We had a poll close, this one focusing on where our US readers are located. Here are the results:
Southwest - Rocky Mountaiin West
I'm not sure what to say about this one, other than the Pacific Northwest seems remarkably uninterested in DD and FLR blogs. I didn't have many preconceived notions of how this one might turn out, but I did think the results for the Southeast might be higher, give the prevalance of corporal punishment in that area of the country until relatively recently.
In case people are intersted, here are the most recent Blogger statistics showing the country-by-country breakdown of our readership:
I''m always a little suspicious of these figures, however, because I have noticed over time that the variability from week to week is huge, and I'm not sure what would account for that. It does make me wonder whether the statistics genuinely reflect where readers are located, versus where certain internet servers are located. In other words, are there a high percentage of our readership using services that disguise their identity by routing traffic through various proxy servers. Or, are there other explanations that to go way beyond my level of technical sophistication.
Anyway, observations on the above are obvisously welcome, though I don't have much personally to add. I would be curious to hear more from our non-US readers about the extent to which female led relationships, including DD and FLR, are accepted in their countries and cultures.
But, I also wanted to get to a topic that Marisa raised a couple of weeks ago, namely if your current relationship ended, would you continue to use DD?
For me, the answer is yes. To the point that if my current relationship ended, I think I would probably actively seekk out someone who was interested in, or at least open to, a DD and/or FLR relationship.
Finally, I've added a new poll, this one designed to test the extent to which our preferences for leadership in the home are reflected in our preferences in other contexts, particularly work. In order to keep it simple, I have assumed that men who are likely to read this blog want to follow the wife's lead at home, and that she wants to lead in that context. I know that is a gross over-simplification, but I wanted to keep this one relatively simple and binary.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
