Happy New Year 2020 and some stats and findings about this blog (2019 in review)


In 2019 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 for a few days.
In 2019 there were about 200 diary entries and 130 simploring reports. Over all the blog grew by 372 new posts bringing the total archive of this blog to 1,850 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 11,000 (!) pictures on Second Life in 2019.

In 2019 more than 13,000 people visited our blog compared to 10,000 in 2018 – more than 1,000 visitors per month! Just the number of clicks declined the first time since this blog exists from 53,000 in 2018 to 44,000 in 2019. In 2018 we had a few days with thousands of clicks (by only one person, I assume) resulting in an average of 5.3 clicks per visit. In 2019 each visitor made “only” 3.3 clicks.
The average daily clicks were quite stable in 2019 with 120 clicks a day. Most clicks came from the US (9,500), Germany (9,000) and the UK (2,900). The statistics show that in total people from over 130 (!) countries visited our blog. Also the number of followers increased to over 180! Many thanks to all friends, readers and followers.
Most found our blog coming from search engines (6,900), from Facebook (2,200), from scoop.it SL Destinations (1,250) (that’s from where I often pick my simploring destinations) and deviantart.com (1,500). Again not only the new blog entries attract readers, there’re also some “evergreens”. The Top 5 Posts in 2019 were

1. Enjoying Bondage June 2016 – June 2016 – 287 clicks – ranked 1st in 2018
2. Kara Bound – 280 clicks – April 2014 – also ranked 2nd in 2018
3. Simploring 2019 (121) A NYC Christmas – December 2019 – 217 clicks
4. The Victorian Corest Story – Part II – 178 clicks – March 2017 (written by slave Flo) – ranked 3rd in 2018
5. Simploring 2019 (49) HoPe – 147 clicks – April 2019

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. I introduced a new series in 2019, the “Backflash of the month”. In the “Backflash” series I select an old entry once a month and present it here. This way I force myself to browse in the archive and to fresh up a few of the many memories. For our readers this series shall provide an insight into our Second Life without reading back the many posts and it might also give reason to browse through the archives.

The diary entries became also more personal and you could follow how my submission to Mistress Jenny kept growing 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 2020 in SL and in RL, stay healthy!

Diary 2019 (199) December 26th/27th – Finally a green light again

Thursday, December 26th, Mistress and I met with slave Gwendi and Angelique in the afternoon and enjoyed some time together at Heavy Bondage Club. We chatted and exchanged about our Christmas activities. And we took Angelique to Extra Ordinairy, a shop for clothes,  where we got her Christmas presents. I went visting a gallery after Mistress had left to tend to her RL again. Our night was Chistmas-ish relaxed. Mistress and I were at Psi’s realm with Ann, slave Gwendi and slave Flo and later we went to Mesmerize Dungeon.

That night we had a particular fun. Mistress was wearing the tinkler, which is a bladder simulation for Second Life. In short it forces you to go peeing every once in a while. There’re addons that allow others to make you drink and even to force you peeing (which is embarrassing!). Angelique wears her timkler for several years now and Mistress made me wearing it permanently a few months ago. So now and in preparing of a green light that I was about to get the next day, Mistress wore a tinkler as well and she gave Angelique control over her and my tinkler. And Angelique had fun teasing Mistress and me. And that’s it about Wednesday.

Friday, December 27th, I met Mistress at club Domme a Domme in the afternoon. For me it was a particular date as I got permission for a green light from Mistress starting that day. I didn’t hesitate to exchange her collar with her slave collar and put her in a bind pose. Kitty was inworld shortly and joined us and we could exchange our Happy belated Christmas wishes personally. When Kitty had left, I leashed Mistress with her new nose ring and enjoyed just looking at her.

And at night we had our regular Friday night party – with a funny theme “Come as you are, wear something comfy to shake off the kilos gained over Christmas” – and so we did! Mistress Jenny and I had fun with Angelique, Mistress and she dressed alike and we had some chat and banter playing each others role – funny!

Merry Christmas 2019

We wish all friends and readers of our blog a merry Christmas. Enjoy time with your families in Real Life and in Second Life, just celebrate!

 

 

And for all, who haven’t seen yet the yearly christmas installation from Calas Galadhon “A Calas Christmas” here’s an official video of it. It is still amazing what “our” Second Life has to offer. Enjoy!

 

Diary 2019 (194) December 14th/15th Relaxed Weekend

I went on a longer simploring tour Saturday, December 14th, and visited “Let it Snow! A Winter Wonderland” (read also yesterday’s post). I had fun exploring it, really a Winter Wonderland! I was about to finish my visit when Kitty came online. What a surprise. I summoned her to me and we danced in this romantic environment, we caught up just a bit. Mistress Jenny, who meets Kitty more often than I do, keeps filling me in about Kitty’s news.

