The 2020 Spooners

 


And the Spooner goes to:

Well, despite saying I would go by memory alone, I did actually use the Blogger search feature to help with this year's Wooden Spoon Award list, but I only went back a few months and I scanned the comments fairly briskly. Naturally, I had no problem listing our 'regulars', but I will say that if you are reader who has left even a single comment in 2020......even a comment to voice dissent.......YOU STILL HAVE EARNED A SPOONER. So sorry if I missed anyone who qualifies, but the following list is pretty fair in my opinion.

Heading the Wooden Spoon Award list are three people I know I can rely on even in the leanest of times. So congratulations to Merry, Dan, & Tomy who have been around for way more than just 2020, and who comment generously. 

More Wooden Spoon winners whose participation I appreciate include: Mr. Bill, Joe, Archedone, Sissysnow, Fondles, Hermione, Jack, Jhakov, Glenmore, QBuzz, Julie, Erica Scott, & Crimson Kid.  We can also add some newcomers to the list. I believe these folks began commenting in 2020 and are  welcome additions to our special circle: Alan, ZM, Baxter, Hortic, Max, ron, Redtail, & Steve S.

Lastly, I must award special Spooners to my dear reader/disciplinarians who not only comment on posts but often are the inspiration for them. (Besides, if I somehow leave them out, I'll probably earn a slip or get a direct spanking!) So congratulations to Ana (my Little Monster) whose Dental School schedule has kept her very busy, and Nickki who lately has been the star of many interesting posts and pictures. Love you both!

So congratulations to all winners.....even those who qualified but I somehow missed. A lot of effort goes into this blog, and while praise is always nice, it's not what I look for. It's all about interaction. Discussion. A sharing of opinions. I do this so kinky people can talk with each other, intelligently, cleverly, passionately. We don't need to agree, but life is a process of participation. As kinky people we may often feel left out on the fringes. "Collected Submissions" is meant to be a parlor for people to feel safe and among friends.....even friends who vehemently disagree. And not only an informal parlor where a guest can not only slip off their shoes, but a kinky one where they maybe even drop their pants to show off a spanked butt and still feel accepted. And so besides congratulations I want to THANK everyone ......heartily......who has left even a single comment. Your participation is what keeps me going.

And on this "Love our Lurkers" Day, if you are a lurker looking for love, please seek it on one of the other participating blogs. There are several. Because here on this day, I wish to recognize participation rather than solicit it. If you can come here and take the time to read and yet never in a year find the time to offer even a single comment, all I can say is.................

    1. No ceremony as yet......but if you want to suggest something, I'd be happy to listen. Maybe Merry can dole out spankings to winners who wish to visit her? ;-)

    2. Possibly, but with social distancing, it can be difficult. Perhaps a tongue lashing?

    3. Perhaps. Some folks get off on the whole scolding thing.

    6. Merry said, if I don't let go of (stupid) grudges, she was gonna (not) spank me, so, you know...

    7. Shilo: Hmmmm. Merry's wisdom and wishes are not something to be taken lightly. ;-)

    1. You're welcome, but a lot of visitors here would probably prefer the spanking over the award. LOL

    1. Welcome, morningstar. (I like the name btw.....there's a nice ambiguity to whether it refers to Venus or a fairly menacing medieval weapon. I like that)

      I visited your blog and will take a closer look tomorrow. Welcome to our little circle. Quite an eclectic blend here.

  7. An award? Me? Oh Boy. I'm gonna print the image out and put it up on my refrigerator with a magnet.

    Look everyone, I got an award!

  8. I’m one of those non-commenting lurkers you dislike (I think I commented once before a long time ago). I’m a wanna-be spanko in a very vanilla marriage who gets a lot of enjoyment vicariously through your blog and a few others.

    1. If you commented before, then I don't dislike you. LOL I'd just like you more if you did it more often. But, then again....you just did! You're off to a good start for a 2021 Spooner!

      I can see how not having what you want can result in a reluctance to comment.....but we post about a lot of topics, so jump in on something else if the mood strikes.

  9. Thank you for this prestigious honor! I will add it to my other wooden spoon awards from years prior.

    1. You're welcome, Dear. Maybe in a few years time, you might earn a Lifetime Achievement Award?

  10. Thanks for the Wooden Spoon Award, the only way I will get a spooning these days.
    I do appreciate the forum you provide for someone like me to communicate about things that I can't talk about in real life to anybody.
