Hopefully you had as wonderful a Christmas and New Years as Joey and I did. As I’m sure it is with many of you, the end of the year is always a crazy busy time. But coming through that, we’re getting back “into the swing of things”. 😉
Highlights of 2022 for us…
We posted our first tutorial video for the Excel Spanking Calculator that Joey created a while back and posted another video to our YouTube Channel where I show my Wicked Italian leather belt. BTW – Thank you all for the kind words on both!
We also finally got do and record the Readers’ Choice spanking video. Our highest viewed and purchased video to date.
Joey finished and released his eBook – How to Get Your GF or Wife to Spank You. Still very proud of his work here, and enjoyed adding my “two bits” here and there throughout the book.
We also started our Instagram page, and our line of merch! That was pretty fun and exciting for me especially, as I really fell in love with my new logo.
And the most surprising thing that happened in 2022 for us as it pertains to the blog…
We reached over 1 million page views! WOW! Thank you all so much for visiting us, and supporting us along the way. We really appreciate you all.
OVER 1,000,000 Page Views
So that’s just a quick and high level review of what happened in 2022.
2023 Goals for us regarding This Thing of Ours…
We look to up the number of blog posts we do. We also are going to start a video series of “How to Spank”. Where I will walk you through a variety of tips, tricks and demonstrations of how I spank. They are going to be very informational, and will basically be spanking lessons if you dare to share with your spanker. 😈 Many who have started down this FLR or DD (or whatever variant they have decided upon), have asked for some direction and or instruction on spanking, and so we are starting to work on that now.
We also have had many requests for OTK spankings, and slipper spankings. While I’m not a big fan of either, in appreciation for your readership, we decided to incorporate that into Joey’s next trip to the woodshed.
I’m actually putting approximate numbers on this spanking. 100 OTK swats with my slippers. I have 4 pairs of slippers that are capable of giving somewhat of a spanking, so I’m going to give 25 swats with each. Joey actually laughed when I told him about it, and when I asked what was so funny, he replied, “If you think those slippers are going to hurt me, you’re crazy.” So…challenge accepted Joseph! Needless to say, I WILL be swinging for the fences with those slippers! But just in case, those DON’T get my message across, I’m going to immediately follow that up with a good belting. Either my belt or his, but it is going to be a good one. And then…going to finish with this paddle. Why not start off 2023 with a BANG yes?
We had closed this paddle out, but I still like to use it, AND we got more requests for them. So…we’re bringing them back. At least temporarily. They should be available on our site soon – Spanking Paddle with Holes.
Now granted,it is possible that the slipper spanking will provide a “warm up” for Joey, which I don’t like to do for a punishment spanking, but with the addition of the other two implements, I assure you that a lesson will be learned by the time I am done. This will probably be the last OTK spanking we do for a while, but again, wanted to give something to our OTK fans.
We are also looking to expand our spanking implement offering. The Wicked Switch has been highly requested, but as I’ve mentioned to some, they are not easy to make. Lots of little nuances with them to get them just right. That said, we are for sure, going to try one more small run, later this year.
But probably just 4 to 6 more. And then I’m not sure when we’ll (ok Joey), will make them again. So…if you’re wanting one…keep checking back with us, and if you haven’t already, sign up for our newsletter, as we’ll drop the news on there immediately after listing them for sale. For the record, we don’t send out a lot of newsletters/announcements. I think we sent out maybe 3 or 4 for the entire year of 2022. So fret not, we won’t bombard your inbox. 😉
Joey’s trips to the woodshed – I need to, and plan on being more consistent with Joey’s trips to the woodshed. Because we started video recording these for your viewing pleasure, there has been more time than I’ve ever allowed before I give him the punishment spanking he deserves. Usually, it would only be a day or two, maybe a week tops! But now there are a bit more logistics to work out with recording them. Consequently he’s gotten longer reprieves.
This can be a little frustrating for me, because he doesn’t get “re-calibrated” right away and can still be a quite the brat. Where normally I would just take care of his backside and his attitude. In 2022 I handled some of that with more impromptu spankings, but I’ve decided that for 2023…if he has earned and needs a trip to the woodshed, then if we can record it great, if not…he’s getting it on MY timeline. Sorry Joey, back to consistency in 2023.
I think that’s all I have for right now. Oh, as Joey mentioned at the front of his blog post – Not Following Directions. We have over 40 drafts of blogs, where we started a post, but for whatever reason, never finished and published it. So…we’re both going to be looking to clear that out. I think we’re going to mention at the front of those posts, that this account or incident was “B.V.” (Before Video). But it’ll be good to get that content out there for you all to read.
So…Any resolutions for you in 2023?
For me…consistency in spanking Joey soon after he needs it.
For Joey…he said he wants to drop a few pounds and get back “in shape”.
Hmmm…Perhaps I can help? 😈😉
