Blog Birthday — it’s been 14 years!!

14th Blog Anniversary

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 14 years since I began the “Adventures of a HeadMistress” blog!

Many things have changed in the world, and happily, kink is a bit more “out there” compared to when this blog started. There are kink social networks, discussion groups, forums and such — and kink-related gatherings, conferences and conventions have gone more mainstream.

Real life gets busy and has it’s own distractions; but I hope I will still be writing my kink blog for many more years to come!

12 Year Blog Anniversary!

Today marks the 12th anniversary of the launch of the “Adventures of a HeadMistress” blog!

I don’t think I realized when I started this blog that I would still be doing it 12 years later!!

There have been busy timesand quieter times that come with the ups and downs of real life — as well as the shifts and changes in technology, but I have truly enjoyed sharing aspects of my fetish lifestyle, along with various tidbits of kink in the news.

I can only hope that I’ll still be around in the years to come and that my faithful readers and followers will be there as well!

Celebrating My 10 Year Blog Anniversary in 2015!

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the launch of the “Adventures of a HeadMistress” blog!

Little did I know a decade ago that I’d still be online and sharing my views on the kinky life with others. I must admit that is has had it’s ups and downs; from keeping up with changes in blogging software, technology, the never-ending annoyance of spammers and hackers, and so much more — but I still find it quite rewarding.

I hope that I’ll still be around in years to continue sharing my blog with my many web visitors and readers!

Celebrating my 8th Blog Anniversary!

Celebrating My 8th Blog Anniversary!

So, all told it has been 8 years since I first started this blog and much has happened in that time. I’ve welcomed so many new kinky friends into my life; most of which are still here, several have moved away or out of the community, and a few have passed on to the Other Side.

In celebration of this Anniversary milestone; I’ve been working on a major update to my “Adventures of a HeadMistress” blog, which involves a huge upgrade to the WordPress software. I know there will be many complications involved in getting everything to work properly. I’m not particularly comfortable working with raw PHP coding and CSS, so it will take a while to customize some of the “look and feel” according to my personal tastes. There will also be a change in the WordPress theme, as my old one is no longer supported.

I appreciate your patience during the next several weeks as I get everything tweaked the way I’d like it. Let me know what you think of the changes and the new look!

3 Year Blog Anniversary!

3rd blog anniversary

Happy Blogday to Me!
Happy Blogday to Me!

Wow, it’s already been three long years since I first launched my blog; I remember it was on Mother’s Day in 2005.

There are times when I’ve been really active with my writing and some quiet times; as life tended to catch up or overwhelm me, but I’ve found it to be an excellent tool for journaling my adventures and experiences in this magnificent lifestyle.

It’s also been a great way to be able to keep many of my kinky friends from both near and far informed on what I’ve been up to, as well as some of my future plans.

I hope to be able to continue along this journey and that you’ll stay along for the ride… If you’ve enjoyed reading my blog in the past; I’d really appreciate any comments you may have or mention any of your favourite posts…

Happy Blog-Day to Me!

Birthday Cat for my Blog Anniversary
Today I am celebrating the beginning of my third year of blogging!

It was two years ago today, on May 8th back in 2005 that I started my blogging journey, and it is hard to believe that so much time has passed so quickly… It was Mother’s Day and I remember reflecting on what a totally cool Mom I have — and still have!

Please feel free to leave a comment regarding my blog if you are one of my blog readers. I’ve also added a new feature: a Visitor’s Map, where you can put a pushpin to show me your location on the globe. I’ve been so fascinated with the variety of countries that people are visiting my blog from, that I thought it would be neat to see it in a more visual manner, so please take a minute and put yourself on my blog map! (You can remain anonymous if you wish!)

And thanks again to all my blog visitors for dropping by and reading my blog on a regular basis…

RANT: What the &%*# is ALT up to now!

Head up butt award

(NOTE: This refers to my former ALT.com blog, which has since been manually transferred to the FemDomme Society domain, exactly *because* I was getting so frustrated with them and the strict limitations they apply to all the blogs there…)

I reaaaaally can’t believe ALT lately… :rolls eyes:

I posted a blog at around 9:00 pm EST time last night, and since I was on my laptop anyway, I kept checking now and then for it to show up on the main list…

Well, it didn’t show up until sometime after 4am, and then it was with a bunch of others at once, so it didn’t even show up on the first page, it got moved on down to the second, so nobody even saw it.

I thought the main blog page was supposed to display blogs that have just added an entry? If this is so, then why the HUGE time delay for them to show up?

Why are the blogs slanted for a particular time zone? I mean I posted my blog at around 9pm, and yet it says 6pm on it instead? Don’t they pay attention to our time zones based on our geographic locations?

I am just getting more and more pissed off with ALT as a whole. I have several ALT groups that I own and many of the members were having problems posting. From having posts taking a day or more to show up, to not showing up at all, despite repeated postings. We had two of our Gold members complain on our behalf, thinking (erroneously I guess) that since they were paying members that their complaint would be paid attention to.

Well, guess again. Neither of them received any sort of confirmation from ALT staffers that the problem was being looked into, despite filing complaints twice.

This is NOT a way to run a business model. I mean ALT is just screwing people over time and time again, and not even bothering to reply to it’s paid members complaints!!

I know I am not the only one to have complaints about them…. What’s your ALT pet peeve?

PS: The image is the “Head Up Their Butt” Award, which ALT has won by an overwhelming landslide…
