Well this week got off to a majorly sucky start, I got into work on Monday and the first thing I get is a phone call from my brother in England with the type of news that nobody wants to hear. I was 50/50 in my mind as to whether I would go to another spanking party this year, but that choice has been eradicated now. Instead I am going to renew my passport and my trips this year are going to be going back home for the first time in 14 years. I’m definitely going to go once, and if I can manage it I will go twice so that I can get Christmas in England with the family for the first time since 1993. There will be more on that later though when we get all of the information we need.
This weeks Wednesday classic is back to the old favorite, Act Your Age. This was a fairly recent find so even the collectors might not have it yet. What I like about this one is that the spanking scene in this play normally takes part on the couch, but as you can see someone is nonchalantly sat on the couch. So it begs the question, is this spanking taking place in the play or is there a little impromptu rehearsal going on in the background?
If you want to read about the synopsis of the play which includes the relevant section of the script, then please check out Harry’s Act Your Age post. There are lots of pictures, some of which I have posted previously as well. (Update, just noticed that Harry has this pic posted already, however we have different versions of it)
As for this pic, it will be added to my own ACT YOUR AGE spanking folder.
Did you miss me? I won’t bore you with excuses, I am back now so let’s get right into this weeks post. There are still quite a few comments that I need to respond to on here, which I will get to this evening. Then I had that little promotion that I ran for those people who wanted the vintage F/M PICS, which of course I should have known was going to go mental. I think that I have now sent everyone the link to my drive though where the pics are stored, and I will add more when I find some.
This week I am digging into my archive for a rare newspaper find for Men Are Like Streetcars. I left the newspaper title and the date on the paper instead of cropping out just the pic, so that way you can research further if you so wish.
A happy Fathers day to all you dads out there where Fathers day is being celebrated today. To avoid a creepy factor, let’s just say that I hope all of the girls who read this have a surrogate father to rely on for their spanking today.
I had to scramble a bit to find a pic benefiting a day like today and I was able to come up with one. When I posted the first pic from this play I stated that I only had two of them, well here is the second one of those pics. (I linked the first pic again because when it was lifted from this site most of the additional cast was cropped out, so there is an edited version out there which in my opinion is far inferior to the original)
This will be added to my VARIOUS SCHOOL PLAYS album where you will find other M/F otk pics with a father theme.
Unfortunately I spent Sunday editing a video which took over 5 hours so I missed out on my Sunday post and then of course work sucked all my time. Anyway, without any further ado, it is time for something new for Wednesday. I don’t often post my paddling collection which is pretty vast, so I will give you one today.
Nearly three years ago I discovered an awesome picture of Mary Pickford being spanked in Pollyanna. What made the picture in the link so special is that it was a completely different pic to the known one of Mary being spanked in Pollyanna. Definitely one of my better mainstream finds.
The usual pic, the one that has been posted in different shades and sizes for a few years now, I have also posted before myself. Just recently however I came across an article that featured the pic. Now I’m guessing that the pic came first as we have seen it without the writing above it, so perhaps it was a stock photo that was added to this article.
Anyway, in order to try and make stories complete, here is the original article, in full, for you to add to your collections. It isn’t a thunderous addition to the spanking world, but it is a complete in context story for you all.
Click each pic for a monster sized copy that is readable. BTW, the magazine that this is from is called Picture Goer
Today I started to upload folders to my Google drive so that I can link to specific groups. It started off when I posted the option for the F/M PICS on Sunday and I thought that it would be a whole lot easier to send people a link to my drive instead of sending a hundred plus emails with a zip file attached. So as time goes on I will add various sets which will be available to those people who comment that they wish to have access to them.
My classic this week is direct from Ebay. I was trying to decide what to post today and as I browsed Ebay I found this one which made it an easy choice. The picture says “WW1″ uniform but I’m a little skeptical on that. The girl is clearly a flapper and while that doesn’t rule out a WW1 uniform, I think that it is more likely that it is just a serviceman.
In an old schoolhouse far away in the distant past, a switch was always kept on hand for unruly students. Actually, despite what it may appear, this spanking picture is actually from 1955. I know that it would appear much older but it isn’t. It is an unusual pose for a switch as well, in the OTK position. Surely someone can tell the teacher how to apply the switch properly. Perhaps she is a spinster without prior knowledge, in fact it might be wise for the principal to demonstrate on her
Exactly one year ago today I offered a small collection of vintage F/M OTK pics (LINK HERE) for the people who like those type of pics. On my recent survey 1 in 6 readers preferred F/M pics but I never post any to this site. When I collect my vintage finds I will swipe F/M ones if they hold an interest to my readers.
So here is the deal, the survey’s that I do are hosted by Google and therefore count extra when it comes to this website’s site ranking with Google. If people come to this site I am likely to make a few pennies, which then in turn goes to paying for the archive subscriptions that I subscribe to so that I can bring you unique rare material every week. So the more the surveys that get filled out, the better my standing with Google and the more opportunity I have to pay for material to bring to you. So, if you want the collection of 20 F/M pics shown below, just fill out one of these two F/M related survey’s BELOW, leave your email address and I will send them to you in a ZIP file. If you missed the first set above, the OTK set, you will have to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to get them.
Update: I’m hoping this works as I am doing it from my phone. I did some in depth research and there is indeed some spanking action in the film. Okay, so it is only one swat each, but it is a brand new edition to the spanking world. The spanker is Guglielmo Barnabo and the spankee’s are Tina Mannozzi and Teresa Palazzi. The spanks happen at two minutes into the video below.