December 14th: Diomita and Kitty dancing at “Let it Snow!”

At night I first spent some time at club Domme a Domme where Ann found and joined me. I took control and tied her up in her doll suit. I noticed slave Flo coming online and called her. She had started a game of skipee (alone, so that she wins *winks*). I went home with Ann and soon after slave Gwendi and Mistress came inworld. slave Gwendi had been sick a few days and we were happy having her back. After Flo had won her game (surprise, surprise), we went to Mesmerize Dungeon for about an hour. Mistress and I caught up with our mutual news, we talked about the upcoming holidays, we teased the slaves and had fun. And slave Flo and slave Gwendi had fun teasing Ann as their future sister slave.

Back home we played a round of greedy, then it was time for Mistress Jenny and slave Flo to leave. I tucked Mistress Jenny in and went to bed early myself.

I had quite some time inworld on Sunday, December 15th. I went visiting Lairig Leacach  (see Simploring 2019 (126) Lairig Leacach) first. It is Serene Footman’s particular holiday sim and outstanding as all of his work. Once again, Kitty came inworld when I was about to leave, but this time I really had to leave.

To my surprise Kitty was online when I returned in the afternoon. Now she was about to leave but I could convince her to come home and to meet me and slave Gwendi. I took a fwe pictures of us 🙂

After Kitty had left I took slave Gwendi with me to Heavy Bondage Club. slave Gwendi was more or less absent and I had some distractions of RL as well. Our former slave Dana called me and I summoned her to us. She’s was quite restricted and still searches her place in SL while causing trouble and having fun. We caught up a little but, then I had to leave for dinner.

At night Mistress Jenny, slave Gwendi, slave Flo and I had 2 rounds of greedy first, then we went to club DeLust where we spent the night. slave Gwendi danced for us, slave Flo decorated us well and slave slut cecy showed up later and danced for us as well. We had a very relaxed night together with the slaves and it was crowned with tongetherness at our skybox after the slaves had left.

Diary 2019 (164) October 20th – smurfette slave slut cecy changed

Sunday, October 20th, I met with Jenny in the afternoon and enjoyed being in control. We went to club Domme a Domme first, where her kneeling at my side caught someone’s attention. Our repeated role reversal still confuses some people, yet we both enjoy it. We went to Heavy Bondage Club afterwards. Jenny and I caught up with our news, we chatted, read profiles and for me it simply felt good having my porperty Jenny kneeling at my feet. Before Jenny had to leave to tend to her RL I teased and licked her at home and got her juices to satisfy my addiction.

After Jenny had left I spent some time idling at Mesmerize Dungeon while I tended to my RL as well. Suzie (suziegirl1999) and Luci (Luci Glendale) decorated me, good slave girls.

Sunday night I had a game of greedy with slave Flo and slave Gwendi while we waited for Jenny to return inworld. She joined us soon later and we played another round. Luci was kneeling at the greedy table and watched and Ann (Transann) came by for a short visit as well.
After we finished playing greedy I took Jenny, slave Flo, slave Gwendi and Luci to the new Bound maids castle (read Diary 2019 (161) Oct 13th – Oct 16th – Bound maids is back). I had in mind showing them the place and thought it could be fun teasing the slaves with maid chores. But we didn’t get any farer than the landing point right at the entrance of the new Bound maids castle. To Jenny’s and my surprise, we found BC Baroness Capelo tied up and leashed at the entrance.
We all had fun teasing BC, who’s name was “Fucktoybaroness”, we speculated what her garbled protests might have meant, “please more”, “I love you”, “slap me harder”, “pump up my gag please”. slave Flo posed next to BC and called the picture “the beauty and the beast”. I called Angelique, and told her that Jenny and I wanted to show a new shiny object to dust to her. Angelique joined us at the entrance of the castle and she was not surprised at all. She had seen BC there before. We had the idea of taking BC with us and intregrating her into our sculpture garden at home. That’s something we shall consider.

After our fun with “Fucktoybaroness” we went to Mesmerize Dungeon – filling the club. We chatted publically and relaxed. Suzie joined us there and slave slut cecy, our smurfette, had her Sunday appearance. slave slut cecy can’t be with us often due to her RL and due to timezones. Her SL has reduced to one or two hours Sundays for more than a year now. But she’s very loyal and stays in touch. As her connection is weak she also crashes often in addition during her rare times with us. Because of that we had not changed her appearance for a very long time as we wanted to prevent that she crashes while changing her.
Jenny took care of our slut that night. While I tended to Angelique, Suzie, Luci, slave Flo and slave Gwendi, Jenny began to change slave slut cecy. She reduced her restrictions and made her wear less gear to lower the crash risk and she peeled our slut out of her blue/yellow latex catsuit – now slave slut cecy is no long the colour spot when she’s with us.

