I was confused. I had spent years struggling with my feelings about being a caretaker, a ‘Daddy’, and had a hard time knowing whether my feelings were valid. I didn’t know whether there was a place for my feelings in a world that often seems to focus on sexual pleasure over sensual caring, on domination over giving, on the requirements of love rather than loving unconditionally.
Through this blog, I set out to simply share my feelings and to hope that one or two people might share their own in response. Over time, your e-mails kept coming, you contributed through comments, and I feel like I know some of you very deeply although we’ve never met or chatted – you’ve simply made a comment, sent an e-mail, and I feel connected to you in a very special way.
In other cases I’ve lost the trail of the conversation – sometimes I’ve met you on-line or in person but the demands of life have made it difficult to stay connected over distance and time, and I wish I could apologize to anyone I’ve ever lost track of because the demands of life took my ‘on-line focus’ away.
Over the last three days over 14,000 visits to ABDLDaddy.com have also helped to break the record for traffic to the site. On Boxing Day we set a new record with 5,000 views, and today I woke up to find that I had 5,800 in one day, an all-time record.
I don’t care about the numbers – but when I set out I thought I might get a few dozen visits per day. Your interest and attention means a lot to me, and I feel so grateful for the gifts you give both to me and the world. Thank you.
This has become a community as much as a blog and I hope we can continue to share time together. So with a New Year coming – a gift back! I’d love to hear your ideas for future posts. Put them in the comments below or e-mail me! And hugs to everyone.
