Bright Idea






I had a bright idea this morning - well  - I think it is a bright idea!!! You probably won't be as impressed - and will probably not participate - BUT - me - the eternal optimist honestly believes that some of you will "play along".

I have always wondered about the folks who stop by here to read (and sometimes comment) It started off with wondering how come folks leave comments in the middle of the night (well middle of MY night).  Yeah that was obviously a "duh" moment - anyone from the other side of the ocean - OR for that matter - the other side of this continent - would comment then.  

Then I wondered a little about who you are - are you just curious about BDSM or do you participate at some level - are you ever shocked by what I post - do you work in an office - in a school - are you single - married - gay - hetero - my mind just wonders WHO you are behind the words.

So I decided I would ask - cause the worst that can happen is you all disappear and never return.  (cheeky grin)

I am not looking for personal information that will allow someone to find out WHO you are in the real world............. I am just asking for a little information to flesh out the picture I have of each of you. You don't have to give me your "real" name and address and telephone number - no no no - that's not what I mean.....you could leave the country you live in - or the state you hail from - you can give me any information you are comfortable sharing.............. 

I think  I will leave this post up (front and center) for a couple of days - give you all time to read and hopefully comment....................

Ana said...

Hi morningstar
I'm Ana. I work in a large (for us) English High School as the data manager. I love my job and really like teenagers. I lived near Hamilton, Ontario for three years in the early eighties. I have two wonderful, adult sons but no grandbabies yet. I have been with my beloved, D, for nearly six years. I, too, have read your blog FOREVER, it seems :-)

Renee said...

Hi Morningstar, I've read here since way back when. You have known me in my journals as renee on slave interrupted and pet in older journals dating back about 13 years. I've been in a challenging relationship with my own Msster for 5 years. I live in the American version of the Great Frozen North, Alaska. I have 1 son and 4 grandbabies who live in the lower 48. Currently I'm in a Masters degree program which is challenging my 56 year old brain. I love reading of you and W, no matter the topic of the day, and feel that illusion of kinship the blog-O-sphere often gives us. Please know even when I don't comment I'm out here cheering you on. :)

Downunder Don said...

Hi Morningstar,
I have been in an erotic spanking relationship with my wife for 30+ years. We live in southern Australia and have a married daughter and grandson.

I recently retired from the IT field and am still getting used to retired life.

I have lurked around the blogs for about 8 years and regularly visit here.

Renee said...

In response to my journal, it's still at http://slave-interrupted.blogspot.com/
I only update it every blue moon for a number of reasons, mainly because I don't think there is much of an interest to read it and two, because of the details of M and my relationship it can be rather hard to write without the background being understood so I tend to just not say much about us.
So much has happened in my life since I did my first blog entry back in 2001 even I can't keep up with it at times :)

Hil said...

I'm Hil, I'm an Engineer, in my Kate forties, divorced mother of four, youngest is 12 oldest 21, sometimes in UK (I'm British) but mostly in Germany. Been with my Master for coming up six years now. Love the sassy writing whatever the subject. Also enviously enjoying the photography.

I've read here for quite a while now. In fact you were one of my inspirations when I first got started in the kink world, thank you and please keep it up.

morningstar said...

Downunder Don - wow a male - an actual male reads here and comments - thank you for speaking up :) Southern Australia certainly explains the "nick" :)

morningstar said...

Hil - I was one of your inspirations - I am humbled by that. Thank you too for speaking up :)

Sharon S said...

Morningstar, I retired from a complicated business. I am divorced with one single adult child. I am not White. I reside in the North of the U.S. Although I lived the life expected of me, I now want to live the life I desire. The perfect Dom for me is out there. I found your blog just like I found a book (non-fiction) that changed my life-nothing happens by accident. I love your spirit, your writing, and your pictures. Sincerely wishing you and W the positive energy of the universe, Sharon

Faerie Wings said...

Hi, I'm faerie, I'll be 50 later this year, I've been in a D/s marriage for 28 years, though we just formally defined it and decided to explore our kinky side a bit deeper about 3 years ago. I've worked in the healthcare field for almost 35 years. I have 2 grown kids and became a Grandma for the first time just 7 months ago. Your blog was one of the first I started reading years ago when we started exploring this lifestyle more.

Sugar said...

morningstar said...

Sharon - you know you were mostly responsible for this blog today. I was mulling over the folks who comment here and you came to mind and then the bouncing ball went to all the questions I listed. Thank you for giving me a little peak into who you are :)

morningstar said...

Faerie Wings - a brand new grandma eh?? I hope you enjoy it as much as I have ........ and thank you for sharing a bit about yourself

morningstar said...

Ordalie said...

Hi Morningstar! I've been reading your blog for about 5 years. I love your style, your humour and your photos of course. I've used some of them as wallpaper and I was sorry when you stopped your photo blog. I'm a frustrated sub so I lurk on BDSM blogs to compensate. I was a teacher but I retired a few years ago.
I'm French and live in the south of France near the Pyrenean border.

Hi, I used to Live in the UK, but have retired to a small Greek island in the Aegean Sea.

I do not have a partner, but have been in a D/s based relationship in the past.

USEDTODO SPANKEDHORTIC II said...

I don't think I have anything new to tell you but I am a hetro, single male, spankee (mostly). I live in Belgium but originate from England and am a hands in the dirt Horticulturist, so work outdoors. I am in my late 40's.

I do participate in spanking and have dabbled with some BDSM practices but have found that I do not fit into the BDSM mentality and am a committed Spanko.

I visit here because it helps me understand the differences and similarities between BDSMers and Spankos.

morningstar said...

Liz - thank you too for sharing - I find it interesting that you are not into kink yet you read here......... curiosity killed the cat sort of thing??

morningstar said...

ahhhhhhhh Ordalie - another commenter that had truly peaked my curiosity - I wondered mostly where you were from - south of France eh?? you write English extremely well...

morningstar said...

thelongbean - let me guess you are very tall???? (cheeky grin)

I envy you a little living on an island in the Aegean Sea it must be very beautiful, very quiet and very peaceful

thank you for sharing

morningstar said...

Prefectdt - you are right - I do know a lot about you - but thank you for sharing anyway :) You did explain why you visit here which I never did understand :)

Sharon S said...

Thank you Morningstar, I am pleased to have inspired you on any level. I have enjoyed reading all of the comments. It is wonderful to have a peek into the worlds of so many who care about you and W. It is a privileged to be on your team.

Light and Blessing to you always, Sharon

Ordalie said...

Thank you Morningstar, but I should have mentioned I used to be an English teacher.

Livi said...

Hi Morningstar. I'm in my early twenties and from the States (mid-west). I began reading your blog when I was heavily interested and involved in BDSM and power exchange; you blog helped me to feel more secure with how I identified at the time. Now, though my personal circumstances (especially surrounding BDSM), I still enjoy reading about what you have to say and I love that you're so willing to share your ventures in photography.

Last year I found your blog through another one and enjoy reading your take on things, no matter the subject. I experimented with some kink in my younger days but married a very straight-laced man. Once our son was grown and gone I started reading erotic fiction online and it reignited my sexuality. Hubby is very happy about this and has even become more open, so it's a win/win. Even though I am not submissive or in the lifestyle, I love to read about it from people who actually live it.
