HollyBlue Appreciation Thread :heart: She now spends most of her online time at Bondage.com, :spank: where her heartfelt and ever insightful posts are reaching out and transforming a new group of strangers into online friends, just as they have done for the past 300 days on LPSG. HollyBlue (and previously in her Chrysalis incarnation), has been on this site since November 2006. I joined a scant 8 days before her, so I’ve never really known an LPSG without her. But I definitely remember the moment her first post appeared. I thought: WHOA!! Who is this woman? Is she for real? She’s been a major contributor to this site, making almost 1,400 posts and starting over 2 dozen threads, which have collectively generated more than 1,000 responses. And then there’s her stunning photo gallery … ah … enough said. But the mere numbers don’t tell the whole story. As her soulmate and Loving Master, I am privy to constantly seeing a side of her that not all of you (especially some of the newer members) may be aware of. Yes she’s a showoff and an attention whore, bright beyond belief -- and the most intensely sexual human being that I’ve ever known -- but she’s much more. It’s her humanity and her empathy that make her so special to me and to those in this community that have gotten to know her so well. She loves to compete and show off but she loves to share her knowledge and insights and enrich others’ lives even more. As a budding erotic romance writer, she’s naturally obsessed with all things carnal. But she takes the same passionate interest in responding to those reaching out with questions about meditation, yoga, mental health issues or diabetes as well. Her words are a delight to read, she's a delight to communicate with and know as a friend, (and yes it's sheer bliss to ever be able to caress her with my eyes, thoughts and physical touch ....DUH!!) and I am truly blessed to be her Loving Master and also to have reached out to some of you whose lives she's touched in a positive way.
