Years ago, before there was a plethora of blogs, I used to earn somewhere in the region of 12-14% of my annual salary from the links on this blog. Of course back then I was earning significantly less than I am now, and a few years ago I stopped posting referral links in favor of turning my blog into an archive of rare, unseen spanking pics. The one link that I left was Hot Movies over to the right there, that one has always had a good payout for me. I think that the reason that I got so lucky is that at the time, Hot Movies only offered 25% commission, and when compared to the 50% commission of most sites, hardly anyone jumped on it. I’m fortunate to have been one of the first spanking blogs to get on board because while it sells at half of the other sites, the amount of sales can be 10-20 times as many. Plus, a lot of other spanking bloggers snaffled the site directly from my site, and because of that I get 5% of what they earn as well. Hot Movies dropped the commission to 20%, but for those of us who were long time promoters we were Grandfathered in and we kept our 25% commission.
Why am I telling you that? Two fold really. One is for other bloggers to jump on board, and secondly, because I have been promoting a bit lately, this week my payouts went through the roof. It comes in ebbs and flows, but this week I earned enough to pay for the site for the year between the commission and sales of my own movies. A bloody good week. This will also allow me to pay back and pay for a subscription to an archive where I hope to dig up some rarities.
Now I’m not much of a numbers whore, it isn’t something that I pay much attention to in all honesty. I base my blog on integrity and the quality of the finds that I make. It is far more important to me that people enjoy my work, that is what is important to me. Of course I have been around for nearly ten years so there is a nice audience who come here anyway, but I want to be unique. A disclaimer that on Saturday’s is different, that is spam day, lol.
With that said, I do have a Twitter account. Right now I am at 956 followers and I would love to see that number increase to a 1000. So if you want to stalk me on Twitter, you can do so RIGHT HERE.
And finally for today, as I have said, I do use Saturday’s for a bit of spam, I dug through the archive of AAASPANKING to browse through the galleries.
Now let me tell you a little story before I post 4 pictures and a link to the full gallery. In the spanking scene I am fulfilled, I could want for nothing. For me it has always been about connections, the scenes that I enjoy the most are the ones where I develop a bond with someone and we are on the same page. A lot of times people will talk to me about spanking models that they have fantasized about for years, and there are times when I am quite open when I say that I haven’t played with every spanking model, not by a long shot. If we don’t have some kind of fun interaction and they don’t give me an indication that they want to play, it doesn’t work for me. I don’t mean any harm by that, but I don’t have a checklist of names I want to cross out. Almost all of my favorite play partners are people who just go to parties.
Now then, a couple of years ago I bumped into Stephen Lewis. We always have a little friendly banter over our hometowns, and on this occasion he was with a young lady. He introduced me and immediately I was like “Oh my science, those EYES”. As I reached my hand out to shake hands the first thought running through my mind was “I HAVE to spank this girl”, and that rarely if ever happens, there has to be some form of interaction, right? Nonetheless, in my mind I was saying to myself, have a conversation with this girl and see if you guys can’t get to play.
It was the next day I think when I asked a Brit who she was, and when they told me it was like my ice cream dropped off my cone. It was ZOE PAGE, a famous British top. You mean I’m not even going to get a chance to play with her? I was so disappointed, and that is so rare for me because I never base any potential spanking play simply by looking at someone. Even so, those EYES, oh my science, such a pretty girl. Then I felt like Jim Carrey in dumb and dumber.
“So what are the chances of me spanking you”?
“One in a million”
“So you’re saying there is a chance”? 🙂
Anyway, in the AAASPANKING archives I did find a promotional gallery of Zoe in action, just excuse me if I imagine a different top and bottom 😉