Time flew by quickly again and after midnight I took Jenny to the annex of our skybox, where I made her spoiling me with her tongue. It’s always hard for me to end my green lights and Mistress Jenny had granted that green light even two days longer but I can sense fairly well when the time to end has come. Hence I unlocked the vixen collar around her neck and ended the green light. Thank you for another enjoyable green light, Mistress Jenny.
We ended our Sunday in SL with a dance on the roof top of our skybox

Simploring 2019 (60) Kun-Tei-Ner

In April 2019 I visited HoPe, a sunken city, giving us a picture of how the world might look like when humans have left (read Simploring 2019 (49) HoPe). HoPe was designed and created by Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni. Now Fred and Lotus opened a new place named “Kun-Tei-Ner“. The name sounds Asian but it is a play on the word container.

I came across Kun-Tei-Ner by reading Inara Pey’s blogpost “A water world in Second Life” and of course I had to visit. The landmark description gives an idea what Kun-Tei-Ner is about:
This is a place years ahead of us with no land. Humans have produced a lot of things…and many things are useless in some years. A city grows up on a huge mountain of containers filled with broken technological stuff, abandoned or fallen from ships.

Kun-Tei-Ner overview

Consequently the landing point is on a swimming container from where you can enter the artificial container city. I decided to get an overview first and swam to one of the observation ballons a bit aside from the city. I could climb up and had a nice view from up there.

Impressions of Kun-Tei-Ner (1) – around the landing point and view from the balloon

Kun-Tei-Ner is completely built on containers and with containers. The containers are used for living, for storing, for production, as stores, as restaurants, simply for everything. There are several container islands connected by steel bridges. Finding your way through the container jungle is difficult. I mostly followed the little arrows which indicate which way you can take without ending in a blind alley.

Impressions of Kun-Tei-Ner (2)

Several of the containers are furnished, some of them very detailed. There are a lot of possiblities to sit down and enjoy the view or to let your mind wander. And there is really a lot to discover. I spent more than a full hour exploring and I haven’t seen everything. Kun-Tei-Ner is getting it’s power from 3 big windmills and from a solar panels. Humans have rescued some pets, I saw a cat in one container. They rescued some plants and used them to make this water world a little bit green – you see ivy growing at the conatianer walls and some roofs are covered with grass.

Impressions of Kun-Tei-Ner (3)

But there’s still industry. What comes out of the tall smoke stack doesn’t look really healthy. There are pipes and other equipment that look like heavy industry. During my exploring tour I sat down in a pizza restaurant and I visited the food market which is on a seperate container island.

Impressions of Kun-Tei-Ner (4)

What else? Yes, the shark. There’s a huge shark with a nacelle circling over Kun-tei-Ner. I personally think it doesn’t fit as it is a fantasy element and the rest of Kun-Tei-Ner looks as if it could exist. But it can also be a blimp, so let’s assume that. What made me smile is that I saw two seals taking a bath in the sun on a swimming container. The big billboards are also something to have a second look at. One advertises Skype “connecting the world”. There are many little details to discover and I must have missed most of them.

Impressions of Kun-Tei-Ner (5)

Kun-Tei-Ner is a facinating place. It has a message and it is build with with a lot of creativity and love for the detail, it has wit, if offers places to sit and retreat, and it offers the opportunity for many hours of exploring. I did enjoy my visit a lot. Thank you Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni for providing Kun-Tei-Ner and for sharing it with the public!

According to Inara Pey’s blogpost Kun-Tei-Ner was opened on May 19th and might be available about a month. Hence you might visit better soon.

Green Acres by Michiel Bechir

On Monday, April 22nd, I got a call from an artist friend of mine, Michiel Bechir. Michiel’s art deals with pictures taken within Second Life. By editing them Michiel tries to add a personal touch and feeling. I wrote about Michiel already before this year (read Simploring 2019 (29) SH Tutti and Michiel Bechir at Lyric Art Gallery).

Michiel has read my blog post about Green Acres, the sim that provides the three R’s. Rustic. Rural. Retreat, owned by Alsatian Kidd (read Simploring 2019 (47) Green Acres). My blog post inspired Michiel to visit himself and he took a picture quite similar to one I took over there and he edited it. The result is amazing.

Thank you Michiel 🙂
