Off to Africa

Dear readers,

I have had a wonderful opportunity to work in Africa. I leave at the end of next week. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to continue blogging, or corresponding with you via email. The village where I will be located is close to the desert and has no electricity, so any electronic method of communication will not be possible.

I will leave the comment moderation on, but will not be around from the 16th of Nov to publish your comments. Any comments left after the 16th will be published on my return, or if I am lucky from an Internet cafe in one of the towns nearest to were I will be staying. Likewise, with emails, please do not send me an email since I will not be able to respond. I should be back in the latter part of February 2008.

My very dear readers, I will miss each and every one of you and hope that the time will pass quickly so that I can be corresponding with you again.

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year! To all yea Scots out there I wish you a wonderful Burns Night. Enjoy yer haggis, tatties n' neeps - but go easy on those bevies!! ;-)

All my very best to you,

Several New Blogs

Dear readers,

There are several new blogs I would like to bring to your attention. If at all possible, please take the time to leave an encouraging comment (especially for the new bloggers) it can be a daunting prospect when first starting out when no comments are left. New bloggers can often feel isolated wondering if there is anyone reading their blog, some may even wonder whether it is worth their while carrying on publishing their writing. The best way to support the LDD blogging community is to leave a thoughtful comment wherever possible. This simple act can often mean so much, since it shows that you appreciate the time and effort it has taken them to share their thoughts and experiences with you. Blogging is not always easy and very time consuming...


Longing for Discipline is a very promising site depicting a woman yearning for the Loving Domestic Discipline lifestyle. N is a UK blogger new to the concept of LDD in her marriage. Married to G her only desire is for G to take his rightful place within their home and spank her…

“I am a thirty-something married woman dreaming of being spanked by my husband.”

Posts include, “Giving up Control,” “Progress on the Spanking Front,” and “Why do I Want to be Spanked”


Sara has only started blogging a couple of months ago yet her blog is already brimming with interesting posts! Sara obviously puts a lot of time and effort into her blog and seems to update every couple of days. This is a very interesting and well written blog, not only about DD but also family life and how the dynamics of DD fits around everyday events.

“I am 50 and married for 22 years. Two years ago Grant and I began a Dd lifestyle, and a journey into further self discovery as well. The purpose of this blog is to have a place to write about issues and ideas that can be publically shared and discussed.”


Cinderella’s latest article on Puzzle Pieces Fitting Together is a well written account about societies needs to readdress the balance from our genderless society. She writes about a return to a society where men and women are free to celebrate their differences, not fight against their natural masculine/feminine genders.

“I'm a 30 year old American girl, living in London. I am unapologetically feminine to the core and hoping to find a male-led relationship based on the principles of Domestic Discipline and Taken in Hand”


Anna Andreyevna’s blog takes us on an exciting journey to a different culture which allows us to perceive Domestic Discipline from a Russian perspective. Reading her blog is like stepping back in time. Anna writes that since the 1500’s a Russian document called “The Domostroi” stipulates how a man should discipline his wife and how he is accountable for his wife’s behaviour in society. Anna’s account portrays an era which is sadly reminiscent of better times, when Western society adhered to the same traditions, where the man was head of his house and family. It is really refreshing to know that there are still cultures in existence today, where society adheres to the traditional role of wife discipline.

Anna is an American woman who has been married to a Russian cop for nearly 20 years.


Lady’s Spanking Blog is a classic, timeless and very feminine portrayal on the art of spanking. It is very tastefully created which includes a multitude of posts written in these categories: "Ancient Art," "Common," "Images Lady," "Just a Cute Girl," "Poetry," "Spanking Art," "Spanking Memories," "Spanking Moments," "Spanking Stories" and "Thoughts About Spanking." Lady’s Spanking Blog looks at the sensuality of spanking as shared with her man Magic. It is well written and portrays some very mild references to BDSM without being in anyway offensive or pornographic. This is truly a delightful read. It is refreshing to find a blog which encapsulates femininity from such an elegant and feminine perspective.
