Happy New Year 2019 and some stats and findings about this blog (2018 in review)


In 2018 I succeeded again to have an entry for every day. Blogging daily is a challenge as there’re days with not that much to report. In addtion, I’m not able to write every day due to other obligations and vacation. Hence I always have some posts on stock and I try to pile up a few more, when I’m off got a few days.
In 2018 there were more than 225 diary entries and 110 simploring reports. Over all the blog grew by 376 new posts bringing the total archive of this blog close to 1,500 posts.
As taking pictures is one of my passions in SL and storage space is not free, I also changed the way I publish my pictures and grouped them to save space. When you click the pictures you can see them a bit larger. I also post the pictures on deviant art (Diomita Maurer at Deviant art). There you get the pictures in a higher resultion. In total I took more than 2,500 pictures on Second Life in 2018.

We had more than 53,000 clicks this year, a raise of roughly 15,000 clicks compared to 2017. That’s an average of close to 150 clicks per day. The blog attracted about 10,000 visitors, an increase of 15% compared to 2017. Most clicks came from Germany (15,800), the US (11,600) and the UK (3,200). The statistics show that in total people from over 110 countries visited our blog. Also the number of followers increased to close to 140! Many thanks to all friends, readers and followers.
Most found our blog coming from search engines (8,300), from scoop.it SL Destinations (1,050) (that’s from where I often pick my simploring destinations) and deviantart.com (1,000). Again not only the new blog entries attract readers, there’re also some “evergreens”. Actually no blog post of 2018 was among the Top 5.
The Top 5 Posts in 2018 were

1. Enjoying Bondage June 2016 – June 2016 – 560 clicks
2. Kara Bound – 352 clicks – April 2014 – ranked 1st in 2017
3. The Victorian Corest Story – Part II – 217 clicks – March 2017 (written by slave Flo) – ranked 2nd in 2017
4. Surrender Cove – 161 clicks – October 2016 – also ranked 4th in 2017
5. Enjoying Bondage January 2015: The Bondage frame – 129 clicks – January 2015

This blog contains a lot of memories for Mistress Jenny and me and for the people close to us in Second Life. It started as a little diary to keep up with all the things happening around us in Second Life and has grown with time. In the meanwhile I read back myself often to look up a date or to check if I came across a place already before. The diary entries became also more personal and you could follow how my submission to Mistress Jenny continued to grow deeper and became natural for me, but you could also follow how much I enjoy to have her as my sub, as my property during my green lights. She’s still and will always be owned by me as well.
I still have fun writing and it’s my intention to continue daily, if I find the time for it. Considering how much of our free time in real life is spent in this virtual world it makes sense to keep the memories like you do in real life. The memories are real and they stay vivid and present this way.
That we attract so many readers who follow our ways in SL makes me happy and keeps me motivated.

Thanks again for reading and following my and our blog.
Have a great year 2019 in SL and in RL, stay healthy!
Diomita Maurer

    I wanted to tell you I am one of those followers (United States). I am a domme in Sl (isabellathetrans) with four girls. We practice a totally different style of D/s. I’m enjoying your posts on how you play with your slavss. I’m thinking for this year I’ll incorporate some of your activities. The world of BDSM is vast with everyone having their own style, which makes it just that much more fun. Looking forward to what you all do next!
