Today’s the one year anniversary of Denying Thumper. It was started shortly after my fateful discovery of this thing called a “male chastity device” which, in turn, led to the discovery of the concept of orgasm denial which, in turn, led to the discovery of the idea of dominance and submission. Wow, such a lot to happen in just a year.
To observe this anniversary, I’ll borrow Steve’s idea and give you some interesting (to me, anyway) statistics:
- In the past year, this blog as received over 100,000 page views. I have to say, that blows my mind.
- Daily traffic is slowly, yet consistently rising. On the blog’s best days, nearly 1,000 might visit either directly or via a feed reader. Crazy.
- The top DT page is, by far, my CB-6000 tips & tricks.
- The most popular post is the very short “Birdlock user report” followed by “The most effective chastity device”, both thanks to the power of Google.
- Speaking of which, the most popular search term people use to find this site is anything related to the Birdlock device.
- The top referrer is, by far, Being Her Knight. That dude must be getting monster traffic since he sends me many times more visits than I send anyone else. The second best referrer is from WordPress where people are looking for – what else – posts tagged “Birdlock”.
- The top click out of DT is to Male Submission Art followed by Bend Me Over which proves people really like porn. In fact, 7 of the top 10 outbound links are to sites featuring pictures of naked people doing (sometimes) unspeakable things to one another. The other three are blogs, the most popular of which is Tom’s Edge of Vanilla.
So, as the planet is suspended in roughly the same spot in space it occupied 365 rotations ago, I am left to consider the future of the blog. I don’t know how much longer I can keep finding things to write about, to be honest. I’m not saying I’m going to stop, but how many times can I describe what is essentially the same sexual encounter over and over again? How many more words can I use to describe the effects of not coming? Of course, our relationship will continue to evolve and I’ll always be able to describe that, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to keep up the pace of three or so posts a week. Problem is, I’ve become so accustomed to writing that, when I don’t do it, I feel it’s absence acutely. I crave writing in the same way I crave orgasm and physical contact with Belle. In fact, when I crave those things and can’t get them, writing often proves my only outlet. I’m not sure how anyone does this without writing about it.
