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.................