Something a little unique for my Wednesday Classic this week. I have no knowledge whether there is a spanking in the film, who the two girls are getting spanked, or whether it is staged, and unfortunately I have no time to research it.
Due to the stats that I threw together yesterday I thought that today I would throw a double post together. Part one of course will be the MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS spanking pic, but in the second part I want to impart some wisdom to my fellow bloggers which I hope in turn increases the experience for readers.
The spanking portion this week features a rather dramatic response to getting spanked with a newspaper. Or perhaps he has just finished spanking her? The pic is from 1952.
Now for you bloggers out there, I want to show you a graph where you can see how creating specific folders for your work can increase your reader count dramatically. Now if you are already getting a million readers a week then this won’t matter, but for most of us bloggers we get between 600-1100 viewers a day so giving people an idea of where your work is can only help, right?
Let’s say that I go to a blog that features spanking stories. Now I will get the latest ones because they are right there on the front page, but what if I am looking for something specific? I have two choices, I can search and search or I can give up and look elsewhere. Now I’m pretty sure if you are a blogger you won’t people to stay to see your offerings.
So I will take myself as an example as a reader. If I go to a blog and want to read a story, if I can’t find what I want I give up pretty quickly, but, if the blog had separate pages where all of their stories are listed, I’m going to go to that page, see what is on offer and then starting clicking links. Here are my two story pages:
Now does it work? You can bet your butt that it does. Originally I started creating folders for my work quite simply because people were taking my collection and not saying where it came from. It got to a point where I felt my readers were being poached and viewing my offerings elsewhere. So I started making pages on this site to showcase all of the various areas that I was working on. It didn’t take long at all for people to start clicking the links I provided to my collections. In fact in this post alone some people are going to come here, click on the men are like streetcars link and say to themselves “Ah, so this is where all of those pics come from”. Same goes for the two story links above, readers will click on them and then they will start reading my stories.
Here is the graph that I spoke of where you will see that prior to setting up folders for my work, certain categories hardly even registered in the monthly hits department. Not only that, if you understand stats, you will also see that 33% of story readers either come to this site directly to the story pages or through a search term. I’m not even someone who writes a lot of stories, but as you can see my stories get read about 6,000 times a month. That’s 200 times a day a story is read, every day, and I rarely write stories. These aren’t fantasy numbers either, the graph is below showing you exactly how many people read them. November 2011 is when I started the story folders, the blip in mid 2011 is when I had a story linked and the link carried for a few months.
With over 250 responses in for the SITE SURVEY, I figured it was time for me to show you all the results of what you all like. Now keep in mind that while there are over 250 responses, no question was compulsory so none of the results will add up to 250+ because some answers were just for one category.
The first chart really is of no real surprise I don’t think. My whole purpose is to bring you the most unique, unseen pics that I can find. I take pride in the fact that while everything I post will eventually become public domain where nobody actually knows where they originated from, at least I know that 90% of the pics I post get their first run on this site. It is like my little niche in the spanking world, bringing you original finds that take hours of research.
It is interesting that 18% prefer the videos on this site when in reality I don’t post that many videos. I have a folder full of movie spanking scenes that I don’t think are out there yet, but let’s be honest, movie spankings are the niche of Chross and his team of researchers so why copy what someone else is doing? He does a fine job of that with his movie database and I am just as happy to add dozens of movie stills to compliment his collection in the database.
The one section in the first graph that is a surprise to me is the STORIES only generating 15% of readers’favorite section. Perhaps that could be that people like my stories, but prefer the pictures. I’ve included a small section of my stats underneath the first set of graphs (click pic for larger view) to show you that in the last year alone my stories have been read a staggering 60,000 times. These are real numbers as you can see, not made up ones. Mind you, the stories account for 9.9% of all page views as you can see so perhaps 15% is a good number.
The second graph is also not surprising based on what I do. M/F spanking accounts for over half of peoples chosen preference while 1 in 3 prefer F/F. If there is any surprise it is that 1 in 6 prefer F/M spanking pics, even though I have probably only posted a dozen in that 8 years that I have run this blog. Not surprisingly I do collect all of the rare vintage ones that I find, but they aren’t something that I post on this site.
The second graph is the graph that really does surprise me though, and perhaps when other bloggers are here to snaffle my finds they can pay head to what the audience might be interested in. On my site, two thirds of all readers prefer Discipline orientated spankings. Now I say my site there because that isn’t an area that anyone could really say that I focus on, the area of discipline. I’m about historic spanking, roleplay, fun spankings, birthday spankings, there is very little about this site that focuses on discipline so I was genuinely surprised by these results.
It actually makes me think of a story that I never wrote, though I do have it as a private video, where I disciplined ellee. Part of the reason that I never wrote about it is because it is a special, private moment shared between two people. Maybe I will ask her though if she minds me writing about it, if that is an area that is of interest to people. It is one of the very few times that I have ever spanked someone to tears with my hand. Well, let me clarify, the tears came more from my words and actions than they did from my hand.
And finally, this graph isn’t really of much consequence, but it is pretty much 50/50 as to whether or not people like audio spanking stories. I have done a number of them in the past, but the feedback never seems to be there. Yes, it may surprise you that feedback actually helps bloggers. If I do something and people like it by letting me know so, then I’m more likely to post more of it in the future.
