 
A special thank you to Joey who has been here since the very beginning. I really appreciate all of your support. To all my friends, readers, commenters, lurkers, wherever you are; thank you for coming along for the ride. Without all of you, I'd just be talking to myself. ;-)

Along the way, I hope that I've provoked a thought or at least provided a laugh. I'll try to keep it entertaining. And real. And sarcastic. Mostly sarcastic.

Happy Blogiversary, Lea! I hope you continue posting for many, many more years!

Maybe I enjoy your blog so much because I know you. Maybe it's because I hope to be "partners in crime" in April! Whatever the reason, you make me laugh, cringe, and think, sometimes at the same time...

Big hug -

Marne

Happy Blogiversary! I am so glad I found your blog on my journey to discovering my spanko nature. You have been so witty and welcoming. Your blog has helped me feel at ease with my needs and desires. Thank you! Here's to many more years of spankings and blogging and laughing!

Congratulations Lea! Although I am currently taking a break from blogdom, I do occasionally peek in on a handful of favorite blogs and your post today made me smile. It is always a joy to visit your place. :-)

Congratulations Lea. I have enjoyed your blog post from the first time I found out about it in chat. It is really hard to choose one post that is the best from so many terrific posts, but the Yellow post is my personal favorite.

I consider myself very lucky to have you as a friend and to have been able to share so many fantastic experiences; two weekends and a party as well as many, many chat sessions. You have brightened many a day with your clever wit, wisdom and sense of humor. Thank you so much.

I am honored that you mentioned me in your blogiversay post. :)

I hope your second year of blogging is filled with many fun spanking stories.

See you soon,
joey

Dearest lea,

It seems that time has really passed quickly since first I met you in Summer, 2009. I think you have matured, maybe grown a little taller and have become better able to handle a tenacious Top.

Your blog is one of the best sources for spanking information and humor on the internet, in my humble opinion. But I have one observation about your anniversary post: What? No Peeps in the confections?

Lea said...

@eileen, Omg, I hope I haven't grown taller! Thank you for your kind words. And this was surprisingly Peep-less. In fact, "Peeps" are only tagged in 12 of nearly 100 posts. Must do something about that.

Hey... Florida... we'll take credit for some of those hits. Big congrats on year #1!

:)

Lea said...

@Todd and Suzy, Thank you and thanks for the hits as well! :-)

Hermione said...

Congratulations, Lea! I love the picture of the guy hugging his computer. that's where my friends live too:)

Big hugs,
Hermione

Lea said...

@Hermione, Thank you! I thought that was a cute pic. :-)
